2 bed 2 bath gated house with large peaceful yard and outdoor brick fireplace, in a private Westside neighborhood off Venice Boulevard. Take one of our courtesy bikes to the beach or one of the top restaurants, cafes, or bars in the surrounding neighborhoods.

The space

2 bed 2 bath single family home, 1177 sqft, that feels like a peaceful sanctuary in a hidden garden away from the city.

Bohemian chic decor, wood floors throughout, granite countertops, light and bright layout with a flow from the living room out into the yard that is great for entertaining.
Chefs will swoon over the Viking stove and upgraded appliances to cook your meals. The outdoor brick fireplace is perfect to grill some burgers or warm yourself by a romantic fire.

You may want to dine outside in our perfect So Cal weather under the grapevine lattice amidst the quiet, wraparound, lush yard. Or you may want to enjoy the neighborhood like a local and take one of four courtesy bikes available down to the beach or surrounding restaurants. Santa Monica Pier has a great summer concert series to go sit on the sand with a picnic basket and blanket! Beach towels are provided for up to six people. :)

Two queen beds and two full baths are inside home. Bath towels, shampoo, conditioner and soaps are provided for you in each bathroom. Each bedroom has completely empty closets with felt hangers provided. There are also beautiful dressers empty and ready for your folded clothes or shoes. There are full length mirrors in each room to make getting ready easy! (Ladies we all know how frustrating it can be to get ready without full length mirrors!) The couches inside the home are also extremely comfortable for sleeping if you have additional guests. Extra pillows, sheets and blankets are all provided.

Pet friendly if you'd like to bring your furry loved ones. Please just remember this is our home so please treat it with love and respect as we do.

Please help yourself to our homegrown garden fruits! We have a fig tree in the backyard and a large grapevine along the side of the house wrapping all the way to the front yard! A gardener comes every Tuesday to keep the garden watered and yard clean.

Central A/C and heat in main house, although the ocean breeze keeps the house lovely if you leave windows or doors open. Black out drapes have just been added to those rooms for a peaceful, refreshing night sleep!

Drip and press coffee makers available.

Flat screen television with connection to Apple TV. You can download the remote to your iPhone and/or cast from your phone or computer to play on the TV what is playing on your devices.

Free and easy parking! We recommend parking in front of the home or on our private street as there is no street sweeping! (LA miracle)

4 courtesy bikes are available for you to enjoy living like a local! Venice Beach is a 15 min bike ride away. Culver City and Mar Vista are filled with LA's top restaurants and bars, walking distance or a quick bike ride from our home.

Just off Venice Boulevard, west of 405 freeway
10 min from Venice Pier and Santa Monica
15 min from LAX
25 min from Hollywood, Beverly Hills, UCLA, LACMA, and The Grove

Kim is an excellent host! Communication was great before and during our stay. Her home was very nice and secluded but still close to everything. Venice beach is about 15-20min depending on traffic. It was a Great place for our family vacation, we had everything we needed there. The outside area is great, there is a hammock, fire place, rocking chair, etc. Kitchen is well stocked, we cooked breakfast and dinner at this home. Showers are great too! The tv with Apple Tv and Netflix/ Hulu was a great addition, we watched movies and relax. Overall it was a great stay and we would stay there again. Thank you Kim for hosting us!
