Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 1, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Our charming "Beethoven's Hideaway" 2-bedroom apartment is ideal as a vacation hideaway or a

relaxing retreat for the busy

professional. This fully furnished, richly decorated and completely

renovated 900 sq. ft.

two-bedroom apartment is situated only 1-1/2 miles from the ocean in

lovely Mar Vista on a treed

residential street, just minutes from top-flight restaurants, cinemas,

Hollywood studios and the

famous Venice and Santa Monica beaches.

Bright, clean and inviting, the apartment is located on the sunny top

floor of a California Craftsman

duplex originally built in 1910 and renovated with a respect for

historical detail. It features new

hardwood floors, Persian carpets, new furniture and fixtures.

All rooms are newly painted, and there is central heating. As an optional amenity, centrail air conditioning is available for a $10/night additional charge. The apartment comes

with high speed WIFI as well as a landline phone with local calling

included. Off-street parking is

available.

The large and airy master bedroom features casement windows (morning

light) and a walk-in closet,

reading nook and cedar linen chest. The equally large and sunny second

bedroom includes a writing

desk facing the casement windows (afternoon light) with a view of the

neighborhood, and a beautiful

studio upright piano in excellent condition (ideal for musicians).

Our cozy den features a new reclining armchair and sofa that can pull

out to an additional guest bed,

along with a widescreen hi-def television complete with DirecTV

premium channels, DVD player, and a

5-CD stereo.

French doors in the den open to a spacious outside patio deck with a

distant view of the mountains

and ocean. The deck overlooks a charming backyard (lit by lanterns at

night) that is home to our

lemon and orange trees -- you can pick lemons right off the tree from

the deck! -- and framed by

bougainvillea, a trickling fountain and an herb garden.

Our sunny kitchen offers lots of tiled countertop space, an

over-the-range microwave and stove, a

large refrigerator and a versatile oak breakfast trolley/wine bar next

to an adjacent dining area.

There's also a full bathroom with bathtub and shower and new fixtures.

Laundry facilities are in a separate backyard cabina and are shared

with the downstairs tenants.

Entrance to the apartment is via a private stairway off the backyard.

This is a rare gem and is available year-round. Call James at phone

number listed here and start

enjoying the benefits and delights of Southern California vacation life!

Such a lovely apartment, top floor of a house with a terrace surrounded by greenery. Parking is in the driveway. It's very easy to find thanks to mapquest, not too far from Santa Monica, comfortable, clean, cute, quiet, easy

access, the nearest beach is 5 minutes by car, it is cleaner and quieter than Venice itself where you can park

free in the street with a little luck, rent bikes, rollerblades. James is friendly and discreet. A golden address! -- Catherine Bellemere, Paris, France

Warm welcoming LA oasis!

We stayed at the Hideway for a week in August, and without a doubt will definitely return. James was an outstanding host, extremely generous and responsive to our needs. The space was clean, cozy and in a great neighbourhood, very close to Venice Beach.

Our kids loved the backyard, which was stunning and had an incredibly fragrant lemon tree. It was the perfect blend of urban and an oasis for the busy-ness of LA!

The property is as clean and beautiful as the photos display. The hospitality of the owner is felt in the property and his immediate response to any question or need. The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen very complete. If you want a place to relax, recuperate, rejuvenate or celebrate, this is it! Everything you need is there. We took the bus a few houses away and arrived in Venice Beach within 10 minutes. We walked to several restaurants and had take-out, as well. We never had to drive. We spent every minute possible on the deck with complete privacy.

The Hideaway is a true gem!

  • 5 of 5
The property is charming, spotless, comfortable, quiet. Beautifully decorated, and very homey. My husband and I were visiting family in Santa Monica; this location was very convenient, easy to drive wherever we wanted to be. James was attentive and promptly answered our questions; we are sorry we did not have a chance to meet personally. We look forward to staying here again when we return and would highly recommend this property.

Our favourite place to stay in LA!

  • 5 of 5
We've now stayed at the Hideaway three times over the past couple of years. It's a real 'home from home' and a truly peaceful retreat in a wonderful part of LA. The apartment is beautiful and spotlessly clean. It is wonderfully decorated and has a gorgeous balcony overlooking a pretty and peaceful garden with lemon and orange trees plus gentle fountains trickling away in the background. Sitting on that balcony always gives you real feeling of peace! James is a faultless host and sees to any need you may have, should you need to contact him. The Hideaway is only a few minutes drive from Venice beach, about 10 minutes drive from Santa Monica and well-situated to get into more central parts of the city. It's within walking distance to a good selection of shops and cafes.
Cannot recommend highly enough to anyone. If you are thinking of staying here, have no worries - you'll love it. I'm sure we'll be back many times!

Little Gem! Best vacation apartment rental in Los Angeles!

  • 5 of 5
We had the best experience at this darling apartment! It is super clean and homey! Very close to Venice Beach and Santa Monica. There was a bottle of wine waiting for us the evening we arrived and we enjoyed it on the charming balcony off of the living room. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything you need to feel at home and settle in easily. It exudes charm and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area. The landlord couldn't have been more accommodating and made us feel so welcome. He was very patient and kind to my elderly mother and showed her where everything was and even laughed at her jokes ;)! My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! I have been remiss in not getting this review posted earlier because it was a great experience and I can't wait to go back for another visit!
