Modern amenities with “old world” touches - just a stone’s throw away from the beach!

This charming 2+1 bungalow unit fosters a sense of spaciousness with high ceilings accented by classic crown molding, along with the beauty of natural hardwood flooring.

Do you enjoy cooking? The recently renovated kitchen is a joy to use with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.
Convenience and fun is yours when you’re just 9 blocks away from the beach and Third Street Promenade and a short 12 blocks from the Santa Monica Pier!

We had a very positive experience. The house is in a great location (easy walk to the beach), and our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids) was very comfortable. Kathryn was a helpful host and provided us with lots of useful information. Also, parking in Santa Monica can be difficult, but we never had any trouble finding parking near the house (using the parking pass provided by the host). Would definitely recommended it to others.
This apartment has a convenient location with few blocks from the beach, Santa Monica Pier, 3rd street promenade, Venice,…
Fully equipped it will fit easily 4 people.
Everything went smoothly booking this adorable apartment for our July vacation. We were a family of 5 with 3 kids and had plenty of room. The pictures were all accurate, it was clean and roomy. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need, we bought some food to stock the fridge on our first day. Parking was always available on the street, using the parking pass she provided. We never had problems finding a spot on the block.
There is a chain drugstore walking distance as well. We drove the few mins. to Santa Monica many times, using the parking lot on 2nd and Broadway. Kathryn sent an email checking up on us during the stay. Very nice touch, along with the wine and chocolate! We also enjoyed sitting outside on the private patio. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
All was prepared when we came an looked nicely.
Good book with instructions.
Kathryn was easy to contact and provided us with lots of useful information while staying with her. She was a very helpful host and was committed to ensuring that we had a good stay. The location was good; it was a quiet area that felt safe, but there were not too many stores or restaurants near by to quickly grab things we needed. We stayed 4 people in the unit, using the 3 beds and the pull out couch. The space worked for 4 people and we were comfortable throughout our stay.
We had a really nice time in La Casa by the sea. The house is exactly as seen on the pictures, and everything it says it comes with is there. Kitchen is complete, and parking is easy. Kathryn was a very good host, aside from a slight issue with the keys, which she quickly resolved, our stay went very well. Neighborhood is okay, very near everything you will need. Michigan Ave can be noisy at times, but overall its location is very central.
My family and I had a wonderful stay at La casa by the sea! Not as spacious as the pictures perceived but with 2 toddlers nothing seems spacious. The location was convenient and a few minutes drive to the beach, pier and promenade. Kathryn even checked in on us to see if we needed anything and texts/emails were answered promptly. Would definitely recommend this place!!

About the Host, Kathryn
I've lived in Santa Monica since the mid 1990's. I've always enjoyed the perfect weather, walking around the Promenade, and exploring great restaurants.
