Perks for the Parents

Well set up for a family stay with a full kitchen and large round marble table for family meals in the dining area. The master suite offers an escape for parents with a view out to the garden/pool and a private bathroom with walk-in shower. The back yard is lovely: it has a small pool that's quick to heat, a hummingbird-loving fountain, exquisite flowers in bloom, and comfortable outdoor furniture to enjoy it all.

Why Kids Love it

The residence has plenty of toys and books for kids of all ages. There is a pool. There is a large play room in the back yard (converted from a garage) that has toys, Lego, and a large TV. It's a short walk to a local playground, Penmar Park, and a 10-minute bike ride to the beach. Beach cruisers can be provided on request. The residence has a family bathroom with a tub for the kids.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 nights. On 1 floor so ideal for smaller children but no crib or high chair is provided. Note that there is a plunge pool in the garden with a soft cover. A pool gate is available for families with small children - please request if required. A deposit is required. No pets. The hosts can add an air bed and single foam mattress. Car rental useful but not essential: Uber/Lyft make travel around the city very convenient. Adult and kids bikes can also be made available on request

About the Location

The residence is located in a quiet, family friendly cul-de sac on the border between Venice and Santa Monica, 7 miles from LAX airport. There is a 9-hole public golf course 1 block from the home. The Pacific Ocean is a 10-minute bike ride from the home. Hiking trails are about 6 miles away and shopping is very close with Abbot Kinney just a short bike ride from the house. the kids will love the nearby park for baseball and tennis. Disneyland is about an hours drive away, and Hollywood is roughly 25 mins away by car. Whole Foods and Ralph’s are a short walk away for grocery shopping.

Accommodation Details

Three bedroomed 1 story house with a landscape architect-designed garden and plunge pool. There is a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and 2 other bedrooms, 1 twin, 1 double, that share a bathroom with a tub/shower, along with a full family kitchen, dining room and lounge. The back yard has space to lounge, splash, play and is perfect for that relaxing cocktail at the end of a busy day sightseeing.

Style Notes

Bright, light, fresh, and sophisticated. The home has a feel of a Venice Beach bungalow but with an East coast style. We love the pretty master bedroom with its sage green walls and garden access, the hammock hanging over the plunge pool and the red and white striped chairs on the porch. Most of all, it feels breezy and filled with sunshine. A perfect oasis for a stay in LA.

This is a great place to stay for any family looking to be in Venice and near the beach while still having a relaxing experience! Tessa was great and extremely responsive to our questions and needs. The house was fantastic! It had enough space inside with a beautiful backyard, pool, and separate living spaec to be able to fully enjoy the year round beautiful California weather. Also, well located near everything you may want to see in Venice. Tessa even left tips on local places that she and her family love, which were all delicious and fun! Our 2.5 year old loved the backyard and looking at all the beautiful flowers and sitting outside to eat. We would definitely stay at Indiana Court again when visiting Venice. Thanks Goss family helping us have a lovely week!

We had an absolutely lovely stay in the Indiana Court Residence! Tessa was a fabulous hostess- helpful, responsive and generous. The home is very comfortable and felt like a "home away from away." We have two small boys who enjoyed the open space in the backyard as much as the adults did for those days. Location is ideal and convenient for anything you may need during your stay. We will be back for sure. THANK YOU!

An oasis of calm and beauty in the middle of Venice Beach close to the foodie paradise of Abbot Kinney, the canals and the beach. There were bikes available to us so we more or less parked the car for our few days here. The outdoor space is a sanctuary; my favorite part of this gem of a rental.

We loved our stay here and hope to return! The only negative was that we were there during a heat wave and there's no central air but the temperatures were definitely above average. The back yard is dreamy and the location is great. The host was also very easy to communicate with and very accommodating.

Our family had a wonderful time at the Indiana Court home. Tessa was a lovely host, going above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of. The home was clean and a great layout for our family of 5. The garden was relaxing and gorgeous, the perfect place to spend warm LA evenings with family and friends... we only wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you for your hospitality.

The house was even lovelier than I expected. The outdoor space, especially, is just out of this world. It was inspiring and relaxing just spending time in their beautifully landscaped (and kid friendly) yard and pool. The master bedroom is really beautiful, too.

Our stay at the Indiana Court Residence in Venice was the true highlight of our entire west coast vacation! The house was a total dream—beautiful, comfortable, completely spotless, and equipped with every amenity under the sun! (Our two-year-old daughter didn't want to leave—and neither did we!) The host family was amazing in every way and made our trip that much more enjoyable with their hospitality and a thorough list of local favorites that didn't disappoint! We will no doubt stay here again if and when we're back in LA—couldn't be happier!

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.
