All of our Venice Beach California properties are fully furnished extended stay suites. Unlike a full service hotel, we do not have room service, a bell boy, concierge or a restaurant on-site, instead our Venice Beach locations go the extra mile to bridge the gap between hotel and home. With incredible ocean views, affordable rates and full kitchens in every apartment we offer guests the chance to live like a local in comfort and style.
Our guests enjoy the fact that we are at the saner end of the Venice Boardwalk which is comprised of many restaurants and hotels and a bit quieter than the southern end or the boardwalk can be very active. We pride ourselves on having the best rooftop terrace of any hotel on the Venice Beach boardwalk. We operate as your home away from home on the beach. We enjoy having families spend their vacation with us, feeling comfortable and at ease.

Q. Is Venice Safe?
A. Venice Beach is a beautiful urban beach community. it has a a very diverse population with a lot of homeless people living just outside multi-million dollar properties. Every type of person, ethnicity and income level is represented here, inlcuding many single women, young hipsters, families with kids and many retirees. If you are coming from another urban environment you will be fine; if you are coming from a more rural, small-town area you may feel a little intimidated. The secured parking garage is an approximate 7-minute walk back to the building. Like in any city, put on your urban face of confidence and you will be fine. Do not feel obligated to respond to panhandlers.
NOTE: In February of 2012 the LAPD started enforcement of the closing of Ocean Front Walk and the Beach from 12.00 midnight to 5.00 am; they are all part of the park system. This has significantly reduced the night time homeless population as they have been forced to move to other locales.
