Style Notes

Modern beach house. This stylish home is finished with understated interiors in natural shades, with wooden furniture and just the right amount of color from the curated art and soft furnishings. Large windows offer lots of light and the modern finishing and marble countertops appear throughout the house for an added touch of luxury. We love the spectacular Crittall-effect shower in the primary ensuite bathroom, the quirky kids bedroom and the tropical palm print wallpaper in the bathroom.

We are an active family that love to ski and surf. We've spent the last 20 years living in Asia and have been lucky enough to experience many different countries all over the world. We love our neighborhood and the lifestyle that is Venice!

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.

We spent 10 days in this lovely house. Karen is a wonderful host and we cannot be thankful enough that she shared her amazing family home with us. The terrace and garden, the pool are perfect and they have been a highlight of our stay; the kitchen has all equipment and kitchenware you can need (this a French foodie speaking), the pool is a delight and all the details of this very sophisticated yet chill place make it very special. The location is ideal, a 5 minutes bike away from Abbot Kinney and the beach, yet a bit quieter and the playground at the corner of the street.

We had a great stay at Walnut Ave! The house is gorgeous yet comfortable and the pool, hot tub and fire pit were all highlights for our family. My kids, ages 11 and 9, also enjoyed discovering they have the same taste in books as our hosts and spent lots of time reading -- an added bonus for sure. They described our experience as "5+ stars." We hope to go back one day!
