Destination guide

Pacific Palisades is an LA paradise

With well-to-do Sunset Boulevard snaking under the Santa Monica Mountains on one side and the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific Ocean lapping the sandy shores on the other, the setting for the Palisades is surely one of the best in Los Angeles. Manicured gardens hugging opulent villas, ocean-view condos with salt-washed patios, family retreats hidden in the Temescal Canyon – they are all on the menu when it comes to Pacific Palisades vacation rentals. The upshot? A stylish, swish, cool, and comfortable pad on the happening northern edge of LA.

Things to do

Pacific Palisades: beaches and peaks

Gnarly waves and powdery sands don't stop at the Pacific Palisades. The northern extension of LA's iconic shoreline is here. It comes with the uber-famous Will Rogers State Beach: the homeland of Baywatch, and a medley of volleyball courts and chichi bars. Malibu town is a stone's throw away, too, with its hip inhabitants and cracking surf. And there's Santa Monica with its vibrant pier to the south. Eager for culture? Check out the elegant Getty Villa, a medley of Greek statues and Etruscan relics.


Get out and about in Pacific Palisades

If you've bagged yourself one of the super-coveted Pacific Palisades vacation rentals with sea views, then you'll be able to look down onto the Pacific Ocean and check whenever there's surf or sunbathing conditions. You'll also have some dramatic scenery as a backdrop for those morning yoga classes, and oodles of clifftop walking routes just on the doorstep. Meanwhile, the mountains have their own draws, up with the Backbone Trail System of the Topanga State Park, where wine tours, horse-riding opportunities, camping and picnicking in the Santa Ynez all await.


Feel the sun on your face in Pacific Palisades

Wait for the rain clouds of winter to disperse and search for your Pacific Palisades vacation rentals when the LA area is scorching hot – you'll be close enough to the beaches of Will Rogers and Malibu to cool off whenever you want, remember. If you want the weather but not the crowds, you could always consider getting in early with a spring break in May, or hold off until fall during September and October – both of those tend to find the neighborhood somewhat quieter, with accommodation rates dropping just a little.

Their wooded peaks and dusty valleys are filled with ranches and crossed by walking routes like the Santa Ynez Trail.
