vacation rental description

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!

traveler reviews for this santa monica house rental

Little Gem! Best vacation apartment rental in Los Angeles!

Review submitted: March 14, 2014   Date of arrival: December 13, 2013

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!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Cozy and charming upstairs cottage

Review submitted: February 22, 2014   Date of arrival: February 17, 2014

We've stayed in lots of VRBOs before but this is one of our favorites--very cozy, homey and spotlessly clean. Loved having a piano and made good use of it. Enjoyed all of the owner's travel memorabilia and artwork--much nicer than staring at blank walls! Also loved the view of the garden from the balcony--made me wish I lived there year-round. Used the bikes and the washing machine--all worked beautifully. Owner was out of town, but the property manager was super nice and responsive.

Wonderful stay!

Review submitted: January 9, 2014   Date of arrival: January 3, 2014

This apartment was perfect for a stay with two small children. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The deck was lovely with orange and lemon trees and bright flowers. The apartment is exactly as described and even better--comfortable and spotlessly clean. The location was perfect to visit both Venice Beach and Santa Monica, and the neighborhood is completely safe. When we arrived, a bottle of wine and an extensive binder about the area and restaurant recommendations were waiting for us. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and I highly recommend the property.
