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 shared with our 5 bungalows that has a HOT TUB, BBQ, free laundry, hammock, and more.

The space

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 home offers both a dining and a lounge area on a small 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 space shared between our 5 small bungalows. It's one of the oldest in all of Venice, and this particular house has the private patio area flanked by cypress and palms... truly a paradise! Unit is 455 sq. feet.

*Please note our house rules section for rules related to courtyard, parking, and bungalow use.*

Guest access

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. The courtyard has a 10pm nightly curfew on hot tub/amenities use, so that we may keep the peace and quiet for all of our guests and neighbors.

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.

Other things to note

We keep the bungalows stocked with a 'starter-kit' (first-day supply) 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 :)

- Pets are welcome! We charge a one-time $50 pet fee for additional cleaning.

- We have cruiser bikes available for rent, $15/day. Reserve ahead of time.

- Please allow at least 24 hours for repair requests to be fulfilled. We will do our best to accommodate any repairs or special requests within 24 hours of receipt of the request. Please note that sometimes weekends or holidays it may take longer.

After walking to Venice Boardwalk once, we realized how perfect our little corner of Pacific and Washington was all we needed for our family vacation. It was safe but diverse and everything we needed was a quick walk. We parked our car upon arrival and never got back in until the day we left.

Abigail's place was absolutely adorable. From the moment you walk through the gate your immediately transported into a magical lush courtyard. I felt like I was in Central America. The apt was incredibly charming with that Venice vintage vibe that I love so much. Abigail was very accommodating and very easy to communicate with! Walking distance to the beach shops and restaurants... If you want to make a small stretch of a walk there's a delicious organic modern Mexican place called Tocaya. It's well worth the 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive. Also, if your a Chinese food lover there's Maos that's not too much further. They have amazing vegetarian options. Anyway! Highly recommended! Thanks Abigail!

Abagail's place is great! Super close to the beach & an easy walk or quick uber to all the sights of Venice. The bungalow compound feels removed from the bustle of Pacific despite it being a busy street.

Great location for walking to the beach and close to all kinds of good food! Not far from all the best Venice Beach area attractions, and just a short distance from Santa Monica. The bungalow had a great, beach vibe that made us feel at home in California. The courtyard, hot tub, and private patio were great additions! Would highly recommend this place, and plan to stay there again!
