Eclectic Santa Monica two Bedroom/two Bathroom home on quiet tree-lined street
This updated home in Santa Monica provides guests with a "home away from home" feeling. Treat yourself to a restorative experience in this eclectic "cottage" in a quiet residential neighborhood. Ideal for business travelers or families/friends wanting privacy and luxury. Just 2+ miles from the beach, there is a refreshing off shore breeze that fills the house with ocean air.
The home has an open floor plan, beautifully furnished, large master suite with linen bedding and Turkish towels. Kitchen has Viking appliances, All-Clad pots, Nespresso machine and pour-over coffee using beans from Philz of San Fransisco. The office space/desk has a view of the sunrise with a gas fireplace nearby for warmth on cool mornings or evenings. A second fireplace by the sofa and TV provides ambiance in evenings while enjoying a movie or conversations with your group. Entertainment includes4K Apple TV and a new 55' 4K smart TV with a Sonos sound system which also allows guests to play their own music from their electronic devices. Games like Scrabble, Chess, Jenga, Backgammon, Exploding Kittens, Cranium, etc are also provided for guest's entertainment.
The house is flooded with light via skylights and french doors and windows, highlighted by honed granite, concrete plaster finishes and oak flooring. Note that these high-end finishes/materials require care. Housekeeping is provided for stays longer than 3 nights to clean floors and dust. Bathrooms are cleaned, towels and linens changed, every 7 days.
The home is eco-friendly with recycling, composting and energy/water conservation goals. You are requested to turn off heat/air and all lights when you leave the house for the day, and to be mindful of water usage. The home has 3 climate zones for individualized comfort in the bedrooms, with a Nest thermostat.
Newly refurbished and furnished, amenities include WIFI internet, printer access, work space, ironing board and iron, hair dryer, toiletry essentials, hangers, luggage racks, laundry room, beach towels for 4 people and sand/beach toys for younger children.
The home has a master suite with a super comfortable CA king bed. The second bedroom has a twin bed and a futon that makes up into another twin bed and is surprisingly comfortable. A queen tempurpedic mattress is available to place in the open space behind the sofa for parties larger than 4 people, but no more than 6. As of June 1st, guests will have the option of placing the queen mattress in the game room for additional privacy.
The home has a decking with chairs overlooking a modest yard, including a hammock for relaxation. Due to be completed by June 1st is an outdoor dining area with BBQ adjacent to a game room featuring ping pong and darts. Photos due to be posted late May.
Centrally located in Sunset Park of Santa Monica, the home is within 3 miles of Downtown Santa Monica Pier and 3rd Street Promenade, Venice Beach, The Getty Museum, Culver City, Century City and Westwood. Los Angeles is home to wonderful restaurants, museums, shopping and theatre.
Within the Sunset Park neighborhood, the home is walking distance away from coffee shops, restaurants and boutique shopping. Bicycles can be rented from 'Breeze', a block away from the home.
Street parking is available in front of the home, by permits provided by host, which need to be returned at the end of your stay. Unreturned permits will be charged against the security deposit for $50.
A guide is provided to every guest with a map of Santa Monica and recommendations for activities and restaurants.
Santa Monica requires host to live on property for short term rentals. I live in the guest house with an elderly male cat, who is very shy and hides from strangers. He never enters the home (for those with cat allergies). Host has a separate yard area next to guest house, to maximize privacy for VRBO guests. (The cat does roam the yard.)
Note: Check-out is 10:30 and Check-in is 3:30. I am not able to provide early check-in or late check-out, if your stay precedes or follows another guest on the same day. House cleaning and laundry requires 5 hours. Thank you for understanding.

About Meaghan Ryan
A former ICU, ER and International travel nurse, whose favorite part of my job was hearing my patients' stories about themselves. We are all connected and learn from one another. This is my first time being a host for VRBO and look forward to meeting my guests and hearing their "stories". I'm currently working towards another degree, writing many papers on line. Then plan to pursue alternative healing modalities such as cranio-sacral therapy, or perhaps starting my own foundation for disadvantaged children. When I travel, I avoid hotels and prefer staying in B and B's. I'm highly respectful of other's space and property and expect the same treatment towards me. I love nature, skiing and rock climbing. Helping animals and children is my passion in life. I look forward to meeting you. :)
Meaghan Ryan purchased this House in 2007
Why Meaghan Ryan chose Sunset Park
I was born in Santa Monica, but never lived in the town, having moved around a fair amount with my parents (in various areas of CA). I decided to move my children here in 2007 and have never regretted it. It was the first home I looked at when I began looking at homes to buy, and it was the last! I bought it on the spot. It has amazing energy and there isn't a person who visits, who doesn't fall in love with the home. Long term tenants were in the house the last 4 years, while I traveled as a nurse. Having returned to my roots, I now live in the guest house, so I can share the home with travelers, seeking a restorative experience.
What makes this House unique
Centrally located to many activities throughout Los Angeles. The house is situated on a beautiful tree-lined street. It is far enough away from downtown Santa Monica and the beach, that privacy and quiet are key points, yet close enough that you can be in the center of everything within a 10 minute drive. Housekeeping services are provided for long term guests who want freedom from cleaning. Cleaning includes dusting, dust mopping hardwood floors, empty trash, tend to watering plants/flowers, clean towels and toilets every 5 days, and change bed linens after 8 days. There is an aromatherapy essential oil diffuser that can be used to freshen the house. Coffee and Tea are provided, along with basics such as cooking oils, vinegars, and seasonings.

Luxurious and spacious
My teenage daughter and I stayed in this beautiful and spacious home. Meaghan thinks of every detail and special touch. There is a terrific, fully stocked kitchen. The beds were incredibly comfortable with soft and luxurious bedding. We loved the fire places. We didn't want to leave!
Quiet comfortable home
We really enjoyed staying in this lovely home. We relaxed and slept well!
Very well maintained, welcoming, nice neighborhood
We had a wonderful experience as this was our first time renting through VRBO. We were very pleased with Meghan. She was there to welcome us and to give recommendations. She also has a full book of them. The house was very simply decorated and very clean. Beds were very comfortable . Kitchen is fully stocked to cook. It is located on a nice street and has a pretty deck and backyard. Love the skylights in the house!!!! Less than a 10 min drive to beach. We would def stay here again. Any question we had, Meghan was there to answer for us
Kris and her family were wonderful guests; communicative and friendly. They took care of the home and were respectful of house guidelines, rules.
Thank you Kris, for the stay. You are welcome anytime!
A lovely home away from home!
The pictures are lovely for this property, but you will be blown away when you walk in! It is bright, airy, and the loveliest home away from home. Conveniently located close to all the great spots in Santa Monica. The sky lights add light and an openness to the space. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen well stocked with all the essentials. You won't want to leave. The host is so kind and intentional with everything. We will be back for sure!
Meaghan’s home is beautiful! Stunning, really! The beds are very comfortable and we felt very much at home. Even every piece of furniture is incredibly well chosen. Don’t hesitate to book this amazing find!
The area is perfect. Quiet but close enough to enjoy everything Santa Monica has to offer. There is no doubt that we will be staying here again.
Thank you, Laura, for such a beautiful review. I hope to see you again. :)
