Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath just blocks from the Santa Monica beach.

The Heart House is located in Santa Monica Canyon, part of L.A.'s Pacific Palisades. Our house is just a block to the beach and only a 5 minute walk to the world famous Will Rogers Beach, also known as “Bay Watch Beach". This charming bungalow is perfect for couples or families with 2 children. Two Bedrooms, two bathrooms, a King size bed in the Master Bedroom and two twins in the 2nd Bedroom. House features include complete privacy behind beautiful Redwood Fence and Gate. There is a spacious Indoor/Outdoor Room for entertaining and relaxing. Other features include Free Wi-Fi High Speed Internet connectivity, DirecTV, all new Stainless Steel appliances, 50' LED Flat screen HD television, beautiful floor to ceiling brick gas Fireplace in the Living Room, a four person Jacuzzi Hot Tub and mini ping pong table for the kids. Parking is provided for one car on the property as well as ample street parking.

The Heart House does not have central air conditioning. Because we are located so close to the beach we rarely even need it. We do however have a portable unit that we can set up for you. It will cool the master bedroom down but not the whole house. The house is also equipped with fans.

Seven restaurants are easily accessible within a 2 minute walk, as well as a small market and liquor store.

No keys to deal with or lose during your stay. Both the Front Gate and Front Door to the house is controlled by an Electronic Door lock and both use the same pass-code, for your convenience! You simply get a 4 digit code to make your stay that much easier.

Not only is your ideal vacation bungalow close to the beach, but you also have easy access to Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, Malibu and all of Los Angeles, including West Los Angeles, Westwood, Brentwood and all of Western Los Angeles County. UCLA, Pepperdine, The Getty Museum, Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, Westwood, Beverly Hills, Hollywood and Universal Studios are all an easy drive. And Six Flags Magic Mountain, Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm are all within an hour’s drive. And if Art and Culture is your thing, there are too many places to list here within an hour’s drive.

We are excited to announce that a brand new Perry's Cafe and Bike Rental just opened at the beach by the Heart House so renting bikes has never been easier! Just walk down the block to the beach, rent your bikes and head down the bike path to visit Santa Monica, Venice, Marina Del Rey and beyond!

Why Colette Sherouse & Lisa Davison chose Santa Monica

You can walk everywhere. If your #1 priority is the beach walk down the block, through the tunnel and you've arrived. Do you like Fine Dining, rustic Italian, Margaritas and Mexican Food? You'll pass them all on the way to the beach! Forgot your sunscreen, razor or missing your favorite magazine? That too is a short walk away at your local convenience store. Our property is perfect for young families. with a fully gated front yard you can let the kids run around while you relax on the front porch or in the hot tub.

What makes this bungalow unique

The Heart House is the perfect vacation spot because you never have to use your car once you arrive. You can rent bikes right on the bike path and ride up and down the coast or walk to the beach and neighborhood restaurants and bars. Or...it is the perfect location to use as a home base as you explore the many different attractions this world class city has to offer. You choose!

Great location and facility

Very short walk to a beautiful beach. House was very comfortable for up to four people. Manager and owner very responsive. We hope to return.

Heart house is perfect

  • 5 of 5

Great lace near beach and restaurants. We loved having the grill and hot tub. We had 3 adults and a 4 year old. It was perfect.

Great vacation at the Heart House!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time! Location was perfect for all of our activities, and the house had everything we could need. Thanks so much! We will certainly consider the house again should we return to Santa Monica.

The perfect vacation rental!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time! Right when you walk in the property (which was very easy to figure out) you get blasted in the face with the most beautiful smell of fresh flowers! We felt right at home in the heart house and never felt like anyone was hovering over us. There was never a time that the house was a distraction or anything from our vacation. Strictly enhances anyone's stay. Gorgeous house. Nice people. And an awesome location. Close to whatever you can think. Also I cant stress enough how private it was. It was like we were in our own little world. We would 100% stay again and I guarantee next time I'm back in California I'll be looking for the heart house! Thanks for making our stay amazing.

From Washington State with love!

Map

Rustic Canyon Park is just a brisk walk or 2 minute drive away. This lovely neighborhood park boasts a shaded playground, tennis courts, basketball, baseball and a local outdoor pool. Behind the bungalow is shady, secluded streets and winding trails for hikers. Also, Temescal Gateway Park, just a 4 minute ride from your bungalow is nestled in a quiet canyon and is bordered by the majestic Santa Monica Mountains. Although the park is conveniently close to the city, its unparalleled natural beauty will make you feel as though you've entered another world.
