About Deb 310-913-1601

I raised my 3 children in this home, so there is warmth and happy, positive energy within and around. I am a registered nurse, artist, outdoors woman, gardener, traveler, reader, athlete, music lover, love to laugh and enjoy life with myself and friends/ family.

Deb 310-913-1601 purchased this estate in 1991

Why Deb 310-913-1601 chose Los Angeles

This property was originally built in the 1920's and continues to praise the Original Spanish style, yet delights in the newer, more open and modern living spaces. Hand crafted over the years with love and fun. This home has 3 private bedrooms and a den/office that has a chaise lounge that will convert to another queen sized bed. 2 full bathrooms, one with an all natural rock, rain and steam shower, and the master with a jacuzzi tub/shower.

There is separate, private fully equipped poolhouse adjacent the pool that is not included in this offer but could be. I usually stay there when I am in town or not in my other space in Malibu to maintain the property. I do not rent this out when I have guests in the house

What makes this estate unique

This property is private and enclosed with a privacy fence. Pool area, pool house and back yard, private patio w/ luxurious patio furniture, hand crafted fire pit and gas BBQ all for your personal private use. It's nicer than a cabana at the RITZ!!! It's a a slice of heaven for relaxing, playing and gathering with family/friends/collegues. Enjoy the ocean breeze, ride some bikes, jump on the oversized, soak up sun and listen to music, play in the pool and chill in the jacuzzi.

The pool is outdoor and utilizes ionized water and is also solar heated. The jacuzzi is simply delicious and a must in the winter.

The property is just south of the infamous Montana Ave and close to unique boutiques, yummy restaurants, libraries,the Ocean, and the city of Brentwood/UCLA.

There are bicycles and a scooter to get around town with, A large enclosed trampoline to practice your flips or just play on

Such a great vacation at a fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time in Santa Monica and this house definitely made the trip extra special for us. It is a great house and the hosts are very warm, easy to work with and accommodating. The location is perfect and the house was perfect for my family. My kids loved the pool and the trampoline and the house itself was nice and open and gave us lots of room to be comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

Everything we needed

  • 4 of 5

This spacious,comfortable house just off Montana in Santa Monica had everything we needed. Although the location is further north than we are used to, we found it a very nice neighbourhood. We did need to take the car to do any shopping etc as the 10+ blocks from the top of Montana were just too far to walk if carrying anything heavy (I tried it!)

The owner, Deb Hak, was welcoming and helpful throughout our 2 week stay and stayed in a little pool house in the garden of the property. The other resident was a lovely tabby cat called Petie-Max!

The swimming pool was wonderful - large and solar heated - and was a godsend in the unexpected heatwave we experienced in September. There was also a lovely hot tub and plenty of seating in the garden.

The 3 bedrooms had comfortable beds and large storage cupboards for clothes and suitcases etc.The 2 secondary bedrooms had ceiling fans which were necessary in the heat as the house is not air-conditioned. The kitchen was well equipped and Deb kindly told us to use everything and anything we needed.There is a comfortable sitting room with a huge TV and a big dining table for eating/entertaining friends. Provision of a

cleaner was an $80 option. A pool man and gardener each came once a week.

It is altogether a perfect family house in which to spend a holiday.

BEST Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Traveling with kids is never easy (try getting out the front door without forgetting something!) but traveling with special needs children is even more challenging. After a long day of flying and two hungry kids we arrived and were met with the friendliest smile and warm welcome which we all needed! The home that was clean, comfortable and full of all the things we needed right away! Our 10 day stay was nothing short of wonderful and our kids have been asking to go back since we left! The bedrooms are comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need to make all your meals, there are plenty of spaces in the house to relax, there are amazing restaurants within walking distance if you don't feel like cooking but the pool, trampoline and bikes make this heaven for families with children. The owner is wonderful, beyond accommodating and will provide you with anything you need/want that isn't already there. We plan on returning very soon for another extended stay and would recommend this house to anyone really looking for a relaxing vacation! The house is close to shopping, dining, the beach and almost all of the most popular tourist attraction in LA. Book your trip, pack your bags and go! It is well worth it!

Me and my family just got back from staying at this incredible home in Santa Monica. From the moment we arrived our trip was nothing short of magical. This home was everything I had hoped for and more. The rooms were clean and the beds really comfy. The house comes with everything u can think of for comfort and fun. She even had games and books that kept the kids entertained when they weren't in her beautiful pool or jacuzzi. She has a huge trampoline and an amazing garden and patio. Not to mention the fire Pitt where we roasted marshmallows at night. The house was centrally located to everything. Debbi the owner was available when we had any questions. She even gave us great local ideas and provided maps and tools we needed for our activities. There is a beautiful park nearby and we loved the quiet neighborhood. No matter what our plans were, everything was just a short ride away. I will never forget this dream vacation or Debbi's kindness. If u want to want the experience of a lifetime this is the house for u !! We can't wait to go back and do it again...

Perfect Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family was lucky enough to stay in this amazing house for 2 weeks in January. I really can't say enough about the entire experience. The house is fantastic - it has everything you could want, from comfy beds and pillows to great towels to plenty of hang out space and a fully stocked kitchen for cooking or dishing out take out! The property is really beautiful and the location is superb. You can walk to Wilshire and find great restaurants, or to Montana and shop, or ride bikes to the beach, or jog safely in all the surrounding streets. It's peaceful, secure and yet close to everything you want to do. The owner is available for any and all requests, but there really was nothing to request - she'd already thought of everything. I've stayed in other Santa Monica rentals with my family, but this surpassed all expectations. I'm very thankful for the time I spent here :)

The winter rate is for the home without the usage of the pool and jacuzzi. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CALL ME AT 3109131601 WITH ANY QUESTIONS. I recommend communicating PRIOR TO BOOKING SO WE BOTH CAN BE HAPPY. The city of Santa Monica does only allows home sharing License # 216122. I want my vacationers to be happy, so will always appreciate a conversation PRIOR to booking! I can work with the pricing and it is possible to rent just one or 2 bedrooms. Feel free to call and we can talk about what works for your situation. Also encourage Google mapping the property to see if the location is great for your wants. Property is convenient for family fun/enjoying all of Santa Monica, Brentwood, Westwood, Venice, Malibu, Universal Studios, Downtown LA, Hollywood, Disneyland, Knottsberry Farm, Big Bear Ski , Nature Hikes. Holidays are in high demand and thus more expensive. Also I DO NOT heat the entire pool in the winter...The jacuzzi heats,can get very hot and is very large... but the pool is toooo large and requires too much energy. Thanks for your understanding
