This was our second visit. We love this place. The house is very comfortable and homey. We will be back in the future.

I have stayed here on several occasions, and I must say it is a spectacular experience. The accommodations are 5 star for sure. You walk out the door and you are on the beach of the Pacific Ocean. The owner is so attentive. I have traveled the World, and this is as great as any 5 star Hotel I have ever stayed in. A vacation spot that should be on everyones bucket list.

We loved this place so much that it was difficult to leave. Very kid friendly with beach toys to play with. Clean, comfortable and the best location imaginable! We hope to come back next year! Thank you, Robin!

The house is unbelievable and the views are even better. The owner of the house is awesome.

What a great vacation we had. The house is exactly as described and more. It is so comfortable and has a real homey feel to it. There is tons of storage! The location is perfect. Short walking distance to the right is “colorful” Venice with all its vendors and to the left are great shops and restaurants just steps away. We ate C&O twice and loved it (Italian food). The view is magnificent! Everything you need is provided. Robin has thought of everything. You’ll love biking into Santa Monica Pier and Promenade. We are a family of 5 and had plenty of room. You will LOVE it here!

We stayed for two weeks in March and had a wonderful time. The location is world class and Casa Karmina offers all the amenities and goodies you want when you stay away from home. It is a place we can recommend to everybody and sure we will return. Robin is a perfect host and takes care about everything.

What a wonderful location, view and host (both Robin and Peter are great) I would love to keep this place my secret, so I could come back anytime I wanted to – but the truth is – secrets like this never stay secret! Already trying to plan our next visit for the summer.What an amazing place to stay – the location is walking distance (literally steps) to several restaurants, shops, the pier, and the Venice Boardwalk. The view is better than the pictures provided (which are good), but you don’t really get the sense of HOW good it is until you can sit on the covered 2nd or open 3rd story floors and watch your kids playing in the sand. As people pass below you – you kinda feel like a rockstar sitting on your very own piece of heaven!! (or sitting in your own large hot tub) Really! It is truly spectacular and we didn’t want to go home!! I would recommend this place to anyone/everyone – however I am afraid it might get booked for the times we would like to come!! Seriously – thank you to Robin and Peter for making our Spring Break so wonderful!!

Casa Karmina is a spectacular beautiful house located right on the beach on the border of Venice and Marina del Rey. Every window has beautiful spectacular views of the ocean. The location is ideal if you wish to see celebrities or if you just want to “vege” on the beach waiting for the next sunset. There is something magical here for every member of your family! We just arrived home, I will be working on my dad for our next trip. Thank you Robin and family!

My family has had a wonderful time staying at Casa Karmina. Casa K is a gorgeous house overlooking the Pacific, providing the words most spectacular views. Awesome location. Sand at your door steps, just a few miles from the Santa Monica Pier. This is the perfect house for an active family with kids. All the amenities you could ever want are provided by the owner – hot tub, hammock, outdoor shower, bikes, paddle and tennis rackets, surf board, boogie boards, sand toys, frisbies, bats, balls, I could go on and on. I can’t think of one single thing that they do not provide. We had a fantastic time and hope to visit again! Thank you Robin and family

This is a perfect spot for a family reunion! There was plenty of space for our large family to be very comfortable. We were able to feel so relaxed and “at home” with plenty of dishes and cookware, a very quiet washer and dryer, a great movie selection, a nicely kept yard, and plenty of chairs and sofas. We enjoyed being so close to the beach – the little kids made good use of the beach toys and we appreciated the outdoor shower with warm water. We also loved the upstairs deck with the hot tub. The view is beautiful! Robin was very attentive to our needs and friendly. Thanks!

What a wonderful place!! with a perfect location!! Our family of 6 & baby loved the 4 days here. Having the bikes, roller blades and beach bats & balls is fantastic, along with the comforts of home. Thank you Robin for all your help with our lost passport! We loved being here.

To celebrate Granny’s 70th birthday. Your charming home afforded memories that will be with us always. Of all the comforts, the bikes meant the most. No, it was the hot tub. No, it was the hot shower. Oh, that sofa. Terrace dining to accommodate it was definitely the sofa. Thank you for being there when we needed you, Robin.

The Kosta family (minus John III plus Nadja) had a fantastic mini-reunion here in Venice. Thank you for all your kindness and hospitality. We loved the beach, hot tub, roof deck, bikes and walked everywhere. Thanks, and hope to see you again.


February 22, 2011

We had a great time – we found something new and surprising everyday! Your “supplies” were wonderful! The wagon was great for evening walks to the restaurants – the beach toys, chairs and towels were perfect – it seems you really thought of everything – the piano was an extra surprise so our grandson did not miss his practices and we loved hearing him play. Your facilities are beyond compare!


February 22, 2011

Dear Robin, Writing with my red “marking” pen, I would just like to express my sincere appreciation for your hospitality and your friendship. It was a rare pleasure to meet you and your wonderful daughters. Both me and Rosy truly appreciate genuine and creative people and feel privileged to count you among our friends. Thanks for letting us make your our 1st of many sushi dinners! Of course, the place is also wonderful and beautifully situated with an amazing ocean view… but for me, it’s the warmth of the inhabitants that made it all come alive. All the best to Kelly, Kamille, Petra and Peter, and, of course, to the wonderful hostess, Robin (and sidekick Leo). Cheers and keep it real.

Dear Robin, Your house inspired us in many ways (especially the fireplace…don’t think anyone has used it as much as we did)… Thanks for your hospitality and a chance to feel how beautiful it is to live in Venice. Hope to see you again.

We had a lovely relaxing stay in a beautiful location. We will certainly miss watching the wonderful sunset over the ocean every evening. We hope to come back soon! Thanks, Robin!


February 22, 2011

Thank you for the hospitality and the extra effort to make our stay here at Casa Karmina special. What a wonderful place you have here – anything we desire is right here and we could not ask for better accommodations.


February 22, 2011

Dear Robin, WE have had a lot of fun in your beautiful house. All the best!


February 22, 2011

What a great place, so beautiful and relaxing. Our family had a great time. When we do a beach vacation again, this is the place to come home to.

Dear Robin and “hot tub” family,This was a wonderful vacation at a super spot! Thank you!

We just got back from our trip to Casa Karmina and I wish I could have stayed forever! For a start, the location is unbelievable. We were literally ON THE BEACH! Sunsets every night from the cozy hottub on the rooftop! Robin (the owner) is so hospitable and made sure that every detail of our stay was perfect! The house is utterly charming! We had everything we needed at hand from the full kitchen and it's 1/2 block away from tons of restaurants and shops.

I loved that we parked our car and walked or used the bikes to get around. I was able to relax and rejuvenate before heading back to work. I cannot wait to go back.

Casa Karmina is a unique, fabulous getaway! You can walk to all the restaurants and you can hear the ocean lull you to sleep! The owners are so sweet and thoughtful. The girls are also fantastic singer songwriters! ( You're going to fall in love with them and Casa Karmina!

we just got back from yet another extended weekend at Casa Karmina! WOW! Incredible, again! We really lucked out on the February weather being in the 70's, the sunsets from the deck were unreal and the quiet mornings walking up the coast were amazing! no crowds this time of year.

Casa Karmina IS non-smoking (which we appreciate). The lovely landlady, Robin is attentive to our every need. On both of our visits, we had friends over for a lunch on the deck, a jam session (there are instruments all over), a game night, a dinner as well as a superbowl party. Robin even arranged a special pampering session for me and my daughter on- GET THIS- Sunday morning AT Casa Karmina with her hairdresser. WOW! You can't find service like that anymore. Well, you Casa Karmina!

we can't wait to get back!

Hi Robin! Thanks again for all, it was a great time in Casa Karmina! I can confirm now that there is enough space for 9people in your house!! There were so many impressions....the location, the house, the view, the hottub, the fantastic steaks we grilled on the BBQ, and of course your hospitality will remain a long time after our return in Austria! Thank you for all, Thomas

This house is in such an amazing location.
We are having serious beach withdrawals.
The house was charming and Robin was
truly helpful. We found something for
everyone to love here - from the great running
and biking trails (for mom and dad), to great
restaurants and starbucks around the corner
(mom again!), to great waves for boogeyboarding,
a nice bike ride to play structures and the Santa
Monica pier (the kids), the hot tub (enjoyed by
everyone!), and amazingly fun and talented babysitters right upstairs. This was an awesome vacation, thanks for everything!

We had a WONDERFUL time right on the beach at Casa Karmina. We're from LA so we know how precious and special it is to be able to stay just a few steps from the water. Thank you for your generous hospitality. Justine, our 16 year old daughter had the best time and now has the beach bug. We relaxed and felt like we had a real vacation even though we were only miles from our house. Thanks for everything Robin and for giving us a cherished memory. Hope we'll see you soon! I know we'll find more things we have in common.

This is the first time our family has tried renting from an individual for our Spring Break vacation, instead of staying at a hotel. Wow, did we hit a home run! This CASA KARMINA is all it is advertised to be, AND the land lady is very Cool!

Our past experience with hotel rooms, or suites, always left me (Dad) feeling like there wasn’t enough room, since two girls (mom and teen daughter) take up so much. Well, with CASA KARMINA that was no problem! My guess is that the place is close to 1800 sq ft; Nice big master bedroom suite with walk in closet, 2nd bedroom with plenty of space including a full bed and bunk above, and a cute 3rd BR with a bunk bed (which my 16 year old chose to sleep in because it was fun), two nice baths, good size living room with gas fireplace, flat screen TV, sound system and even a piano; a large kitchen, a deck overlooking the sand, bikers and walkers. We used the bikes, beach equipment, and the hot tub. All was good, or great, as well as new.

Washington Boulevard, which is the dividing line between Venice and Marina del Rey, is a couple hundred feet away and had several nice restaurants which we tried, as well as grocery, liquor, clothing, and assorted other stores; many of we patronized and found more than satisfactory.

All in all CASA KARMINA in Venice Beach is a real find. We are recommending it to all of our friends and look forward to returning ASAP.
