Santa Monica house description
Relax in our stunning original 1920's Spanish house within walking distance to the Pacific Ocean. You'll feel you are back in old Hollywood with mission windows, lush landscaping and original beams. Because of its ample size, (4,100 square feet), this an ideal house for a single family or two families of 4. Talavera tiles, Mexican pavers and original mahogany stained oak cover the floors of this spacious home. The house has been expertly preserved and lovingly restored.
The ultra-gourmet kitchen features Jerusalem limestone surfaces, stainless appliances, cook's stove and wine refrigerator.
Provencal pale yellow and green cement carocim tiles cover the walls, back splash and custom kitchen table, which seats 6-8 people. There is also counter seating for 3, where you can chat with the 'cook of the house.'
Our master suite is fit for a King with lush linens and draperies, enormous walnut and iron bed, seating areas, fainting couch, guest closet, T.V./VCR/DVD/CD player. The Master bath is enormous and is comprised of three separate rooms so the lady and gentleman of the house can dress and bathe at their leisure.
Two smaller but ample upstairs bedrooms contain trundle beds. One room contains an oak sleigh bed with trundle that can be separate or combined at bed height to form a king bed, an oversized slip-covererd chair and has a large mirrored closet. There is a twin futon in the closet for a 10th person. It also has an adjacent black and white original Malibu tiled bathroom/shower.
The mission style child's bedroom at the top of the staircase has an en suite bath with original Malibu tile detailing in lavender and black with a large walk-in closet.
A sizeable downstairs guest bedroom has a mahogany queen-sized sleigh bed, television and en suite black and white art deco styled bathroom/shower and roomy closet.
The small room off the study has a twin-size bed with Ralph Lauren linens and art deco armoire. The closet houses the washer and dryer.
The mission style living room has a red leather antique couch and tobacco colored club chairs, with central Indonesian coffee table and mahogany antique baby grand piano. It is a room bathed in soft light where at day's end, you can luxuriate with a glass of wine.
The large family room off the kitchen has a pass through and oversized yellow chenille sofas and chairs and is filled with toys, a large screen T.V., VCR and DVD and stereo system, and is ideal to curl up and relax after dinner. Besides Fiber Optic movies and television, we also offer a house phone with unlimited local and long-distance (in USA) calling as well as the fastest wireless Internet access available (FIOS) for all of your communication and entertainment needs.

Local sights are numerous and include: one-block walk to Montana Avenue and exquisite shopping, restaurants and markets. A half-mile walk to the Third Street Promenade is delightful, where on weekends you can view jugglers, street musicians and pranksters, catch a film and eat in one of the multitude of great restaurants on the street, or buy gourmet and organic food at the farmers' market on Wednesday and Saturday mornings until noon. The Pacific Ocean is 8 blocks away and you can rent a bike, roller skates or simply enjoy the sand. You can walk all the way to the Venice Pier and the Santa Monica Pier is just one mile away.
The coastal road or Pacific Coast Highway is an inviting and beautiful ride and Malibu is 10 minutes away, with Zuma Beach 30 minutes by car. There is hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains in Temescal Canyon off of Sunset Blvd., as well as horseback riding.

ReviewsWrite a review
We absolutely loved staying in this beautiful home. We were met at the door by the owner, who was lovely and showed us around the house. She welcomed us with delicious freshly baked scones and a bottle of red wine. The house was perfect for our family of five. Everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom. We loved the gourmet kitchen and the family room, and it was so pleasant to sit on the back patio, which was a dream. The master bedroom was spacious and beautiful and the master bathroom was incredible. We also loved the location. We were within walking distance of great restaurants, cute shops and grocery stores. One of our favorite restaurants was R&D Kitchen which had the best hamburgers. The house was exactly as described and we loved everything about it. When we come back to Santa Monica, we would definitely stay here again. It felt like our home away from home. I would recommend this home to anyone.

Owner response: Charlotte and her family were the loveliest, most respectful, darling people. Our home looked as if nobody had stayed there when we arrived, they were so clean and neat. We would love to have them visit us again, truly, sweet people.

Our family enjoyed a delightful holiday at this comfortable and spacious home. We know LA very well and knew the location would suit everyone's needs. Stores, restaurants and the ocean are all within easy walking distance. The home provided the perfect balance of space for our family to be together as well as enough space for our married children to enjoy privacy. We look forward to renting again.

Family holiday, summer 2010
Choosing a place to stay in an unknown City with only the internet to guide us was daunting and felt like a lottery. We needed a base for a family holiday exploring LA and we were delighted with our selection. The house is lovely with lots of room, very comfortable and with all the facilities we required. The location is excellent - an attractive and quiet but friendly neighbourhood with good local shops, cafes etc and easy access to Santa Monica centre and the beach. Easy driving and parking. Would be happy to recommend it.
