This private one-bedroom, one-bath guest suite with it's own entrance is an easy walk to State Beach, Palisades Park, the Promenade and great restaurants. Walk, cycle or scoot via the beach path or Ocean Avenue to the Pier or Venice.

The space
This clean, uncluttered, and private one-bedroom guest suite, suitable for one or two guests, also has a sitting area, breakfast bar area and bath. Furnished in mid-century modern, it has wireless internet, Italian tile floors, bamboo cabinets, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, blender, coffeemaker and a two burners, but no stove. You can do limited cooking if you need to. The suite features a queen-sized bed with a firm 14" memory foam mattress. The separate entrance and windows with between-the-glass pleated shades give guests total privacy. Beach towels are provided as is a steamer and a small travel iron for business travelers and wedding guests.

Guest access
There is an adjacent covered patio available to guests; however, the stairs, deck and steep hillside behind the house is off limits. To enjoy the gorgeous ocean views, take one of two public staircases to Adelaide Drive or walk to Palisades Park. A laundry room is available for guests staying longer than a week to do one load of laundry. Please ask if you need to use it. There is no smoking anywhere on the premises, inside or outdoors.

Other things to note
The area is a mecca for exercisers. Sometimes during the day parking can be impacted, but they come and go, so there is always parking available, just drive around the block. If you arrive after 4 pm, which is the official check-in time, you will find parking easily. Earlier than that, you are on your own. Do not arrive between 2:00 and 3:15 on a weekday as parking is always difficult. At night you can always park in front of the house because the street is quiet and empty. Beach access is via two tunnels that go under PCH or the pedestrian bridge in Palisades Park at Montana Avenue. Do not run across PCH!
I don't have a TV as I don't watch it myself. Most of my guests are actively out and about. This is not the place for you if you need to watch TV during your stay.

Fyi Airbnb is now collecting from all guests the 14% Transient Occupancy Tax required by the city. I'm sorry if it has made my listing more expensive, but I have no say in it whatsoever. In addition with the new City of Los Angeles regulations that went into effect November 1, 2019, there will be additional fees (taxes).

Also note that the City of Santa Monica has extensive no smoking regulations:
In Santa Monica, smoking is prohibited in the following areas:
• Within 20 feet of entryways and windows of any buildings open to the public
• In any outdoor dining areas
• At any local beach, park or Farmers' Markets
• On the Santa Monica Pier
• At the Third Street Promenade and public libraries, including grounds
• At any bus stops, ATM lines or other service areas
About my cancellation policy: Although it is "strict" it is my personal policy to offer a refund for any days that I am able to re-book. However, I have no control over the Airbnb fees.

Location

Pacific Palisades, California, United States

Santa Monica Canyon was once a bohemian enclave by the sea. There is a website called "In the Canyon" that gives more information about the neighborhood. It is convenient to all the attractions of Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, and Venice: Montana Avenue, both Gettys, Malibu and the incredible hiking trails of the Santa Monica Mountains. Give the Santa Monica stairs a try, and walk or jog along the most beautiful street in Santa Monica, Adelaide Drive, to Palisades Park. Walk to beautiful little hidden Rustic Canyon Park. Some of the restaurants and bars located within a ten minute walk are Patrick's Roadhouse, Giorgio Baldi, Caffe Delfini, The Golden Bull, Tullula's, Shore Bar and Back on the Beach. Some of these (Giorgio Baldi, Patrick's) are celebrity magnets. I always recommend Tallula's for hipster deliciousness and Back on the Beach for its beachfront ambiance.
