As a traveler, I know what I need on the road and try to anticipate the same for my guests.
Bay purchased this Guest House in 2001
Why Bay chose Mar Vista
Our guest house was chosen by National Geographic's Traveler of the Year for his recent stay in Los Angeles. We are located in Mar Vista, less than two miles from Venice Beach and in a neighborhood with abundant street parking. Learn more. The guest house is perfectly situated in Mar Vista - Venice Beach close - we hear the fog horns at night and get the ocean cooled air. 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 (named by GQ Magazine as the 'Coolest Block in America') 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.
What makes this Guest House unique
If you are considering staying in Venice, keep in mind that you'll never find a parking space. Located in nearby Mar Vista, less than two miles from world famous Venice Beach and with abundant available street parking, 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. The guest house is private and completely detached from the main house.

Bay is a welcoming and helpful host! Her guest property is cozy beautifully decorated and comfortabl
Did not meet expectations
a. The pull out bed took up all the living space with no space to sit and relax when not in bed.
b. Bed is very uncomfortable and slopes downwards.
c. Hot plate without anything to cook in is hardly commendable.
d. Outdoor shower is not practical in chilly weather. We showered once and afterwards did so at a family members place.
e. There should be guidelines established for people to be able to rent out places in private properties. Hotels certainly have such guidelines.
Private garden setting
This property was easy to arrange. Location is quiet and accessible. Beautiful garden like setting was a welcomed respite at the end of our busy days in LA. We would rent again.
Great place to stay!
Everything was as listed. Bay couldn't have been nicer and the place was perfect! I would definitely go back.
A quiet and relaxing getaway in LA
We enjoyed our stay here... thank you Bay! Just a couple blocks from Venice Blvd., this is a great place for peace and quiet . I walk early mornings- it's about 2 1/4 miles for a stroll to the Venice Beach oceanfront. The pullout bed/ couch is very soft and comfortable. The patio is relaxing, and the hot tub and outdoor shower around back is peaceful, private and wonderful (even in 50 degree weather!). Bay is always available and ready to answer questions or suggest places to go. I would love to come back and stay here again the next time my wife and I are in LA.
Cozy, convenient, fun
Charming little guest house in a quiet neighborhood very convenient to Santa Monica and Venice beach. Walk to neighborhood restaurants. Bay is always available, but no hovering. Outdoor shower under the lemon tree sounds unusual, but was fun. Only caution: if you really, truly need a firm mattress, you’re going to be uncomfortable on the cloud soft bed. We enjoyed it. Thanks, Bay.
