Discover A Hidden Gem - Private Venice Guesthouse with Patio
600 Sqft Studio hosted by Ed
2 Guests . 0 Bedroom . 1 Bathroom


This charming, bright, airy, and spacious studio guesthouse, with its Mid-Century Modern furnishings and original art from local artists, provides a tranquil, relaxing atmosphere. Start the day with breakfast at the bistro table under the purple bougainvillea. Whip up a picnic lunch in the full kitchen and spend the day at Venice Beach. Ride the bikes through the Venice Canals or along the bike path to the Santa Monica Pier. Kick back on the shaded patio with your favorite beverage. End the day between 100% cotton linens on a comfortable Zen mattress. Come visit us and live like a local.


Secluded, quiet and comfortable, this large single guest suite is in one of Venice’s best residential neighborhoods. Bright, and airy, the spacious comfort and full kitchen make the Blue Studio perfect for a weekend stay, and ideal for a long-term visit. Conveniently located a short ten-minute walk from Abbot Kinney Blvd’s restaurants, galleries and shops, less than a mile from Venice Beach, it makes an ideal base from which to explore nearby Marina Del Rey, Santa Monica, Playa Del Rey, Malibu and beyond.

Behind the locked entrance gate lies a private, enclosed patio where you can relax in your luxurious 100% cotton terry robes we provide and enjoy your morning coffee, have a meal at the charming bistro table or unwind in the afternoon shade with your favorite beverage.

The large main room features a sleeping area with a Queen-sized bed fitted with a Zen mattress and 400 thread 100% cotton sheets. Mid-century style furnishings and original prints and photographs by local artists create an inviting, calming atmosphere. The 40” HD television includes Roku and Spectrum cable. High-speed WI-FI makes keeping connected quick and easy. Don't worry if you forget your phone charger, we have a multi-phone charger in the house.

The spacious, eat-in kitchen comes equipped with full-sized stove and refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, blender, butcher-block counter tops, natural wood cabinets, and a complete complement of dishes and cookware. Take advantage of the nearby Farmer’s markets and stock up on some of the freshest and most unusual ingredients. If you prefer dining out, head over to Abbot Kinney and sample some of the dozens of restaurants that line this renowned street. From world-class gourmet dining, through an eclectic mix of international cuisines to the most casual bistro, pub, and pizza joint, there is something for everyone.

Inquire about car rental, or better yet, unlock the bicycles, the perfect way to get an authentic Venice experience. Ride through the Marina to Playa Del Rey. Bike to the beach and along the world-famous boardwalk to the Santa Monica Pier. Cruise the neighborhood to Abbot Kinney and explore the diversity of its one-of-a-kind shops and art galleries. Be sure to visit the Venice Canals, the last remnant of Abbot Kinney’s dream.

All cleaning products are eco-friendly and as fragrance-free as possible. We launder the sheets and towels in a fragrance-free, dye-free, hypoallergenic detergent, and the ceramic tile floors throughout keep dust and allergens to a minimum. Of course, there is absolutely no smoking on the premises.

For those spur of the moment travel plans, please ask about our last-minute specials.

Come and sample the diversity that is Venice. Gourmet dining, fine art, endless shopping, warm days and cool evenings. Experience the tranquility of the Blue Studio and make your stay with us truly memorable.

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.
