Relax in our charming, rustic guest cottage which easily accommodates 4 people (6 possible for an extra fee). The main room has a high ceiling with exposed beams and two skylights, and a very comfortable queen sleep sofa for 2 people. The bedroom has a queen black lacquer bed and a closet with ample space. Lots of storage space exists in cabinets with granite counters and a full, galley kitchen with new appliances. A simple bathroom contains large stall shower and all towels and linens provided. The area is very quiet and for added convenience, the owners live on site in the main house if they are in town and can easily answer all of your sight seeing questions.
This is a perfect rental for those who also want to rent the main house (VRBO 35735) if they have a large group and is the only property within miles that can sleep up to 15 people comfortably.
Local sights are numerous and include: one-block walk to Montana Avenue and exquisite shopping, restaurants and markets. A half-mile walk to the Third Street Promenade is delightful, where on weekends you can view jugglers, street musicians and pranksters, catch a film and eat in one of the multitude of great restaurants on the street, or buy gourmet and organic food at the farmers' market on Wednesday and Saturday mornings until noon. The Pacific Ocean is 8 blocks away and you can rent a bike, roller skates or simply enjoy the sand. You can walk all the way to the Venice Pier and the Santa Monica Pier is just one mile away.
The coastal road or Pacific Coast Highway is an inviting and beautiful ride and Malibu is 10 minutes away, with Zuma Beach 30 minutes by car. There is hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains in Temescal Canyon off of Sunset Blvd., as well as horseback riding.
We are international travelers and business people with an interest in hospitality and meeting people of different cultures.
This is a charming place in a superb location which can be rented together with the main house (VRBO 35735) to accommodate up to 15 people for a family reunion.
Together with the main house which sleeps 10 comfortably and has great BBQ facilities and ample seating, it is a unique place to have all the family in to relax and is so close to shopping and outdoor markets and entertainment that you never need a car in the area. We are in the prized North of Montana neighborhood, so safe and a very short walk to the ocean.
Additional sports and other activities like rock climbing in Temescal and Solstice Canyons, all water sports like jet skiing, sailing, roller blading on the Boardwalk and visiting the Pier in Santa Monica and its Amusement Park. Third Street Promenade has great shopping, open air farmers' markets on Wednesday and Saturday mornings and family friendly restaurants and dozens of cinemas. Montana Avenue has chic boutiques, spa services galore and family friendly restaurants with a retro cinema/art house. Bicycle rentals are easy to find all around the Boardwalk at Perry's locations and in the Bicycle Centers at the Santa Monica Place Mall.
