have NEVER written a negative review in my life, but this may be the first. There are two units available on this property. An upper and lower. I knew that the upper unit was ‘not for us’, having stayed there before. We wanted larger eating/ cooking environment and comfort…

Response from John & Mark:
Gosh.....when they tried to blackmail us into giving them their money back or they'd write a negative review, we balked. This is all a bunch of codswallop i.e. complete and utter nonsense. PLEASE READ THE REVIEWS OF OTHERS. The couch is Italian leather, real leather, not "leatherette": we have spent many an afternoon relaxing on it. It's really comfy. No need to dare us! We have original art on the walls, although after reading this review, we note that one original piece of art in the bedroom has been stolen. Perhaps ........? The toilet handle is not broken, or cracked. The dining table is a Giantino masterpiece, where all the seats fit under the table in a circle. The couch and chairs are cleaned thoroughly after every visitor, as is the rest of the cottage. We took the bench out of the bedroom after the last couple wanted more space. Can't win them all. The windows have recessed blinds, they just didn't know how to operate them I guess, and never asked. I'm not sure how the ceiling fan/light can be unusable even if it were filthy, which it is not. The exterior might be unkempt to some, to others, it's bohemian - surfboards, bikes, a budha, bamboo, although the drought has had us change our landscaping plan to eliminate grass except in one area. The rug in the unit was brand new before they moved in. Who stained it? Guess who. The cottage was painted 4 months before they stayed. The bathroom is clean and tidy, although the calk on the base of the tub has separated, so we'll fix that. Before this elderly couple, all of our guests have loved staying. I could go on and on. But really, if as they write, they didn't want to stay here before they booked, then why did they book? Worse still, they paid the least we've ever offered the cottage out for. Amazing. I feel sad that people can write negative reviews but remain unaccountable. Curiously, they never said a word while they were there. Not one word.

Our second stay in John and Mark's house on Westminster Avenue, this time on the upper floor, was equally congenial to the first. This is a great location for doing the Abbott Kinney/Venice/Marina del Rey area, and the apartment is wonderfully comfortable and relaxing. The w…

This place was in the perfect location, just a few blocks away all kinds of shops, restaurants and the beach. The place was nice, very comfortable bed and pillows. Easy check-in.

Great location and comfortable apartment! Had a little issue with the space being ready for check in, but was able to get in touch with the hosts relatively quickly to get it sorted out.

Perfect location if you need to be in the Venice area, and great size for one person or a couple. Close to Abbot Kinney but on a very quiet street. Full kitchen. Owners very friendly and responsive when contacted. Overall great deal.

I really enjoyed my stay, at John and Mark’s Abbot Kinney cottage. The location was great, quiet, and it was an amazing value! I was in Venice, for a two week, intensive training, and this place was perfect, for my needs. You are right next to all the shops along Abbot Kinney, wi…
