A few reviews from our amazing Airbnb guests... "Fabulous! Perfect location and divine getaway, with beautiful tropical garden, hot tub, and outdoor gas grill. The Captain's Quarter's was ideal for a family and friends' group"
"Six of us stayed in the Captains Bungalow for Memorial Day Weekend and it was absolutely the perfect place to stay.
"We loved our little bungalow getaway at the beach. The location is perfect for walking to the beach, pier, restaurants, and the canals..."
"The house itself is wonderful. My family of five never felt cramped or crowded. The Captains' themed decor only adds to the fun. The hot tub is a wonderful amenity after a long day of traveling."
Tucked away in a lush garden property, a one-minute walk from the beach, is this secluded complex of 4 bungalows built in the 1920's. This particular home, fondly referred to as 'The Captain's Quarter's' due to it's Sailing Theme, has 2 bedrooms (2 bunks and a single in one bedroom and a king in the other), dining area with seating for 6, a 52" flat screen in the living room with large & comfy sofa, full kitchen, private patio overlooking the hot tub and garden, and reserved parking for smaller vehicles. The property has a shared washer & dryer, fire pit, BBQ, surf shower and a hot tub as well as tables and chairs throughout the gardens.
You can walk to the pier in two minutes; there is great surf north & south side, as well as a few other rad breaks up & down the beach. If you aren't a surfer, there is still waves to romp in, lots of dolphins and sea life to watch, sun-rays to catch and great views off the pier in all directions. Coming back to the bungalows, rinsing off in the outdoor surf shower in the garden, and hopping into the toasty hot tub under the canopy of leaves is just fantastic!
Or you can walk east, away from the beach, for 30 seconds, and you are at the south edge of the Venice Canals Historical District. Lots of beautiful homes, birds, bridges and boats are all around you as you stroll through this famous area.
The Bungalows are located less that a block from Washington Boulevard, where you will find shops, restaurants, local markets, bars and rentals of all kinds... surfboards, bikes, paragliding and more. There is no shortage of fun activities in Venice Beach, that's for sure!
All the pictures posted here are spots within walking distance. The central location of these bungalows is unsurpassed, and the property is gated for privacy and safety. We gladly welcome pets and the dense garden and hot tub has always been a magical play-area for kids.
Although the bungalows are on the brink of becoming a centenarian structure, they offer today's conveniences such as all the premium cable channels on flat screens, and of course, wifi. We have always keep the bungalows stocked with a 'starter-kit' of paper goods and kitchen items such as coffee & seasonings plus towels for bath & beach, and fresh, fluffy pillows with cozy bedding on comfy beds :)
Please make sure you have a laptop or smartphone so that you may access your reservation upon arrival with such vital information as... how to check in, wifi network and passcode, entrance to the home, check-out time and responsibilities, and so much more :) If you do not have a laptop or smartphone, please print out your itinerary before arrival, or ask me in advance to print one for you and leave it in the home… happy to do that, but in an attempt to be as environmentally friendly as possible, I will not supply your printed itinerary unless requested at the time of booking... we love trees!!
We loved the Captains Quarters!
If you're looking for a "true" Venice experience, this is the place!
Early morning surf and fresh coffee at Cow's End, the best!
Super comfy beds and Vanessa was totally accommodating, no worries at all. Thanks for the memories from freezing cold Canada!
Vanessa was great and always helpful and available. The place is in a great spot, and has some old school charm and personality. The captain's unit isn't the newest, but that is to be expected and everything lived up to expectations. I had a great stay and Vanessa was fantastic.
Very clean, we had all what we need!
The app. looks very nice and vanessa is very uncomplicaded and friendly!
Thanks for all!
This spot was great for us! We walked to almost every meal, rode bikes to Santa Monica pier and took our little ones to Disney land which only ended up being 40 min away! So great location for us!
Beds were comfortable, having a hot tub was cool for us and the nice big seating was great for us too we watched a few movies and just got to hang out after some long fun days. We would stay there with Vanessa again for sure!
The captains quarters provided exactly what we were looking for. Great location in Venice just a few blocks from the beach. House was clean, linens and towels. The quarters fit 5 easily, and the hot tub was great way to relax after a day out in Venice beach. Would recommend and certainly stay again!
