The location provides easy access to all the benefits of Venice but in a quiet neighborhood community.
We are only half a block to the famous Venice Walking Streets, which you can use to stroll directly to Abbot Kinney or the beach.
The section of Lincoln Blvd. directly at the end of our street is undergoing a rapid transformation and has been terms "The Linc" by locals. There you will find a growing list of eateries, clubs and cafes.
There is an abundance of delicious and healthy eateries of all types and price points within walking and/or driving distance. We are happy to recommend and share information on questions or concerns you have during your stay.
Utilizing a route through the best neighborhoods of Venice, you can ride a bike to the beach in 10 minutes or walk in about 20 minutes, depending on your pace.
The space is self-contained and offers everything you need to make the most of your visit to Venice Beach and/or Los Angeles. The spacious room has private access and includes a queen size bed, a lounge area with sofa, a kitchenette and private bathroom. The room opens up to a full patio where you can enjoy the fresh air of the Venice mornings, the bright afternoon sun, or the cool evenings an outdoor heater.

Azza and I are your hosts. We are both transplants who were lured to Southern California by the coastal air, eclectic arts and restaurants, and the feeling of community. Chris enjoys roasting his own coffee and surfing, while Azza is an avid reader and writer, and amateur photographer. We have both traveled extensively through Asia, the Middle East, South America and Europe and constantly long for our next adventure. When in LA or Joshua Tree, our favorite activities together are gardening, browsing at the local flea markets and enjoying the local food culture. Both our Venice Garden Retreat, and our Wunderlust Cabin are our own homes and are shared with our guests with love and care.
As hosts we aim to provide our guests the space they need to feel comfortable, while being available to share as much information as we can in order to help them make the most of their visit. Whether you are new to Venice or Joshua Tree, and here to explore, or a regular visitor who needs a nice clean place to call home during your visit, we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
