Super LUX meets Modern Bungalow just steps from the sand in Santa Monica
Why Tom Neary chose Downtown
This property is the best location I've seen by far in Santa Monica and we are literally steps to the sand! The house is the perfect beach house getaway for families and couples.
What makes this House unique
Heart of Santa Monica yet you feel like you are in the woods with large pine trees canopying the house and views onto the ocean.

This property and, better stated, the experience of living in this property for a week or so was the best rental experience my family and I have had. Ever!
It starts with the people. Tom the owner/host, Christine the property manager and the cleaning team were all, to a person, friendly, helpful, communicative and charming. They made the time very special and the rental experience easy.
The property itself is an award winning redevelopment of an already beautiful home. The location cannot be overstated. It is on a quiet, connecting space between Ocean Ave and Appian Way. Very, repeat, very safe area. About 50 steps in one direction from the best beach vibe you'll find in the world and 50 steps in the other direction from the vibrancy of the heart of Santa Monica. We walked, easily, to as many great restaurants as we could handle in our time. Uber/Lyft were easily accessible if needed. Parking worked out great. It was never an issue in an area where parking is at a premium.
The house is very large and accommodated a family of four (all adults) easily. Very, very clean. Beautifully decorated and bountifully stocked. The exterior fire pit/seating area and outdoor dining were awesome and a great quiet space for us. The pictures accurately capture the beauty of the place.
I could go on and on. My title of this review captures the essence of it all. My highest recommendation for the best vacation rental property and experience I've had. People, location, property, safety all. If you're in Santa Monica, I highly recommend you look at this luxury beach house steps away from the Pacific. Thanks. Paul Clark
Wonderful house, very clean, great location.
We had a wonderful stay here! It was spacious for our family of 5, we could walk to get our necessities. We didn't do much cooking on vacation, but I am a cook at home and I know the kitchen had everything you would need. The house was clean. The owner was available when needed for any questions, although we had very few.
Magic Blue House
We had the most wonderful stay at this property. The walk path is like a private garden leading up to the house with purple flowers blooming on the iron gate. The interiors are impeccable. (As an interior designer this is essential) Casual chic comfort for a fabulous vacation. The house had everything we needed and both the owner Tom and caretaker Christina were wonderful to work with.
The property has such a great energy and light - so close to the beach. With a huge tree shading and welcoming all who enter. Just lovely Can't recommend it enough.
Beautiful, spacious, quiet home steps to the beach and to Santa Monica restaurants and shops.
This home is ideally located just steps from the beach and walking distance to downtown Santa Monica restaurants and shops. Nestled on a quiet carless walkway the home is shielded from the hustle and bustle of the beach and town but conveniently located with easy access to both. Also an easy walk to the Santa Monica Pier and bicycle rentals. We walked everywhere! We also had two parking passes to easily accessible parking lots which was very convenient because we wanted our cars for longer excursions. The home is beautiful and light and airy with plenty of room for guests on two levels. The rooms are spacious, and the kitchen, dining room and living room all very welcoming. Tom is a wonderful and responsive host. We had a few questions during our stay and he responded very promptly. I highly recommend this property!!
Wonderful property steps from the beach.
Our family had a perfect stay. The property is just as advertised: close to the beach, immaculately clean, well furnished, large kitchen area, private backyard, newly remodeled kitchen, spacious living area, and well furnished.
Beautiful house. Convenient location.
We really enjoyed the lovely house. It was even nicer than the pictures! The location was great as it was Within walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach. My kids really enjoyed scootering the strand and going on the rides at the pier.
We had a couple of issues during our stay but the owner resolved them quickly and without much inconvenience. The mattress in the master bedroom was not good as it sunk in the middle allowing only one person to sleep in the king size bed.
Overall we enjoyed our time at the house and will recommend it others.
