Property description

PLEASE EMAIL OR PHONE US FIRST TO CHECK ON AVAILABILITY BEFORE BOOKING! Our unique 'Beethoven's Trio' compound of three beautifully appointed vacation rentals is ideal for groups of 6-15 people who wish to be together on the same property, but may desire the privacy that three separate rentals afford -- whether coming for a wedding, graduation, reunion, work, or just to relax in the terrific climate and ambiance of the Westside's beach area. The property is located on Beethoven street in a quiet residential neighborhood of the southern Santa Monica/Venice area, just minutes down the street from Venice and Santa Monica beaches, the Abbott Kinney boutique district and the famous Venice canals.

TO SEE ALL OUR SPLENDID REVIEWS, PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR INDIVIDUAL WEBPAGES FOR ALL THREE 'BEETHOVEN'S TRIO' PROPERTIES:

Beethoven's Retreat: www.vrbo/308038
Beethoven's Hideaway: www.vrbo/172932
Beethoven Cottage: www.vrbo/195972

The two largest rentals, 'Beethoven's Retreat' and 'Beethoven's Hideaway,' each feature two bedrooms, with each one occupying a full, completely separate floor of an historic California craftsman duplex. The third rental, 'Beethoven's Cottage,' is a charming studio apartment with skylights, nestled only 20 feet away from the main house on the the other side of the backyard. All three rentals have their own private patios and surround a delightful and very green yard filled with flowers, fountains and fruit trees.

Our driveway has space for up to three cars, and there is curbside parking also available, as well as a new washer/dryer in our laundry cabina, a backyard barbecue and complimentary use of our bikes for riding to the beach.

All three vacation rentals may be booked either separately or together in any combination.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Entertainment journalist, author and filmmaker. Harvard College graduate. Passions include film, piano, literature (Shakespeare especially), Italy and travel. Speaker of English, Italian, some French and German.

Why the Owner Chose Mar Vista, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
Great value for the price, very convenient to the cafes, beaches, cinemas and shopping of the wonderful West side. A great location in what is already a world-class 'destination location.' Lovely backyard and charming front porch -- and lots of fountains and flowers that are a hit with the hummingbirds.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peaceful and quiet backyard terra-cotta patio (with charcoal BBQ) framed by bougainvillea and fountain looking out onto our lovely backyard garden and fruit trees. Complementary high-speed (6 megabyte) internet & Wi-Fi & 42' cable TV. Reserved off-street parking. Complementary use of 3 bikes for our guests, or simply stroll to the beach bus only a half-block away! The orientation of our three vacation rentals make this a perfect spot for a group of friends of vacationing families who want to be together during their vacation, or celebrate a wedding or graduation. A very friendly place!
