What Past Guests Are Saying
Architectural living close to Venice Beach
We felt very welcome when we arrived, little things like a filled fridge & coffee after a long flight can make a big difference. The house itself has a small floorspace, but it is so well designed and full of light that it seems a lot larger then it really is. The photos on tripadvisor don't do it justice. You can sense it is a well thought-out house. Also, the location is perfect: in a very quiet suburban area yet still close to Venice Beach. Jane & Kirsten, you were very helpful and are very hospitable. Thank you.
A creative and adventurous free spirit!

A creative artistic and uplifting environment with wonderful ame
what a treat to stay in our very own artist loft for two weeks while voting for the academy awards. With the beautiful skylights creating a light airy space all through the day and the areas for sleeping eating and relaxing divided off in a nice way we felt totally relaxed. Our son and his girlfriend who live nearby would stop by often when we were there because they just enjoyed the space! The amenities such as CD player,TV, were very accessible and they had many wonderful CDs of,which to listen...plus many wonderful books to peruse.
Easy parking and abbott kinney is a wonderful area to shop and eat and we even took the available bikes to the canals. The proximity to everything could not be better. We liked this area of venice so much better than the Venice beach...(it's close enough) There was only one complaint and that was that the kitchen sink is too small but I solved the problem by bringing a large plastic bowl (get one at the 99 cent store nearby)and that worked fine. We hated to leave and will be back again next year!!

Jane, thanks again for your hospitality.
Sarah and I would love to come again sometime as a special treat. Your loft is beautiful - so spacious and comfortable. It's a real home and we appreciated having all the little extras. It was great to use the bikes to cruise to the pier and the beach. Your street is sheltered and peaceful. The neighbours are smiling and friendly. You have a vast and varied CD and book collection. It really is an oasis. We'll tell our friends.

Thanks, John. It was a great pleasure to have you stay at my place!
Hard to describe in words the wonderful feel of this place...it truly is a gem. It is close enough to the beach and canals to bike to, yet far enough away for tranquilty when needed. Beautifully decorated, with wonderful natural light also. The owner was very sweet and helpful..you really couldn't ask for a nicer place.
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. Jane was very nice and welcoming, and the house itself was exactly how I imagined a Venice home to be - architecturally stunning, light and airy, surrounded by a lush tropical garden. Great interior decor too - lots of interesting paintings on the walls! This house has none of that hoaky vacation rental feel - It's all done very tastefully and stylishly. It was the perfect backdrop our vacation, a beautiful retreat to come back to at the end of long, beach-filled days. I would

Beautiful, light, very elegantly decorated, and most of all, comfortable. Everything i wanted in a holiday hideaway. Really close to Venice Beach, which was fun. Loads of great shops nearby too. Coming from London, where you pay stupidly high prices for dingy holes, I was really impressed with how much space i got for my money. I was also very appreciative of the swift responses to all my queries. So, thanks Jane for all you help. Will come again. And soon!

Thanks, Luke. It was a pleasure to have you stay at my place!
When in Venice...
I always stay at The Oasis. It is centrally located to all the Venice hot spots. Jane is a wonderful hostess and makes you feel like you have been friends forever..
