Cute & cozy 3 bedroom, single story house (1150sqft) surrounded by lovely garden on a lot with another detached house. Wifi speed is 50Mbps. Beach is 10min by bike. Borrow our bikes for free and explore Venice. Watch movies or play games on our 9ft x 5ft Epson projector (our TV). Great for friends, families, adventurers, business travelers, & corporate retreats. One parking spot. Shares middle yard where two friendly husky dogs live (you can avoid them by using the front entrance if you want).
This is the entire single story house in a residential neighborhood 10min biking distance to Venice Beach. We have airbnb'd one of the rooms in it and you can check out the 5-star reviews we've received for that listing. I'm traveling over the summer so we've decided to Airbnb the complete house through the end of August when I return. Our father lives in the house next door. Please treat our home as you would a relative's.
We have a great front yard with flowers and fruit trees. We have one onsite parking spot for you. Instead of a TV we have a really nice Epson projector connected to a ROKU (so you can watch Netflix or cast from YouTube to it), our Xbox 360 (that can play DVDs & has 4 controllers), or connect it to your PC or Mac to display movies across a complete wall of the living room (9ft wide by 5 ft tall). Our ROKU includes access to HBO and Sling TV for sports and other TV channels. We can supply you with bikes to use during your stay and have five boogie boards you can use too. Abbott Kinney is only 15 minutes by foot along some scenic walk streets nearby.
Front yard is yours to enjoy with the fruit & flower garden. If you want to try some fruit please ask us first as some we may want to harvest (takes a lot of effort to make those fruits grow) while others we have too many of (currently too many plums to eat ourselves). We do have a gardener who maintains the yard.
The side yard between your house and the neighbors has the two dogs that are friendly, one is shy so tends to avoid new people. The side yard is mostly off access for you unless there is an emergency and you need to exit through the side yard gate. For the most part though please use the front entrance door for access.
The neighbor can help out occasionally if there is an issue. I can also help out via phone and sometimes in person (Sometimes I stay at the house next door otherwise I'm traveling).
We can speak fluent German, French, & Spanish in addition to English.
- Fireplace is not functional so please do not use it
- No Loud Music/Noise between 10pm-8am
- Front yard is yours to use but please do not eat the fruit off the fruit trees without prior permission
- There is a side yard between this house and the one adjacent to it. The neighbor uses this side yard for his two dogs and his garden and prefers guests to just use the front yard and not the side yard except for emergencies.
I'm from Rochester, NY and was on the ski team there! I did my undergrad at UC Berkeley in business administration and now I live in Venice Beach, CA.
I liked reading, rollerblading, salsa dancing & traveling.
Adventurous anecdote - Recently I went on a 5 week cycling tour trip with my sister, Kira, through New Zealand. Visited Hobbiton (of course!), climbed volcanoes, white water rafted, admired lakes, waterfalls, the country side (sooo many sheep), and a very strange Steampunk museum.
My sister works at a boxing gym, Box n' Burn, in Santa Monica. For exercise I prefer Rollerblading from here to the Santa Monica pier by going along the bike path along Venice beach. I go to a salsa class every Thursday with my girlfriend and it's open to anyone if you want to join us.
We have two outside dogs - one is a Siberian Husky and the other is a Husky mix - both are friendly and are kept in the back yard so you can always enter the front if you don't want to meet them.
