About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
We have just spent over a month at Mary Ann's 'Garden Hideaway' as a base for exploring Santa Monica and the Los Angeles area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The apartment is small but well-designed to include all the facilities we needed; plenty of closet space, a well-equipped kitchen, a good bathroom and a bedroom with a large and very comfortable bed. The location is quiet and the second-floor windows overlook a well-stocked garden.
We didn't hire a car but found a very extensive bus network took us everywhere we wanted to go. Seniors could go anywhere on the 'Big Blue Bus' network for just 50 cents a ride whilst the red Metro buses only charged Seniors 25 cents a ride 'off-peak' and 55 cents a ride during rush hours. Bus rides took us to Malibu, Redondo Beach, Downtown L.A., the San Fernando Valley as well as Beverly Hills and Hollywood Blvd. We also recorded some 230 miles on our pedometer!
We enjoyed a great winter holiday and found the Mary Ann's Garden Hideaway a very agreeable place to stay at, for which we thank her.

Home away from home
Plenty of space and a great location within easy reach of shops and restaurants (in case tonight's not a cook night)
