                                                          Oustanding, private and perfectly located place for two.

                                                          Peter L.

                                                          The location in a very nice part of Santa Monica was ideal for my wife and I. At the end of the block is Montana Avenue with its array of small shops, restaurants, groceries and banks. The location also allows you to avoid congested freeways by easily navigating city streets. The apartment itself is a very cute and clean private spot in the midst of a beautifully landscaped garden. With comfortable furnishings and enough room for two people -- nice kitchen, bathroom, closets, TV w/DVD player it is a great alternative to staying in a hotel. The apartment is very quiet with good A/C and heat as well. We strongly recommend this location as a calm, pretty, unique and conveniently located place to stay.

                                                          The Best of the Best

                                                          Jeffrey M.

                                                          A great studio so well furnished and had everything we needed. A five star property the gardens were beautiful. Absolutely the best location in Santa Monica. Everything within in walking distance-just park the car and forget about it.

                                                          Garden Oasis

                                                          Has everything you need to work or play in the area. Central location for everything in the area without having to get on a clogged freeway. Close to grocery shopping and a short trip to the beach from here. Garden area is wonderful and a nice way to be welcomed back each day or even spend some quiet time doing work. WiFi was solid. Had all the cookware and appliances needed for a longer stay.

                                                          Always the Best

                                                          norrie e.

                                                          I hesitate to write this because i don't want the place to get too popular.I've stayed at the Garden Suite many times for several years now and each time it gets better and better. The garden, of course, is glorious and a perfect place to read and quietly work. In fact, I accomplish in my month here than at home-it's that peaceful. Everything about the Garden Suite is five stars, but I'd give Mary Ann, the owner, ten if I could. I happened to mention that the wifi was slow and she immediately installed the latest, state of the art equipment, thus making everything perfect. She's welcoming and warm and will make your stay exactly what you want it to be.

                                                          Clean, Neat everything that the review said.

                                                          Adam C.

                                                          I was impressed from the moment that I stepped on the property. The only problem is that I could hear the upstairs neighbor as they were walking. And that was the only problem!

                                                          Perfect Getaway

                                                          Teri O.

                                                          The Garden Suite is tucked away in a lush, private setting ... yet centrally-located near shops, restaurants, and the beach! The studio is comfortable and equipped with everything you need for a long-term stay. We stayed for 2 weeks and loved it. Mary Ann was welcoming and helpful and answered all our questions. You would be hard-pressed to find something comparable for the price in this section of Santa Monica. We would definitely recommend and return!
