Valentine purchased this house in 2001
Best vibrations, best light, best location.
Space, light, calm, charm and comfort, steps to Main St and the beach. You got it all.
We had a brilliant time at this Santa Monica house. It's location is great, just a few minutes walk to shops, restaurants and the fabulous beach. The house has everything you could possibly need (and more!). Our children were in the separate addition and loved it and the adults loved relaxing on the deck after a hard day shopping and sight seeing. It really was the perfect location to explore LA and the surrounding area. We left it with much regret and a longing to go back some day. Valentine was really helpful and did everything she could to ensure that we had a great holiday. We can't recommend this property enough.
This house is amazing. It made for the perfect vacation! We took three teenagers and they had the back house to themselves which was wonderful. It is only 2 blocks to the thriving Main Street and 3 blocks to the beach. Everything in the house was immaculate and made us feel right at home. We can't wait to go back!
We had a lovely stay in Santa Monica with our family....four kids, our nanny, and my husband and me. Plenty of space for us all. Amazing location...walkable to so many shops, restaurants, the beach, etcetera. Valentine was just fabulous to work with; very friendly and super helpful. My daughters fell in love with the cat who lives next door named snowflake and the neighbors would really sweet about letting them pet the cat all the time.
The downsides: parking is definitely a hassle! Do-able -- we always ended up finding a spot, but we did have to circle for 5 or 10 minutes almost anytime we took the car. (good news is you don't need to drive very often if you don't want to). Also, the house was a bit hot. It's the beach, so quite normal that there isn't AC...you only need it about a month a year, but we happened to be there during that time. (We don't have AC at home either, so we weren't any worse off!). I only point these things out so people aren't surprised. I used to live in SM so I was fully prepared for parking and heat. :)
All in all, a really lovely visit, and truly a most delightful family to rent from! And when you are staying in someone's house, it really makes a difference to me if there is a positive feeling coming from the family, and I definitely had that. We loved our stay! Thank you Valentine!!!!
I stayed in this house over the July 4th holiday along with my two teenage children and 3 adult friends. We had a fantastic time. The house looks just as charming in person as it does in photos. The owner has done an incredible job with the gardening and landscape around this home. The back yard and 2 patios are completely private to the renter. It was enjoyable to just stroll around the yard looking at all the interesting plants and flowers. The house was very clean and comfortable. My two teenagers stayed in the new addition, each in their own bedroom. It did get a little warm without air conditioning, but we managed with a fan to circulate the air. The beds were all very comfortable. The house is just two blocks from main street and about a five minute walk to the beach. The owner was very helpful in answering all of our questions before and during the stay. The only thing we missed was a centrally located television. It was the week of Tour de France and everyone had to gather in the master bedroom if they wanted to see the race. At very least, a television in the new addition for younger guests would have been beneficial. We would highly recommend this well equipped, well maintained home to anyone.
I rented this house for some out of town company. Some people were new to the area and one of the guests used to live in town. She was so thrilled to be right in the heart of everything she loved... Great shops, bars, and restaurants and the beach just a short walk away. The house was spacious and comfortable for our size group and had everything that we needed. The outdoor area was well manicured and provided a cozy spot to have your morning coffee or sunbathe in privacy.
The owner was very nice and even though out of the country for our stay would still respond to any questions I had while at the house. Highly recommend!
Our family of four (two children 5 yrs and 3 yrs) had a relaxing and comfortable two week stay in this amazing home.
The bedrooms were comfortable, the bathrooms are spacious and nice, the family room was perfect for reading and we made many tastey meals in the kitchen. This is a very nice home. It is clean and well maintained and located in a great neighborhood.
The owners had toys, books, and games that our children enjoyed playing with.
The home is very close to the beach, shopping, and many delicious restaurants and grocery stores.
Yoga classes, roller-blading, kite-flying, bowling,summer camps for kids, large choice of classes at Santa Monica College..
