It was my first experience with Airbnb and we were happy that everything worked out. I had only contact with Buz through E-Mail and had all the information we needed.
The Location is really close to the Beach and all 5 of us had a Place to sleep. Good offer compare Price/Accommodation/Location. Would stay there again...
Buz's emails and reminders described the experience and stay perfectly. He gave clear instructions for parking and entering the building. The house was clean and even included extra clean linens if we needed them. It was a great place to host my friend's bachelorette party. There were about 10 of us and it was the perfect amount of space we needed. The kitchen was nice and clean and had all the cooking appliances we needed. The house is conveniently located near Main Street, the walk was less than 10 minutes. Unfortunately, it rained during our stay, so we didn't have a chance to experience the beach. Thanks Buz! If you're looking for an affordable place for a large group, this is the place for you!
Buz gave excellent instructions and the unit is in a great location. We only had an overnight stay but everything was as expected, although some minor maintenance items like replacing some faulty power points would enhance the experience.

The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Although we did get the opportunity to meet Buz (who I have heard is wonderful), our communications were timely, helpful, and simply excellent. The house itself was great as well. It is much smaller feeling once you enter, and everything is a bit less nice than pictured, but overall the house was almost perfect for our needs (group of seven) and we have little room for complaint. Warning: the one bathroom can get tiring for a large group and although it says it can sleep fourteen, I would never try to squeeze in more than eight or nine). As for the neighborhood, it's no seedier than the rest of Venice Beach, and it is convenient to have a front alley walkway instead of a city street to access the beach. Parking is tight in the back but we managed even with two cars. The location is perfect for anyone who is planning on going to the beach or the Strand frequently, and the communal bikes were a blessing.
Bottom line is that if you are looking to avoid pricey hotels, want to cook for yourself often, and enjoy a longish stay in Venice with close access to everything, this listing is perfect for you. Cheers to a fantastic stay.
Nice location! Host was very helpful. House is a bit old but other than that, everything was great. Thank you.
