We were in town for a family wedding. My immediate family (6 adults) stayed in this house. It was very comfortable and roomy! We walked to a lot of places, however the 2-car garage came in quite han… More
Thank you for the nice review. Sorry about the booking was challenging, but FlipKey is not user friendly. Just curious, did you have a problem accessing the property with the lockbox that is located behind the front gate???
It was nice to have a house as a base for touring around, but my knees are bad and it is perched on a hill so I couldn't very well walk anywhere. The owner was helpful and did her best for us, but ho… More
This review is not for this property.
The guest stayed in this much larger house with her husband and dog for 2 days, because the smaller place became unavailable, and we were able to accommodate her here.
This listing is titled "Hilltop Beach House", so the face that her knees hurt going up a hill was not any fault of our description! It is a comfortable older vintage beach house, like so many in Venice.
It is cleaned by a well regarded professional cleaning company that we have had no complaints about.
Nobody lives here full time. If she wanted a better value for 2 nights with a dog, she should have booked the Travel Lodge on Pico Bl., 3 miles from the beach. That might be "Hotel Clean", because it is a HOTEL!
This woman is also a professional BLOGGER and she should be required to disclose this fact when she makes her reservation. Most hosts are not prepared to deal with online reviews by such a critic. I read her blog, and there is not much nice about anyplace or any meal! Perhaps a government post would be a better choice for this type of reviewer.
Please remove this review as it is inaccurate.
Apartment and location exceeded our every expectation! Beautiful and quiet pedestrian street with the beach a block and a half one way and the absolutely gorgeous canal neighborhood the other. Beach … More

I stayed here with my 12 yr old and sister in-law for 1 week. The stay for them was fun all days and business for me for 3 and fun the rest. The condo was totally fine with accommodating all of us. Th… More
I am sorry this guest was not entirely happy.
If I had been told there was an issue at the time, it would have been speedily resolved. It would definitely have been preferable if this had been raised immediately rather than many months later.
I am always prepared to send the cleaning company supervisor over and have the apt re-cleaned if anything is missed or unsatisfactory but we have never had this issue raised before.
The windows do of course open and no other guest has ever been unable to open them. We have never at any time mentioned cross breezes, probably the guest is thinking of a different apartment.
I am very sorry they were not completely satisfied and I wish I had been informed at the time.
We stopped at this house, which is four apartments with a roof terrace. We rented the top floor which is two apartments which can be opened up into a four bedroom/three bathroom apartment. We had a … More
My two daughters and two grandchildren loved this spot. We were on the second floor and had a lovely breeze through the apartment. It included a room fan, extra tv tables, lawn chairs, beach hat and u… More
