Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Susan,



We had a great time in Santa Monica, and we enjoyed our stay at your house.



Sorry, I left some cupcakes in the frig (not as sorry as my daughters!).



Thank you.



Sincerely,

Terry

Well done

  • 5 of 5

Susan's guest house provided an excellent base for our L.A. activities. It proved to be spotless and there were no points to improve on that I can cite. The walking proximity to several areas (Main St. Santa Monica, Lincoln Blvd) made it a desirable location, ie Whole Foods/CVS 10 min walk. Susan's communications with me were prompt and professional and there were absolutely no ambiguities with regards to anything related to our stay. Furthermore, her listing was extremely accurate and everything was precisely as it appeared in the photos/description.

Cheers,

PW

Loved it here!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was just perfect for our family of four + Shelby our pooch! Tucked behind the main house, it provided the perfect homebase for our trip. We were able to pack light because we knew that the cottage had all of the conveniences of home, including a washer and dryer, and beach towels to boot! We enjoyed BBQing and dining on the deck a few nights when the temperature was a comfortable 72°. Just seven blocks up the street was the beach and Main Street which is littered with restaurants and shops! Great location and great little cottage!! My youngest was sad to leave the house! We would definitely stay here again!

Fun time in Santa Monica!

  • 4 of 5

Nice house. Tad small with 5 people. Perhaps more instructions about nearby places to eat, visit, etc. Location was good but a bit far to walk to the beach. It was well kept and clean. Ralphs and whole foods nearby was good. Had dinner on outside terrace, fun.

Accommodation was as described

  • 4 of 5

This house met our standards in that it looked like the photos and was very clean. A slight problem came when we tried to get onto the Internet. It worked in the living room but not in the bedrooms. The location was within walking distance to the beach, pier and restaurants. The owner was invisible until the morning we were leaving. She came to the door and asked us to leave because her maid was ready to clean. Her request, although valid, was a bit on the chilly side. She never asked us if we enjoyed our stay. It was a bit off-putting.

Owner's Response: I'm so happy you found my guesthouse/cottage very clean and within walking distance to the beautiful Santa Monica beach, Santa Monica Pier and restaurants! I'm very glad I was able to accommodate your early check-in request due to your early arrival into LAX. I apologize I was not able to accommodate your late departure, check-out is at 10:30am in order to provide sufficient time for my housekeeper to clean, restock and launder for the next guests, a sometimes stressful process when there are time constraints, as we want all guests to find the cottage as clean as you did. We respect the privacy of our guests, I apologize if that was not your liking.

Great spot, Cottage was lovely and well stocked, big outdoor deck.

This property was just as advertised, with nice furnishings, well equipped kitchen and a big outdoor deck. It was walking distance to the beach and Main Street Santa Monica, parking is reasonably easy.

Wonderful spot!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location. Santa Monica is beautiful! We rented a car but you can Uber everywhere too! The car rental right around the corner! Lots of restarants nearby. The house was immaculate! Wifi was ok but keep checking to make sure your still on the wifi. It went out in back bedrooms. Nice comfy beds! Wonderful place! We will definitely go back!
