Come soak up the sun in this cozy Venice Beach Canal getaway. It's located just across the road from the beach and famous boardwalk full of artists, performers. the new Skate Park, muscle beach, the ocean and the best sunsets.
Staying on the canal is priceless! We provide a little boat for you to row around the canal with and it's very romantic at sunset. :) This comfy holiday rental is in the perfect location for an authentic Venice Beach experience!
This 1 bedroom/1 bathroom apartment sleeps 5 comfortably on a pull out sofa and futon in the living room. We also have a private remote entry garage for your cars safety. The kitchen is fully stocked for all your cooking needs. The bedroom has a queen sized bed with clean fresh sheets. The room also has a huge chalk board wall for your artistic enjoyment! :) The bathroom has a shower and bathtub. We provide clean towels and shampoo and conditioner incase you forget yours at home.
This place is all about location! You can leave the car in the garage and walk to just about anywhere in Venice and Santa Monica. There is even a bus stop just up the street if you want to give your feet a rest.
WE ARE FAMILY FRIENDLY!!!!!!! I can provide a pack n play portable crib, stroller and basket of toys upon request. We also provide babysitting services if you'd like a night out alone.
No smoking. Please be respectful and treat our house as you would yours. Be mindful of the neighbors. Try not to park in front of the garage for long as it blocks the neighbors garage. Please leave the sand at the beach. We ask to wipe yourself down and empty your shoes outside before entering the house.
This little beach pad was a perfect place for a quick get away with my husband. It is all about the location when you're in la. It's nice that you can walk or ride a bike up and down the beach to bypass all the traffic. Its also really great to be staying right in the canal and awesome that there's a garage for parking. We will definitely be back down for a visit sometime soon.
Great house near the beach and the venice canals. Very quiet, "homey" neighbourhood and close to almost everything. Very small garage, but having rented a compact, it fitted nicely. Not a lot of street parking otherwise.
Lauren had left clear instructions both before and when we got to the house, so we got in and found everything perfectly.
The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed, as did the bathroom. If you want to use the speakers, be sure to bring a cable for anything else than an iPhone 4.
The patio only has direct sun in the early morning, otherwise it is shaded. This is probably perfect in the summertime, but as we were here in the winter, we rarely used it.
The only remark I have is that it was a bit hard to get in contact with Lauren through the e-mail address listed. I tried a couple of times with no luck. When I switched to text message she answered almost immediatly and was very helpful.
great place and enjoyed my week there. perfect location and comfy bed, would stay again and hope to in the future.
Nous avons réservé un logement a Los Angeles via airbnb, avec, parmi nos critères, que les offres de logement de taille suffisante avec parking, car nous utilisions une voiture pour notre séjour. Arrivés vers 15h au logement, impossible de rentrer la voiture dans le parking, trop petit pour un véhicule pourtant normal. Nous avons tourné UNE heure pour trouver une place dans la rue. Un après midi de gâché. L'hôte contacté nous a dit qu'il allait nous proposer un parking de taille normale proche du logement. Mercredi, la seule proposition qu'il nous a fait, était un autre logement a 300$ la nuit, donc un supplément de 125$. Obligé de garer la voiture dans la rue, nous avons eu 3 contraventions pour un montant de 200$, difficile pour un français de comprendre les spécificités locales, l'hôte n'ayant pas pris la peine de nous alerter sur les règles de stationnement dans la rue (mardi de 8h à 10h interdit de se garer à droite, le mercredi interdit à gauche). Pour etayer nos dires, nous avons une preuve ecrite de sa part dans laqyelle il reconnait que le parking est trop petit pour une voiture normale. Des vacances gâchées. Nous n'aurions jamais loué ce logement si on nous avait prévenu AUPARAVANT qu'il pourrait s'avérer impossible de rentrer un véhicule dans leur parking.
Autre illusion, la surface n'est pas indiquée dans l'annonce, le logement qui comporte une chambre est annoncé capable d'accueillir 5 personnes, on s'attend naturellement à un grand sejour pour compenser la chambre seule, la photo du séjour laisse d'ailleurs cette impression. Or en fait, le séjour fait à peine 16 m2 (12×15 feet), espace incapable de loger et d'accueil 5 personnes dans des conditions correctes. Ce logement est plutôt adapté pour un couple avec 1 enfant maximum, petits espaces, petites tables. Pour finir l'ensemble, meubles, tapis, tables, rideaux, meubles de cuisine, ... est ancien. Il n'y a pas une table de taille correcte pour 5 personnes. Une arnaque en bonne et due forme.
We had a great time at the Cozy Venice Beach Surf pad. The pad is exactly as described in the pictures. The location is great, as it is right on a main public access to the canals. However, since the space is on the second floor, it still feels very, very private. The place was clean and ready to receive us with lots of HOT water and good pressure. We are a family of 3 and had plenty of room, with one person sleeping in the front room. Friends stopped by and there is lots of places to sit. This place is set up so the check-in process is very self-sufficient and minimal contact is needed with Lauren. I actually never communicated with Lauren at all, but that was not a problem. The check-in instructions are perfect and all went very smooth. It was actually kind of nice not to have to worry about coordinating with the host on our arrival time and allowed us much flexibility. Yes, what everyone else says about the garage is very true. It is tight, but we did not lose our side view mirror backing out, so that is great! Because the apartment is on the public access path, it is really easy (and safe - no cars!) to walk to the beach and the Venice Boardwalk, only two blocks away. Nothing really bad to say at all and we recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay on the Canals.
Great place in the perfect location, Lauren was a superb host, very accommodating and easy to deal with, wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place!
Lauren’s apartment was super sweet.
The first of many great experiences here was the lovely soft bed after our long flight.
Over our three days stay here we also discovered the beautiful venice canals. I was excited to borrow Lauren’s boat and rowing the canals at sunset didn’t disappoint. We thoroughly recommend it.
The beach is literally a couple of minutes away, which was brilliant and we also had a lovely stroll through the canals to Abbot Kinney.
Our Prius fitted perfectly in the garage. (I wouldn’t recommend bringing a bigger vehicle, however).
Lauren provided a folder of recommended places and was easy to communicate with throughout our stay. Lauren’s apartment was perfect for our few days in Venice. We loved it. Maybe we’ll live here one day. :)
