Good find in Santa Monica

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in Kelly's casita in ocean park in Santa Monica. It is definitely not upscale but is a cute and comfortable little place with everything we needed for our stay in this great location. We were in the area for a wedding but walked through the really cute neighborhood to the beaches everyday - ocean park, Santa Monica and Venice. Would have loved a bike ride to Malibu if we had stayed longer. Thanks for letting us stay

Owner's Response: Kathy & Chuck, come on back for that bike ride! Thanks for the sweet compliment. I like to keep the Casita simple and affordable in this increasingly expensive neighborhood near the beach!

Casita Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My Girlfriend and I stayed here over the 4th of July weekend and absolutely loved it. Kelly who rents it out was very responsive in her communication with us and gave a very welcoming vibe. She gave great recommendations of restaurants and other features of the area which we found very useful. Location is absolutely amazing, 8 blocks from the beach right in between Santa Monica and Venice Beach. I didn't use my car once the 3 days we were there. The Casita where we stayed was perfect for a couple and had everything we needed. The courtyard area outside was perfect to sip coffee and mimosas in the morning. There were guests in the other rental when we arrived, an adorable young couple from Sidney and there 3 kids who we played some card games with and then another family came the last day who were just as nice. Friendly setting but there is still plenty of privacy in the Casita. Simply can't beat the price and location, felt like a local after the first day. Would for sure stay there again next time I visit!! Thanks Kelly and Wendy!

SO happy with my stay here!

  • 5 of 5
I was thrilled to find the Casita online. First of all, it was affordable. Then, my communication with the owner was easy, thorough, and friendly during my reservation process. Upon arrival at the casita I couldn't stop smiling! I just needed a safe, clean, small place to stay on my trip to Santa Monica - and this hit the mark! I kept saying "This is SO cute!" The casita was homey and clean and had everything I needed! It was also wonderful to have access to a laundry room during my stay. It was fun to walk and bike around Santa Monica - and wonderful to come home to this adorable place every night! I 100% recommend this to anyone going to Santa Monica who is in need of a quaint, homey place!!!

Lovely quaint room

  • 4 of 5
My six year old and I had a lovely 5 night stay at the Casita. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it isn't fancy and I didn't want to mislead people who are looking for that kind of lodging. However, it's clean with a comfy bed, a perfectly nice kitchenette and a good shower. The room is small but there are several chairs and a table outside in the backyard (the yard is secured with a gate that locks with a code which will give parents with wee ones peace of mind). It's definitely basic -- the carpeting isn't new and the finishings are homey -- but it is a great place to sleep and have breakfast before heading out for they day (there is also a good TV with cable and internet). We did not have a car this trip (our friends picked us up for our adventures together and we spent most of our waking hours out with them). The property is in a very sweet neighborhood and is an easy walk to the beach and Main street and close to bus lines. Charley the Cat is a delight and Kelly and Wendy are attentive and warm with very quick response time.
We'll be back!

Amaaaaaazing Casita

  • 5 of 5
I can't even begin to say how amazing this little place was, I was so in love with it the minute my boyfriend and I walked through the gate! The studio was roomy for the both of us and the kitchen had everything we needed, the bathroom was a decent size and the bed was amazingly comfortable! This place also has keyless entry, you just put in the code and you're in, which was great so you don't have to worry about losing keys!

Parking on the street was normally never a problem and even when we had to park a bit away, it took two minutes to walk back, no big deal.

We pretty much walked everywhere during our stay because that's how close the beach, restaurants, shops, the piers, everything, it's all close and within walking distance and such a safe neighborhood! I walked by myself at night a few times and never felt safer.

The weather was beautiful and the little yard outside was so adorable, we sat out there every night and drank wine.

Oh and the cat! My boyfriend fell in love with the cat Charley, so much he wanted to take him home! Such a friendly little cat with a great personality.

I just can't say enough good things about this place, we looooooved it so much that we already want to book it again for next year!!!

Lastly, Kelly, the owner is super fantastic, she responds quickly to emails and is very informative and makes you feel comfortable, which was key is us booking this from the get go. Can't wait to come back!!!

Owner's Response: Briana, thanks for the lovely review! Very cute that your boyfriend sent Charley a little gift afterward. That was so sweet! You were a lot of fun to email with and we look forward to your return next year!

P.S. When I'm home these days, I'm carless and walk everywhere. My location is one of my favorite things about my home! Glad you had fun...
