Description of the Santa Monica vacation home rental
OUR HOME: Our fully furnished 2-bdr, 2-bath 'Beethoven's Retreat' vacation rental accommodates up to 7 guests and is the ideal vacation home for a corporate traveller, couple, family or business group. This 1300 sq-ft gem has been a 'top pick' on several vacation rental websites and is decorated with an eye for historical detail, with hardwood floors throughout. Situated on the lower floor of our historic California Craftsman duplex, its airy layout features 2 large bedrooms (one with skylights & loft), each with their own beautifully tiled bathroom (main bath has a Jacuzzi tub) and plenty of closet space. High-speed internet (6 megabyte speed!) with Wi-Fi and premium cable TV with a 42-inch screen are included. The home also has central heating and air conditioning. Our large living room leads into our adjoining dining room (seats up to 8) and to a full sunny kitchen with all amenities (stove-top range, broiler, microwave, large refrigerator, dishwasher, disposal, and breakfast table) looking out onto our backyard garden with lemon and orange trees.

OUR BACKYARD: The Retreat has its own terra-cotta patio framed by colorful bougainvillea and our beautifully green and flowering backyard gardens with fountains and fruit trees (a real hit with the hummingbirds!). After a day of sightseeing you can relax on the back patio, pick a few lemons from our tress and make our own 'secret recipe' lemonade for a delicious salute to your day. Or, rustle up dinner on our charcoal barbecue, with all supplies provided. We also offer a laundry cabina in the backyard, with washer and dryer and complementary detergent and softener.

OUR NEIGHBORHOOD: Our lovely street and neighborhood is far less congested and noisy than properties right on the beach -- and you don't have to spend 20 minutes hunting for a space to park (as you do by the beach) -- WE OFFER FREE RESERVED OFF-STREET PARKING as well asCOMPLIMENTARY BIKES to ride to the ocean or explore the neighborhood. The BUS TO THE BEACH stops right at the corner, just steps from your door.

We are just minutes from Venice and Santa Monica Beaches and the famous Venice Canals, which are directly down our street. Venice Beach is a 20 minute walk, 10 minutes by bike. Cinemas, cares, shopping and freeways all within 5 minutes. The Santa Monica Pier and Promenade is only 9 minutes by car.
