Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Teresa

Thank you so much. We had a great stay at the house. Everything we needed was there. The decorating was lovely and efficient, except that green chair that we could not sit in that. But the beach chairs were great. We used one in the house. The outside area was what sold me on the property when I looked at the website. It was everything I expected and more. So comfortable and so private.

Thank you again

Quiet, clean and a great location

  • 4 of 5
We have rented Teresa'a lovely cottage two times. It is very clean, tastefully furnished with plenty of closet space. The location is excellent for it is a 5 minute walk to the beach. There is a wonderful farmers market with live music and great food on Sundays. The locals gather there for fun and relaxation. Main Street with many coffee shops is very relaxed and never crowded. Teresa and David are very reachable and responded to our needs.
I recommend their cottage for a comfortable and quiet stay!

Really wonderful place!

Great house, great hosts, great location! House was bright, beds were comfortable, neighborhood was safe and fun. We had plenty of room for our family of four, including an 11 and 8 year old. Beach is right down the hill and the hosts provide bikes you can use. The front garden has a talk hedge surrounding it that gives a nice level of privacy. Overall a really great rental that we would love to return to!

Very clean, comfortable beds, plenty of amenities and a great location made our stay very enjoyable. Owner was very accessible even though we experienced no problems whatsoever. Pictures and description were very accurate. Just a few blocks to Main Street restaurants and shops. Walking distance to the pier, 3rd Street Mall, Venice Beach and numerous parks.

Fantastic property in Santa Monica

  • 3 of 5
Lovely apartment, with everything you could ever need for a stay in Santa Monica. In a very quiet and ideal location - everything is in very each reach - the wonderful beach, the famous pier and shopping & eating at Third St Promenade. Also, very easy to get the freeways to explore LA. From our initial enquiry to booking process & arrival - everything ran very smoothly and the owner always answered emails & queries very efficiently and promptly. We would certainly recommend to all - a week just wasn't long enough!.

Very comfortable and homely

  • 5 of 5
This is a great little find in a quiet little neighbourhood just minutes away from thriving downtown Santa Monica. We received a warm welcome from the owners and were made very comfortable. This small bungalow offers a cosy little retreat from the busyness of the LA area. It is like being at home. Everything was clean and tidy on arrival.

The key to this place is park the car and walk (or take the bus). The walk into downtown feels a little busy as you cross the bridge over the 24 lane highway (exaggeration) but once you are there, its lively with great restaurants, bars and shops. The walk down to the beach front is more pleasant through the side streets and it is a beautful stroll down the promenade to the pier.

This is a great way to visit Santa Monica and west LA. Forget the faceless and expensive hotels, come and feel like part of the community. Its the best way to relax into the SoCal way of life.

From the Owner

We are a busy family but we always have time for guests who need a little extra help. We have booked Laker tickets for the family who had a problem with their credit card, recommended doctors and given a lovely Italian family a ride to airport because they were have trouble navigating the freeway.
