The elegant master bedroom has a king bed, Belgian linen black-out curtains and a private balcony.
This remarkably designed, eco-friendly beach house is ideally located on a charming walk street in one of Venice Beach’s most sought after neighborhoods- a pedestrian paradise between the old-world canals and spectacular Venice Beach. It’s just steps from the sand, surf, restaurants, coffee shops and the world famous Venice Boardwalk. The high-end vacation retreat has the best Venice has to offer…without the hustle and bustle of the crowds.
Recently updated, the 2,000 square feet, three-story, three-bedroom condo feels like a sprawling single family home. The home has been designed and furnished with sophisticated yet laid-back Venice visitors in mind. An eco-friendly, modern design keeps the space feeling clean and fresh, while the finest textiles and materials keep it warm, cozy and classy. It’s a beach house in every sense- with flowing open spaces, indoor-outdoor living and a private roof-deck lounge with stunning 360-degree views.
Belgian linens, designer accents, and one-of-a-kind commissioned art are balanced by livable spaces, comfy rugs and throws, and family friendly amenities such as board games, surfboards and beach cruisers. This is a home suitable for the most sophisticated, chic traveler or the most demanding beach seeking family.
The light-bathed open concept living area includes a rustic wooden dining table for 4-8, oversized sofas and armchairs, a work desk for completing unfinished projects, and a chef’s kitchen outfitted with everything you need to prepare a gourmet feast.
If your vacation includes the need for technology, the home boasts high-speed wireless Internet throughout, flatscreen televisions with HDTV/DVD in every bedroom, and surround sound stereo.
Families, couples, artists, and award winning writers, actors, and musicians have vacationed here and fallen in love with the surroundings. While the property is family friendly, it is not "toddler friendly".
We look forward to welcoming you to Venice Beach House Retreat soon.

What can I say that the other reviewers haven't! My friends and I had a lovely long weekend at this beautiful house. We enjoyed the rooftop deck the most but the entire house was great- clean, nicely decorated, fresh flowers- we really did not want to leave!!
Lisa is friendly and accommodating - let us check in early, let us leave our bags while the house was cleaned for the next guests.
I'd highly recommend this property and wouldn't hesitate to return.
The house was a dream for my husband and myself and our two teenage kids. We had coffee in the morning on the rooftop deck. We made breakfast each day in the well-equiped kitchen. Took lazy naps on a pretty couch or nook. Our kids could be near us or take one of the house bikes off to the beach.
My husband and I are accommodation snobs and everything in this impeccably-appointed, breezy, house met with our approval: the crisp cotton sheets, the comfy down pillows, the sumptuous linens, the top-tier appliances, even the hand soap. And a MUST for me...everything in this house SMELLED LOVELY!
Our host, Lisa, was a true professional. This house is set up to be rented and does so in a way that even diehard Shutters on the Beach fans would appreciate. There is a useful guest book, instructions where needed, and if we had a question, Lisa was just an email away. The housekeeper, Ceci, was similarly available and friendly.
There were a mass of fresh flowers waiting for us in a vase on the table and white hydrangea on my bedside table. That should say it all.
The house and location are perfect for enjoying all that Venice Beach has to offer. Lisa's home is very comfortable and has everything you need to make your trip memorable, it was great to relax on the rooftop area.
The place was marvelous, just as the pictures would have you believe. The house is well equipped for practical every day use, and has all those little handy items like an electric kettle and can opener. The roof deck was phenomenal, and we made good use of the brand new BBQ. Hosts were attentive. Overall, the aesthetics and comforts are great and I'd be fortunate to get the opportunity to stay here again.
The house was gorgeous and the roof deck was perfect for a big group. It's in an ideal location, one block from the beach and close to an assortment of great restaurants. The hosts were great - very communicative and easy check-in and out. I would absolutely recommend this house and hope to be back again in the future.
Das Haus ist wundervoll und mit viel Liebe eingerichtet, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Lisa war jederzeit für uns erreichbar und sehr hilfsbereit und herzlich. Wir kommen gerne wieder!
Lisa, Cici and Demetri were very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. My 5 friends and I went to Venice to lay on the beach and soak up the LA sunshine. Lisa's apartment gave the beach a run for it's money. It is absolutely beautiful and well equipped. The roof top patio is an oasis of relaxation during the day, and a great hosting location by night. Apart from the great location (Literally 3/4 of a block from the beach) and decor, the attention to detail like having a mini fridge up on the rooftop patio, having the BBQ feed off the house gas, instead of worrying about propane bottles, having bikes that could be used to cycle the broad walk, surfboards so that I could embarrass myself to all the locals etc. were very much appreciated.
To sum it all up, it was a wonderful place to stay, and if I find myself looking for a spot in Venice beach in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to contact Lisa to stay here again.

I am an outgoing Australian who lives in the Venice Beach area with my two teenage children. I love the Venice laid back Californian lifestyle and the diverse and creative atmosphere, which is reflected in my homes. I enjoy travel, an active lifestyle, yoga, entertaining and meeting interesting people.
I have 15 years rental experience. One of my previous properties along the famous Great Ocean Road, Victoria was featured and listed in a travel TV show and rated as one of Australia’s top beach houses. I consider myself a ‘serial renovator’ and some of my homes in Australia were featured in Vogue and Belle Magazines and home & garden design books. I've studied horticulture and am a lover of the arts. I was previously an art consultant for a gallery for emerging artists in Melbourne, Australia.
Your stay in Venice will be a vibrant, welcoming and memorable experience!
