I've lived in Santa Monica for 30 years and love sharing my community with visitors from all over the world! I've served on the Santa Monica Commission on the Status of Women, helped found a major environmental organization (Heal the Bay) and been a leading spokesperson on statewide civil liberties issues.

Your stay in my Bungalow supports my work to assist Iraqi refugees. Find out more about me at LivingLargeInLimbo dot com.

Carolyn Hagen purchased this cottage in 2001

This is my home, and I'm happy to rent it to vacationers so that I may continue my work oversees with refugees. I've lived in this neighborhood since 1982. I've been renting my home steadily since 2008 and have many returning guests!

This is a clean, safe option in a great neighborhood for budget-conscious travelers -- especially those with children. I come home every 3 months or so and love, just love, sitting outside on the private porch with my morning coffee, smelling the clean, salt air. And, of course, there's Charley, the friendliest cat on the planet!

COSY AND CONVENIENT

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at the bungalow for three nights. The location was perfect for our plan - explore L.A. and stay at the beach. We utilized Hop-on Hop-off buses, and one of the route stops is near by the bungalow at the SM Pier (15 min walk) so it was convenient. Charley was a sweet company and watching over while we were outdoors. We definitely will come again if the life brings us back to nice and sunny Santa Monica. The premises were kept clean as listed and well-maintained. The owner and manager kept in touch promptly over the email. We enjoyed the area, explored some of the places recommended by the owner and pumped the energy from walks on the near by beach.

VISITING FROM ST. LOUIS

  • 4 of 5
Charley was indeed a great ambassador. He slept on the bed each of the 4 nites that we were there. We were out and around most of the time, but, overall, the house was small but comfy and we had all we needed for a short stay. Beach was a nice walk away, grocery store down the block and number of places to eat within walking distance including a close by late night taco truck after coming back from a Dodger game. Traffic in and around LA was horrendous; but just nice in this area. We think this was really good value for the location. We were able to also park in front of the garage on all days except one. Glad we stayed!
