We feel lucky to live on a compound of cottages in the middle of the Oakwood area of Venice Beach which feels like a community. We cannot think of a better place to live.


The compound itself is made up of seven units, four of them 40’s cottages and two of those are now offered as vacation rentals. The owners, Allan, a Canadian film-maker and Chiyoko, a Japanese writer, live on the site and have created a way of living they are happy to share.

Each unit overlooks a small private sitting garden and larger communal gardens are nearby. Various tables and fire pits invite intimate or expansive al fresco dining. A Balinese daybed is for chilling or outdoor sleeping.

The compound was recently on the famous Venice House & Garden Tour and the local newspaper called it ‘most enticing’. Also it was used as a location for several films.

Vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors. Fully furnished for elegant living, the kitchen is equipped with an espresso machine, filtered water, martini glasses, etc. A queen sized bed, linens and towels are provided, free do-it-yourself laundry, free high speed internet and cable, free loan of bicycles, free fully enclosed parking for one car, DVD and book library and a breakfast bar. Friendly and arty neighbors. Cats and non barking dogs are welcomed. If in doubt about barking the answer is "So sorry but the peace and quiet of the other guests is paramount."
The property is in the center of Venice’s semi-secret Oakwood area which has the highest number of artists per capita outside of NYC's Soho area. It is a neighborhood where locals have pride of place and greet each other as they walk, skate and bike around.

Local attractions are Gold’s flagship gym and across the street is (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). Dozens of yoga and Pilates studios are within stretching distance. Don’t miss what’s left of the canals which gave Venice its name. The brand new skateboarding park is next to the original Muscle Beach. Some say the biggest local attraction is the beach others say it’s the swarming bikini boardwalk next to it. Both are five blocks away. Oakwood is anchored by Abbot Kinney Boulevard (named after the visionary who built Venice as a summer get-away from Los Angeles.) This strip was recently called ‘the hippest street in America’ by GQ. The ‘next big thing’ is nearby Rose Avenue where healthy food and drink is the agenda.

Neighborhoods to the north are trendy Santa Monica, laid-back Malibu and rustic Topanga. To the east is Lincoln Boulevard with ‘the sexiest Whole Foods on planet earth” sez the LA Times. Also a plethora of pot shops and tattoo emporiums. To the south are Marina Del Ray for sailing and Culver City for galleries. The Santa Monica Freeway takes you downtown in 25 minutes and the Pacific Coast Highway can drop you at the airport in 15 minutes.

What else? Venice Love is a certain relaxed funkiness, it’s ten kinds of fruit trees, nine chimes, seven kinds of bamboo, six fountains, three fire pits, two BBQ grills and a brown hen who lays eggs. It’s all very Venice Beach so it’s not for everybody but it may be perfect for the right person.

Allan and Chiyoko are lovely people and my sister and I loved staying at their place. The space is relaxing and peaceful while being only a short walk to Venice Beach. The neighborhood was quaint and it was close to shops and funky cafes. The apartment we stayed in was comfortable, and had everything we needed including beach towels, bikes, and a full functioning kitchen. If you want to stay in a hip location with easy access to Venice Beach and Abbot Kinney this is a perfect spot. We would definitely stay here again!

Allen was a great host. The place is so cozy. The bed is very comfortable and everything was just as described. There are numerous other neighbours and pets in the compound which made it fun. I would book again in an instant.

We had a great time at Allan and Chiyoko's place. We loved the cosy cottage and the compound was very charming and full with cute dogs. We had breakfast out in the sun every morning - amazing! We wished we could have stayed longer. Thanks for hosting us!
