About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4-6

It’s not every day you find a rental in a beach town that’s equally perfect for adults and families with children, but this rental easily accommodates both surprisingly well!

Bring the whole family – or your closest friends – along on your vacation. With a queen bed in the master bedroom, 2 twin beds in the second bedroom, and a queen sofa sleeper in the living room, this rental accommodates up to 6 people.

This charming 2+1 bungalow unit fosters a sense of spaciousness with high ceilings accented by classic crown molding, along with the beauty of natural hardwood flooring.

Relax in front of a fire on chilly evenings; in warmer weather sip your morning coffee (or evening wine) on the patio outside.

Do you enjoy cooking? The recently renovated kitchen is a joy to use with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops.

Convenience and fun is yours when you’re just 9 blocks away from the beach and Third Street Promenade and a short 12 blocks from the Santa Monica Pier!

Enjoy your stay as a family without worrying about “those stares” from others. The location of this unit means you can enjoy your children’s fun and laughter no matter what.

Complimentary street parking with permit is included with rental; in-driveway parking is $10 per night or $50 per week.

This charming 2+1 unit with old world charm has high ceilings, crown molding, gorgeous hardwood floors, fireplace, a skylight in master bedroom, and a fenced garden front yard. A queen bed with memory foam pillows in master, 2 twin beds in 2nd bedroom, and a queen sofa sleeper in living room will sleep up to 6 people.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a very good time in Santa Monica and Los Angeles. The traffic was crazy but we survived. Enjoyed the close location to the beach, the walk was a relatively easy 20 minute walk. We liked the close proximity to gas stations and groceries. That is one thing I would put in your binder is the location of the grocery stores with a map of Santa Monica. Our bedroom was very nice and the kids said their beds were very comfortable. Parking was very easy. We always seemed to get a spot right across the street on 9th. Everything in the house worked fine. The suite had everything we needed.

Fantastic weekend with friends in Santa Monica!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Kathryn's house made for a great weekend in Santa Monica/LA. She was timely and detailed with all information that she provided us, and she always did what she said she'd do. The house was in great shape when we arrived, and we had no issues. Location is a quick Uber ride to the Santa Monica Pier (we even walked once.). I recommend staying at this house for a weekend trip in Southern California.

Definetely recommend

  • 5 of 5

The staying experience has overal exceeded our expectation, we completely love this spotless, nicely decorated and well located vacation home. We had everything we needed during the stay and Kathryn was super nice and responsive all the time. It's located in a very quiet and safe neighbourhood, very close to Santa Monica, shops and restuarants. Would come back in the future:)

Convenient location to Santa Monica Pier

  • 5 of 5

Spent the weekend at La Casa to catch up with old friends and children. The location is extremely convenient to Santa Monica Pier and beach (only 20 mins walk). The house contains all the basic essentials that you might need. Wasn't sure of the washing machine location so I called the property manager who answered right away. Lisa was super helpful. For those looking for specific details - the main bedroom does have a skylight which may not suit people sensitive to light when sleeping and of course no sofabed is ever comfortable! Plenty of towels and pillows. Lastly, while none of the 2 bedrooms have AC - the owner has provided fans. Totally satisfactory stay which met all our needs for the weekend stay.

Clean unit, good location, had the necessities

  • 3 of 5

The location is pretty good, as it is definitely within walking distance to the beach and the 3rd St Promenade. The unit was clean and had the bare necessities. The beds were comfortable. General accommodations were relatively spartan and make sure to bring all of your toiletries, as there are none provided as complimentary except toilet paper. Floors are creaky and this unit is in what appears to be a triplex with walls that are very thin, meaning you can hear the neighbors pretty clearly if they are on the other side of the kitchen or queen bedroom walls. Adjacent streets are pretty noisy during the day, but quiet down pretty well at night. Street parking is not an issue.

Owner's Response: Thank you Thomas, I'm glad to hear unit was clean and had essentials and bed was comfortable. Just a clarification for future guests - we actually do provide bar soap, liquid soap and shampoo at minimum and these were likely either in bathroom or hall closet during your stay.

Clean and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and our 3 children (ages 13, 11, and 4) had a wonderful stay in Santa Monica. There was adequate room in the house for all of us and our luggage, definitely better than a hotel room and less expensive. The house was clean, comfortable and in a perfect location. In a quiet neighborhood but easy to get to Santa Monica Beach, restaurants or to the highway. We would definitely stay there again if we travel back to California.
