When you wanna get away from the Madding Crowd, you’ve got few options.
Home? Boring. Hotel? Played out.
Or, this: CASA, a hidden bungalow nestled beside The Stronghold on Abbot Kinney, now taking reservations.
Tilled by the laid-back brohams at Shelter Half, CASA is stocked with military canvas upholstered wood furniture a la Environment, surfing art and a Hemingway-esque trunk bar stocked with Laphroaig, Pyrat rum and vino.
The second floor porch — set back behind foliage and overlooking Abbot Kinney — is perfect.
It’s lightly shaded by a straw roof, recessed from the street and outfitted with large, pillowy furniture on wheels, stone-potted succulents and a thick canvas curtain for ultimate privacy.
CASA has two bedrooms (sleeps four) and is available for extended stays or a single evening soirée.
And if you need to get away from the house, grab one of the bikes or Almond Surfboards from the garage and cruise.
Ride. Relax. Repeat.
