Put on your beach goggles
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was more than happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We stayed for 5 nights starting on a Friday. The place was on a fairly busy street as the public parking lot access was at both ends of S Venice/ Pacific and at the beach. As is to be expected, Friday and Saturday Eve's are very lively in this area with restaurants/music just a block away and bedrooms face in their direction, so if you're an early bird, you may want to avoid those nights. I have lived near the beach in my 20's and so I liken the place to staying at a boyfriend's pad- he's pretty clean, has enough to get by on in the kitchen, and has some sense of decor. A few small improvements to the place could be made for very little cost. Some fresh paint, a good cleaning, and a freshen up of the bathroom fixtures ( lamps rusty, caulking has mildew stains). There was no hair dryer - I purchased one and left it for the future renters- hope that people are honest enough to leave it there! There was only one roll of paper towels and 4 rolls of toilet paper for 5 days and 5 people so we had to do some grocery shopping to supplement. The floors could have been cleaner. Rooftop area was nice to have as an alternative space to hang out. In a nutshell, the place had great proximity to the ocean and Venice beach Boardwalk, was a short drive to Abbott Kinney, and was generally ok. I am not likely to stay again but my expectations tend to be a bit higher than average! I did not reach out to the management team on any concerns- so in fairness, they did not have a opportunity to improve or react.
