Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Susan,



We had a great time in Santa Monica, and we enjoyed our stay at your house.



Sorry, I left some cupcakes in the frig (not as sorry as my daughters!).



Thank you.



Sincerely,

Terry

GREAT LOCATION!

  • 3 of 5
The property is adorable and in a great location to Main Street and the beach. Very clean, well maintained, with more than enough clean towels, blankets, and sheets. Laundry facilities are an added convenience. My only complaint is regarding the pull out sofabed - it was extremely uncomfortable. However, the owner promptly provided us with an air mattress when requested. But, we only rented for 3 nights. The sofabed really needs to be replaced. Not even acceptable for small children. I wouldn't recommend using this option for a week's stay if you need to accommodate more than 4 people.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in my guesthouse! I am happy that you found it exceeded your needs regarding linens, was very clean, well maintained and had conveniences that suited you. The location is unique to Santa Monica, it truly gives guests the feel of a neighborhood with the original beach bungalows and tree lined streets and is convenient for beach access, Main Street browsing as well as exploring the eclectic nature of Rose Avenue, with new fun eateries sourcing local organic food and Abbot Kinney Boulevard with its mix of local shops and retail stores in an area that has a hip, urban vibe.

I am happy I was able to accomodate all of your requests to your satisfaction in a timely manner so you could enjoy your stay during the holiday season.

The families of 8 (up to 5 adults and 3 children) and 6 (usually 4 adults and 2 children; and upon occasion 6 adults) that have stayed also have been pleased with the amenities and location of my guesthouse/cottage, enjoying the privacy, neighborhood and the unique, hip location.

What you see online is what you get.
This place was clean and located in a great area. Very private and quiet area. Close to the fun shops in Santa Monica and Venice.
The owner was very nice accommodating. We only communicated via email. I would definitely stay here again.

COSY

  • 3 of 5
We where a group of 3 guys on the beginning of our road trip across the USA. The place was clean and tidy no issues there. There was a Whole foods about 10 min walk away which was handy for stocking the fridge etc. I would most defiantly recommend you have a car if staying here as it is quite a long walk to the beach with a big hill to climb up on you way back. if you had kids in tow and your beach gear etc it would be a bit of an effort. Taxis where very difficult to flag down. Susan although we only saw her very briefly was very accommodating when we left some of our shopping behind. She arranged for it to be sent by Fedex to our hotel in Las Vegas which was very much appreciated.I would recommend this place to two couples or a small family it has two bed rooms both with queen beds and a not so comfortable pull out sofa bed.

Owner's Response: My guesthouse/cottage is located 7 blocks from the gorgeous, expansive, white sand beach for which Santa Monica is famous. Walking to the beach through historic residential neighborhoods with Craftsman cottages and bungalows gives you a feel for living in this coastal community which enjoys a Mediterranean climate and over 340 days of sunshine a year. On your walk to the beach you'll encounter Main Street, full of eclectic shops, restaurants, brew pubs and coffee shops. Several guests, including families with small children, have enjoyed this walk as it gives them a sense of community and a chance to wind-down, escape the hustle-and-bustle of daily life stresses and enjoy themselves.
My guesthouse/cottage is fully furnished with new linens, bath towels and beach towels. Whether you want to relax on the wrap-around deck or enjoy a cozy fire in the fireplace, the ambiance is designed to ensure your comfort and relaxation is paramount.
Relax, enjoy the walk, feel connected to the neighborhood and have a wonderful stay in Santa Monica as you stay in my Craftsman style guesthouse/cottage!

SANTA MONICA GUESTHOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Everything was as outlined by the owner in the VRBO listing. Street parking was always easily available. Simple and easy processes for checking in and leaving. Without a doubt would consider using the same accommodations if I was to come back to the area. Main Street shops and restaurants are an easy 6 block walk away.
