Just a short walk from Venice's charming canals, this home is a fabulous open-plan pad, brimming with character and ideal for a romantic retreat or a solo sojourn. It's been decorated with flair – we especially love the art cluster wall and book collection. At the same time, the private patio is a lovely spot to peruse through those art books. Located in the garden of the owner's main house, you have your own private entrance to come and go as you please. It's just as well, as this home is ideally placed to enjoy the best Venice has to offer. In no more than a fifteen-minute walk, you can be strolling past the quirky characters that inhabit Venice's iconic boardwalk, as well as the mulling over which of the plentiful nearby restaurants and bars you're going to head to later along Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Favourites include Venice mainstay, The Tasting Kitchen for cracking cocktails, and chef Evan Funke's Felix, which serves up some of the best pizza and pasta on the West Coast. Fancy exploring further afield? Hire a bike and pedal-power yourself to the storied Santa Monica Pier in less than twenty minutes, or up to Pacific Palisades in half an hour.
