Lovely Haven

June 24, 2013

We had just come from three nights in Disney Hotel, with four of us in one room, so we were delighted to move into Venice and spread out. We found everything we needed, including fantastic recommendations from Adrian for buying food and restaurants. We stayed from 27 December to 3 January and the location was perfect. The apartment was spacious and comfortable and we were able to shop and wash. We walked down to he beach several times - rode bikes up to the pier, had breakfast and went out for drinks/dinner (Lorillee our great babysitter was a real find). We felt very safe and secure and our hire car was safely secured in the garage each night. Thank you Adrian, you were very accommodating, easy to deal with and helpful. Have already recommended you to others, but thought I should finally record my great satisfaction

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much, Catherine. I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us!

Great time in Venice

Very conveniently located and cosy appartment with private parking in a very quiet neighbourhood just one hundred steps behind the beach. Very close acces to grocery shopping and resturants in the neighbourhood. We really appreciated the comfort of this very clear and bright appartment.

Comfortable stay in great location

March 20, 2012

I stayed in feb 2012 with my Mum and Dad who are in their late 60s. The apartment was lovely, spotlessly clean with lovely comfy beds and a comfy sofa too. There were lovely fresh flowers to greet us and adrian made us feel very welcome and gave us some helpful tips about the area. The apartment is a couple of minutes walk to Venice beach and all beach stuff is provided. The beach itself is beautiful - miles of golden sand. The promenade is very busy at the weekends, lots of "characters",but a lot quieter during the week. It's a very pleasant walk to Santa Monica pier and to the farmer's market. There's loads to see and do in the area, and the main tour companies can just pick you up from a nearby hotel if you want to do a tour. We did the all day Universal Studios tour with Starline and the return bus transfer was free! All in all we had a great time and can highly recommend this apartment.

We stayed in the Artist's loft for a week and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It has very good location to the beach and to sine lovely local shops. It has all the facility and we just felt like at home. We have the rooftop for relaxation. We would love to be back there again

Stylish, great landlady in a convenient location

July 5, 2011

The house was clean and set up well when we arrived with the flowers in kitchen. Adrian was very nice and accommodating to allow us to sleep 8 folks, which worked really well with the extra air mattress. Location was nice where it really was a block from Venice beach, and had a 2 car garage to store our cars for all other touristy activities. The neighbors are VERY sensitive to noise as we just talked normal at night (windows were partly open that night though), and they swung by to ask us to be more quiet. Also, the whole house had only 1 shower -> the soaking tub doesn't have a shower, so we had to work out a shower schedule since there were so many of us. Overall, the house was what we needed and we were very pleased with it.
