Architectural Gem, Stroll through Canals to Beach! This is a 3 bedroom/2 bath Main House and a separate studio Guest House loft with another bathroom. You can rent either one, or both together. Please note: When the MAIN HOUSE is booked on the calendar, the GUESTHOUSE may still be available, or vice versa. This spacious architectural home is the ultimate Venice hideaway. Located in the heart of Venice, on a quiet tree-lined street, the famous Abbot Kinney and Marina are just steps away. Designed by noted architect, John Porter, with vaulted wood ceilings and plenty of skylights, it's bright and airy, and totally relaxing… In one of the best areas in Los Angeles, California, it's no wonder renowned architect, Frank Gehry, has chosen to build his own home right down the street!
