A Scenic Guide to Venice Beach, California

The vibes we should all be trying to channel on our weekends and vacation days include something along the lines of being tucked away in a romantic cottage in a quiet backyard under the California sun, with nowhere to go that you can't get to by bike or by foot.

And thanks to this 400-square-foot "mini-me," that dream can become reality.

Located in the ideal Venice, California area, this whimsical guest home is a five-minute bike ride away from the infamous Abbot Kinney Boulevard, right alongside Venice Beach.

You'll be able to take in all the liveliness and culture that you want while still being able to seclude yourself and step away with just a few pushes of your pedals.

The quaint home looks like a Hollywood mansion shrunk to a dollhouse size. Wide French doors, detailed black and white checkered flooring, intricate windows and a patio make this tiny home more like a tiny estate in and of itself.

You have to see this micro mini-mansion to believe it:

Perhaps one of the coolest features of the home is that the couch and coffee table in the main living space are actually a converted prison bed. However, criminal activity is not encouraged.

The kitchen consists of butcher-block countertops paired with a butcher-block table top with high-top stool seating.

When it's time to step outside, spend your afternoons sitting on the back porch with a gorgeous view of the wide backyard, shaded by weeping willows and complete privacy.

There's a bathroom inside with indoor plumbing, but if you're feeling like living the laid-back Cali lifestyle to the fullest, rinse off under the whimsical outdoor shower surrounded by ivy and vine.
