Steps from the warm sands and magnificent Pacific Ocean in Santa Monica. 4 bedrooms/2 bath.
The first floor Master Bedroom is bright and airy. French doors open onto a large wooden deck and over looks the garden as well as Ocean.
The room has a full entertainment system, TV, Wireless, as well as ceiling fan and standing closet. Second Bedroom is easily converted from Kids room to Guest Room to Writer's Studio (a few of our guests have written books here).
Open living and dining area accommodates large families or cozy small ones. Warm yourselves by the original Sandstone fireplace....
The 2nd story has 2 bedrooms and a TV room that can convert to a sleeping quarter making 5 bedrooms total. There is a min-kitchen upstairs as well so the units can be separated to form two distinct apts.
* the upper apt can be rented on its own.
The house was originally a single family. it was converted into two diff’t apts – one apt on each floor and we have now brought it back to one single family (upstairs and downstairs). However there are still elements from the two apt layout. We can rent the two bedroom apt upstairs on its own ($1600 per week) or the entire house. Its really great for large families or multiple families vacationing together.
To be clear.....
downstairs: master suite (with King size bed, french doors that open to upper outside deck) , full kitchen, great room (dining/living room w. TV), second room with twin w deluxe twin or double air available
Upstairs: 2nd master (king size bed), additional room with twin size bunks and a Queen size bed., den/tv room, office area, small european-style kitchen
Air Quality or Allergies: We are just off the Beach. The wind off the ocean keeps the air quality incredibly clean. The ocean emits enormous amounts of Fresh Oxygen. We have kept our house free of Mold as well.
A short walk gets you to wonderful 'mom n' pop' restaurants, boutique shopping, wine bars, ice cream, panini sandwiches, Health Food Store, coffee shops. Eclectic Venice Beach is also a walk away with its craft booths, incense vendors, painters and colorful street performers. Also very close to trendy '3rd St Promenade' with retail chain stores (Abercrombie and Fitch, The Gap, etc) and Movie Theaters, Jazz clubs, Bars, Discos, etc. Disneyland, Magic Mountain, Universal Studios, Hollywood are a car ride away but not close enough to feel like you're caught in a tourist trap.
This is an old turn-of-the-century home. It's not 'perfect' - that means if your kids happen to make a crayon drawing on a wall - we're not worried, just clean up. The house is over 100 years old so there is some natural wear and tear. But we did a complete renovation (inside and out) when we purchased in 2000. The house is kid safe and protected. This is not a 'party house' - we want you to have a wonderful visit but if you plan to have loud parties, this isn't the rental for you. Street parking only with preferential parking pass. We welcome you to have a friend stop by to look at the house or we can send more info/pix if you like.
A very nice young couple occupy another apt on the property. You will probably never see them as they have their own entrance down a separate side of the house. They are warm and wonderful and very quiet.
We also have a wonderful Zen garden with a deck.
