About Our Home
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. We have many parks, beaches and hiking and biking trails just minutes from our apartment (see map). Pacific Palisades is a quiet residential community of mostly single-family homes, a village center with high-end small boutiques,restaurants, parks, a Sunday farmers market, and 2 grocery stores. We do not have large stores, industry, hotels, fast food restaurants etc. . 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. There are several local summer camps for children of all ages, ranging from beach camps, surf camps, sports camps, and tennis camps, all minutes away, ideal for language and cultural immersion.

We've had two families from Paris stay in our apartment for non-simultaneous exchanges. They were both great. Just haven't been able to go to Paris yet. We hope to be able to go to Israel in June, but are open to other places for other times.

My husband is going to Israel to explore musical possibilities- he's a film composer- and we'd like to join him at the end of his trip.

We've had 2 families from Paris stay with us for non-simultaneous exchanges. We look forward to being able to swap again. We are very respectful and will take care of your home as if it were our own. We love to meet new people from different cultures. Being musicians, we would love a place with a piano, but it is not necessary.
