About this listing
Enter through the wooden gate into a romantic courtyard, with a wood burning fireplace and the sound of water trickling in the fountain. This charming 3 bedroom Spanish home, featured in 'House Beautiful' magazine is located in the beautiful, tree-lined neighborhood north of Montana Avenue within walking distance of the shops and cafes, and of course the beach. With all the nearby amenities, this is the perfect family getaway.
The heart of the home is a SmallBone gourmet kitchen with Viking Stove and Sub Zero appliances with an English solarium breakfast room that looks out onto a secluded, private garden with a kid's tree house and swing.
All three bedrooms are large with a king sized bed in the master and French doors opening to the garden. A large picture window in the guest room and bunk beds and en-suite bathroom in the kid's room.
As described in the listing. Great space for a family, comfortable and clean. Two of three rooms are kids rooms. Host was very gracious in providing some snacks and allot of food necessities. Perfectly located right around the corner from the main shopping on Montana. Only issue was on checkout the cleaning lady showed up at 8 AM knocking on bedroom window and was pushing to get in all the rooms to clean so felt very rushed to get out which was unfortunate since everything else was pretty much perfect.
We loved staying at this beautiful home. It has a lovely outdoor courtyard and backyard which we took full advantage of during our week long stay. Communicating / coordinating with the owners was very easy and they welcomed us with a basket full of goodies. Our family had a wonderful time - thank you!
This is such a beautiful family home, and just what a Santa Monica house should look like! We spent a wonderful week exploring Santa Monica, but equally enjoyed returning to hang out in this beautiful & comfortable house.
Lisa was very helpful in suggesting restaurants, family activites & general information about the neighbourhood. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more!
We arrived with easy access to the home. A holiday cake was waiting for us with other little coupons and I think a bottle of wine. Directions on how to and where in the house were clearly written so we knew how to care for our week long stay. The home is bright ,open and very welcoming. You can't beat staying in this spacious home off of Montana Ave. There are plenty of great places to eat and shop. If you are ambitious, you can easily walk to the beach,the steps and 3rd street promenade. We did it all and never rented a car. We especially loved sitting outside by the gas fireplace at night and visiting with family. We loved staying here and would absolutely do it again.
We had a GREAT time at Lisa's house! It is a wonderful family home and Lisa made us feel SOO welcome. It was Xmas and there was a big Xmas tree and she left us wonderful goodies. My boys loved it. I really can't say enough how great it was and I am known for being on the fussy side. We will be back!
A fabulous property which was exactly as described. We were made to feel very welcome and at home. All rooms a good size and comfortable and a real bonus with super outdoor courtyard sitting and fireplace. A great location for the beach (could walk or drive - always found parking). Good location for local shops, banks places to eat (in fact anything you might need). We felt very comfortable strolling around the local neighbourhood which was very attractive.
We could not have asked more from the home or the owners!
The neighbourhood is very quiet yet close to the beach, shops, restaurants. We also found it easy to visit all there is to see in L.A.
There was enough space for our teenagers to spread around. We all enjoyed the solarium and the garden.
Lisa and Nick were always readily available to answer questions. They took the time to greet us when we came in and left treats. Such a nice touch!
