My place is a studio apartment on the 1st floor of a 4 unit building, which is just half a block from the boardwalk, beach, windward circle, skatepark and muscle beach!! 10 minute walk to the Venice Pier!
The neighborhood is very lively with lots going on all of the time. If you are very sensitive to noise, this neighborhood is not ideal. This is an extremely centrally located place right in the middle of everything Venice has to offer.
