About the property

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.

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.

Clean and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and our 3 children (ages 13, 11, and 4) had a wonderful stay in Santa Monica. There was adequate room in the house for all of us and our luggage, definitely better than a hotel room and less expensive. The house was clean, comfortable and in a perfect location. In a quiet neighborhood but easy to get to Santa Monica Beach, restaurants or to the highway. We would definitely stay there again if we travel back to California.

Well-located and comfortable cottage

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four stayed at La Casa for five nights. The bedrooms and living area were comfortable and the kitchen is well-equipped for preparing breakfast and snacks. The proximity to the 10 is convenient, and we were not aware of highway noise at night. The house is within walking distance of the Third Street Promenade and the Santa Monica Pier for older children and adults.

Spacious and clean apartment in a good location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is nice and spacious, with good sized bedrooms and lounge. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking and the entire place is really well presented - very clean and in good condition.

Location-wise, it's a 15 minute brisk walk away from the pier, beach and main shopping area. With the lack of similar properties in Santa Monica, I feel that this apartment is a good price for its location.

Check in procedures and communication were smooth. The owners were also kind enough to allow us to drop off our suitcases prior to check in and again leave them there for the day after check out which was an added bonus.

Perfect Rental in a Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this quaint and lovely home for a long weekend and had a wonderful time!

Kitchen is new and beautiful, and home is spacious and had everything we could have needed and more. Perhaps the best part is the location...just a block from the 10 (Santa Monica Highway) and just blocks from the beach, 3rd street promenade and all our favorite Santa Monica attractions! Owners respond almost immediately to any correspondence and were lovely to do business with. Absolutely recommend this rental and will be staying there again when our travels take us back to Santa Monica! Thanks for a fabulous weekend in your home!

Great apartment for a stay in Santa Monica

  • 4 of 5

Really well equipped apartment. Great transport links and a easy 15 min walk to the beach and Santa Monica centre. Supermarket and 7-11 close by. Quiet neighbourhood. Host was accommodating and easy to contact if we needed to. We stayed with 2 children under 9 and this apartment was great for them.
