Perks for the Parents

Kick back and relax in this cool calm bungalow in Venice Beach, California - just minutes from the beach and tourist attractions. It sleeps 4 + 1. The hosts have created a peaceful retreat that’s designed to nurture, protect, soothe and inspire, more than to show. It provides the perfect antidote to the bustling surroundings of one of LA’s quirkiest neighborhoods: hike in the mountains, swim at the beach, visit unique shops, eat at famous restaurants, or explore the local farmers markets to discover the best of Californian culture. Take the kids to the area’s fantastic skate parks and playgrounds, or let them explore the teen-friendly Venice walk streets. What’s more, the house is well equipped for those looking to enjoy family time while working remotely, with desks, work lights and chairs in every room, including the outdoors.

Why Kids Love it

This home is ideal for families with babies or children aged 10 and over. Toddlers are welcome, however they would need constant supervision, especially around the deck area. There are plenty of children’s books, as well as a guitar available for any budding magicians and a cool hammock in the children’s room (made in Mexico by Cielo). This house is a perfect base for teens to safely explore and have fun in the most exciting area of Los Angeles. It’s 1 block from Marine Park and playground and just a short walk from the best playground ever - the beach! This area has lots of fun things for kids to enjoy: Venice Skate Park down at the coast, Venice walk streets and Abbot Kinney Blvd are all within half an hour’s walk.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 nights. Safety notes: there’s an open fire in the garden and a gravel stone patio, so younger kids or toddlers will need supervision outside. The house is designed to sleep 4 guests but the house can accommodate 6. The hosts prefer one family at a time and there is a maximum of 4 guests. A playpen/crib can be provided on request. There’s no off-street parking but street parking is available if you need a car for out-of-town journeys: Venice Beach is a surprisingly walkable city and there are plenty of bikes and scooters to rent in the area, as well as bus routes available nearby on Lincoln Avenue. The hosts have a smaller bike ideal for kids aged 7 to 10 years old. The house comes with an outdoor shower, dishwasher, washer/dryer, WiFi and a projection screen (in place of a TV). Dogs are welcome for stays of 7+ days with the additional fee of a $200 cleaning charge.

About the Location

The property is located in quirky Venice Beach, in Los Angeles, California. It’s an easy walk across Lincoln Avenue to get groceries at Whole Foods, and you can keep walking on Rose Avenue and find iconic restaurants like Wallflower, Gratitude and Win-Dow. Further on Rose Avenue towards Sunset, you’ll find the most coveted breakfast in town at Gjusta, or keep walking on down to the Boardwalk and the beach. The activities here are countless: swimming, surfing, biking, skating, paddle boarding, yoga, playgrounds and more. It’s around 20 minutes to both the beach at Abbot Kinney, and just 30 minutes by bike to Santa Monica along the beautiful sandy cycle paths. LAX airport is 30 minutes’ drive.

Accommodation Details

This 2-bedroom bungalow is all set on 1 floor. The living room, dining area, projection room, laundry room and kitchen are integrated into an open plan space, subtly separated and defined by different structures. A doorway leads to a more private area, which features the bathroom (with bathtub) and an adjacent teens bedroom with a Japanese-inspired floor structure that includes a bed, stage, work space, storage and seating area. On leaving this corridor you’ll enter the hearth room: it has a fireplace, an office corner area with an electric standing desk and it can double as a bedroom for 2 guests on single sofabeds (for an extra fee). This room leads to the primary bedroom (with a queensize bed and ensuing walk-in shower room) and the patio. Outside, the space has been recently landscaped with native Californian vegetation. The outdoor patio offers an ample deck with 2 defined areas: an outdoor dining space and a cozy fire pit nook.

Style Notes

California dreaming. This home has been conceived with sustainability and well-being at the core, with the aim of creating a safe space for neuro-diverse individuals who often need an organized space free from sensory stimulation. The palette is made up of neutral tones throughout, creating the perfect canvas for the hosts’ cherished elements, collected over time. The original layout remains, creating a perfect balance between public and private activities, despite the host’s careful adaptations. We love the fluid conversation between all the different areas throughout the house, the the contemporary yet simple plywood furniture and the cozy mix of colored textiles in the living space.

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.
