My stay at Ro and Tao's was excellent!! Upon arrival I was greeted by their friend and caretaker Danny. He made me feel at home as soon as I arrived. The camper itself was awesome. Clean, inviting, and comfy, just as pictured. The bed is amazing. The entire property is super cool, and the location was perfect. It’s a short walk to the beach, great restaurants and coffee shops, Abbot Kinney, it’s all right there! My only regret is that I couldn’t have stayed longer. Oh, and there is a bunny!! Thank you, and I hope to be back this winter!
Ro and Tao's property was really peaceful and beautiful. I frickin loved living in the camper. Was my first time and honestly that's the only way to live if your near Venice Beach. Great people, great neighborhood and highly reccomended.
Great setting! The trailer is cozy, clean, comfortable. Fun place to stay. Plenty of easy street parking (just watch for street-cleaning days), easy to find and access, great wifi, quiet.
Shared bathroom is atypical for "entire home" type listings, but it did not detract at all from the experience.
My whole experience at Ro and Tao's place was very enjoyable; they were very welcoming and friendly, the trailer was quite comfortable, and the backyard space was rather beautiful. The open-air bathroom was also very nice.
Given the location and my experience there, I can only highly recommend staying here!
Tao and Ro were very friendly and welcoming. Their place was really charming and full of character. I only wish I could have stayed longer and have had the opportunity to chat with them more. It was close to everything including Abbot Kinney for shopping, dining and people watching as well as Venice beach for the same. I took their advice and had a Cortado at GTA and I wasn't disappointed. I hope to stay there again one day soon!
The place is really beautiful, looks and feels bohemian. There are a few trailers in a garden and some vintage furniture everywhere. The trailer itself is very simple and convenient for one traveller, nothing fancy really. The neighborhood is perfect to discover Venice (10 min walk from the beach). The hosts were nice even though I didn't really get the chance to know them. A bit disappointed on the lack of response from their side before I arrived.

About the Host, Ro And Tao
Hi! Ro is a writer from N. Ireland and Tao is an Italian/American photographer and film-maker. We've both lived in several places (Ireland, England, NY, Italy, Spain) and love to travel. For us, the opportunity that Airbnb brings in meeting people from all over the world is fantastic and we love welcoming people to our home.
We moved to our lovely home in Venice a couple of years ago and have had a great time remodeling and renovating it. Venice is wonderful, dynamic neighborhood with the best vibe, restaurants, shops, weather and sites in L.A.
Please feel free to send us any questions. Thanks!
