Are you a creative coming to LA for work? Writing a screenplay and need some peace and quiet? Or have you always just wanted a taste of the California Dream?
Live your LA fantasy in your sunny home away from home, in the heart of hip and trendy Venice, just off Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Immerse yourself in the Venice experience in this serene, modern home just blocks from the beach, Abbot Kinney, and the famed Venice Boardwalk.
Venice, a vibrant and culturally diverse neighborhood, preferred by actors, artists, creatives and musicians, is home to an eclectic and creative community. It is full of unique, independent shops and restaurants, the Venice Canals (with beautiful walk-streets along the water), and a Friday Farmers Market. Just a short walk from the house is the newly popular Rose Avenue with a diverse range of restaurants and boutiques including very popular Venice Beach Wines and Cafe Gratitude.
The area provides easy access to the 10 and 405 Freeways, the Santa Monica Mall, the Santa Monica Pier, Malibu, Downtown LA as well as many hiking trails in the local Santa Monica Mountains .
You can walk, or cycle to all of the new "see and be seen" Abbot Kinney cafes and boutiques, or enjoy a long bike ride along the bike path from Malibu to Hermosa Beach. Just a 10 minute walk up Rose Avenue is the popular Whole Foods supermarket and just 15 minute to Trader Joe's supermarket by car. Every third thursday of the month is the Venice Art Crawl and enjoy the people watching and food trucks at First Fridays on Abbot Kinney.

We want to mention that our next door neighbor is building a house, the construction is infrequent and most days there is not much noise. We are in communication with him and try to keep updated on the construction schedule, so please check with us about any concerns as we will do our best to let you know if there will be work during the days that you will be staying.
Most of the reviews that you see about the construction happened during a time that they had an earth mover and were digging for the foundations. There were some very noisy days during this time, but that work is complete.
I am a Santa Monica, CA native but spent time growing up in both CA and NY. I have my own Interior Design business here in Los Angeles and love living near the beach.
I enjoy spending time with my family, exploring on our bikes, hiking and traveling to see family in NY and Paris.
I love all things beautiful and try to see the beauty in simple and unexpected moments.
When I travel I like to experience a location as though I am a local and can walk a new city for hours taking in architecture and people.
As a host I want my guests to feel completely taken care of as if they have just arrived home.
