Casa del Mar – Luxury on Santa Monica Bay
Summer Tour of Los Angeles Starts at Casa del Mar
This truly is a home by the sea, the sea in this case being Santa Monica Bay. The luxury hotel is located right on the sand with a short walk to the Santa Monica Pier and not far from Santa Monica Place and the 3rd Street Promenade. Or, you can turn the other way and walk down the beach to the Venice Boardwalk. Malibu and Pt. Dume mark the northern edge of the bay that you can see from the hotel and Palos Verdes lies on the southern tip, also visible when the skies are clear. In the winter when the air is crystal sharp you easily can see Catalina Island. And believe us, you will be drinking in the view from the magnificent Lounge or Catch, their modern seafood restaurant, the swimming pool deck, the beachfront and your suite in the hotel. Originally built as a beach club in 1926, most locals will remember it as once being the headquarters for Synanon and the Pritikin Institute, both helping residents deal with addiction and health issues. It was in 1998 that the Casa del Mar was remodeled into its present incarnation and stands today as one of the finest luxury hotels in Los Angeles. The beautiful premises and setting, the friendly and professional staff and the excellent accommodations and amenities must be why our private Los Angeles tour guests joining us for a custom luxury look at what Los Angeles has to offer are always happy and enthusiastic when we greet them.
