About the property

Close to Beach, Studio Sleeps 4 to 5

Charming, old beach studio in Pacific Palisades with beautiful view of the beach and ocean. One bathroom with walk-in shower, kitchen with mini-fridge, toaster oven, microwave, hotplate for cooking, Brita water system, french press, and electric teapot. There is plenty of bench seating, and a table that you can eat at. There is 1 queen size memory foam bed, 1 futon that folds to a full or queen size "bed" and is comfy, and there is plenty of bench seating in the back area and kitchen area, that a person, or people can sleep on. GREAT VIEW!!!!


This beach studio sits atop a cliff in the Pacific Palisades. It is the downstairs unit of a charming, old beach house built in 1950. You have your own private large deck and entrance. The unit above has tenants therefore you may hear footsteps. If it bothers you while you are sleeping, then there are ear plugs in the bathroom medicine cabinet. This family typically goes to bed early. There is AC and heating in the studio, but unfortunately, it is controlled by the house above. It usually stays around 70 degrees. If that is too hot or cold, we also have a space heater, and large fan. There is a great ocean breeze that cools the house when the windows are open.

We live on the side of a mountain overlooking the ocean surrounded by nature. It is beautiful and a little wild, so be prepared to see beautiful wildlife and the occasional critter wanting to hang out with you. Strong breezes and the smell of the ocean greet you. Please note that if you have more than 4 people that sleep here, the 5th person needs to sleep on bench seating. It is relatively comfortable, but it isn't a "bed" situation. :)

Guest access

The whole studio and lower balcony. It is a large size for being a studio; plus you have the large balcony, which is almost as big as the studio where you can bbq as well as gather around the fire pit. Great for families to sit out and watch the sunset. You have your own full size grill. The beach is also right down the hill. You can cross the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) over a walking bridge and you will have your feet in the sand. Its a quick walk or drive. The patio now has patio ambient lighting, all you have to do is plug in the lights while you sit outside on the seating.

Guest interaction

There will be no in-person interaction unless there is an issue. The owner lives above. You can message us through the app ideally if you need anything, text or even walk upstairs and knock on the door if we are home.

Neighborhood overview

Beautiful streets that overlook the expansive ocean. True paradise. The US-1 (scenic Pacific Coast Highway) is near our home. You can drive up and down the coast. Only a couple minutes from the beach. You can walk there from the studio. To get across PCH without playing frogger, walk down our street until the dead end and there is a foot bridge leading across directly to the beach. We are surrounded by nature and have beautiful wildlife, including hummingbirds, hawks, parrots, coyotes, lizards, dolphins, and all kinds of other amazing creatures.

Getting around

Buses go up the highway, just down the hill from the studio. You can also take Uber or Lyft to get around. If you wanted to get to other parts of the city, you can take the subway from Santa Monica and head east.

Other things to note

Please note that there is no washer and dryer on this property. However, there are laundromats in the area for the guests with extended stays.

Phantastic view and close proximity to beach and supermarket

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed having breakfast and dinner on the terrace. We could not get enough of the ocean view. The kitchen is small but there is a gas grill for barbecues. We also enjoyed walking the neighbourhood when going down to the beach.

Beautiful View & Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 nights and loved our stay. Ocean view from bed and every room. What you see in pics is what you get. Bed was very comfortable. We would love to stay again.

The views and location were great!

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed the ocean view and the fire pit on the deck. We had a fire both nights we were there. We were able to sleep 5 comfortably. The benches are wider than I thought they would be and an adult could sleep on them comfortably. Ariel was very responsive via text and the space was private. We had a great stay.

Great view, great location, quaint

  • 4 of 5

If you’re looking for an all-day view, this place is great. It’s also close to the beach, Malibu, Santa Monica, interstate access, and a grocery store if you feel like hanging back. The kitchen is super basic but good enough if you’re not planning on cooking much. Parking was great. The owners were super easy to connect with which was great and much appreciated. A few items needed fixing, replacement or cleaning and unfortunately for me the people renting upstairs could be heard loud and clear whenever they were there. None of the issues would keep me from going back but I’d definitely bring my own coffee cup.

Amazing view and location! Friendly, accessible hosts. Basic accommodations

  • 4 of 5

The neighborhood, view & location are incredible. I recommend having a rental car if you want to see other areas. The accommodations are very basic and are not fancy, but the view makes up for it. The hosts were accessible, friendly and live upstairs. Things that would've been nice to have had...beach towels, an iron/ironing board, a blender and ice, however, I got by just fine without these items.
