A SANCTUARY IN SANTA MONICA: CHARMING LARGE CRAFTSMAN BEACH HOUSE

Santa Monica House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10 to 12)

Rare large 1906 luminous craftsman house with harmonous contempory additions filled with beautiful light all day long.

Ocean breeze is your air conditioning.

Each bedroom is equiped with a fan in case of heat wave.

Modern kitchen and high-ceiling master bedroom, both opening on the garden through their big French doors. Original box beam ceiling and wainscot wood panel in the living and dining rooms. Stand-up piano.

Backyard with chaise-lounges on a large wooden deck for private sun-bathing and hummingbirds watching, fountain and pound, outdoor dining. Relaxing sound of water.

At night, the garden illuminate with gorgeous lighting.

Tomatoes and strawberries growing in the front yard.

The house is 2 short blocks from trendy Main Street with its gourmet cafés and restaurants. You can do some shopping in the elegant clothing, shoes or gifts stores or pamper yourself in one of the many beauty/hair/nails/massage salons. The very popular Farmers Market is set 3 blocks away every Sunday morning. And with a 15 min walk you are at the pedestrian 'Third Street Promenade' with movie theaters, books stores, more restaurants, all the famous clothing stores and much, much more...

Santa Monica Beach is a 5 minutes walk from your door, mythical Venice Beach just 5 minutes more.

Run, surf the waves, ride a bike for an adventure on the beautiful bike path, or you can always choose to lay down on the sand and look for some dolphins passing by.

Please undestand that it is not a party house.

Beautiful Santa Monica House

  • 5 of 5
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.

Unbelievable House!

  • 5 of 5
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!

Great family stay in Santa Monica

  • 5 of 5
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!!!!

Owner's Response: We live all year parking our car in the street without waiting time 95% of the time. We also have the habit to bike and walk everywhere we can. (One of the bike has a rack with 2 steel baskets perfect to put Whole Foods grocerie bags. On Sundays, you can buy all your veggies for the week walking to the farmers market on Main and Ocean Park with the folding shopping cart.)
The new addition gets hot in summer, specially if you don't close the blinds to cut the direct sun. The best is to leave always the windows open (even the door upstairs) to let the air circulate. And you put a fan when you're there. I'll make sure there is enough fans for the rooms not already equipped with one.

Just As Pictured

  • 5 of 5
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.

Great house, Great location

  • 5 of 5
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!

top notch home away from home

  • 5 of 5
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.
