My daughter and I stayed here on her first trip to LA/Santa Monica and although we had a car, we didn't really need it for Santa Monica. Great location to the beach, Third St. Promenade and some great little restaurants within a 5 min. walk. Len is wonderful to work with, prompt, friendly, professional and wants you to enjoy your stay. The little cottage is wonderful, updated, charming and has everything you need. The outdoor patio is gorgeous - strung with little lights and perfect for a Santa Monica evening. We loved it and will stay at the guest house on our next visit.
