Charming, old beach studio in Pacific Palisades with beautiful view of the beach and ocean. One bathroom with walk-in shower, kitchen with mini-fridge, toaster oven, microwave, hotplate for cooking, Brita water system, french press, and electric teapot. There is plenty of bench seating, and a table that you can eat at. There is 1 queen size memory foam bed, 1 futon that folds to a full or queen size "bed" and is comfy, and there is plenty of bench seating in the back area and kitchen area, that a person, or people can sleep on. GREAT VIEW!!!!
This beach studio sits atop a cliff in the Pacific Palisades. It is the downstairs unit of a charming, old beach house built in 1950. You have your own private large deck and entrance. The unit above has tenants therefore you may hear footsteps. If it bothers you while you are sleeping, then there are ear plugs in the bathroom medicine cabinet. This family typically goes to bed early. There is AC and heating in the studio, but unfortunately, it is controlled by the house above. It usually stays around 70 degrees. If that is too hot or cold, we also have a space heater, and large fan. There is a great ocean breeze that cools the house when the windows are open.
We live on the side of a mountain overlooking the ocean surrounded by nature. It is beautiful and a little wild, so be prepared to see beautiful wildlife and the occasional critter wanting to hang out with you. Strong breezes and the smell of the ocean greet you. Please note that if you have more than 4 people that sleep here, the 5th person needs to sleep on bench seating. It is relatively comfortable, but it isn't a "bed" situation. :)
The whole studio and lower balcony. It is a large size for being a studio; plus you have the large balcony, which is almost as big as the studio where you can bbq as well as gather around the fire pit. Great for families to sit out and watch the sunset. You have your own full size grill. The beach is also right down the hill. You can cross the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) over a walking bridge and you will have your feet in the sand. Its a quick walk or drive. The patio now has patio ambient lighting, all you have to do is plug in the lights while you sit outside on the seating.
There will be no in-person interaction unless there is an issue. The owner lives above. You can message us through the app ideally if you need anything, text or even walk upstairs and knock on the door if we are home.
Beautiful streets that overlook the expansive ocean. True paradise. The US-1 (scenic Pacific Coast Highway) is near our home. You can drive up and down the coast. Only a couple minutes from the beach. You can walk there from the studio. To get across PCH without playing frogger, walk down our street until the dead end and there is a foot bridge leading across directly to the beach. We are surrounded by nature and have beautiful wildlife, including hummingbirds, hawks, parrots, coyotes, lizards, dolphins, and all kinds of other amazing creatures.
Buses go up the highway, just down the hill from the studio. You can also take Uber or Lyft to get around. If you wanted to get to other parts of the city, you can take the subway from Santa Monica and head east.
