Great Location/Cute & Comfortable Bungalow

Review submitted: November 11, 2013   Date of arrival: October 16, 2013

My husband, best friend, and I enjoyed this bungalow and our stay in Santa Monica.
THE BUNGALOW: It was clean and pleasant. The two bedrooms were a little cramped, but with coaches and lots of seating areas. The t.v. was not in the den, but rather the main bedroom, which I found nice for socializing. It t.v. was of good quality, with digital cable. The den was spacious and had a beautiful view of flowers and trees. Charlie, the bungalow kitty, was very nice and loving. He didn't cry or bother us at all. The kitchen had a great sink and lots of dishes. The internet had no problems. There was sky lights in each bedroom and bathroom. This was nice for a warm glow throughout the bungalow, but it did make it very sunny in the mornings. We were okay with that, but if you need to sleep during the day, you may not like sunshine you can't shut off. But why would you sleep in California? Right!
AREA AROUND BUNGALOW: A quite neighborhood, and had no problems parking. I didn't hear any traffic or noise at all at night. Also, the bungalow was right next to a grocery store, that now has a Star Bucks! It was only 1-2 blocks away. The beach, Ocean View, was 8 blocks away. The beach parking was reasonably priced, and not hard to find a parking spot. I recommend renting a bike on the long bike trail that is on the beach. Don't rent outside of the bike trail, or you'll just have to carry it back with you home or if you have any issues you can't bike it back to the bike shop... just rent it on the bike trail, and you can bike for hours! We biked all over and from the Santa Monica Pier to Venice Beach. I didn't think I would enjoy Venice, but it really was fun to watch the skateboarders, muscle beach, and the stores had cheap souvenirs!
RESTAURANTS: We ate at "The Misfit" in Downtown Santa Monica one night. Parking was so cheap and it was very hip and cool! I am not sure if it would be kid friendly because downtown had a lot of homeless beggars, but we paid $2 to park and had a fun night! 4 blocks away was Main Street- has a lot of diners for breakfast and we really enjoyed every place we went. Some late night restaurants as well.
OWNER & RENTING: Kelly was easy to work with and she always responded in a timely manner. She returned our deposit with no problems. Everything went smoothly with our transactions with owner, Kelly.

Owners response: Lisa, thank you for this kind and thorough review! We look forward to having you back!

Cute, compact and convenient

Review submitted: October 1, 2013   Date of arrival: September 20, 2013

The Casita was perfect for us (2.) The garden was lovely, the place was clean and well-appointed, and it was within walking distance to the beach, Main Street shops and restaurants, and supermarket.
It turns out, we didn't need more room than we had! It's cozy and comfy. Bravo--and the cat is very laid-back!

Recommended for: age 55+, tourists without a car

Owners response: Pat, thanks for this sweet review!

Future guests: Pat stayed in my studio Casita, not in the Bungalow which is posted here. I can accommodate larger groups who decide to book both for more room and privacy!

The Bungalow and Casita are well-located. I rarely have a car when I'm home and walk everywhere. Grocery store is only a block away!

Santa Monica Area Sightseeing

Review submitted: July 1, 2013   Date of arrival: June 25, 2013

This is a nice cozy place to stay with a real welcome cat haha. We stayed here a few days and did some sightseeing around the area. There is a nice bar down the street called Cock 'n' Bull which my friend and I really liked since we are huge soccer fans and they play the games there. The beds are comfortable and we were able to park our car right out front. Easy to get to as its right off the main drag in santa monica. Checking in and out was very easy. The area is very quiet and peaceful and the decor makes for a relaxing stay. Thank you for accommodating us!
