Die Beschreibung der Unterkunft war präzis, die Wohnung entsprach genau den Angaben. Der kleine Makel, dass die Wohnung beim Eintreffen noch nicht gereinigt war, wurde umstandslos und in kürzester Zeit zu unserer grössten Zufriedenheit erledigt. Die kurze Wartezeit konnten wir problemlos am nahen Strand überbrücken. Das Haus ist ruhig gelegen, Einkaufs- und Essensmöglichkeiten sind in Gehdistanz. Der Strand in 5 Minuten erreichbar, der Flughafen LAX in 20 Minuten. Insgesamt eine grossartige Möglichkeit, ein paar erholsame und ruhige Tage in Los Angeles verbringen zu können. Die Kommunikation mit unserer Gastgeberin per SMS war schnell und unkompliziert und sehr freundlich.
We had a wonderful time at the beach house everything was cozy and clean, just wish I had more time . Perfect location to walk to the beach, restaurant or bars . Will be back to stay longer.
We stayed at this property for 4 nights and it met our needs perfectly. Location wise, it is about a 1 minute walk to the beach, officially on Venice Beach but also not too far to Santa Monica beach. The property has two bikes and we used these to cycle up to Santa Monica pier, with a mass of cyclist, runners and skateboarders while watching people playing beach volleyball or just chilling. Really good fun.
The property is well located for LAX airport and also for visiting places such and Universal Studios, Beverley Hills and Hollywood, all taking us about 30-45 minute by car. The property has a handy parking space at the rear.
Inside, there is one good sized double bedroom. The large living area is made up of a dining area, living room, and large alcove at the front with a large single bed and another single bed underneath which pulls out. This alcove can be screened off from the living room for privacy but doesn't offer any sound protection. However, these two beds were perfect for our children (13 and 9). The morning light pours into the alcove so if your sleep is affected by light then best to have an eye mask handy (we always take them travelling).
The furniture and upkeep are good, plus there are many utensils in the well-equipped kitchen. The interior feels homely and comfortable - perfect to relax in after a day out.
Correspondence with the property owners was excellent before and during our stay. They were always quick to respond. And when we had a minor issue with the bathroom sink, the owners' response and resolution was perfect.
So in summary, and based on our experience, I can highly rate this property. We were genuinely sad to have to leave after 4 days and would stay here again when visiting LA.
This place is just amazing, the location is 2 mn walk from the beach and the house is very practical and very well decorated.
We had a very pleasant stay in Venice thanks to Tiffany & Janice
We had a fabulous stay at Venice beach. The bungalow was as described and very clean. The location even better than we'd hoped. The welcome pack had all the information we needed. The bedding sheets were crisp and the towels fluffy. We throughly enjoyed the bikes and boogie board available. Our children aged 10 and 11 were very comfortable sleeping in the sun porch. We would love to visit again.
Great place, good location in Venice. So close to the beach yet just far away enough to be peaceful and quiet.
We enjoyed sitting on the outside porch having breakfast so the garden part of the house was a big plus.
Never actually met our hosts but all arrangements worked exactly as described, check-in etc was easy.
Place was fantastic !!
We had a marvelous time in Venice.
Place is quite although it is just 50 mètres from the Beach.

About the Host, Tiffany & Janin
I am from Venice, California. I am in real estate although I have worked in education also. I like reading, swimming (ocean), traveling, gardening, bike riding, dancing, Yoga. I am not a big party person - although I did go to Burning Man last year. That was quite an adventure!. I recommend it highly. Just drink lots of water and be prepared for the dust!
I have two children, one is a software engineer in San Francisco and the other is in art school. I have a cat and my brother's dog occasionally visits - with or with out the brother.
A few years ago I took my kids to NY and we found a cool East Village apartment on Craig's list but Craig's list can be a little dicey so I thought I tried Airbnb this last trip. I had such a great experience with Airbnb in New York that I decided to list an apartment I have in Venice when I came back. My sister in law, Tiffany, lives in the same building and we are working on this project together.
I was going to list books I like but that would be a really long list... How about favorite movie? Chinatown
Travel - love Venice, Italy, and Paris of course, and Mexico. And Museum Island in Berlin. And tropical beaches, well, any mountain or beach, actually. And Horses.
Tiffany is a hard working mom by day, and a knitter by night. I love going the extra mile to put a smile on our guest' faces. I am a 6 or 7th generation born in SoCal, on my Mom's side.
I have 2 dogs, that I love to death! I am a homebody! I love baking and trying new gluten free foods! I am 100% obsessed with all things Pretty Little Liars! The only time its hard to get in touch with me is when Pll is on TV!
My family comes first always! I am so happy being a mother to one amazing little girl, and I try to be the best wife I can! Having a close connection with family is really important to me!
I went to a Waldorf school, so I like to think I can think out of the box, and I try to be as creative as I can be.
I would love to go back to Greece and Germany. A dream vacation would be Fiji.
We are friendly, flexible, knowledgeable and will try to answer any questions you have about Venice and the surrounding areas whether or not you book with us.
