Property description

Please, we do not allow parties in the house!!!
Location, location, location! Extraordinarily charismatic, romantic, sunny and airy Mediterranean-style 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home in the heart of Venice/Marina del Rey sleeps up to 6 and is just a easy walk to the beach. This is the ideal and utterly charming vacation getaway for a couple, family or business group. Located on beautiful Howard Street, we affectionately call it 'Howard's End.'

Our sunny casita welcomes you on a beautiful and quiet residential street just blocks from the Marina. Unrestricted parking. Open living room and dining area with skylights and hardwood floors. The spotless and airy kitchen is fully equipped with all amenities, perfect for preparing fresh organic produce from one of the many local farmer’s markets in the area. Enjoy breakfast on our front balconette, and lunch or dinner al fresco on our backyard terrace where 8 can comfortably gather around the table.

Howard's End also includes widescreen HD premium cable TV and high-speed broadband internet and Wi-Fi. Both bedrooms feature queen-size beds looking out into the backyard gardens, with the master bedroom’s French doors opening up onto a lovely Mediterranean patio that leads to our backyard terrace. There are two full bathrooms adjacent to each bedroom. Our den offers a comfortable desk and working area, with a sofa bed that comfortably sleeps two, with another queen-size sofa bed in the living room.

We’re just a short stroll to the surf and sands of Venice beach where you can bike, swim, skateboard, explore, shop and dine casually or elegantly, and the famous Venice Pier and the Venice Canals are just a 7-minute walk down the street. Just three blocks away is the exceptional Abbott Kinney Blvd. known for its charming boutiques, antique stores, fine restaurants and shopping. There are literally dozens of fine restaurants, cafes and coffee shops in our very walkable – a gastronome’s delight!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

Why the Owner Chose Santa Monica:
The casita is in the wonderful 'golden triangle' district of Venice/Marina del Rey and is extremely convenient to all beach area attractions: Abbott Kinney, Venice Beach and the Venice Canals, the freeways, and the Santa Monica Pier and Promenade. When we first saw this property, we thought we had just stepped into a corner of Southern Italy!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Reliving that vacation you always wanted to take to Italy. Relaxing with a margarita on our Mediterranean back patio. Taking a two-minute stroll to one of the best (and best-priced!) Italian restaurants on the west side -- C&O Cucina. 'Boutiquing' on Abbott Kinney Blvd, just three blocks away. Walking down to shops and cafes of the Marina's Fisherman's Wharf, watching the pelicans catch fish and the sailboats catch the waves to Catalina Island across the Santa Monica Bay.
