Looking for a sizzling vacation rental, consider renting an accommodation in Santa Monica.

The average daytime temperature is 75 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit in summer and 65 to 75 degrees in winter.

There is a variety of lodging rental options in Santa Monica which is only eight miles or about 15-20 minutes from Los Angeles. There are transportation car rental companies located at or near Los Angeles International Airport and you can drive to your vacation home rental or condo rental. Other options include taxis with capped rates of $35, the Big Blue Bus, which costs less than a dollar or shuttle services costing approximately $15 to $20 each way.

Santa Monica has more than three miles of very nice beaches and a pleasant bike path that hugs the sand starting in Santa Monica and goes south through Venice and the Marina. The Santa Monica Mountains are full of rugged trails for seasoned and beginner mountain bikers to enjoy. Whether you prefer a vacation home rental accommodation or condo rental, many are available within close proximity.

The famous and historic Santa Monica Pier built in 1909 is home to the solar powered nine-story high Ferris wheel and the vintage carousel that offers a splendid view of Santa Monica and the fabulous beach surrounding it.

Santa Monica is small and prides itself on being pedestrian and environmentally friendly. The electric powered Tide Shuttle bus service runs along the beach offering great views plus a ride to the artsy Bergamot Station and the Santa Monica Museum of Art, or to your nearby vacation rental accommodations. The Third Street Promenade is a stroller's paradise, especially for families with children, and is known for its multitude of movie theatres, restaurants, book stores, galleries, antique shops and animated street performers. At the aquarium underneath the boardwalk, your children can do a scavenger hunt, play in the children's area or watch an informative movie about sea creatures. Vacation rental accommodations in the Santa Monica area help make your family vacation extra special.

This quintessentially quirky Southern Californian beach town is situated between Venice Beach and Malibu.
