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.
Loved our stay at Buz's Venice house! We called it our "house by the sea" the weekend we were there because it's literally steps away from the beach. Also steps away from a cute downtown area with lots of coffee shops and friendly people. Best part is that it's a short walk from Abbot Kinney, which is a great place to spend the day. Super easy to communicate with Buz and easy check in and check out. Definitely recommend!
Buz was a great host! We were able to contact him easily when needed and the instructions to get into the rental were spot on. The apartment is in a superb location! We walked down to Abbot Kinney for dinner and walked along the beach a few times. The place is just as described. Very cute and homey. The ability to do laundry onsite is also really nice! I only wish we had been able to spend more time there!
I spent one night at Buz's apartment. The location of Buz's apartment was spot on. Everything is just minutes away. The lighting and size of the apartment was very nice as well. It definitely had an antique charm to it, adding the the Venice Beach experience even more. We had 10 guests over, and we found the place very comfortable and clean. Parking surprisingly was not that hard to find near the streets. Nothing really went wrong with the trip. I guess all I can say is that there was a bottle of grape juice left over in the fridge from the past guests and the drainage in one of the sinks in the kitchen was clogged (Probably from the previous guests as well). Other than that, Buz was very accommodating and answered all my numerous questions. (Sorry Buz). Highly recommend!
A group of five of us stayed at Buz's apartment, and it was a fantastic stay. The apartment was clean and spacious, and there was a ton of natural light in the living room. The location was extremely close to the beach, and a nice walk to Santa Monica. Buz provided us with very detailed instructions, and we were very comfortable during the stay. There are indeed 5 beds, including a futon and a pullout couch. No complaints!
