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.

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!

About Colette Sherouse & Lisa Davison

The owners of this lovely beach bungalow chose us to represent their property to help guarantee your stay in their home will be a vacation dream come true. We both live and work in Santa Monica and love being part of this amazing beach community. We have a wealth of information about the area and are here to assist you in any way we can.

Colette Sherouse & Lisa Davison purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Colette Sherouse & Lisa Davison chose Pacific Palisades

You can walk everywhere. If your #1 priority is the beach walk down the block, through the tunnel and you've arrived. Do you like Fine Dining, rustic Italian, Margaritas and Mexican Food? You'll pass them all on the way to the beach! Forgot your sunscreen, razor or missing your favorit magazine? That too is a short walk away at your local convenience store.

What makes this bungalow unique

The Heart House is the perfect vacation spot because you never have to use your car once you arrive. You can rent bikes right on the bike path and ride up and down the coast or walk to the beach and neighborhood restaurants and bars. Or...it is the perfect location to use as a home base as you explore the many different attractions this world class city has to offer. You choose!

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the heart house. The home is unbelievably cute and charming and the amenities and design is well thought out. My daughter couldn't stop talking about how much she loved "The cute little house." It was a delight discovering all the special touches inside and outside the house-the ping pong table, the covered outdoor room, the warm jacuzzi, the endless supply of towels, and all the beach accoutrements. The location can't be beat-one block to the beach, 10 minute walk to the incredible Annenberg Beach House, and right down the street from all the beauty of Malibu. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance or a 5 minute drive. We felt at home and comfortable in the house, both day and night. We were there during a hot spell and appreciated the powerful fans for each bedroom. We have young children and loved that the property was entirely secure and fenced in. The property manager, Colette, was very helpful and cooperative with arranging a late evening arrival time. She was extremely responsive and always easy to reach with questions. We hope to be back as soon as we can!

Wish we could go back next week

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific week at heart house, we picked it way back in January and booked it in March so we were looking forward to it for several months. It was everything we expected, good location, easy reach of restaurants and the beach, clean and welcoming, I would recommend Heart House to anyone wishing to stay in the Santa Monica area.

Excellent location and house!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Heart House! It had everything we needed and it was in a perfect location; close to the beach, 3rd Street Promenade, LA, Malibu, etc. We rode bikes to Venice Beach, visited the Getty House, went to Malibu, Laguna Beach for the day, Santa Monica Pier, Montana Ave. for great restaurants. We ate at Patrick's Roadside restaurant the first night as we were tired from the flight and it was great and it was nice to be able to walk there. Had lunch at the Ivy (highly recommend it but make reservations) and dinner at Nobu Malibu one night (again make reservation far in advance). One night we had friends over for a BBQ and we sat outside at the picnic table; what a great night! We found the "stairs" up the block and we walked them every day up to Ocean Ave to look at the beautiful views. It was so nice having 2 bathrooms and the beds were so comfortable! The living room was so cozy and we loved the room outside with the mini ping pong table which we played often! We only used the hot tub once but it's a very nice feature. We can't wait to book our next trip back!! The house is very well maintained and it was nice having a washer and dryer and beach chairs! Colette was on hand for any questions that came up and helped make the stay such an enjoyable one! Thank you!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed in this house for a week and we absolutely loved it. The location was great - the quick walk to the beach was awesome so we could do something in the morning and then hit the beach every afternoon. We loved the hot tub too. It was great to be able to make some meals in and relax in between activities. The house was super comfortable and worked as a great home base for trips to Los Angeles, Venice and Malibu - and beyond if you want. We all really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it!

A wonderful place in a wonderful location. Hosts were really as helpful as could ever be asked for. The two bedrooms were great for my wife and I and our little girl and her babysitter (shared a room with two twin beds). Two real baths were in very good condition. No signs of wear and tear anywhere on the property. Outdoor areas and covered outdoor areas were wonderful. Location was really excellent with multiple very good restaurants and night spots within one block. Beach was 1.5 blocks walk away, with every kind of beach and water sport item for rent or sale. If I owned this property, I could not say anything more to recommend it!

We loved it!

The Heart House is in the perfect location. It is clean and fresh with everything that you could need. Unlike the previous reviewer we didn’t find the lack of air conditioning to be a problem as opening the windows (protected by anti-insect mesh) created a cool breeze and the heating system can be set to circulate cool air – there are ceiling vents in each room. Colette met us with a bottle of wine and was very kind and helpful throughout our stay. We used it as a base for visiting the usual tourist attractions such as Universal Studios, Warner Bros tour (we got to be on the Big Bang Theory set!) and Hollywood etc. as well as Santa Monica shopping and the beach.

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.
