This rental and its hosts were fantastic! Clean, beautifully decorated, organized and stocked with anything you could want during your stay. Len went above and beyond as a host- for example, when I couldnt figure out how to work the coffee maker in our room, he fixed that by leaving a fresh, hot mug of coffee and cream outside my door every morning, without me even asking. This isnt a room in a house, more like its own separate guest house, so tons of privacy. There were about 10 bikes to use whenever we wanted, bike locks, coolers, beach towels and blankets, ocean toys, etc. No need to pack any of that. The room is less than a 4 minute walk from the beach in a very safe and fancy area (apparently Tom Hanks' neighborhood!) Within a 2 minute walk of the room is an adorable and delicious coffee and breakfast "truck" with picnic tables and the best avocado toast ever, two nice white tablecloth restaurants, and Patricks roadhouse, which is a fun beachy roadside cafe with all kinds of food and great service. The walk to the beach leads you directly to the Santa Monica bike trail that takes you down to the Santa Monica Pier, and even further down to Venice beach. We found it so so easy to bike anywhere we wanted to go along the beach. Len is friendly, neighborly, unintrusive, but always looking for ways to make your stay the best possible. I would highly recommend staying here anytime!
The beautiful Santa Monica Canyon and Rustic Canyon are the most desirable places to live in all of the Los Angeles area. Multi-million dollar homes are tucked away and often hidden from site by beautiful trees and vegetation. National Geographic magazine just named Santa Monica one of the top 10 beach cities in the world.
