Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Buz was very responsive and read my mind when we arrived on a particularly hot day. Despite being close to the ocean, I was worried the house wouldn't cool down at night and my colleagues and I were discussing going to buy some box fans. We came back after eating an early dinner, and behold, there were three fans in the hallway! It did cool down that night, but the fans were an added bonus.

    Great location, attentive and responsive host, perfect if you want to be in and around Santa Monica and in a space where everyone needs their own space. Parking was tight for our oversized car, but I'm SO glad we had it!

  • Very well organised set-up, this was an ideal spot to settle into California from after landing in LA.

    Buz was accessible but there were no issues that required his attention during our stay.

  • We really enjoyed spending time in Buzz nice house close, very close to the Beach. It was great that four tandem bikes were included, we used them to ride to Santa Monica pier and to our surflesson in Venice. Thanks for great days in Venice.

  • Buz was a great host and he was always reachable. The apartment is great, big and beautiful. It is very close to the beach and the price was really good for what we had. We would love to stay there again!

  • Buz was a great host and the check-in/out process was a breeze. Great location less than 2 blocks from the beach. If you happen to like volleyball, there are courts right when you get to the beach.

  • Buz is an attentive, communicative and unobtrusive host. The apartment is clean, bright and spacious. The location is very convenient for walking to the beach or exploring Venice. Great place, great neighborhood.

  • Venice Sunset House was just right for us. We were celebrating our daughter's graduation from LMU and needed a place that was nearby & large enough for unexpected guests. It's close proximity to the beach and Main Street was especially nice and so was the off street parking. Our host was available if needed but we didn't need much. It suited our needs perfectly and we'll probably visit again soon.

  • Had a fabulous airbnb experience in Venice Beach at Buzs' place, All went as planned. With 2 teenages and 3 adults it was great we all had our own rooms. Off street parking was such a bonus and walking distance to the beach a joy.Venice Beach and close by Santa Monica offer great dining and shopping experiences.

  • Great location. Close and easy drive/cab ride from the airport. Half a block to Venice Beach, easy walk to Santa Monica. Good restaurants close. Easy freeway access. The condo is older and not fancy, but comfortable and clean. Was quiet during our stay.

  • A group I work with stayed at Buz's apartment for a leadership retreat, and the location was great. We really enjoyed being so close to Venice Beach! Buz had some single and tandem bikes that we used to ride along the beach path to Santa Monica pier. We also parked two cars in the available driveway, which was so much more convenient than looking for parking on Venice streets. At the apartment, we used all 3 queen-sized beds (3 respective bedrooms), the pull out couch (living room), and the futon (sunroom) for sleeping arrangements, and we cooked two meals in the kitchen and utilized the grill in the backyard. Our stay was lovely, and on-site amenities (bikes, grill, kitchen, laundry, parking) make for a more affordable, cost-conscious stay in Venice. Would stay again!
