Our house is located right on the border of the Venice and Mar Vista neighborhoods. We are on a large corner lot (5,600 sf) facing 2 streets and there is a spacious back yard area with plenty of California native plants around the perimeter between the main house and the back house (shown). The back house was designed with California modern and rustic beach house design sensibilities in mind. It is a clean, minimal, hard angled architectural structure with custom cedar wood finishes making it a truly unique California coastal cabin. Some specific design features include: - First floor open living space, approx. 350 sf. - A second floor loft space with garden bed balcony, approx 250 sf. - A custom welded steel floating staircase - Glass Bi-fold door systems on the first and second floors that open up entire space to indoor / outdoor - Small kitchen with Smeg appliances (refrigerator, oven, gas range, dishwasher) and Heath Ceramic tile backsplash - Outdoor garden patio at front entrance with vintage white fireplace - Wet bathroom with sliding barn door and modern fixtures - Outdoor in-ground, 7-person jacuzzi on back deck - Outdoor open fire pit in back yard area - Weber propane grill - Covered car port area - Back deck hammock area with pergola - Interior custom whitewashed cedar panels cover the walls and ceiling - Raw cedar "desk" area under stairs - Custom whitewashed cedar cabinets offer plenty of storage - Murphy bed folds up into wall - High speed WIFI available This is an ideal space for a film or photo shoot.
Everything in the back house is clean (and white for the most part) and custom made, so please keep that in mind when using the space. Please tread lightly and keep things the way you found them. You break it, you buy it! That said, we ask that the rentor provide a security deposit (in the form of a check) for $500 to cover any potential damages. If there are no damages, cool, we will void the check after the space is used. Also, please note that any overtime will be charged at 1.5x our hourly rate.
We have such a great experience at Matt's Beach house cabin. Very well decorated. The host was really nice and responded promptly to all our questions. Super easy going. The place is perfect for small crew. Don't hesitate to rent it, we had a great experience.
My friends and I had SUCH a wonderful occasion shooting at the Zanja house! The coolest architecture and design...truly obsessed! Matt was super kind and was close by in case we needed anything! Would highly recommend this space to anyone who appreciates an natural and beauty aesthetic! Hope to come back here some day. :)
Matt was amazing to work with. The space could not be cooler and more picturesque for our filming needs. It looks even better in person with such charming details. Looking forward to using this location again!
Matt was a great host. Checked in on us before, during, and after the shoot to make sure we were happy with everything. The location was amazing. Super modern, clean, good vibe, and exactly what we needed for our brand!
Couldn't have asked for more here. The space was set up and ready to go, as described. Had lots of amenities available for our photoshoot and hosting our small crew. We also had the pleasure of meeting Matt who was warm, welcoming and accommodating. Highly recommend!
