Stan Laurel's home is on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica, California. In the early 1960s the famed comedian, along with his wife, Ida, moved into a second floor, ocean view apartment, here at the Oceana Hotel. It would prove to be his final home. He won a special Lifetime Achievement Academy Award in 1961 while he was living here. He died on February 23, 1965 after suffering a heart attack several days earlier in his room.
