Located less than two miles from world famous Venice Beach, our private guest house is situated at the rear of our property and includes a half bathroom and kitchenette. An outdoor, hot water shower is just at the rear of the guest house and next to a Jacuzzi hot tub amidst lush landscaping with a serene zen-like sensibility. French doors at the front of the guest house open to a Spanish-tiled patio and fountain. Guests can enjoy their morning coffee or evening snacks and drinks al fresco seated at the umbrella-ed patio table adjacent to the Spanish fountain. Guests may easily enter and exit the property from a gate at the front of the property.
Guests have use of the entire guest house, which is completely detached from the main house. The guest house is nearly 600 square feet and has a combination of hardwood and stone tile flooring. A large sofa pulls out to convert to a queen-sized bed, outfitted with Marimekko linens. The mattress is new as of July 2012 and is a Memory Foam sofa mattress that is topped with Plushfoam. The closely knit structure makes more body contact, relieving pressure points and providing comfort and support, while at the same time absorbing the shock of body movement, allowing you to move freely. Per the manufacturer, it is the same mattress used in luxury hotels and resorts in the United States.
Bar stool style counter and eating area are adjacent to the kitchenette which is equipped with a refrigerator, sink, coffee maker, electric tea kettle, plates, bowls, glasses, coffee cups, tea pot, and utensils. The kitchenette is stocked with assortments of tea, coffee, juice, soda and bottled water. The guest house is immaculately kept. Linens, towels, pillows, blankets, shampoos, conditioners, soaps, etc. are provided. High-speed wireless internet is available on the property. A 42" HDTV is available in the guest house, along with hundreds of channels via Verizon Fios, streaming Netflix, a stereo tuner, Blu-Ray DVD player, compact disk player, and in-ceiling speakers. Plentiful street parking is available with no restrictions.
The property is located in a quiet residential neighborhood and is less than a five minute walk to major bus lines to the beach and elsewhere. Nearby destinations include the famed Abbot Kinney Boulevard with its eclectic assortment of restaurants, shops and (on certain nights) a vast array of gourmet food trucks; Venice Beach and boardwalk, home of the famed "Muscle Beach," food, shopping, and a wide array of interesting characters; the beautiful Venice canals, modeled in the spirit of those of the neighborhood's namesake in Italy; Santa Monica's Main Street, home to a wide array of restaurants and shopping; Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade, home to a wide array of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment; and the famed Santa Monica Pier, home to an amusement park and restaurants and adjacent to the Santa Monica Beach. LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) is 15 minutes to the south.
