We've had a unforgettable experience for the past two days. The house is decorated extremely well and stylish. All those artifacts and paintings are amazing.
This apartment was in a perfect location right off of AK. We instant booked the space last minute and Jeff was very accommodating. It was a perfect space for our short visit.
We had a lovely time in Venice. Place was 10 minute walk to boardwalk/beach. Right in heart of Abbott Kinney shopping! Bed was comfy, but only enough towels for 1 day w/3 people. Nice claw foot tub! Very noisy construction next door, new home being built early in am...also Jeff was great til almost week after we left accusing me of breaking a decorative bowl in kitchen. We only used kitchen once in 3 nights & didn't break a thing. Hope this all works out):
Great place to stay! Super convenient location to Abbot Kinney and the beach. Clean, cute apartment, and owners are so nice and accommodating anything we needed. Thanks for a great stay!!
We had a lovely Venice experience renting Jeffs bungalow with our two kids (10 months and 7 years of age). The eclectic interior paired with the back yard made it a fun and homey spot for us to stay in.
A short ten minute walk to the beach and a block from Abbot Kinney was very convenient.
Highly recommended for a genuine Venice beach cottage experience.
It was a great place for a real Venice beach lifestyle experience. Very laid back and is close to the water and boardwalk
The listing is misleading. It's not a loft, it's a ground-floor studio. It was not clean, light and airy as pictured. It was creepy and cluttered. There was random stuff everywhere and it had that funky thrift store smell.
It's 1 block from Abbott Kinney which is a great location, but as a single woman, I didn't feel safe. There was no key for the front door so the place was open all day while I was gone. Jeff provided a key for the gate, but the gate didn't even shut properly so it couldn't be locked. I spent the first of my 3 nights awake on guard and scared that every passerby on the street was coming in. The second and third nights I was kept up from the neighbor's TV which I could hear perfectly as if it were in the apartment.
The location is great if you don't plan on spending time in the apartment and don't care much about security. All I can say is I was very happy to leave!
Jeff was great, period. Very easy to get in touch with which is key. But there were also important issues/problems we had which included no trash bags, wi-fi, shower curtain and toilet paper. Also the fridge was not clean and had old food and liquids in it. Hot Tub and cable didn't work either. So as much as the owner was nice and friendly and easy to get a hold of, the House was not as advertised. Also there was a Huge Trailer sitting outside the kitchen window which was strange. Also be prepared for folks digging thru trash on Weekend mornings looking for recyclables to sell. Other than that if you want to be near Abbot Kinney, great location.
Thanks! Your space was amazing, love the decor and it's especially close to restaurants and bars.
I stayed here one week. This is an unconventional rental that certainly won't be for everyone. But I enjoyed my stay. I'm a tolerant sort. Its a great (but noisy) location so close to A. Kinney. Parking can be iffy. Be careful to follow the signs. The house is sunny & charming but seriously cluttered. The yard is nice. The gas pot belly stove is awesome. The plumbing is great. The kitchen is solid, but no coffee maker.
Worth mentioning: broken hot tub heater; the level of security here is insufficient, the drawers/closet are filled with personal items and not usable.
Jeff and his partner made a last minute reservation for one night at our place to "visit a friend at a dog show". He arrived late and brought a dog. We would have never known about it were it not for someone staying with us who talked to them when they arrived. When I asked him about the dog he claimed he saw nothing on our site re: dogs. We do require pre-approval and a $50 deposit. He did offer to leave but we said no being that the dog would have passed our pre-screening. When he left the next day the place was messier than people who stay a week or more. Dirty dishes left on the table, garbage in the sink, appliances in disarray, lights on, front door wide open and the heater left on. All of this bothered me the most as he is an Airbnb host in another city. He should be familiar with the sites to find important information and certainly be more respectful of the space. While they both were friendly and personable, this is first unfavorable review of a guest I have given.
Jeff booked 2 nights in our cottage for Nov 12-14th but needed to cancel his reservation 3 days before hi arrival time. We have a moderate cancellation policy with air b n b which requires a 5 day notification. Although we could have required Jeff to pay for both nights, we compromised and only accepted payment for 1 night. We wish Jeff the best and hope to host him in our vineyard cottage in the future!
