About this listing

Our unique 1913 Craftsman home is an easy walk to restaurants, shops, and Santa Monica and Venice beaches. We offer bicycles with the reservation for guests to explore our neighborhood and experience the best of the southern California lifestyle. Parking is on the street, just double check street cleaning signs.

The space

Our home is a classic Craftsman-style house built in 1913. It is Dale's childhood home and decorated with paintings by his parents and collectables from our travels. We are a 5-minute walk to Santa Monica beach and even closer to Main Street, which has a variety of restaurants, boutique shops, nightclubs, pubs, and coffee houses. There are bicycles included with the reservation and available to our guests to explore Santa Monica, the pier, Third Street Promenade, Venice beach, Abbott Kinney Boulevard, and beyond.

The guest bedroom, which has a queen-size bed with high thread count linens, and guest bathroom both have garden views. The suite is on the first floor of our home and extremely private. Since we are located so close to the beach, the Pacific Ocean breezes keep the house cool and comfortable. Wifi is available throughout the house, garden spaces, and side patio. We provide a hairdryer, flat iron, robes, and bath and beach towels for our guests. There is also an HDTV flatscreen with DirecTV satellite service in the guest bedroom. Use of the kitchen, outdoor bbq, garden spaces, washer/dryer, and jacuzzi hot tub is also included with the reservation.

Guest access

Guests have access to all of the outdoor and downstairs indoor areas, which includes the living room, dining room, kitchen, garden, and side patio with Jacuzzi hot tub. The second floor areas are for our private use only.

Interaction with guests

We are both native Californians and have lived in Los Angeles for most of our lives. We'd be happy to help you navigate the city and get the most out of your stay in Santa Monica. We are always available to help our guests with questions and restaurant recommendations, but we also respect their need for privacy.

We'd like our guests to treat our house as they would their own home.
We have hardwood floors that can be damaged by sand, so please, please, please do a shake and a wipe down after a day at the beach :) Leave sandy shoes on the front porch.
We generally leave walking shoes in the front entry of the house and sandy beach towels on the front porch to dry. There is a bucket of water to wash your feet and a hose if you are really sandy. There is a broom and dust pan in your closet in case there is sand on the floor.
We have a curtain to the hallway to the guest bedroom and bathroom to offer our travelers more privacy. Please close the curtain when you're at home (so we know to keep the roar to a minimum!) and open it when you're out of the house.
We try to be considerate of people who are sensitive to scents by using unscented laundry detergent. We would appreciate it if you could use cologne and perfume with moderation.
There is an air conditioner in the room, please be sure to turn it off before you leave the house.
If you choose to smoke, you can do that on the side patio.

Dale is very helpful friendly guy. Gave us a tour around the house to show us how to use the W/D, kitchen appliances and showed us few touring guides. He provided us with maps and old us where to park and not to park. The location of the property is great and convenient. Bathroom had hair dryer/flat iron/new tooth brushes/toothpicks floss..etc. they provided us with beach towels but we did not use them. Dale and Paul provided us with extreme privacy that we enjoyed. I won't stay here again, because the room windows were very dirty/rusty/dusty that we couldn't open them for fresh air at night and instead we had to turn on the AC just to circulate some fresh air in the bathroom sink is not pleasant to the eye (dirty/rusty)and drain cap is missing as well as your small items if they fall in that hole in the sink. The baskets in the bathroom had a linen that is turning to yellowish (maybe it is clean but definitely old and needs to be changed). The house had a strong odor for me to bear but our room didn't.

Dale and Paul are better than Superhosts! They have taken Airbnb, and for that matter, holiday accommodation to a whole new level. No hotel that I've ever stayed in offers what Dale and Paul do. They've thought of absolutely everything that you could possibly need plus some. Staying with Dale and Paul is like staying with friends. We felt so welcomed and at home in their home. Dale and Paul are amazingly located, close enough that you can walk or ride to the action but far enough away that you can get a great night sleep in peace and quite. I would absolutely recommend staying with the boys. I will definitely be back :)

Though I didn't have too much time to spend in Santa Monica, I had a very enjoyable stay at Dale & Paul's beautiful and historic home. Located in a neighborhood and just four blocks from the beach, their home was a charming and comforting oasis. Everything was considered and Dale was an enthusiastic and gracious host (hadn't had the chance to meet Paul during my short stay). I would highly recommend this home for anyone looking to stay in the heart of Santa Monica. My only regret is that I couldn't stay longer!

Excellent location. No need for a car. We used the bikes to go everywhere. We really liked the old house ambience. The bed was nice but a little squishy for 2 people. Dale and Paul were very friendly.

My stay at Dale and Paul's in Santa Monica could not have been better: Beautiful and comfortable space - boasting all the vintage charm a heart could desire; Close (as in walkable) to shopping, restaurants and beach; And fantastic Hosts! Next time I will be take advantage of the Jacuzzi!

The visit at Dale and Paul´s wonderful historic house next to Santa Monica beach was great. So lovely persons and such a warm hospitality I never met. We also had all together a great barbeque and really interesting talks until late night. The room is totaly clean and super comfortable and everywhere in the house you feel this Spirit of art and LA Lifestyle. we really enjoyed the time there and will come back as soon as we can make it all the long way from Bavaria... We came as guests and almost left as friends. The best way to use Airbnb service. Thanks guys Manuel, Koko and Little Babygirl Ella
