My place is a studio apartment on the 1st floor of a 4 unit building, which is just half a block from the boardwalk, beach, windward circle, skatepark and muscle beach!! 10 minute walk to the Venice Pier!
The neighborhood is very lively with lots going on all of the time. If you are very sensitive to noise, this neighborhood is not ideal. This is an extremely centrally located place right in the middle of everything Venice has to offer.
I am open to discussing pets staying.
My building is from the 70's, and much of the interior is still vintage please keep in mind that just because the floors, counters, sink, tubs etc might have permanent markings, this does not mean it is dirty or hasn't been cleaned. I assure you that my place is scrubbed and disinfected between each guest, it's just part of the character of my place :) My place is not the Ritz Carlton, it is in an older building.. but if you've always wanted to have the full Venice Beach experience, this is perfect for you! EVERYTHING IS EXACTLY AS DEPICTED IN MY PHOTOS. My place is always cleaned between each and every guest (Sheets, Towels, Bathroom, Kitchen, Floors) The location is right smack in the middle of everything, The beach and boardwalk are literally steps away, walking distance to Abbot Kinney, Rose Ave, the Venice beach Pier, the farmers market, library, and pretty much everything else, it's all right here or just a short Uber drive away.
My place doesn't have air conditioning but there is always a cool ocean breeze blowing through and I do provide fans :)
Guests have access to the whole apartment, and everything in it. Clean bed linens, bath towels, shampoo, conditioner and body wash are provided. I also hook you up with a sweet welcome basket filled with all kinds of delicious random treats and a bottle of wine.
Interaction with guests
Anytime you need me, I am just a few minutes away. I am always available and respond promptly through Airbnb messages and in case of emergency or any kind of issue, by phone.
Other things to note
Unfortunately homelessness is a part of Venice Beach's unique character. My neighborhood and Pacific Ave are VERY SAFE but you will see some homeless people at the beach, they are mostly harmless. If you are not comfortable with this, Venice is probably NOT for you.
My neighborhood can also be noisy at night, so please keep this in mind if you are a light sleeper.
Marijuana is legal in California and while I do not smoke, and there is absolutely no smoking allowed in my home.... My neighbors do smoke as well as passersby, if you leave my apartment windows open the smell can travel inside.
Pets are allowed as long as they are not permitted on the furniture, and are crated when left in the apartment alone. Please lint roller any excess hair.
Smokers are welcome as long as there is no smoking inside of the apartment, please step outside or walk to the roof. Also please pick up your butts.
Wash your dishes.
Take out your trash, there are garbage cans located in the parking area.
Quick sweep before your departure.
I am super spontaneous, outgoing and fun. I grew up in Northern New Jersey, I travel as much as I can. I love meeting new people and trying new things.
