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!

Fabulous Stay at Greatest VRBO residence

Review submitted: August 19, 2014   Date of arrival: August 9, 2014

We have stayed at many VRBO homes over the years. This one was by far the best. The location is perfect and we felt right at home. As everyone says, Ross the owner, is a delight. But most importantly, he takes the care of his home very seriously. The place was spotless. It is the cleanest, most well stocked home we have ever stayed in. At the end of our 8 night stay, our teenage son asked if we could move in permanently! We can't wait to come back.

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

Our Great American Road Trip

Review submitted: August 19, 2014   Date of arrival: July 17, 2014

We had decided to have a last massive family trip ( 5 of us ) as our daughters are now reaching the age where parents are excess baggage!!!!. So we decided on a triangular trip starting and finishing in Las Vegas. After the first 5 days of constant travelling and long road journeys we reached Howard street and arrived outside what can only be described as a Hansel and gretel type house ( for a 6 night stay ). It really is a postcard picture and very pretty ( my girls view ). When you first see the house surrounded by the other imposing properties around it you think " No way it is too small for us" Do Not be put off by the initial impression of size. Once inside it works, it is perfect. The open plan kitchen, 2 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms were perfect for us and it really was a home from home. Ross is superb and very knowledgeable of the surrounding area. You can walk to Venice Beach in 20 mins and there is a superb Italian restaurant just round the corner on Washington Pl. You have great access to the Freeway which will take you Wilshere Blvd and Beverly Hills etc.. As a family we all agreed it was a fantastic place and were sad to leave the relaxed way of spending your holiday rather than looking at your suitcase in the corner of a hotel room everyday. Would stay again 100%.

A truly lovely place and a great location!!!!

Review submitted: August 7, 2014   Date of arrival: July 28, 2014

The actual property exceeds the photos! Clean, well maintained and nicely decorated. The landscaping was beautiful. We walked everywhere, great dining, a perfect beach at the end of Washington Street, the Venus Canals. The icing on the cake was Ross! He was so helpful and genuinely cared that we had a great stay. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative.

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