Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Confortable, nice and well-located place; as described on the property page!

    There is everything you need on-site: confortable beds, fridge, freezer, a patio with a big wooden table and a pit fire, plenty of bath towels, solid wireless signal (Internet), a DVD/Blu-Ray player with a couple good movies :) Venice Beach is within walking distance (10 minutes or so) and there is enough free street parking around.

    I had a couple questions during my stay and the hosts turned out to be easily reachable, via airbnb private messages or phone.

    While being a minor problem, I'd like to mention that the fridge can be loud at times, which is especially noticeable at night.

    All in all, this place is definitely recommended!

  • Host was available and responsive. We had a problem with the refrigerator upon arrival and they sent a repairman immediately. The property is as advertised and as Venice properties go was quite spacious and nice.

  • Nice little house in a good location. A couple of irritations; the kitchen sink tap needs replacing - it's worn out and also the sink in the bathroom basin does not drain properly. And beware the fire alarm - it's oversensitive and unstoppable. Otherwise we enjoyed ourselves in the house and the yard - a nice feature.

    Response from Anastasia:

    Thanks for feedback. It makes us better hosts and a better experience for our future guests. The kitchen tap was less than 1 year old however we replaced it as it was not functioning property. The bathroom basin was not draining properly due to the an item placed in the sink.
    Smoke alarms mandatory are installed for the guests safety.

  • My stay at the 5th Ave Venice Retreat was overall fantastic. The house was decently equipped with most amenities, the beds were super comfortable. I loved the open floor plan of the place along with its wrap around patio area with fire-pit(super cool). I walked to the beach everyday; thats how close it was. Anastasia, although we never met ,was very helpful in securing a vacation rental. I had to make some itinerary changes and she facilitated this 100%. She is obviously a seasoned veteran at this and it shows in her professionalism. I had to fill out additional paperwork for the actual rental company and this was a surprise at the time. It was not at all as stressful or confusing as I expected. Once again Anastasia was very helpful with this process as well. Thanks Anastasia. I fully reccommend renting from Anastasia to anyone heading to L.A for Vacation.

  • My classmates and I stayed at the 5th Ave Retreat and it was perfect for studying as well as enjoying Venice and Santa Monica. We found the house clean, quiet, and comfortable. The kitchen was great (big dining table and full sized refrigerator) as were the 3 bedrooms (beds with more than enough pillows and extra soft sheets!).
    We would definitely stay at the house again.
