Tucked away in the ideal area of Santa Monica, this hidden retreat shares the beauty of the ocean with the upscale shopping and dining of Montana Ave, just blocks away from the 3rd St. Promenade; an open air market of unique shops, restaurants, theaters and artists, all adjacent to the ocean and the Santa Monica Pier. Also the picturesque Palisades Park, situated on the cliffs above the Pacific Coast Hwy with full ocean views and heavenly gardens, a cut above your average stroll in the park.
The apartment comes fully equipped with everything you’ll need to create the ideal vacation while immersed in the ultimate Santa Monica experience.

After a 14 hour flight from Australia, my husband and I were tired and a little disoriented. But we had no trouble finding our way into the cool peaceful bedroom of this apartment after a short taxi ride from LAX--Tina made it all so easy! After a few hours of restful sleep, we went exploring, and that's when we realised what a great choice this apartment had been. It's in such a beautiful neighbourhood, and so close to everything. We walked down to the beach, along the waterfront, and watched the sunset from under the pier. Then we wandered up to Third Street Promenade and found a great Mexican rstaurant for tapas and margaritas, then dinner. And then it was an easy walk back to the apartment. The apartment itself is beautifully appointed, in a lovely building with only a few other guests--who we never saw or heard. Over the next few days, we walked a few blocks down Montana Ave and did some shopping at the Pavilions supermarket (wine and antipasto mostly for us!), had a great Italian dinner at Spumoni on Montana (delicious gnocchi!), and even enjoyed a wonderful massage at The Massage Place on Montana. Our most memorable meal was probably brunch at Huckleberry Cafe on Wilshire Blvd--Green Eggs and Ham to die for! And every day we made our way to the beach or Palisades Park (two blocks away) to watch the sun melt into the Pacific. Magical!
Honestly, we were only looking for a few quiet days in Santa Monica to recover from the flight--a jumping off point for our five week trip to the US--but instead we found ourselves enchanted by this homey apartment, in a gorgeous neighbourhood, wishing we had more time to explore LA from here. Next time I guess :) Truly the best welcome to the US we could have asked for.
My wife & I needed a place to stay to visit our daughter, a local resident. This apt. was a great choice for us. It is very clean, it is up to date with modern appliances, has recessed lighting, it is quiet, and is walking distance to the overpass which leads to the beach, as well as to a variety of stores including a grocery store (5 blocks) and the infamous promenade. If you have a car, the garage is plenty big with ample space for both a car and bicycles. Extra bath towels were provided and also beach towels. Our daughter was impressed as she is very familiar with the types of apt’s being offered in that area. She was further impressed it has central air conditioning, something that is not all that common for this area. It has an open floor plan providing a spacious feeling. Large flat screen tv, an updated shower/bath with strong water flow from shower head round out this lovely apt. One minor suggestion for improvement is to have a solid door where the toilet is located instead of a door with smoked glass as when someone uses the commode in the middle of the night the light can be disrupting to the person that is still sleeping. We thoroughly enjoyed this accomodation and would definitely stay here again.
This property is just as advertised! It is very clean and the location is perfect. It is walking distance to the beach, 3rd street promenade, and the Santa Monica Pier. The bed is very comfortable. The check-in and check-out was easy and went smoothly. Having a place to park was also ideal. I would recommend checking out the place before grocery shopping - we bought our own condiments/spices, but the unit has all the necessary pots, pans and dishes. I would highly recommend this place!
Thank you so very much to H, E and T for such a lovely place to stay!! All of the pictures and descriptive reviews were spot on and were very helpful to us.
We have family in Santa Monica and in past years had stayed in a hotel. Never again! Paradise and Third offered us so much more. Thank you again, and we are already booked for our next visit!
Once in a while it is important to treat yourself to something special. We did that by arriving at Paradise and Third for a short stay pleasantly surprised by the charming atmosphere of our cozy cottage. Decorated with a little flair, your own parking space, kitchen and a great walkable location. We enjoyed the beautiful neighborhoods as well as a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed. Affordable and spacious...it is an easy choice! We will stay there again!
What a great spot. So convenient for everything. I was there for a business trip and my husband and daughter came to be with me and a little R&R. The apartment had everything we needed. As mentioned by another renter...check out what's in the apt. before going shopping as it already had some of the basics (dish washer liquid, toilet paper etc.)
We walked every where and the best thing about the apt. was the parking. It was great to have an extra spot when we had visitors.
The only drawback to the place as that the internet wasn't all that strong. I was there on business and ended up taking calls and doing business from the car in the garage where it worked much better.
Other than that...we'll be back!
Thanks Tina, for being a great host.
