About Julie Rhee

My husband and I live on site with our twin boy and girl (2 years old). The design of the house was inspired by a 10 year sailing voyage around the world by my husband. The house is powered totally by solar energy and has such features as a 20' sundial and Meridian line that tells the date at solar noon. The house is naturally cooled by the ocean breezes and solar-assisted radiant heating. All rooms in the house open to private decks and gardens.

Julie Rhee purchased this house in 2012

Perfectly gorgeous and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
We traveled down the coast staying in luxury hotels along the way, ending our 2-week journey here... It was wonderful! Spacious with gorgeous architecture, new and clean, appointed with all you need! Great open shower and bath. We found it beautiful and relaxing and convenient: hanging out in the back yard, watching the sunset from the rooftop deck, walking or biking down to the beach... You'll want a car--and parking is only on the street, with which we had no problems. The beach, and Main Street, is not super close but walkable. There is no laundry facility. The hosts are responsive and generous for anything you might need. We had two mother-daughter pairs in our party and the space was perfect for us. (The washing up area of the bathroom upstairs is open, but this was actually very convenient as the sink, shower, and toilet are separate -- better for sharing!) We will definitely be back the next time we travel to LA!

Wonderful getaway.

  • 5 of 5
I would definitely recommend staying here, if you plan on visiting California and want to stay in the Santa Monica area. This guest house is just amazing, super clean and has everything you need for a vacation getaway. The owners, were very friendly and made us feel comfortable from day one. As a family of four, with two young children 9yrs and 6yrs, the location was perfect for us. You have the best of both worlds, the option of walking down to the beaches, both Santa Monica beach or Venice beach are not too far, or one block away is... the shopping and nightlife on main street. If you really like shopping, you can drive to the 3rd street promenade. For us, coming from Scottsdale Arizona It was all about the coastline and the beach :) We would definitely stay there again, and hopefully for longer the next time. Loved this place.

Lovely Santa Monica experience!

My daughter and I stayed in this lovely home for a week. Fabulous location. We walked daily to the beach. The main house is adjacent for any needs you may have. Hope to stay here again on our next SM visit.

I miss those ocean breezes!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 stayed at Julie's guest house for 4 nights. It was a wonderful experience...the house was one of the highlights of our vacation.

This house really is amazing. You can open all the windows and doors and the breeze comes through. The design of the house is brilliant. Although we were right behind the main house there was plenty of privacy. And the furnishings and fixtures were very high quality. The house was immaculate. The kids loved the loft bedroom, and my husband and I loved the rooftop patio.

After several nights in hotel rooms my family appreciated how we could spead out in this house. You can easily loose someone in this house! Note that if you don't like stairs this is not the house for you.

Location: You can easily walk to the beach and explore Santa Monica if you don't mind walking. But you'll need a car or bike to shop or eat at the nearest Whole Foods. Loved that there was a parking spot for us in the driveway. If you walk straight down to the beach you'll hit a Perry's where we rented bikes, surfboards and boogie boards.

Incredible Place and Hospitable Owners

  • 5 of 5
This place is truly amazing! Beautiful architecture, more amenities than you'll need and the owners go above and beyond to make your stay a special one. Location is fantastic with parking provided for you on the owner's driveway at no additional cost. This is a bargain for what you get- especially in Santa Monica. No regrets, would rent it again in a heartbeat!

Amazing home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
My family (6 month old, 3 year old, my husband and I) stayed at this guesthouse for 3 weeks and we completely fell in love with it!

I'm not sure where to start! It is absolutely beautiful! If you have an appreciation for good design you will be also fall in love! Windows everywhere, beautiful wood staircase & floors on second level, nice lighting, lots of storage, comfy beds. The floor to ceiling glass doors allow for that wonderful indoor/outdoor California living and for flooding the space with amazing sunlight & ocean air throughout the day.

Everything has been thought of from the fully equipped kitchen, the water cooler & the Nespresso machine! Julie & Thane supplied a high chair and pack & play with linens for our youngest, which was very much appreciated, as we did not have to worry about bringing them. Julie even took the time to send me a list of the closest playgrounds to visit with our children. They made sure we had everything we needed while still giving us our space and privacy.

Having a parking space in the driveway and access to the laundry room were both amazing especially with the young children.

You can absolutely walk to the beach! It is a beautiful 10-15 minute walk! We stopped on Main Street at the Farmer's market on a Sunday (you must go!)! With the children we mostly chose to drive since they are so young and tire easily and you can park at the beach for free for up to 2 hours.

For those that need it, the Wi-Fi connection is great, no issues whatsoever.

Having a backyard with outdoor furniture was great. We were able to kick the ball around with our son, hang out on the sectional and even do an outdoor Easter egg hunt for our kids on Easter Sunday.

The ocean & city view on the roof top deck is spectacular! Definitely catch a sunset or two up there!

The location is really perfect! We felt very central to everything. There was a lot to see in Santa Monica, of course the Pier, the beach, the parks, shops & restaurants. Venice Beach is right next door...and access to Lincoln/Route 1 was blocks away and takes you along the coast to visit all the beach cities or connect to the other major freeways.

My husband never gives 5 stars (he thinks there's always room to improve) but honestly everything was perfect and as another reviewer stated we intend on making this our “home away from home” on all our future LA visits. If you’re considering staying here search no further! Book it now! You won’t regret it!
