This is one of those places you will never want to leave. It's actually even nicer than the photos. I have been renting on airbnb in Venice and Santa Monica for years and I will never stay anywhere else. The house is larger than appears in photos. The location is incredible and the chickens are adorable. The hosts are kind and helpful. I will be back!!!
Wonderful experience - felt like home. Loved the backyard and spent the daylight hours in this very comfy area. I am the cook and we had everything we needed to make meals-which is important. We will come back! thank you Kathleen for a perfect stay-we hated to leave!
Kathleen and Richard's place is very special. My husband and I and our little baby girl felt at home in this magical soulful place. They have designed it together and it is filled with love and some very amazing wood furniture that Richard created himself. Lights are so atmospheric throughout their home and we really appreciated that. The garden is a little heaven with lemons, grapefruits, celery, parsley, cherry tree etc. The two chickens are so charismatic! We let them out every day and loved them around. I miss them already. K and R are thoughtful about each detail there is even a little statue of St. Christopher - the saint of travelers. We loved the fire pit and sitting around it in the evenings with a glass of vine. Kitchen is fully equipped and a heaven to cook in while looking at the garden. Kathleen stayed up late to wait for us as our plane was late and the place had all the essentials in it even detergents for laundry etc. She also bought coffee and cream for us and water some fruits and a few beers. Loved her CD collection too. It was cool how the music was set up to play in the garden if wanted very nice touch enjoyed it with the fire. I could go on and on. Thank you Kathleen and Richard. Say hi to the girls in the garden we miss them!
this house is sooooo nice, I have one just like that on my christmas wish list - I will probably not get one this nice but if I ever do, I too will let others stay there once in a while, just like kathleen and richard - there is a chicken couple living in the garden which added some farm house flair and some comedy - chickens are funny creatures and although I used to like chicken meat, I have definitely and forever stopped eating chicken (and other meat) after having shared the beautiful garden with that chicken couple...
Wonderful location--interesting decor! We had a wonderful time and enjoyed this house very much. The hostess was very responsive and helpful.
We stayed here for just over a week. We found the location to be perfect. It's about a half an hour walk into Santa Monica, but you have Venice Beach and Abbott Kinney Blvd very close. Situated in a very nice area this house was fanstastic. Very well equipped, and able to sleep three (third on a sofa bed) it had everything we needed. Unfortunately we didn't have too much time to enjoy the lovely garden with grill and chill out area, which we were offered full use of. Our hosts checked in on us to ensure we were comforatble wtihout being the slighest bit intrusive. Would highly reccommend and stay here again. Thanks K&R
Kathleen and Richard are wonderful hosts. We stayed while we were relocating to this coast and spent a month and a half in their beautiful home. The kitchen was a delight with beautiful garden views. We had many meals dining outside in the backyard. The neighborhood is fantastic and in walking distance of everything from Abbot Kinney to the beach. Overall it was a great experience.
We had a lovely time at Kathleen's wonderful Venice home. Our hosts were really accommodating & gracious despite our 2 hour delay in arriving at their home. The house was in a brilliant location and very comfortable. We had everything we needed and Kathleen had kindly left a few starter items in the fridge for us.
I would highly recommend anyone stay here & found it to be very family friendly. Thank you for a great stay.
Kathleen's place was fantastic. Probably one of the best airbnb experiences I've had. Her home was lovely, with some great interior decorating, and the garden was just beautiful. We had dinner there many nights. Kathleen was great and very helpful for anything we needed. Highly recommend this place!
A friend and I were fortunate enough to stay at Kathleen and Richard's wonderful home for a month and live like the locals do and it was definitely one of the best airbnb experiences I've had.
The location is ideal: easy walking/biking distance to both Rose Ave and Abbot Kinney as well as the beach but not "so" close so that parking/weekend beach traffic becomes an issue. The house is beautifully decorated inside and out and full of unique touches and character - honestly, the pictures don't quite do it justice...
As someone who likes to cook it was a pleasure to use fresh herbs from the garden and have every kitchen gadget imaginable at your disposal. The backyard is gorgeous and (most importantly) private and there were many nights spent having local friends over and entertaining at the house.
Thanks to Kathleen and Richard's amazing home and hospitality we settled in so quickly and enjoyed the lifestyle on the west side so much that we didn't want to leave after a month! Highly recommended and would love to stay there again soon...
