The Ella House in Venice - Easy Beach Living & Sophisticated Life Style
Spend your next L.A. retreat at the charming Ella house!
Fully-remodeled in June of 2012, the 2-Bedroom / 2-Bath Ella House is beautifully designed to celebrate Southern California's indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Big windows bring in plenty of natural light to the spacious living room and dining room areas. Functional kitchen is equipped with retro countertop and cabinets as well as brand new appliances. Clean and classic California style front yard is equally welcoming as the indoor space. Feel the air and breeze when you chill outdoors, and indulge in comfort and peace when you stay in.
Ideally located on a quiet upscale street in the center of Venice Beach community, the Ella House is just a short walk to retails and cafes, and a 5 minutes bicycle ride to the "it" hubs of Abbot Kinney and Santa Monica Main Street. Sand and waves are only 2 miles down.
When you arrive, enjoy the reclaimed hardwood floor, open kitchen, mini bar, fireplace, outdoor grill, drought-tolerant garden, and modern amenities including Tempurpedic Cal King beds, solar tube lights, occupancy sensor dimming lights, big flat-screen TV, Bose sound system, and Fios high-speed wireless Internet. An on-site detached garage (one car) plus street parking. Well-behaved pets welcome upon approval.
Come and explore the diverse and vibrant mix of So Cal cultures. Stay at the Ella House and enjoy easy breezy California beach life to the fullest!
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 4 nights.
The Ella House is a charming, cozy and fully furnished little home in a quiet neighborhood with convenient access to restaurants, etc. It has an open and welcoming patio for outdoor seating and locked gate entrance for added sense of security. We had to stay there for a few nights because of termite tenting, and it was like having a vacation in town.
In addition, the hosts offer thoughtful conveniences for guests such as filtered water, washer/dryer, television with access to all kinds of movies and channels, bathrooms with plenty of towels and toilet paper, and garage for one car. The place was clean, nicely decorated but not cluttered, and the beds were comfortable. The low bed and couch made it easy for my elderly mother to get in and out of it.
I would stay there again in a minute.
House was perfect for our visit. We were here for our daughter's graduation from LMU (just 10 minutes away) and found the house to be a great place to congregate over the long weekend. We were two adult couples staying here and the house was plenty roomy for the four of us as well as for later when we had more family coming over to celebrate the graduation. Big kitchen, nice open floor plan, comfy beds and very attractive decor made this a house we would love to stay at again. Neighborhood was quite peaceful, too.
Great placebo stay with all the essentials provided for. The location was perfect. Just as advertised.
plusses: Location, configuration, peace and quiet.
negatives: arrival procedure was not as described in the instructions so we spent a long time late at night trying to gain access. There is no key box and no key, simply a keypad. In the dark and without a courtesy light this is difficult to action. There was no plug for the bath and we could not buy one locally so the bath was not useable. Very limited local instructions. It would be helpful to list a nearby bakery, food store, hardware store etc. Very limited crockery and cutlery, six of anything meant that our party of 4 had to use the dishwasher for every meal.
Thank you so much for your comments. The Ella House is located in an ideal location of Venice. Quiet but yet very close to the trendy areas. We strive to give our guests the best vacation home experience possible. Therefore, we welcome any suggestions our guest can give us. We will add a porch light in the front of the house for easier entry during late check-ins. Also, we will provide additional information on our guest manual to include more local stores that are convenient and near the house. Regarding the quantity of dishware, we plan to provide 2 additional sets of everything for a total of 8. We believe that the above changes will help our guests to better enjoy their stay. It is our goal to maintain our already high-rating from our past guests and hope to make each guest's experience as special as possible.
The Ella House in Venice Beach was a perfect place for my colleague and I to stay while visiting the area for business. The house is private, contemporary, very clean, and super convenient. The two bedrooms and two baths made it a great share for work, and the beds were exceptionally comfortable. I only wish we had more time to hang out there and enjoy the large patio and fire pits!
Being back home, we still feel the nice and relaxed spirit of your house. We had a great week – in the spacious inside as well as at the lovely porch. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms were just perfect to facilitate our needs. Big kitchen, open dining room attached to the living room – much more than we had expected. Everything is in a very good shape with some nice little details.
Thank you very much for your hospitality and hope to be back some day.
