A dream apartment on a quiet walk street. Literally steps from the sand and a short walk to shops and Venice Boardwalk. Shaded by a giant tree, This stand alone top floor apartment of a quiet triplex, has a huge private deck with Barbecue, Table, chairs and fire pit. Glass sliding doors give the apartment an indoor outdoor feel. Inside this plush apartment you will find high ceilings, working fireplace, big screen TV, Direct TV, A/C, Washer/Dryer, modern appliances and Queen bed with Tempurpedic mattress. Also you will find a fully furnished guest sleeping loft.
This is a quiet residential neighborhood, the beach is right outside the door. Go for a stroll in the morning or meet up with the neighbors and watch the sunset. Walk just a few blocks and you are on Washington Blvd where there are a bunch of bars, restaurants, coffee shops and surf shops. if you are active put your running shoes on and you are right on the best running path in the country, make a right and go north along the boardwalk or bike path. Leave your car parked, and live like a local. Use my skateboard or bike.
Words can't describe how one of a kind and special you will never want to leave. I don't.
beautiful place, and incredibly convenient to access the beach. ej was very easy to work with and key exchange was a breeze.
Ej's spot in Venice was fantastic! True to the pictures, the flat was perfectly located a block from the beach and provided us with a real escape from the world to recharge our batteries.
Ej went above and beyond on the trip coordination and made getting into and out of the flat effortless.
I highly recommend this flat and look forward to staying again in the future.
Had an amazing time here. The apartment is beautiful and the location couldn't be better. It's on a serene street but just a couple blocks away from the beach and a lot of great restaurants.
EJ's treehouse was the perfect home base for our stay in Venice Beach. The location is ideal - mere seconds to the beach and close enough to walk to all the Venice Beach boardwalk action. It was also very peaceful and quiet at night. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed and made our stay there very comfortable and relaxing. EJ was a great host, very responsive and easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend EJ's place for anyone traveling to Venice Beach and hope to stay there again one day!
Ej's place in Marina Del Ray is absolutely fantastic. Location is close enough to walk to the chaos of Venice beach and far enough to still be a tranquil oasis. Ej was an excellent host and made us feel very welcome. The house is delightfully unique and the attention to detail is impressive. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone looking for a perfect beach vacation.
We just loved Eben's treehouse and would highly recommend a stay here. Our only hope is that it will be available for our next visit to Venice Beach.
Eben is a great host and although we never got to meet him, his communication was great and his response time was speedy.
We spent 2 nights here but would have liked to spend a lot longer. We borrowed Eben's bikes and cycled to Santa Monica Pier, sun baked on the beach just meters from the apartment and visited some of the great eating and drinking places Eben recommended (all within a 5 minute drive or 20-30 minute walk - we opted to join the locals and skateboard).
The location is perfect, close to the busy promenade, local shopping, dining and drinking, and just far enough away for it to be lovely and quiet for morning breakfasts on the deck.
Eben's description is right, we didn't want to leave.
There is no other word but "perfect" to describe Ej's place in Paradise.
Even though he was away on trip Ej made sure we had all the info we needed to enjoy the treehouse and the environment. Venice sand Beach fifteen second away. Located on the Washington Bd side of the area, the surroundings are calm. A large terrace equipped with anything needed to laze in the shade. BBQs night and day ! A perfect King size bed plus a large bedding on the mezzanine. Fully equipped (website hidden). Busy Boardwalk, ten minutes walk away. Shops and parking. Wow. Perfect Internet connection. Apple TV and Netflix for the TV crazies (our two girls appreciated) Birds in the trees and light breeze at dusk. We hope Ej will accomodate us again in the future. Living in France we dreamt of a Venice beach experience. We had it. We were just like real Venitians for a while. Ej's place is full of his books and movies and it feels like we were friends in his house, watering the plants :-)
Highly recommanded! FIVE STARS!
My boyfriend and I stayed here for the long weekend and Eben was an amazing host. He provided plenty of amenities and gave us tips on places to go and things to see in the area. We walked to the Venice Boardwalk as well as Abbott Kinney from here and it was a lot of fun.
The treehouse is also a few steps away from the beach. We played a little volleyball and spent the day on the beach. The place is enclosed with trees and at night it is peacefully quiet. We didn't hear any of the neighbors so it felt like we were completely alone. We barbecued on the patio for dinner as well as roasted s'mores in the firepit and it was perfect.
I live in LA and would highly, highly recommend this place to anyone - even locals as this was an awesome staycation and excuse to be so close to the beach!
Would highly recommend Ebens place.
Super comfortable with a great outdoor space and in one of the best neighborhoods on the Westside. Eben was really easy to deal with, thought of everything, was prompt with responses and even leaves you a little printed out personal guide to the area with his recs.
As far as location, very beachy feel with some great walk streets and architecture in the neighborhood. Less than a block from the beach and only a couple minutes walk to Washington Blvd shops and restaurants. Right by the start of the beach bike path that takes you 8.5 miles along the coast. Super easy to access all that Venice, Santa Monica, Malibu and Manhattan beach have to offer. For the surfers, his house is right in front of the Venice Pier break, and close to many of the best breaks in Socal. Short drive or bike ride to Abbott Kinney.
Was actually out on a trip from the East coast looking for an apartment and liked his hood so much found a place a few blocks away, Will definitely have my friends and family stay again when they visit.
My girlfriend and I had a very enjoyable stay at this apartment. The unit was clean upon arrival and the bathroom contained soaps, toothpaste, towels, and all other standard toiletries. The bed was comfortable and had clean sheets. Laundry machine in the unit was convenient.
The apt is on a quiet street and as described is one block from the beach and walking distance to the Venice Beach boardwalk, 5 min drive to Abbot Kinney, 10 min drive to Santa Monica and $20 cab fare to LAX.
I would definitely recommend staying here.
