About this listing
Everyone who has stayed here has been delighted. My home is very clean, full of light, and a good atmosphere, with outdoor space and a bicycle you are welcome to use. I've experienced nothing but harmony with the guests I've invited!
Your new room! Freshly painted, lots of light, and with access to den, kitchen, office space, and backyard with pool!
Light and cheery bedroom in very prestigious and safe neighborhood, just blocks from the bluffs above the ocean and the shops and restaurants on Montana Ave etc. A wonderful place for long walks and bicycling.
The home is quiet, low-key, warm, and welcoming, whimsical, and fun. It is definitely an artist household, with a guitar in the front room and walls full of books. It would be messier, except we have a housekeeper three times a week!
You are invited to use the piano in the living room, the airy breakfast room, and blue-tiled kitchen.
Lots of parking available. Neighborhood market two blocks away and Whole Foods and Yoga Works also within walking distance. In fact, Poquito Mas and Vegie Grill are also a nice little walk away!
I heat the pool in the summer - or anytime, if you promise you will use it! Whenever I'm at home in the fresh air of Santa Monica, I feel like I'm on vacation!
We're ten-fifteen minutes by car from Venice Beach, a half-hour from Malibu, twenty minutes (except in rush hour) from Beverly Hills and a bit further, to Hollywood, Silverlake, and downtown. An hour from Disneyland, one and a half to two hours from either San Diego or Santa Barbara. Lovely weather year round. Ocean breeze and a street lined with palm trees.
I bet this room would have been booked all the time if I hadn't taken it off AirBnb for a year, as I had a friend living here.
Who wouldn't love it here?
Pool, kitchen, backyard with comfortable seats to read and tables to work on. May use kitchen, breakfast room, piano, swimming pool, bicycle and per request, any other room downstairs that you need. I mainly reside upstairs, where my office and bedroom are. Bathroom with shower and tub, and empty drawers for you to use is shared with lovely permanent female roommate who stays in her room 90% of time (2 of us live in 3000 sq. foot house.)
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as they care to! I went to yoga with one guest, and another mainly stayed in her room when she wasn't working in the light and airy breakfast room or outside on the patio furniture and using kitchen. I'm very respectful of people's privacy, but interact should guests care to.
Very upscale (houses are 3 million and up) neighborhood, safe, beautiful and convenient to everything you need, all within pleasant walking distance.
Santa Monica's Big Blue Bus is within walking distance, which makes it very easy to get around. There is plenty of street parking and a very nice bike you can use. Walking distance from everything you would need or want!
Other Things to Note
Great deal! The only reason it hasn't been booked year round is because a friend stayed for a year. Prefer female guests and I am choosey about who stays here, as harmony is vital to me. I have two very aloof cats who don't have voices, so they don't make noise or bother you, but if you have allergies...
Polite and communicative - let me know if anything is less that perfectly satisfying.
