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,

Very accomodating

  • 5 of 5

My wife and daughter stayed at this wonderful cottage and it met all expectations. A lot of the arrangements had to be made last minute due to travel schedules, etc. and the owner was extremely accommodating. The cottage was private, well located and lived up to the description as advertised.

Perfect Little Guesthouse

  • 5 of 5

Our family flew in from Ohio to stay in Santa Monica for a family wedding. We were pleasantly surprised at how close the house was to the airport and to the beach. We were even able to walk to the shops, restaurants, and explore all that Santa Monica has to offer.

I have rented a lot of VRBO homes from across the country and this little guesthouse has made my top five places to stay. It is very clean, secluded from the road, easy to find, and was stocked with plenty of supplies in the kitchen. I would recommend this place to stay for anyone looking for a couple nights get away in the LA or Santa Monica area.

Fantastic, centrally located place to enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

It is a very hidden nice cottage in the second row to the street. With the great terrace half around the house, it is a very nice space to enjoy. The cottage with two bedrooms has a very practical floor plan with the living space and kitchen as central piece to the house. Everything for the vacation was provided, even beach toys are available besides towels, the wash machine and dryer as well as the required detergents.

We found everything according to the preparation mails we received. Everything was clean and worked well. Susan, the host was very welcoming and helpful during our stay--thank you very much for that.

We used the central location to explore Santa Monica, the beach pier and Venice beach, but also to discover the wider area with Hollywood, Beverly Hills and L.A.

Without doubt we would always recommend to stay with Susan again. Thank you very much, Thomas

Great Guest House

  • 5 of 5

We were a little apprehensive to stay in a guest house, but not only is it completely isolated from the main house, the owners respect your privacy. I'd definitely stay here again -- the location is great, the house is well equipped and comfortable -- no complaints!

What a jewel....

  • 5 of 5

Arriving after 20 plus hours of international travel with two small children this cottage was like a dream come true. Clean, well appointed, quiet....just lovely! The claw foot tub was especially appreciated by all! What a wonderful spot! A real jewel. Thank you!

Nebekers' vacation

  • 5 of 5

The guesthouse was ideal for our needs; great location, good walks in all directions, especially to the beach and 3rd St. Promenade. It is close to anything one might need including several grocery stores. The house itself was quiet and comfortable for four adults and two large dogs. It was well stocked with EVERYTHING needed to set up housekeeping. We used the deck as an extension of the house which was private feeling and very enjoyable. A couple of us actually set up our "desks" out there on days we had some work to do. We had other friends and family in town who we comfortably invited over on a couple of occasions for cocktails before going out for dinner. Once again, the deck was the spill-over space that everyone loved. As former residents of Southern Calif, we have stayed many places in the LA area since moving away. This was by far our most enjoyable stay. Thanks for sharing your house and neighborhood with us. We will be back!
