Location

6 Miles
Nearest Airport
LAX (Los Angeles Int'l Airport)

Car: Not Necessary

HOURS OF FUN IS JUST MINUTES AWAY! We’re located on a treed residential street on the fabulous West side of Los Angeles, in the area of Mar Vista where where Santa Monica, Venice, Marina del Rey and Culver City all meet...

From our lovely 2-bedroom home it's just 5 minutes to the freeways, 6 minutes to the famous Venice Beach and Venice Canals, and 8 minutes to the Santa Monica Pier and Santa Monica promenade.

Top-flight restaurants, cinemas, supermarkets, golf course, parks and the Abbott Kinney antique shops are only 4-minutes away.

And if you drive down our cross street (passing a convenient supermarket and Costco shopping center) you'll arrive at the fabulous beaches of Santa Monica and Venice in less time than it takes to stroll around the block.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2001

About: Entertainment journalist, author and filmmaker. Harvard College graduate. Passions include film, piano, literature (Shakespeare especially), Italy and travel. Speaker of English, Italian, some French and German.

Why Santa Monica:
A TERRIFIC AREA where the traffic and parking is not nearly as congested and stressful as at the beach traffic yet is only minutes away from the ocean. We're also right amongst the cafes, cinemas, boutiques and shopping of the wonderful West side. A great location in what is already a world-class 'destination location.' Lovely backyard and patio, too!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Complementary use of our bikes to ride to the beach or explore the neighborhood -- or simply take the beach bus on the corner. Peaceful and quiet backyard terra-cotta patio (with charcoal BBQ) framed by bougainvillea and fountains looking out onto our lovely backyard garden and fruit trees. Complementary high-speed (6 megabyte) internet & Wi-Fi & cable HDTV. During your home orientation when you arrive, James can also serve as your 'virtual concierge' to help you plan your stay in LA.
