Description of the Santa Monica vacation home rental
OUR HOME: Our fully furnished and richly decorated 2-bedroom, 1 bathroom 'Beethoven's Hideaway' crowns the top of an historic California Craftsman duplex -- a 1000 square-foot treasure situated only minutes from the ocean (right down our cross street). The private private offers a distant view of the silver-blue Santa Monica Bay and Mountains -- and you can pick lemons right off our lemon tree from the deck! The apartment is filled with Italian art and has
recently been exquisitely renovated with a respect for historical detail. It features new hardwood floors, Persian carpets, new furniture and fixtures. The apartment also offers central air conditioning available for an additional $10/day.

The large and airy master bedroom features casement windows (morning light) and a walk-in closet, reading nook and cedar linen chest. The equally large and sunny second bedroom, which can also be used as an office, includes a writing desk facing the casement windows (afternoon light) with a view of the neighborhood, and a beautiful studio upright piano in excellent condition (ideal for musicians).

Our cozy den features a new reclining armchair and sofa that can pull out to an additional guest bed, along with a widescreen hi-def television complete with DirecTV premium channels, DVD player, and a 5-CD stereo.

French doors in the den open to a spacious outside patio deck with a distant view of the mountains and ocean. The deck overlooks a charming backyard (lit by lanterns at night) that is home to our lemon and orange treesand framed by bougainvillea, a trickling fountain and an herb garden.

Laundry facilities are in a separate backyard cabin and are shared with the downstairs tenants. Entrance to the apartment is via a private stairway off the backyard.

OUR BACKYARD: The HIdeaway overlooks our bougainvillea and beautifully green and flowering backyard gardens with Italian fountains and fruit trees (a real hit with the hummingbirds!). After a day of sightseeing you can relax on the upper deck, 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 as COMPLIMENTARY BIKES to ride to the ocean or explore the neighborhood and 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.
