This charming architect-owned and fully re-modelled craftsman cottage is located on Electric Ave within the most desirable pocket of Venice Beach. Steps to Abbot Kinney, a short walk or bike ride to the Rose restaurants and just 4 blocks to the beach, there is honestly no better place to experience Venice. The house sits in a beautiful lush tropical garden with mango, cherimoya, cherry and guava trees -- there is an stone outdoor firepit and amazing deck under the umbrella of a huge date palm tree that is exceptional for entertaining or use as your own outdoor living space. What's more, the house has two parking spaces secured by an electronic gate - something that you will find very valuable on weekends, in the summer, and especially on First Fridays when parking is in high demand in the area.
The house features two bedrooms, a two-sided gas fireplace, sky-lighted kitchen, a very large bathroom accessible to both bedrooms, two televisions with Direct TV, a full sized brand new washer & dryer, wireless internet and a large extremely comfortable sofa that could sleep an additional 5th guest. We also are able to offer a Graco Pack 'n' Play baby basinet for parents traveling with babies & toddlers. FInally, there are two beach cruisers available to our guests to ride around town and cruise the boardwalk on!
When you stay at Electric Ave we'll leave you with a full list and map of all the insider's tips - best restaurants to eat at, where to go for a drink, where to shop, bike rentals, bike routes, local grocery stores, and so much more. We also live only 5 minutes away so we are easily available and accessible should any issues arise or to help make your stay more comfortable.
We hope you'll enjoy our home as much as we do! It's a very special place.

Such a great stay at this lovely home. Truly an oasis in the heart of Venice!
This cottage is in the perfect spot! Just ad advertised - very comfortable and we did not want to leave!! We hope to come back someday. Cayley had everything set-up and was very easy to communicate with.
Wonderful place to call home for any length of stay. Definitely recommend for the perfect getaway.
Outstanding property and will definitely stay there again when I'm in Venice next.
We had a fabulous time in this gorgeous house in Venice! The house is beautifully appointed, comfortable and a perfect base to explore LA. The garden is beautifully landscaped and is a real pleasure to sit in and enjoy your morning coffee or fresh baked muffins from the bakery around the corner. On chilly evenings the gas fireplace is a wonderful and beautiful way to warm up the house. The hosts clearly have great taste and made us feel extremely welcome. We will be back!!!
