Buz's house has a really convenient location with only several minutes' walk to the beach, though it takes us some time to find the house. The house is clean and surrounded by trees. I'm definitely willing to visit Santa Monica and live in this house again.
The place is located very close to the beach and therefore amazing for the day time. We had great breakfast in the area and there are a couple of nice bars (Hotel Erwin!!!) in the area. We only stayed for 1 night and all amenities have been really good. During night time there are a lot of homeless people in the area which one has to get used to.
Saying that we wouldn't recommend exceeding a number of 7-8 people to stay there at the time since there is only one bathroom.
This was our second time at Buz's Venice beach house. We had four families (8 people, including two kids) with us and stayed in the top and middle floors. We love this place and hope to come back again! The apartments have everything you need, with so many sleeping options, they hold more people with the pull out couches and little hidden away sleeping areas. We especially love the location -it is so close to the beach and all the interesting spots along the boardwalk yet it is quiet, safe, and has a residential feel. Having the bikes, boogie boards, and sand toys was a huge bonus that we took advantage of. Buz is always available by email and phone if there are any issues or questions and Kevin, who works for Buz, was so friendly and helpful- he immediately stepped in when there was an issue with the fridge, an accidentally changed door code (thanks to my kids), and even found us a tiny bike for my 6 year old just as we were about to go rent one. Highly recommended spot. Thank you Buz and Kevin!
The guys all loved this place for our bachelor party. Great neighborhood smack dab (hehe) on Venice Beach! Downtown is a cab ride away but I much prefer the scenery and people here.
Great place, with a perfect location within a stone's throw to the beach... not to mention, a variety of old beach cruisers and tandem bikes free to explore with! The apartment itself was clean, bright, and has an awesome vintage stove that adds character. Buz was responsive and friendly, accommodated our request for early check-in, and let us leave our bags in the locked laundry room after check out while we explored the beach.
The house was perfect for our needs and exactly as described. There was a glitch with the wifi and Buz responded quickly and was very helpful and accommodating. I recommend Venice Sunset House- you won't be disappointed.
