Excellent location and great value. Jared was very responsive and the entire process was seamless.
Jared's place was great for a quick weekend trip to LA. Staying within walking distance of the Venice Boardwalk, beach, Abbott Kinney Blvd, and Santa Monica Main Street was a perfect way to relax and rest while enjoying great food and the quirkiness of Venice Beach.
In regards to the apartment, it was on a quiet side street and the neighbors were also quiet. We really felt like we were away from the hustle and bustle of the city even though we were so close to many busy streets. Also, we always enjoy making our own meals when on vacation and the kitchen had all of the basic equipment needed for cooking. Overall a great place to stay and we will definitely keep it in mind for our next trip out to LA.
Jared has the perfect Venice style place. There's something said about being this close to the water.. its so peaceful. You're literally RIGHT there! The check-in process was seamless and the place was spotless. I was very happy to choose this place for the week I was in Venice, and your own parking! Can't beat that with this location.
I cancelled my stay due to a last-minute family emergency, so instead of staying there two nights/three days with my fiance, my fiance stayed there alone one night and flew home at 5am. So he only saw the inside of the place for an hour or so - but he did report that it was a great location, adequately clean and nicely decorated.
Response from Jared:
Sorry you didn't get to stay, Ashley! Please reach out with your paypal address and I'll issue a partial refund!
Price + location can't be beat! Fantastic, funky little beachside apartment. Jared was super easy to get a hold of when we had questions and made things easy. Definitely recommend if you want to experience Venice Beach!
Jared's place is really perfect for a Venice beach getaway - solo or couples. The place is clean and has just about anything you need to relax and enjoy the area. Can't wait to stay again in the future!
We had a short, but very comfortable stay in Jared's apartment. It is clean, spacious and fully equipped. And location-it is literally 1 min walk to beach. Jared was very helpful, he helped us with early check in and answered tones of my question) thank you, Jared!
We have spent two weeks in December 2013 in Jared's apartment. I would not say that Jared's apartment is at one block from the beach but one step from the beach because it is so near. You can even access the magnificent Marvin Braude Bikeway without going in the street. So, it is perfectly located in Venice Beach. The apartment comes with a "real parking" with easy access and much space. However, you don't even need a car if you spend your time in Venice Beach because there are many restaurants (for the "doggy- baggers" style to the gourmet class) very close to his apartment on Main Street, Abbot Kinney blvd, Washington blvd., etc. We have not used the kitchen except for the breakfasts. It seems to have everything necessary to prepare meals. The apartment is clean and it has everything that is proposed in the announcement. It has a comfortable working (thinking) space with a high speed Internet (WiFi). The bed (mattress) is also very comfortable and the room is quiet. The apartment has a real shower that works correctly although it could not be considered a wheel chair accessible shower (joke). The toilet is conveniently separated from the shower. If you know Venice Beach, its state (price and quality) of the rental market, you will consider that Jared's apartment is a very good deal. We did not meet Jared, but we have only communicated with him only by emails. He responds immediately. He seems to be a very charming guy.
Jared was a great guest. He was friendly and personable. He was quiet and clean, and respected all of the house rules. He is welcome back anytime and is highly recommended as a guest!
Jared and Summer sent a last minute request on Friday night and I was happy to be able to host them. They were celebrating Summer's birthday so I was thrilled to have them enjoy the deck on a summer night with the cicada's buzzing in the woods. They were lovely, bright, charming and a pleasure to host!
Jared contacted me for a last-minute reservation in San Francisco and wow, it was an easy and smooth set up. I didn't have the pleasure to meet him in person but he was very kind and practical in the communications and left the apartment in a great shape. Definitely recommended as a serious, kind, no-fuss guest!
