2/1 Near Coolest Blk in America

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Brooks Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90291, United States

The Space

This completely remodeled apartment is located just 2 blocks from what GQ named 'the coolest block in America', Abbott Kinney and less than 4 blocks from the ocean in Venice Beach. A short walk to all shops, restaurants and galleries and to Muscle Beach and the Venice Boardwalk, Rose Avenue and Main St in Santa Monica and both Venice and SM piers. The apartment has two queen size beds and a futon couch bed in the living room, sleeping comfortably up to 5 people.

This is a very hip and cool Venice neighborhood with a great Hispanic flavor in the local produce truck that pulls up daily and a woman selling fresh tamales each morning. You can experience any kind of food, art, culture and nightlife thing the westside of LA has to offer and not worry about driving or parking during your stay.

We are a kid friendly apartment building with many families, so guests must be respectful and no parties or noise past 10PM during the week. This unit does not have a television but does have wireless.

-- plenty of parking on street
-- kitchen with gas stove
-- linens provided
-- washer/dryer on-site

Please note that I just listed this property for the first time this summer, which is why I only have a few reviews but am happy to answer questions. You can also see on my own profile my (website hidden) recommendations etc if that helps establish my business dealings.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great location. Everything went according to plan and Alison was great to deal with

    November 2012
  • Allison has a beautiful apartment and the stay was quite pleasant. It was an amazing trip. :D

    November 2012
  • I stayed at Alison's for 4 weeks. The location is very central - a few blocks to the beach for a great run/walk, to Abbot Kinney for great restaurants and shopping, and a few blocks to Rose Ave and Main St for more restaurants and services. Alison was very accommadating and prompt to requests I had and wanted to make sure I had a comfortable stay. The unit was very clean when I arrived. Overall I had a very nice stay there.

  • Alison's apartment is in a great location, right in the heart of Venice Beach and she was a wonderful host. She made sure we got there safely and was there if we had any questions. The place was also really clean and homey, great stay!

  • Wonderful host - professional and incredibly communicative! Highly recommended it

    September 2012
  • Alison's place is great! It is in a cool area and fantastic being so close to the beach. A great space that was really clean and tidy!

    She had everything organised for us and it all went to plan.

    Free parking is also available right outside which is always a bonus!

  • Alison's place was really great. It was very convenient to the beach and Abbott Kinney was cool to walk down, both day and night. There was also a grocery store and laundry available easily. Don't go to the one at the end of 5th, though! They totally shrunk all my stuff.
    The place is nice and well maintained. It is spacious, but there is not a lot of cupboard space. We were OK with that since we were just living out our bags anyway. The beds were comfortable and there was lots of linens and towels provided.
    Alison, though we didn't meet her, was friendly and helpful and readily available by text.
    A few minor things would have improved our stay (neighbours were noisy some nights and some mornings; the addition of a toaster and a kettle/coffee maker in the kitchen would have been ideal), but the positives definitely weigh out the negative.

    Response from Alison:

    Thanks for your feedback, Jennifer. I have cleared out an entire closet with 30 hangers and a full set of shelves. I have also bought a coffee maker and filters. I appreciate your review!

  • 2 friends and I stayed at Alison's apartment for 4 nights in August. She was wonderful to deal with and was very accommodating to us. She can recommend places to visit and welcomed us openly. Location, location, location. The apartment is smack in the heart of Venice. This was my first time using Airbnb and with the lovely experience I had I will surely be using it again. I recommend this place to anyone travelling in the area

    August 2012
  • Alison was a lovely host, very responsive and nice! Loved the space - it was much bigger in person than in the photos, and the location is truly amazing - so MANY great restaurants and great shops on Abbot Kinney, all within walking distance.

    I highly recommend Alison's place, it's got great energy, clean, perfect location, and she's awesome.

    August 2012
