vacation rental description

Location, location, location! Extraordinarily charismatic, romantic, sunny and airy Mediterranean-style 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home in the heart of the westside beach area (MSanta Monica/Marina del Rey) sleeps 2-6 guests and is just a short walk to the beach. This is the ideal and utterly charming vacation getaway for a couple, family or business group. Located on beautiful Howard Street, we affectionately call it "Howard's End."

Our sunny casita welcomes you on a beautiful and quiet residential street just blocks from the Marina. Unrestricted parking. Open living room and dining area with skylights and hardwood floors. The spotless and airy kitchen is fully equipped with all amenities, perfect for preparing fresh organic produce from one of the many local farmer’s markets in the area. Enjoy breakfast on our front balconette, and lunch or dinner al fresco on our backyard terrace where 8 can comfortably gather around the table.

The two main bedrooms feature queen-size beds looking out into the backyard gardens, with the master bedroom’s French doors opening up onto a lovely Mediterranean patio that leads to our backyard terrace. The third bedroom, which also may be used as a den and has a woirking desk, features a new trundle bed with two twin mattresses, perfect for children or adults. There are two full bathrooms adjacent to the two main bedrooms.  The living room features a new queen-size sleeper sofa, which sleeps two.

Howard's End also includes complementary phone, high-speed broadband internet and Wi-Fi, and widescreen HD premium cable TV.

We’re just a short stroll to the surf and sands of Venice beach where you can bike, swim, skateboard, explore, shop and dine casually or elegantly, and the famous Venice Pier and the Venice Canals are just a 7-minute walk down the street. Just three blocks away is the exceptional Abbott Kinney Blvd. known for its charming boutiques, antique stores, fine restaurants and shopping. There are literally dozens of fine restaurants, cafes and coffee shops in our very walkable – a gastronome’s delight!

Perfect Location Perfect Host.......We Loved It.....

Review submitted: May 8, 2014   Date of arrival: April 4, 2014

Thanks again Ross - our Family of 5 from Australia had a great stay in 'The End'. We were there for almost 2 weeks and an ideal location for us and our 3 teenage children. We have been to LA over a dozen times now and found this spot close to all we wanted to do and see. Breakfast on Abbott Kinney and late night skateboard riding for the boys. Sensational. We jumped on bikes and we were on Venice beach in 4 min. We even spent a day doing the Yard Sales run in the area. It's a Venice/ Marina Del Ray highlight. Love the Locals and the neighbours. Such a great area to spend time in - very quiet and excellent restaurants nearby. We are not Costco members (non residents) so no go for us - but we always shop at Wholefoods up the road and it has everything we need for our stay. Ross our host was always available if we needed anything and he looked after us extremely well. See you next year....unless we buy a house in Howard St...One day.

Perfect Vacation Home

Review submitted: April 4, 2014   Date of arrival: March 21, 2014

We had a fabulous weeks stay at Ross's beautiful home (2-adults and 15 & 8 year old). Ross met us at the house upon arrival and in chatting with him we quickly felt like we'd be family friends forever ... Everything about the house was perfect, the kitchen is big and very well equipped, the bedrooms are spacious with comfy beds and care is taken in having all required bathroom and kitchen amenities supplied so no worry about having to rush off to purchase anything. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance of the house, C&O Cucina became a family favourite and Johnnie's New York Pizzeria had the best pizza we've ever had ! There is also a Costco and an Albertsons within a 5-minute drive from the house for all grocery shopping needs. We went to every touristy spot in the surrounding area as well we drove into L.A. twice and found that the access to all major streets and thoroughfares easily accessible from the house. Front street parking was never an issue and the neighbours were super friendly. Overall a fantastic stay - we will definitely be back again !

Just as Pictured

Review submitted: February 25, 2014   Date of arrival: February 19, 2014

We spent 3 nights at this lovely little Mediterranean home in February. We were joined by our son, his wife, and our two young grandchildren (ages 6 & 3). The home was perfect for all of us. Two of the bedrooms serve as a suite and were perfect for the family of 4 - queen size bed for the parents and trundle beds for the kids. We took the other bedroom. The beds are very comfortable and have high quality linens. There are very nice towels for the 2 bathrooms and plenty of beach towels. The home is just as pictured. It is tastefully decorated and has the feel of a well loved home than a rental. The kitchen is very well outfitted with everything you could possibly want. It is located on a quiet residential street with on street parking. We had 2 cars and parking was never a problem. The beach at the end of Washington Blvd. is over a mile away, so we drove there. This beach is at the quiet end of Venice Beach. The grandkids also enjoyed the Santa Monica Pier and all the rides. There are a few close by
restaurants that you can walk to. Ross, the owner, was great to deal with. He came by on our first evening to make sure everything was right. For a nice, well priced, close to the beach rental, this home is ideal.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway
