About this location
When you enter the cactus garden it feels like you’ve been transported to Joshua Tree. Conveniently located in the heart of LA, halfway between downtown LA and Santa Monica, and just off Hwy 10.
The magic of the space is in the garden. The original owner had an exotic plant nursery and planted many tropical trees and different varieties of cactus that have been growing there for over 30 years. The garden looks unlike anything in LA with 16’+ cactus mix with bougainvilleas and other flowering plants to create a one-of-a-kind space perfect for garden parties and outdoor events.
Included with the space is a free-standing 2 bedroom house built in the 60s and updated a few years ago. The interiors have a warm desert-style design with hardwood floors throughout.
This is the ideal place for a garden outdoor party. The yard is very large and unique with tons of cafe lights strung to provide mood lighting at night. The garden can easily seat 32 in the largest open space (4 tables of 8), but there are many other smaller spaces and two side yards where smaller tables could be placed to create a spread out feeling or entertain more guests. There is also an outdoor fireplace to provide a small amount of warmth and a large amount of atmosphere. The garden would also be wonderful for daytime events like workshops, goddess circles, and more. Different parts of the yard have shade throughout the day, so there’s always a shady spot, but the main yard gets sunlight from around 11 am until 5 pm.
Parking and additional info: The house itself is located at the end of a dead-end street. Parking may not be available right out front but will be available in the neighborhood (no permit required). It can be a little difficult to locate the house because the gate is partially hidden. When hosting events we will put up signage to help out, but providing clear instructions to guests will be key to helping them find it.
