About this listing
The Artisan beach bungalow is a studio style house, just 2-minutes walk to the beach and Venice Pier in a GREAT neighborhood. It has a private patio, full kitchen and bathroom, living room, premium cable channels, wifi, parking + a beautiful garden courtyard with HOT TUB, BBQ, free laundry, hammock, and more.
Tucked away in this lush garden property,a 2-minute walk to the beach (just one block from the waves!) and a 30-second walk to the Historical Venice Canals, is a secluded complex of 4 bungalows built in the 1920's. This particular bungalow, fondly referred to as 'The Artisan', is a junior-one bedroom with it's own private gated patio. The Artisan Bungalow offers a queen bed in the bedroom as well as a pull-out sofa in the living room, full kitchen, full bath, and gated courtyard.
The Artisan Bungalow proudly displays many pieces of artwork created by local artisans including paintings & prints as well as photos, sculptures and crafts. The majority of these artists sell their creations on the world-famous Venice Beach Ocean Front Walk, so you can admire a piece on your stay, but also meet the craftsman in person when exploring Venice's Oceanfront Walk!
The home offers both a dining and a lounge area on a private patio (complete with hammock!), in the living room a 52" flat screen with all premium cable channels, secured wifi, also a sofa-bed & desk in the living room, queen bed in the bedroom, and a fully-equipped kitchen with stove/oven, large fridge & microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and more, as well as a full bath with shower and tub. These bungalows are situated in a 100 Year-Old Garden, one of the oldest in all of Venice, and this particular house has the private patio flanked by cypress and palms... truly a paradise! Unit is 455 sq. feet.
Outside of your own private patio is a large shared courtyard with many amenities such as the hot tub & dryer, fire pit, BBQ, surf shower and free laundry facilities, as well as relaxing tables and chairs throughout the gardens. You will have a free reserved parking space.
Interaction with guests
We live close by and can be on hand if needed, but generally our correspondence is only through email, texts, and sometimes phone calls when necessary. Let yourself in with the key code/lockbox instructions we provide; come and go at your own convenience. For guests that would like more interaction, we are more than happy to stop by, introduce ourselves, and answer questions about the space or the area when we are available, but in our experience most guests prefer to just have their own space.
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 beginning 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!
Other things to note
