Mark was incredible! I gave him just a few hours notice, as my son was in California and had no where to stay! The loft was perfect, exactly as shown and described by mark. He was very quick to respond and understood my situation and made it happen. Thank you Mark....a terrific spot, phenomenal loft and a great host! Jane
I had a great time staying at Mark's loft while I was in LA. The location is hard to beat: 20 minutes from LAX, 10 minute walk to the beach, and 5 minute walk to all the eclectic shops and restaurants/cafes/food trucks on Abbot Kinney.
The space is on the top floor of a unique loft-style building located on a quiet street in Venice. I loved all the industrial fixtures, radiant floor heat, and blazing fast internet. Plus, when you open the gigantic windows and sliding doors, the apartment has a wonderful indoor/outdoor feeling that's so hard to find outside of California.
Although I didn't get to meet Mark in person, but he was very responsive to emails. Check in and out was a breeze with a coded lock box for keys. The only negative is that sometimes you can hear noises from the neighbors. I wasn't bothered by this, but if you're looking for absolute privacy, this space might not be the best place for you to stay.
I highly recommend it to folks who are looking for a stylish and spacious place to stay. Leave you car in the (reserved) parking spot and walk to everything!
Mark's place is very, very cool. Very modern design and details abound. I was nervous at first that it would be difficult to regulate the temperature, but I was always able to easily make the whole place very comfortable with the heating system and the very large windows. Very easy walking distance to the beach and other cool spots around Venice.
Thanks for the clear and descriptive location details of your rental. It was pleasure. Would do it again.
Mark's place was amazing. Perfectly serene.
What a wonderful trip! Mark's place was comfortable, clean, and conveniently located. It's also a very cool, unique architectural space. Mark was incredibly nice and accommodating, and I hope very much to stay at his place on future trips to LA. Altogether a fabulous week!
I stayed in Mark's cool cube during January 2014 for a work trip - it's a VERY neat space and totally unique. Mark is an awesome host - he's very considerate, warm, and flexible. I really appreciate his kindness.
Mark's loft in Venice is at once industrial and tranquil. The exposed beams and concrete floors were cool and comfortable (the floors are heated). The best part, though, is that nearly the entire apartment opens up to the outside thanks to some amazing windows Mark designed. Thanks, Mark.
Really Cool open space with lots of natural light.
I really enjoyed my stay and highly review Mark's place. He is a very understanding and kind host who cares about the needs of his guests. The loft was clean and spacious and perfect for the environmentally conscious traveler. You will feel at home.
