Vanessa was an absolutely awesome host and incredibly easy to communicate with. The property was really nice and is close proximity to restaurants, bars, and the beach!! I would definitely recommend this spot in Venice!
Thank you so much!!
We had a great time at Vanessas place. The house was large and suited us well (3kids and 2adults). The kitchen was fully equieped, we had everything. The kids loved the hot tube in the backjard. Although it was shared among other guests we pretty much had it to our self. It is very close to shopping, beach etc, and Starbucks was just around the corner!!
Vanessa was a fantastic host and always quick to respond to inquiries and questions. The bungalow was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a great time in Venice. The location is perfect and within walking distance of everything you could possibly need. We especially loved the stroll to the Cow's End for our morning coffee and danishes. Thanks Vanessa, we look forward to coming back!
The house was incredible! My friends and I went to Venice for a girls weekend and we had just as much fun hanging at the house as we did out! ... If not more fun at the house. Vanessa was so kind and clear when walking us through the house. I would definitely rent through her again!
The listing is exactly as described. The check-in/check-out process was simple. The location was amazing. The house is decorated in such a fun and funky way...you immediately feel "home" walking in the door.
Thanks for a great weekend Vanessa!
Vanessa's Safari bungalow is absolutely charming, decorated with good taste, and the courtyard is also very welcoming. The neighborhood could not be better, it's great also to have parking space included. While there are only two bedrooms, we were comfortable as a group of 5.
Vanessa was very flexible and understanding to meet our needs, attention to detail shows experience in running a bed and breakfast.
We strongly recommend Surfin' Safari to be stay in Venice Beach & LA!
Vanessa was great host, she let us leave luggages before check in. Bungalow was awesome as Venice is. We had such a great stay!
Really great place, close to the beach, really comfy and nice!
The apartment is cosy and fits easily 5 people (three adults and two children in our case). The nice "jungle style" yard includes deck chairs and a hammock, which is very nice to chill out in the shade during the hot hours. Furthermore, the location is perfect, just a 2 minutes walk away from the beach and from plenty of bars and restaurants. Vanessa is kind and helpful. She has been very responsive when we've had some questions or issues.
Vanessa was great. She was very quick to return any emails or calls. The neighborhood is awesome. So close to the beach, restaurants, coffee, walking path, but also quiet.
Vanessa and Nick were a delight to host - friendly, amiable, and tidy. It was a joy to have them visit our little neck of the woods. We hope to have them back anytime, and also wish to stay at one of their rentals on the beach someday.
Vanessa is simply the best in her field. She's an all star at communication as well as a local community expert. Her outgoing and approachable disposition makes her not only a great host but also a fast friend. Your planned visit to Southern California wouldn't be complete without a stay at one of her affiliated properties. The experience is unparalleled.
Vanessa is a highly trusted and knowledgeable member of the LA Host Community. She is a model Host and a leader among her peers. I have always found Vanessa to be professional in her dealings with Guests and fellow Hosts. She is also very funny and great to hang out with. I have met literally hundreds of Hosts through Airbnb and Vanessa is by far one of my favorites. I would trust her decisions as if they were my own.
I have known Vanessa for years and she has always been the ultimate hostess; she loves meeting people and is kind, compassionate, and incredibly thoughtful.
Vanessa rocks. She's a solid lady with a great heart. In the time I've known her, I've known her to be courteous and genuinely caring about her tenants. I'd love to be a guest at one of her properties, and I'd be glad to do more business with her.
Vanessa is awesome! Always cheerful.
I have been known Vanessa for a long time- she is a great friend. She has lived in the Venice area for years and knows everyone. She is a very considerate and thoughtful person who truly enjoys what she does. She wants everyone around her to have a good time. She will go out of her way to do the same for you. I would highly recommend Vanessa's help with any of your vacationing needs- I guarantee you won't be disappointed!!!
Vanessa is a long time friend and a completely accommodating hostess with the mostess! There are not many people I know that I would allow to guide me on my precious vacation time but Vanessa is one of them. I have seen her properties and know that each is as special as she is! Go with the best!!!!!
