Description from the owner
Bike to world famous Venice Beach from this charming 2 Bedroom Mediterranean cottage surrounded by Monet gardens. The front yard is made private by flowering trees and flowers. We wish to make your trip to Venice wonderful and have tried to think of everything that will guarantee it to be so.
The cottage has all newly refinished hardwood floors except for Saltillo tiles in the kitchen and bathroom.

Venice Beach, California
Additional Location Information
Our house is on a tree-lined road adjacent to the idiosyncratic Venice Beach, a 10 minute bike ride away. Many people don't realize how busy Venice is--Venice Beach is the 2nd biggest attraction after Disneyland, and can be somewhat difficult to navigate, both in terms of LA traffic, but also in terms of parking. From the end of our street, you can hop on the bus to the beach and Boardwalk, and leave the driving to them. Abbot Kinney Blvd's shops and restaurants are coming into their own, and we are just 5 minutes by bike or bus to them as well.
While there is easy access to the beach (Michael and I are beach fanatics and if you ask for beach suggestions, we will gladly supply them), but we can get to any place we want to go including the museums, Malibu, Laguna. There is so much to see and do in Southern California, but the house supplies a wonderful patio to just hang out and rest if that's what you want to do when you're on vacation.
For us, the best part of this area, is that from our location we have all the convenience of the beach as well as Abbot Kinney Blvd., readily accessible with our bikes, but without the beach traffic. While Venice Beach Boardwalk is fascinating to stroll, it is the 2nd biggest attraction after Disneyland, and becomes jammed in the summer and during weekends. This is not only because of tourists, but because our fellow Angelinos come here as well to cool off. Meanwhile, the temperatures in Venice remain cool, especially at night.
Our neighborhood is amazingly easy to access to the rest of Los Angeles with all of its incredible places: Malibu, Hollywood, LACMA and the Getty Museum. But also the fantastic shops and restaurants of Abbot Kinney, as well as the Rose Cafe for breakfast
Right behind us, is a shopping center with an Albertson's and a Costco. Also Starbuck's and In-and-out-Burger. Or for affordable organics, a mile away down Lincoln Blvd. is Whole Foods. Gelson's is a mile away in the other direction.
Among real estate agents, Glyndon Avenue has been nicknamed, 'million dollar Glyndon Avenue', and while this nomenclature makes Michael and I laugh, we also understand it. While movie stars have lived on this street, more importantly for Michael and I, this is a neighborhood, where people walk their dogs and their children around the block every evening, and if we're working in the garden, we get to catch up on all of the neighborhood news. This is a very safe area of Venice--since we have lived here there has not been a break-in or robbery.
