Property Details

Updated: Apr 24, 2015
Located Just South Of Montana Avenue. Swim In The Pool Or Walk To The Beach.

Step back into time and experience the neighborhood as it once was. The streets lined with beach cottages within walking and biking distance to the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean and wide Santa Monica beaches. The light and airy nature of each bungalow welcomes you in while you are away from home.

Each bungalow has been newly restored and improved to make your stay as comfortable as any hotel can offer. Add the updated kitchen, privacy, pool and location and these little houses are hard to rival. Each has its own character and each has its own charm.

Poolside Bungalow 1 is located on the back of the property. This tucked away little bungalow was built in 1927. It was part of a grouping of bungalows of which only a few remain. The many windows are encased in vintage trim, swing-out wood casement windows and white washed painted floors. The bedroom is tastefully romantic and features a walk-in closet and direct access to the bathroom with a vintage tub and newly plastered walls. The kitchen is a cooks delight with a Wedgewood stove, dishwasher, farmhouse sink, microwave and coffee maker. The light filled living room is enchanting, surrounded by windows which fill this room with light and the ocean breeze. This room looks out onto the pool and a timber bamboo courtyard. The living space holds two couches and dining room table that comfortably sits six. The two couches can double as beds making this bungalow ideal for a family of four. This property comes with parking for one car.

These two pool bungalows can be rented individually or together. Each opens out onto the private courtyard and shared swimming pool. Each one is lovelier than the next and if you aren't renting both we invite you back to stay in the other one during your next visit.

Inquire into whether or not we are available during your stay via an email or feel free to call us directly.

We love what we do and we love Santa Monica!

Bungalow 2: Our 2 bedroom front bungalow is also listed on VRBO. Feel free to take a look!

Great place

  • 5 of 5
Perfectly clean and comfortable. Almost all staples were supplied. My only negative is that I wish the full sized bed was a queen, Otherwise, all was great.

Exactly as described

  • 5 of 5
My husband, son and I stayed for a week over the Easter Holiday. This was our first trip to Santa Monica and we were looking for something other than a hotel room for the week. The bungalow was the perfect fit! It is exactly as described and Lisa was a treat to work with. She goes above and beyond to make her guest feel comfortable.
I would stay here again if we are in the area.

Comfortable Stay

  • 4 of 5
Pleasant and comfortable one bedroom apartment for a relaxing stay. Enjoyed space of lounge and also fully functioning kitchen was useful after recent stays in hotels. Made to feel welcome by owners. Location worked well with a car to get around the area although also walkable to Santa Monica beach and town. Would stay again if in area.

Cute, comfortable and clean!

  • 5 of 5
My two kids and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the one bedroom bungalow just one block from Montana Avenue. I have stayed in Santa Monica on many occasions and this fit our needs just perfectly. The location is great. I didn't have to drive to find restaurants and grocery store conveniences. The house itself was clean and exactly enough space. The couch was also very comfortable to sleep on. I will definitely consider renting this bungalow again on our next stay...if it isn't booked up already!!

Santa Monica Bungalow with pool

  • 5 of 5
Look no further! This 1 bed 1 bath is in a perfect location. Walking distance to beach, shops, downtown Santa Monica, etc. It is very bright, spacious and had literally anything and everything you need as if you were living at home. All kitchen appliances, silverware, dinnerware, pots, pans, bowls, coffee pot, blender, etc. you name it, it has it! There was even a washer and dryer in the house. The pictures posted of this property are not deceiving, it is EXACTLY how the place looks. Lisa was also great to work with. Very quick on responding and always made herself available for any questions or concerns.

I want to move to Santa Monica now

  • 5 of 5
If you're going to rent a place for a trip to Santa Monica look no further than this bungalow. The location is perfect in regards to the beach as well as all the action on Montana avenue, and the house has everything you need. Everything is updated and the bed is 100x more comfortable than my bed at home. I wanted to steal it but its tough to fit a bed into the carry on compartment on the plane. I also assume I would have lost my security deposit then. You know a place is good when it has a robe for you. Who doesn't love a white robe to lounge in? This place had me at robe.

If you like being active outside, nearby beaches, general bodily warmth (screw the midwest), an abundance of local dogs to pet, killer restaurants, close proximity to the Santa Monica stairs (or as I like to call them "Sweaty Steps of Death") and two of the friendliest hosts VRBO has to offer in Lisa and Colette...then book this place right now.

From the Owner

This property is unique to all of Santa Monica. These two beach bungalows are one of the few private 1920 properties with a private pool for swimming and lounging around on a lazy summer day with a book. As an architect, the owner saw the potential to restore these bungalows in an open, clean, light filled, simple, colorful and modern genre.

From the Owner

There aren't any hotels on Montana Avenue, but there is the best place to stay in town just half a block away. These 2 pool bungalows are within walking distance to Montana Avenue, the 3rd Street Promenade & the ocean! It doesn't get any better than that.
