It is a few blocks away from trendy Rose Avenue and Ocean Park with great restaurants and shops, and around 2 miles (8 minutes’ drive) from Venice Beach.

Style Notes

Bright and light. This beautifully remodeled and private family home has modern touches, Ligne-Roset couches and Keetsa mattresses in every room. Remodeled by Potter Mallis, it has white oak floors, marble countertops, and a custom dining table for 8, plus a gourmet kitchen featuring Thermador appliances. We love the rack of surfboards in the back yard, fuelling our Californian dreams, the bedroom with direct garden access and the play fort for playful imaginary pirates.

We love to travel! The mountains, beach, and desert are all in our California backyard. We decided to host because we know the joys of traveling with kids, and also a few of the hardships. Our home makes it easy!

Ana was incredibly accommodating of our schedule changes and requests for what turned out to be a perfect family getaway. Her home and backyard is gorgeous, and the central location cannot be beat. We had 5 children here ages 2 to 8 and everyone had a blast. Thank you, Ana!

Our family had a fun, relaxing stay at Ana's house. The back yard was perfect for our two boys to run around, play soccer, and use the play structure. We also liked that we could easily walk to a park, grill, watch a movie, etc around the house as well as reach a lot of good restaurants with a short drive.

Ana's home is phenomenal. The location is great--really close to Venice and Santa Monica. The house itself is beautifully appointed and the yard is genuinely special. We had two kids (ages 4 and 1) who loved the house, the yard, and the selection of toys and books. Finally, Ana was a helpful and accommodating host.

We loved our trip to Venice and this house made it so enjoyable for our family. We enjoyed the space in the yard for our kids to run and play, and the kids enjoyed the toys in our down time. The kitchen was a lovely space to share meals around the table. We would highly recommend the Walgrove Ave. Residence!

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.
