I'm a studio photographer with two sons, one who is in college and the other is still in elementary school . We are extremely fortunate to live in such an ideal location next to the beach. I spend a lot of my free time playing tennis, beach volleyball, and entertaining in my home.

When I first discovered Santa Monica Canyon I knew that I could live here forever. It is a small and friendly community surrounded by greenery with hidden steps and various levels of the small canyon to explore. It is completely unlike any other area in Los Angeles. It feels very remote tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet Downtown L.A.and Hollywood are only 30 minutes away. Truly the best of both worlds!
On certain days one can hear the sound of waves breaking as they roll up the canyon. Other unique benefits are the tropical parrots singing in my trees and as well as hawks soaring above. I love that we can walk or bike to great restaurants and pubs and Santa Monica has a fantastic bus system for those who don't have access to a car.
This house is so much more than expected. The picture doesn't do it justice. The linens were high quality, the kitchen had everything you need to prepare multitude of meals, and the view is spectacular! The beach is a great walk away as well as restaurants! Check out all the shops on Montana St. If you are a Santa Monica vacationer, I promise that this house & it's location will give you a new perspective on the area. Our 9-month old loved it and she's very picky ;-)
I'm a local SM gal who had to have a bit of surgery & my family came in from NY for a week to help me recoup. We all stayed at Bader's gorgeous home - 4 adults/2 children (kids ages 7& 5). It was absolutely perfect. The kids loved the tree house, the bunk beds & all the fun games & toys Bader provided, which even included bikes & scooters!! We walked to the beach & all through the beautiful canyon streets. It's such a peaceful, private, lovely spot... I know that I was able to rest & start feeling great again so much more quickly as a result of being there. Magical place!! We had the best time. Bader is a wonderful host, was incredibly thoughtful & attentive to needs/likes of all of us (grandma to little ones). Staying here was one of our family's greatest summer highlights! I would highly recommend this amazing home to anyone. Thank you, Bader!
It is not often that you find a house like this to stay in. I say this because when I travel with my two boys, we enjoy staying in private homes instead of hotels, because it feels more like home and we are not a big restaurant family. But sometimes it feels like we are intruding, but not here. To be able to stay in this lovely, tranquil, beautifully appointed home was great, but to feel perfectly at home was a real treat for us. The moment we walked in the kids felt at home and I relaxed. The furnishings are crazy comfortable, the bed linens and towels were exquisite and the owner's kitchen is so well-stocked, I was actually a bit jealous that she gets to cook in this kitchen everyday. Oh did I mention the bathtub, no crazy bubbles or jets, just deep and long, perfect for our tall family. Two outdoor spaces with terrific views gave us the chance to chat late into the night and have fresh Cali breakfasts while watching the hummingbirds buzz around and the mist roll off the Pacific. The walk to the beach is a breeze, even with a somewhat cranky six year old. The market on Montana is a short drive and has everything you'll need. Finally, her selection of books for adults and kids was a perfect fit for my family and she even left us the Wii,which I am eternally grateful for. An intimate, canyon experience not to be missed. We can't wait to book here again.
Beautiful house and gardens, with great privacy and a nice view. The house and outdoor spaces are very well appointed, beautifully decorated and yet so comfortable and inviting. The kitchen has anything you would normally need, the linens are excellent and the entire place was scrupulously clean. The best part for me was the wonderfully comfortable bed in the master bedroom. It's often difficult to sleep when away from home, but the master suite was a quiet comfortable refuge and the bed was fantastic.
We would definitely stay again.
Our family of 6 plus dog enjoyed a happy and relaxing 3-week stay in this idyllic Los Angeles location. True to the owner's description this is a very comfortable and family-friendly home in a beautiful and peaceful residential neighborhood. We took advantage of the home's proximity to the beach and terrific neighborhood parks, excellent shopping and restaurants in Santa Monica, Brentwood, and the Palisades. Our children appreciated the games and toys left for their use and the owner and house manager were very pleasant to deal with. This was our first VRBO experience and it met our expectations, thank you!
I just spent a week in this home, my first vacation using this type of service. And it was an absolute pleasure.
I was traveling with my wife, our young son, and my parents, and we all stayed comfortably in the house.
The home itself is a warm, comfortable place to stay, with a spectacular ocean view, large master bedroom and a homey, inviting style. Everything described by the owner was exactly as promised.
The location, while quiet and peaceful, was very close to everything we wanted and needed. The beach, shopping, and major roads and highways were only a few minutes' drive. Our first trip to LA, we took in (and highly recommend) the Getty Museum, Griffith Observatory, Hollywood Boulevard, Venice Beach and so much more.
This is a perfect home-away-from-home for any family traveling to Santa Monica, and the owner was very accommodating and easy to deal with.
Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, health/beauty spa,beach, bike riding, amusement parks, movie studio tours.
