This is NOT a condo, a townhouse, an apartment, a guest house, a loft, a cottage, a shared house or a rented space. This is a stand-alone home on a lot twice the lot size of typical homes in Venice, with a beautiful sunny garden in the front & back and over 400 varieties of flowers and plants, minutes to Marina Del Rey, LAX Airport, Westwood, Beverly Hills & Hollywood.
This home features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and can sleep up to 6 people. Bright, airy windows bring fresh ocean breeze into every room. It's easy to enjoy many beautiful views of the flower-filled garden. French doors from the dining room and master bedroom open to the large wrap-around deck overlooking the garden, providing wonderful, calming indoor/outdoor living. The bright birch wood kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances and has everything you could possibly need to create a gourmet meal. Help yourself to fresh Meyer lemons and loquats outside your kitchen window, or take a short, pleasant walk to the weekly farmer’s market a few blocks away.
Enjoy your meal or just relax and renew on the spacious deck overlooking the garden. Fragrant jasmine, honeysuckle, exotic stephanotis, and many other flowering vines drape over the arbor, and the covered dining and sitting areas provide comfort, rain or shine. Fairy lights on the deck and throughout the garden create magical, twinkling lighting in the evening. The garden was designed with love and creativity, featuring over 300 varieties of both exotic and traditional plants. Fresh flowers, vegetables, herbs and fruits delight the senses, year round. Butterflies, hummingbirds, and many types of songbirds grace the garden with their beauty.
The home is located in a safe peaceful neighborhood with families and young professionals.
The home has hardwood and slate flooring, recessed lighting on dimmers and with lamps on remotes. It has been furnished with quality items ranging from antiques to designs by Eames and Nelson. Furnishings from Ligne Roset, H.D. Buttercup, Crate and Barrel, CB2, Room and Board, DWR and more all reflect the Californian aesthetic of clean, modern lines accented by the character and depth drawn from different traditions.
The bright and comfortable living room greets you upon entering the home, and the brand new 48 inch 4k TV set provides a visual feast. The bookshelves offer a wide range of reading materials for your perusal, as well as some natural curiosities and art pieces for your enjoyment.
The master bedroom is located at the back of the house and has a king bed with luxury, 500 thread count linens. It features an ensuite bathroom and full closet with built-in organizers. Two sets of French doors lead to the deck, perfect for your morning coffee or for peaceful reflection.
One guest bedroom has a queen sized bed with a Tempurpedic mattress. We have appointed the bed with high quality, high thread count luxury linens for your comfort. The room also has a twin sized bed (tucked away, trundle style) for an additional guest if desired. There are also games and toys for your entertainment.
The second guest bedroom has a comfortable and stylish Ligne Roset convertible bed/sofa. It opens to an approximately queen sized bed, but is slightly longer. We provide luxurious, high thread count linens for this bed as well.
The house is stocked with an abundance of bedding, comforters, pillows, blankets, throws, etc., for your use.
The guest bathroom is located conveniently in the hallway. Soft, plush Charisma cotton towels are provided for your use. Beach towels are available for fun and relaxation.
The dining room opens out onto the deck via French doors and overlooks the garden. Enjoy your dinner inside or out, with seating for six at our 1920’s English dining table, or out on the deck on the outdoor dining table. A stainless steel, propane powered Weber BBQ is ready for grilling.
The deck has multiple sitting areas and is perfect for hanging out and chatting, reading, birdwatching, yoga, taking a nap, sunbathing, savoring a cup of tea, or sipping some wine.

This listing has never been used as a BnB as of March 2016. At this point, we are only booking folks only 3 months in advance.
Please be respectful of the home and garden. Everything there was chosen, placed, or planted with care and love and we would like you to enjoy it as we did and hope others will in the future as well. Please do not take or remove anything from the property. Any damages or problems should be reported to us immediately and we will try to remedy any issues.
This is a quiet neighborhood with families and professionals, so please no loud music or parties. Guests on the property should be only those on the contract. We reserve the right to have full name and contact information on each guest staying at the home. Please make sure all guests in your party read, understand, and abide by the house rules.
One pet under 20 lbs may be allowed, but ONLY with our explicit approval. Additional cleaning fees may be required. No "visiting" pets to be brought by visitors for any amount of time.
Please, no smoking indoors and no drugs. No burning of candles, incense or any item or product inside the house.
No frying, especially animal flesh frying, is allowed in the house as cleaning all furniture and walls of residual grease and odors would take us a lot of labor.
Any undisclosed guests or animals visiting the property will forfeit the stay.
We reserve the right to enter the yards for care or maintenance during stays, and will do our best to coordinate a mutually convenient time. (We try to avoid this, but it may be necessary for longer stays or upon exigent circumstances.)
We hope that all of our guests will enjoy staying at our home, and hope that you will help us achieve that by treating the property with care and consideration. :)
