Los Angeles Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4-6

It’s not every day you find a rental in a beach town that’s equally perfect for adults and families with children, but this rental easily accommodates both surprisingly well!

Bring the whole family – or your closest friends – along on your vacation. With a queen bed in the master bedroom, 2 twin beds in the second bedroom, and a queen sofa sleeper in the living room, this rental accommodates up to 6 people.

This charming 2+1 bungalow unit fosters a sense of spaciousness with high ceilings accented by classic crown molding, along with the beauty of natural hardwood flooring.

Relax in front of a fire on chilly evenings; in warmer weather sip your morning coffee (or evening wine) on the patio outside.

Do you enjoy cooking? The recently renovated kitchen is a joy to use with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops.

Convenience and fun is yours when you’re just 9 blocks away from the beach and Third Street Promenade and a short 12 blocks from the Santa Monica Pier!

Enjoy your stay as a family without worrying about “those stares” from others. The location of this unit means you can enjoy your children’s fun and laughter no matter what.

Complimentary street parking with permit is included with rental; in-driveway parking is $10 per night or $50 per week.

This charming 2+1 unit with old world charm has high ceilings, crown molding, gorgeous hardwood floors, fireplace, a skylight in master bedroom, and a fenced garden front yard. A queen bed with memory foam pillows in master, 2 twin beds in 2nd bedroom, and a queen sofa sleeper in living room will sleep up to 6 people. Remodeled granite bathroom & kitchen, stainless steel appliances including dishwasher and side by side refrigerator with ice maker. Convenient location - Walk to Beach, Promenade or Main St!

There is fenced front yard area with table and chairs that is for your use.

A week minimum may be required during certain times of the year.

We require a copy of your driver’s license, government issued identification or passport to complete the reservation.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a very good time in Santa Monica and Los Angeles. The traffic was crazy but we survived. Enjoyed the close location to the beach, the walk was a relatively easy 20 minute walk. We liked the close proximity to gas stations and groceries. That is one thing I would put in your binder is the location of the grocery stores with a map of Santa Monica. Our bedroom was very nice and the kids said their beds were very comfortable. Parking was very easy. We always seemed to get a spot right across the street on 9th. Everything in the house worked fine. The suite had everything we needed.

A great time in Santa Monica

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house, with all the amenities and conveniences, very close to the beach and the Santa Monica shopping area. It was a splendid time to hang out there! Highly recommended.

Convenient and adequate

  • 3 of 5

We were looking, on short notice, for an affordable AND convenient place to stay for two adults and three children (9-17) in Santa Monica during Easter weekend. This place did just that and gave us value for money. As such, I highly recommend it. In comparing your options, beware that the place is not as bright and spacious as it looks in the photo. The pullout couch is dated, as are floors, paint, curtains, the bathroom, and the information binder. But we cherished that the kitchen comes almost fully equipped for the average cook (no microwave) and there are plenty of towels and linens. There is a basic shared coin-operated washer and dryer out back (bring plenty of quarters). The location (corner of 9th and Michigan) is tree-lined and nice, with a table and four chairs in the small front lawn we'd easily have used had it been warmer. For the foodie or urbanite, the nearby main intersection between Pico and Lincoln is seedy and does not have much to offer; but there is a 7/11, a Subway, a Pollo Loco, a Starbucks, a doughnut place, and a Walmart. The access ramp to highway 10 is just around the corner (without the highway being a bother otherwise).

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I just wanted to correct you about the microwave, there is a stainless steel built in microwave directly over the stove. I'm not sure how you missed it, perhaps you were looking at counter level, but for future guests, rest assured that yes there is a microwave.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We three senior artist pals stayed at La Casa for one week. It is my 2nd time to stay there. The location could not be better. It was so easy to find it from the airport. It has easy access to all major roads and not far from the beach and shopping in Santa Monica. There is plenty of seating in the living room. The kitchen is well equipped and the appliances are new. The owner is friendly and really wanted to make us comfortable.
