Santa Monica bungalow description

Step back into time and experience the neighborhood as it once was. The streets lined with beach cottages within walking and biking distance to the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean and wide Santa Monica beaches. The light and airy nature of each bungalow welcomes you in while you are away from home.

Each bungalow has been newly restored and improved to make your stay as comfortable as any hotel can offer. Add the updated kitchen, privacy, pool and location and these little houses are hard to rival. Each has its own character and each has its own charm.

Poolside Bungalow 1 is located on the back of the property. This tucked away little bungalow was built in 1927. It was part of a grouping of bungalows of which only a few remain. The many windows are encased in vintage trim, swing-out wood casement windows and white washed painted floors. The bedroom is tastefully romantic and features a walk-in closet and direct access to the bathroom with a vintage tub and newly plastered walls. The kitchen is a cooks delight with a Wedgewood stove, dishwasher, farmhouse sink, microwave and coffee maker. The light filled living room is enchanting, surrounded by windows which fill this room with light and the ocean breeze. This room looks out onto the pool and a timber bamboo courtyard. The living space holds two couches and dining room table that comfortably sits six. The two couches can double as beds making this bungalow ideal for a family of four. This property comes with parking for one car.

These two pool bungalows can be rented individually or together. Each opens out onto the private courtyard and shared swimming pool. Each one is lovelier than the next and if you aren't renting both we invite you back to stay in the other one during your next visit.

Inquire into whether or not we are available during your stay via an email or feel free to call us directly.
We love what we do and we love Santa Monica!

Bungalow 2: Our 2 bedroom front bungalow is also listed on VRBO. Feel free to take a look!

Year Purchased: 2013

About: The owners of these lovely pool houses chose us to represent their property to help guarantee your stay will be a vacation dream come true. We both live and work in Santa Monica and love being part of this amazing beach community. We have a wealth of information about the area and are here to assist you in any way we can.

Why Santa Monica:
This property is unique to all of Santa Monica. These two beach bungalows are one of the few private 1920 properties with a private pool for swimming and lounging around on a lazy summer day with a book. As an architect, the owner saw the potential to restore these bungalows in an open, clean, light filled, simple, colorful and modern genre.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
There aren't any hotels on Montana Avenue, but there is the best place to stay in town just half a block away. These 2 pool bungalows are within walking distance to Montana Avenue, the 3rd Street Promenade & the ocean! It doesn't get any better than that.
