The residence is secluded and private, hidden in the gorgeous Santa Monica Canyon but near to the bright lights and attractions of Los Angeles with child-friendly restaurants a short walk away. The large, open spaces within the house make for easy family living so parents can relax while kids play.

Why Kids Love it

Just a 5-minute walk from a park with a swimming pool and recreation center, and 15 minutes’ walk to the beach, it’s ideal for families. The beach, the surf and a park close by make this location super easy with kids. The property has bikes and a skateboard to borrow, a games console and kids’ TV channels. The large garden that covers 2 lots provides plenty of play spaces. There are 2 kids bedrooms, 1 with bunk bed and the other with a twin bed and toddler bed.

Style Notes

California dreaming. This artistic and magical family home is a truly inspirational experience. A true Californian classic, designed by Thornton Abel, the timber-framed house is light-filled, open and inviting. The living room opens to the lush backyard. We love the glass-enclosed dining room that makes you feel like you are dining in a garden, the Koa wood and stone floors, and the elegant and tranquil garden.

We had a great stay at the Rustic Canyon residence. Beautiful and architecturally impressive home with really cool decor and furnishings. The house gave our family of four plenty of space and our children loved all of the books, toys, games, puzzles, and Lego bricks. Great location that is walkable to the beach and a few great restaurants that are about 1/2 mile away. Simon was very responsive before and during our stay, checking in to see if we needed anything. I really appreciate them letting us stay at their home and we hope to return in the future.

Santa Monica, Los Angeles

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.
