We have just spent over a month at Mary Ann's 'Garden Hideaway' as a base for exploring Santa Monica and the Los Angeles area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The apartment is small but well-designed to include all the facilities we needed; plenty of closet space, a well-equipped kitchen, a good bathroom and a bedroom with a large and very comfortable bed. The location is quiet and the second-floor windows overlook a well-stocked garden.
We didn't hire a car but found a very extensive bus network took us everywhere we wanted to go. Seniors could go anywhere on the 'Big Blue Bus' network for just 50 cents a ride whilst the red Metro buses only charged Seniors 25 cents a ride 'off-peak' and 55 cents a ride during rush hours. Bus rides took us to Malibu, Redondo Beach, Downtown L.A., the San Fernando Valley as well as Beverly Hills and Hollywood Blvd. We also recorded some 230 miles on our pedometer!
We enjoyed a great winter holiday and found the Mary Ann's Garden Hideaway a very agreeable place to stay at, for which we thank her.
The suite is ideal for a comfortable stay in Santa Monica. A block to the Montana Village - but tucked away in a garden courtyard seemingly miles from the noise, crowds and traffic of LA. I can't imagine a better location or more appealing apartment. This is everything you need for a quality vacation in Santa Monica. Check the Aero Theatre for retrospective movie nights - you might meet a star or two from the golden years of Hollywood...or Ben Affleck.
Set up beautifully. Walk in - and enjoy Santa Monica.
Internet speed very, very slow.
This was my first stay in this rental property, and I had a terrific experience. For the past 5 years, I have stayed in a different Home Away property in Santa Monica a few blocks away (at Montana and 14th) and I was honestly a little hesitant to try a new place. I am really glad I did. Even though this rental is a bit smaller than what I'm used to, it didn't matter in the least. The unit is tucked away (along with a few others) in a separate building in the backyard of a beautiful home on 17th Street in the heart of what is arguably the best neighborhood in Santa Monica. The studio is clean, nicely decorated, and has everything you need. There are supermarkets, restaurants, and all kinds of shops within easy walking distance -- and if you like to walk as much as I do, then you can enjoy a nice long stroll to the ocean/beach. The only minor downside is the parking: anyone can park on this block of 17th Street -- no parking permits are required -- which means it can be challenging, at certain times, to find a spot nearby. That being said, I stayed in this unit for five weeks and I only experienced this problem a handful of times. (I had to park a few blocks away a couple of times, and I had to drive around the area for 15 minutes before I found an open parking spot on two other occasions.) Other than this one issue, though, everything about this property is perfection. It really felt like a "home away from home," and I really hope I have the chance to return soon.
I had to find a place quickly for work in LA and I am so glad I picked this little garden Hideaway. it made my stay in La perfect !
It was wonderful after a long hard work week to be so close to the beach for long walks and have fabulous shopping and restaurants so close by.
my husband and I can't wait to go back but this time not for work just pkay!!!
Thank you for a wonderful stay and fond memories.
I had work in LA and needed to find a place fast. I picked just the right place!
It was quiet, peaceful and just perfect.
After a long work week I would walk to the beach and the great shops on the weekend.
It was so delightful and fun.
I liked it so much my husband and I can't wait to go back but this time not for work just for fun.
Thank you, you left us with fond memories.
I stayed in the Garden Hideaway and it was absolutely perfect. I was looking for a quiet, peaceful place to recover from surgery, and I found it. It was clean, comfortable and the garden just beautiful. Mary Ann was a most gracious host, and it is clear she cares for and loves her surroundings. I didn't want to leave. Thank you!
