My boyfriend and I stayed at Amanda's place while in town for the LA marathon. She was lovely to deal with and the place was perfect. It is steps from the beach and a short walk to the shops and restaurants on Abbot Kinney as well as the Venice Canals. Having a parking spot was also very convenient. She met us upon our arrival and answered all of our questions. Her place is clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone visiting Venice.
I loved staying at Amanda's place on Venice beach. The location couldn't have been better--1 short block from the beach and a couple blocks from Abbott Kinney. Amanda was very organized, friendly, and helpful--she gave great recommendations and made sure I had everything I needed. And the apartment was attractive, clean, and comfortable, a really nice place to spend a few days (wish I could have stayed longer)! If you'd like to be in the heart of Venice, I definitely recommend staying here.
Amanda is a very considerate and responsive host! She went the extra mile to make sure I was able to check in/out with no problem, and responded quickly to any questions I had. Her place is right in the heart of Venice - the boardwalk, beach, Abbot Kinney, everything. It is also a very welcoming and comfortable place. Having a parking spot available for use in that area was a very nice perk!
In the interest of a fair and balanced review, I should mention that this location is definitely close to the colorful area of town that Venice is known for, and the thin walls make much of the surrounding noise from the street/neighbors audible at night. Also, I should mention that if you're a big guy like me, you might find the bathroom/shower a tight squeeze.
Enjoyed my time here!
Amanda's place is located right in the middle of it, allowing you the freedom to just get up, walk out and be right there. The place is within walking distance to all the main points in Venice. Outstanding stay. Definitely recommend.
We stayed at Amanda's place for 5 nights in the beginning of January. The place itself is extremely good located. It's within walking distance of Venice boardwalk, Abbot Kinney's and Venice channels. It's close to everything but still in a quiet street and has private parking lot. The apartment is cozy enough and well equipped. Amanda is a very helpful, polite and responsive person. I definitely recommend Amanda's apartment for anyone looking for nice place to stay in Venice.
We had a very comfortable stay in this wonderfully located and very comfortable apartment. It's a stone's throw from the beach yet just far enough away that you don't hear the boardwalk activity. The street where it's located curves and turns into Abbot Kinney and we walked there daily for good meals, coffee, and gifts. In fact, after parking upon arrival, we didn't move our car again during our two day stay, since we really enjoyed walking everywhere. Amanda was flexible about check in and out times and offered restaurant ideas and a quick orientation to Venice. We did hear some noise from the neighbors, but that's not surprising (email hidden)ly urban area. We would definitely consider staying here again!
We had a great time! The apartment was super clean and, though it's clear someone lives there, it was well prepared for us to stay in (most rentals which are a full-time home feel a bit too much like staying at a friend's house, except you don't know them). Our timing was a mess so we didn't get a chance to meet our host, but she was completely available when we had questions and everything went smoothly.
We would happily stay there again!
Amanda was great and the location of her apartment couldn't be better! A block to the heart of the Venice beach strip with lots to do and see. She was a pleasure to communicate with and set us up to feel right at home from the first meeting. I would definitely stay here again!
Staying at Amanda's place in Venice Beach was nothing less than fabulous. She's the nicest host ever and a sweetheart that will just make you want to hug and thank her for all the patience, her no-problems attitude and her incredible laid-back kindness.
The appartment is situated right next to Venice broadwalk, leaving the house you will find yourself right on the beach and Abbott Kinney, Santa Monica Main street and the Venice sign are in very close walking distance. The entire interior is lovely, while feeling very welcoming and cozy, every single friend of mine that came by to visit just fell in love with the place and wanted to move in immediately, it's perfect in more ways than I can describe right now and Amanda will definitely be the first one I'll call once I'm going back to visit LA - prime location, prime appartment and DEFINITELY a prime host - Lots of kisses from London, dear, ad thank you for an incredibly perfect summer of '13 !!
Amanda was great, her house was very clean, middle of everything, don't need a car for the location, since is in the middle of everything. She was also very flexible, 5 starts. Cant go wrong if you stay at Amenda's
Very nice tenant! Amanda was very friendly and the communication was perfect. Thank you!
