Lillian is a warm and welcoming host who has a cozy hideaway behind her residence on a "walk street" in Venice. The guesthouse was furnished with a Murphy queen bed, a large bath, TV, and enough amenities to make our stay comfortable. She provided a folder with local restaurants and attractions. It was a 10-15 minute walk to Abbott Kinney Blvd with lots of choices for shops, cafes, and restaurants. Her suggestion for Cafe 50s for an inexpensive breakfast was perfect and the food was surprisingly good. Venice Beach is within walking distance, but we opted to take our car. Very enjoyable! Thanks, Lillian!
Lillian was clear with communication and made my arrival stress free.The guesthouse had everything I needed for my short stay and was nice and peaceful. The walk to Abbot Kinney was beautiful and is a hidden treasure. Thanks Lilly for being so warm and friendly :)
Lillian, the host was very gracious. She gave us some good pointers of places to eat in Venice Beach. Though she was not there when we originally check you did see her two other occasions. It was nice that we were able to chat. The actual menus and brochures inside the apartment or rather dated. As such they were of somewhat marginal value. The apartment itself is rather small, but sufficient. The utensils and things in the bathroom were a menagerie of things that others had left behind. that was fine and quite good. There was no cleaning fee with a two day stay which I thought was great. One should be very mindful of the parking on the street. There are certain restr that was fine and quite good. There was no cleaning fee with a two day stay which I thought was great. One should be very mindful of the parking on the street. There are certain restrictions with street cleaning in the morning hours. Be careful. They do ticket.
I can really recommend Lilli's Guest House! This clean place is located in a very cool neighbourhood and is just a short walk away from the famous venice beach. I would be glad, if I can stay there again during my next california trip!
Lillian was a wonderful host! We contacted her last minute when another rental didn't work out and she had the guest house ready later that same day. She introduced herself to us and made sure we had everything we needed when we arrived. The space was small, but clean and cozy and felt very comfortable. If you are looking to explore Venice the location couldn't be better. It is within walking distance of Abbot Kinney and the beach.
Great price, sweet place!
