315- 4 Beach Cottage

Great Light and an outstanding cool ocean breeze fill this quaint cottage which is located only 3 short blocks to the famous Venice Beach! Professionally designed one bedroom, one bath with large windows to let in the beautiful California sunshine! Located on the ground floor. Organized closets make it easy to maximize space and take a soak in the beautifully done bathroom after a day at the beach!

We have other properties with many great reviews and this is a new unit, just listed! I'm sure we will have many reviews soon!

Cottage includes a small patio with chairs to enjoy the sunshine and to have a nice glass of wine at the end of the day.

The bathroom is beautiful with room for toiletries. The floor is designed with pebble tile to have a better beach feel-

Entertainment: features include 45" plasma tv, Sony Blue ray player, bar area for dinning or perfect for friendly dinner parties!

The cottage is set back from the street and located on a tree lined drive which has parking in the back for one car. Most people with larger cars have found it a little difficult to drive and back out of the space, but we have a Toyota Highlander which fits perfectly fine. There is street parking available which is still close to the front door if you choose not to park in the parking area.

We also provide a coin operated washer and dryer for you to use if needed.

Fully Furnished with a beautiful queen sleeper couch, designer furniture, queen bed, stove, fridge, dishwasher, microwave, pots and pans, and so much more.
We provide internet and cable t.v.
Also provided are all linens including towels, extra blankets and sheets.

There is no where in the world like Venice, and we are positive you will have many memories from your stay to cherish forever.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have before/during/and after your stay so let us know what you need and we will do our best to help.

Absolutely NO smoking is allowed in the apartment and no pets are allowed to stay here. We love your furry friends, but want to make the apartment available to all, and some people are allergic to your pets.

Due to the design of the cottage when it was originally built it shares a wall with another cottage. Please keep in mind that we have installed soundproofing, however, if you are a light sleeper the cottage might not be the best fit for you. We have done our best to keep the integrity of the original design and have the original windows there also which are single pane.

Most guests find it stunning and have come back many times. We just want you to have a pleasurable experience and so you know all of your options up front.

This cottage is located off of the street, down a tree lined drive so you could pass it easily if you are not paying attention. Use a map on your phone/internet to get to the address (315 North Venice Blvd.) and when you get close you will see that you will be coming down North Venice Blvd which is a one way street- this means you cannot just flip a u-turn if you pass it, you will have to go all the way back around!
When you are on Venice, you will pass a street called Dell- we are located on the right hand side under a white arch which reads Dolphin Court and has jasmine vines growing on it. You will drive down between the cottages on a tree lined drive (yes, your car will fit :)- We can fit our Toyota highlander with a foot on each side) all the way to the back which is where you will park and you should park in stall 5 on the far West side! It can be a bit tight but if you let your guests out first we should have no problems. You will have to back out of the tree lined drive as there is not space to turn around. Unit 4 is on the East side and you should use the code we email you to enter. put in the code and turn the lock to the left to unlock it. To lock the door, put in the code again and turn it like a dead bolt to open and close 🙂

We very much enjoyed our stay
and absolutely recommend this place. The one-bedroom cottage is beautifully decorated, very clean, and has everything you'll need. The host was fairly hands-off but left detailed instructions so we had no trouble. As others have mentioned, the parking is indeed very tight, especially for this cottage as it's the parking spot on the far left. I had a Mazda 2 (a very compact car) and was very glad that I didn't rent anything bigger. Overall, we had a great experience and definitely recommend this place! Thank you!

APARTMENT -- Lovely; it was clean and exactly as pictured in photographs. It was cozy for four (I wouldn't try to squeeze in more), although not very private, as the walls are thin and the bathroom is only accessible through the bedroom. The second "bed" is a comfy pull out couch, but the skylight makes the front room where it is located very bright in the morning. LOCATION/TRANSPORTATION -- The apt itself was just a minute walk from the Venice Beach boardwalk, about 15 minutes to Santa Monica, and about 30 minutes to downtown/Hollywood (without traffic). Personally, I didn't get the appeal of Abbott Kinney Blvd, and little was open before 11 on Sat AM. Venice Beach boardwalk on Saturday AM reminded me of a NYC subway terminal - crowded with tourists, freaks (literally, (website hidden) "venice beach freakshow"), and panhandlers, although a photo op with Lisa the lazy dog is a must. I wouldn't feel comfortable walking the streets of Venice alone (or even with another woman, really) after dark, although the little cottage is set back off the road and felt rather safe. Neighbors were very friendly and parking was a huge plus, although a tight fit for our compact car. Traffic on N. Venice Blvd on Saturday was horrible all day! There were no bikes available as the posting and previous guests had suggested, so that was a bit of a let down. Once we were parked we used Uber services to get anywhere that was not within walking distance to avoid taking the car in and out. NEARBY FOOD/BEV/SNACKS -- There's no lack of options! We didn't cook at the apt, but it seemed to be well stocked had we chosen to do so. The corner bodega just a block or two towards the beach was vital for ice, snacks, beer, and toilet paper, but the cashier would only give me $2 in quarters, and the on-site washer/dryer cost $1.25 for each load, so bring quarters if you plan to use them. We hit happy hour for drinks and sushi at Canal Club down the street, and it was incredible! On Sunday night we wanted to get a late night snack at James' Beach, but didn't realize they only do late night fare Thurs-Sat. French toast at Danny's on Winward Ave was very good and the we loved the wall murals there. We ordered pizza and Thai food from Eat24 twice, and the drivers had no issue finding the apt. My brother said one of the best things he had the whole trip was a Mexican corn on the cob he got from a vendor walking up/down the beach. HOST -- We very much appreciated the ease of the flexible check-in and out, but had zero contact with the host, despite my attempt to contact her via text regarding the lack of bikes. I didn't pursue it, as it ultimately wasn't a big deal, but would have appreciated a little more responsiveness/proactive communication regarding check-in on her...

LA was our last stop during our west coast round trip. The beach cottage is in a great location, not more then 5 minutes walking to the venice beach.
A beautiful and cozy equipped cottage with furnishing and fitting.
We would visit this apartment at anytime.

Vores vært Niesja, var super hurtig med at svare tilbage, og der var styr på sagerne med hensyn til parkeringsmuligheder, udlevering af nøgle etc.
Stedet er småt, men godt. Der er hvad man skal bruge, dog var det lidt sparsomt med glas, tallerkner og bestik - der skulle vaskes op lidt rigeligt i løbet af en (website hidden) boede 4 personer, 2 voksne og 2 store børn, og det var huset lidt for lille til i det lange løb - en uge er fint, men ikke længere tid.
Beliggenheden er til gengæld formidabel - max 5 minutters gang og man står på Venice Beach - lige ved siden af Muscle Beach! Perfekt placering, hvis man bare vil ligge på stranden, og nyde freakshowet på Venice Beach. Nabolaget mangler intet - kun et regulært, ordentligt supermarked - udover denne mangel, så er det en super beliggenhed!-))

Her place was very clean and I loved the decor. It was in great walking distance to Abbot Kinney and the beach. It is great for a couples getaway. The neighbors were all very nice.

A little gem of a cottage in a perfect location within a few blocks of the beach, Abbott Kinney and the canals. It is beautifully renovated, spacious and comfortable. Also, a parking space is included which is coveted in this beach area. Our teenage girls loved walking to their surf lessons from the cottage and sending pics of the "cool" cottage they were staying in at Venice Beach. Niesja was very accommodating and gracious. We would definitely stay here again!

Michael

Niesja was very responsive to our questions and very gracious in letting us drop our luggage before her cleaners had left. As other reviewers have noted, the location is great, although the apartment can be a little noisy.

The white curtains, while very attractive, let in a lot of light. We are used to sleeping in the dark, so hung a blanket over the window to reduce the light.

Fantastic place. Great communication all self check-in so no hassles and easy check out. A little small but no different than description. The finishings are Gorgeous. So luxurious. It's in a nice quiet location 3 blocks from boardwalk and sand. The parking is TIGHT! lol. Rent a small car. But having parking is a huge luxury in Venice. Location is truly fantastic though. Close to Abbott Kenney (or whatever it's called!) the main shopping Street. And tonnes of great bars and restaurants nearby.

My friend and I had a wonderful stay at this cozy beach cottage. Parking in the back was easy and there was plenty of available street parking for my friend as well. We enjoyed the convenience to the beach and dining options. The cottage is exactly as portrayed in the images, and was very clean and tidy upon arrival. The living room made for a very relaxing movie night and the bed was very comfortable. Niesja was quick to respond to our inquiries prior to and during the stay. We most certainly will consider staying here again.

Jeena

We did not meet Niesja in person, but did not have any issue at getting the key to the cottage or during the stay.

This cottage is so cutely decorated, and all my girlfriends and I had a fantastic stay. The beach is very close, and the neighborhood feels safe and friendly. It's about $30 cab ride from LAX, and there are so many things to do nearby, so even if you're not renting a car, this place is awesome. The sofa bed was also very comfortable. I recommend this place so much!

The Good - Very modern, very clean, excellent location, nice neighbors. Perfect size for 2-3, a little tight for 4.

The Bad - Very bright in the mornings with no way to make the room darker.

Geoffrey

A great, clean spot with nice neighbors. The whole experience was seamless.

Cat & Rico

This is a very nice space. I didn't meet the host but everything was acceptable. Parking however in the dedicated space was extremely tough even for my compact car. It was quiet even though it was a 4th of July weekend.

We spent one night in this cute little cottage off of Venice Blvd just a few short blocks from the beach. The directions were excellent and we easily found it, even though it is tucked away on a small, tree-lined driveway. The one bedroom cottage was a bit tight for our family of 4 but the pull out couch made it workable. It would be ideal for a couple, with a comfortable living area and kitchen and a separate bedroom/bath. The entire place was clean and new (it looked like it had been recently renovated) and was extremely nicely decorated. It really does feel like a home.

For a longer stay it would have felt cramped for the four of us but it was perfect for one night and very conveniently located for everything we wanted to do in West LA and Santa Monica. If you want a cute cottage near the beach, this is a great deal.
