I have stayed with EJ twice and am already looking forward to my 3rd stay with him in the fall. I love his beautiful whimsical home. I always sleep well in the cozy bangkok room. EJ was kind enough to offer us coffee, continental breakfast, wine, and wifi is always available. Amazing location close to the beach. The best!!!
Esquire is the most wonderful host: He does everything to ensure his guests feel welcome and comfortable in his home. 55 Rose Ave. is a fantastic place to stay:
Great location a block away from the beach, close to the best yoga studios and restaurants of Venice Beach. You can tell that Esquire loves this historic home and puts a lot not love in decorating and making everything about it special.
He even provides a fabulous continental breakfast!
I can't wait to come back to this special place...
Ich war zum zweiten mal im stilvollen Haus von EJ Jauchem und Jake zu Gast. Für mich ist jeder Aufenthalt dort eine inspireierte Zeit. Die schöne Musik im Hintergrund und die vielen Kunstgegenstände verzaubern und regen an. Die Gastgeber sind zuvorkommend und sympathisch und man hat alles, was man braucht zur Verfügung.. Ich werde im Juli und September wieder einige Tage in Los Angeles sein und fraglos wieder bei EJ in Venice buchen. Sehr empfehlenswert. Danke.
Response from E.J.:
Robert has been our guest before and has already made plans to visit again this summer and this fall. The cats now know him on a first name basis!
This home is beautiful and will not disappoint in terms of location, style, cleanliness, facilities and features. Esquire was there to greet us even though we arrived late at night and he provided good information on local things to do and places to eat. The room was very comfortable and surprisingly quiet given the location. I would definitely recommend staying here.
The good points: EJ is friendly and helpful for the couple of times we saw him during our 5 day stay.
BUT: In spite of what the bnb profile says about smoking rules and noise after 10pm, the hosts (EJ and Jake) filled the place with marijuana smoke on at least 3 occasions during our stay and twice played 'nightclub'-type music in the early hours of the morning. Guys if you are going to use drugs so much in the house and make so much noise at 1am and after you need to put this in your profile and warn guests in advance. It was not appreciated.
That was on top of other issues: dirty bathrooms and toilets, very noisy bedroom, poor quality very old food on the breakfast table and dirty kitchen with unwashed dishes for the first 3 days. Other guests arrived during our stay and were ready to leave immediately only they had paid in advance.
Response from E.J.:
These comments are not true. We have scores of reviews on this site and no one else has written anything like this. Just look further down this list.
Esquire wasn't there on arrival hence we were off to a bit of a shaky start which was disappointing and we couldn't get in! When we did the room wasn't ready. The place needed a good go over cleaning wise and when this was bought to Esquire's attention he remedied the situation in all areas.
The neighbourhood, let me just say is colourful! Mixture of all sorts, be prepared..Nonetheless settled into the swing of things and had a good time.
Esquire's was embarrassed and kindly refunded $100 by way of apology, which was not expected but greatly appreciated. Thanks Esquire.
I had such a great time during my stay at Esquires home. This place is just lovely - decorated with beautiful things, art and props. Very inspiring! I loved to be there and enjoyed every minute in this house. Continental breakfast, fresh water all day and comfortable bathrooms.
The beach is around the corner, a one minute walk. Street parking is easy, there a lot of side streets with free lots. There are some dodgy people walking around, but they are peaceful. I would say it is a safe area, I had a good feeling and some nice chats with different people nearby.
Esquire is a good soul and I respect his work as director and producer. He is currently working on a great film project and I was able to have an eye on it.
I wish you all the best, Esquire! Hope to see you soon for another stay at your beautiful house.
I had a fantastic experience at Esquire's gorgeous house. A stones throw from the infamous Venice beach... Comfortable and eclectic accommodation. Every morning Esquire laid out breakfast of yummy organic treats. Much better than any hotel I could have stayed in and MUCH more authentic. I would recommend to everyone to stay here :)
Excellent host and perfect accommodations. Thank you very much.
Esquire was a helpful and very likable host
Easy and considerate house guest.
Esquire was the perfect guest! Punctual, communicative and left the place as if he was never even there.
Esquire was a great guest and cared for the property. Great communication. Would highly recommend.
I have known E. J for many years as a friend and colleague. His home is always an interesting and artistic space, and anyone looking for lodgings in the Venice area will certainly find the Rose Avenue Beach House appealing, convenient and hospitable. He's a wonderful host and will be helpful in suggesting restaurants and other places of interest in the area.
I have known E.J. for over 10 years. He was first a professional colleague and soon became one of my dearest friends. He is smart, warm and funny, a naturally gracious host, and a person of the highest integrity. His house is a gem, and the location simply can not be beat. He knows Venice Beach better than almost anyone. Any guest who stays with E.J. can be assured of an extremely comfortable and most enjoyable stay.
