Studio in Pacific Palisades with beautiful view of the beach and ocean.
One bathroom with walk-in shower, kitchen with mini-fridge, toaster oven, hot plate, microwave, Brita water system, and electric teapot.
There is plenty of bench seating, and a desk that you can work at.
There is 1 queen memory foam bed, 1 futon that folds to a full or queen size "bed" and is comfy, and there is plenty of bench seating in the back area and kitchen area, that a person, or people can sleep on. GREAT VIEW!!!!

The space

This is a beautiful studio that sits atop a cliff in Pacific Palisades. It is the downstairs unit of a charming old beach house built in 1950. You have your own private balcony and entrance.
The unit above has tenants therefore you may hear footsteps. If it bothers you while you are sleeping, then there are ear plugs in the bathroom medicine cabinet. This family typically goes to bed early.

There is AC and heating in the studio, but unfortunately, it is controlled by the house above. It usually stays around 70 degrees. If that is too hot or cold, we also have a space heater, and large fan.

We live on the side of a mountain overlooking the ocean surrounded by nature. It is beautiful and a little wild, so be prepared to see beautiful wildlife and the occasional critter wanting to hang out with you.

Please note that if you have more than 4 people that sleep here, the 5th person needs to sleep on bench seating. It is relatively comfortable, but it isn't a "bed" situation. :)

Guest access

The whole studio and lower balcony. It is a large size for being a studio; plus you have the large balcony, which is almost as big as the studio. Great for families to sit out and watch the sunset. The beach is also right down the hill. You can cross the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway), and you will have your feet in the sand. Its a quick walk or drive. The patio now has patio ambient lighting, all you have to do is plug in the lights while you sit outside on the seating.

Interaction with guests

There will be no in-person interaction unless there is an issue. The owner lives above. You can message us through the app ideally if you need anything, or call, or even walk upstairs and knock on the door if we are home.

Other things to note

Please note that there is no washer and dryer on this property. However, there are laundromats in the area for the guests with extended stays.

No loud parties; this is a studio that has people living above you in the house.
At times you will hear footsteps; it's inevitable.
Please do your dishes before you check out, and treat our home with respect.
If you have a pet you would like to bring it will be considered an additional house guest and therefore the additional cleaning fee of $15 per animal per night will apply. Make sure you include your pet in the number of guests and notify us prior that we will be hosting a pet. This fee is to cover the additional cleaning costs associated with pets like fur/hair in carpets, sofas, etc. If your pet does any damage or leaves a significant mess, there will be additional fees to cover the cost of repair. A dog that barks frequently will not be permitted and you will have to remove the dog from the premises since this disrupts neighbors.
Please no smoking on the property. It wafts into the upper unit. Thanks!

I had a really lovely stay. The studio is clean and well kept. Perfect size for 1 person or a couple. The raised bed with view on the sea is pretty awesome and the deck outside is spacious, sunny, and with a stunning view. If you leave the windows open you can hear the waves which is quite a treat. Kitchen equipment is limited so don't plan on making big meals. The only downside of the studio is noise coming from the house on top when people walk around. Also it gets very bright pretty early in there despite there being blinds on the windows, perhaps thicker curtains could improve things. I generally travel with both earplugs and an eye mask so neither were a problem. Will definitely stay again when around these areas!

We had a really good stay at Ariel and Seans studio. The studio is well located near the beach. The view from the nice and huge balcony is simply amazing! The studio has a small kitchen and a bright bathroom with any body care products you could possibly need! We would love to come back soon!

Stayed at Ariel and Sean's studio along PCH in Malibu and it was really nice. The oceans waves were very relaxing and the views were awesome. Had the chance to meet them as well since they were with their friends right above us. Very nice people and grateful to stay at their studio which is very close to Santa Monica pier. I was surprised at the size of the studio as I was expecting something smaller. Good place to stay!

Right off PCH with perfect view of Pacific Ocean. Short walk to the beach. Great value to experience waking up to ocean view and sound.
