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 Egyptian cotton 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 (email hidden) with cable 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.

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.
My wife and I were only there one night. It was and interesting home and friendly hosts and a good location. Would have preferred a little more privacy, though.
We are a little surprised by Tom's last comment because we feel the first-floor space is very private, as do many of our guests in previous reviews. The bedroom, the bathroom, and the hall that connects them are completely separated from the common areas (kitchen, dinning room, living room, and entry) of the house. This is our home, so obviously we share the common areas with our guests. The bedroom looks out onto a private garden that is sometimes frequented by Dug our dog, but he's a very discrete little guy ;)
I loved staying at Paul and Dales (website hidden) reminded me very much of home and Paul and Dale are very welcoming and I would highly recommend anyone to stay there. I have done so already to friends in New Zealand. Their little dog Doug is a wee treasure. The location is great and easy to walk or get the big blue bus anywhere.The house is quiet and clean and colourful. Perfect.
Dale and Paul are so nice，kindly provide us so much suggestion and wondelful places to go. The place of the house is also very good，you can easily find and go anywhere you want，especially very near to internaltional airport，very important for you in rush hour on working days. Hope to see them again^_^
Great place! Extremely comfortable and within walking distance to shops and the beach. Dale and Paul were extremely warm people and helpful with suggestions of things to do around LA. The room and bathroom were private and had a lot of attention to detail- including every toiletry you might possibly need. Backyard is gorgeous. Great experience. We would not hesitate to stay there again.
Dale and Paul are interesting, fun and smart and their home is truly a delight. Beware, the bed is so comfortable you don't want to get out of it which is tricky cause there is so much to do and see within walking distance.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our hosts and their wonderfully unique home!
Beeing with the locals - in the middle of Santa Monica - a gorgeous house close to the beach and 2 really nice and relaxed hosts. My boyfriend and I had a great time and we´ll definitely come back again. Thanks again Dale & Paul
We stayed for 3 nights. The bed was comfortable and the shower was good. Accommodations were very clean and hosts had thought of everything you might need from hair dryer to wifi to travel guides. We enjoyed especially talking with them about themselves as well as the area. It was our first airbnb experience and we highly recommend staying here.
