Our New Santa Monica Home!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a charming place to stay with a great location to everything!!! We did not want to leave. Len was an awesome host and provided everything that we needed and more. The beach was a 3 minute walk and Len provided beach towels, chairs, an umbrella, and a cooler. There are plenty of bikes to chose from, which we rode to the Santa Monica Pier. Within minutes, you can walk up to see breathtaking views of the ocean and the surrounding area. You are minutes from the exciting Third Sreet Promenade. Very comfortable, quaint, and relaxing!!!! We cannot wait to return!!!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location and Len's hospitality simply made our vacation! Beautiful quiet neighborhood, 5 minutes walk from the Santa Monica beach and Palisades park, cozy comfortable and private place, small garden and a patio, a hot tub that we used every day - all of it was just "picture perfect" for our family. We could use bikes, umbrellas and beach chairs for free! Even our 15 years old daughter ( who are very hard to please) wants to come back next year to Len's place :)

Thank you Len for our amazing stay!

Great location shame about the small bathroom in need of a good clean

  • 2 of 5

The property is in an excellent location near to the beach and a lovely cycle ride to the pier and beyond. You are in the conservatory of the property the bed is okay but the arrangement for the third person is not great, so it would be best for a couple. The bathroom area is cramped with not really enough space to sit down on the toilet comfortably. The area is also in need of a proper clean, there is mould present and hair etc behind the door.

The hot tub is out in the deck and is maintained, someone came just before 7am to do this.

Owner's Response: Hi Andrew, Thank you for your feedback. We are taking steps to re-model the bathroom in order to create more space. This should be completed in the very near future. We know that this upgrade will be very well received by our future guests. Thank you, Len

My stay at the Patio Guestroom in Santa Monica

  • 5 of 5

I was lucky enough to find the patio guest room while I was in Santa Monica this past July. Not only was the price very affordable, I found the guest room very comfortable and charming. Len Guida was always accommodating as well as helpful. He has included everything that a guest could need to be comfortable, including a bottle of wine! The room is on the back of his home, and has a private entrance surrounded by a lovely deck and small garden. There is a hot tub that I used with my son and his family one night. I felt that I had plenty of privacy. It is located in an area of Santa Monica that is centrally located where I could walk to the beach, park, and shopping area. I would definitely recommend it for singles or a couple who are looking for an affordable way to enjoy a beautiful city.

Just like Home

  • 4 of 5

This rental is perfect if you want a no fuss no muss holiday. Better than a hotel! You have your own private patio that is resort like, where we enjoyed morning coffee every day, and dinner every night. This place is a gem. It has everything you need for the beach, including bicycles to get there! Also the washer dryer were an added bonus for a family who likes to pack light. Len was also very nice and helpful for questions and advise on the area. Lots of storage for your clothing and made us feel like we were not living out of our suitcases. I'll take a place like this ANY DAY over a stuffy boring hotel.

Great location, accommodating hosts!

  • 4 of 5

These guys are wonderful! Sweet, accommodating hosts in a great location. Getting four stars because the place is a bit dated and the bathroom difficult to maneuver in, small shower, sink over the toilet. Overall, a great time!
