“Tropical oasis near the beach in Pacific Palisades”

5 of 5 starsReviewed April 14, 2015 Michelle New York

What a pleasant stay we had at this home! We were traveling with 3 pre-teens , 2 parents and a grandparent and we all really enjoyed our stay. This rental is just above the beach in Pacific Palisades.. So the location is perfect for sitting on the beach, going to the Santa Monica Pier or heading up the coast to see the beautiful coastline. We traveled all over LA during this visit and we found this location to be a convenient base for exploring everywhere.

The backyard of this home is a beautiful tropical oasis with a lovely pool, large outdoor dining area and BBQ/ bar area. There are plenty of lounge chairs around the pool. What a relaxing way to spend the day after a busy day of sightseeing among all the crowds of LA!!

Wifi works great throughout the house and outdoor areas. There are 3 nice size bedrooms all with large TVs with premium stations. The beds were quite comfortable.

The kitchen is well equipped with a kitchen bar area and large dining table .

This home is spacious and has two indoor living rooms in addition to the outdoor living area.

Mrs. Palmer and her daughter Tracy were very nice people to deal with and our rental went perfectly. Tracy was always available by text and Mrs. Palmer is close by. When we return to Los Angeles we will definitely stay at their home again and I highly recommend it to other travelers to the area.

1. Tracey and Hilary were perfect hosts, very considerate and attentive to make my stay comfortable and pleasant. Tracey organized many activities for me and my kids, horse riding, surfing, football. I booked a massage with her on the patio which was very good and relaxing. Everything was just like the pictures and the house, patio and pool was beautiful. The location is great, central to everything for sightseeing Los Angeles. I highly recommend staying at this house and I will book it again next time I come to LA. NADEGE (LONDON, UK)

2. The house is a paradise to live in, the pool and patio are an invitation to relax. The house offers all comforts to spend a very good time, it is ideally located in a residential area very near the ocean, and there is a shopping within 2 kms of good qualities.

Santa Monica and Malibu are nearby.

Tracey and her mother are very kind, and advise you about local restaurants and activities. My family and myself had a great time at Tropical Paradise ...GREG (PARIS, FRANCE)

This is a sophisticated designer home with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in the much coveted Pacific Palisades, where many celebrities live.

The interior of the house is spacious and bright but the “Piece de Resistance” of the property is the exotic resort style patio and swimming pool area which has been designed to create a magical retreat.

Double French doors lead onto the patio from the kitchen and dining area and master bedroom.

The pool patio is a tropical paradise, a private romantic oasis with a “spa like” ambience, totally secluded by lush tropical plants, graced with pretty arbors, dramatic Roman columns, life-sized bronze statues all framing the backdrop for the swimming pool.

The patio features French terra-cotta pavers, a luxurious outdoor seating area, comfortable sun loungers, plus there is an outdoor elliptical exercise machine to keep up with your fitness programs.

There is also a custom built-in Tiki-style cocktail bar with wine cooler, plus a fully equipped outdoor kitchen in Mexican tiles with induction stove tops, convection oven, and top of the line built in BBQ.

The over-sized tiled dining table offers al fresco dining under the shade of the hot midday sun or under star-lit nights.

Alongside this dining table is a hand painted mural of the coastline of Spain which adds to the ambience.

A sophisticated lighting system enhances the entire patio at night creating a very romantic feeling. It is a paradise oasis by night as well as by day.

Interior of the House

The property is full of architectural features, custom built details in top quality materials, and the finest of finished carpentry work. It has has been rebuilt with lavish details such as carved French cornices.

The center piece of the living room is a stunning fireplace, a replica from a French castle, handcrafted on site, articulated with built-in recessed lighting.

Dramatic ceiling to floor windows surround the living room, den, and dining area and bathe all rooms with sunlight giving an uplifting feel throughout the house. All windows are UV filtered and all are double paned for very quiet and serene living inside.

The home has wood floors throughout, central heating and AC, and a security system.

In the den area there is a baby grand electric piano, a flat screen TV and 2 a comfortable seating area with a couch that a 10th person could sleep on.

The spacious living room features a designer semi-circular sectional sofa which seats eight people with a large mahogany hexagonal coffee table and a selection of antique chairs and buffets. The interior dining table seats 8 and overlooks the pool patio.

The designer kitchen was hand carved on site with Gothic pillars and steeple topped cabinets, all highlighted by strategically placed recessed lighting. The lower and full sized cabinets pull out on gliders for easy access. The kitchen features granite counter tops, a solid wood center island, a Viking professional stove with 4 burners, and a stainless steel hood, a warming drawer. In addition there are 2 easy-to-clean electric induction stove tops.

Triple French doors lead out onto the tropical patio and these doors can fold right back for indoor/outdoor California living.

Bedrooms all have bathrooms and flat screen TVs with satellite connection.

Master bedroom 1 with bathroom en suite overlooks the swimming pool with French doors leading out on to the patio. It has a four poster queen sized bed with a wrought Iron canopy and ample closet space. The master en suite bathroom is in ceiling to floor stone featuring a luxurious jacuzzi jet bath tub, large separate glass shower stall and an antique style vanity.

Master bedroom 2 is entered through hand carved antique Indian double doors. It has an large built-in flat screen TV, and Queen size 4 poster bed and a full size pull out couch bed. The en-suite bathroom features a limestone Roman bath and shower, and has a magnificent double vanity.

Bedroom 3 has a luxurious queen bed, wall to wall mirrored closets and double French doors leading to outside. There is a third bathroom with shower stall to serve this bedroom.

We also have a twin blow up mattress that can be set up anywhere.

The house is walking distance to The Lake shrine Meditation Center’s beautiful lake and gardens which inhabits swans, ducks, and turtles and provides a perfect atmosphere for the numerous meditation areas all around this magnificently picturesque lake. A walk around the grounds is an uniquely spiritual and tranquil experience.

The house and the tropical paradise pool patio is yours with a lockable gate from the driveway, the separate and totally private guesthouse which is surrounded by 6' 3" high fence and its own separate lockable gate, on the property is occupied by the owner in between guesthouse rentals to only quiet, respectful people. Only the driveway is shared. No one from the guesthouse can see the main house pool nor patio.

There is 1 off street parking with the house and street parking outside the house.

We provide fast wifi, a mac desktop computer, cable TV with many sports and movie channels, bathroom and pool towels, toiletries including toilet paper, a hairdryer in all the bathrooms, all bed linens, an iron and ironing board, and the kitchen is fully equipped including a water filter, dish towels, dish soap, trash bags, dish washer soap, laundry soap.

As the owners of this property we are totally dedicated to making your stay as enjoyable and as happy an experience as possible. If there is anything you need we will do our very best to accommodate you. We are always available by phone and text and live minutes away should you need us to come over.

We offer a concierge service and can book your entertainment and chef, chauffeur, cleaning service etc. And can also give you information to book your own entertainment, sports and fitness programs, swimming lessons in our pool for children, yoga classes at a local yoga studio, meditation classes at the Lake Shrine, local horse riding lessons and trails at Will Rogers Park, surfing lessons, kayaking, paddle boarding, and sailing.

I am a certified massage therapist and you can book an in-house massage with me. I also can organize at the house: private yoga lessons, Reiki healing, chakra sound balancing, spray tans, nails and facials.

The pool and patio areas are well maintained by a gardener and pool man and if you want a house cleaning service, we can organize this for you on request.

About Tracey Palmer

I am helping my mom rent out her house. We are originally from Northern Ireland and have lived in California for almost 20 years. She lives on the property in a totally separate guesthouse.

Tracey Palmer purchased this house in 2004

Why Tracey Palmer chose Pacific Palisades

My mum bought this property for its convenient location to everything, very close to the beach (Just a few minutes) and right on the border with Santa Monica and Malibu and close to drive to Beverly Hills and Hollywood.

What makes this house unique

My Mum has created a tranquil relaxing tropical paradise patio that makes lounging by the pool feel like you're on vacation on a tropical island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just came back from a wonderful 8-day stay with our family at Tracey and Hilary's home in Pacific Palisades. The house is very comfortable, with a lot of space and light everywhere - and interesting decoration! - while the outdoor patio and pool are an absolute mini paradise. Its location was also perfect for a family holiday as the ocean is a 2-min drive away and many great neighborhoods are close-by (by LA standards of course!). Tracey and her mum welcomed us with many good tips about bars and restaurants in the area and were very helpful with any questions or problems we encoutered in the house. We all enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back!

Clyde Hill,

Very spacious, great location, perfect for family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 enjoyed the stay at this house. There were plenty of room to spread out. There are art and antiques throughout house. There is even an electric piano and guitar. The two master bedrooms with bathroom are a big plus. Tracey is very responsive to our questions and needs. There was an issue with kitchen faucet and the plumber came on the same day and was in and out in less than 5 minutes! Great service. The beds were very comfortable and kitchen is well stocked with everything we need. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Fantastic !! It was everything and more. We took our kids there for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The place is huge and beautiful, clean, supplied with everything you need. From Towels for the pool and accessories for the beach. Seasonings extra food in the pantry ect. very centrally located to store, beaches, freeway, airport. The pictures do this place no justice. we would all come back again. at the last minute we asked Tracy if we could stay another night and if we could order the fight on TV. Mayweather / Mc Gregor and she was cool with that.

Highly recommend her place, you wont regret it.

Beautiful and relaxing house in Pacific Palisades

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I highly recommend this house to anyone looking to have a relaxing and peaceful vacation. The location of the house is perfect with it being close to Malibu, Santa Monica as well Hollywood and Beverly Hills. The house itself is extremely well furnished and has everything required. The pool/patio/BBQ area is beautifully laid out with plenty of places to relax and chill out and is very private. Our children loved the placed and are already asking us if we can return again. Tracey is a great host and is very helpful, you can contact her easily if there is anything you require. On our last day we had a personal medical emergency and Tracey went out of her way to help us deal with the situation, we were extremely grateful for her support and kindness.

Without any hesitation I would highly recommend this house.
