Cute Bungalow close to everything!

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.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Dear Potential Guests,

This is a very sweet review, but it is posted at the wrong listing. These folks stayed in my 2-BR Bungalow. So, please note: The Hideaway is for 2 people maximum and is a single-room studio.

However, everything they say about the neighborhood, restaurants, cable, internet and (hopefully!) me applies to the Hideaway, as well.

I appreciate the kind and thorough review!

~ Kelly

We loved the Hideaway!

Review submitted: August 1, 2013   Date of arrival: July 23, 2013

My best friend and I traveled to Santa Monica, our favorite place, and were delighted with the Hideaway. The name of the place is so appropriate because we truly felt like we were hiding--it was so private and quiet.

We stayed for 6 days: walking around town and to the beach, relaxing, and visiting with Charley--who really did come by to check on us!

Kelly was great; she shared so much advice about the area's hotspots and ensured that the rental process easy and stress-free. And Wendy, the property manager, was very warm and accommodating.

If you want to live like a local, this is the spot for you! We will be back next summer!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car

Owners response: Mindy, thank you for such a warm review! We'll look forward to seeing you next summer. I'm so glad you had fun with Charley, my cat, and the photo you sent was really cute!

I'm in the process of updating the nearby restaurant list. Any you think I should add?

A Very Pleasant Stay

Review submitted: August 3, 2012   Date of arrival: July 21, 2012

The highlight of my Santa Monica visit was spending time with my nieces and their families (at the beach, in the park, on the pier, at Disneyland, and seeing my niece perform at the Disney Concert Hall), but Charley comes in a close second. The studio is small but comfortable, clean and well laid out with everything I needed for a week's stay. Thanks.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car

Owners response: Arnie, I'm so honored my cat comes in a close second to seeing your talented niece perform at Disney Concert Hall! He is a funny cat, and I'm so glad you two had "quality" time together.

Thank you for the kind comments. Come back any time!
