Perks for the Parents

This open and airy Cape Cod-style house perches on a hill in Santa Monica’s Sunset Park, a short drive from the beach, and has a jacuzzi on the terrace. Just 3 blocks from a park with a playground, playing fields and sports courts, 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. Best of all, it’s just a 15-minute walk to the restaurants and shops on Main Street Santa Monica and Venice's Rose Avenue.

Why Kids Love it

There are 2 children’s bedrooms, one with a twin bed and rollaway bed, and one with 2 twin beds. Both kids rooms have toys, books and fun hanging hammock chairs. There is a lawned garden with playhouse, swings and room to run around. Plenty of extra items are provided for young kids, including a Pack 'n' Play, high chair, tricycle, blocks, play kitchen and dolls. For days at the beach, beach toys, sun umbrella, cooler and 4 beach chairs are also provided. Bikes are available to borrow: 1 men's bike, 1 women's bike 1, 1 teen bike, and 2 children's' bikes (one for 8-10-year-olds, and one for 5-year-olds).

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights. Rates listed are for a stay of up to 2 weeks. Discounts are available for longer stays - please contact the host for further details. Note there are no stair gates and there are a couple of steps up to the house from street level. A jacuzzi (with a safety lock on the lid) is located on the side terrace. WiFi throughout; TV with DVD player. FYI! This residence is home to a small dog, who will be away during your visit.

About the Location

The residence is in Santa Monica, around 20 minutes from LAX airport by car/taxi and the same from downtown LA. It is a mile from the closest beach (around 5-minutes by car) and a 5-minute walk from the closest park. Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice is a 5-minute drive away, while 3rd Street Promenade and the Santa Monica Pier are a 10-minute drive away. Car rental is recommended for this location; there is easy parking on street nearby.

Style Notes

Beach retreat. This light and airy home has great family spaces and comfortable touches throughout to make a stay in Santa Monica with kids a breeze. The layout with a breakfast bar open to the lounge/diner makes looking after kids while preparing meals easy. The main lounge area has a kids play space with table and play kitchen. We love the hanging hammock chairs in the kids rooms, the pared-back decor and the overall amount of space.

good location and kid friendly. worked out well. Only complaint was when we thought we lost the key and called the number we were give-not the owner's-there was no answer and the voice mail box was full. This is not good.

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!!!

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.
