Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath just blocks from the Santa Monica beach.

The Heart House is located in Santa Monica Canyon. A stunning area at the north end of Santa Monica. Our house is just a block to the beach and only a 5 minute walk to the world famous Will Rogers Beach, also known as “Bay Watch Beach". This charming bungalow is perfect for couples or families with 2 children. Two Bedrooms, two bathrooms, a King size bed in the Master Bedroom and two twins in the 2nd Bedroom. We are happy to accommodate 5 people as long as one is a small child that can use a pack and play. House features include complete privacy behind beautiful Redwood Fence and Gate. There is a spacious Indoor/Outdoor Room for entertaining and relaxing. Other features include Free Wi-Fi High Speed Internet connectivity, DirecTV, all new Stainless Steel appliances, 50' LED Flat screen HD television, beautiful floor to ceiling brick gas Fireplace in the Living Room, a four person Jacuzzi Hot Tub and mini ping pong table for the kids. Parking is provided for one car on the property as well as ample street parking.

The Heart House does not have central air conditioning. Because we are located so close to the beach we rarely even need it. We do however have a portable unit that we can set up for you. It will cool the master bedroom down but not the whole house. All the rooms are also equipped with ceiling fans that do a wonderful job cooling the rooms.

Seven restaurants are easily accessible within a 2 minute walk, as well as a small market and liquor store.

No keys to deal with or lose during your stay. Both the Front Gate and Front Door to the house is controlled by an Electronic Door lock and both use the same pass-code, for your convenience! You simply get a 4 digit code to make your stay that much easier.

Not only is your ideal vacation bungalow close to the beach, but you also have easy access to Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, Malibu and all of Los Angeles, including West Los Angeles, Westwood, Brentwood and all of Western Los Angeles County. UCLA, Pepperdine, The Getty Museum, Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, Westwood, Beverly Hills, Hollywood and Universal Studios are all an easy drive. And Six Flags Magic Mountain, Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm are all within an hour’s drive. And if Art and Culture is your thing, there are too many places to list here within an hour’s drive.

We are excited to announce that a brand new Perry's Cafe and Bike Rental just opened at the beach by the Heart House so renting bikes has never been easier! Just walk down the block to the beach, rent your bikes and head down the bike path to visit Santa Monica, Venice, Marina Del Rey and beyond!

Enjoyed our stay in this comfortable, charming house.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location within walking distance to the beautiful beach. The house was clean, looked just as pictured and the neighborhood was lovely. My daughter enjoyed the hot tub and we appreciated having off street parking. Friendly well organized hosts. We would definitely stay again.

Really nice place in a great area.

  • 5 of 5

We went to LA for my son's graduation from UCLA. We picked the Santa Monica area since it is close to UCLA and the beach and the Santa Monica Mountains all at the same time.

In LA, traffic can be a problem but from the Heart House we always had a few options (PCH to the 10, Sunset, San Vicente, etc...).

As far as the house, it is really nice, clean with good amenities and enough room for 3 or 4 people (or more if just coming by for a few drinks). It is on a busy street so there is traffic noise during the day but, at night, you can hear a pin drop it is so quite.

All in all, we left three days ago and I really miss being there....

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to attend a UCLA graduation and then to enjoy some vacation. The house is not large, but thoughtfully laid out, clean, and well-furnished. There are also plenty of food staples and supplies. We enjoyed using the hot tub; the open air sitting room; the swing chair outside; and the outdoor grill. The house is walking distance to the beach and a few restaurants, and short drives to the Santa Monica pier, the Getty, and UCLA. Parking for one car on site, and room for another on the curb out front (except for when the garbage truck comes by). Collette was helpful and on top of things. The house was accessible to one in our family who uses a walker; there is only one small step to the tile porch and front door; no tubs; and room for a raised commode. The only negative worth noting: there is a fair amount of traffic on the road outside the house (at least compared to what we are used to). The fencing eliminates the visual distraction, but the noise is there if you are sitting outside. But positives of this house far outweigh that. Overall, we'd return .

Map

Rustic Canyon Park is just a brisk walk or 2 minute drive away. This lovely neighborhood park boasts a shaded playground, tennis courts, basketball, baseball and a local outdoor pool. Behind the bungalow is shady, secluded streets and winding trails for hikers. Also, Temescal Gateway Park, just a 4 minute ride from your bungalow is nestled in a quiet canyon and is bordered by the majestic Santa Monica Mountains. Although the park is conveniently close to the city, its unparalleled natural beauty will make you feel as though you've entered another world.
