I'm a studio photographer with two sons, one who is in college and the other is still in elementary school . We are extremely fortunate to live in such an ideal location next to the beach. I spend a lot of my free time playing tennis, beach volleyball, and entertaining in my home.
The Owner purchased this house in 1997
When I first discovered Santa Monica Canyon I knew that I could live here forever. It is a small and friendly community surrounded by greenery with hidden steps and various levels of the small canyon to explore. It is completely unlike any other area in Los Angeles. It feels very remote tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet Downtown L.A.and Hollywood are only 30 minutes away. Truly the best of both worlds!
On certain days one can hear the sound of waves breaking as they roll up the canyon. Other unique benefits are the tropical parrots singing in my trees and as well as hawks soaring above. I love that we can walk or bike to great restaurants and pubs and Santa Monica has a fantastic bus system for those who don't have access to a car.
The beds are amazing and I the sheets are too! A real cooks kitchen and Ocean View.. I never want to leave. Love this place.
We just spent 9 nights at this lovely home! We required a wheelchair accessible living space for my daughter, and this home definelty met our needs! Ev
Everything was clean, and tidy, and any questions we had, were responded to quickly.
The location is more centrally located, than one would think (due to the windy roads). It just takes a moment to get one's bearings. The neighbourhood is pretty, and peaceful, and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a comfortable, yet, upscale place to stay.
we stayed here for four nights in may - 2 adults and 4 children - and we all loved this place. Lots of space for everyone - beautiful gardens and two decks - plus a view of the ocean. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, but a short drive (or a not-to-far walk) to the beach. The owner was very helpful with anything we needed. Highly recommended. We would come again (and hopefully stay for a longer time).
With half the family living in London and the other Sydney we were looking for the home away from home which was half way between the two. We certainly found it, as soon as we entered the front door we immediately felt comforted and relaxed and like we had always been together. This home away from home was ideal to support a long overdue family catch up.
The house is wonderfully equipped. There is very possible utensil etc you could want in the kitchen to make perfect family meals. The laundry and drying facilities are big enough to fit huge piles of clothes in. The beds and bedding are lovely and comfy - no problems sleeping.
As for location for us it was ideal. Although a car might make it easier if you plan on doing all the LA sites, for us our holiday was about spending time together. Walking to the beach is nothing and the buses in the Santa Monica a breeze. There is actually a lot to see and do around Santa Monica so we never felt the need to head far away.
Lastly dealing with Bader was excellent. Nothing was ever too much trouble and everything was done as she said it would be.
All up the most perfect stay and certainly a place to highly recommend.
This house is so much more than expected. The picture doesn't do it justice. The linens were high quality, the kitchen had everything you need to prepare multitude of meals, and the view is spectacular! The beach is a great walk away as well as restaurants! Check out all the shops on Montana St. If you are a Santa Monica vacationer, I promise that this house & it's location will give you a new perspective on the area. Our 9-month old loved it and she's very picky ;-)
I'm a local SM gal who had to have a bit of surgery & my family came in from NY for a week to help me recoup. We all stayed at Bader's gorgeous home - 4 adults/2 children (kids ages 7& 5). It was absolutely perfect. The kids loved the tree house, the bunk beds & all the fun games & toys Bader provided, which even included bikes & scooters!! We walked to the beach & all through the beautiful canyon streets. It's such a peaceful, private, lovely spot... I know that I was able to rest & start feeling great again so much more quickly as a result of being there. Magical place!! We had the best time. Bader is a wonderful host, was incredibly thoughtful & attentive to needs/likes of all of us (grandma to little ones). Staying here was one of our family's greatest summer highlights! I would highly recommend this amazing home to anyone. Thank you, Bader!
