“It was like visiting your rich buddy's private pad at a very good location”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Very well appointed. Equipment that you would love to have in your own home. Well positioned for you to become part of the show around Venice beach for a fleeting second. Thank goodness for reserved parking and excellent security.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 6 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The unit was clean, private and roomy for two adults. The owner was friendly and helpful and put a lot of thought into making this a luxury property with a fully stocked high end kitchen and extremely comfortable bedding. There was onsite laundry facilities complete with detergent and fabric softener. The unit also had great security with unique keyless entry. As an added bonus there was reserved onsite parking so you didn't have to fight for a space on the street. Best of all, the location was approx. one block from the beautiful Venice beach. We would stay here again anytime and highly recommend it for travelers to the LA area.

The Couch in the living room is a very comfortable pull out Queen sleeper so unit sleeps 4, there is also a single Aero Bed if needed.
Parking space fits a Full Size car, but might be a bit tight for a larger vehicle. And yes the Garden is a bit of a work in progress, But there is a deck in the back yard with Dining table & 6 Chairs.

Reviewed 2 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

apartment is very nice (even if a bit dark), all you may need is available (kitchen, room, bathroom, …), TV’s in both living room and bedroom with a large collection of DVD’s, the location (very close to Venice beach, 3 mn walk) is perfect, easy access to santa monica.
Reserved parking is also Key
I would definitely recommend this place

When the trees get big they tend to block out some of the light... Time to trim them back again and Let in the Light! Thank you for letting me know.

“Brand New, Tasteful, and Great Location”
Reviewed 31 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This unit is even nicer than the photos indicate. It is tastefully contemporary and it feels much larger than its stated 680 sq.ft.. Everything is new and you can tell that Ray, the owner, didn't skimp on the furnishings, bedding, and appliances. The layout worked well for our family of three. The bedroom is private and has a very comfy king bed and lots of closet space. My teenage son claims that the sofa bed in the living room was comfortable. Although we only made breakfasts, the kitchen is really well stocked if you want to cook a nice meal (and has a pleasant eating nook that seats four) . There are plenty of fluffy bath towels supplied as well as beach towels. Internet connection was great and the unit has two large flat screen TVs (though there's so much to do, we rarely used them).
The location is awesome: just 2 blocks up from the beach and steps away from Washington Ave. where there are plenty of restaurants in walking distance. We rented bikes at Perry's, on the beach at the end of Washington, and enjoyed exploring Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Marina del Rey, and the Venice canals. I actually preferred this location to being right in the hub of Venice Beach, which is fun to visit, but a bit loud and frenzied as a place to stay. Ray's unit is on a quiet street and it is a very serene place to come home to after a day of sightseeing.
It was very easy booking through Ray. He is prompt in answering inquires and provides thorough instructions with respect to the unit and access. He lives in the unit upstairs so if you have any questions or concerns, he is easy to contact. The unit contains a large assortment of brochures about LA attractions which is helpful. One thing Ray might consider is to prepare a small info guide with his own recommendations on restaurants, grocery stores, local market days, attractions, etc. (useful for guests and gives a personal touch).
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this rental, and if we visit LA again (hope so) we will definitely book Ray's unit. Thank you!
