The water pressure was low for two weeks, You could not wash the shampoo out of your hair. The curtains on bedroom windows let light in all night long from outdoor security lights. The main entrance door was shorter than a normal 80"door and I hit my head on the door frame several times.

We stayed at VBV for most of the month of January, 2015. Because we booked late we had to move to several different units during the month. This was not a problem for us and we understood this was part of the "price" we paid for booking so late. So, my review is actually based on 4 different units -... More

The web site stated that Menedez property was 3 blocks from beach, when in fact it is 6 blocks. The website stated it was quiet, which it was, extremelynquiet except for the constant sirens from a nearby fire station. The web stated it was clean, which it was. The properties are old, outdated and did not meet our expectations for... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy your experience at our Menendez St property. To clarify, we are one third of a mile from the beach which is 3 city blocks. There are a couple different ways to walk to the beach from Menendez St but the most direct route is 3 city blocks. There is a map on our... More

We love this place in the quiet little neighborhood close to the beach and shops, the relaxed friendly atmosphere and wonderful staff and owners. This was our second trip back and we will likely make this our usual spot. Love it!

One year since our first stay we came back for a couple of days and were just as impressed. Fantastic heated pool. Excellent room with superb amenities such as big fridge, amply equipped kitchen, two TVs, big comfortable bed. Friendly, relaxed staff. Great location an easy stroll to the sea or to cafes and bars. We love this place.

Great location to Venice Beach and downtown Venice shoppes and great restaurants. Check out Luna's Ristorante and Sharkeys On The Pier. To name just a few. Also, check out Casey Key just north of Venice. Beautiful area.

We stayed in a 2 bed/2 bath apartment for 2 nights. So wish we could have stayed longer! Wonderful property and facilities! Great space inside the apartment with a living room & kitchen between two bedrooms each with their own bath. Location is great, right in the heart of 'downtown' Venice and only 3 blocks walk to beautiful beach. Very... More

This place hit my expectations at 100%. First it is not the Hyatt. I was looking for a comfortable place with a small sitting area to relax. unit 10 met it perfectly. Thevery small pool outside was great with more focus on the lounge chairs to sit or read in the sun. Bikes to peddle to the beach and an... More

Opinions are based on what you expect. I brought my wife here on a business trip and we'll not return to this facility. The pool photo on Trip Advisor seems deceptive. The pool area is actually very small. Unit #3 was also small and so close to other units that I could hear the sound of the adjacent A/C machine... More

We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Every year at this time we spend time going through all of the units taking care of the items that we cannot get done during our busy times. Being that we are a small family run business and do not have a large staff of workers,... More

We stayed 9 nights at the Venice Ave. location and really loved it. Within walking distance to beach and downtown shopping. Super clean and Management and staff was wonderful. Bed was excellent but needs better pillows. Would definately recommend the Venice Beach Villas. Villa #11 was the best of them all. Pool was very clean.
