Très bon séjour au cottage!
La maison est idéalement située, a moins de 5 minutes d'Abbot Kinney en vélo et a 10 minutes de la plage, stationnement facile dans la rue, qui est calme et agréable.
Le cottage est comme décrit, vraiment confortable avec toutes les commodités.
Nous n'avons pas rencontré nos hôtes mais ceux-ci avaient tout prévu pour que nous puissions prendre possession des lieux.
La mise a disposition des vélos est un grand plus pour se balader sur la côte!
Nous recommandons grandement cette adresse.

Ben was a great communicator prior to and during our stay! We met Fara personally but missed Ben.
The cottage was exactly as described. It was in a great location and easy to get around Venice ect...
Unfortunately for us there was a slight heat wave while we stayed and the cottage became very hot. No ac or windows to open at night meant we had to sleep with doors open.
The cottage in Venice was awesome, we loved that it was on a quiet street but really close to the busy commercial areas on venice. It was a charming place to stay, a little warm in the heat of the day, but not a big deal because we were out and about mostly. It was clean, had great amenities, comfortable bed, small AC unit if needed, there were bikes for us to borrow (the locks took some finagling). I would love to stay again next time I'm in the area.
The host is really easy to communicate with and is willing to help if there was any problem. We didn't spend a lot of time at the cottage but it was a pleasant stay at this place.
We did not have the chance to meet Ben, but was very easy to communicate with. The cottage is a perfect place to stay with a beautiful garden. Gorgeous location, cosy, very private and quiet. It is walking distance to Abbot Kinney for fantastic restaurants and bars. It is even close to the beach, for a nice walk or take the bikes Ben and Fara offer. The neighborhood is safe and for us it was easy to find a parking spot just infront of the house. Internet worked well and the fridge is big enough to store some food and drinks.
We had a great time - thank you Ben and Fara!
Ben and Fara's Cottage was my first Airbnb experience and it truly was a great one. The Cottage was perfect for our stay, very private, clean and the setting was so peaceful. Parking was convenient throughout the day. We were able to check out a couple of Ben and Fara's restaurant recommendations: The Superba Food and Bread and Cjelina and both were fantastic. The Cottage is a short walk to Abbott Kenny where there's great shopping and good eats. This is such a charming area and I loved every moment of my visit!
Appartment très cosy et bien équipé, la jouissance du jardin et le prêt de vélos est un vrai plus. En vélo, on est alors a 5 minutes d'Abbot Kinney et 10 minutes de Venice beach.
Très chouette expérience.
Ben and Fara were extremely easy to communicate with. They immediately confirmed my stay and answered any questions that I had.
A couple of days before my arrival, I texted them to check if I could arrive a few hours earlier since my flight was getting in early. They kindly accommodated my request.
The cottage is in a perfect location near Lincoln, which is a main street. Thus, taking day trips and getting back and forth from the airport were easy, yet the cottage is in a quiet, quaint neighborhood. I got lucky and found a parking spot to unload my luggage directly across the street from the cottage. Once I was settled into the cottage, I was able to easily find other parking spots when I was returning from day trips.
The two best parts about the cottage are the location of the cottage and its garden. The location was perfect since it allowed me to get around Venice Beach and Santa Monica easily. In addition, I was able to go to Malibu, La Jolla, Laguna Beach, and Crystal Cove during my stay since they were all within a twenty-five minute to a two-hour drive. The cottage was extremely quiet since it is behind Ben and Fara's house. Plus, the cottage's garden area is absolutely gorgeous and serene.
The cottage is basic but large for a studio. The bed was comfortable, and the sectional coach provided plenty of space. Although the cottage does not have a kitchen, the mini fridge was perfect for keeping fruit and yogurt for a light morning breakfast. The bathroom was basic, but it had everything I needed. The cottage was also extremely clean.
I cannot thank Ben and Fara enough for sharing their cottage with me. I had an incredible stay!
Ben and Fara were the perfect Airbnb hosts – friendly, easily contactable and there if you needed them. The cottage is small but is suitable for 2 people to stay in comfortably. The shower water pressure is great, the bed is comfortable, there is a bar fridge, great WiFi connection, Cable on a large flat-screen TV, a washing machine and dryer (we didn’t use these though) and two bikes to ride around the neighbourhood on (we recommend riding them from Venice to Santa Monica Pier at sunset). We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to stay in Venice.
Ben and Fara were very friendly. Both available if we had questions. The cottage was nice and cozy. Perfect for our private getaway. Parking was easy to find. Overall great experience and would definitely recommend!
Ben was an incredible guest! He was extremely easy to communicate with, and left my apartment in absolutely perfect condition.
Ben and Fara were perfect guests. They left the cottage immaculate and were great at communicating. I really enjoyed meeting them and hearing about their experiences as airbnb hosts as well. So glad they came and we highly recommend them!
Gosh! Ben and Fara are a lovely, adorable couple, each engaging and interesting. I really enjoyed hosting them (also airbnb hosts). They were appreciative, clean, and very respectful of the house. Without a doubt, I'd host them again, and again. I hope they will return.
Ben anb his girlfriend have been nice guests.
Everything went allright.
They left the flat clean and tidy.
I highly recommend them.
Ben was a great guest. He returned the apartment in perfect condition and all communication with him was awesome. Ben is welcome in my apartment at any time. His girlfriend is lovely as well.
Thanks for staying in our house and I lhope you had a lovely time in Kyoto. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.
Ben was a great guest who I enjoyed hosting. Communication was smooth and he took great care of my flat. I'd be happy to host him again any time.
Great renter. Would have back anytime!
