Pacific Palisades is a beautiful small village, within Los Angeles, ensconced between the Santa Monica mountains and the Pacific Ocean, 10 minutes north of Santa Monica, 10 minutes south of Malibu. 5 minutes to hiking & biking trails and beach.
Our apartment building is a modern building from the 60s, with access to the outdoors on both sides of our 1150 square foot unit. There are 2 bedrooms( king size bed, bunk beds) 1-1/2 bathrooms, loft-like living room/dining room/kitchen area, 2 large balconies/terraces, dishwasher, and laundry room on our floor. We have plenty of toys: puzzles, blocks. legos, playmobil, basketball hoop, etc, and 2 pianos. ( We are a family of musicians.) We are on the second floor and have limited ocean views. On a clear day you can see Catalina, an island out in the Pacific. We are ideally situated across the street from public transportation to downtown Santa Monica, where there are many movie theaters, restaurants, cafes, outdoor pedestrian malls and the Santa Monica Pier/amusement park.
Our building has a heated pool and a small gym.
I am available by email and cell phone to advise guests on any information they may want. I leave a map detailing restaurants, hikes, shopping, beaches etc.
This is our home, not a vacation rental. Do not expect a hotel environment, but rather a home full of books, music, instruments, toys, etc. There will be plenty of empty space left for your clothing.
I live in Pacific Palisades (Los Angeles) but grew up on Key Biscayne. My 4 siblings and I own the house together and cherish the time we spend together in our parents' house. Our father came from Cuba, our mother from the Phillippines. We speak English and Spanish. We love music, architecture , and design. We love to entertain and indulge in long meals with lots of conversation. We travel mostly to be with family, in the US and Spain. We love the outdoors and take full advantage of the many possibilities to swim, sail, bike, kiteboard, fish, snorkel, etc. right here on Key Biscayne.
