This Valentine’s Day the air might be crisp, so let these backyards, decks, and rooftops warm your hearts and souls. Here are a dozen gorgeous properties that make staying home for date night a pleasure.
Swim and soak at 446 23rd Street in Santa Monica.
Who doesn’t like taking a dip in a heated pool or bubbling spa? And with a home extensively renovated by Marmol Radziner to retreat to after, your date will be impressed by your serious design cred.
Retreat to the suite at 305 Venice Way
This property strikes a delicate balance: central location — moments from Abbot Kinney, the beach, and the canals, with peace and privacy. The bedroom with attached balcony sits at treetop level, where you and your loved one can lounge on deck chairs, shielded by lush foliage.
The suite has mastered the art of the indoor-outdoor flow. If it were up to us, we would never shut those sliders.
Shake a martini at 2405 Wilson Avenue — with your own private cocktail lounge and patio
With floor to ceiling doors this large, the line between inside and outside blurs and when the weather is perfect (90%+ of the time), they really become one.
Not just any romance — have a fairytale romance at 543 Broadway Street, Venice
With storybook charm and luxury amenities more often seen at resorts, La Grenouille Bleue will steal your heart.
Start in the afternoon so you can catch the sun setting from the deck. Then start to explore the property by taking a path around the 10,000-gallon Koi pond, watching the creatures swim gracefully by.
End up at the hot tub, sheltered by a classic gazebo or sit by the firepit and relax while overlooking the 15,000 sq. ft. grounds.
Dedicate a song to your darling at 524 Rialto Avenue
Then warm up on the upper deck — by fire or spa bubbles.
Recline and admire 2517 3rd Street in Santa Monica
Sometimes a view of something man mad can be as uniquely beautiful as a natural landscape.
Such is the case here — where a classic craftsman home has been lovingly maintained and perfectly updated. We can’t help but smile.
Unmatched love + unmatched views at 2921 Ocean Front Walk in Venice
When the beach itself is your own front yard and your balcony offers unobstructed views of it, anywhere else you could take a date just wouldn’t live up.

You’ll have no problem warming up here — cuddle up on the daybed and enjoy watching the flames dance in the sleek firepit.
