This Art Deco Penthouse has it all: 3 blocks form the beach, the Santa Monica Promenade, and famous Montana Avenue! 2000 SF of roof deck garden complete with BBQ and Firepit seriously compete with the brand new interiors with all the amenities: full kitchen, dishwasher, tub, internet, movie screen..
This is a true gem in a landmarked streamline moderne building. Even with the interiors fully renovated, there is a true historic feel - (and the place has history: David Hockney lived in this very apartment!) Huge windows look right into the treetops and out onto the roof garden. Hammock, loungers, outdoor dining table - you'll probably want to spend all your time outside! But inside is just as nice: The kitchen comes with all the amenities: fridge + freezer, stove, microwave, dishwasher, and fully stocked with all pots, pans and utensils for gourmet cooking.
There is wireless internet, BlueRay DVD and a movie screen/projector setup for cozy evenings on the big couch. A bathroom with a generous tub-shower, an office adjoining the bedroom (queen size bed very comfortably fits two) and a full size closet will make you feel like you've just moved into the coolest place on earth :)
The location can't be beat, either: You are mere steps from the bustling Promenade and downtown Santa Monica with all its restaurants, bars, and shops, or a quieter but equally happening Montana Avenue with cafes and boutiques. Even closer is Palisades Park with the Santa Monica Bluff and the beach right beyond for morning runs or sunset strolls, or the Santa Monica Canyon with its shaded streets and modernist homes - and if you really want to get out, Malibu and the Santa Monica mountains are just a short drive up the Pacific Coast Highway.
While you rent this home, the whole space is yours to enjoy (responsibly). - Since this is my actual home, a few cupboards will be marked as private but everything that's out and about is yours to use. I count on you being caring and respectful just like you would be in your own home..
I will be around to check you in and out and show you all the details - I also have a lot of information about the area, activities, and things to see and do compiled for guests, so I can get you off to a good start on your stay! And if you have questions while you are here, I am only a few blocks and a phone call away.
There is Street parking with a preferential parking pass that you can use. But everything is pretty much walkable and all the major bus lines are just a few blocks away. I have one bicycle that you can borrow, and there is also a bike rental just down on the beach off of Montana Ave.

We have been renting homes when we travel for over a decade and Corinna's place is unquestionably one of our favorites. I considered leaving a bad review because we are in Santa Monica at least 2-3 times a year and we want her place all to ourselves lol ;-). But seriously our stay was great. Corinna is a wonderful host. Her place has EVERYTHING you could want or need from extra pillows to an amazing deck to a kitchen full of amenities just like at home. The location is ultra quiet and an easy peasy walk to the beach or the promenade. Can't recommend Corinna's place enough.
Corinna's place was absolutely perfect for our stay. The location could not have been better; it is just three blocks from the beach, walking distance from the Santa Monica Promenade, and right on Montana which is an adorable little shopping street with lots of cafes and restaurants. The roof is just as it is shown in the pictures--a fantastic place to spend a sunny day. We used the grill to cook dinner and ate on the picnic table a lot (there is a heater above it so it was quite comfortable to sit outside at night even in January). And the fire pit is a great place to warm your hands on a chilly evening! Corinna was an extremely gracious host as well. All in all, I would recommend this place to any of my friends, and I would love to return to visit this special retreat again someday!
What a wonderful hostess and what a wonderful place!
Corinna met me at her beautiful retreat and opened her home to me. She was kind, graceful and a real charm. She stopped by to check up on me and was sure that I was well taken care of.
Her retreat is just splendid. Simple, uncluttered, organized, CLEAN, just the place for a weekend get away. There is a lot of things to see and do within several blocks..
I would go back in a heart beat! You should beat a path to her door.
Thank you, Corinna!
Corinna is a gracious and attentive hostess, making sure I have everything I needed and leaving a detail list of how-to's so I was easily able to access Wifi, etc. She even checked in on me after an unusual wind storm to be sure I was all right. She made it easy to stay in her lovely home and I would be delighted to visit again. The rooftop location made me feel like I was in a private world looking over my favorite town. The landmark building and Corinna's tasteful and charming decor with the spacious and inviting deck make this the perfect California indoor/outdoor style. It was so convenient to walk to the park, the beach, the 3rd Street Promenade and Montana Avenue that it really is as centrally located as you can get. Thank you, Corinna, for a lovely stay.
Was in LA for AFM and think I can safely argue that I had one of the most unique, beautiful rentable spaces in Santa Monica. Corinna's huge private rooftop is just this side of spectacular - a big fire pit, a hammock that can fit two, a big table (got a lot of work done there) and a barbecue. The living space inside has an elegant art deco design with tons of natural light. The shower is awesome and the bed incredibly comfortable. Everything is easily walkable, from conference sessions at the hotels to 3rd Street Promenade to the beautiful beach. Corinna took a personal interest in ensuring all went smoothly from the start, but was also very respectful of my privacy. She's super nice - the best. I would not hesitate to stay there again!
