The Garden Suite | 5 Star Santa Monica Vacation Rental

Santa Monica Los Angeles County

Great find for Santa Monica area.

  • 5 of 5
This VRBO was a pure delight. It was centrally located to shopping, groceries, restaurants. We were in town for a wedding and it was perfect. The gardens were lovely and so peaceful to come home to every day. The garden apt was exactly as described. It was so nice, clean and well maintained. We stayed for a week and I really felt like I go to know the area so well. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to spend time in Santa Monica area. Owner was very nice and helpful in anything that we needed. We have family living in LA and will most certainly be back to stay here. Thank you.

Clean and compact. The studio had everything I needed including a Pyrex measuring cup which I requested 2 stays ago! Thank you Mary Ann. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

The perfect place!

The Garden Suite was exactly as described and in the photos. It was very well maintained, we loved the garden, a great location, and the owner was very accommodating. We were there for a surgery my husband was having a UCLA, Santa Monica and it was the perfect place for recovery and a great neighborhood for walks. We would definitely return again and recommend it to friends or family.

A relaxing oasis

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for six weeks last spring whilst visiting our daughter/son in law/ granddaughter and new baby grandson.
After a busy day we were glad to return to our 'oasis of calm' as we called it.
We found everything we needed: lovely comfortable bed, good laundry facilities, well equipped kitchen and plenty of towels/linen etc.
The garden is lovely, a real home from home and a perfect place to relax.
The close proximity of the shops/cafes was very handy.
We will definitely make a return visit.
