Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at this apartment from Aprll to July (3 months) while we were studying English in Santa Monica. This is a very beautiful apartment, nicer than the photos, in a quiet building, but close to everything (we rode our bikes daily!). We had plenty of room and privacy The private roof garden was wonderful with the hot tub and we had many nights outdoors watching the sunset and enjoying time with new friends.

We would recommend the apartment and the manager was always there to assist us with recommendations or anything that we needed.

Definitely The Place To Be!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely month this summer staying at the magical top floor apartment in Santa Monica, close to Venice Beach and the super cool Abbot Kinney. The place has a relaxing quality, with comfy bedrooms, a long balcony graced with humming birds, and an excellent roof terrace which proved an added bonus on days when the beach was a little too windy (or just to relax in the hot tub at the end of the day with a glass of wine in hand). The place was spotless and slightly old school in character, which we love. There definitely is a 'happy feel' to the apartment – just what you need for a relaxing break. If you enjoy the vibe of the area (this was our third visit) and are happy walking around to really get to know a place, then this is the perfect location as everything is nearby. Equally, buses and car rental to travel further afield are easily accessible and downtown Santa Monica and Main Street shopping are a comfortable stroll. The beach is less than 10 minutes away, with plenty of sights to see and things to do. The area also abounds with high quality, but affordable restaurants for food lovers and if yoga is your thing, this is definitely the place to be! Kathleen, our host, could not have been more helpful, ensuring we had everything we needed on arrival and throughout our stay. I hope we will be back again next year, as despite the long journey from the UK we just love it here.

Gloomy/Dank

  • 1 of 5

I agree with Jim C review. This place was a fire trap and very dangerous to people over 55 years old & young childred as the stairs were way to steep and narrow. It had a terrible smell when entering and I did ask her as she was showing us around if people smoke in there as it smelled heavily of cigarette smoke. She said no but had all the french doors (with now screens) open leading out to the decks as if trying to air it out.

The towels and sheets were so worn and sheets so thread bare and old moldy pillows that had a fowl odor. We turned on the oven to heat food and it had not been cleaned and started smoking and we opened it up and there was dried up meat product on the bottom of the oven that cause the whole apt to stink of rotting meat. When we opened the windows to air it out and opened up the french doors to the deck up pops squirrels trying run into the living room (not cute). The roof top Jacuzzi was a bit of a mess and the stairs leading up were covered in a plastic and nailed down with old rusty nails. I commented to her as she was showing us up to the top deck that the nails looked dangerous and if you cut your foot it would be a problem. I also asked her why they don't update the property calenders on the site and she gave no good response.

I would never recommend this place to anyone and do think that Home Away should be made aware of this as it does not meet the good quality of property they are renowned for as my family has stayed at many many properties for many years now and have never run into this situation before :(

Owner's Response: This reviewer seemed to struggle from the start with the reservation, very confused about who was calling her and who was e-mailing her; could not use PayPal for payment, mailed personal checks; had to mail contracts. On arrival at the apartment seemed to be in a generally bad mood, made several negative statements and comments that were absolutely untrue. *The issue from the oven had to be due to her food, no food was left in the oven! The apartment had been fully cleaned and was vacant for some time. *In good weather, we always open windows for the ocean air and the views. There is no mold on the pillows, and they are covered with new zippered pillow case covers. This is a non-smoking apartment building and we do not allow smoking on the property *There was ONE loose nail on the far left underside of one step (it is a dark metal, not rusty) nowhere near the footpath) leading to the roof deck. These stairs are carpeted with a cream colored Berber and have a clear plastic runner which covers the carpeting - the nail was on the underside of a stair tread where no foot could land, it holds down the clear plastic runner. *The jacuzzi is not “a bit of a mess” - it is regularly maintained by a spa service and is thoroughly pristine. *Sheets/ towels are not “threadbare “ and there were many additional towels and sheets in the linen chest. *There is a tree near the balcony and rarely a squirrel runs across the branch (note: none have never tried to enter the building - we have a permanent tenant living in this building for the last 7 years who can vouch for this - and for the light, bright stairway that accommodates width of two people, has double glass french doors leading to it, has a large glass window half way up the stairs at the entrance to this apartment, for the light, bright, airy apartment and the lack of ‘any odor” in the building. *We have had guests ranging from their 70’s to infants, couples, families with children with no complaints about anything, in fact the majority of reviews completely contradict this one. *This seemed to be a person who is exaggerating in an over-obvious fashion,and was perhaps unhappy with other things. She was unfriendly and appeared to dislike “everyone and everything”. NOTE: did not sign name to the ‘review’, did not call the manager or comment or complain during the stay. *It is very inappropriate when people slander another's business. We invite Homeaway to verify the property.

Disappointing!!!

  • 1 of 5

Not sure what apartment the reviews are describing but it certainly isn't the one that we booked but did not stay in Nov. 1-4th. We were given instructions (after we had paid in full) to park behind the house in an alleyway with many many large garbage cans and enter through a gate (which was falling off its hinges) and then into a courtyard which was by no means lush, up two flights of narrow stairs with carpet that I suspect has been there since the home was built. The smell going up those staircases was enough to turn your stomach, along with the insects that cluttered the window ledges, we couldn't imagine coming home in the dark back to this place. The apartment was bright, the furniture and linens dated and the bathroom with the shower and sink was not big enough to turn around in. Now we know why there are no pictures of the bathroom even though we asked for them. There were four of us and it took us 30 seconds to decide there is no way we could sleep in this unit so we called Kathleen to advise her of this, deposited the keys where we found them and left. We rent many homes through VRBO and HOMEAWAY and usually have good luck but there is a first time for everything. All we expect when we rent is that the owner portray the unit as it really is, give pictures that depict the size of the place or close to it and it be clean and well cared for, we did not get any of this renting this unit. The owner/property manager did not even offer to refund the cleaning fee which says alot.

Owner's Response: We were shocked to receive this review and can only guess that the renter wrote this to cover his own embarrassment. These complaints/ claims were outright lies. He was met at the apartment by one of the property managers and complained that he 'couldn't turn around in the bathroom'. Before arriving, he was concerned about the bathrooms and wanted bathroom photos (which were not available) (one is a 3/4 bath, the other a full bath - they are standard sizes) We had asked him several times if he had any "special needs", but none were indicated.” In the many years that we have rented this apartment, we have NEVER had a complaint about the size of the bathrooms, the stairs, the carpeting, etc. He also stated that “the advertised bedding was 2 King beds' which it clearly was not!!  we advertise a Full bed and a Queen bed with two full fold-out futon couches. We can only guess as to his harsh comments, NONE of which are accurate and which are contrary to ALL other reviews!!!  The last review from previous guest was FIVE STARS. He probably did not wish to 'look bad' in front of his companions because he erroneously booked an apartment without king -size beds.  He most likely was embarrassed to admit to the other travelers that he did not book exactly what they wished. We have no problem attending to any issues that might arise for any traveler, but we cannot comprehend these comments and feel they have unfairly maligned the property. His deposit and cleaning fee were refunded promptly.

Great Family Holiday...

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent 5 nights at this vacation property. We were a party of 4 adults and 2 children.

We found the Apartment to be spacious and clean. It had all the amenities to make it a comfortable stay. We were walking distance to great cafes, supermarket, beaches and the promenade. The area in which the apartment is located is a lovely and quiet neighborhood, we found everyone friendly when we walked around the area. There was also a play ground a few blocks away from the house, A bonus for children.

We would definitely stay here again as Kathleen was such a pleasure to deal with.

Thanks for a lovely relaxing Holiday....

P.S - The roof top is a added bonus, its was lovely to eat dinner alfresco.

a charming stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my 2 sisters and my little 1 year old daughter, all from Ireland, stayed in Catherine's apartment in September 09 and we all agree that it was a fantastic choice. We felt very comfortable and at home while we were there. It was a very cosy place and my little daughter loved to just potter around on the very nice soft carpet with the lovely open living space. The roof top garden with the hot tub was an added bonus. It was so private and safe also for a toddler. The apartment had everything we needed for our stay including wifi and we were a short walk from the main street and the beach. We would definitely recommened this place to people and hope to stay there the next time we are in LA.
