Venice Beach vs. Bondi Beach

How beachside living in Venice Beach and Bondi Beach compare

As a sexy beachfront haven on the Westside of the city of Los Angeles, Venice Beach is hot property. Located five and a half hours from Silicon Valley, you can nab a freestanding three bedroom architecturally designed home there for the equivalent of $AUD 2.75 mil. This will get you a pimped-out pad, one block east of Main Street and two streets back from the Venice boardwalk.

In the case of 716 Hampton Drive you’re buying a dramatic loft-style home nestled in the vibrant heart of Venice. It’s the kind of place that’s pretty hard to get bored of.

The same kind of money spent here in Sydney will also get a pretty pimped spot on quaint little Bondi Beach, with admittedly less cultural proximity.  In Bondi Beach you have a few options.

At Cox Avenue, Bondi Beach you can nab a three bedroom, two bathroom beachside pad for $AUD 2.65 mil.  This is freestanding home featuring an architectural overhaul, is located on the fringes of Hall Street.

Or if you want to bid little higher, you can get a five bedroom, five bathroom architecturally designed home between Bondi and Tama for around $AUD 3.1 mil. These two seaside locales are really on a par with one another, when you compare bricks and mortar, space and quality of life.
