Guestbook comments from the owner

The following is a review of The Loft House that appears on another vacation-rental website, word for word: "My wife and I and our teenage son (17) spent 8 wonderful nights at the Loft House. I wish there was a higher rating than 5 because this property and the owner (Deborah) fully deserve it. The house is beautifully designed and exceptionally appointed with great style and care. The location is on a quiet residential street close to Santa Monica and Venice/Marina Del Rey. We found it to be a perfect base for looking at colleges for our son. But what sets the Loft House apart is Deborah's amazing attention to detail and her wonderful customer service. She has added so many special touches, including an extensive restaurant binder, a DVD library, sleep masks, fresh ground coffee and even office supplies in the desk!! These touches made us feel that we were staying in a luxurious and chic hotel, but with the wonderful benefits of privacy, space and a gourmet kitchen. I have traveled pretty extensively and I honestly have not come across the perfect combination achieved at the Loft House - a beautiful property and superb customer service. We look forward to returning soon. I recommend the Loft House fully and without hesitation."



Owners Response: Our location is actually in the Heart of Santa Monica! We are walking distance to the Beach with its 22 mile bike/walk/skate path & Main Street with its array of great restaurants (i.e., Wolf Gang Puck), hip boutiques, coffee houses, yoga studios and a weekend farmer's market. We are also less than a 5 minute drive to the famous Santa Monica Pier, Third Street Promenade, Montana Ave. and the Venice Boardwalk.

A very welcome return to the Loft House

  • 5 of 5
Our apologies first of all to Deborah for not having submitted our review sooner!
This was our second visit to the Loft House and it felt just like coming home! The Loft House has everything that you could wish for to make your holiday a wonderful experience. Deborah always makes a point of visiting on the day after arrival-very much appreciated for information on our first visit, but just lovely to see her again on our second.
What struck us again on our return was the attention to detail. Deborah ensures that everything is of a high standard. The kitchen and bedrooms are a delight and the roof terrace was used frequently during our sunny fortnight's holiday!
For anyone thinking of going to the Loft House for the first time, Deborah provides masses of information, including local eateries and also supermarkets. We enjoyed resampling the delights of Wholefoods and we would thoroughly recommend M kitchen for excellent food.
As others have stated, the Loft House is ideally situated for reaching the beach-either a short drive or a walk if you're feeling a little more energetic!
We rarely revisit holiday spots but the Loft House tempted us back which says a great deal for Deborah and the standard of her property. Thank you again, Deborah.

Brillant spot, my family loved it. Location wise it is in a great neighbourhood with short walks to everything. But just away enough to be quiet. The loft itself is fabulous. Very clean with everything u need with supermarket mins away. Deborah provides lots of information which was very helpful

NEVER WANTED TO LEAVE - Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5
Words can’t describe the wonderful stay we had at The Loft House in Santa Monica. It was everything it described and more. It positioned perfectly for a stay in L.A. but even more perfectly for a relaxing stay near the beach, in a quiet relaxing atmosphere. Normally, when I go on vacation I tend to sleep in very late, and although this beautiful house encouraged tranquility and relaxation, the area itself drew me out and I looked forward each morning to a 10 minute walk to the charming Main Street area and the highly recommended Urth Café for Spanish Latte or Moroccan Mint Tea Latte, or wonderful breakfast. Then one more block brought me right to the beach. The weather was amazing, and the loft is situated in a way that it catches wonderful sea breezes from all sides. We enjoyed the very private sun porch and as other have mentioned, the special personal touches that Deborah has taken the time to include with recommendations to meet individual needs and tastes of her guests. We will be back and appreciate the new memories created at The Loft House in Santa Monica.

Perfect stay in LA

  • 5 of 5
The Loft House is a perfect location to explore the beautiful beaches of Santa Monica and to explore central LA. The owner Deborah was fabulous, from the initial enquiry to providing us with lots of information to assist us on our arrival.

The loft house has everything needed for a comfortable stay and is walking distance to great shopping, dining and the beach. We hired bikes from a shop down the road and cycled from Santa Monica to Venice Beach. The cycling tracks on the beach are fantastic so definitely recommend this way of beach hopping!!

The Loft House is situated in a fairly quite neighbourhood in the heart of Santa Monica. Santa Monica in my opinion has it all, the beach, the shops, the restaurants and a lovely atmosphere. Everywhere felt safe and we had a fab break.

Thank you for a wonderful stay.

A slice of heaven.

  • 5 of 5
This property is located in a quiet, residential are. The moment we walked into the Loft, we were greeted with a beautiful, bountiful fresh orchid arrangement and contemporary furnishings that begged for us to plop on after a long drive, and we did. The place was spotless, equipped with everything a home needs for daily use and comfort: a fully equipped kitchen, DVDs, and 2 satellite tvs with every channel available. The Loft includes a private entrance and a 2 car garage with a washer and dryer., and a private balcony. The spacious master bedroom has the most ingenious sliding opaque glass sliding doors that slide out from behind the closet on one side and the kitchen on the other side when needed for privacy. When they're closed, you have privacy, yet plenty of light. The linens were hotel quality and the beds couldn't have been more comfortable.

I felt the owners designed the space with families in mine (mine in particular,) not for renters. Kudos! The location was perfect as was the weather. We walked to the beach daily, as well as nice shopping, and wonderful restaurants to dine. We brunched at Urth (not a misspelling for Earth; the best cappuccino I ever had.

I can't rave enough about the Loft. If I could have given more than five stars, I would have. I love this place.

The Loft House is all you could ask for and more!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had never rented anything through VRBO or any other vacation by owner property so we were a bit leary at first. We had read all the wonderful reviews for this rental so decided to try it on a leap of faith.
Both our children are in LA working and going to school and my husband and i live in Washington state. Whenever we visit we rent two hotel rooms so we can all be together or we stay with family who, although graciously facilitate, don't truly posses the space for us all; so we end up either spending a fortune on hotels (which do not have the amenities of a home) or driving over 500 miles a weekto see everyone. I finally decided we needed a spacious place of our own where the kids could stay with us and we would have access to the beach, pier, shopping and dining! Could there possibly be a place? YES, THERE IS!

The Loft House is central to everything. If you are looking for a place with all the amenities of home plus more, and you need space for a family - look no further. From day one Deborah was professional and attentive to all our needs. From the time of booking until we drove away.

When we arrived I called Deborah as she requested and she came right over and introduced herself and answered all our questions. I felt like I had known her forever ;) I had also made the mistake of thinking the sofa in the living room turned into a bed - it is a two bedroom apartment but I have a 23 year old son and a 22 year old daughter, The sofa does not turn into a bed and when I asked Deborah if she had a inflatable mattress she quickly offered up their twin Aerobed complete with linens and comforter. My son slept comfortable all week. Visually the apartment is stunning. I usually do not give that distinction to may places but I have to here. My 23 yr. old son loved it so much he did not want to go back to his apartment.

The loft house is walking distance to great shopping, dining and the beach. We chose to drive to the beach because we wanted to bring along chairs but if you are just going for a walk it is perfect. We walked to Santa Monica and all of Venice without getting tired. Our favorite thing; get up early and walk over to Urth Cafe and get our morning muffin and Spanish Coffee. The Loft House is situated in a quite neighborhood in the heart of Santa Monica which is EXACTLY the atmosphere we were looking for. Bus line is right down the street if you want to use public transportation. Thank you Deborah for a WONDERFUL setting. WE WILL BE BACK!

Our loft-style home is perfectly located and is an ideal base for living in Los Angeles. We are located in the heart of Santa Monica, in a quiet residential area walking distance to the white sandy beaches with its 22 mile walk / bike / rollerblade path. We are also a short walk to Main Street, one of the area's most popular destinations for upscale eateries and hip boutiques. We are within 1 mile of Venice & the Venice Boardwalk (famous for its cast of characters, street vendors & performers), the Santa Monica Pier (complete with a Ferris wheel, 1922 carousel, amusement park & dining), 3rd Street Promenade (movie theaters, Farmer's Markets, terrific shopping, dining & engaging street performers), and Montana Avenue (frequented by affluent Angelinos & celebrities). We are only 20 minutes from LAX, 15 minutes to Beverly HIlls, 25 minutes to either Hollywood, Malibu or Universal Studios, and Disneyland is only a short 45 minutes away.
