Guests will have our entire upscale house to themselves with private entrance through street-front and back alley. Guests have full access to front and back deck. Comes fully-equipped including dishwasher. Washer and dryer are in bathroom. Sleeps one couple and up to 3 kids. The parents will sleep upstairs in the open loft but can also bring down the queen mattress into one of the two bedrooms. We will also provide bikes and surfboards for an additional charge and deposit. Weekly housekeeping is included in monthly rentals.

Interaction with guests

We will personally welcome you at check-in and will be available throughout your stay by phone. Our housekeeper, Margarita, will be very helpful each week when she comes to maintain your house.

Other things to note

We would like to rent the house out from 1 July to 15 August. The City of Santa Monica requires a 30-day minimum stay in order to avoid the 14% city-imposed transient tax. We are also giving 10% off the rate for 30+ night stays. This is our second time listing the house. We received only 5 star ratings last summer! Enjoy SoCal living at its best by staying at our place.

Chris and Diana were exceptional hosts. They were very accommodating to my family and I, and their place was great for the purpose of our visit.

Chris and Diana are fantastic hosts. They did everything they could to ensure a great experience for us. The house was really clean and I so appreciate that. We stayed there with our 2 kids, (16 and 4). Our 4 year old had a great time with the toys and made fast friends with the other kids in the neighborhood. Chris even pulled out a toy from his storage that our son asked about from the photos of the house on line! He really went above and beyond, he even texted us to remind of to move our car for street cleaning!We would stay there again anytime.

Imagine finding your dream home while on vacation. Now imagine finding your dream home while on vacation and learning that your best friend owns it. Bonus! Such was our experience with Chris and Diana. Their cozy home was the perfect retreat for our family's (four of us) first vaca to SoCal. The pictures don't do it justice. It's so airy and light, and fresh and clean, and... relaxing. But, we weren't there simply to enjoy the house. We had adventuring to do. Chris and Diana's house is surrounded by equally-adorable homes, and is located within walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants—and the beach!. It's a nice neighborhood filled with great, friendly people. One of the better parts of our stay was Chris and Diana's attention to detail. They not only got the basics right, they threw in thoughtful touches such as flowers, body wash, prosecco and other amenities that made this more than a house but a true home to enjoy our week in. Chris greeted us when we arrived, showed us all the ins and outs, and is one of the warmest fellows we've ever met. He was also kind enough to check in with us periodically to see if we needed anything. Things to know: The neighborhood is family friendly and safe. Parking can be a trick, but it isn't rocket science. Plan ahead and you'll be just fine. Sharing one bathroom amongst a family of four can be a feat, but not impossible. Get up early, plan your day, and start taking turns. If you like living like the "locals," this is the place for you. Settle into the neighborhood, introduce yourself to neighbors and shop owners, explore the streets, the park and pet a dog or three. You'll enjoy your stay more, and will appreciate coming "home" at the end of a long day of fun and sun. Final word: if you're overwhelmed by the number of homes available in or near Santa Monica (we had 30 tabs open when planning our trip!), look no further. Chris and Diana have THE ONE for you.
