I'm from Venice Beach, California. I am a frequent traveller and an architect .

We recently stayed at the Ella House for a week while in town for our daughter's wedding. It was perfect for us. It was the right size, amenities, location…..etc Everything was as described! We couldn't have asked for another thing. In fact , we enjoyed it so much, that this will be our home away from home from now on when we go back to visit! Highly recommend!
We loved being close to the beach (we drove because we have kids), but I didn't feel safe staying their with my kids. There were a lot of vagrant people walking in front of the house. There was also a dog next door that kept me from sleeping at night. The house is just as cute as pictured and it had everything we needed, but I'd say not great for kids.
The Ella House is lovely. It's cozy and relaxing. Everything you need is there! Quiet neighborhood and convenient to travel to beach and Hollywood etc. Close to stores for stuff you need too. All the common house properties are great. Our travel favorite. Having a garage makes life easy too
Great location and cute place. Perfect for one or two people. Super easy to get to all the great food and coffee on Abbot Kinney and Rose, and there's a Whole Foods up the street. The little front yard area was nice for sitting in the sun and getting some work done. It got a little chilly at night, but there's a space heater (although I never actually turned it on - I just put on a sweatshirt).
Beautiful home great stay. The location was perfect for us to visit family in Mar Vista and still be close to to beaches and restaurants.
We stayed for three nights at the Common Studio Venice and it was really wonderful. The studio looked exactly as it did in the pictures. The location is perfect - very close to Abbot Kinney, Whole Foods, and the beach. We rented bikes and parked our car in front in the street the entire time. The street is quiet and has a nice neighborhood feel. We would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to any if our friends who are traveling to LA for a relaxing weekend.
We stayed in the Opposite House and loved our experience. There's more than enough space to make the decision to go with a vacation rental over a hotel a smart move. We loved the private yard and and the outdoor cooking option (the grill even has an oven) and the kitchen met our needs. We spent much of our time with the door wide open and the fountain burbling busily in the yard. The Opposite House was clean and yet didn't reek of perfumed cleaning products. Our medium-sized truck fit easily in the private parking area, which was a huge plus. A vehicle is a smart idea here, mostly because it's L.A. and grocery shopping at places like Whole Foods would be a bit of a haul on a bike. That said, I easily biked to Abbot Kinney, the ocean, and Santa Monica. There are some great restaurants and coffee shops in the area...and L.A. people-watching is fantastic. Street noise really wasn't an issue for us and the handy air conditioners provided cool, quiet white noise. The home shares a wall with another rental, but again, noise wasn't an issue. We would happily stay again. One note; the Bose sound system isn't hooked up...but the iPod and dock worked just fine for any music we wanted to hear.
Yuwen is a great hostess and she provides a wonderful home! The house is in a good location for west side LA... Only a Mike from the beach and we walked to a few restaurants even though we had a car.
The house was roomy, very clean, and spacious. We had a couple annoying requests and Yuwen responded right away and tended to our requests without hesitation - a true hostess in every sense of the word. I would rent this house again if I needed to be in west LA!!!
Fantastic place! Exactly as described. This was my first ABNB experience and it could not have been better. Nice quiet location. Easy parking. Easy walk to beach and shopping district. Try Gratitude down the street for a healthy vege/vegan meal or make your own with supplies from WholeFoods. Def my new goto place for business trips to the area.
Fabulous guest, welcome back anytime!
