Los Angeles House Rental Photos and Description

3BR/3BTH with a Chefs Kitchen in a central location to everything.

**Home is continually updated (most recent Oct 14') at the request of guests to give the best amenities possible! Most recently the addition of a custom built walnut California King to master bedroom, espresso maker in addition to Keurig, bluetooth wireless surround sound to connect from your phone or Ipod, and two Queen AeroBeds for additional guests to sleep on for large groups.**

This modern designer boutique hotel style home in more than 2050 square feet is located just 3 miles straight down Jefferson Blvd to the beach, minutes to Santa Monica, Hollywood, Manhattan Beach, and Beverly Hills. Walking distance to Sprouts Farmers Market and Pavilions for fresh and organic groceries, and also to Westfield at Culver City shopping mall with its great restaurants and shopping. A very short drive or 20 minute walk to The Bridge with an IMAX theater and more shops.

Beautiful custom furniture, maple hardwood floors, wood burning fireplace, 120+' projector screen, and an array of exotic tile inside and out will make you disappointed to leave. In addition, all the bed linens are at least 400 thread count Egyptian cotton and sateen to ensure you always get a good nights rest and luxurious spa like towels for all baths as well.

The very spacious master suite has vaulted ceilings and a custom Walnut California King sized bed with a Posturepedic memory foam mattress, Pyrenees down comforter and finished off with 540 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets for a great nights sleep! In addition, the master has an attached and private spa-style bathroom with sit-in steam shower equipped with Grohe shower head and body sprayer along with separate jacuzzi tub for relaxing after a long day seeing the city. 48" HDTV with premium satellite channels, NetFlix, and DVD player will ensure you are entertained or relaxed at all hours, depending on your preference.

The 2nd bedroom features a top quality full size bed with a memory foam mattress, down comforter, and Egyptian cotton sheets, Ipod dock/alarm clock speakers, and a full bathroom with tub/shower just outside of the bedroom.

The 3rd bedroom is an office/bedroom and has a top of the line full size futon which truly rivals the other beds in terms of comfort and has bedding like all other beds in the house.

The Living room has massive HD projector which expands up to 120' along with 5.1 built in surround sound and DVD player to make movies or sporting events memorable. If you want to listen to music you can connect wirelessly via bluetooth to the surround sound system or plug in your phone/Ipod via an auxiliary cable to enjoy the wonderful sound system. Complete satellite (DirecTV) with all premium movie channels and cable. Sleeping arrangement in the living room is two very large, flat, comfortable and firm (not too firm) couches which easily convert into two separate beds larger than a twin each or combined into one larger bed between the size of a queen and king. 3rd full bathroom with shower is located conveniently away from other bedrooms for its own privacy for those guests sleeping in the living room.

The large and open, custom designed kitchen featured on TV cooking shows is loaded with everything you will need to make gourmet meals. You are equipped with GE Monogram: convection/standard oven, microwave, refrigerator, Keurig Coffee Maker and a Jenn-Air 5 burner cook top. Toaster oven, panini press, blender, rice cooker, pots, pans, and very nice and contemporary stemware round it all out. In addition, you will find all the basic spices, oils, etc that you need to make your culinary experience complete without having to purchase every little thing.


If you want to enjoy the beautiful Southern California weather, the large gas outdoor stainless steel BBQ and seating area, backyard fire pit, and outdoor speakers make the indoor/outdoor experience complete.


Cable wireless internet with download speeds of 15-20 mbs/sec will ensure you are connected all over the property including the backyard. Home office is equipped with a computer, printer, scanner and telephone with free calls anywhere in the US. All for your use.

Washer and Dryer located in seperate laundry area of home.

Recessed halogen lighting throughout the home with dimmers lets you set any mood you like.

Home is equipped with a tankless hot water heater to ensure no guests run out of hot water when using any of the 3 full bathrooms with showers.

Central HVAC (Heating and Air Conditioning) ensures you are comfortable at all times.

Wood burning fireplace to heat up those brisk evenings (not very many in Los Angeles!).

Spa quality towels/linens, more than enough blankets to cover all guests and top of the line pillows for all the sleeping areas are provided.

Home is perfect for vacationers (foreign and domestic), family get-togethers, corporate clients, filming, and temporary housing for local residents needing short term accommodations.


The rates are calculated using the base rent below for triple occupancy and then an additional fee of $40/guest per night after the 3rd guest. Property sleeps 4 in real beds, 2 on a futon which has the top of the line futon mattress and rivals the beds in terms of comfort, 2 on comfortable couches in the living room, and 4 on 2 queen size air mattresses (AeroBeds) which are very comfortable and you can read the guest reviews about them. 12 total comfortably.

Base rates:

$250/night (triple occupancy)



** I will be flexible with check in and out as long as there are not other guests coming or leaving the same day.


Driveway parking for one car and wide open street parking for essentially as many vehicles as you would like.


The street is very wide and quiet with almost no traffic except a few nearby residents making it perfect for kids to play in. One block up the street the children can enjoy the basketball courts and baseball fields in addition to a grassy park with benches great for relaxing and picnicking.


Sprouts Farmers Market and Pavilions (Gourmet grocery store) are both located less than 1/2 mile away. Culver City and Playa Vista Farmers Markets are both less than 2 miles away featuring fresh organic produce grown in California. If interested, let me know and I will give you the schedule!

About Shawn Sanders

I grew up in Santa Monica and have lived in So Cal my home life. I love to travel all over the world and also enjoy any outdoor activity and sports. Yoga, golf, fishing, hiking/backpacking are just a few of my interests.

In my travels I have stayed at many fantastic hotels and resorts and try to bring that same experience for travelers staying in my home.

Shawn Sanders purchased this house in 2005

Why Shawn Sanders chose Los Angeles

The property is truly beautiful and was constructed only a few years back and is in a fabulous location for everything the city of LA has to offer. If you want to see it all, then this puts you in about as central a location as you can find.

We enjoyed our stay very much. There were five of us here on a business trip. We were very comfortable and really enjoyed watching the Warriors game on the projection screen in the living room. It was easy to get to, a safe neighborhood and close to the grocery store and shops. Loved the thoughtful bottle of wine and Keurig coffee in the morning! Thanks!

This house is just as described by the owner; everything is top notch and he has gone out of his way to provide a comfortable convenient stay. It's a perfect place for a family gathering and the location is great for accessing both the west and east sides of LA. I definetely would stay here again! So much nicer than a hotel!! Thanks for a great weekend Shawn.

Great find

  • 5 of 5

My colleagues and I loved Shawn's house! The house itself is fantastic - it is comfortable, spacious, and the furnishings are lovely. It's conveniently located to the highway and airport, and within a walk or short drive to many restaurants and shopping centers.

Shawn was a great host - he was very communicative and helpful, and checked in to make sure we were finding everything we needed. There were several nice touches such as keurig coffee and nice shampoos and soaps, which made us feel well cared for. I will definitely stay here again when I'm back in LA.

Amazing Stay! Great Location and Home!

  • 5 of 5

My Goodness, talk about the perfect home for a large group of people! The home was everything I could have wished for plus more. This was my first time renting an VRBO and Shawn went above and beyond answering all of my questions. I had a group of ten guys in town for a fishing trip and we all slept comfortably. That was without using both air mattresses! Shawn got us into the house as soon as it was available and had the greatest binder that had everything you could ever want. the fire wall in the backyard was amazing and made it nice to sit outside in the night. I highly recommend this property and will hopefully have the opportunity to stay here again in the future! Thank you Shawn so much for making it so easy on me!

Will definitely stay again

  • 4 of 5

This home was so big by LA standards and perfectly met the needs of our party including two small children and three adults. The futon mattress in the office is memory foam and AMAZING. The house was clean and easy to access with the lockbox, perfect for our late night arrival. The master bath was large and spa-like. We were happy to have use of the laundry machine and off street parking spot and be in a good location near Sepulveda stores and restaurants. The decor is definitely modern bachelor - concrete counters, trendy sinks, and dark modern colors. The dining table was enormous and working with the host was easy.
