Overview

Pacific Palisades Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 2 bath just blocks from the beach.

The Heart House is located in Santa Monica Canyon, part of L.A.'s Pacific Palisades. Our house is just a block to the beach and only a 5 minute walk to the world famous Will Rogers Beach, also known as “Bay Watch Beach". This charming bungalow is perfect for couples or families with 2 children. Two Bedrooms, two bathrooms, a King size bed in the Master Bedroom and two twins in the 2nd Bedroom. House features include complete privacy behind beautiful Redwood Fence and Gate. There is a spacious Indoor/Outdoor Room for entertaining and relaxing. Other features include Free Wi-Fi High Speed Internet connectivity, DirecTV, all new Stainless Steel appliances, 50' LED Flat screen HD television, beautiful floor to ceiling brick gas Fireplace in the Living Room, a four person Jacuzzi Hot Tub and mini ping pong table for the kids. Parking is provided for one car on the property as well as ample street parking. Seven restaurants are easily accessible within a 2 minute walk, as well as a small market and liquor store.

No keys to deal with or lose during your stay. Both the Front Gate and Front Door to the house is controlled by an Electronic Door lock and both use the same pass-code, for your convenience! You simply get a 4 digit code to make your stay that much easier.

Not only is your ideal vacation bungalow close to the beach, but you also have easy access to Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, Malibu and all of Los Angeles, including West Los Angeles, Westwood, Brentwood and all of Western Los Angeles County. UCLA, Pepperdine, The Getty Museum, Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, Westwood, Beverly Hills, Hollywood and Universal Studios are all an easy drive. And Six Flags Magic Mountain, Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm are all within an hour’s drive. And if Art and Culture is your thing, there are too many places to list here within an hour’s drive.

We are excited to announce that a brand new Perry's Cafe and Bike Rental just opened at the beach by the Heart House so renting bikes has never been easier! Just walk down the block to the beach, rent your bikes and head down the bike path to visit Santa Monica, Venice, Marina Del Rey and beyond!

About Colette Sherouse & Lisa Davison

The owners of this lovely beach bungalow chose us to represent their property to help guarantee your stay in their home will be a vacation dream come true. We both live and work in Santa Monica and love being part of this amazing beach community. We have a wealth of information about the area and are here to assist you in any way we can.

Why Colette Sherouse & Lisa Davison chose Pacific Palisades

You can walk everywhere. If your #1 priority is the beach walk down the block, through the tunnel and you've arrived. Do you like Fine Dining, rustic Italian, Margaritas and Mexican Food? You'll pass them all on the way to the beach! Forgot your sunscreen, razor or missing your favorit magazine? That too is a short walk away at your local convenience store.

What makes this bungalow unique

The Heart House is the perfect vacation spot because you never have to use your car once you arrive. You can rent bikes right on the bike path and ride up and down the coast or walk to the beach and neighborhood restaurants and bars. Or...it is the perfect location to use as a home base as you explore the many different attractions this world class city has to offer. You choose!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The Heart House is in the perfect location. It is clean and fresh with everything that you could need. Unlike the previous reviewer we didn’t find the lack of air conditioning to be a problem as opening the windows (protected by anti-insect mesh) created a cool breeze and the heating system can be set to circulate cool air – there are ceiling vents in each room. Colette met us with a bottle of wine and was very kind and helpful throughout our stay. We used it as a base for visiting the usual tourist attractions such as Universal Studios, Warner Bros tour (we got to be on the Big Bang Theory set!) and Hollywood etc. as well as Santa Monica shopping and the beach.

Well maintained and perfect size for our family.

  • 4 of 5

The home was just right and not to big considering we spent most of our time in the LA area. Was close to beach and restaurants which was great. The property was fairly quite but the one thing we wish it had was air condionting. Overall it was a great trip for our family with much needed time to get away. We will use your service again in the future. Thanks for everything!!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

An ideal spot to use as a base to explore the craziness that is LA as well as downtime getting over LA.

The property is excellently presented and maintained and Lisa's advice when we arrived was perfect and Collette's follow-up to ensure everything was also well received.

Basic amenities within walking distance and would recommend Marita Tex Mex and the Golden Bull all down the road for eating.

Will be back and recommend

Heart House Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I had a terrific time on our recent visit to LA and Heart House was a big contributor. The house was spotlessly clean, well equipped, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The location near Santa Monica, Malibu and Pacific Palisades was perfect for all of our requirements. Lisa met us upon arrival and was very attentive to all our needs, providing great recommendations for shopping and restaurants. There are places to eat within walking distance and we enjoyed the Montana Avenue area, which is a short drive. I would not hesitate to recommend Heart House and look forward to returning.

Heart House A a LOVEly Home

  • 5 of 5

Once again we thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations at the Heart House. Quiet, secluded corner spot, a 5 min walk to the ocean, which is just down the street. Everything you need is at your fingertips. Of course comfortable beds, a must, all in great condition. The Hot Tub a plus.

We had beautiful warm days and cool nights that were made cozy with a gas fireplace, and central heat if needed.

We will be back.....

Map

Rustic Canyon Park is just a brisk walk or 2 minute drive away. This lovely neighborhood park boasts a shaded playground, tennis courts, basketball, baseball and a local outdoor pool. Behind the bungalow is shady, secluded streets and winding trails for hikers. Also, Temescal Gateway Park, just a 4 minute ride from your bungalow is nestled in a quiet canyon and is bordered by the majestic Santa Monica Mountains. Although the park is conveniently close to the city, its unparalleled natural beauty will make you feel as though you've entered another world.
