Experience California's answer to Venice, Italy at this country chic guest house with an outdoor deck. Situated on a serene, traffic-free island, this 1928 cottage combines pinewood hardware, bespoke textiles, and the latest modern conveniences. Los Angeles's coastal town of Venice is well known, but few are familiar with the quaint residential neighborhood within Venice known as the Venice Canals Historic District. Built along a series of canals, it's responsible for inspiring the city's name. The picturesque community features upscale and meticulously maintained homes and gardens, many with their own docks and boats. It's fun to walk and gawk, but most visitors don't get to come inside, and anyone interested in paddling the canal has to bring their own boat.

However, this special Airbnb find lets you try out living like a local for a few days. The house has all the usual modern comforts, including Wi-Fi, as well as extras like a jetted tub in the bathroom and a barbecue. But the most fun is visitors' access to the house's private dock and boats, including a canoe, rowboats, and kayaks. All that, and you're also mere blocks from the Pacific and all the shopping, food, culture, and attractions that Venice has in spades.

Written about in Business Insider Magazine May 6, 2021 issue as a very special Air bnb in Venice!

My husband and I love living at the beach. We have a very active lifestyle and the canals are a great place to relax. We are both big travelers. We speak Spanish, Italian, and English and enjoy meeting people from all over the world. We are also big foodies and wine people. It is exciting to assist our guests with finding great restaurants to go to, as well as popular tourist attractions. I like to oil paint as a hobby and my husband is a runner who has completed over 30 marathons. Please feel free to contact us and ask any questions that you wish about the house or the area. You will love it here!!
