The Pacific Ocean is only five blocks from this comfortable, well-appointed home. You can stop for a coffee, grab a bite, or visit the shops on Main Street on the way. The Third Street Promenade and world famous Santa Monica Pier are less than a mile away. In the other direction are the Venice Canals and also trendy Abbot Kinney Blvd, with eclectic stores, art galleries and more wonderful dining choices. Ten minutes walk and you are on the Venice Boardwalk.
The house is 1,100 square feet on one level. There is a King size bed in one bedroom and a Queen size memory foam bed in the other. In an adjoining side room there is a single bed for a kid, or a nap during the day.
The kitchen is fully equipped. Stock up on groceries, or get prepared food and specialty wines and beer at Whole Foods just a half-mile away.
There is a small deck for outdoor dining or morning coffee. We have cable TV, with HBO and Cinemax channels, and wireless internet for time spent at home.
There is a fantastic Farmer's Market 3 blocks away every Sunday and gourmet food trucks park there on Tuesday evenings, for an easy, local dinner option.
Main Street restaurants include coffee at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Starbucks or Urth Caffe. Find fine cuisine at Chinois on Main and Chaya Venice, or something less formal at Library Alehouse, Holy Guacamole, Panini Grill, Finn McCool’s, Wildflour Pizza, M Street Kitchen and La Vechia - to name a few.
This home is perfect if you are in LA for work or vacation. You can enjoy surfing, boogie boarding either down at Santa Monica Beach or at the Venice Beach breakwater; rollerblading or bike riding (rentals for both at the beach) on the bike path that winds along the beach from Pacific Palisades to Palos Verdes – especially great at sunset. Take a walk on the famous Venice Boardwalk.
Pacific Coast Highway and the 10 Freeway are nearby, so a drive to Malibu, coastal hikes or visits/meetings at Los Angeles destinations are easy.
This is a residential, quiet and safe neighborhood. My wife and I live right next door, so can help with your queries, and additional local info.

Our family stayed at Jake and Belinda's house and we were happy from the moment we walked in. Beautiful house, lovely neighbourhood, very short walk down to shops and lovely cafe's. House was clean and bright and a pleasure to stay in. We would definately recommend it and would love to stay there again. Jake and Belinda had thoughtfully left a nice bottle of wine and some ground coffee for us on arrival which went down very well. 10/10 thankyou :)
Great location., close to Santa Monica Pier, Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Venice Beach, and 3rd Street Promenade.,
Fantastic house & location. We enjoyed our 1 week stay here. The house was clean and comfortable, with everything you need for a comfortable stay (fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine & dryer…). So close to High St and everything Santa Monica has to offer and easy access to the highway leading you the the rest of LA. Also, easy drive to and from airport.
It was also really easy and a pleasure to deal with Jake & Belinda. They were great hosts, and knew the area really well. Our kids loved playing with their daughter as well, so it felt like home during our stay.
Overall, would recommend and would stay again.
We had a wonderful week at this bright, sunny bungalow which is walking distance from everything you need. Our morning strolls to the beach to watch seals and surfers were glorious.
Jake & Belinda were charming hosts - the fresh coffee beans, wine and flowers were a lovely touch. We will be back!
Jake and Belinda were lovely hosts. They had a bottle of wine, flowers and a bag of coffee grinds waiting for us when we arrived. Their home is tastefully decorated, very well appointed and a short walk to the beach. It was the perfect place for our little family's Santa Monica stay.
Jake & Belinda were fantastic hosts. Their sincere effort in welcoming us into their home was so appreciated. From the bottle of wine and fresh flowers waiting for us to the extra mile Jake went offering to grab milk for my wife with a newborn was so refreshing and surprising. We definitely would recommend this beautiful home to any and everyone. Thanks Jake & Belinda!
Jake and Belinda have been great hosts! We've stayed at their place for almost 5 weeks and enjoyed the neighborhood and close access to the beach very much. The house was newly renovated and a place in which you can feel immediately at home.
