"Absolutely in the heart of Venice. One short block to the beach and around the corner from the Canals. Fun comfortable bungalow with everything needed for a beach weekend. Soaking in the hot tub!!
THE ARTIST'S BUNGALOW
Tucked away in this lush garden property, a one-minute walk to the beach 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 a queen bed in the bedroom as well as a pull-out sofa in the living room, full kitchen, full bath, private patio & gated courtyard. The Artist's 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 beach walk!
The home offers a dining and lounge area on a private deck, a 52" flat screen with all premium cable channels, secured wifi, a living room with sofa-bed & desk, queen bed in the bedroom, and a fully-equipped kitchen with stove/oven, large fridge & microwave as well as a full bath with shower in tub. These bungalows are situated in a 100 Year-Old Garden, one of the oldest in all of Venice, and this particular house is flanked by cypress and palms. Outside of your own private patio is a shared courtyard with washer & dryer, fire pit, BBQ, surf shower and a hot tub as well as relaxing 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 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!
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 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 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 really like trees :)
We'd love for you to come and enjoy these unique, nearly 100-year old beach bungalows. This is truly a one-of-a-kind vacation rental in the PERFECT location!
Please email me with any questions at all, I'm always happy to chat and meet new friends :)

Vanessa has been amazingly available (even at 2:30 am!) and very swift to solve small, unforeseen issues.
The place is perfectly located, 1 minute away from the Venice pier. The look and feel is 150% Venice!!
Location, location, location...
Close to the beach, whirlpool in the garden, enjoying LA is made easy at the Artists Bungalow. Thx to Vanessa for the opportunity to stay at this nice place.
Vanessa's accommodation was wonderful and Vanessa couldn't have even a better host. Both the main bed and pullout couch bed are very comfortable. The decor is beachy and cool. It was great to have our own private porch area, with a lock, since we travelled with a young child. The courtyard is awesome, with a big barbecue and a fire pit. The private parking is easily accessible. Last but not least, it's 2 minutes walk to the beach at Marina Del Rey! We'd definitely come back. Thanks Vanessa!
Super cozy and better than I pictured! There are tons of things to do nearby, including the beach, which is perfect. A parking space is included, which was super helpful. Vanessa was very pleasant and easy to reach - I would definitely stay here again!
The bungalow was great. I had never visited SoCal before, but staying there seemed to be the best way to experience the area. It was like borrowing a friend's place for the weekend. Vanessa was very professional as was the entire setup.
I love this place! It's the second time I've stayed here within a couple of months. You cannot beat the location and the place is adorable with a laid back 70's California beach vibe. The pullout sofa bed is actually quite comfortable and there's a curtain which can be closed to seperate the bedroom and living room area. I hope to come back here this summer!
We had an awesome 3 days at the Artists Bungalow. Vanessa was an amazing host from the first point of contact right through to the finish line - really easy to work with : ) The Bungalow is really comfy and cosy, and is well located close to loads of restaurants, bars and the beach! Easy to get there from the airport - just two short bus trips for $1. My friends and I hadn't caught up together for over a year and this little pad was the perfect rendez-vous point for us. Thanks Vanessa! Em & co.
The place is cutely furnished and in a great location. The courtyard is also lovely. The bungalow itself is a little rundown, but it's clean. We had a shaky checkin experience- the garages were under construction so we had to find street parking which was rough and there were construction noises during the day. Also the entrance had been vandalized so we ended up having to go the back way which was just kind of a pain on the first night since it was late and dark and just nerve-racking knowing that someone had already tried to break in. Vanessa for her part handled everything really well - she tried to give us a heads up and explain where we needed to go, but just was a shaky experience. The stay was comfortable after that. We enjoyed the hottub!
Vanessa is an excellent host. She answered every question in advance in a timely manner, gave clear directions and went beyond expectations to make extra sure I was comfortable. The bungalow is great and perfectly located. I would love to stay here again.
