Spent a three day weekend at Zen-up. The place was clean and well appointed. Andrew and the Property manager Jason communicated very well. A short walk to restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay here again.

What a great place!!! Great location, super clean and the property manager, Jason, was awesome. We had a last minute change for a party since hurricane Harvey ruined our TX trip. We booked the place at 2am the night before and he was so accommodating! Would highly recommend!

Andrew has a an awesome place that is perfectly sized for groups and close to the beach! He communicates well ahead of time and also during the trip if you need anything. If you are looking for a place to check out the Venice/Santa Monica area, this one should fit the bill.

Andrews place was great and perfectly advertised. We enjoyed our stay and had plenty on room for 5. Rooms are large enough we never felt on top of each other. I was surprised by the amount of pillows on each bed and extras in closets. Hosts were very friendly and available. We would stay with them again. Only small complaint is the lack of pots and pans. We found it challenging with only one large pot for cooking. Location is great!!

Andrew User ProfileAndrew is a superhost.

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.
