Charming house, great location

5 out of 5 stars          
Review by Emily R.
You can't get a better location than a block and a half from the beach. The house was clean, charming, and well-maintained. What a great vacation!

Expected more for the money.

I have to begin by saying we had a good time here. It is a 3.5 in my book having stayed in many houses in the US, UK and Europe. Location is great, space is good, it is certainly clean but what lets it down is the quality of the fixtures and fittings. It feels very much like a cash cow to extract maximum rent whilst providing just basic level necessities. For example, the bathrooms are very dated and need replacing, some of the crockery is chipped, not enough glassware, there are holes in the beach towels, the rugs need cleaning, the beach stuff is old and a bit grubby. There is no safe to store valuables that you don't want to carry around with you all day. There is a tiny stove top kettle which takes 15 minutes to boil. I could go on. Small things yes, but things that make the difference between a great rental and an adequate one. On a positive note, he management company were very good to deal with, professional and fast in response.

The location was close to everything. The rental company was great to work with & very helpful. The homeowner lives next door & was extremely kind, even gave us some fresh limes from his tree!

Review by Stephanie W.
Great house is good location. Nice and quiet but close to the action. Managers are very friendly and helpful with booking and checking in. Great wash room facilities. 5 Bicycles included in rental which was perfect for getting around. Also free car parking which was very handy. We loved our stay and would definitely recommend.

Fantastic Family Vacation in Venice Beach

5 out of 5 stars          
Review by Jess A.
We had an amazing family vacation here! The house was spacious, comfortable and spotless, providing every 'comfort of home' we needed. (which made packing a breeze!) The location was also fantastic. The front porch of the house faces a lovely, quiet street which made for a wonderful way to have a morning coffee. The walking street leads to a quick easy walk to the beach. We loved our time here and will absolutely be back!

Great house steps from Venice Beach

We had an excellent time in this house! It had an adorable front yard, was well set up for our two little kids and adults alike. It was just steps from the ocean!!! The property management company was very professional.

Perfect spot on Venice Beach

Review by Susan H.
We had a wonderful experience renting this property. The host was very professional and quick to respond to the only issue we had. One of the bedrooms was staying too warm at night, so they immediately installed a small a/c in the window. Incrediable service! We would definitely stay here again. Loved sitting on the front porch. The bikes were fun to use on the bike path. The laundry was a plus. Very quiet location for such a busy place. Lovely lane, very private. Hope to visit again!

Lovely time with family at Venice Beach

It was a really lovely house, close to the beach, but far enough so we couldn't hear the shenanigans from the boardwalk. There were toys for us to take to the beach, so my two year old could play, as well as bicycles, which we used and had a great time. We enjoyed walking to the beach, to restaurants and the short drive to Whole Foods made our lives easier too. The only issues we had were so minor, that it didn't dampen the mood! The floors creaked quite a bit, so during naps, we had to be extra careful. The parking spot will be very tight for a full sized SUV (which we had rented). One of the bedroom doors would not work from the inside of the room. The house is really lovely and full of charm. We would stay there again!

Nice cottage in a great location

Nice property in a great location. Fronts on a very quiet walkway but only a few hundred feet from heart of boardwalk activity. Property is very pleasant but bathrooms are very dated. Could not use master bath shower as too small (we are NOT large people). Overall clean but rugs need to be shampooed.

Review by Jonni F.
The closeness of the beach was exaggerated. The condition of the property was disappointing. The floors and rugs were not clean, rug in small bedroom is falling apart and a dangerous condition as one can easily trip and fall. Wall decor and bathroom fan full of dust. Cookie sheet had cooked on food.Owner obviously doesn't take any pride in ownership.

Charming Escape

My family and I had a wonderful stay at the lovely bungalow that is near the action of Venice beach but yet tucked away on a special quiet pedestrian street. The rooms were spacious and light and the home was very well equipped with kitchen appliances, washer/dryer, bikes, sand toys etc. I would definitely recommend this house.

Great family accomodation

5 out of 5 stars          
Review by Angela G.
Very cosy "cottage/bungalow". Good quiet street despite being only about 50 yards to the beach. Very clean had everything we needed including a laundry which is great when traveling with family. Bikes were there to use but sadly chain came off but super handy to use for biking into Santa Monica. We choose the accomodation thinking we were a bit closer to Santa Monica and whilst by car it's only about 5 mins it is about a good 45 min walk there. Very good location to Abbot Kinney where there are plenty of good restaurants and trendy shops. Lots of uber drivers around which we used and found to be very reliable. I would highly recommend accomodation would stay there again. We are from Sydney, Australia so was nice to experience living like a "local" for a while. So much better than an hotel.

Review by Andre R.
We couldn't have asked for a better rental, a beautiful street leading us to the beach each day. The house was clean, roomy and had everything we needed. What better could you ask for than having a morning coffee on the porch and walking to the beach each morning. We have lived in California for 15 years and returned to the best rental one could ask for.

Awesome location and lovely home

Small Craftsman Near the Beach

Location, location, location is the best thing about this home. A block from Venice Beach and walking distance to Main Street in Santa Monica and Abbot Kinney in Venice. We regularly walked to Rose Cafe and Gjusta, two of our favorite restaurants. The house is small and old, but is in relatively good condition. The two very small bathrooms leave a lot to be desired. The rental agency was friendly and helpful and all the neighbors on the walk street were very lovely. We had a nice stay, but are frequent visitors to the Venice area and would not rent this home again.

Fantastic beach bungalow

5 out of 5 stars          
Review by Lisa D.
This was a great property for a relaxing weeks stay for our family of five. Seconds from the fabulous beach and Venice Boardwalk, yet in the quietist, cutest pedestrianised avenue. A few minutes walk from great shops and restaurants on Abott Kinney, Rose and Main st, 20 minutes stroll into the centre of Santa Monica and a short bike ride to Marina Del Ray - the location is great.The house itself is comfortable, bright and spacious with all the facilities you need, including laundry room, BBQ, bikes, boards and beach chairs and a lovely front porch and small garden to enjoy sundowners. The third bedroom is a little small compared to the other two, with access to the back porch which can make it a bit of a thoroughfare. Parking space is great. Would definitely recommend this house and the hosts were unbelievably helpful and efficient

Review by Susan H.
34 Thorton Ave house is a great family vacation home. We recently just finished our 3 week stay there and could not be happier!! The location was the best, the home was clean and had everything needed for a long stay, the management company was more than accommodating!! We would highly recommend this rental.
