This open and airy Cape Cod-style house perches on a hill in Santa Monica’s Sunset Park and sleeps up to 8. Just three blocks from a park with a playground, playing fields and sports courts, and a short drive from the beach, it’s ideal for families visiting this part of the city. The upper story overlooks a private back yard with lawn, swings and playhouse, and a child-safe balcony terrace overlooks the treetops and enjoys ocean breezes. Inside, there are generously-sized family spaces, including a lounge with a sunlit play area and a low table for art and games, and a family-sized kitchen with large Viking range. We love the hanging hammock chairs in the kids rooms, the pared-back decor and the overall amount of space.

We have rented the sunset park residence for the second time and we are still so happy. The house is perfect, still so beautifull and well maintained. Loch was easy to reach and answer to us very quick as usual. I recommend this house highly!!!

This is a perfect home for a perfect stay. The property is beautiful, tastefully decorated, full of toys and very well located. Loch and Emily made sure our stay was great. We really enjoyed our holidays there!

We had the pleasure of spending Christmas with our two kids and parents at the Gallagher house. It was perfect in so many ways and nothing was a problem leading upto our arrival. The offer of leaving their Xmas tree up for us was a very special and thoughtful addition.

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.
