My enchanting home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

For 4 years Mary Ann Jordan's garden has been my winter home while working in Los Angeles. Each night i come home from work to the smell of jasmine, the gentle bubble of the fountain, the soft cooing of the doves, the casita is my spiritual refuge. Mary Ann Jordan has become a dear friend to all of us who stay here, we are so lucky to share her beautiful home and the gardens that she has lovingly created herself. With much affection, Andi Carole

A little piece of Heaven>

  • 5 of 5

My third winter stay at this beautiful haven in the sky. Every night to go to sleep with the doves cooing,to wake up to the hummingbirds greeting the morning over this beautiful garden. It is the most enchanting and beautifully maintained property in Santa Monica, I would stay permanently if I could.

The perfect little place

  • 4 of 5

The Garden Casita is really a pretty little retreat, just perfect after a busy day in LA. It's like a hotel suite with a cute kitchen, well equipped and with everything you need.

The garden itself is adorable, with citrus trees, lounge chaise longues/sun bed, a little fountain and beautiful flowers everywhere.

The place is calm and serene and the suite was clean and fresh. Mary Ann is an adorable property owner, who really provides perfect customer service and meets all your needs.

I really recommend this little pearl.

Charming, bright studio in Santa Monica

  • 5 of 5

Studio is bright, well-apointed, with everything one needs for a pleasant stay. Everything is provided, from bed linens, bath linens, and kitchen supplies. The studio looks out onto a lush, colorful garden with lots of beautiful flowers, shrubs, and trees. A 2-3 min. walk from uscale Montana Ave., with its stylish shops and many cafes and restaurants in the heart of Santa Monica.
