Perks for the Parents

This sunny family apartment in Venice, sleeping up to 6 plus 2 babies, is in the heart of one of Los Angeles' greatest streets and just 15 minutes’ walk to the beach. It is a truly great location: vintage stores, hip coffee houses, child-friendly restaurants and yoga studios are on your doorstep. With 3 large bedrooms, one especially for kids, it suits a family with 2-4 children. The residence also has a private front patio, lounge-diner with wooden floors and TV/DVD player and a kitchen set up for family catering. After a day spent playing in the sand, convene for dinner on the patio.

Why Kids Love it

The property has a bedroom set up for kids with toys and books. Toys include train sets, wooden blocks and beach toys for age 0-12. A pack’n’play is available. It is a 15-minute walk to the beach (fine with older kids, younger children might prefer to be driven) and close to the colorful shops and cafes of Abbot Kinney Boulevard. The private front patio is ideal for all sorts of activities including barbecues, lunches and marshmallow roasting over the fire pit. There are surf lessons available at the nearest beach and the host can offer surfboard hire on request. Best of all, you can feel the breeze from the Pacific.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 nights. The property is on the second floor and is set over 1 level. Stair gates not required. Note that there is some petty crime in the area but this property is very secure with a door code. Bedrooms are at the back of the house so street noise is at a minimum. There may be 2 bikes available to borrow - please ask on booking. WiFi throughout; cable TV and Netflix available. Check in: 2pm.

About the Location

The property is on LA’s famed Abbot Kinney Boulevard, 15 minutes by car/taxi from LAX and 15-20 minutes walk from the nearest beach. There is public parking available for a fee nearby - as with most of Los Angeles, car rental is recommended. The apartment is an easy walk from stellar restaurants and shops. Venice Canals and Marina del Rey, great for kids, are both around 15 minutes' walk away.

Accommodation Details

This 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment is on the second floor and over 1 level. It has 3 big bedrooms: 2 doubles and 1 kids twin room plus a playroom. There are 2 bathrooms, one with a tub, one with a shower. The residence also has a family kitchen and lounge with cozy sofas, TV and DVD player and a private front porch/patio with fire pit and seating.

Style Notes

Eclectic family. Set on Abbot Kinney Boulevard, what else would you expect but color, light, ocean breezes and an easy living place to stay? Unique touches include vintage chandeliers and Moroccan poufs. We love the beach house feel, with white walls and drapes and jars of seashells, the fun stack of colorful books by the TV, and cute Moroccan-inspired outdoor dining area.

The Abbot Kinney Residence is a charming property very walkable to the shops and restaurants in Venice. We enjoyed staying here with our son for a few days and would recommend it to other families, particularly those with older children.

Oh gosh, we loved our stay at the Abbot Kinney Residence! The apartment was perfect for our then-three-year-old, who was thrilled with the collection of toys, including those for the beach and the "Little Legos." Parking is easy, the kitchen is well-equipped, and the residence was an easy walk from the stellar restaurants and shops of Abbot-Kinney Boulevard. We wound up driving to the local beaches, but older kids would have been fine to walk. For travelers with small children and early bedtimes, we recommend enjoying takeout from GTA (Gjelina Take Away- with the windows open and a bottle of rose! Thank you, The Williams Family (Seattle, WA)

Venice Beach, Los Angeles

Canals and Beaches

Soak up the sights and sounds on foot or by bike at Venice’s Ocean Front Walk - a 2.5 mile impromptu stage full of colorful artists and characters. If you’re feeling brave, Venice beach is a great spot for beginner surfers, otherwise relax in the sand. When you’re done in the sun, explore the manmade canals modeled after its namesake in Italy. Watch for ducks as they dart through the many arched bridges over the canals.
