What Past Guests Are Saying
Time for some R
This place was awesome. Super clean, hooked-up kitchen, most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, and a really nice place to return to after hanging out on the beach. Easily within walking distance of most everything you would want to do in Venice Beach. I was sad that I had only booked it for 3 days.
On the first floor, so really easy access for most people. A little tight for more than 3 people inside (only 1 king bed and a couch in the living room), so probably not the best for families. The parking was tight, and the backyard could use some love, but it seemed like maybe it was a work in progress.
I have already recommended this location to friends, and if I travel back to Venice Beach I will be staying here for sure.
perfect appartment, very convenient location and so nice owner
apartment is very nice (even if a bit dark), all you may need is available (kitchen, room, bathroom, …), TV’s in both living room and bedroom with a large collection of DVD’s, the location (very close to Venice beach, 3 mn walk) is perfect, easy access to santa monica.
Reserved parking is also Key
I would definitely recommend this place

When the trees get big they tend to block out some of the light... Time to trim them back again and Let in the Light! Thank you for letting me know.
Great Place to Stay
This was a very nice condo that was close to the beach. I stayed here with my two teenage kids, and it was great. The kitchen is modern and well-equipped. If I return to Venice Beach, I will rent this condo again.
Brand New, Tasteful, and Great Location
This unit is even nicer than the photos indicate. It is tastefully contemporary and it feels much larger than its stated 680 sq.ft.. Everything is new and you can tell that Ray, the owner, didn't skimp on the furnishings, bedding, and appliances. The layout worked well for our family of three. The bedroom is private and has a very comfy king bed and lots of closet space. My teenage son claims that the sofa bed in the living room was comfortable. Although we only made breakfasts, the kitchen is really well stocked if you want to cook a nice meal (and has a pleasant eating nook that seats four) . There are plenty of fluffy bath towels supplied as well as beach towels. Internet connection was great and the unit has two large flat screen TVs (though there's so much to do, we rarely used them).
The location is awesome: just 2 blocks up from the beach and steps away from Washington ave. where there are plenty of restaurants in walking distance. We rented bikes at Perry's, on the beach at the end of Washington, and enjoyed exploring Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Marina del Rey, and the Venice canals. I actually preferred this location to being right in the hub of Venice Beach, which is fun to visit, but a bit loud and frenzied as a place to stay. Ray's unit is on a quiet street and it is a very serene place to come home to after a day of sightseeing.
It was very easy booking through Ray. He is prompt in answering inquires and provides thorough instructions with respect to the unit and access. He lives in the unit upstairs so if you have any questions or concerns, he is easy to contact. The unit contains a large assortment of brochures about la attractions which is helpful. One thing Ray might consider is to prepare a small info guide with his own recommendations on restaurants, grocery stores, local market days, attractions, etc. (useful for guests and gives a personal touch).
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this rental, and if we visit la again (hope so) we will definitely book Ray's unit. Thank you!

Comfortable, easy and great apartment
This apartment was immaculate with every convenience you could think of. The owner provides high quality accommodation with many thoughtful additions. I would not hesitate in recommending this apartment.
Exactly what we wanted
Had a great stay here in February and would definitely recommend it. The unit itself suited us perfectly, the location was great and the unit really had absolutely everything we could possibly need. A few minutes drive to a late night supermarket was definitely useful for us and the location was great for going for a jog as well. Santa Monica is walkable from here, but the stroll takes a good while. As previous reviews have mentioned, the owner, Ray, is a great host and we found him always both helpful and happy. If we get the chance to travel to la again for a break, I'm pretty sure we'll want to stay here agin.
Excellent value for the price, helpful landlord, perfect locatio
I travelled alone, stayed for 5 nights in November.
As I do not like hotel rooms, I always try to find an apartment when travelling. This one was perhaps the best ever, and excellent value for the price.
"Best ever" because of the personal service before and during my stay. Among others.
I did not test the tub, but everything useful for me worked perfectly:
- the TVs (two of them, with sports channels and everything - and landlord Ray even helped me to find the channel with the match I wanted to see!!),
- the kitchen (with complementary coffee!),
- the Wi-Fi,
- the bed (bed linen 100 % Egyptian cotton!!!),
- the safe,
- the phone,
- the washing machine and the dryer (you do not have to bring your own washing detergent with you).
Ray even let me borrow his nephew's (if I remember right, it was his newphew's) hippie cruiser bike, (without which I wouldn't have made it to my destination on time one busy morning...)!!
And yes: it's just a five minute walk to the beach :)
The wooden floor and the furniture, the decoration etc. is made to please anyone who likes the Northern European style.
P.S. I did not notice until now: the apartment seems to be closest to Marina del Rey and Venice, not Santa Monica, according to Google maps. It did not bother me, though, as I chose this one because of the recommendations and the location - by looking at the map.
What a great place
Ray the owner has made this a top quality unit with all the fine furniture and finishes.
No detail is left out, from the comfy bed to soft towels fully appointed kitchen. This place has the quality of a five star hotel. Great location, walk to the beach and restaurants.
The only problem and I am sure Ray will address it is. The next door neighbor must be afraid of the dark... They left their bathroom light on all night and since the buildings are very close and our bedroom window is only three feet from their bathroom window, we had a bright light shining in our bedroom all night.
Great place to spend some time
We stayed here for 4 nights. There were 3 adults and a 3-year old in our party. The place was great for what we needed. It's only minutes walk away from restaurants and the beach. The place itself has been really tastefully funished and Ray has thought of everything...literally! The kitchen is great to cook in and has pretty much every gadget you need, there's a cute patio and BBQ. The double bedroom has a great comfortable bed and plenty of storage space.
The only downside for us was that the sofabed was really just an occasional bed - we ended up sharing the lux bedroom by having 2 nights on the sofa and 2 nights in the bed as it didn't seem fair. Also, although Ray does have a cleaner and it was definately clean - personally I think she does him a dis-service as we all had really dirty feet from walking about when we'd really just got there and the oven hadn't been cleaned from the last occupants. This isn't a reflection on Ray however as everything he's done, he's done really well and he wouldn't really know that his cleaner could be doing a better job unless he'd walked about barefoot.
All in all this is a great place and we would definately stay here again.

Thank you for letting me know about the floors and oven.
I will make sure that these 2 items are not over looked in the future.
Perfect location, two steps to the beach. Tastefully furnished and very comfortable apartment.
Landlord Ray was very friendly and really helpful. In the apartment everything is provided for your convenience Very clean.
Have a nice patio where you can dine, there lives a squirrel!
Wonderfull house, great location,very conforttable and full equiped with everything you need,and the ownwer great person and so helpfull.
A complete jewel
Just spent a wonderful weekend in MDR and they stay would not have been complete had it not been for this awesome condo and the owner Ray. The rental unit itself was clean, well maintained with updated furnishings (stainless steel appliances, spa tub, leather couch, extra thread count sheets-even "the good" toilet paper!) and artwork throughout.
The owner, Ray, really thought of everything and every detail was accounted for (blanket for the beach and even provided 2% milk for my morning coffee!).
The unit has a "garden apartment" feel to it and despite being just a short stroll to the more busy area of Washington Square the place was super quiet and private too.
Didn't sleep on the pullout leather couch but the king size bed was super comfortable.
The lighting is mostly on dimmers and it's little touches like that-that really make the difference.
