The Writer’s Shed in Venice
What could be more romantic that penning love letters to your partner from an actual writers shed? This one is just moments from Venice Beach and comes with a lap pool and jacuzzi so you can soothe any writer’s block in the bubbles. Venice makes for a very cool spot these days with an abundance of restaurants and bars to woo your date. Once you’ve impressed with a cocktail on a rooftop bar, take a (slightly clichéd but what the hell, you’re in love) stroll around the Venice Canals.
A castle in the Hollywood Hills
You can't get a more romantic getaway in Los Angeles than taking your prince or princess to an actual castle in Hollywood. Sounds a bit farfetched? Believe us. This incredible building was built in 1926 and is complete with a spiral staircase and tower bedroom. Call the room your own for a few days and pretend you’re in Game of Thrones (without the Red Wedding). Any honeymooners will be easily entertained in the Hollywood Hills – from pretending you don’t care about celebrity spotting to toasting your way around the fabulous bar scene.
A beachside beauty in Malibu
This stunning Plum Guide home on the shores of the Pacific Ocean makes for the perfect romantic getaway, Los Angeles style. Sunset on the deck overlooking the ocean doesn’t get much better and you are literally steps away from sand between your toes. Think Malibu, think beaches so explore the coast with your love and spend time whispering sweet nothings into each other’s ears. Hike the hills and book a wine tasting to impress your partner.
A cottage in West Hollywood
This cottage in West Hollywood is the stuff dreams are made of. From the moment of walking through the wooden gates, you’ll feel miles from anyone. Luckily, you’re still in amongst it so head to Los Angeles County Museum of Art or the weekend farmers market for a break from snogging. Back home, grill up something delicious on the BBQ and gaze lovingly into one another’s eyes in the secluded garden. Feel free to make the evening more clichéd with Chris de Burgh's ‘Lady In Red’ playing in the background.
A beach retreat in Santa Monica
This Plum Guide home is frankly, stunning. With a pavilion, badminton net, barbecue and impressive lawn you’ll be spending most of the time in the beautiful gardens here. Make sure to pack your best summer wears to impress your love. The beach is just down the road so evenings spent watching the sunset, holding hands and making onlookers jealous of your happiness are on the agenda.
A jaw-dropping masterpiece in Malibu
Nothing quite says ‘I love you’ like a super large jacuzzi with panoramic ocean views. That’s not the only thing this incredible Malibu home has to offer. Built by award-winning architects, every detail of this home has perfection at its core. Minimalist design and views to die for make this one of the best romantic getaways Los Angeles offers. Located close to the Pacific Coast Highway, this scenic drive makes for a perfect romantic road trip with your beloved. Of course, the beaches are incredible around here so make sure to liberally apply sun cream to your better half, slowly.
A villa in Beverley Hills
Shout your love from the rooftops of 90210, one of the world’s most famous postcodes. Beverley Hills is famed for its luxurious residential homes, award-winning food scene and high-end shopping. Show your love by spending all your money on Rodeo Drive and eating exceptionally expensive food. Oh, you romantic you.
