The space

This dreamy guest house was designed by a prominent Venice artist who's known for his elaborate glass design. It's a sexy cozy space with a full bath, dining area, kitchen equipped with everything you need to make and serve yummy meals, a gorgeous glass sitting room with a twin day bed to lounge with a good book, and an exotic tropical garden. It is used solely for guest purposes, and is unencumbered by the owners personal items.

Located on a quiet one-way street, this little piece of heaven is located a 1/2 block from the glamorous Abbot Kinney Boulevard and 4 blocks from world famous Venice Beach.
