My slightly handicapped husband and I stayed here for a week, w/ our son and his family in September '14. We wIsh we had more time. We lived in Santa Monica for many years and love going back. This place is the perfect locations/ pier and many restaurants within walking distance, if you are not handicapped. You have great views day and night w/ beach activity and the lights from the pier rides at night. House is fantastic, service great. Michelle is very helpful and pleasent and housekeeper nice upon our arrival and departure. Only improvement for us, would have been a small table, mirror & chair in master, for make up application etc. Mirror too far away in bathroom. This was only a little inconvenient. If u want to splurge, this place is like a dream come true.
