Perfect Beach Vacation Apt. Home

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Bicknell Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90405, United States

The Space

A perfect vacation apartment home with character - ONLY 2 BLOCKS FROM THE BEACH

We have decided to list our home as my wife and I have to travel back east many times this year for business and for friends' weddings. During these trips, we would like to rent out our home to help cover all our costs.
We only want to rent to responsible, kind, respectful people. Please only contact us if you are looking for a relaxing stay as we don't want to create friction with those surrounding us while we are gone.

If you are looking to combine a beach vacation with a few trips into Hollywood or up the coast to Malibu - this is the perfect central location.

You can walk and bike everywhere on the west side.

This is an apartment in a house with 4 separate units. You must be considerate to neighbors. They can be a bit quirky, but nice.

In the interest of making sure the renter isn't disappointed - The outside of the house needs a serious paint job. But the inside is awesome.

This is our home (rather than just a rental) so we are a little nervous about renting it out. Hopefully we find the right people.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Thank you very much for your interest...

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I had a great stay at James and Emily's flat. It's a good size flat and gets great breeze through the space. The bed is comfy and its very quiet at night so a great space to relax in. Communication with James was very easy with prompt answers to any queries. Location is great with coffee shops, restaurants, yoga studio and a fab spa within 5 mins walk. I borrowed Emily's bike as there is a great bike path along the beach. James was very honest about how the outside of the place needs a paint job and the common entrance and hall were run down but once in the flat it's a great quaint place.

  • This place was great! A few short blocks from the beach & an awesome neighborhood. Apt was extremely clean and James was super easy to contact and coordinate. The entire experience was fabulous. Thank you James & Emily!

    July 2013
  • James & Emily were very welcoming hosts. They provided everything I needed to enjoy a wonderful month in their Santa Monica home. Comfy bed, sun-filled office, huge kitchen. Just a few blocks from the Beach, so the breeze is fantastic. Walking distance from all the fun things to do on Main Street. James could not have been easier to communicate with. I highly recommend these hosts.
