Please inquire about which room is available and or if you would like to rent out the other bedroom. I also have 2 rentals located just across the street if this one is not available for your travel dates. Your host resides in the third bedroom but works a lot and is rarely home. EVERYTHING is as PRISTINE as a DELUXE B&B HOTEL SUITE so be prepared to be fully pampered as if you were staying in one (for a fraction of the cost!). The home is very clean, well designed and comfy. You will also receive a WELCOME KIT w/ home operation information, maps, restaurant suggestions, entertainment, sightseeing info and more.....

It has a tropical, bamboo style design with vintage surf pictures, old cameras and books to enjoy. The bedroom is VERY quiet with double pain new windows and sound proof door.

Most guests tell me they wish they didn't spend the money renting a car. There is also a bus stop just a few blocks away that will take you into Hollywood.

My son and I stayed here for the first 4 nights of our trip to the States. This was my first experience booking accommodation from overseas before arriving. It all went smoothly and Elizabeth was a fantastic host. The location was superb, literally on the beach. An easy walk to Venice too. I would certainly stay again and recommend it to anyone else.

Sight unseen but by photos, exceptional description, accurate reviews, we rented this apartment for 6 nights over Thanksgiving week. Here is a list of the most important attributes from our experience: a) Excellent, gracious, helpful, very experienced hostess, Aunt Betty b) Homey, comfortable, quiet, clean (daily cleaner), well appointed apartment c) Private TV's, large den TV, internet access d) Proximity to good restaurants; short walk, 5 minutes, to several good options e) Crystal clear apartment instructions, local recommended restaurant and services f) Beachfront covered concrete patio, plus sand patio, facing West and walk-out to the beach g) Parking at the apartment h) Quiet, private location 3 blocks from Venice Beach pier and Washington Ave. I) First floor private room, shared den and fully stocked kitchen j) Free accessories: 2 bicycles, 2 beach chairs, several surf and boogie boards, wet suits k) Short walk to Starbucks, Terrace Café (super breakfast till 2pm), Nick's market (small but had everything we were seeking) Overall: Very comfortable apartment in every respect. We were not once inconvenienced by an upstairs renter, or our resident hostess in the two upstairs bedrooms relative to the shared den, patios, or kitchen. Far better option than any random hotel room and less expensive. Price is competitive and very reasonable compared to other nearby rental options but far better considering the above attributes.

We have stayed at several vacation rentals in the area and this was by far our favorite place! The bamboo bedroom with private bath was perfect for us and the location is absolutely fantastic. Elizabeth is such an awesome host and we were fortunate to have her around during our stay. We stayed for a week and it went by too quickly! The bikes and boogie boards were fun to use. Thanks Elizabeth for a great experience!

This was the first time I had rented a vacation place since using a wheelchair. Elizabeth was a very thoughtful host. Once she knew what was needed she worked very hard to make the place handicap accessible. There are several things that need to be permanently done to make it truly accessible. That being said, I thought the location was great. Plenty of good restaurants and bars. The beach and the view from the pier and the house are fantastic. I use a motorized wheelchair and got around easily on my own. Of course, I didn't try going on the beach in my chair but I learned that there are beach wheelchairs with huge tires designed to go in the sand...maybe next time!

It was an incredible stay at the beach. Elizabeth is such a lovely woman, we got a very warm welcome and she was always there for us. The beach house is a paradise, you immediately feel at home; it is beautifully furnitured and you can see and hear the ocean even from out the kitchen. I would highly recommend this place and we will hopefully be back next year.

My daughter and myself rented a room at Aunt Bettys. We had the first floor unit that does not have ocean view but easier access to kitchen and livingroom. Safe area, beautiful beach and close to everything. Room can use some updating, but was very clean.

I have stayed in this property already twice and I cannot stop keep wanting to go back! It has become my little paradise, away from work, business. I first visited last summer and then returned on Christmas. Literally a few steps from the sand, one can only enjoy the early mornings, the late sunsets, the amazing waves and the pure calmness that exists around.
