We stayed with our young daughter in the home and beautiful garden. The house is spacious for a party of three, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The location is super close (one block) from Abbot Kinney AND very quiet. Private parking in the yard at the house took away the hassle of street parking. Communication before during and after our stay with Michael was always superfast, kind and with all required information. As we were arriving after 18+ hours of travel the provided food and drinks in the fridge were very welcome. We had a very good time in Venice. Thank you very much.

We stayed at Michael’s house in Venice for four days and wish we could have stayed longer. We just loved the house and the garden and the area (just one block from Abbot Kinney Boulevard). The house is spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. It has a good vibe. My husband and I loved our morning jogs in Venice Beach and hip restaurants at Abbot Kinney. We had such a lovely time! Michael was friendly and helpful host.

Easily one of the best AirBnB experiences I’ve had. Michael met me upon check-in despite my later-than-expected arrival to let me in and show me around. He even generously got me started with coffee, milk, fruit, and a few groceries for morning – much appreciated after several days travel. Not to mention the wine and fresh flowers. His home was even better than expected, the photographs barely doing justice to the airy interior, renovated kitchen, and spacious and very private back yard. Beach towels, bikes, and a BBQ made for the full summer experience. The house is perfectly situated just off Abbott Kinney – a short walk to shopping, coffee shops, restaurants, and the beach. Michael was incredibly friendly and made sure I had everything I needed for a comfortable stay – I just wish it could have been longer. I would most definitely stay here again!

Michael's Venice Retreat is absolutely wonderful! We absolutely loved it! It was simply perfect, the house is lovely, the location right off Abbott Kinney is ideal for exploring Venice by bike. And Michael is an exceptionally great host. He goes above and beyond, left us with fresh flowers, fresh fruit and even stocked up the fridge! We had a wonderful vacation and hope to enjoy Michael's place again soon!

I stayed here with my parents for one week and it was the perfect choice! A 10 second walk to Abbot Kinney, the house is perfectly situated to enjoy all of the great restaurants and shops and is a less than 15 minute walk to Venice Beach. Parking is also included which is a huge bonus for the neighborhood. The house is even lovelier in person than in the photos! Inside it's clean, airy, modern and everything from the furniture to the fixtures is top of the line. Loved making use of the outdoor areas; two great patios and the bbq grill. Was happy to have two separate bathrooms, a washer/dryer and dishwasher. Michael was a fantastic host. He was there to meet me and show me around the house when I checked in. He lives 5 minutes away and was available by phone or to stop by in person if we needed anything. The house was filled with fresh flowers and Michael had wine, beer, bagels, cream cheese, milk, cereal, hummus, amazing fruit and more when we arrived. Having used airbnb several times he really went above and beyond as a host. Can't recommend this place enough and would absolutely rent it again!

Great property right off Abbott Kinney is appropriately named, "Venice Retreat." Parking, bikes, backyard, plenty of space, and within walking distance of shops, beach, and restaurants. Michael Halberg, host, was always available by texting and accommodated a late arrival of 9:00 pm by meeting us in person with keys and a quick tour of home and property. He was the perfect host, and we will definitely inquire about "Venice Retreat" the next time we are in town.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Michael's house. It's the perfect place to stay if you're visiting Venice. It's just 2 short blocks off Abbott Kinney and all the great shops and restaurants. Michael very kindly provided bicycles for our use so getting to the beach was a breeze and there's simply no better way to get around Venice. The house is spacious and comfortable and very clean. We felt at hone right away. Our 3 yr old especially loved the huge back yard and the trampoline. Michael is a great host as well. He was there to meet us when we arrived and made himself available during our stay if we needed anything. We look forward to staying there again on our next trip to Venice.

I'm the father of a 10 year old and work in television post-production. I love the outdoors and when I can find the time I'm usually mountain biking, hiking in the local mountains or at the beach. I consider myself fortunate to live in a place with almost perfect weather and easy access to the best Southern California has to offer!
