Perks for the Parents

The area is great for a family trip: the beach is a short bike ride away and there are several restaurants, 2 ice cream shops, and more shops just a short walk away. The house has plenty of toys and is great for a family with budding musicians: it has a piano, plus guitars, keyboards and electronic drums in the house - the owner was a professional musician. The downstairs bedroom was specifically designed to be a nanny room and has a separate entrance and full bath.

Why Kids Love it

Ocean, beach and plenty of outdoor recreational abound in this fun part of Santa Monica. The house is a block away from a huge park with playground, tennis and basketball courts, soccer field, beach volleyball, playgrounds and exercise circuit with running paths. There is also a child-care center at the park. One of the residence’s bedrooms is set up for a 6-year-old girl, so there is plenty on offer for children of this age. Reliable babysitters are available on request.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 days. The house is not child-proofed for babies or toddlers, although it easily could be. The piano is beautiful for a family with budding musicians. The owner was once a professional musician, so there are guitars, keyboards and electronic drums in the house, as well. All bedrooms have balconies, TVs and plenty of room for storage. There are no stair gates. Young children may need supervision on the balconies, accessible from every bedroom, and on the upper hallway.

About the Location

The residence is in the Sunset Park area of Santa Monica, with much within walking distance, the beach a short cycle ride away and plenty of outdoor fun to be had. There is plenty of street parking in the neighborhood. It is a safe and family-friendly area. It is a 20-minute drive to both LAX and downtown, with Santa Monica Airport just minutes away. Nearby, you’ll find Marina del Rey, fabulous ocean beaches, Santa Monica Pier and plenty of parks and playgrounds.

Style Notes

Elegant and spacious. This Mediterranean-style home is spread over 3,500sqft and includes high ceilings, modern furnishing and high end appliances. Walls are neutral and furnishings are family-friendly. We love the palm trees in the garden, the spacious family kitchen with breakfast bar, and the sense of space throughout.

Fantastic property! We had an awesome stay in this beautiful, high quality and well located home over Christmas week. It's in a lovely area of Santa Monica- short walk to a big, kid-friendly park, close access to the local coffee shop and convenience stores. The home is great - spacious, really well functioning, and a dream for kids - the family have a lot of toys which they left out for our kids - ideal for 7 year old girls. The kitchen was brilliant - great for cooking in - really high quality cooker, plus well equipped, and the hosts were generous in leaving out food to make cooking easier. The hosts were brilliant - a warm welcome, great guided tour, special trip back to the house with additional wi-fi tools, and responsive to questions throughout. Nice outdoor garden as well. Highly recommend this property for a family wanting to enjoy Santa Monica and LA. On-street parking outside (with 2 permits provided) made it v. easy and convenient.

Sun, Fun and Ice Cream

With three and a half miles of beach, Santa Monica is full of classic California scenery. Grab ice creams, crash bumper cars, and take a ride on the 9-story Ferris Wheel on Santa Monica pier, a kid’s dream destination. Afterward, test your strength on the climbing ropes and rings on the adjacent beach. Then cool off inside - kids under 12 get in free at the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium. Whatever kind of fun in the sun you seek, it’s here in Santa Monica.
