I stayed 7 nights with my wife and 3 kids (23-F, 17-M & 16-M). Location to restaurants and bike rentals was closer than expected. To get to beach/Venice pier took less than 5 minute walk up Speedway. My 16 yr old spent most days at the Venice skate park that was a quick 5 minute bike ride. Great location for Ueber dropoff/pickup. Beach and Bike/walking path seemed like it was right in front of the rental. The rental was VERY CLEAN and extremely accommodating. The owner was very available for questions and seemed to really take an interest in making sure our experience was perfect. Plenty of towels and linens. All appliances in kitchen and laundry room appeared and worked like new. Getting in and out was simple using the garage pad code remote. The beach chairs and bicycles came in handy and were greatly appreciated. The keypad on the garage remote sometimes stuck, but never was a problem after figuring it out. The garage is tight as we were warned. We found that backing in and staggering it next to the other renters vehicle worked perfect. It was a little tricky backing in, but we had a van that made it somewhat more difficult than a small car. I used an Ueber to get to Santa Monica Pier and LA Fitness on Lincoln Blvd without any problem. Aside from the garage keypad and parking the car, there are so many good things that outweighed those two issues. Lastly, the main level balcony was perfect for morning coffee. The balcony(s) face southwest and you get a perfect shot of the sun rising. I look forward to staying at the McKenna's place again.
