Santa Monica House Rental Photos and Description

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...

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!

AMAZING SANTA MONICA HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to stay for a week at this amazing craftsman style home just a few blocks from the beautiful Santa Monica Beach and the wonderful shopping, restaurants and nightlife of downtown. From the begining, the owner's were amazing to work with and very responsive to all of our questions and requests.

Once arriving at the house, the pictures did not do the property justice. Everything you could possibly need is contained in this home. We had several family members traveling with us, including our two children and the accommodations were perfect for the entire family. Once we parked, it was easy to walk to just about everything we needed. We are hoping to make this a yearly trip and will definitely do our best to come back to this beautiful home in the town of Santa Monica.

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!

EXCELLENT LOCATION/WONDERFUL HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 weeks there in July 2011. We felt at home as soon as we arrived. The location is perfect (walking distance from the beach, restaurants, farmers market.....) and the house itself was perfect for us and our 2 boys (4 and 6) with lots of books, games....
There is absolutely everything you need (TV, washer/dryer, well equipped kitchen, but also bikes, skate boards...).
The garden is peaceful and colorful and it was big enough for the boys to play and have a good time. We had a wonderful time in this house and for sure we'll come again. Thanks to Valentine (the owner) and her friend, who have always been available for questions or advice.
