Home away from home, but on the beach!
We had a very relaxing stay. Vicky was a super host by accommodating our every need and replying to emails extremely quickly. The home is literally steps from the beach - you can see the ocean from the living room! There are cafes and restaurants within walking distance. The home is very spacious and bright and I must mention that the beds are super comfortable. The only thing I would suggest is to pack your own shampoo and body soap. Other than that, you are all set for a great vacation!
Enjoyed hosting you Judy! Thank you so much.
We had a great stay at this house.
Our experience was very pleasant. Vicky was great about seeing if we needed anything and when I text with a question, she answered immediately. Our only issue was we had an oversized vehicle so parking was tight but that is something that would only affect a few people. I would definitely recommend it.
Im so glad you enjoyed your stay. The garage has 2 spots for our guests but will not fit oversized vehicles but WILL fit SUV. Thank you so much for your kind words. We enjoyed having you stay with us too.
4 Times in 4 Years
Love visiting this area..... beach access, swimming, surfing, bicycling, jogging, restaurant dining, and more... or just interested in the stay-at-home-feel for some rest & relaxation..... if any of that's your cup-of-tea, then DolphinHouse provides the near perfect experience / convenience to a variety of day-to-day activities that we enjoy.
Vicky is just wonderful and accommodating to work with, and has made our choice to return, and return, and return an easy one.
Awesome location - awesome owner
100 feet from the beach -- super comfy -- and Vicky was so helpful -- what more can you ask for - can't wait to come back
Fair but look elsewhere
In short: This apartment isn't bad but it has significant issues, and there are so many great options in Los Angeles, especially on the beach, that it's worth at least looking at other options.
Firstly, though, the positives:
--Stayed at "dolphin house" for two weeks; property was clean and well-maintained
--Location is not actually in Venice (just over the border in Marina del Rey) but is a bloc from the beach, which is great
--The common room area is comfortable and well-designed
Unfortunately in our experience these were balanced out by significant negatives:
-Sound insulation is non-existent between this unit and the one below (and also between the rooms). You can hear everything and they can hear everything, and they complained about people simply walking around upstairs. Really need to install carpets or sound dampening insulation; this was the biggest problem.
-The upstairs is not at all enclosed (which is as depicted, but a negative), so privacy is limited, and it did not have a pull out,
-The owner changed the listed price after we contacted her, although she eventually agreed to the originally listed price
-Because the unit is actually in Marina Del Rey, it's not in the heart of Venice Beach. It's not a long walk to get to things but it is a walk
-The garage is the smallest two car garage I've ever seen; do not expect to fit anything bigger than an economy sized car without substantial difficulty
We incurred EXTENSIVE damage from this renter who became enraged when he had to pay for it. This is retaliation for damage to all our chairs and stains on our couch and broken ceramics.
Home Away From Home
From the very moment we arrived... we knew we had made the right choice.
Dolphin House offered most all the amenties we were accustomed to when at home... comfortable living room in which to relax and watch TV / use WiFi, fully equipped kitchen, more than adequate sleeping arrangements (for two or four or six adults), beautifully appointed and soothing-aqua-colored Master Bedroom, terrific shower facilities ('specially the "newly remodeled" bath), 2-car garage, beach gear (chairs, towels, umbrella).
Location... location... location...
Can't beat Dolphin House for its proximity to everything that's happening locally.
Area restaurants and bars (highly recommend Mercedes Grille, Casa Ado Ristorante and Venice Ale House), coffee houses, farmer's markets, grocery stores, bicycle path to Venice Beach, a short drive to the 3rd St Promenade (Santa Monica), Malibu, Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills and Westwood (UCLA Campus).
Oh, and let's not forget to mention... once you exit the Dolphin House front steps, in less than a minute you can be standing on the beach, and after a short walk across the sand... you can be swimming in the Pacific or watching the dolphins, surfers, sailboats and parasailers. In the evening, head down to watch the gorgeous California sunsets on the horizon, or stroll along the shore while the moonlight radiates off the surf.
In closing, cannot add enough kind words to describe Dolphin House owner... Vicky
Although we had actually never met, a great lady to do business with. Treated us like we were old friends... could not have been more accommodating - communicative - attentive to our every need...
Thank you, Vicky, for a truly wonderful and memory-filled 2-week vacation!
Hope to return in 2014
