If you're visiting Venice Beach and wanting to stay somewhere beautiful, worldly, and soothing, our peaceful sanctuary awaits you.
Your own parking spot is included.
Created by A Ph.D. psychologist and professional travel and documentary photographer, this apartment is truly an oasis of worldly treasures from around the globe. Everything in it has been consciously chosen to create a truly peaceful, yet colorful and enchanting retreat by the ocean - right in the middle of the best Venice and Santa Monica spots to walk or bike to.
The building is actually on the same street as Abbot Kinney Blvd, voted as "The coolest block in America" by GQ Magazine (The name changes to Brooks Ave just before it gets to the beach). It's also just blocks away from trendy Main Street and the ultra-hip Rose Avenue (with the coolest, most beach-romantic restaurants and wine bars). Intelligentsia (considered the "Best Coffee in Los Angeles") is up the street, along with boutiques, galleries, and everything unique. This is the very best spot in Venice to be, and the beach, the food, and the shopping are fabulous! And although parking is included, you can walk or bike the shortest distances to all of Venice's and Santa Monica's deliciously alternative beach offerings.
If you've ever watched Californication, you've probably seen the apartment. It's next door to "Karen" and "Hanks" Venice loft.
We're also close to Muscle Beach, the Venice Canals, Third Street Promenade, the Santa Monica Farmer's Market, and the Santa Monica Pier.
Very nice bikes are included (a men's and a women's).
The space is best suited for one or two adults, and there's a queen-sized futon couch that can sleep two more people (it has a new, comfortable memory foam mattress topper and is made for daily use). The main bed is a new, very nice Beauty Rest pillow top.
Additional amenities include an air conditioner, filtered water for drinking and showering, laundry room, wireless internet, cable (including Showtime, etc), a great stereo with speakers in different rooms, a great bottle of wine, fruit, snacks, and breakfast items for cooking to greet you...but most importantly, a uniquely peaceful haven to rejuvenate your body and mind.
