Guestbook comments from the owner

"Wonderful family home"

My family and I came from UK, having directing a movie for several months in la, and walked into a house with,

not only everything we needed right there, but stunning decor, a feeling of warmth, light and familiarity, that made us feel as if we belonged. It was home!

The front outside garden, is breathtaking, but secure as front patio is enclosed. We have 2 young children,

who played happily and constantly in it, as well as a lovely backyard and deck.

We had film clients over for BBQ's, and generally made this wonderful place our own very quickly, for those months.

The home is located near absolutely everything, including walking to Whole Foods, or to my favorite restaurant, on Wilshire.

Many, many visits the Beach, the marvelous children's playgrounds and parks nearby, made this an incredible place to work (wifi, internet),

and relax and indulge in the good Santa Monica life, in this spectacular home we found.

So reluctant to leave, but we know where we belong, when we need to return. We miss it!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5
We just finished spending two months at this house, and our stay was fabulous for many reasons. First, the location cannot be beat. It is close enough to the beach to walk or ride a bike (less than two miles) but far enough away that you avoid the congestion and horrible traffic of the beach. It is also in a beautiful residential neighborhood that is a short walk to the shops on Montana. Second, the house is great. We really enjoyed the beautiful garden area and the spacious accommodations. We had guests stay almost every weekend, and it never felt crowded. Third, we liked that the house had the charm of a lived-in home, rather than the feeling of a sterile rental. And it was stocked with everything you might need from cooking spices, to scotch tape, a stapler, and laundry detergent. Finally, our host Susan was fabulous! She thought of every detail, recommended restaurants, and even e-mailed us a coupon for on! We felt like it was our home, and that was due in large part to Susan's welcoming and warm attitude. We give this place our highest recommendation, and if Susan ever wanted to sell it, we would buy it.

Delightful house in Santa Monica

  • 5 of 5
I was delighted with my stay in this charming home. The property is a delight with both a pretty front garden, deck and large well planted private garden to the rear. The interior has been thoughtfully decorated and the feel of a family home whilst being very smart. All the rooms sport interesting and exquisite art works giving the interior an exceptional feel unlike some blander holiday properties. Everything one could need is catered for and I could happily had stayed for a year. The property and yard are spotlessly clean. Santa Monica is packed with fabulous restaurants and cafes and the beach is nearby.
The owner Susan is wonderful, happy to help and advise and great fun.
I would thoroughly recommend this lovely home to all my friends and work colleagues.

Wonderful Oasis

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time with our 2 young daughters 2+5 years old. perfectly nestled within walking distance between a school playground and a wonderful park with ducks, playgrounds, lawns for picnics etc. wholefoods walkable.
The house is fantastic for families with kids, great layout and comfortable, reminds me of a country B&B with a Southwestern flair. the pictures don't do it full justice and Susan has been an absolute Peach to interact with! Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Hi Bernhard, been away and just saw this. Thank you for your wonderful words regarding the SM house. I could say you and your beautiful family were a delight-A "Peach" of a group-Joking aside,
would be wonderful to have you back whenever Chicago gets too unbearable weather-wise. Your home will await. Again, thank you so much for doing this review!

Owner's Response: I just saw your lovely review, Laura! Thank you so much for your kind words as well as passing it on to my site. I am so thrilled you "girls" had such a wonderful time and that you more or less took it on blind faith, that this would be a great place to enjoy all that Santa Monica holds, plus a retreat to kick back and relax (most important).
It means so much to me that it all worked out so well. Anxious for a return engagement in the future. Warm regards, Susan

Beautiful Oasis

  • 5 of 5
I am a writer for a well-known TV personality and was working on a project for several weeks in LA. I heard about this house from another writer who had stayed here. I wanted to find a place that felt as if I were "home"—not some generic hotel room. He assured me this was it. I needed to have a calm, comfortable atmosphere to work and write. My family was with me so I also needed it to be a safe, secure environment for our two toddlers.

Between the decor, cool art work, and landscaping, we immediately adjusted to the warmth, comfort, and creative atmosphere of the home. All of the necessities were taken care of, making our stay stress-free and feel as though we'd been living there a long time.

Location-wise, the house is at the center of all that Santa Monica has to offer: boutiques on Montana Avenue, the farmers market, Whole Foods, Bergamot art galleries, beautiful parks, restaurants, and the beach—all just minutes away.

I highly recommend this wonderful house for families, for people who are there to work (and relax afterwards), or just for a fantastic vacation home to get away from it all. We loved our stay!

Inspirational Retreat

  • 5 of 5
I direct short films and commercials for advertising and so I travel quite a lot. Long ago I learned that living and working out of a hotel room is not conducive to really being able to focus on my creative projects. Instead I choose to stay in rented homes throughout the world. When I know I'm going to travel to the Los Angeles area my first call is to check and see if this property is available. Situated in a very quiet area of Santa Monica it remains minutes from everything I need and everywhere I need to be. But more than that, this is a home. Tastefully decorated with a global flair and wonderfully and lovingly maintained, I always fantasize about living there permanently.
After the fast paced, high energy environments that surround me all day, there is nothing better than to arrive back "home" to soak in the warm intimacy of this space.
I can't say enough good things about the experience.

Amenities

From the Owner

I've only had long term renters who were always in entertainment business, and therefore used to having it all-so the house is fully equipped for every need. It's not ever been an income property in the sense that most of them are sparse and casually done. This is a true HOME, wood burning fire place, top of the line appliances and completely enclosed so that children can't wander off. Patios surround it, and the French doors open on to them. Backyard has a fantastic environment to lounge and cook and have guests. A great place to call home and feel as if it genuinely is one!
