About The Owner

Hello fellow travelers! I love jogging, meditating and walking my dog Pfeiffer on the beautiful white sandy beach that is a quick walk from our guest house. My passion is traveling (the UK, France, Spain, Hawaii, Bali, Thailand… just to name a few!) and so I love welcoming and introducing visitors from all over the world and the US to our beautiful Loft House and Santa Monica area. I have been hosting guests at The Loft House since November 2008. Feel free to email me with any questions or call me at

(310) 488-3182.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Guestbook comments from the owner

The following is a review of The Loft House that appears on another vacation-rental website, word for word: "My wife and I and our teenage son (17) spent 8 wonderful nights at the Loft House. I wish there was a higher rating than 5 because this property and the owner (Deborah) fully deserve it. The house is beautifully designed and exceptionally appointed with great style and care. The location is on a quiet residential street close to Santa Monica and Venice/Marina Del Rey. We found it to be a perfect base for looking at colleges for our son. But what sets the Loft House apart is Deborah's amazing attention to detail and her wonderful customer service. She has added so many special touches, including an extensive restaurant binder, a DVD library, sleep masks, fresh ground coffee and even office supplies in the desk!! These touches made us feel that we were staying in a luxurious and chic hotel, but with the wonderful benefits of privacy, space and a gourmet kitchen. I have traveled pretty extensively and I honestly have not come across the perfect combination achieved at the Loft House - a beautiful property and superb customer service. We look forward to returning soon. I recommend the Loft House fully and without hesitation."



Owners Response: Our location is actually in the Heart of Santa Monica! We are walking distance to the Beach with its 22 mile bike/walk/skate path & Main Street with its array of great restaurants (i.e., Wolf Gang Puck), hip boutiques, coffee houses, yoga studios and a weekend farmer's market. We are also less than a 5 minute drive to the famous Santa Monica Pier, Third Street Promenade, Montana Ave. and the Venice Boardwalk.

Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer :)

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience renting a home instead of staying in a hotel. It was well worth it!

First off, Hats off to the Owners!! I can't say enough about them! Deborah was the perfect host. She was there to make sure we were Happy! She made us feel that this was our home, & if we needed anything we knew we could call her for assistance.

The home itself was beyond gorgeous, we just didn't want to leave! The pictures don't really do it justice. It was clean and so beautifully appointed. It was also stocked with so many amenities that I just didn't expect... it’s beautifully and stylishly decorated with a comfortable sofa, cozy cushions and rugs, and thoughtful decorative touches everywhere you look. It is clear that a lot of care and love has gone into the creation of this space, and you feel that it's important to the owners for the experience to be both special and at the same time for you to feel like you are at home. They certainly succeeded in that regard!

The home itself is situated in a beautiful, quiet, neighborhood , near the beach area and the Promenade with so many shops and restaurants close by. We walked quite a bit, day and evening, and it felt very safe.

We will definitely be back It really was an absolute delight to stay at this lovely townhouse, we just can't wait to return again! Sonya

I could never imagine staying anywhere more perfect in Santa Monica.

NICELY DECORATED AND COMFORTABLE

  • 4 of 5

DEBORAH WAS VERY HELPFUL AND A WONDERFUL HOST

I DIDN'T HAVE A CAR AND WALKED OR UBER'D EVERYWHERE BUT IF YOU WANT TO

EXPLORE BEYOND SANTA MONICA, VENICE OR MARINA DEL REY A CAR WOULD BE NECESSARY AND THE AVAILABILITY OF THE GARAGE WAS A BIG PLUS FOR MY GUESTS.

Lovely house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

What a gem in Santa Monica! The loft is very private and quiet in spite of being only blocks from town. Deborah is a wonderful host who thought of every amenity from beach chairs to laundry detergent. The loft is beautiful and the design of the space is near perfect. There is easy access to the beach and if you need dining recommendations, there is a binder with menus for every restaurant within 30 miles. We hosted our son and daughter in law for dinner several nights and the kitchen was very well appointed. Plus a garage, that put it over the top!

Comfortable and convenient in Santa Monica

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Loft House for a week while I attended a conference at UCLA and he golfed with friends. The house was perfect for our needs - open floor plan, kitchen with everything we needed and comfortable living room. It was also nice to have the garage for the car. Deborah has compiled great collection of restaurant menus and information on all the sights in the area which were really helpful.

Note that like many homes in California, there is no AC, something us Midwesterners seem to take for granted! Temperatures were quite comfortable with the windows open, but a little noisy at night. Home is in a cute neighborhood that is walkable.

Wonderful Stay at The Loft House! Never Wanted to Leave!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 3 nights in this wonderful Loft House in Santa Monica! Perfect for four people, the house is even better than the pictures! The house is immaculate and very well equipped. Deborah has made sure the Loft House has all the conveniences and comforts of home. The location is fantastic too – very close to the Santa Monica beaches, and it’s also just a short jump over to Venice beach too, and minutes from 3rd Street Promenade and Abbott Kinney. The Loft House is also truly very central to so many popular attractions and sites. With Deborah's help we were able to navigate quite easily over to Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Universal City, etc… Wish we could have stayed longer! Will definitely book this again next time we are in Santa Monica and I highly recommend The Loft House to anyone visiting the area

Amazing Guest House!

  • 5 of 5

The Loft House has such a wonderful "vibe"... each time I walked in it felt like I was entering my own beautiful retreat house. The Loft Houst is beyond gorgeous with its high ceilings, skylight, big windows, gorgeous decor and deck on the top floor. It catches the wind and the sun at just the right times! It is beautifully decorated and Deborah has made sure to include lots of thoughtful touches such as fresh orchids, a fully stocked kitchen with lots of staples, and a huge binder full of menus and information about local restaurants from a block away out to Beverly Hills and Hollywood. The Loft House is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood. I loved waking up early, sitting on the upstairs deck and listening to the neighborhood birds chirp in the morning- it was the best start to my day. The Loft House is a special place and I can't wait to come back next time I'm in LA.

Our loft-style home is perfectly located and is an ideal base for living in Los Angeles. We are located in the heart of Santa Monica, in a quiet residential area walking distance to the white sandy beaches with its 22 mile walk / bike / rollerblade path. We are also a short walk to Main Street, one of the area's most popular destinations for upscale eateries and hip boutiques. We are within 1 mile of Venice & the Venice Boardwalk (famous for its cast of characters, street vendors & performers), the Santa Monica Pier (complete with a Ferris wheel, 1922 carousel, amusement park & dining), 3rd Street Promenade (movie theaters, Farmer's Markets, terrific shopping, dining & engaging street performers), and Montana Avenue (frequented by affluent Angelinos & celebrities). We are only 20 minutes from LAX, 15 minutes to Beverly HIlls, 25 minutes to either Hollywood, Malibu or Universal Studios, and Disneyland is only a short 45 minutes away.
