JUST SO YOU KNOW - FYI
A dedicated parking space in the lot next door 30 feet from the front gate is an available option for $10 per day paid to the parking lot's owners. Let me know if you need a space and I will reserve one for you.
Venice is home to the headquarters of a large number of digital startups and behemoths (SnapChat, BuzzFeed, Digital Domain, Google SoCal, Omniture, Golden, to name a few) and associated venture capital companies, which is why it’s widely known as “Silicon Beach.” You might be surprised that the guy you passed on his skateboard on the boardwalk with dreadlocks, tattoos, and wearing an armless t-shirt recently sold the game he just finished coding to Electronic Arts for $25million. Or that the petite and seemingly young Asian woman eating on the table next to you at Egg Slut is Chief Information Officer of SnapChat. Or that the elderly gentleman with grubby jeans sipping coffee at the counter in Gjusta was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry 20 years ago. But wait, was that GOT's Peter Dinklage I just saw at Gold's Gym? Yes. Not that you’re necessarily the judging type, it’s worth noting that in Venice one most definitely can’t judge a book by its cover. There’s an eclectic mix of millennials, artists, creative types, academics, and investment bankers who all call Venice home. While there’s a lot of money sloshing around from digital startups and their funding bankers, a lot of models, actors, writers, and artists, there’s also a lot of ordinary folk just eking out a living on a shoestring. In spite of its new-found wealth, Venice has remained artsy, bohemian, avant-garde, edgy, and hip, but it’s also sometimes a little grimy, a little grubby, and even a little grungy. We kind of like it that way. You’ll notice that there’s quite a significant homeless population here, one that has come from all over the country to take advantage of the mild weather juxtaposed with the liberal, accepting, kind and considerate attitude of the local population, as well as its generosity. Please try not to be offended by its presence. We locals are doing the best we can to help mitigate the situation, trying to find solutions and alternatives for all those who find themselves -for whatever reason- living on the streets, and guiding as many as we can toward a path to permanent housing.
A stroll down the boardwalk in the evening can be fun as much for the people watching as for the live entertainment provided for passers by. Amazingly enough, the Venice Boardwalk is the second most visited attraction in Southern California behind - you guessed it - Disneyland. They couldn’t be more different. If you get a chance, check out the skateboard park just north of Muscle Beach to see some of the world’s best skateboarders in practicing their newest moves. Or, check out the basketball courts at the weekend for some amazing pro level action. Or the roller blade dancing in the park. Or the bike acrobats at Windward. Or the muscle building weightlifters at Muscle Beach. Catch the sunset at the beach every evening setting over the ocean or dropping behind the ocean edge of the Santa Monica Mountains depending upon the time of year. Catch a wave at the Venice Breakwater. Watch an impromptu live concert or performance on the Boardwalk. All in all, it really can be quite a scene, never the same, always changing, but one that makes Venice what it is.

Venice, Los Ángeles, California

We’d like to tell you a little about our neighborhood because it is absolutely FANTASTIC! Well, we live here, so not surprisingly, we're ever so slightly biased.... ; - ) [This is just a short guide for places that are convenient or that we & previous guests like. There are lots more you’ll find as you check out the area yourself. If you find something you think other guests will like that we haven’t included here, please share it with us (and if you have time, tell us why!), and we’ll be sure to pass it on.]
The necessities:
FOOD: Windward Market, our local store for victuals/provisions at the intersection of Windward at Pacific, about 300meters away from us going north on Pacific Avenue. You can get pretty much everything you need here.
BEVERAGES: We have a liquor store with some limited other provisions at Pacific and North Venice Blvd, about 100meters walk going south on Pacific Avenue.
DELI: Across the street from the liquor store is a small deli offering boutique items for daily needs.
GROCERY STORES: The closest big stores with the widest range of items are Erewhon, Whole Foods and Ralphs. Erewhon (the most expensive of the three) is on Venice Blvd., just east of the intersection with Abbot Kinney. Whole Foods is at Rose Avenue and Lincoln Blvd (see the map attached). Ralph’s is at California and Lincoln.
On route to Whole Foods you’ll pass through the awesome little mini restaurant district on Rose Avenue which is part of the wider renaissance of eateries known as Lincoln and Rose. Check it out online. At Rose and Hampton you’ll pass Rose Café, which really is quite superb, and very much the hip scene. You’ll also pass Venice’s skid row. A sign of our times, I’m afraid. At 5th and Rose, there’s a great place for breakfast, Flake; the best handmade ice cream, Jennie’s; and several really good restaurants and bars that serve really tasty food: Café Gratitude, Makani (fantastic!), Wallflower, Cerveteca, Bluestone Lane, and others.
Close to Whole Foods you’ll find Groundworks Coffee. They roast their own beans and supply many of the local restaurants with their roasted coffee.
On Rose at Pacific, but going the opposite direction toward the beach (when going north toward Santa Monica, turn left off Pacific instead of right toward Whole Foods ) you’ll head toward the boardwalk where you’ll find the Venice Ale House facing the beach. It’s great place to catch the sunset and listen to some live music overlooking the beach.
Our favorite deli is Gjusta on Sunset at 3rd Avenue: tasty morsels for breakfast, delicious coffee, breads, and pastries. It’s also another hip scene, too. As of writing this, there’s still no name on the door or store front: it’s in an industrial/commercial-looking white brick building, across the street from the back yard of Gold’s Gym and across the street from Google’s SoCal HQ.
A stand out local eatery is Tocaya Organica which is just around the corner, going north on Pacific Ave. It bills itself as modern organic Mexican cuisine. Bold flavors, very tasty, great value for money. They serve top notch margaritas, too! It’s at the corner of Pacific and 18th Avenue. A little further north is Mao’s Kitchen. Great Chinese food, which is next to Café Collage. Going east from the corner of Windward and Pacific, on the north east side of the Windward roundabout (traffic circle), is Hama Sushi. Lots of fun, and really good sushi. From here going south on Pacific, then west on Venice Blvd, are a couple of local favorites James’ Beach, a restaurant and bar (a VERY happening scene at the weekends) and the Canal Club.
Abbot Kinney Boulevard is a five minute walk away through the local neighborhood going east from Windward Circle (off Pacific Avenue). Abbot Kinney is its own restaurant district, with café’s, bars, restaurants and unique boutiques & shops etc. Check it out online, it’ll give you a good idea of what you’ll find. The Venice Canals (what remains of them) are also only a few minutes walk away just south of us. Go south on Pacific Avenue, then east on South Venice Boulevard. After a block, look to your right. You’ll see a little bridge-way accessing the Canals’ community.
A few other pointers:
Cafés: We are spoiled with superb cafés close by. Menotti’s is rated tops by local Venetians, on Windward west of Pacific, between Pacific and the Boardwalk. Great White is on the east side Pacific at Windward. A couple of Aussie surfers set this up recently, and it’s great for coffee, breakfast, and people watching! Gjusta is fantastic, and definitely worth a visit on Sunset at 3rd Avenue. A little further is Groundworks, on Rose (toward Whole Foods). Rose Café is 350 yards away on Rose, pricier for sure, but impressive. Blue Bottle (just coffee) is on Abbot Kinney, just off Westminster, as is Intelligentsia, a little further south on Abbot Kinney across from Andalusia. TJ’s “Espresso Yo’Self is a family favorite on 19th Avenue at the Boardwalk next to Muscle Beach.
Bars: The Other Room is a buzzy modern hangout on Abbot Kinney serving great beer and wine. The Brig, also on Abbot Kinney is a party scene with pool table and bouncer. Closer to home on Windward you’ll find the Bank of Venice, the Townhouse, and The Del Monte Speakeasy, with live music underground in the Cave. James Beach is around the corner and has a lively scene particularly on weekends, as does Venice Whaler on Washington at the boardwalk. The Lincoln, on Lincoln Avenue, is a local live music venue. Hennessey’s is a big Irish Pub on Lincoln south of Washington. Hirono’s is a pool table dive bar on Washington. There loads of establishments serving the younger crowd in the Washington Restaurant District, and in Santa Monica on Main Street.
Restaurants: We have several defined restaurant districts all either within walking distance or a short 5 minute Uber ride away: Abbot Kinney; Rose Avenue; The Boardwalk; Washington Blvd; Lincoln Avenue; and Main Street, in Santa Monica. Each one sports a long list of great eateries! We are truly spoiled for choice. Look them up online to see whether what they offer is what you are looking for. It’s wise to make reservations for any of them, or get there early or late. Some favorites: Barrique, on Pacific Ave., next to Buzzfeed’s HQ; Felix; Gjelina; The Butcher’s Daughter (very creative vegetarian); The Tasting Kitchen; Shima (sushi); Salt Air. At the far south end of Abbot Kinney where it crosses Venice Boulevard you’ll find Zinque (Excellent early good value breakfasts, and very late night fare). Rose Café, on Rose at Hampton, is rated tops by locals to top quality imaginative cuisine. Makani at Rose and Rennie is awesome! At Windward and Pacific, Mao’s Chinese, and on the traffic circle “Hama Sushi.”
Lincoln Boulevard is a few blocks to the East and sports many offerings. It completes the up and coming Rose/Lincoln/Abbot Kinney Restaurant/Arts District. Recommendations: Superba (excellent breads and pastries too). If you like sausages: WurstKutche. Clutch, for great barbeque. Agra, Indian Cuisine.
Washington Boulevard (to the south). Standouts: Charcoal, Chef Citrin was the man behind Melisse. If that means anything to you then you’re a foodie, and will likely not want to miss his wood-fired meats and other offerings. Check out the following online to see if any are up your street: Leona Restaurant; C&O Trattoria; Baja Cantina; Sunny Spot; Scopa Italian Roots (FANTASTIC!); Simmzy’s artisan burgers & craft beers.
Boardwalk: If you like raw ahi tuna, check out Poke Poke on the board walk just south of Muscle Beach. For Italian, try Venice Osteria West on Dudley.
For old school Mexican, try La Cabana, on the south side of Rose just before Lincoln, across from the Whole Foods parking lot, or La Baja Cantina on Washington, ¼ mile east of Pacific.
The best coffee: Again, spoiled for choice. Rated tops by locals, at Windward, west of Pacific toward the boardwalk, you’ll find one of the best coffee venues in town: Menotti’s Café ( a little further down Windward from the Bank of Venice, Townhouse and the Speakeasy).
The best Pizza: unquestionably, Abbot’s Pizza on Abbot Kinney.
The best burgers: without argument, the best, definitely is Simmzy’s, at Pacific and Washington. They serve top notch artisan beers too. Close runner up is: Larry’s, on Windward and Speedway.
The best bar for sunset: irrefutably the best sunset views are from the Hotel Erwin Rooftop Deck. Get there early to bag a seat. ½ block south of the corner of Windward and Pacific. Next: Venice Ale House, at Rose & the Boardwalk.
The best sushi: it’s a tie, between Hama Sushi on Windward at Main, in Venice; and Sugar Fish in the Marina Del Rey shopping center off Admiralty Way at Mindanao. Or…Noma Sushi, on Montana and 21st Street in Santa Monica.
The best breakfast: It’s a multi-way tie. Our local favorite is Great White (as in Shark), across the street from Egg Slut. Tied are the Egg Slut, on Pacific next to the Hotel Erwin. Home of the morning ShapChat crowd. Zinque, at Abbot Kinney and Venice Boulevard. Flake at 5th and Rose. Gjelina at 3rd and Sunset. Superba, at Superba Ave and Lincoln. Rose Café, on Rose at Hampton.
Other areas close by:
Washington between Pacific and the Boardwalk. It’s its own little dining district, with bars, café’s, and restaurants. C&O Cucina. Baja Cantina. Leona’s. Hinano (dive bar, pool, burgers and beer). Venice Whaler.
Marina Del Rey: Café Del Rey, very posh, overlooks the Marina. White tablecloth service, etc. The cinema district (several good restaurants and bars, lots of shopping). Sugar Fish sushi off Admiralty Way. Cheesecake Factory overlooking the Marina.
Santa Monica: Main Street. A whole other world of bars, pubs, restaurants, and shops. It’s just a few blocks from your front gate, and starts at Rose and Main. Or, on Ocean Boulevard, lots of superb restaurants, too many to list. And….the 3rd Street Promenade, shops, restaurants, cafes, where you can findThe Apple Store. Say no more.

OTHER PLACES TO VISIT.
Santa Monica Pier: If you’ve got youngish kids, they’ll think you’ve taken them to Disneyland. Rides and things tourists seem to love. Santa Monica 3rd Street Promenade: very nicely done touristy shopping district. Nice restaurants. Great shops.
Pasadena. Period. It’s a completely different vibe, with lots to do for a day trip. Check it out online. The Norton Simon Museum and the Huntington Library & Gardens are in Pasadena, both worth the trip.
The Getty Museum, and The Getty Villa. Two completely different locations. Both excellent day trips, fascinating and rewarding.
The Griffith Park Observatory. A wonderful place to visit with intriguing permanent exhibits, offering one of the best planetariums around, great dining, and a place to watch the sun set and stars come out. A local treasure.
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has really interesting permanent and temporary exhibits.
The Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA): ditto the above (see The Geffen Contemporary downtown).
The Downtown arts district, including the Disney Center. Check out musical offerings.
The Greek Theater, and The Hollywood Bowl: Excellent live music venues.
Hollywood: Take the train, and do a day trip. Or check out the bar scene at night and Uber home.
Other places: There’s the world famous – Universal Studios, Disneyland; there’s local theme park favorites, Six Flags Magic Mountain & Knott’s Berry Farm; for car enthusiasts, there’s The Petersen Automotive Museum and The Nethercutt Collection; and there are others for the more cerebral, such as the Museum of Tolerance; The Japanese American National Museum (a short walk from the Geffen Contemporary); the California Science Center & Museum of Natural History; the La Brea Tarpits; The Eli Broad Museum of Contemporary Art; The Autry Museum of the American West; The Norton Simon and The Huntington Library and Gardens, both up in Pasadena. The Ronald Reagan Library in Moorpark, Simi Valley. These are just a few. A little research will uncover a treasure trove of things to do. Plus, for the oenophiles among you, we have several excellent vineyards in the local area (notably Malibu, and Santa Monica Mountains), and some world famous wine appellations a short day trip away (to the north, Santa Barbara, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez, and Paso Robles; to the south, San Ysidro, Temecula).



IF YOU HAVE A CAR
Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach: two very cute beach town communities each with its own distinct beachy vibe. Completely different from Venice. MB Post and Fishing with Dynamite are top rated restaurants. Hermosa has a great live music scene too, home to the fabled Lighthouse jazz venue, as well as the Comedy and Magic Club.
Malibu: if you come to LA you simply must visit Malibu. It’s a beach community that stretches 27 miles along the coastline. There’s no real heart to Malibu, just lots of little places on route with a few hubs that double as town centers. The places to see are the Pier, the Adamson House, and the beaches. Check out the jewels of the coastline: El Matador, El Pescador, and La Piedra, these are all my favorite, as they are quintessentially southern California beaches, not ruined by development, not surrounded by houses, and are the most untouched of all of the best beaches in Malibu. You can also go online and search for 10 Best Secret Beaches of Malibu, too, as there are lots of other “hidden” beaches. One site “Californiabeaches.com” has a great list of other beaches with pics of how to get there and find them (Staircase, Latigo, and Heavens beaches are excellent).
The Port at Long Beach: the aquarium, the Queen Mary, the USS Iowa. To see some local Latino Culture check out the Mariachi’s at the Weekend Sea Food Fiesta at the Port in San Pedro, or at Port’s O Call.
Vineyards: We have some superb appellations a day trip drive away. To the north, Santa Barbara, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez, and Paso Robles. To the south, San Ysidro, Temecula. Check them out online. There are lots of tasting rooms, restaurants and boutique hotels to choose from.
Santa Barbara. About 1 ½ hours drive north via Malibu. It is one of American’s most beautiful cities. Visit the Santa Barbara Mission, walk State Street, check out the Pier. Go inland to the wine country. Stay at The Rose Inn, a lovely boutique hotel a short walk to the beach and State Street. Complimentary local wine and cheese served there every day, too!
THE BEST GUIDEBOOK FOR LOS ANGELES
Without a doubt, the Lonely Planet Travel Guide. I used to stock one in the cottage but it kept walking away with guests and not returning. My best tip for you -if you really want to get to know Los Angeles- go find the book and read it. Great tips on what to do, where to do it, when and how. A close second: Time Out Los Angeles. Check them both out online. Also, Airbnb has some great things for visitors to do that are often a little different, creative and interesting: check it out online too.
SURFING, WINDSURFING & KITEBOARDING, STAND UP PADDLE BOARDING
Southern California is blessed with some of the best surfbreaks in the world, and many are a short drive from here. You can check out the surf conditions daily online, as well as check which breaks are best for you and your level/type of surfing. Local breaks are at Sunset and the boardwalk, and the Venice Breakwater at Muscle Beach (18th / 19th Avenues and the Boardwalk), which is REALLY good for beginners. Further afield but still reasonably close are El Porto in North Manhattan Beach to the south (advanced), and Topanga and Surfrider beaches to the northwest. There are some epic breaks on the Malibu Coast – do a little research beforehand to find the right one. Wet Sand surf forecast will give you swell height, direction, timing, tide, and wind information. Enter North America West, then Southern California, then Northern LA. Check out Nerverush.com for the 7 best surfbreaks close by, or surfertoday.com.
Windsurfing and kiteboarding are best out at Leo Carillo Beachpark, or down in Long Beach. You can get lessons and rent equipment. It’s best if you go online to check conditions and find the right equipment or lessons.
We have some excellent locations for stand-up paddle boarders and those wanting to learn the sport. Pros can get out on any of the surf breaks. Beginners can learn on perfectly flat water in the Marina Del Rey. Go online to find out offerings. Our local Shop is Poseidon Sports in Santa Monica. They can arrange equipment and/or lessons.
MOUNTAIN BIKING
The Santa Monica Mountains are close by and provide some awesome mountain bike riding. The fire roads carve paths throughout the range providing hundreds of miles of trails, leading to some epic single track routes for everyone from downhill pros, through weekend warriors, to those just cutting their teeth on the sport. Bring your own bike or rent something that matches your skill level. If uphill seems too much for you, you can now keep up with the others by getting a mountain bike with battery assist to get you up the top of the trails with those who bike more seriously/regularly than you do. Finally, you can enjoy the bike ride downhill with all the others! Less pain, more gain. Now that’s a win/win for everyone!
JUST SO YOU KNOW
Venice is home to the headquarters of a large number of digital startups and behemoths (SnapChat, BuzzFeed, Digital Domain, Google SoCal, Omniture, Golden, to name a few) and associated venture capital companies, which is why it’s widely known as “Silicon Beach.” You might be surprised that the guy you passed on his skateboard on the boardwalk with dreadlocks, tattoos, and wearing an armless t-shirt recently sold the game he just finished coding to Electronic Arts for $25million.
