Other things to note

You will experience the charm and serenity of canal life. Take a stroll over the walk bridges and note the rowboats, kayaks and canoes moored in front of the houses, the lovely landscaped gardens fronting a variety of architectural styles and the abundance of migratory birds resting along the canal banks.

The Venice Canals have been the home of many famous entertainment celebrities thru the years (Jim Morrison of the Doors among them) and are a filming location for many TV shows and Movies, including Valentine’s Day with Ashton Kucher, and Hollywood Homicide with Harrison Ford.

Steve is an excellent host and this was the perfect Airbnb for our trip. Steve was in touch with us and was very responsive. He was flexible and coordinated our late check in without a problem. The apartment is well-appointed and stocked with all necessary shower and bathroom supplies. There were snacks and cold water and chilled wine in the refrigerator. The mattress was very confortable. In essence, this unit avoids all of the pitfalls I've run into with the Airbnb experience - lack of towels, one roll of toilet paper for an extended stay, horrible mattress, etc. The location was also perfect! It was very quiet on the canals, but just a few blocks to the beach and boardwalk and to all the restaurants on Abbott Kinney. We would love to stay here again in the future.

This was such a great property in such a unique location. Being able to take Steve's rowboat around the canals at sunset was incredibly memorable, and a huge perk to staying here. This was also very conveniently located a short walk to Venice Beach and a longer (but very scenic) walk to Santa Monica. We ended up leisurely walking, window shopping, and snacking all the way up to Santa Monica and then renting a bike for the 15-minute ride back. Will absolutely stay here again next time we are in LA

We really enjoyed our stay here. Steve is very friendly and very quick at responding to messages. The place was clean and in the perfect location. Steve even provided bottled water, some wine, and some snacks. We would definitely stay again!

This was my second stay with Steve and it was as good as the first. Love the location, the iconic canals and the privacy/cleanliness of the studio. I'll be back!

Steve's a wonderful host and has been super accommodating. The place is as described and as pictured - very comfortable, clean, and nice. The location is unparalleled, being right on the canal and only a few minutes walk to the beach and hotspots. It's great to be able to come back to the apartment and rest in between outings. A note about the parking spot - it is a very tight spot because there isn't a whole lot of room in front of the house. Do check with Steve if you have a vehicle larger than a compact car/SUV.

Steve is an amazing host: kind, respectful, accommodating - couldn't have asked for more. The property is clean, well furnished, and in the heart of Venice. This is my second time in Venice and at Steve's - it will definitely be my first choice when I visit again. You will not be disappointed! Thanks again for everything, Steve!
