This Californian bungalow is not only charming inside and out, but it’s just one block from the iconic Abbot Kinney Boulevard and a five-minute drive to Venice Beach. Before you even enter the home, you’ll be welcomed by lush foliage and shrubs flowing over the porch. Inside, find calm and warmth in the living space, with natural woods, a plush brown sofa, and fresh white walls. Overall the decor has a snug vibe which is understated and relaxed, perfect for escaping the metropolis and feeling like you’re truly at home. In the city of endless summers, the peaceful patio is ideal for fresh fruit and an iced latte in the morning. You could just as easily enjoy this space under the stars, with a chilled Californian wine in hand as you fire up the barbecue. If you manage to leave this tranquil nest, we recommend taking a fifteen-minute stroll to the Venice Canals en route to the beach. And for these sandy afternoons, you’re spoilt for choice with all the beach gear at home – bicycles, bodyboards, coolers, deck chairs, and beach towels are just some of the items your host has on offer for a sun-filled day out.
