Perks for the Parents

This beautiful architect-designed 1-level house is set on a tree-lined street between Venice and Culver City and includes plenty for young children. The location makes it easy to reach other LA neighborhood and is great for strolls to local parks and bike rides to the beach. The house is on 1 level, so no need to worry about stairs, and the living space opens up to a backyard that makes it easy to watch children while entertaining, eating, and more.

Why Kids Love it

This house is great for under 5s, with plenty of toys and books for that age group. It is very close to local park at Penmar, and an easy bike ride to the beach. The quiet neighborhood streets are perfect for strolls or scooter rides. A high chair, and toys (including bath) will all be provided. The kids bedroom is fully equipped with a toddler bed (that can be converted to crib), glider chair, changing table/diaper genie, and books and toys.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 days. Note that the second bathroom has a large tub insert for the shower and no tub. The home comes with all kid amenities (e.g. toys, eating utensils, stroller, bike / kid's seat, changing table, glider chair). The third bedroom is used as an office and includes a convertible sofa bed. A single air bed can be added on request. There is a corner store 2 blocks away for last-minute milk and necessity runs. Car rental suggested for this area.

About the Location

The house is centrally located between Venice and Culver City, making it 15-20 minutes to Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, and within a 5-minute drive to Venice shopping, restaurants, and the beach. It takes about 20-25 minutes to reach LAX Airport. It is a short drive to the LA Metro, which you can take downtown and to the Natural History Museum or Science & Space Museum. Mar Vista is extremely family friendly - a lot of new families have moved here to get out of the traffic and congestion of Venice.

Accommodation Details

This 1-floor house includes 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The open plan living space includes a lounge and kitchen with Thermador appliances and a 6-burner stove. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed, walk-in closet and bathroom with tub and shower. The second bedroom is a kids room with toddler bed, convertible to a crib. The study has a double sofa bed. The living area and master bedroom both have large sliding door access to a charming backyard with built-in grill.

Style Notes

Modern Ranch. The modern architectural home was built in 2013, and is reminiscent of mid-century modern ranch homes. With skylights throughout, the house is flooded with natural light; the main living space has 14' high ceilings. The owners take inspiration from the mid-century modern ranch homes of Southern California, while incorporating modern updates. The interiors are a mix of vintage, contemporary and hand-crafted one-of-a-kind pieces.

My husband and I (and our two year-old son) have lived and worked in Los Angeles since 2008. We are transplants from Boulder, Colorado, and New York. We love all the cultural happenings that LA has to offer, along with the incredible access to outdoors, surfing, hiking, etc.

This is an absolutely lovely house conveniently located on the West Side of LA with all the amenities that two kids under three would ever need. It has been over a month since we were there, and our daughter is still talking non-stop about wanting to go back to her "vacation house." And, Mia is a great host to boot!

Mar Vista, Los Angeles

Close to the beach

Sandwiched between Culver City and Venice Beach, this family-friendly neighborhood has palm tree-lined boulevards and friendly neighbors and is a great spot for a family break near the sea. Grab some bikes and strike out - it’s around 10-15 minutes to the beach - or spend time playing at the Mar Vista Recreation Area.
