We traveled to LA for the first time with our two children ages 13 and 11 to see the sights. This rental was perfect for us. 2 bedrooms, very quaint, clean and comfortable. (No A/C but maybe that is typical in Venice. It wasn't a problem, though, as we were gone all day and the nights were cool and the ceiling fans help, a lot!) It is a cute little home with just the right stuff to make you feel like you are at home and not in a hotel. The furniture is minimal but no need if you are just there to be out of the house, anyway. The location is perfect, right off of Abbott Kinney Blvd and a few blocks to the beach. If you want to feel like a local, this is the place for you. We were able to park right outside or at least on the same block each day/night. Parking was not a problem.
Gave it 4 out of 5 stars because it could use a little TLC on the outside to make it look like other really cool homes in the neighborhood.
