traveler reviews for this santa monica studio rental

Good find in Santa Monica

Review submitted: August 10, 2014   Date of arrival: June 26, 2014

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

Recommended for: age 55+, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners 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

Review submitted: July 21, 2014   Date of arrival: July 3, 2014

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!

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Jason, so glad you had a great time! Appreciate your sweet compliment about my fast communication...And so glad you enjoyed where the Casita is located! That's one of my favorite things about my home. You are always welcome back...The people who stay here are really interesting travelers!

Lovely quaint room

Review submitted: April 22, 2014   Date of arrival: April 16, 2014

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!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, tourists without a car

Owners response: Ellen, thanks for the kind words -- and for the charming photo of Charley cuddling with your son you sent me! We'd (Wendy, me and especially Charley!) would love to have you back!

~ Kelly
