Great restaurants are a couple of blocks away. The beach bike path is just 3 blocks away.
Close to Beach: Just 3 blocks from the beach. Within 5 minutes, your feet are on the sand, or you are biking, rollerblading, jogging on the bike bath that goes for miles. The bike path passes by the famous Santa Monica Pier and continues on to the wild and crazy Venice Boardwalk and to Marina Del Rey.

Santa Monica Canyon: The Santa Monica Canyon is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in all of Southern California. It is unique for two main reasons, first, it is just a few blocks from the beautiful Santa Monica Beaches, nestled in a hidden canyon. Secondly, it is lush and green, thick with vegetation and surrounded by some of the most beautiful homes in Los Angeles.
The property is in an excellent location near to the beach and a lovely cycle ride to the pier and beyond. You are in the conservatory of the property the bed is okay but the arrangement for the third person is not great, so it would be best for a couple. The bathroom area is cramped with not really enough space to sit down on the toilet comfortably. The area is also in need of a proper clean, there is mould present and hair etc behind the door.
The hot tub is out in the deck and is maintained, someone came just before 7am to do this.
I was lucky enough to find the patio guest room while I was in Santa Monica this past July. Not only was the price very affordable, I found the guest room very comfortable and charming. Len Guida was always accommodating as well as helpful. He has included everything that a guest could need to be comfortable, including a bottle of wine! The room is on the back of his home, and has a private entrance surrounded by a lovely deck and small garden. There is a hot tub that I used with my son and his family one night. I felt that I had plenty of privacy. It is located in an area of Santa Monica that is centrally located where I could walk to the beach, park, and shopping area. I would definitely recommend it for singles or a couple who are looking for an affordable way to enjoy a beautiful city.
This rental is perfect if you want a no fuss no muss holiday. Better than a hotel! You have your own private patio that is resort like, where we enjoyed morning coffee every day, and dinner every night. This place is a gem. It has everything you need for the beach, including bicycles to get there! Also the washer dryer were an added bonus for a family who likes to pack light. Len was also very nice and helpful for questions and advise on the area. Lots of storage for your clothing and made us feel like we were not living out of our suitcases. I'll take a place like this ANY DAY over a stuffy boring hotel.
These guys are wonderful! Sweet, accommodating hosts in a great location. Getting four stars because the place is a bit dated and the bathroom difficult to maneuver in, small shower, sink over the toilet. Overall, a great time!
This was a perfect place for us to stay in Santa Monica. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, which is close to the beach. Len and his family were gracious, non-intrusive hosts, yet we could contact them at any time. My daughter, her two grown-up sized daughters, and I slept there comfortably. We were all so grateful for having stayed in this vacation home. Thank you, Len and Jan!
The property is located in an upmarket area.On arrival first impressions were not great and on entering what is basically a converted sun lounge at the rear of the main house my concerns were confirmed.[There is a further "cottage" fenced off at the rear of the garden which shares access to deck area and outdoor laundry facilities].All the facilities are there.It's just in need of a total makeover. Other reviewers spoke of the toilet position.They were spot on. Toilet and shower are crammed into the smallest space possible.I doubt if it is to building code. Sitting on the wc requires a lot of contortion due to sink/basin position.Shower was very grubby,not cleaned before arrival.Hope it is cleaned for the next renter but I don't hold out much hope. I wanted to raise these issues with the owner at the time but my wife feared he may throw us out.
On the plus side the house is located 3 mins from the beach. You do not need to drive to santa monica centre as a bus stop is across the street.$1.25 each way. No parking worries and you are able to explore,shop and have a drink in town without being pulled over for DUI. Rental charge is very cheap in relation to hotels in the area but you get what you pay for. If you are used to hosteling this place is OK. "DON'T EXPECT THE RITZ !!".
Ideal location - minutes from the famous Santa Monica Pier, Third Street Promenade and just a 4 minute walk to the beach. Personal transport service through the owner is available as schedule permits, please inquire. The Santa Monica Canyon combines lush green trees and gardens in a hidden canyon just steps from the bike path and waves of the ocean.
Whether you want the perfect weather, the perfect beaches, or activities of biking, jogging, roller-blading, surfing or sailing, this Santa Monica location has it all. And some of the best shopping around is found in Santa Monica including famous Montana Avenue and the newly renovated Santa Monica Place mall. All of this, is 5 minutes by car, and just 20-30 minutes by foot.
