Santa Monica Canyon Cabin
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

very relaxing - down to earth and enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

i would very highly recommend Ron & Kate's rental property. I come to LA quite a bit on business - and this is by far my favorite place to stay. It's close to santa monica , but far enough away that you can escape the hustle and bustle when you come home in the evenings. My wife and infant daughter came and really enjoyed it as well. Its a rare gem, and the hosts Ron & Kate are extremely accommodating. (They even covered our baby stroller when we left it out at night - they knew it was going to rain and we were unaware) -Dan

Charming, relaxing, away from the bustle

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cabin. It gets natural light, was built in the 40's and is mostly wood. The owners have kept it looking that period. They have toys for the kids, books for the adults, and a gas fireplace for winter. The kitchen is fairly well stocked and they kindly provided tea, honey, half and half, and coffee.

It sits on a steep hill. You can reach it from the street above or below but parking is really only found on the upper street. Be prepared for over 60 steps!

The neighborhood is posh. Tucked in between the mansions are small bungalows built many years ago and they are far more charming.

It is a quick drive both to the ocean and pacific palisades.

The owners were prompt in contacting us.

We will be back!

Great place as a contrast to the intensity of LA.

Wonderful small house contained within a dense forest in Santa Monica Canyon. Be aware of the 69 steps up to house.

Wonderful cabin moments away from the beach!

The cabin was absolutely perfect! Cozy and quaint, and tucked away in a safe, quiet neighborhood. I stayed for several days while attending a conference at the Annenberg Community Beach House and the location worked out really well. I had hoped to walk, though there wasn't a walkway along PCH, though it was a short drive from the house. I requested to extend my stay by another day, and the owner's were incredibly accommodating - and even sent me my computer charger which I had left behind. I highly recommend this spot!

SM Canyon aerie...

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

This cute, comfortable and quaint nest up a side road off Entrada Drive is a pleasant, amply furnished dwelling place for a traveling couple. It has easy access to Santa Monica and Brentwood shops and restaurants and is quiet and restful, surrounded by trees and within sound of the surf beyond Pacific Coast Hiway less than a mile away. It has the charm and feel of an older Craftsman-style cabin but with a comfortable bed, sturdy furniture, hdtv and wifi, and a kitchen in which everything works. Your host is a gracious lady and we had a very pleasant stay.

A couple of caveats: access is by 75 steps with no railings. Wrangling your bags will be tough if you're not as strong as you used to be. No parking is provided so you take whatever parking you can find on the street below, much of which is red zoned.
