Bedroom 3 (14'x12) doubles as a music studio, mix room. I will remove all the equipment, however some of the sound clouds and bass traps will remain, as well as the 65" flat screen.

About Jonathan Miller

My Wife, Daughter and I live here as our primary residence and have decided to share our lovely home while we are away or on vacation. We have extensive experience in vacation rentals with our previous home. Over 10 years with 5 star reviews. This is our fist time listing this home, so no reviews as yet. Maybe you could be the first :0) We work hard, respect and enjoy life and love people. I was born in London, England, My Wife in Ireland and our beautiful daughter in Santa Monica. Lived in LA for 20 years and we love it.

Jonathan Miller purchased this house in 2015

Why Jonathan Miller chose Mar Vista

We bought this house because we fell in love with all it has to offer. It's so hard to leave as we have everything we need right here. The pool is just amazing, large enough to put some laps in or just play with the kids. We love the privacy the house and garden has to offer. No neighbors on three sides of the property. The one neighbor is great though, but we have a private fence and are the only two story on the block, so very very private. Also being on the end of the block we have a considerably larger lot size. Love the open plan and the light. Very bright and has a great vibe. The kitchen is large enough to be able to cook and still entertain guests. We love to cook and eat outside too. It's like having two kitchens with the great BBQ grill. The location is also key. A short bike ride or drive to the beach or walking to some fabulous restaurants, bars, cafe´s, grocery stores and the local farmers market on Sunday. The Mar Vista Bowling Alley is a great way to spend an afternoon.

What makes this house unique

Large Swimming Pool. Resort Style Back Yard and Garden. Beautiful location, rose garden, flower wall, great safe neighborhood. The only two story on our street, so we have great views and only one immediate neighbor. Everything you need to relax and enjoy your stay by the pool and hot tub.

Far better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

This home is spectacular! Spacious, well-appointed, everything you could possibly need or want. The host is tremendously helpful and responsive. Our vacation plans abruptly changed at the last minute (due to an unscrupulous VRBO owner), but the universe has a way of working things out... for the better! We are truly grateful for the opportunity to stay in this fine home, and for the pleasure of dealing with a host of integrity.

Your own LA Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

Incredible house with a super convenient location and wonderful amenities. Each bedroom is complete, and the backyard is a wonderful gift. Parking is easy (on the street), and there are lots of little shops just around the corner on Venice. I wish I could have taken advantage of all this house had to offer!
