About this listing
We have a lovely artistic space with complete privacy. We are one block from the beach, one block from the Venice Canals, and next to Marina Del Rey. Lax is 20 mins away and Abbott Kinney is just around the corner a few blocks down. A private bathroom included. Cheers!
A beautiful 3 story townhouse on a busy street, with views of the ocean AND Hollywood sign (on a clear day). As our guests, you will enjoy the penthouse suite with bright beautiful windows on all sides with an attached roof-top deck. Although your private bath is downstairs off the first floor.
You may use all areas of our house, except our bedroom.
Interaction with Guests
We do work in the area at local restaurants so our hours are very unique, allowing us to be around more often than not to answer any questions you might have.
Everything is within walking distance. Washington Blvd. is a short 4 minute walk South and features the closest restaurants, bars and shops. The famed Venice Boardwalk is another short 5 minute walk North where you can see all the little vendors and street performers and much cheaper fare. Lastly, Abbot Kinney (the world's most fashionable street) is roughly a 15 minute walk, where more upscale shopping and dinning can be had.
Parking is only available on the street. Due to our location so near the beach it can get pretty crowded, especially during summer. Just watch for red curbs, the police hand out tickets very easily even if your car is just inches into the red curb.
Otherwise, taxis and ubers make it easy to get around town. And our local bus stop is just a 4 minute walk back to Washington Blvd. Although for very cheap, it can take you all over town!
If you use it, wash it. If you spill it, clean it.
This is your vacation but our home, please respect it.
No parties please.
Our neighbors appreciate quiet hallways.
Otherwise please enjoy our Venice Beach abode.

We felt very welcome arriving. Nicole showed us around and Loki was there too to make sure we had smiles on our faces.
Lovely spot close to the beach. Loved being within walking distance to all the places we wanted to visit.
Both Nicole and Dave were really welcoming, hospitable and lovely people. They made me feel at home instantly. The apartment is literally 100 m from Venice beach. Great location, great accommodation and great people
Nicole and David were great hosts - many thanks! I really enjoyed my stay and the room was at the top floor and was airy, spacious and comfy. Not to mention the 3 minute walk to the beach... For the price, location and hosts, highly recommended!
We had a great time at Nicole and David's place. The hosts were friendly and helpful, their dog Loki was adorable, and the upstairs bedroom we occupied was large and comfortable. The location was fantastic, right next to the beach and lots of cafés and restaurants. We had no trouble finding street parking during our two-night stay, although I wouldn't call it plentiful. Overall, a very pleasant stay!
About the Host, Nicole
My boyfriend David and I have been together 7 years. We met in Las Vegas while we lived there. Realizing the ocean is way cooler than the desert we moved to the coast and have been enjoying sunny California for over three years in the most amazing townhouse right by the water. Together, we've traveled to Australia, Bali, New Zealand, Fiji, Peru, Chile, and Argentina, Costa Rica, Mexico and Nepal. Pretty much every country is on our travel wish list. When we travel we enjoy really staying at unique places that allow you to immerse yourself in the community. In turn, we love showing our now home of Venice Beach to any and all people unfamiliar.
We both work in hospitality at local restaurants. I am a bartender and David is a server. One last bonus, David is an artist by passion and you will find his color adorning our walls as well as the probability of getting the opportunity of watching a painting in the making.
You should also know there is Loki. He is our 9 pound Yorki that loves attention and guests. He is hypo-allergenic and a great character to boot. He is our official "welcoming committee" and we have yet to meet someone that didn't like him.
We both are active in the community and have great advice on where to go and what to do in Venice and surrounding areas.
