Tara was such a great host. Everything was perfectly organized and her apartment just awesome. All as described. I would definitely recommend this place to stay. Waking up with a stunning view of the ocean, I definitely enjoyed my stay.
Had a great stay at Tara's apt!!! Pro: location, ease, clean apt, and Tara (she made the stay easy/flexible and always checked in to make sure things were ok- thanks Tara !!
Cons: the Venice "locals" can be a bit much ( but if you want an authentic Venice experience the place is perfect)
Tara was a awesome host. She was very accomodating and gave a lot of ideas on where to go and eat (which she nailed on the few places we got to go). When we go back to Venice, we will definitely be looking to see if her space is availible. Thanks Tara!
Venice Beach Bungalow describes this place very well. Tara's place is a very cute studio on the edge of the Venice Boardwalk. You literally can not get any closer to the beach!
Tara went a step further than she needed to by making herself easily reachable and suggesting wonderful local places for us to go. Even though I had been to LA before, it was like having a local bring us around!
The wi-fi signal was a bit weak, but for us, it was refreshing to put our electronics down for the weekend and enjoy the amazing location!
Thank you for opening your home to us, I would definitely stay here again.
This was the perfect location for what we needed on our first trip to LA! Love Venice Beach and the surrounding area, and Tara's apartment was very accommodating, clean and comfortable. I loved waking up to the sound of the ocean and literally being a few feet from the sand. Tara not only was very responsive and willing to work with our time frame, but she also provided us with an extensive list of restaurants/bars in the neighborhood and what to do - it was very helpful and much appreciated! If I ever make it back to the neighborhood I will definitely look into booking Tara's space again!!
My wife and I were in Venice on business and stayed here. Tara's Venice Beach Bungalow was indeed right on the sand, with a terrific view of the water. Getting in and out was easy, and Tara's instructions were great. Her place was clean and in a good location. We would stay here again.
Tara's apartment is in an amazing location but is very very small. It's just one little room. Views are greast though.
It had NO WIFI and it took over a day to get the password from Tara. Her comms were awful as she was at Coachella (maybe she is better normally) and when we got it it did not work we had to go to the bar across the street to do anything online. Parking was very tough to get but when we got it (after driving around a while and got lucky) it is free and on the same street just bring patients. Tara also left a dirty laundry basket out which was kinda gross she easily could have hid it. All in all, I'd say mehh, as the place is not cheap at all.
Awesome location right at the beach! Tara is a great thoughtful host and was easy to get in touch with. She even gave us very useful advice on what to do and where to eat. Parking with our rental car was very easy.
Would absolutely recommend this to anyone! Thank you Tara!
My girlfriend, Sonya, and I stayed at Tara's for 4 days during new years week.
The day we arrived to the home, we were struck by the phenomenal view of the beach and sound of the waves, seagulls, and the live music from performers on the beach. It was very hard for us to unpack or leave as the cool light breeze circulated the little room.
We woke up every morning to see the sun rise through the window, and walked out for every sunset. The location was also great for restaurants that would suit anyone [vegan, healthy eater, or quality steak]. Most, if not all high yelp-rated restaurants are within a couple of block walking distance from the location.
Parking was not easy, but it isnt impossible either. But if you think about it, with a location like that you wouldnt want to take your car around, as most things are within a walking distance.
The facilities in the home were more than what we needed. All kitchen and bathroom facilities were clean and in good condition.
The bed was right next to the window, every morning you wake up to a dreamy view.
Despite the fact that its an old apartment building with not-so-thick walls, the apartment was very quiet at night and neighbors seemed nice and welcoming.
The elevators were super slow, but the walk up the stairs is pretty short and easy to access.
The internet connectivity was a little weak during the day time, but there are plenty of wifi equipped coffee shops around.
Overall, Sonya and I enjoyed our stay on new years. Not to mention that fire works were visible from the window.
I defiantly plan to come back!
This place was perfect for our weekend getaway. The place is nice, clean and safe and as close as you can get to the beach.
