Located in one of the most desirable locations in all of Los Angeles, steps to beach, canyon setting, walk to Santa Monica Promenade and the famous Pacific Fun Boardwalk and Pier. This beautiful Guesthouse Getaway studio accommodates 4 people comfortably, and up to 6. It has a large deck and patio for luscious outdoor living and dining. Comfortable Queen bed in main room , and sleeping loft can fit up to 3 in a queen mattress and twin Aero bed. The remodeled kitchen is fully equipped with a Large refrig. Bathroom with shower and granite sink. Large walk-in closet provides easy storage. 2 skylights are above inside the open rafter ceiling. BBQ in patio. Large Jacuzzi is on main house premises. Ride our bicycles to the beach bike path that goes for miles from Malibu to Marina del Rey, and take a quick drive to gorgeous hiking trails. Wedged between Pacific Palisades and Santa Monica, you'll enjoy shopping and dining on Montana Ave, Main Street and 3rd Street Promenade. Centrally located near Malibu, Beverly Hills, downtown LA, Disneyland, Universal Studios, etc. So much to do, or just sit & relax.
The place was relatively easy to find and is walkable to the beach-just down the road. The kitchen is well equipped and the bed is comfortable with a sofa bed and additional mattresses in the loft area-ideal for kids (doubt adults could sleep up there that easily). Len is very friendly. We used the bikes provided on our first night to cycle to Santa Monica pier-about 20 minutes by bike. The outdoor area is lovely with a patio heater, which we used in April. Seats and garden area are lovely. The description was accurate and the property was clean and in good order. Didn't know the property had laundry facilities and not sure where this was as we would have liked to use this. Parking was fine and if you couldn't get on the road outside, there was a parking space opposite. Overall our stay was a comfortable one and the property is ideal if you like being near the beach. Drive to places like Universal and Hollywood around 40 mins. I would recommend this property to couples and families for a short break in LA.
Cute small guest house in the back of the owners home. Place could use a good cleaning and updates but was comfortable for the price we paid. The wifi was unpredictable and pickup cost was unreasonably high but overall nice people and place.
I loved the location of this property, within walking distance to the beach and very close to restaurants and shops in Santa Monica.
Thank you for your hospitality!
The location of the guest house was perfect. Though very quiet at night, it was close to a lot of great attractions all around: the beach, the beautiful park and neighbourhood of Pacific Palisades, the Getty museum and villa, the Venice canals, 3rd Street promenade, etc. Len and Jan were very welcoming and provided us with many useful suggestions about resources in the neighbourhood (supermarkets, restaurants, walking paths, etc). They also did their best to make us feel comfortable. Even if we lost a key during our stay (we were so sorry!), they were very nice about it. We didn't use the courtyard because the weather was a bit chilly when we were there. The only reason we give this rental a four instead of a five star rating, is that, although clean and comfortable, it could be - to our taste - a little tidier (ex.: leftover products in the fridge and cupboards that were past their expiration date, objects overcrowding the pathway to the house). As it is, it has an easygoing charm that suited us well, but could put off some people...and may easily be improved.
The pictures pretty much tell the story. Kitchen is great and allows you to cook as if at home. Location to the beach was fantastic and Len was available when we needed him, without being overbearing. We didn't use the loft as the stairs are pretty treacherous for kids, but the fold out couch worked fine. Wifi was a bit iffy, but who cares...get off your devices and have some family fun!
Len makes this an awesome place to stay as he is SO accommodating . Its private and quiet, but near the beach. We enjoyed riding his bicycles a couple of times to the beach. There was always HOT water. Bed was super comfy and cottage warm, as there was a heater. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you Len. Will happily refer our friends in future.
