We rented the facility for a large group function and the staff was great overall. They also catered in great food. Overall a great venue for a day at the beach!

Attended a wedding at Sunset on the beach. The location was excellent and the house was beautiful. The back of the house has a porch which was used for the wedding and the stairs on each side to hold the bride and grooms close friends and family. Could not have been more perfect/

It's a great place - seems like a private beach - beautiful pool for children and adults alike. Can spend the day there - visit The Marion Davies former home - William Randolph Hurst gave it to her. She had many famous visitors who spent time there. A little café is near the pool for burgers, salads etc. Wonderful, clean... More

Love this community beach club. Great food, a pool, rentals, dining on the beach while the kiddies play on the playground? Family bliss. Parking can be tough on popular days like weekends and holidays, so get there early. In the summer swim reservations are a must. Or just bring your picnic basket and head to the waves. Great for younger... More

My kid loves this place he had so much fun. We have a pool in my condo complex but it is still fun too pack a lunch and have a fun day at the pool with other social people. I like that it is upscale but not snooty.

I took my son to the Beach House on a Sunday and we both loved it! I reserved parking ahead of time. I definately recommend! It was easy to reserve the parking spot and pool passes online. When we got there they moved some cones for us and we got front row parking right next to the buliding which was... More

This is a wonderful setting, just beyond the California Incline and walking distance to the Santa Monica Pier, with a very pleasant and attentive staff, and very tasty catered food service.

A very unique location to spend time on Santa Monica Beach. It is an entire complex which consists of a cafe, art center, community pool and historic house that you can tour. Call before coming to see what's open. Pool is beautiful. It is a community pool. Cafe is perfect for a lunch. Right on beach. Check when tours are... More

Spending a day at a Santa Monica beach doesn't have to be daunting! This is the place to park your car and your party. Although we didn't use many of the amenities offered here, it was so nice to have a "paved" path to the shoreline with reasonable beach chair rentals at the ready. As a very family friendly area,...

This glass beach house, open to the public, is a beautiful venue for cultural events. I recently attended a Red Hen Press sponsored free poetry reading featuring Garett Hongo on a Thursday night. You need to call to reserve parking for events as parking is limited. There is a casual beach cafe on site where you can get wine and... More
