Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Ro and Tao's space was an ideal retreat - the property is beautiful and unique. so much amazing energy has been put into it! perfect location with awesome restaurants, beach close by, great shopping and laid back vibes... would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    March 2014
  • We enjoyed a three day stay at Ro and Tao's lovely home in Venice. The place was exactly as describe and was a wonderful base for a long weekend adventure. We particularly appreciated the very quiet neighborhood, the predictable parking right in front, a VERY comfortable bed, and Ro and Tao's cozy, artful and tasteful aesthetic. We had a quick question for our hosts during our stay and they got right back to us. All in all a great place.

    March 2014
  • Home away from home! Tao and Ro have create something quite special here, vintage meets retro just plain cool... We planned on 2 nights but ended up staying for 5!

    February 2014
  • For anyone who wants to drop into Venice's very now scene- you can do no better than the funky compound in the heart managed by Roisin and Tao.

  • Beautiful place, very gracious host, great location near the beach and Abbott Kinney. Like other reviewers said, if privacy is a big concern for you, this might not be the right place since there are sometimes other people staying around the property - though I'm pretty private and didn't mind. Depending what time of year you're there, it gets a bit chilly, but I also sleep well in cold weather, so I didn't mind. Ha.

  • This is a really good place to stay in Venice Beach, I would totally recommend it to any of my friends so I have no trouble recommending it to you AirBnB strangers! I really liked the wood ceilings, nice kitchen, great artwork and lots of good books, cool orange couch and tv with lots of channels, nice stereo, powerful shower and awesome outdoor claw foot tub, neat RV's on the property and nice landscaping in a yard that my doggies enjoyed. Great location, far enough away for there to be lots of parking but easy walking distance to Abbot Kinney, Rose Ave and the beach.

    January 2014
  • This was my first time with airbnb. It couldn't have been a more fantastic and welcoming experience. Tao and Roisin are wonderful hosts and much more than that. The house with it's beautiful garden space is a stylish oasis with a charming vibe. Best location, minutes to Beach and Abbot Kinney. Hope to return soon. I can only highly recommend this unique and beautiful space.

    November 2013
  • I can't wait to visit Tao and Roisin again. Not only was everything in their lovely house just as advertised, they made the stay exceptional. They were helpful, friendly, welcoming hosts who pointed us in the right direction numerous times. The house is quiet, comfortable, charming, and eclectically decorated in a very cool way. The yard was a like an oasis--totally relaxing, beautifully gardened--and an outdoor living room in every sense. The overall experience is terrific, and the location ideal--close to both Abbot Kinney and Rose. Walkable to the beach. I can't say enough about how wonderful a visit we had.

    October 2013
  • A brilliant place to stay. Great location, great people and great other guests. Parking is super easy and a hop skip and a jump from Abbot Kinney.... Need i say more?

    May 2013
  • Tao and Roisin's space is absolutely dreamy. working artists have created this vibe, and you can feel it. something that they can't advertise: the gorgeous sound of rainfall on their roof in the middle of the night. but any time of year, with any weather, you will love being here.

Hi! Ro is a researcher from N. Ireland and Tao is an Italian/American photographer and film-maker. We've both lived in several places (Ireland, England, NY, Italy, Spain) and love to travel. For us, the opportunity that Airbnb brings in meeting people from all over the world is fantastic and we love welcoming people to our home. We moved to our lovely home in Venice a couple of years ago and have had a great time remodeling and renovating it. Venice is wonderful, dynamic neighborhood with the best vibe, restaurants, shops, weather and sites in L.A. Please feel free to send us any questions. Thanks!
