Good vibrations Downtown Venice’s refined sensibilities are well-known, but its beachside location adds an altogether more laidback spirit. And inside Brooks Avenue II you’ll find your surroundings are just as easy-going, a grand walnut kitchen and patterned rugs recalling the swinging ‘60s. But it's far from outmoded. Sail across its four floors and you’ll also find contemporary white fireplaces, chrome bar stools and vibrant travel posters. With three airy bedrooms there’s room for the whole gang to groove, or if you’d prefer to take your monkeyshines further afield, the bars and restaurants of vibrant Abbot Kinney are within an easy stroll. Hang ten Your hosts are a tubular twosome who divide their time between LA, London and New York. Their collection of travel posters attests to their wanderlust, though they’re happiest when California dreamin’. All summer long The scooped plastic Eames chairs of the dining table and bedroom perpetuate the ‘60s motion, while wooden floors speak of the rolling dunes. In the bedrooms, splashes of colour come from bright rugs and framed vintage posters, while the master bathroom’s freestanding bath holds Jacuzzi jet surprises. Catch waves or rays at the nearby beach, and when the surf’s out return home to the communal, vertical firepit in the outdoor entertainment area with its cheerful, orange-topped wicker seating.
