Property description

Charming and comfortable duplex apartment is just 3 blocks from the beach in a quiet neighborhood. The apartment has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath; it is the downstairs unit in a 1920’s beach craftsman duplex.

This light and breezy apartment is a roomy 1,050 square feet. There is a screened in front porch, a washer, dryer and dishwasher. One bedroom has a queen pillow-top bed and the second bedroom has 2 twin beds that can convert to one king size bed. The living room has a new futon couch. Sleeps up to 5. There are 3 TVs with DirecTV all with HBO and other movie channels, one DVR, 2 DVD players, and WIFI Internet access, iPod dock clock radio and iPod mini-stereo.

Great location!
This is your home away from home or a good choice for a business trip. It is just blocks away from everything. Park your car and you may not need it again. You can walk, bike or skate along the beach path. Walk one block to Main Street shops and restaurants. Walking distance to the Santa Monica Pier and to downtown Santa Monica, Palisades Park, and The Promenade: entertainment, shopping, movies, and restaurants.

World-class restaurants are located nearby. The kitchen is well equipped so that you can easily prepare meals at home. Discover seasonal fresh produce at the renowned Santa Monica Farmers’ Market on Wednesday and Saturday, as well as a Sunday Farmers’ Market nearby on Main Street which is a popular neighborhood event with crafts and restaurants too.

Relaxing getaway to Santa Monica
It is close to the beach, close to all the Santa Monica sights, and close to Los Angeles attractions. Owners live on-site, for friendly help or local tips.
