A collage of a cottage
Much like the Venice neighbourhood it belongs to, this bright, airy home is an eclectic trove of treasures. And just like Venice, one could spend an afternoon wandering through and taking in all that there is to see – every room is filled with visual delights. Relax in the picturesque back garden, or, seeing as you’re just a short distance from the beach as well, gorgeous Pacific sunsets may make you wish you’d packed your easel.
Your host is an artist in her own right: her jewellery designs catch many eyes and adorn many limbs. Among her creative forebears are inventors, composers, and others that have added lush colours to her perspective and palette. Her taste, in work as well as at home, is a delicate patchwork of tone, era, and influence.
Entering through the front garden gate, you cross the lawn up onto a cute veranda overlooking the potted garden. Inside you’ll find a living room illuminated by the skylight in the high vaulted ceiling.
You’ll be impressed by the clean aesthetic of the marble-countered kitchen with its checkered-tile floor. And whether you’re cooking or being cooked for, diners can be served via the pass-through. Upstairs the comfy bedroom is well-stocked with novels and smaller works to enjoy, but a red painting by your host’s grandmother is the definitive centrepiece. The office, warmed by timber hues and embellished with iron and brass, opens into the lush back garden.
The larger landscape
In Venice, whether your pleasure is the beach, fine dining or specialty shops, you’ll find you’re only five minutes away from them. Feel free to rent a bike beach side to enjoy all the neighbourhood has to offer.
There is ample street parking outside the home, but street sweeping occurs on Mondays and Tuesdays, so cars will not be allowed on the street then. The host has off street parking for one car at the back of the house.
There is no air conditioning in this home. Let us know if you'd like some fans for your stay.
Two adorable poodle mixes live in this home. While they are hypoallergenic and will not be present during guest stays, guests with severe allergies may find this home unsuitable.
This home is exclusively for adults.
