2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
Santa Monica, California
BOOK 2 OR MORE NIGHTS IN NOVEMBER OR DECEMBER 2016 AND WE'LL TAKE $20 OFF THE NIGHTLY RATE!
Our fully furnished and richly decorated 2-bedroom home is ideal as a vacation hideaway or a relaxing retreat if you plan to stay longer. Crowning the top of a California Craftsman duplex, this 1,000-square foot treasure is situated only one mile from the ocean, with a patio that offers a distant view of the beautiful Santa Monica Bay and Mountains. We're on a treed residential street that offers mountain views from our patio deck, and top-flight restaurants, cinemas and antique shops are only 2 minutes away. If you drive down our cross street (passing a very convenient Costco and a Vons supermarket) you'll arrive at the fabulous beaches of Santa Monica and Venice in only 4-5 minutes.

Bright, clean and inviting, the apartment has recen...

We really lucked out this time. We could not have found a more helpful and charming host nor cosier and more well situated accommodation. Beethoven's Hideaway does feel like a retreat from the big city but is also perfectly placed to explore all LA has to offer. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen well - appointed and there's lots of hot water - a must with two adults and two children. Right round the corner...

We’ve written many reviews for wonderful homes we’ve stayed in on VRBO both in America and Europe. But Beethoven’s Hideaway is now at the top of our list — what a charming, inviting spot this is! The boys loved the bikes and lemon trees while the old parents unwound every day on the spacious outdoor patio right off the den.

As a family of four (2 kids 8 and 11), we have had a great week in James' "Beethoven Hideway". When they were available (you have to share with the other people staying in the ground floor apartment), we used the bikes to go and to ride a long the beach which is a must. We also biked to the Santa Monica shopping area (3rd street promenade). Everything practical is available for a pleasant stay...
