Just west of Downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica beach is iconic for a reason. Offering large expanses of beach, bike trails, and nearby activities, Santa Monica Beach has exactly what you’re looking for.

VENICE BEACH
Venice Beach is one of many great L.A. beaches—and its acclaimed Breakwater is a favorite local surf spot. It’s the only place on the beach where waves break on both sides, while the sand is reportedly the finest for creating sand sculptures.

MALIBU
One of our go-to beaches, Zuma is also one of the most impressive in scope, stretching close to three miles along the coast. It’s also home to a great break for beginner surfers as well as a meeting spot for paddle boarding classes.

SURFRIDER BEACH
Home to the iconic first point surf break, Surfrider Beach is one of the more crowded beaches along the PCH, but it’s well situated if you’re looking to take in a bit of sun and some surfer-watching.

TOPANGA BEACH
Topanga Beach is the closest Malibu California beach to Los Angeles and is a great surf spot, with waves wrapping around the sandy point formed by Topanga Creek creating a continuous right break.

ANNENBERG COMMUNITY BEACH HOUSE

Neighborhood park with tennis & basketball courts, plus a playground for children.

What is Proper?

Proper began as a feeling, not as an idea. The feeling was something akin to empathy; an acute awareness that despite the current proliferation of “boutique” and “lifestyle” hotels and residences, there were precious few properties designed for and around today’s global creative nomad. Many in our milieu share the same daunting challenge: staying fresh and focused, energized and inspired—all whilst bouncing between London and Hollywood and Austin and San Francisco and Portland and back again. For them, intuitive service is a given. Mere table stakes. What they need and seek beyond accommodation, even at its most luxurious, is an inspiration. From the elevated and often surprising interiors imagined by Kelly Wearstler. From the sense of immersion in, and connection to, the vibrancy of the local culture. From the highly curated amenities. From the inspired collaborations with the city’s best and most innovative chefs and mixologists. From music and art. From every detail, every interaction, every moment. This is only Proper. And no one else.
