About the property

3 Bedrooms+ 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9

Gated, secure and quiet, this beautiful home is situated on a park-like half acre with mature trees and gardens. Walk to the village and beach or the waterfall hiking trails of Temescal Canyon State Park. Perfectly located just 5 minutes from Santa Monica or Malibu!

This single level home was featured in recent T Mobile, Pier 1, Wayfair Furniture and Burning Torch video and print advertisements.

This 3 bedroom, 3 bath home is light, open and airy with French doors, high ceilings and hardwood floors. It was recently remodeled with all quality finishes including a fully appointed gourmet kitchen with all stainless steel Viking and Thermador appliances, double convection oven, microwave, blender, coffee maker and Cuisinart. The dining room table seats 6. The breakfast nook in the kitchen also seats 6, or a large teak table outside is available for alfresco dining year round under a Hawaiian Coral tree. There are indoor and outdoor wood-burning gas fireplaces and an outdoor gas BBQ as well as a gas fire-pit for roasting s’mores!

The house sleeps 9 with a king bed in the master suite and 2 double beds in each of the two other bedrooms, plus a single bed and a couch. An extra single bed is available on request.

The house sits behind double security gates with a circular drive spacious enough to park 6 vehicles. There is an alarmed security system on all doors and windows.

The home includes a music room with a piano and guitar and a detached media room with a big screen TV. The media room also includes a PlayStation-Blu-ray-DVD player with DVD movies and games as well as a Korg electronic keyboard. There are 4 TV’s in the house including a 60 inch High Def 4K smart TV with free netflix in the living room, with cable and free WiFi throughout. An inkjet printer is available for use.

We also provide board games and puzzles. There is an Olympic-size swimming pool at Palisades High School that is open to the public for a small fee and offers lap swimming.

If you can pull yourself away from this retreat, you can walk or ride a bike to the famous white sand beaches just a mile from the house. The Santa Monica Pier and famous 3rd Street Promenade, with fine dining and up-scale shopping, are just 5 minutes away. The nightly Sunset into the Pacific Ocean is different every night and not to be missed from the famous El Medio Bluffs, a short 2 block walk away!

A short stroll to the charming village of Pacific Palisades will bring you to great markets, upscale shops and restaurants.

Serene Home, Fantastic Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our baby and found it a perfect place to relax. We were so comfortable we barely wanted to leave, although we forced ourselves to leave for some hiking in Temescal Canyon, a short walk away. Jeff was a great host and very responsive. We look forward to staying here again next time we are in LA.

A garden sanctuary in LA

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home with two families while visiting LA for a wedding. Gorgeous home and garden! Everything in the home is tastefully done - furniture, linens, decor, dishes. Very French country. Kids loved the big fenced garden, ping pong table, and grassy volleyball court. Thank you, Jeff!

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect fit for our wedding weekend. A relaxing and beautiful place to gather with friends and family. Easy street parking. Located conveniently near the beach, market and Santa Monica. The host Jeff was most welcoming and accommodating of our requests. Plenty of activities at the home for kids as well. We enjoyed the outdoor seating and grill. We couldn't have been happier with this home rental. Definitely recommend to others.

Beautiful, comfortable home in the Palisades

  • 5 of 5

Jeff and his home were both wonderful. Jeff was very responsive and met us in person to show us around the property. The house was well stocked and very well located - we went for hikes in Temescal Canyon several times during our stay and we were less than 5 minutes away from several grocery stores. The house was very comfortable for our group of 6 people, and we enjoyed a few ping pong tournaments as well as having breakfast outside on the patio.

Would definitely recommend this property to others!

Great Location, Charming Home

  • 5 of 5

Great Location, but felt secluded. Although close to Sunset Blvd., it was quite except for the occasional hummingbird. Perfect for families or couples. Only mile or so to the beach, easy access to Malibu or Los Angeles. Grocery stores, restaurants are all very close. The owner picked up his phone when we called for just a quick questions.

I CAN'T say enough how much my family enjoyed this beautiful home...it is just as the pictures show...VERY PRIVATE...VERY BEAUTIFUL...VERY CLEAN...a perfect home away from home for my family! The volley ball, the fire pit and the ping pong table were the favorites, and the home was big enough for us to eat around the table...and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook our meals...We WANT TO COME BACK!! THANK YOU!!
