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.

The space

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.

Please feel free to ask any questions. We're here to help you have the best Venice/Santa Monica experience on your trip!!!

Enrique is a very attentive and communicative host. The apartment is a block from the beach and all the Venice action. Once you get there you don't need your car - lots of restaurants

From the moment I contacted Enrique, he was bright, knowledgeable, and eager to help me out. This was my first experience with airbnb and after some issues finding a place, I'm glad I found Enrique. His place was exactly as described and couldn't have been a better place. We had 3 in our party and were able to comfortably live in his place for a week. It was right off the boardwalk and was absolutely perfect to walk down. If you ever needed him, he always responded back to his airbnb messages within 10 minutes. On top of that he was full of excellent information and ideas if you were looking for something to do while in LA. If you're looking for a place to stay that's central to everything and feels just like at home, book this place.

Enrique was a most helpful and friendly host who willingly answered all our questions. His eclectic apartment was in a splendid position for access to the ever weird scene on Venice Beach. It was also within walking distance of the very beautiful Venice canals. We would heartily recommend it, and it was so much better than a faceless hotel suite.

I would highly recommend staying at Enrique's place. The location is the absolute best and you absolutely can not beat it. Just 1 block from Venice beach. Enrique's communications skills are 100% as they should be. He made checking in very easy & met me there when it was convenient for me. His place is clean, the bathroom & kitchen were both spotless & he even provided beach towels, beach bikes, wine & some snacks. Super nice guy. Highly recommended.

The Enrique's Oasis is fantastic place to relax and enjoy the location. It's very comfortable for couple. Thanks to the nice photos and details You can feel the positive spirit. Location gives you a chance to be on the beach in 2 minutes and main promanade of Venice, it saves a lot of time during the day. The most important in all of that is Enrique person:) He gives the full support and the great communication. Would like to return one day...
