Description

This stunning contemporary stand-alone studio with sleeping alcove is just steps from Venice Beach. It has a spectacular loft ceiling, hardwood floors and small kitchenette. Located in a prime location, tucked away just 50 yards off the famous Venice boardwalk and the beach, it is nonetheless still extremely private and quiet. This one-of-a-kind 500sf home was written up in the LA Times and the NY Times for its architectural merit. It is also featured in the coffee table book "Small Urban Interiors".

The adventure begins with the unique entrance. You approach up a set of stairs and across a redwood bridge to your private front door. Enter into a room filled with light streaming through the many carefully placed windows and skylights. A set of French doors opens to a balcony facade with side ocean view. The angles worked into the design allow light to playfully fill the space. The cathedral beam ceiling soars to 18ft. The floors are of clear fir hardwood. An L-shaped, built in desk doubles as a dining table and can seat three. The small kitchenette has two stainless mini-refrigerators, microwave, sink, and hot plate. The living area has a 50" 3-D flat screen TV with DVD player and a 7ft. sleeper sofa which opens to a queen size bed. In the evening, multiple dimmers and lighting options allow guests to choose among multiple lighting moods.

A step up leads to the sleeping area, which can be closed off from the rest of the studio with curtains to block out the light for sleeping on the comfortable full sized bed dressed with high count linens. The large bathroom contains a step in tiled shower with rain shower head and a pedestal sink.

The studio also has high speed wireless internet, a thermostat controlled wall heater, and private phone for exclusive guest use, with free unlimited local and long-distance domestic calls. There is a laundry room on the premises. Washer and dryer is found downstairs when you step out of the unit.
Exit the property and you are 50 paces from the center of the boardwalk and the beach.

As most beach properties along the California Coastline, this property is not equipped with an A/C unit. With average beach temperatures ranging from 65 to 75 degrees year round, air conditioning is not generally needed in our beach areas. For our warmer days, each of our beach properties is equipped with portable ventilator fans which, when combined with open windows, allow the fresh ocean air to circulate and cool your property to a very pleasant temperature.

Ambitious architecture, in 2004 when new and shiny, this must have been a sensational place to stay. Run down and used now, I am not recommending a stay. Really needs a full decorative make over

The Ve Architectural studio has great potential due to its location in Venice. Unfortunately, the property was dirty upon arrival. Expect stained bedsheets, towels, grimy sofa and carpet.
If the management would keep up the maintenance and keep the place clean, this would be a great place to stay!

Such a cool location so near to the vivid area of Venice beach but still so quiet. Great architecture, we missed nothing, cool neighbours, a surprising and sensational discovery!

Everything was good, the space and distribution.
But the wifi service sucks, doesnt connect at all.
Other thing, If you have a rental car, thank about it first before selecting this property, because it doesnt have parking space and all the parkings near by have an excesive tariff.

Had a lovely stay in the VE Architectual Studio while in Venice. The place was perfect and came with all of the necessities! Amazing location. Global Homes made the stay even more amazing by making sure that I was taken care of. The Internet was not connecting when I arrived and someone personally came over to fix it. They also lent me a brand new bicycle even though it wasn't part of the contract and when I was leaving and couldn't get into my next rental until 3 pm that day, they offered to keep my luggage at their office! It is rare to revive service like that from anyone. I will be sure to rent my next vacation home through Global Homes Again!

1. Room was very dirty. For example in the bathroom there was a shelf full of black dirt and hairs that looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in months. The bathroom floor tiles need to use soft scrub or similar to get rid of grey grit, etc. . The place needs a redo. The furniture and rugs were stained , the floors need to be sanded and restained etc.

The apartment is very stylish and comfortable. The location is great, steps from the Pacific. Being at the beach, we walked the beach, with outings for some meals. We especially liked Zinque's happy hour that featured small plates as well as drinks. And the breakfast at Three Squares with pastries from their bakery next door. We also went to the Getty Villa -- well-worth the short drive, and even had lunch on their terrace.
My sister was with me, and we wanted to sleep separately, one of us on the wide couch. There were no linens for the couch, and I called Global for linens. Sheets were delivered but no blanket. I called again and a blanket was delivered and the tv, which for us was indiosyncratic, was fixed so we could watch it. Some of the amenities listed in the Global book were not in the apartment, including extra linens, towels, beach towels, and things under the kitchen sink, if needed.
I'd read about the NYTimes article on the apartment that said there were sweeping views of the ocean, which was what I'd expected. Instead, buildings had since grown up that blocked all views except of other buildings. As a result, all the windows except the skylight are frosted, so the apartment has quite an enclosed feeling. The bathroom is large and light, and the living area also gets good illumination during the day through frosted glass and the skylight, and at night the interior lighting is excellent in all the rooms. There is no parking space, so that means paying attention to street signs and moving the car when necessary. I never had trouble finding a place to park but you have to be alert and responsible about where you leave your car.
We'd rent this place again.

The architectural studio was a great feel good space. The sun through the sky lights was delightful. Easy to walk to Santa Monica pier or the Venice Canals. Easy drive to the Getty Museums and more. The bed was comfortable. My only reservation was the hot plate for cooking. We like to cook. It was doable, just awkward. When we first arrived, the floors were not clean. The property management sent someone out right away to take care of it. Would stay again.
