We are a legal, city-approved short-term rental : License #217082
The Studio is connected to the main house by a terrace and has separate entrance, kitchen & bath. Beautiful light comes in the bay window surrounded by trees to create an oasis in the middle of the bustle of LA. The guest house is secure, clean and private. Plenty of linens, towels, soap and a kitchen with cooking essentials are provided. There is a shared washer & dryer outside you can use. Also an iron & board, hair dryer, flat iron, beach towels, beach basket, Nespresso coffee machine + pods, free WiFi and a 32" TV with Cable including HBO, Showtime, etc.
Please note; There is a flight of stairs to access the guest house, which is located above the garage. Though not yet in the pictures, there are now curtains on the large bay window and blinds on the kitchen window. All the other windows have simple roller shades. So your privacy and light filters are in place for lazy mornings...
We are one mile south of the Santa Monica Pier and one mile north of the Venice Boardwalk. Abbott Kinney, 3rd Street Promenade, Montana Avenue and Malibu are all nearby.
There is a parking permit if you have a car for free street parking. Please keep in mind we live in a very popular neighborhood and parking may mean walking a couple blocks or more. Uber-ing during your trip is the easiest option by far. Also, the Big Blue Bus runs along Main Street to the Promenade. The newly completed Metro Expo Rail line connects you from SaMo to Downtown LA in 45 minutes. There are rentable Hulu bikes 1 block away. So lots of options for getting around, but your feet will take you to one of the most sought after locations in LA.
We are available to help you navigate the neighborhood and help with any needs you may have in addition to the well-stocked unit.
