About the area

A quiet residential neighborhood, only 8 blocks to Main Street with its trendy restaurants, cafes and boutiques. We are also 10 blocks to the beach with its 22 Mike bike/walk path. We also a short walk to Downtown Santa Monica with its famous Pier and Third Street Promenade. In the other direction, we also about a mile to Venice Beach including the Venice Boardwalk and the popular Abbot Kinney known for its Bohemian vibe.

Getting around

Walking is easy and we are a block away from bike rentals and buses. However, since Los Angeles is so vast, a car is recommended.

Getting here

Interaction with guest

We live around the corner so are available for any questions or concerns you may have throughout your stay. The Loft House is completely private so you can enjoy the comfort and serenity of having your own retreat with the added confidence that assistance is only a call, email or text away!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Wonderful Time!

My stay with my 18 year old son was fantastic! The owner, Deborah, met us at the Loft within 5 minutes of us calling her to run through the house and was so pleasant and offered many tips. She was very easy to communicate with prior to the trip. The first thing we did was sit on the lovely balcony and enjoyed the California sun! The house was very comfortable and the neighborhood quiet. We didn't use the kitchen much except for coffee in the morning so the coffee maker and coffee in the pantry was welcome! The beds were very comfortable and the light that comes in the house was so nice. Each window was able to open and let in the beautiful air or pull a shade down. The living room was comfortable and cozy. The garage was ideal to pull in and close the door behind you and have your own privacy right up to the front door! The location was very ideal; close to LA, the 3rd St. Promenade, Malibu, Venice, etc. We wish we could have stayed longer and did not want to leave! Thank you for a lovely stay!

Great Apartment in Great Location

This is a great apartment in a great location. It is very clean, modern and tastefully furnished. The windows and high ceiling give a great feeling of space. We particularly liked the upstairs deck which is small but more than adequate for 2 people and also very private. Deborah was a great host. Beforehand she answered all emails promptly. When we arrived she came around to welcome us and to leave her cell no after that we didn't see her but knew she was available if needed. This was our third visit to Santa Monica. On the previous occasions we stayed in hotels but we definitely preferred staying in the Lofthouse. The walk to the beach is a bit of a hike but it's through nice residential streets. I would definitely recommend the Lofthouse and hope to return on our next visit.

No More Hotels for Me!

This was my first time doing an overseas holiday rental. I was advised by my travel agent against organising an apartment. After my experience with my latest trip, not sure if I would use hotels again! It's great if you have children (needing a washing machine) or want to experience more of the local lifestyle. I highly recommend the loft apartment in Santa Monica.

Deborah was fantastic with her continual communication, putting my mind at ease, that I had made the right decision hiring the loft. The property was very clean with lots of towels available. We had full use of garage for rental car, beach chairs and very short walk for your day-to-day items and tasty pho shop, if you wanted a cheap quick meal.

It is walking distance to the beach and little further, down the beach is Santa Monica pier. We also did a day trip to Malibu, with the hire car. My only negative would be stay longer than 3 nights. Its such a beautiful part of the world. Thanks Deborah for an amazing experience.

We Chose Wisely

When we decided to stay in Santa Monica we quickly realised that a hotel for a family of four was not only expensive but also inadequate in terms of space. After looking around we saw the Loft House and were sold by the pictures, reviews and value. Fortunately for us the reality was exactly as we had expected. We arrived Friday afternoon and pulled up in front of the property. Our instructions were clear and we used the lock box to enter the house and open the remote garage. What a luxury this is. Each time we pulled up the electric door opened and in we drove. It makes arrival very private plus there are washing and drying facilities in there. The property itself was great. There were no surprises from the pictures other than it felt larger particularly the bedrooms and upstairs roof terrace which we enjoyed looking out from. We always had the terrace door open and often the front door as well because the entrance is screened and secured with good fencing. We appreciated the basics being provided such as dishwasher tablets and coffee filters and whilst we didn't cook facilities were very good and there is a huge fridge. Deborah (the owner) left us lots of information on places to eat and called in to welcome us. There is good wifi included too.Overall we struck lucky with this property.Iit is about 15 minutes walk from the sea front and has a great Haggens at the end of the road. Our stay was for 5 nights and when we came to move onto to Palm Springs we can honestly say we were gutted. Space, comfort, cleanliness and security - what more could we ask for

Fantastic Santa Monica, CA loft

Pictures and review comments are accurate. The Santa Monica Loft is great. Close to all, quite neighborhood, access to garage. Kitchen is complete with all accessories and is spotless, as is the bathroom. Host is very responsive to e-mail and makes the entire process stress free. Would stay here again.

Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer :)

This was our first experience renting a home instead of staying in a hotel. It was well worth it!

First off, Hats off to the Owners!! I can't say enough about them! Deborah was the perfect host. She was there to make sure we were Happy! She made us feel that this was our home, & if we needed anything we knew we could call her for assistance.

The home itself was beyond gorgeous, we just didn't want to leave! The pictures don't really do it justice. It was clean and so beautifully appointed. It was also stocked with so many amenities that I just didn't expect... it’s beautifully and stylishly decorated with a comfortable sofa, cozy cushions and rugs, and thoughtful decorative touches everywhere you look. It is clear that a lot of care and love has gone into the creation of this space, and you feel that it's important to the owners for the experience to be both special and at the same time for you to feel like you are at home. They certainly succeeded in that regard!

The home itself is situated in a beautiful, quiet, neighborhood , near the beach area and the Promenade with so many shops and restaurants close by. We walked quite a bit, day and evening, and it felt very safe.

We will definitely be back It really was an absolute delight to stay at this lovely townhouse, we just can't wait to return again! Sonya

I could never imagine staying anywhere more perfect in Santa Monica.

My wife and I and my adult daughter had a wonderful stay at the Loft House in Santa Monica in mid-December 2016. The Loft House is both beautiful and comfortable. It is close to the beach, restaurants and shopping in Santa Monica and Venice. We had a wonderful relaxing visit. Thanks for letting us enjoy the Loft House!

Fantastic Spacious home!
5 of 5 Stars

We spent 8 days here after a busy week in San Francisco. It was perfect. Very relaxing. It is a beautiful building with lots of love gone into it. We met Deborah on the first day, who is a very nice lady who gave us lots of information from supermarkets to concerts on the pier. We didn't have any reason to contact her for the rest of the week but we knew she was only a phone call away. We walked most evenings down to Main Street, Santa Monica Pier or 3rd St Promanade. All have so much to offer, really spoilt for choice. Then drove to the beach during the day with the excellent chairs and towels provided by Deborah. The washing machine was a god send with 2 teenage boys. We would definitly recommend this lovely home and would stay again if we ever go back to Santa Monica. Thanks Chris & Jo UK

Meeting our expectations
4 of 5 Stars

Our stay at the Lofthouse was really up to our expectations, which were quite high given the many positive reviews we had read. The house is very comfortable and really very well equipped. The neighbourhood is very nice, conveniently located and all services are within easy reach. The owner is really supportive and makes all necessary and even supplemental information available on arrival. The house is very airy and full of light and the terrace on the upper floor is really enjoyable. Those who have rather sleeping in the full dark may consider bringing eyemasks.

My family and I recently stayed at The Lofthouse for 9 days. The house ia an amazing duplex owned and operated by Deborah and her husband. The space was perfect for my wife and 15 yr old son and 9 yr old daughter. We'very stayed in Santa Monica and Venice Beach before and the location was perfect. Deborah is so nice and very accommodating. I only wished that we could have stayed longer. One things for certain we will definitely book this hidden gem on our next trips back to LA.

Lovely loft house

The loft house was ideal for our first stay in Santa Monica. It is a spacious, modern and beautifully decorated apartment. Deborah was a good host and always quick to respond to our emails and has a great knowledge of the local area and gave us good advice on nearby amenities. The loft house is situated in a quiet, friendly neighbourhood and is in walking distance to Santa Monica beach and pier. Staying at the Loft house made our vacation an enjoyable experience and we hope to return some day.

Loved our stay at the Loft House in Santa Monica. It was a great neighborhood for walking, and fabulous restaurants were just

minutes away. The amenities were perfect for the 3 of us and we especially loved the

deck off of the upstairs bedroom.

The Loft House was bright , clean and close to everything. Especially liked the two car garage, which is very hard to find in Santa Monica.

We had a great visit with our son and daughter-in-law.

It was difficult to leave and hope to come back again next spring or sooner.
