Why Carolyn Hagen chose Santa Monica
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!
What makes this cottage unique
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!
