traveler reviews for this santa monica studio rental

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!

Amaaaaaazing Casita

Review submitted: November 14, 2013   Date of arrival: November 8, 2013

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!!!

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

Owners 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!

~ Kelly

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...

Great Location

Review submitted: August 21, 2013   Date of arrival: August 12, 2013

My girlfriend and i went to the casita for about 5 days. We fell in love with the Santa Monica aera.The beach is at a short walk from the casita,you have shows on the pier every thursdays from 7 to 10 p.m.If you want to surf the waves are perfect,if you want to eat or go shopping you are close to the great shopping streets.The shared backyard is nice and comes with a friendly cat.

Recommended for: tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Marco, so glad you choose to stay with us for your special holiday. Thank you for the sweet review. I know Italy is a long way, but we hope you can come back!

~ Kelly

P.S. Glad you had a chance to go to the SM Pier concert. It's a really incredible FREE event every Thu night during the summer.
