Have this lovely ocean view studio all to yourself for a home away from home to sight-see, shop, or explore LA. Or have your own space while visiting family!
The beach and the famous part of the Venice Boardwalk starts 300ft (100m) from the building, and the windows and balcony all have of the sand and sea. Want to watch the sunset with a glass of wine? All set! A quick walk or run on the beach before starting your day?
Venice Beach is the #2 sightseeing destination in California and it is a five minute walk south, with the skate park, Muscle Beach, outdoor basketball courts and the skating guitar man. Just 5 blocks east is the Abbot Kinney neighborhood, full of really good restaurants, places to get a drink - coffee or adult style - or find beautiful and unique gifts and clothing.
Santa Monica is a 30 minute walk to the south, with the pedestrian Promenade, with shops, restaurants and nightlife, as well as the Santa Monica Pier - with a roller coaster and a trapeze school!
The neighborhood has all the sounds of the beach during the day - including the drums on Sundays - but things calm down at night and the early morning is quiet and beautiful!
The apartment itself is on the third floor of a three story building, with amazing views and lots and lots of light. Queen sized bed and full kitchen (big refrigerator and gas stove) if you'd prefer to cook or just make your own breakfast.
There are coin operated laundry machines available for use just one floor above.
Parking is street parking.

I reserved this place for my parents as they were visiting.
Great location. Very clean and cute little place. Super bright.
Will definitely recommend this place for the next visitors.
We really enjoyed the apartment... just what we were looking for and the perfect location. Really sunny with lots of windows, just half a block off the main drag of Venice beach. Sitting area on the balcony, a couch, and a full kitchen were great.
Nice touches like bottled water, fruit, snacks, tea/coffee, milk/juice, chocolate.
Shelby was prompt in responding, really nice and flexible about meeting me, and accommodating to help me find parking areas.
If you are into TV, (I don't even have one at home, so I totally was fine without), there is not one here. Why would you want to watch any while basking in the beautiful sunshine and beach anyway?
Shelby was a great host, who worked with my busy schedule to ensure an easy check-in/out. The studio was in a great location and has great ocean views. It was clean, bright and spacious with a large balcony and a courtyard, where I could lock my bike at night. The only addition that I would have liked to see would have been internet, but I know that Shelby is already working on this. Overall, this is an incredible space for the price. I'll be staying here again when I'm next in town.
Shelby's place was in the best possible location for Venice Beach! The apartment was very clean and close to the beach. Shelby was a accessible and friendly host. We would recommend this apartment to anyone that is after a full Venice experience.
We had a great time for the 4 nights we were here. The photos don’t do the place justice as it is much bigger and brighter than it appears. Host is great at contact leading up to the booking. Parking can be a pain, but manageable. Close to the beach which is great, but also brings noise (especially the awful drumming circle), plus the crazies at night. No Air Conditioning, nor ceiling fan, which means it can get HOT at night during the summer. We actually had to go buy a fan whilst we were there as there wasn’t one available, nor did the host offer to provide one or to compensate us for the one we bought and left behind. Apartment was relatively clean compared to the block itself. Santa Monica is easy to get to, as is the Abbot Kinney area of Venice.
It is a wonderful apartment and we enjoyed our stay! It was very clean and looked the same as shown in the pictures.
The room was clean and nice, had all we needed. It is right by the crazy beach and walking distant from the very nice abbot kinney road. The house is a little dirty, as the street. Very nice landlord!
Shelby was a great host! Very concerned with my stay and always giving prompt responses to my questions.
The apartment is good, very clean and well furnished. The beachview is really nice.
Be aware that the building is not as nice as the apartment, but still a very calm place. The 2 stories can be difficult to climb with you are carrying a lot of luggages (my case). And parking nearby is not easy during the day (between 8am and 8pm).
Venice is cool, if you are into this mood. But a not very recomendable neighborhood for a more classic minded kind of traveller. Actually, Venice was a little disappointing to me because there's not much going on during the morning and after 8pm (just the hours that I was planning to explore it).
Shelby was a great hostess and we enjoyed our flat - with sea views from the balcony and windows. Although the second bed was an airbed, you wouldn't have known as it was as comfortable as a normal bed. Flat was clean and we appreciated the toiletries and drinks that were provided. Location was good for access to beach during the day with its lively atmosphere. We were surprised however to find that the beach was deserted at night and considered a no go area. Venice Beach is an ideal location for sunny days on the beach with lots of activities and people watching (dolphins even visited the beach!), just not the night life. Abbott Kenney Rd is nice to wander down both day and night with good restaurants and icecream etc.
I had a wonderful stay at Shan & Shelby's! It was everything it promised and the nearness to the beach is of course nothing but amazing. My favourite coffee (Latte) place this side of the atlantic, GROUNDWORK, is just a couple of minutes walk from the apartment!
Shelby was very friendly and easy to deal with, perfect host!
Not having a parking was a bit of a problem for me to be honest but that was my own fault for forgetting to check before booking, but other than that - I have nothing but good things to say! Loved it!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
