We have lived in Venice for more than 30 years, and Ed is a Los Angeles native. We love sharing our local knowledge with guests, and have hosted people from around the world. When we do leave home, we go as travelers, not tourists, and are usually treated as locals. We love discovering the hidden spots, local favorites and going 'behind the scenes'. We have found that a smile and a kind gesture are a universal language and can open doors the world over.

While we live in the main house, we completely respect your privacy, and won't bother you at all. If you like, we can suggest things to do and see, both in the Venice/Marina Del Rey area, and all around Los Angeles. We love to cook and eat, and can recommend wonderful restaurants in any price range, and know where all the Westside Farmer's Markets are. Whether it's a museum, nature hike, shopping spree or a unique dining experience, we can help you find the real Venice.

We want your stay to be as comfortable, enjoyable, and memorable as possible and will do whatever we can to make sure it is.
