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, clean and private guesthouse

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Susan and her family's guesthouse for 8 days this summer.

They have been excellent hosts and Susan responded quickly by email whenever I wrote to her.

The guesthouse is situated only 10 minutes walk from the most wonderful beach, really! We have been to tons of beaches but never one as good as this. Furthermore, the house had four small surfboards that we had great fun using at the beach where the waves were big.

Santa Monica Pier is approximately 1/2 hours walk from the house, and just a little further, there is a large shopping area on third street. The whole area has lots of dining possibilities, shops etc.

The guesthouse is charming, clean and a very good place to relax. The wraparound terrace is so wonderful and we were thrilled to learn that a beautiful little hummingbird came by the tree near the house every day. Every day we tried to capture it with our camera, but unfortunately without any luck - maybe you'll have better luck!

We also enjoyed being able to wash some clothes after being on the road for two weeks before arriving at the guesthouse.

The guesthouse was very clean - and this is really important to me, so I can't emphasize this enough. It was spotless!

The wifi was fast and this was very nice, since we have two teenagers dying to check their Facebook, Snap chat with their friends etc.

Susan and her family made sure that we had privacy but were around if we needed them. We appreciated this.

We would definitely stay at Susan's guesthouse next time we are in Santa Monica. I strongly recommend others to do the same - it was a GREAT experience.

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.
