Bedrooms 2
Space 1,100 sq. ft.
Property type townhome
Minimum Stay 4 - 5 nights


About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 5)

Many of my prime summer days are already booked but check my 2nd unit next door to this one (listing #946164). There will be no fighting over who gets the better bedroom since BOTH second-floor bedrooms are master suites with private baths... there is no inferior bedroom! The unit is equipped with a tankless water heater for endless hot water and high-efficiency central air conditioning; two features that not all places have but you will definitely appreciate during your stay. With only the $99 damage insurance fee there will be no deposit required except in certain circumstances. Rent my second unit right next door as well if you have a larger group.

Stay in this safe, private and extremely tranquil neighborhood oasis right in the heart of the Sunset Park district of world-renowned Santa Monica, California. This architecturally significant pride of ownership building is absolutely fantastic.

Wake up to a hot cup of dark roast extra bold coffee after a restful sleep in one of the two plush-top queen-sized beds encased in allergy barriers and quality linens. Sip your coffee out in one of your two private yards.

As the rest of Los Angeles bakes in sweltering heat, you'll be enjoying the gentle cool breezes blowing in off the Pacific Ocean. Rent a bike or electric scooter and go off to explore the extremely bicycle-friendly city for the day.

Relaxing on the living room sofa (which folds to an additional two person bed) you'll find it difficult not to utter WOW as you gaze out the 11-foot high floor to ceiling windows to your own private yard filled with black bamboo, exotic succulents and other rare and unusual plants and trees.

Just a short walk or bike ride to the beach and a hop skip and a jump away from 3rd Street Promenade, Bloomingdales, Santa Monica pier, Marina Del Rey with her flotilla filled harbor and the quirky antics at Venice Beach.

Easy access to the 10, 405 and 101 freeways make getting around town a breeze! Park your car in your dedicated space to avoid rush hour and climb aboard the light rail transit System to downtown LA and leave driving worries to Uber.

About Paul

I'm dedicated to making you come back year after year and to refer your friends! The property attracts a diverse group of people... from Broadway actors & directors, Academy award winning actors to parents in town anticipating the birth of their grandchild to tourists from Bruges and Dubai. It is a lot of fun meeting you all!

Paul purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Paul chose Ocean Park

The Mediterranean climate is absolutely perfect here in Santa Monica. Its not unusually to drive from 100 degree weather in the San Fernando Valley just 10 miles away and have the temperature be 78 degrees in Santa Monica!

As a boy in Detroit, I use to visit Santa Monica every year with my family. We would rent the same small house by the beach every year. It was behind the Bayside hotel. It has since been torn down but if you stay at my property and walk to the beach you will pass right by the Bayside Hotel just before you reach the sand. It wasn't planned that I would later buy a property so close to that site but it sealed the deal when I found out how close it was.

What makes this townhome unique

There really isn't anything quite like my property in Santa Monica. Its is a modern luxury triplex with townhouse style units. Don't let anyone tell you that you don't need air conditioning in Santa Monica or that there will be plenty of hot water for 4 or 5 long back-to-back showers in their rental. I spared no expense in the renovation, installing tankless water heaters, high efficiency heat and air, European appliances and high end finishes. The units have never been lived in full time since the renovation. "No pets" and "no smoking" has always been the rule as well.

The neighborhood has quiet tree-lined streets and is close enough to the action without all the traffic and congestion of being in the heart of the tourist areas. Everything is a refreshing stroll or bike ride away.

Beautiful, private, clean, fully equipped modern townhouse in a quiet neighborhood close to beach

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect set up for our family of three for a Thanksgiving together with friends. The unit is open and roomy with a spacious patio and barbecue area which we used frequently. Both bedrooms are upstairs and each has it's own full bathroom with plenty of privacy. Living/dining area are spacious and light--great for lounging and hanging out with friends/family. The unit is very clean, very quiet, private, and fully equipped with everything you can think of, including washer/dryer. Paul is a fabulous host and immediately available if you have any questions. The location was perfect for us--close to grocery stores and restaurants in Santa Monica and the walk to the beach was the highlight of each day. Access to the freeway was easy so our excursions to The Getty Museum, LACMA, Hollywood, and hiking in Pacific Palisades were all very do-able. Our stay was idyllic--we had great weather in November and, best of all, at the end of each day it was always a treat to come home to our cozy townhouse. It really felt like home. Would definitely stay there again.
