James Ulmer purchased this house in 2001
Great value for the price, very convenient to the cafes, beaches, cinemas and shopping of the wonderful West side. A great location in what is already a world-class 'destination location.' Lovely backyard and charming front porch -- and lots of fountains and flowers that are a hit with the hummingbirds.
Peaceful and quiet backyard terra-cotta patio (with charcoal BBQ) framed by bougainvillea and fountain looking out onto our lovely backyard garden and fruit trees. Complementary high-speed (6 megabyte) internet & Wi-Fi & 42' cable TV. Reserved off-street parking. Complementary use of 3 bikes for our guests, or simply stroll to the beach bus only a half-block away! The orientation of our three vacation rentals make this a perfect spot for a group of friends of vacationing families who want to be together during their vacation, or celebrate a wedding or graduation. A very friendly place!
This property was rented for my (very large) extended family who needed a place to stay for my wedding. I/my whole family was SO pleased with the place... it's spacious, well-kept, and really, really lovely (with beautiful outdoor space to boot!). James, the owner, was very helpful and always available... he made sure to check in with me once my family had arrived to make sure that everyone had settled in well.
Our large party of 10 had plenty of space for togetherness and private time! Lots of space and a beautiful backyard! Thank you!
Spectacular compound for fun family reunions/wedding My son was just married in Santa Monica the property afforded us an opportunity to all be together we wouldn't have had otherwise Very comfortable close to beach and bicycles to get you there Parking is sometimes difficult as is backing out of drive
We rented this unit as well as the one above for a family wedding and I can not imagine having found a more perfect spot. The house itself is wonderful, the location is terrific-easy access to everything. The houses were well stocked, super clean and comfortable, the owner was wonderful, especially through some complicated arrangements in the beginning...can't wait to stay here again and can not reccommend it highly enough!!
We rented Beethoven Retreat and Beethoven Hideaway for a family reunion over a long week-end. We found the location fantastic and the apartments both spacious and very comfortable. We had a dinner one night for 9 and the kitchen was very well equipped for this type of gathering. James provided lots of great information about the local area including restaurants and shopping. We very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to others.
We came into town for my brother's beach wedding in Santa Monica. This was the perfect place to stay. We had 4 families sharing the Beethoven Trio. It worked out so well. We were able to have some privacy yet spend a lot of time together for meals, coffee time in the large living room and dining room. Everything was very clean. We felt like we were at home (comfortable and quiet) verses a hotel. Would definitely stay here again. We explored Santa Monica and Venice - beautiful! Wish we could have stayed longer.
The World-famous Venice Canals are just 5 minutes away by car. Abbott Kinney boutique, restaurant and shopping districts is also 5 minutes away while the great Santa Monica Promenade is 10 minutes, with traffic. And of course there's the fabulous VENICE BEACH just down our street, adjacent to SANTA MONICA BEACH. For eating out, the area is superb, with over 20 excellent restaurants and cafes within walking distance of our front door.
