The Common Houses are warm, welcoming, and authentic, without trying too hard. Just like Venice Beach.

As our vision for your perfect vacation home, we offer four unique houses for short term or long term stays. 
In envisioning our "Common House" family, we wanted to capture the essence of our favorite coastal town and allow visitors to live the Venice Beach lifestyle. Convenient locations, stylish decor and gracious hospitality evoke a modern beach welcome. We wanted to create a special rental experience that feels like your custom beach getaway, a place you can visit and feel at home.

Stay with us and enjoy the California beach life


Spend your next L.A. retreat at a charming Venice bungalow!

Our 2-Bedroom/2-Bath home is beautifully designed to celebrate Southern California's indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Big French doors open the entire living room, dining room and kitchen to spacious front porch and back yard. Feel the air and breeze when you chill outdoors, and indulge in comfort and peace when you stay in.



The house is exactly as beautiful as it looks in the photos! We wanted a place that would be comfortable and modern, and where we could have a few friends over for a small dinner party. Oh, and being close to awesome things to do like walking on Abbott Kinney or on the beach, or to Whole Foods a couple blocks away? This place has got it going ON.

An Intimate Beach Cottage


Ideally located on a quiet upscale street in the center of Venice Beach community, our studio is just a few steps to Whole Foods Market and golf course, and a short bike ride to Abbot Kinney, Santa Monica Main Street, and Venice beach.

 Fully remodeled in 2012, the Common Studio is beautifully designed to celebrate Southern California's breezy lifestyle. The studio offers an airy, open space, with doors that open onto your private patio garden.



My stay in The Common Studio was nothing short of terrific - the location was perfect (convenient, but also quiet and private), the space was beautiful and well-maintained, and the hosts were happy to respond to my questions via text or e-mail. The studio itself is equipped with everything you’ll need for your trip, and the meticulous design details make it feel like a home away from home. If you’re looking to base yourself in Venice for your stay, I really can’t recommend this place enough - I’ll definitely be back next time I visit!

Easy Beach Living & Ocean Inspired Lifestyle


Light, airy and in a great, quiet location, the Opposite House is the perfect setting for work or for play. A private yard and and outdoor cooking option inspire enjoying Socal's warm nights. The Opposite House makes for a great location to explore Venice or stay in and enjoy breakfast in the sunny garden. 



We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Opposite house in Venice. The house was super tidy with great decor. It was the perfect amount of space for my family and me. Even the neighborhood was pleasant as we walked to get coffee each mornings. Our host was very easy to contact & really helpful! I would stay here again & again as it was close to everything! I never wanted to leave that beautiful little home!

Stay at the Ella House and enjoy the California beach life to the fullest! 

Fully-remodeled in June of 2012, the 2-Bedroom / 2-Bath Ella House is beautifully designed to celebrate Southern California's indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Big windows bring in plenty of natural light to the spacious living room and dining room areas. The functional kitchen is equipped with retro countertop and cabinets as well as brand new appliances. The clean and classic California style front yard is as equally welcoming as the indoor space. 



We had a fabulous stay at this house. It is clean and well kept. The beds and couch were very comfortable and we felt ‘at-home’ in this home away from home.
