About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This Classic Santa Monica home was built in 1939 as worker housing for Douglas Aircraft which was just down the street.

Douglas Aircraft was one of the big reasons why we won World War 2, churning out thousands of military aircraft.

Today, Douglas Aircraft is gone, replaced by restaurants and commercial buildings but this house remains, painstakingly restored to its original spender.

It has large bedrooms, a beautiful kitchen, all hardwood floors, a large walk-in closet, beautiful bathrooms, and a large backyard deck shaded by a huge stone pine tree.

There is a king bed in the master, a queen bed in the 2nd bedroom, and a queen sleeper sofa in the den.

The location is great. A number of restaurants and parks are walking distance as well as Trader Joe’s Market. The beach is a 15 minute drive and West LA & UCLA are close by.

St. Johns Hospital, UCLA Medical Center, and Cedar Sinai are short drives. Freeway access to the rest of Los Angeles is close by.

Note: Because of Santa Monica's restrictions on short term rentals, the only way we can keep this house occupied for any reasonable percentage of the time is to not skip ahead and only rent it when it is currently vacant. So please look at our calendar and see if your dates are close to our next scheduled vacancy.

About The Owner

I am a retired Contractor and my wife is a former hotel manager. We live locally and together are able to keep this property in excellent condition.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Sunset Park

This is an old house but only a few years ago, it was torn down to the studs and everything other than the frame and exterior siding was replaced making it effectively a new house. The rooms are large and it has lots of light.

Baby&children friendly home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my family in this house for nearly 3 months. I was pregnant for my 2 nd children. The house was really beautiful, modern and new/clean furnitures, easy to use and happy to live in. The house owner was friendly and ready to answer for any question during our stay. We don't live in US so we don't know very much about procedures. I was worried before I moved in. But I found no bad surprise, they were available for any of our needs. Everything was perfect. Thanks Steven&Judy !! sorry for bad english :) MUGE-CEM

Fantastic "home away from home"!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect in every way. It is VERY spacious, clean (spotless actually), quiet, had everything we needed (and more), and is in a terrific location. You can walk to TraderJoe's for your groceries, drive 5 minutes and you are at the beach, drive 2 minutes to hop on to major highways, and you are minutes away from the 3rd Avenue Promenade and Santa Monica mall. There were 3 of us and one slept in the den on the hideaway bed. We loved the private, quiet patio and enjoyed many meals there. We also walked around the neighborhood every morning, it is in a great, safe area. We will definitely stay here again and will recommend it to friends!!!
