“Would be lovely on a warm sunny day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

We stayed at Venice Beach House for one night in March 2012. The house has a lot of character but is in need of some serious updating in terms of drapery, carpet, linens. My husband, daughter and I stayed in the Aimee McPherson suite at the back of the house. It needs freshening up to get the musty feel out of it. I felt like I was staying in my Grandma's basement. Also, beware that the yahoos party until 3am and are always walking past the house howling at the top of their lungs (perhaps this is what Venice Beach is always like??)
I think this property would be lovely on a warm sunny day, as the grounds are beautiful and the beach is a stone's throw away. Unfortunately we had a cold, drizzly day. It is in a good location, you can walk anywhere you would like to go in Venice Beach and the price is right.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms looked cheerier and sunnier than the rooms at the back of the house.

As long as you remember that this is a beach house, built in the first ten years of the 20th century, then you probably won't be disappointed. It is a period house, very relaxed, slightly eccentric, only yards from Venice beach. We had the Aimee Macpherson Suite for 3 nights in April; the room was very large but the decor was a bit tired. Breakfast itself was fine but there should be more tables made available for guests. Overall we enjoyed staying there.

The Venice Beach House is a delightful escape just a block off the bustling Venice boardwalk. Despite its proximity to the beach, it is a quiet oasis, full of entirely charming Victorian detail. Each room has a historical theme and our room (the Abbott Kinney, after the founder of Venice Beach) had a sweet tiny balcony that overlooked the verdant courtyard. The staff was helpful, breakfast was fine, and it was a wonderful getaway!

We stayed here for the last part of our honeymoon and i have to say, it was such a treat, it was a pity we couldn't stay longer than the 2 nights we were booked in. The staff are really helpful and the location is perfect if you want to be amongst the Venice Beach vibe. This was my first time to LA so I was thrilled with having the beach 2 seconds away. The breakfast is great and the female staff are all very friendly and nice and helpful. One thing about LA is the distance it takes to get around, so taxi rides can be expensive if you don't have your own hire car. We bused it a few times which was fine. I didn't think i'd like LA as much as i did and am keen to head back. If i do, i definitely would look into staying at Venice Beach house again. Oh i forgot to mention how beautiful the bathroom is too!

How charming, when you just arrived after a 1hr taxi ride from Downtown, to step through the gate of flowers and step in to this little green paradise in Venice. I would say a 20sec walk from the beach.
If you like the busy boardwalk and the crowded places, than this is probably not your place to stay. For us (me and my girlfriend) it was a great relief after staying a couple of days in downtown.
The rooms are stylish decorated and very clean. The bathrooms look beautiful! Very classic. We even had a very small balcony to drink some cold beers late at night. Service was good and friendly and were there when you needed them. Breakfast a little bit minimal, but that's a minor detail.

Room Tip: We had the Aboot Kinney room, which had a small balcony. Perfect to sit together with a nice cold be...

Nice location steps to Venice beach. The bars are inches away. The rooms are dated and need to be modernized. Location Location Location...........

We were not able to take a sumer vacation this year, so we decided to have a nice weekend get away. We felt like we were staying at a friend's home for the weekend. The staff was very friendly, and they are quite knowledgable about the area. They were able to answer all of our questions and they made great recommendations. We have stayed here before, and know we know why we decided to come back. It is a wonderful place, and a great value for the area.

Room Tip: We have stayed in two different rooms upstairs and they were both wonderful. Pier Suite is large wi...
