cool ocean breezes, year round beautiful weather, and ideal location make our gated yard an oasis right in the middle of all that LA and santa monica have to offer...come join us for a visit!:)
A succulent garden surrounds this hidden converted garage. In June & July 2014 we re-landscaped our gardens to weave an array of tropical palms and sustainable low water succulents. In the middle of all this we have converted our garage into a living space. Private, quiet and secure, this solar powered room overlooks our Spanish style pool, patio, and yard. Ambient WiFi allows you to roam and stay connected while watching the sunset or enjoying the beautiful Santa Monica year-round weather. Inside the tastefully decorated large room there is a queen bed, desk, armoire, flat screen TV, a full wall of cabinet storage, and an iphone/ipad dock. The kitchenette has a microwave, refrigerator, toaster oven, coffee maker, crock pot, blender, stove top burner, and all dish-ware and cookware needed. sink is shared with the bathroom. if something is missing i can usually supply it:)
The bathroom has a tiled floor that matches the pool outside, mahogany, porcelain, and granite top sink.
We are biking distance to the beaches and our neighborhood is a great place for walking. A brand new Bristol Farms Market has every healthy food offering and is just one block away. This desirable location is just steps from world famous restaurants and shops, multiple bus lines and the 405 & 10 freeways. Fully furnished, it has plenty of storage, and is an oasis from the city, while being centrally located in the heart of Santa Monica. We have a bar-b-q for your enjoyment, and there are bike rentals close by. sometimes we even have bikes for you to use...LAX is a quick 20 minute car ride, and sights such as Venice Beach, UCLA, Disneyland, myriad Museums, and greater Los Angeles are very conveniently nearby. Gated private keypad entry & permit parking provide security and ample parking right in front of the house. Our small family lives in the main house, with our sweet pup named Puppy and her new sister Honey Bear (both 11 lb. dogs).
We are here to help make your stay in beautiful Santa Monica one to remember, and look forward to meeting you!
lots of sitting areas, gardens, pool, bar-b-q, paths, and plenty of good cheer for all...
we live in the front house, and thoroughly enjoy engaging with our tenants. puppy and honey love meeting new people also!
while living in a quiet enclave backyard, we are just a few minutes walk to everything: 2 starbucks, great restaurants, bristol farms - huge supermarket with an array of ready made healthy choices and wine cellar, pharmacy, busses, freeways etc.
conveniently minutes walk to busses that go everywhere including downtown los angeles and LAX...
As with many homes, our plumbing cannot accommodate even "flushable" baby wipes. Please do not flush anything but toilet tissue.
We text each other so that any concerns are dealt with immediately. While sharing the outdoor space, the patio and yard are so magnificent that often times we convene in the garden for a glass of wine or coffee, or some sunset Bar-B-Q. We have met so many interesting people from all over the world, and love to compare experiences. It makes for a rich and rewarding experience. At the same time, everyone's privacy remains intact, and we all have a place we can go to be alone...respect and communication help everything!
Lisa was a wonderful host. Attentive to my requests, prompt in her responses and interested in listening to feedback so she can improve her guests experience. Overall I had a great time and enjoyed talking with her and playing with her two dogs Puppy and Honey. The pool is very clean and was a real boon in the hot weather this summer. The garage is comfortable and I enjoyed opening the door and being part of the delightful back yard.
I spent 1 month with a friend un Lisa's converted garragge and it was an amazing experience ! I could expect better place to discover L.A. The studio is well furnished, we can find everything we need. Lisa is a wonderful person, always smiling and trying to help you feeling at home. The best of that place will definitely remain the garden, the lovely hosts and of course, the wonderful pool, perfectly cleaned everyday. I really enjoy my time in that wonderful place. I will definitely recomend it !
Lisa was a great hostess. The room is very comfortable and the location is great.
I stayed at Lisa's garage for 3 months while working at UCLA.
Lisa is a very warm and lovely person, and it was a pleasure getting to know her and the family. And puppy is the cutest dog ever. She did so much to make sure that my stay was great and I felt at home from day one.
The place itself is great, very comfortable and had everything I needed. Lisa just redid the backyard while I was and its absolutely beautiful! The pool area is great and nice to hang around. The location is great. I chose to ride a bike to UCLA, which is a short 20-25 min ride. The beach is also a short ride away! It's a couple of minutes away from the bus lines, so its easy to get anywhere.
I would definitely recommend staying here.
I stayed in Lisa´s Garage for 7 weeks in July and August. The location is very convenient to UCLA and the beach (15min by bus - the bus stop is a few min walk) but for my purpose not the perfect choice... not for studying and not for a long term stay (no kitchen and coin laundry 20min walk away). Lisa was endeavored to make my stay comfortable, but: it is still a garage. There are no windows, just a (entrance) door in the bathroom. The pool is amazing and I´m sure this might be a perfect place for vacation/discovering LA and when you just need a place to sleep ;-) Lisa - of course, I will visit you next time, but I will try to get your Poolhouse which is soooo nice ;-) !!!
we too enjoyed having you stay in our converted garage and the conversations that we had during your stay. i just wanted to mention that while there is no kitchen, there is lots in the kitchenette. and while there are no regular windows, there is still great ventilation and light coming in from the glass windows all across the door wall. it is also an amazing outdoor space by the pool. great price and value for miles in any direction in our area. see you next time in the poolhouse:)
Chambre confortable dans un garage aménagé, proche de toute commodités. stationnement facile.
Lisa's studio converted garage was absolute heaven! Me and my boyfriend stayed here for a whole month! Perfect location-Very easy to get around Santa Monica and surrounding areas. A VERY safe area-felt incredibly safe at Lisa's which is always my number one priority. The pool area is beautiful! And there is a table tennis table which me and my boyfriend made full use of! Lisa and her family were great, such amazing welcoming people who made us feel right at home! Puppy was the cutest little dog in the whole world! I could not recommend this place highly enough and will definitely be returning when next in the area! The only downside was that we could not stay even longer! Thank you so much Lisa- we truly had the BEST time!

I live in the main house, in front of our place that we rent, with my husband, 15 year old son, our small pup, named Puppy. I am an artist working in film and television on special projects such as portraits, murals, and myriad hand painted props. On weekends in the winter i work on ski patrol at Bear Mountain - 2 hours away. My husband is a family practice doctor, and we both love the great outdoors. Listing on Airbnb has provided us with the amazing opportunity to meet people from all over. It has been enriching and rewarding to connect with different ages, cultures and personalities. We are interested in travel, sports of all kinds and have a sense of adventure. we love cultural exchange and are eager to hear different points of view. we look forward to meeting you.....
