Santa Monica Canyon: The Santa Monica Canyon is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in all of Southern California.

Secondly, it is lush and green, thick with vegetation and surrounded by some of the most beautiful homes in Los Angeles.

It was a pleasure staying at the studio guesthouse for my daughters' spring break. We were able to spend time at the beach, pier, Universal Studios and Disneyland. Len was great and had different options for my daughters to choose from when it came to sleeping arrangements. We were within walking distance from the beach and a bike ride away from the Santa Monica pier, which the girls and I took advantage of the bikes that were provided. We also did the famous Santa Monica steps which were a couple of minutes away from the rental property. Len was a great host and his attention to details in providing us with comfort items, such as hot chocolate, tea, coffee, water, wine (for me) and snack items were a welcome addition to our stay. The bathroom was wonderfully done and spacious. I want to thank Len and his family for a relaxing and wonderful stay at their rental property and will recommend this property to others.
Hi Kerri, thank you for your kind words. It was so nice to meet you and your daughters and we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We are also very pleased about our recent bathroom remodel....it is indeed beautiful and spacious. When your travels take you out west again, we look forward to having you stay at our place. With gratitude, Len and Jan.
Great Vacation With My Daughter!
I met my daughter for a great vacation in California in late April 2018 and stayed with Len and Jan in their patio guestroom. It was perfect! The location is excellent with the beach and restaurants within a couple minutes walk. They also have bikes and locks you can use for free and that was one of the highlights of our stay there. Biking along the beach on their flat, paved pathways. We road all the way beyond Venice Beach (the best people watching place in North America :) ) and it was such a beautiful way to spend a few hours in the Cali sunshine.
The room was very clean, has a very comfortable bed and the washroom was first rate. It was also nice to have a bureau to hang clothes in and all the other amenities you might need ... beach chairs, umbrellas (but it was sunny every day), satellite TV, fridge, microwave, coffee maker.
I highly recommend you dine at Italian restaurant Cafe Delfini. The owner is friends with Len and Jan and honestly it was one of the best restaurant meals I have ever had. I had the seafood linguine and my daughter had shrimp fusilli in a rose sauce. Both out of this world.
Also wanted to mention that there are stairs right beside their house that take you up onto the cliffs overlooking the beach and ocean and the view is spectacular! It is also how you get to the 3rd street shopping district where there are lots of restaurants, pubs, sports bars and shopping.
I highly recommend this place and, oh yes, the deck out back was another little haven to relax with our morning coffee or enjoy a cold drink after a day of sightseeing. Len and Jan were great at answering questions and providing advice on places to go and how to get there. We also loved their playful dog Rosie! She was great!
Nice area!! Close to the Beach!!
Len and Jan are great!! They think of everything to make sure your comfortable, with complimentary snacks and wonderful Peet's coffee and creamer!! The private patio and jacuzzi, to the complimentary use of bikes!! Will definitely visit again!!
Great location and host!
The patio guesthouse is a great place to stay! Len is an excellent host, was able to provide early check-in and a parking spot! The house is very close to the Santa Monica steps, and a couple of miles from the SM pier/3rd st. Easy check-in and check-out, great new bathroom with plenty of towels and bottled water and snacks and wine! I would stay here again!
Stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed it. Location was great for getting around and the place was comfortable. Parking was the only issue. The owner has two VRBO's at his place and only one parking space.
Clean & comfortable. Great location. Wonderfully helpful owners.
Our stay could not have been better. The patio guesthouse was within walking distance to the beach and the 3rd street promenade. Other attractions such as the Getty Center and downtown LA are easily accessed.
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.
