About This Listing
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.
**Our home was selected to be included in the 2013 Venice Home & Garden Tour, showcasing Venice's best!
Loved the neighborhood, always give access to some hip coffee shops, stores, galleries as well as the Venice Beach scene if you like that.
The home is a small oasis in the hipness of Abbott Kinney and an intimate experience for guests who are California dreaming. Downsize, simplify, share, in a cool home for a week away from life.
This is one of the best Airbnb's that we've stayed in. The location is perfect for exploring Venice, the outdoor space is great for hanging out, and the decor is fun and cozy.
One thing to note is that the space is smaller than the pictures make it seem.
The house is as lovely as the pictures. It is stylish , comfortable and well equipped. It was clean, tidy and has everything you need. The outdoor space is very prettily planted - even though the weather was unusually not very LA, so not warm enough to use ! The street is very peaceful and the ability to walk to some great shops, cafes and restuarants in a few minutes is a real bonus. Cayley is a brilliant host. She answered any questions very quickly before and during the stay and although we didn't meet in person, I am sure that had we needed anything she would have been there immediately. Would highly recommend if you like staying in a gorgeous house and being walking distance from some fab places to eat!
We had a wonderful stay! Cayley is the perfect host. The cottage is in a great location, comfortable, clean, cute and has a nice garden. Thank you Cayley!
Wir hatten unglaublich schöne 2 Wochen in Haus von Cayley. Das Haus ist super, wie auf den Bildern.
Wie waren mit unseren 2 Kinder (7 + 3). Das Haus ist perfekt gelegen... Laufdistanz zum Strand und in der Nähe hat es viele Spielplätze, Fahradwege und die Abbot Kinney (die Einkausstrasse) ist gleich um Eck.
Wir kommen bestimmt wieder.
Wir werden Venice und Cayleys Haus sehr vermissen.
