Location! Location! Location! That and funky bicycles provided by Buz- made our trip to Venice. Wonderful restaurants and activities in the area - 1/2 block to the beach! North to Santa Moncia and South to Marina del Ray - all on the bike path.
The photos of Venice Haven are exactly as this listing is. Don't embellish in your mind. Small living /kitchen areas, large bedroom area, nice bathrooms. Parking space! Coffee! Tight spiral staircase and all closets are downstairs - suitcases don't go up/down it very easily. It was a great Venice Experience!
Staying at Buz's place allowed us to engage the local culture and activities with ease and immediacy...one block walk and you are there! Moreover, from here we were able drive to Sanata Monica, LA and Hollywood quickly (even with the LA traffic being what it is). In short, you really can't go wrong staying at Buz's place. Thanks Buz!
Second time I rent one of Buz appartment for my family visiting from France. great location, parking, nice place, I will rent again!!
We didn't get to meet Buz, but the stay went smoothly and fine. Great location, just 2 min of walk down to the beach. Cozy apartement and fittet 7 persons pretty well
We did not have much contact with Buz other than some texting but he was quick to respond when we did text. He gave perfect instructions on getting in and where to park. Mostly, the area was amazing. The street was quiet but a quick 1 minute (if that) and you are in the middle of the venice beach strand crazyness to the left and beautiful Santa Monica Boardwalk to the right. Close to abbott kinney(probably a 4-10 minute walk) and convenient to get to the santa monica pier and malibu. We didn't spend much time in the apartment and there was plenty of space but don't expect luxury. This has everything you need, a small kitchen, two bathrooms a loft bed when you walk in, a couch, two tv's, a queen bed, and another couch on the bottom level. Everything was clean but definitely a little run down and seemed to be typical Venice Beach. You can really hear the upstairs neighbors and anything outside is heard clearly as well. We did not get a chance to use the bikes. There is parking which is extremely helpful in this area. Parking is tight so be sure not to get a big car if you are renting. Sheets, beach towels and shower towels are provided.
Bottom line: Great location, good price! Definitely recommend if you want to be near the beaches.
Fantastic location, and Buz was very responsive to any of our requests or questions. The information give. To us prior to our stay was really informative and great. The apartment has everything you need, but not much more. Would surely stay there again. Be aware of that there are some noises from the other apartments though.
