About the Property
2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, office/study, sleeps 4
Wide ocean views and restful Canyon ambiance create the perfect location to enjoy the LA area. Located one block from wide sandy beaches - the sounds of the surf in the evening will lull you to sleep. And the ocean views from nearly every room provide relaxing vistas and fabulous sunsets each evening.
The house has a gated entry, large covered lanai, private patio outside each bedroom and deck overlooking the ocean. Open living room with cathedral ceiling and huge widows remind you of the outstanding beauty of this unique location throughout the day. Fully equipped cook's kitchen with top of the line appliances.
The home is perfect for visiting the area for work or pleasure. Walking distance to downtown Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades. Our goal is to make our guests as comfortable as in a 5-star ‘boutique’ hotel.
Please contact the owner directly using the "Send a Message" button at the right of the screen if you have any questions.
The house has 2 bedrooms, each with a queen-size bed, and a smaller bedroom that we have outfitted as an office but also contains a comfortable day bed that can accommodate one person. There are two bathrooms; the master bath has both a large walk-in shower and a separate deep soaking tub. The master bath also has radiant floor heating that keeps the limestone warm in the evening. The second bathroom has a terrazzo tile shower. Each room has a well-organized closet with ample space. The bedrooms also have doors leading to the backyard patio with comfortable furniture for relaxing.
The house has a central sound system with speakers located in various rooms so that music from your i-Pod, Pandora or CD can be listened to throughout the house. There is a large flat-screen TV in the living room. The kitchen, dining area and living rooms all have a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean and Santa Monica Canyon. The kitchen has top of the line appliances and has the necessary cooking equipment for meal preparation. There also is a flat-screen TV in the kitchen/dining area. Wi-Fi is accessible throughout the house.
The house was completely renovated in 2009 and offers the highest standard of accommodation. It is bright throughout the day. The Pacific Ocean can be seen from many rooms in the house and the sound of the waves will be heard in the evening.
Outside we have a large covered lanai for relaxing and dining outdoors in the endless California summer. The house is in a secluded location perched above the street so it is very private. The beach is a short one-block walk down either Entrada Drive or Ocean Way where you will find the wide sandy beach, volleyball nets, and the famous bicycle path on the beach.
Across the Canyon directly opposite from the house is the iconic Eames House designed and previously lived in by the famous architect/designers Charles and Ray Eames. The living room windows of the house frame a perfect view of one of the Eames Houses perched on the rim of Santa Monica Canyon.

Car: Not Necessary
Santa Monica Canyon is one of the prettiest, most tranquil neighborhoods in Los Angeles. Nestled between Pacific Palisades and Santa Monica, the area is close to shopping and great restaurants but also offers its residents proximity to the beach and many outdoor activities. Will Rogers Beach is just outside your door. Walk or take the bike path along the beach to the Santa Monica Pier, Venice or north towards Malibu. Take a dip in the ocean. Or explore the Canyon's secret stairways shaded by native oaks & eucalyptus leading to Rustic Canyon park with neighborhood tennis courts and swimming pool. Several fine restaurants are a short walk from the house and shopping of Montana Avenue, Venice, and Pacific Palisades is only a few minutes drive. But it is also possible to fully enjoy the area without a car - almost unheard of in Los Angeles! With its rich history in the arts, the Canyon is still a favorite of celebrated artists, writers and musicians, and it’s easy to see why.
Christopher Isherwood, one of the many literary stars who have called this area Home, wrote about the Canyon in several of this works. In an essay, 'The Shore' (1952), he describes the area:
The place in the United States I think of as home – and I feel very homesick for it as I write these words – is the stretch of ocean front running five or six miles south from Santa Monica Canyon to Venice, partly inside, partly outside the city limits of Los Angeles.
Santa Monica Canyon – known always simply as ‘The Canyon’ to its dwellers – lies just north of the city of Santa Monica. It is a shallow flat-bottomed little valley, crowded with cottages of self-consciously rustic design, where cranky, kindly people live and tolerate each other’s mild and often charming eccentricities. The Canyon is our western Greenwich Village, overrun now by various types of outsiders, but still maintaining an atmosphere of Bohemianism and unpretentious artiness.
