Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Are you coming for vacation? Or are you going to be here for work? Either way this house is ideal. It is located in a prime Santa Monica location just 6 blocks from the beach. It is a short distance to both the Third Street Promenade and Main Street where you will find amazing shops, restaurants and weekend farmer's markets not to mention some over-the-top people watching.

For more people watching and sidewalk entertainment Venice Boardwalk and the Santa Monica Pier are also close by. Being close to the beach, you’ll be able to enjoy great surfing, biking, sailing and incredible sunsets. If you are here for work, there is a major freeway a short distance away. From there you will be able to get to downtown Los Angeles in just 25 minutes (traffic permitting of course).

The 2 bedroom, 1 bath house is a charming 1920’s California Bungalow with a sun porch that looks out on a quiet brick patio and peaceful gardens. But if you do not want to merely look out on the yard, you can enjoy dinner at the outside dining table. Or you can get some work done with the help of the wireless Internet access. When you enter the house you will walk through the sun porch into a relaxing living room. It is a great place to relax, watch TV or read a book.

Amenities include cable, DVR and a DVD player. Each bedroom has a queen size bed and plenty of closet space. The kitchen is fully stocked with all dinnerware, pots and pans and includes a microwave in addition to the antique stove. And for eating inside there is a cozy dining room just off the kitchen.

There are two off-street parking spaces.

This house is on the same property as VRBO# 78668. The houses are totally separate so you can be as connected or independent as you like. It's a perfect arrangment if you have a big group coming for a wedding or graduation. The two houses combined can accomodate 8-10 people.

**Please be aware that I DO NOT use the VRBO calendar, so please contact me directly for availability.

We loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to visit our daughter and her new family in November. It was perfect for our needs. The house is warm, very quiet and comfortable. We felt right at home and even had breakfast every morning on the patio. The weather was perfect! We rented a car so having easy parking was a life saver. If we didn't feel like driving, it was a short walk to Main Street, the beach, Santa Monica Pier and the metro stop by the Santa Monica Place outdoor mall. We would definitely recommend this house!

Relaxed, quiet vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three stayed for a month this past summer at the cottage on Grant Street and had a wonderful vacation. The neighborhood is very quiet and conveniently located near all the Santa Monica attractions. The cottage itself was nicely furnished and maintained, with a well-equipped kitchen, on-site laundry facilities and off-street parking. Our five-year old daughter had a great time playing in the outdoor space. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor dining area and barbecue on warm summer nights. We would definitely recommend this rental for couples or small families planning a Santa Monica visit.

NICE END TO A CROSS COUNTRY TRIP

  • 4 of 5

My wife, 2 teenage daughters and I drove from Massachusetts to Cali seeing sights along the way and looking forward to visiting our two older sons living in LA. The teenagers couldn't wait to get to the home we rented in Santa Monica and it didn't disappoint. It really is close to everything i.e. pier, beaches, LA et al. Bedrooms and bathrooms were totally clean and comfortable. An unexpected plus was the cable TV with internet and apps so we could watch NetFlix. I really mean to give it 4.5 stars and only not 5 because of no AC. But it wasn't very hot while we were there so it was no problem. Host was very nice and even had a small dog that reminded us of ours back at home.

Peaceful, Stylish & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying here. We absolutely love it! The garden is so cute and relaxing, and the decorations in the house make it feel very homey. A nice walk to the beach (stop by Dog Town Coffee on your way - Main St.!). We hope to stay here again. Thank you for the fantastic accommodations!

Wonderful cottages in heart of Santa Monica!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at one of the two cottages for several weeks, for 3 years in a row. The place is just wonderful! It is safe, quiet and charming, a perfect location for enjoying Santa Monica or Los Angeles, and very clean. Deirdre is outstanding and very responsive. This is a terrific place!

Total Charmer - Loved Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for 2 weeks this summer and loved every minute of it. This house is cozy and cute with everything we needed for our stay. The decor is lovely and calming. This house is tucked away so it is quiet, but is also close enough to walk to the beach and downtown Santa Monica. Plenty of parking...which you will find out is hard to come by in this town. We have nothing but the best to say about this place and can't wait to come again.
