A letter of Reference:

Honestly, I can only give John McCormack's house the highest

recommendation. It is a beautiful, spacious, airy, sun-filled,

elegantly-designed-yet-totally-comfortable house with a lovely garden

and charm galore. The architectural work of art--the master bedroom

and bath--is absolutely luxurious. There's a soaking (Jacuzzi) tub

and a large shower that also has a steam room setting. The gas

fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom add so much cozy

feeling to the place, which, in February, could be a plus, since at

that time of year in Southern California, the night air at the beach

tends to get pretty chilly.

John is a gracious host/landlord, who checks in with his tenants

regularly (eager to answer questions about the house or accommodate

any needs--within reason--as they may come up). He is quite

friendly, but respectful of one's privacy, too. He's thoughtfully

stocked his kitchen well (we like to cook/entertain--so that's been a

wonderful bonus), and there are plenty of towels and linens for

myself, my husband, my 9-year-old son, and my father-in-law who is

staying with us for a two month visit, which is the reason for our

having rented this lovely place for a short-term stay.

I don't know how familiar you are with the Ocean Park neighborhood,

but the house's proximity to Main Street can't be beat. I roll out

of bed for a 6am yoga class (at a terrific studio btw, Yoga works) a

half a block away, the hip/organic people-watching hot spot, Urth

Cafe is literally on the corner, a raw food restaurant and Peet's

Coffee (so much better than Starbuck's!) are all within steps of the

house, as well as lots of little shops, a bodega-like grocery store,

a tiny little gelato place AND a Ben and Jerry's. There's a neighborhood farmer's market every Sunday morning, which is also a happenin' event, as well as the historic little library nearby, which is sweet and terribly convenient. There is a $2000 Security Deposit

Im a retired actor.I live here and share my home with my son, travelers and vacationers. We are blessed to be living here in this great little Beach side neighborhood. We have Surf Shops, Restaurants and plenty more....and 3 blocks to the beach. People always ask me where Im going to retire....the answer is right here.

John P. McCormack purchased this apartment in 1994

First of all I came to LA to be Act. Real Estate came after that. Once I realized I would be here for a while I started looking. To me California was and always will be synonymous with the Pacific. this neighborhood is eclectic. Now 19 years later we are still here.

Beautiful, restorative beach getaway

  • 5 of 5
This property has it all. A beautiful garden, comfortable and clean apartments, proximity to the beach and shops/bars/cafes, and even an outdoor rainfall shower. You scarcely need a car while you're here -- everything is reachable by foot or on the bike. The property is lovingly maintained by the owner. The one-bedroom unit I rented came with high quality towels, linens, and kitchen supplies. If you come with your clothes, everything else is ready for you to start living your Santa Monica life. The evenings are quiet as it is located on a one-way street set back from the main shopping street. The neighborhood has it all: yoga, upscale cafes/restaurants/bars, boutiques, and a beach with 25+ uninterrupted miles of bike path. A Whole Foods is nearby, but try the local organic produce store and Sunday farmers market, too. The owner goes out of his way to make sure you are comfortable. While there is no garage, on-street parking with the permit (provided) is no hassle. If you are looking for a respite by the beach with access to amazing restaurants and nightlife, this is your place. I could not recommend it more highly!
