About this listing
Come enjoy our awesome guest retreat on Santa Monica beach and reclaim your health while taking in the ocean views! We're steps to the beach and weekly farmer's market and can't wait to personally design your perfect health experience.
This is our sweet little kitchen, stocked with everything you need to cook awesome meals. We love our Vitamix blender and two juicers the most!
We LOVE our apartment and know you will too! It's a cosy two bedroom, two bathroom unit in the perfect Santa Monica location. The building is full service and has parking, dry cleaning, a beautiful pool and hot tub, a small cafe, and a salon. You will stay in our simple guest bedroom in a comfortable twin bed with organic bedding and your own private bathroom. Your room has a balcony with ocean views and a small herb garden. :)
The best part of our place is having the beach as the front yard! We walk out the door and jump right on the bike path that spans all of Santa Monica and Venice Beach. If you head the other way, you will run into Santa Monica Main Street, full of cute restaurants and coffee shops, a local grocery store and a weekly farmer's market! We will structure a lot of your time staying active with biking, walking/running, yoga, and swimming. But afternoons will be free for you to explore!
Our apartment is set up for cooking and while you are here, you will get to be as involved in food prep as you want to be while we juice, blend, chop and spin our way to healthy and delicious meals. All the food will be raw and vegan. Throughout the week you will lose weight effortlessly and feel amazing.
Guests will have access to all the amenities of the building and unit as listed above. The shared laundry room always has plenty of available coin operated washers and dryers and is kept incredibly clean.
We have a flat screen tv, wireless internet, and various television providers (HBOGo, HuluPlus, Netflix), and a DVD and Record collection available.
In general, if there is something specific you need, feel free to run it past us and we will see if there is a way we can come up with it for you during your stay.
We encourage guests to take advantage of the infrared sauna as much as the desire.
1 Bike and 1 parking space are available. We also provide yoga mats and foam rollers.
Interaction with Guests
This is an interactive retreat space. You will be our guest while you're here and meals will be eaten communally around our table. The retreat will be scheduled after an initial consultation. We only accept one party at a time, with a maximum of two people.
Our neighborhood is just the best! We are in the Ocean Park neighborhood, south of the Santa Monica Pier and near the beginning of Venice Beach. Our neighborhood is quiet and walkable, with a lot of great restaurants and shops. At night, there are several good bars nearby and Venice Beach is a 10 minute walk. This place is a health nut's paradise, with plenty of great juice bars and yoga studios nearby, a Whole Foods that is 1.5 miles away and a few of the best vegan and raw vegan restaurants in the US are within blocks of our front doors. There are parks, tennis courts, and basketball courts within a hundred yards of our building. We really love the Sunday morning farmer's market across the street, the bike path that goes for miles along the water, and the juice bar on the corner!
Santa Monica has a really good bus system, though we can't speak for the rest of LA :) If you're a walker you will never lack for anything to do around here. Bikes also are very easy and rentals are easily available if you will need more than one. If you have plans to travel throughout LA you will probably want your own car. A cab from LAX to our door will cost about $30.

About the Host, Ashleigh
I'm from Los Angeles and love living on the beach, but also love traveling anytime the opportunity comes up! I'm a health nut so anything active and hippie-leaning is up my alley. I can't live without sunshine, green juice, poetry, good conversations with friends, and my sweet husband and daughter.
