Everyone is extremely kind and outgoing. You will most certainly fall in love likely want to come back as many previous guests have done in the past.
You are just minutes away from the expansive white sand beaches of Venice and Marina Del Rey Beach where you can spend the day enjoying the sand and sun and experiencing the shopping and people watching.
To the left of the Venice Pier is what neighbors call, "secret beach", a huge stretch of the quiet, powder sand beach of Marina Del Rey's Peninsula. Sit in the sun or walk north of the Venice Pier and you will come upon the famous Venice Beach Boardwalk with shops, artists, street performers, beach bars, beach restaurants and of course, more beach.
Continue on your walk or bike ride and you next reach Santa Monica, then Malibu. All easily done on bike.

Everything was great! The place was as described and was centrally located.
The apartment was neat and clean, and the host provided beach mats and a guidebook with directions to the laundry room, a map of the area and local recommendations.
Great location, great place. Super clean & lovely apartment. Very responsive and helpful host. Parking spot in front of building so convenient. 3 min walk to multiple nice restaurants & cafes (unlike on Boardwalk). Highly recommend.
Great place. Centrally located near beach with great food and drink spots. Easy check in and the place is exactly like the pictures. It has everything you need, towels, shampoo and soaps. Overall very relaxing and modern place.
Great location close to beach, if we have time, always walk to the beach to enjoy it. The bed is very comfortable and clean, nice place to stay.

About the Host, Andrew
PLEASE READ OUR REVIEWS
After many years of traveling around the world I settled down in Venice Beach a decade ago. In these years, I have been managing short term rentals and have been fortunate enough to create relationships with some of the most interesting people in our global community.
My passions range from the surfing, volleyball to all things tropical. I also have spent a lot of time developing businesses and travel between NY and LA.
Our building has been home to Actors, Artists, Activists and families from around the world. I strive to share the best parts of Venice while also allowing guests to create their own unique experiences.
