Best kept secret
Amazing property and location!! Short drive to beach and awesome neighborhood. Venice is such a quaint town and is my new favorite place for the beach. My kids were so jealous and we are planning a return trip. Amy is so easy to communicate with and is an awesome host!!
Awesome place to stay, Close to everything and very nice. We would definitely book again.
