My 5 y.o. daughter goes to school in Venice, I live in Santa Monica, and I used to work in Marina del Rey. When it comes to these three beach communities I have seen a lot of movement and change. Please contact me if you would like to learn more about the area. FYI, the apartment vacancy you are looking at seems quite nice.

According to Trulia's Crime Map, it looks like some areas are safer than others. Take a look at the map here: http://www.trulia.com/real_estate/Los_Angeles-California/crime/
Hope that helps, please let me know if you have any additional Venice questions!

Yes Venice is safe to live, but as living anywhere you have to be careful.
Decades ago it was different and Venice was the true picture of the wild wild west by the beach, where anything goes, but that wild spirit has been tamed down quite a bit as the baby boomers head into nursing homes.
I used to live in Venice, as well as Santa Monica, Malibu, Beverly Hills, West & East & North Hollywood.

Venice is a great and unique area. If you are unsure if you would feel safe or comfortable there, I would suggest driving around there and checking out the area!
Please feel free to call me at (310) 717-1321 or JamieTian@RodeoRE.com with any questions or concerns. I would be happy to send you a list of available properties or set up an appointment to view any properties you are interested in at no cost.
Venice has a flavor all it's own and has undergone a dramatic transformation from shabby, to chic in the last ten years. For actual safety information, you would have to contact the local police department and get their statistics.I would say you have to take the same precautions as in any populated city.
If you love unique places and art, Venice is the place for you!
