Stunning Architectural Home by Golf Course

Santa Monica, California

Stunning architectural solar-powered home facing a golf course. Home was rebuilt from the ground up in 2006: open, light, modern, clean, with a gorgeous back garden. In Santa Monica, and literally on the border with Venice and hip Rose Ave. Across the street is a public golf course, providing a lovely green view, and is just a couple of blocks from a public park with tennis, basketball, sporting fields, and playground.

As the owner, I'm available if needed; I live in a duplex apartment adjoining the main rooms of the house. (* Being on-site is a requirement for short-term Santa Monica rentals. *) Its entrance is separate and fenced off.

The landscaping is low-water, sustainable, and is served by gardeners who come once each week. The grounds are tastefully lit at night.

The house is open and airy. There are three bedrooms, two downstairs which each have a sleeping loft, and the master bedroom upstairs, which floats above the living room -- it has one half wall, from which you can look down on the living room, though it’s shielded from view from below. The living room, kitchen, and dining room are open, so you can actually see all the way from the front door to the back yard.

The glass-enclosed dining room overlooking the backyard is perfect for breakfast, lunch, and formal dinner parties. The doors open all the way up to take advantage of living in such a great climate. A barbecue in the back allows for outdoor cooking. Retire after dinner to the gas-powered fire pit behind the house.

There's a nine-hole golf course across the street, a public park one block away (with tennis and basketball courts, children's play equipment and sand, and softball/baseball/soccer fields, all of which are lit for evening use, too). The beach is a 2 mile walk away. Close to Main St., the Third Street Promenade, Pier, and all Santa Monica and Los Angeles has to offer.

    As in other reviews, Dylan was quick to return all communications & was always helpful. His home is lovely (depicted accurately in the photos), & has space, space, space! It is extremely well-stocked (kitchen, bathrooms, linens). The fenced-in yard was excellent for relaxing, for having lunch with our cousins, & for our small dog. The neighborhood is lovely & serene - the golf course across the street lends to this. Important to me: Gelson's grocery store was a mile away & easily accessed. And what my husband enjoyed: the upstairs library for late evenings. Dylan has an amazing book collection, & we were privy to some very interesting info from his posters & artwork. Since we have friends & family in the area, we hope to return to Dylan's home.

    This property was perfect for a family Holiday. We brought our two dogs and the backyard was not only beautiful, but fenced in, so we were able to let them loose a bit. Only 5 of us stayed at the property but it was our gathering location and accommodated 11 for dinner very comfortably. We walked to both Venice beach and Santa Monica beach almost daily, great location. Its about a 35 minute walk. We would definitely choose this property to stay again if the opportunity arrises.

    Dylan was a fantastic host who made sure we not only had a wonderful stay, but was very communicative throughout, and emphasized the integrity of the space, which makes sense when you see how lovely and centrally located the neighborhood is.

    Dylan, who lives on the premises, in a separate attached unit with a private entrance, was very responsive on the few occasions we reached out with a question or observation. His home is spacious, airy, sunny, and has a large and lovely backyard. The refrigerator/freezer and pantry space is ample, and mostly had items we were expecting. (We bought our own coffee and paper napkins and extra rolls of paper towels.) The large screen TV in the living area and its broad range of streaming options were a nice touch and easy to use. The upstairs master bedroom is a loft, with an overlook to the living area. Each of the two downstairs bedrooms have another bed available by climbing up a ladder to a sleeping loft. There is central air that quickly cools down the place if it gets hot, and there are separate cooling units in each of the downstairs bedrooms. The bottom line: lots of comfortable places to sleep, easily accommodating up to 7 guests. And plenty of sheets and towels for your stay. However, if you’re a light sleeper, early-night sleeper, or late-morning sleeper, the air traffic from the Santa Monica airport could be a downer, at least without earplugs. The street follows the flight path of planes taking off between the airport’s operating hours of 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. (8 a.m. on weekends). Additionally, if your car doesn’t have a high enough clearance, like ours (a sedan), your car will likely scrape the edge of the driveway every time you enter and exit. You’d be better off using street parking, as available.

    We had a wonderful experience on Dewey Ave. Dylan’s home is very well appointed and a great design and layout. The double sliding doors in the dining area really bring the outside in and the outdoor space is just simply lovely. Dylan was amazing! My husband left his charger and Dylan graciously overnighted it to our next stop on our trip. Highly recommend Dewey Ave.!

    Some of the points that should be improved: - The master bedroom sink is clogged and around the faucets is really dirty. The house is great and quiet and very close to Venice beach - but you need a car. It's expensive too and we faced some disagreement that would need to be solved. - The dishwasher is old and full of limestone. - the washing machine smells mold - The BBQ has not been cleaned for really too long and is out of propane - Curtains of the master bedroom was blocked in open position and you awake very early - Several dishes, glasses, stencils were dirty

    We were looking for a centrally located, modern place in Santa Monica to accommodate a family of seven and were happy to have found this house. It is spacious and clean with lots of natural light, located in a quiet neighborhood (the occasional planes departing from the small airport nearby didn't bother us).

    This home is perfect for a large family or different families coming together with children. There are enough bedrooms and lofts and bathrooms to accomodate many different age groups. It was a very clean and comfortable home to stay in and the kitchen was fully equiped if you chose to eat or cook in. The location is terrific, easy drive or walk to the beach. I had elderly parents with me so having a bedroom on the main floor with its own bathroom was ideal. The owner was very accessible and always got back to me quickly. I would highly recommend this property to anyone.

    My family of five loved staying in this house for a month last Christmas! The home is extremely well-located, with easy access to parks and outdoor activities, as well as shopping and restaurants. There are numerous supermarkets within walking distance, including what must be one of the world's largest Whole Foods. The location makes it easy to access the beach communities of Santa Monica and Venice, and since it's also near the 10 and 405 freeways, the rest of Los Angeles is just a stone's throw away. We loved the house's clean, modern layout and landscaping, including the fire pit in the backyard, which was nice on the occasionally cool California winter evenings. It's clear that the owner has put a lot of thought and attention into the house's design, and has worked hard to keep the house in good condition. Each of the bedrooms in the house has a separate sleeping loft, so it can accommodate additional guests, which could be convenient for larger groups. We also appreciated that the owner was so attentive to our needs, including rearranging the beds prior to our arrival, and so responsive to our questions over email. All in all, we couldn't imagine a better place to experience the Southern California lifestyle!

    Because our daughter was getting married in LA, a sizable house was needed for my wife and me along with our two other kids and their spouses. Throw in a sister and brother in law, and we had one busy place. The house worked out well, each having their own bedroom. The computer/TV came in most handy when finding a route for rehearsal dinner, wedding venue, eateries, etc., as well as keeping up with the NFL Draft. Visits from other family and friends posed no problems as there was more than adequate parking. We thoroughly enjoyed the manicured backyard and the firepit in the evenings and chilly mornings, along with daytime walks through the lovely neighborhood. The location was great-a very quiet street other than an occasional fly-over from the Santa Monica Airport. Access to Santa Monica and the freeways was quite easy, as were the frequent trips to LAX. The only negative feature is that the hardwood floors throughout the home tended to carry noise and conversations to the open upstairs bedroom. But that really didn't prove to be a problem. The Owner was also very accomodating throughout our planning and stay, helping us out in numerous ways. In all, we had a great time in LA, and would readily stay there again for a future family affair.
