Meriel's airbnb was amazing! everything we needed and more! The perfect tranquil place to escape and relax.
Such an amazing oasis! Coming from Brooklyn into this garden Eden was so refreshing and restorative. Meriel provided food, water, and fresh figs from her abundant garden. She also recommended a wonderful yoga studio nearby and left handwritten directions and reviews or nearby beaches and restaurants along with tips on best times and parking advice! The view outside is wonderful thru the floor to ceiling glass doors and it's especially great thru the restroom window. The queen best is comfortable, the kitchenette is great if you want to make your own food, it has a hot plate, toaster, microwave and small fridge, which Meriel stocked with eggs, and sundries. Highly recommended if you want to rejuvenate near the beach!
A beautiful oasis in the heart of the city. The location was close to everything I needed for my short stay ( beach, great restaurants and entertainment). Parking was a breeze and it was nice being within walking distance to Venice. Meriel was a wonderful at suggesting places in the area as well as providing maps with detailed directions. I can't wait to come back and stay for a longer visit.
We LOVED our stay at the tropical venice beach house. We travelled with our 1 year old baby from Europe and it was a perfect, child friendly accomodation. Meriel even had bath toys and beach toys waiting for our little one. The little courtyard was was inviting and relaxing with fig and guava trees right there. Meriel, the host was very sweet and helpful. We will definetly be back! Thank you very much for such a wonderful stay :)
Meriel's beach house was perfect. Short bike ride to Venice Beach, on Meriel's complementary bikes! Really comfortable place with kitchenette, bath/shower room, wifi and patio area for chilling out. Meriel left us loads of snacks as well as tea, coffee and milk.
Meriel was lovely. She gave us lots of local tips and we had some good chats. Her tip for a hidden beach on our drive up to Santa Barbara was superb. Meriel - Maeve and I are definitely hoping to return! Higly recommended.
This was a charming cottage on a very quiet street. There were bikes available and a lovely assortment of food. We had trouble finding the place add the address is not on gps but meriel was helpful when I frantically called. Meriel even gave us some dogs from the fig tree outside our window! Delightful!
Everything was perfectly prepared, food for first breakfast was highly appreciated (we came late!). We enjoyed riding the bicycles provided by Merriel. Fresh fruits and veggies from Merriels garden were the highlights of our meals. This place ist highly recommendable.
Meriel ist the best host you can imagine and the place she offers is a little paradise in Venice Beach. It is such a calm, cosy and wonderful place - the little garden is beautiful and we could even use Meriels great bicycles to go to the beach. Meriel was so helpful and kind! I was really sad when we had to leave. This place was definitely the best accomodation we stayed in our 3-weeks-holiday. Thank you so much for everything, Meriel (and Albert)!
We arrived at Meriel's and immediately felt at home. Meriel had prepared her back cottage to feel very homey with all the essentials we could have needed. We wanted for nothing! Whether it was tea, shampoo or sunscreen she provided everything we could have possibly forgotten or misplaced. She also had wonderful advice on where to eat, shop etc. I will never stay at a hotel again!
Meriel is a wonderful host! We are so delighted to have met her. She went way out of her way to provide 3 bikes for us dot get around town, a rich variety of food, ideas for things we wanted to do, a lovely little house surrounded by lush plants and trees of all kinds inside a compound that was so comforting. Our visit could not have been better!
This is the best place I've lived in Los Angeles. I lived there for more than a year when I moved to the US from Europe. It is great people and an even greater location! It is minutes away from the beach (you will have to learn to surf) and even closer to bars, restaurants and shops with Abbot Kinney just down the street. Venice is a real hub for young creatives and people who enjoy the beach lifestyle. There is no other way to experience the real Venice life than living with an original Venice family!
I'm close friends with her son so Meriel is like a mother-figure to me. She's immensely generous and brilliant in her work. I've spent tons of time on this property and absolutely love being there. The garden, the house, the room: all of them sooo tasteful and comfortable and clean. Truly a charming place to be and right in the sweet spot of Venice. The room they made is brand new and renovated with a kitchenette and a claw-foot tub in the bathroom. French doors open onto the deck and backyard, complete with a tangerine tree and beautiful planting. So much attention to detail, both in landscape and design. Wish I could stay there myself! Wonderful people, wonderful spot, with restaurants nearby and a direct line to the beach. This is a total treasure and as the word spreads, this room is gonna be booked solid. It's just that good.
