About the Property

Immaculate family compound near beach, parks, shops, restaurants, yoga and more!

Our meticulously restored, 1930's home features exceptional architectural details throughout including hardwood floors, plaster beam ceilings, original art deco tile, etc... The home also offers a fully-equipped kitchen with built-in breakfast nook, formal dining room, large living room with wood burning fireplace, front and back patios, a gas BBQ and gas fire pit and sizable, newly landscaped, south facing back yard with Ping Pong table, Bocce Ball court and large courtyard dining area.

We offer 3 flat screen, HDTVs each with DVRs and DVD players. There is also high-speed, fiber optic (FIOS) WIFI with Netflix, Amazon Instant Streaming, Pandora, Spotify, X Box, etc... We also have new, in-ceiling stereo speakers throughout the kitchen, dining, living room and back patio areas.

We are located in a lovely, safe and convenient neighborhood known as Sunset Park which is 1.25 miles from the beach and just one block from shops, cafés, restaurants, yoga, and a lovely grocery store. There are two wonderful parks within walking distance as well as a public 9-hole golf course, a state-of-the art swim center and multiple Breeze Bike-Share locations. Plus, we are only a 15-20 minute drive from Pacific Palisades, Malibu, Westwood and LAX depending on the traffic.

Twice weekly housekeeping can be included.

Guests will be greeted upon arrival and we will be available to answer any questions and provide information though out your stay. Please call Katherine with additional question 310.801.0344

As this is our primary residence of 20+ years, we take great care of and pride in its upkeep. We expect guests to be respectful and abide by the house rules which include: No smoking, no pets, no parties and no loud noise of any kind.

PLEASE NOTE: “On May 12, 2015, the Santa Monica City Council adopted the Home-Sharing Ordinance reiterating its ban on the rental of entire units as vacation rentals. The Home-Sharing Ordinance also legalized the short term rental of a portion of a person’s home when the host lives on-site throughout the visitor’s stay and when the host obtains a business license. Hosts are also required to collect and remit Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) if not collected and remitted by the hosting platform.”

"Santa Monica is a beautiful seaside city, with easy access to metropolitan Los Angeles and the rest of Southern California. Equal parts coastal getaway and urban center, Santa Monica serves as a perfect base for vacationers and business travelers alike.

Located a convenient 8 miles (13 km) north of LAX and itself a walkable 8.3 square miles (21.5 km²), Santa Monica is comprised of eight distinct districts, each featuring its own character and lifestyle options. Following is a survey of the eight districts and highlights of each of their offerings:

Downtown and Third Street Promenade

Also known as Downtown Santa Monica, Inc., this neighborhood hosts some of the city’s biggest stores and most famous retailers as well as two weekly farmers’ markets. The open-air, pedestrian-only Third Street Promenade is a huge draw for its shopping, dining, street performers, bookstores and movie theaters.

Santa Monica Pier and Ocean Avenue

Offering direct contact with the beach and ocean, the famous Santa Monica Pier houses a Carousel and full over-the-water amusement park, while palm tree–lined Ocean Avenue has an array of prized ocean-view restaurants and hotels.


Mid-City’s wide thoroughfares are home to a variety of shopping, dining and pubs, many major film, television and music companies, as well as the city’s newest performing arts venue.

Main Street

Main Street offers chic clothing and design stores, art galleries and a weekly farmers’ market just two blocks from the ocean, as well as the Santa Monica Walk-In Visitor Information Center.

Montana Avenue

Montana Avenue is a tree-lined shopping area amid a residential neighborhood with casual yet luxurious dining and shopping options.

Pico Boulevard

Pico highlights include Virginia Park, the Virginia Park Farmer's Market, Trader Joe's, Local Coffee, McCable's Guitar Shop, Aca Pillow, the Morgan Wilson theater, Upper West, etc...

Ocean Park

Ocean Park is a friendly neighborhood that is experiencing a bit of a Renaissance with a variety of new, shops, cafes and restaurants including Thyme Cafe and Market, Cafe Bolivar, Love Coffee, Santa MOnica Yoga, Goods, Brooke Rodd, etc...

Santa Monica Airport

Santa Monica Airport is a working, private airfield and events space, home to outstanding restaurants, the monthly Outdoor Antique Market and annual Barney’s sale at Barker Hangar."
