The space

My house is a fully furnished single family home in the Ocean Park area of Santa Monica, located literally at the beach (a few houses away from the sand) between Downtown Santa Monica and Venice Beach. It is on a small one block street that is quiet, beautiful, and picture perfect. Arguably the best street in the best location in all of Los Angeles. Very special!

I travel a lot and sometimes make my home available on the dates when I am out of town. Because of Santa Monica's rules against renting the entire house on airbnb, I am technically only renting out one of the bedrooms (which is why it is listed as a 1br/1ba) but if you see availability on the calendar, it means that those are the times when I am probably out of town. If you rent my home, you will have the entire house to yourself as I will not be staying in my bedroom (which will be locked and not part of the rental)! So besides my locked-off bedroom, the entire rest of the house will be yours, not to be shared with anyone!

This beach bungalow is a standalone home with an ocean-view front yard and a bright sunny and very private back yard. It has an amazing open floor plan. The guest bedroom is at the back of the house and is furnished with a brand new super comfortable luxury queen mattress from Casper and amazing brand new bedding from Parachute Home. It opens up directly onto the backyard, which has great outdoor furniture and a brand new BBQ for beautiful warm LA nights at the beach. The living room is incredibly spacious - perfect for relaxing - with comfortable designer furniture. Perhaps the best spot is the sunroom at the front of the house with two brand new super comfortable chairs, as well as a rocking chair... each with perfect ocean views! This cottage also offers a HUGE bathroom with a very spacious shower, as well as lounge area in the bathroom--- nicer and more unique than the nicest hotel suite! I have high speed wireless internet and a permit pass for parking for one car in front of the house.

This is truly the best location in LA. Perfectly located in the Ocean Park neighborhood, and less than a minute walk from the beach! A block off of Main Street Santa Monica and also a few blocks walking distance from Rose Avenue in Venice. 3rd Street Promenade and Abbot Kinney are both a 10 minute walk away. Less than a block from the beach and walking distance to all that Venice and Santa Monica have to offer. The best restaurants, bars, coffee shops, yoga studios, gyms, parks, etc are all within a walk or bike ride from the house yet the street is quiet and extremely safe.

There is plenty of permitted street parking available and a parking pass that will be provided.

Please message me if you have any additional questions or inquiries.

Thanks, Brian

Guest access

You'll be able to access all the spaces except my bedroom, which will be locked!

Interaction with guests

Although it's likely that I'll be out of town / out of your way while you are staying at my beach house, I am always available via phone or email if you have any questions or need any recommendations.

The neighbourhood

The Cottage is in an incredible location, with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and one of the finest white sand beaches on the west coast. Walking distance to the best restaurants and shopping in Santa Monica and Venice. From your doorstep, you can walk, swim, bike, grab a surf lesson, cycle or roller-blade on the famous Santa Monica bike path. Walk to the Santa Monica Pier and enjoy a carousel or Ferris Wheel ride, attend a Thursday night twilight concert or simply spend time watching sailboats and sunsets from the lovely sun-room or front garden of The Cottage.

House Rules

My street is EXTREMELY quiet and includes several families with kids. Guests must be extremely respectful... no pets, no loud music, no parties, no visitors after dark, etc. If you are looking for a party house this is not the right one. Ideal for a single person or a couple who would like to enjoy spending some time in paradise.
