Our home is a classic airplane Craftsman style house built in 1913. It is my childhood home and filled with paintings by my parents, who were both working artists. We are a five-minute walk to Santa Monica beach and even closer to Main Street, which has a variety of restaurants, shops, nightclubs, pubs, and coffee houses. There are several bikes included with the room reservation and available to our guests to explore Santa Monica, Venice beach, and beyond.
The bedroom, which has a queen-size bed with high thread count linens, and private bathroom both have garden views. The suite is on the first floor 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 and in the garden spaces. We provide a hairdryer, flat iron, and bath and beach towels for our guests. There is a flatscreen TV with cable and HDTV in the bedroom. Use of the kitchen, outdoor bbq, garden spaces, washer/dryer, and jacuzzi hot tub is also included with the reservation.
Santa Monica feels more like a neighborhood than a city. There are concerts at the Santa Monica Pier in summer, weekly farmer's markets year-round, regular free movies on the lawn of the California Heritage Museum, gourmet food truck events, and all are within walking distance.
We are located about 20 minutes from LAX and bus lines are easily accessible from the house. The Big Blue Bus is efficient for travel to downtown Santa Monica and Third Street Promenade, Malibu beach, West Los Angeles, and Downtown L.A.
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.

Dale & Paul were amazing hosts! The house was great & the location was amazing. They gave us fantastic advice on where to go..everything we needed was at our finger tips. Shops, cafes, restaurants, and the beach were all within a 10 minute walk. Whilst always open to having a chat, they also have us privacy. Dale & Paul were super generous in allowing us to take the bikes out for a ride along the esplanade (Santa Monica pier to Venice beach). All in all, we highly recommend staying there!
Dale and Paul were wonderful hosts ! They were extremely kind and considerate, and have an amazingly comfortable home- a very welcoming atmosphere.
The bed was incredibly comfortable- I never wanted to get out of it! An extremely clean and inviting environment.
We had some great conversations together, they are a very entertaining pair- just delightful. They gave very helpful information about local places- cafes, restaurants, shopping etc.; and of course, their house is in a great location. Its proximity to the beach ia an extremely attractive feature.
Their little dog Dug is a darling- just trots around and minds his own business.
A great place to stay! I highly recommend it, and I look forward to coming back to stay in their fabulous home.
Excellent location, very good hosts.
Dale and Paul's place is near the beach, good restaurants, and interesting shopping. Borrowing a bike from them and coasting along the Santa Monica boardwalk was one of my most memorable days in LA. They provide a great bed and a friendly environment. I had lots of good advice from them on where to go and what to see. I definitely recommend this place.
Great place! Paul, Dale (and Dug :-)) are very nice and thoughtful hosts. We had everything we could wish for and both of them are very generous and fun. The location of their house is fabulous - within walking distance to main street, restaurants, bars, shops and of course to the beach. Dale and Paul will help you to find the best things to do around Santa Monica. The house is amazing. The bedroom is very cosy and quiet and equipped with everything you might need; it provides a TV set, a wonderful bed (we never slept sooo well!), a heater and even an electric blanket. The bathroom is equipped with every toiletry you might possibly need. We highly recommend staying here. Dale and Paul thank you so much for a wonderful time here in Santa Monica. We are looking forward to staying here again.
Great hosts, the bedroom/bathroom were very comfortable and very quiet. We made a lot of use of patio area, hot tub and kitchen plus the bicycles, Dale and Paul made us feel "at home" they were friendly and fun plus knowledgable about the area (which has so much to offer) You MUST visit Huntington House and Gardens if you get a chance- WOW!
We had a wonderful time at Dale and Paul´s. The bedroom is very confortable and in the bathroom we could find all the amenities expected in a 5 star hotel. The hosts were lovely and very helpful. I definately recommend the place and would most definately stay there again. Thank you so much guys!!!
Dale and Paul were a very kind gentlemen. I've passed an excellent and calm stay.
The house is well positioned and very close to all commodities (Beach, Downtown, Shops...etc.)
I highly recommend this place and Dale & Paul's house.
La maison de Dale et Paul est parfaitement située. L'accueil a été chaleureux et convivial. Le centre ville et la plage sont à quelques encablures à Vélo (gracieusement prêté par Paul et Dave). Il y a toutes les commodités dans la maison, mais comme je suis sorti 90% du temps j'ai pas eu à les utiliser. La ville est un lieu unique pour se ressourcer (Plage, Sport, Balades) et s'amuser (Bar, Restos...etc.) : Un séjour exceptionnel.
Allez-y les yeux fermés (mais pas trop car le coucher du soleil est sublime)
Merci et à très bientôt.
Paul and Dale were our first Airbnb experience. And I can only recommend them. Their house is located, near all the trendy shops and restaurants of Santa Monica, in between Venice Beach and Santa Monica pier. The room is cosy and the bed very comfortable. And Paul and Dale are two warm and friendly hosts who will do everything to guide you in the city of angels. We really had a great holiday!
We stay 5 days in Santa Monica. Dale and Paul are great hosts and super friendly Great space and comfort! Also placed within the historic Santa Monica district, where you don't even have to go far for a great lunch, dining or walk on the beach! The bikes provided is also an option to ride between Venice and Santa Monica. It was a pleasure to stay in this kind and confortable place. Great feeling of security, hospitality, privacy and warm welcomes every time. Bed was comfortable and the kitchen was also available for cocking! Place is wonderful and we can't wait to come back!
This was our first airbnb experience in the States and it was as amazing as all other reviews. We stayed at Dale and Paul's for one night and the next day we wish we could stay there for more days. The location is fantastic for everything you want to see in Santa Monica. Walking distance to the beach, shopping and dining area, also to bus or metro stations. Dale and Paul were super friendly and warm for all of our questions. The room was adorable, clean, bright and especially the bed was the best. We turned on the heater for the bed and had the best sleep ever. The washroom was clean as well, there was hair drier as well which for me was extremely important. Dale and Paul answered all of our questions and we were very satisfied with everything. Thanks to them, we had amazing time in Santa Monica, Definitely coming back next time and explore Santa Monica more. Strongly recommend.
