About our home

Our fully furnished, spacious luxury 2-bedroom "Beethoven's Retreat" accommodates up to 7 guests and is the ideal vacation home for a couple, a family or a group of business or vacation travelers. Situated on the ground floor of a California Craftsman duplex, this 1100 sq-ft gem is decorated with an eye for historical detail and has been newly painted and renovated with hardwood floors throughout. Its airy 1100 sq-ft 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. Free phone, high-speed internet (6 megabyte speed!) with Wi-Fi and premium cable TV with a 42-inch screen are included. Our large living room leads into out adjoining dining room (seats 6-8) 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. The Retreat has its own terra-cotta patio framed by colorful bougainvillea, a charcoal BBQ, and a shared laundry cabaña with washer and dryer.

We're just minutes from the ocean in beautiful Mar Vista, adjacent to Santa Monica, on a treed residential street, and top-flight restaurants, cinemas and antique shops are only 2 minutes away. Our cross street takes you past a very convenient Costco supermarket and shopping center & the famous Venice canals, to the fabulous beaches of Santa Monica and Venice. Bright, clean and inviting, the home has large front porch the complementary use of 2 bikes, perfect for exploring the nearby beaches.
