Guestbook comments from the owner

The following is a review of The Loft House that appears on another vacation-rental website, word for word: "My wife and I and our teenage son (17) spent 8 wonderful nights at the Loft House. I wish there was a higher rating than 5 because this property and the owner (Deborah) fully deserve it. The house is beautifully designed and exceptionally appointed with great style and care. The location is on a quiet residential street close to Santa Monica and Venice/Marina Del Rey. We found it to be a perfect base for looking at colleges for our son. But what sets the Loft House apart is Deborah's amazing attention to detail and her wonderful customer service. She has added so many special touches, including an extensive restaurant binder, a DVD library, sleep masks, fresh ground coffee and even office supplies in the desk!! These touches made us feel that we were staying in a luxurious and chic hotel, but with the wonderful benefits of privacy, space and a gourmet kitchen. I have traveled pretty extensively and I honestly have not come across the perfect combination achieved at the Loft House - a beautiful property and superb customer service. We look forward to returning soon. I recommend the Loft House fully and without hesitation."



Owners Response: Our location is actually in the Heart of Santa Monica! We are walking distance to the Beach with its 22 mile bike/walk/skate path & Main Street with its array of great restaurants (i.e., Wolf Gang Puck), hip boutiques, coffee houses, yoga studios and a weekend farmer's market. We are also less than a 5 minute drive to the famous Santa Monica Pier, Third Street Promenade, Montana Ave. and the Venice Boardwalk.

Our loft-style home is perfectly located and is an ideal base for living in Los Angeles. We are located in the heart of Santa Monica, in a quiet residential area walking distance to the white sandy beaches with its 22 mile walk / bike / rollerblade path. We are also a short walk to Main Street, one of the area's most popular destinations for upscale eateries and hip boutiques. We are within 1 mile of Venice & the Venice Boardwalk (famous for its cast of characters, street vendors & performers), the Santa Monica Pier (complete with a Ferris wheel, 1922 carousel, amusement park & dining), 3rd Street Promenade (movie theaters, Farmer's Markets, terrific shopping, dining & engaging street performers), and Montana Avenue (frequented by affluent Angelinos & celebrities). We are only 20 minutes from LAX, 15 minutes to Beverly HIlls, 25 minutes to either Hollywood, Malibu or Universal Studios, and Disneyland is only a short 45 minutes away.

Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer :)

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience renting a home instead of staying in a hotel. It was well worth it!

First off, Hats off to the Owners!! I can't say enough about them! Deborah was the perfect host. She was there to make sure we were Happy! She made us feel that this was our home, & if we needed anything we knew we could call her for assistance.

The home itself was beyond gorgeous, we just didn't want to leave! The pictures don't really do it justice. It was clean and so beautifully appointed. It was also stocked with so many amenities that I just didn't expect... it’s beautifully and stylishly decorated with a comfortable sofa, cozy cushions and rugs, and thoughtful decorative touches everywhere you look. It is clear that a lot of care and love has gone into the creation of this space, and you feel that it's important to the owners for the experience to be both special and at the same time for you to feel like you are at home. They certainly succeeded in that regard!

The home itself is situated in a beautiful, quiet, neighborhood , near the beach area and the Promenade with so many shops and restaurants close by. We walked quite a bit, day and evening, and it felt very safe.

We will definitely be back It really was an absolute delight to stay at this lovely townhouse, we just can't wait to return again! Sonya

I could never imagine staying anywhere more perfect in Santa Monica.

Wonderful Stay at The Loft House! Never Wanted to Leave!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 3 nights in this wonderful Loft House in Santa Monica! Perfect for four people, the house is even better than the pictures! The house is immaculate and very well equipped. Deborah has made sure the Loft House has all the conveniences and comforts of home. The location is fantastic too – very close to the Santa Monica beaches, and it’s also just a short jump over to Venice beach too, and minutes from 3rd Street Promenade and Abbott Kinney. The Loft House is also truly very central to so many popular attractions and sites. With Deborah's help we were able to navigate quite easily over to Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Universal City, etc… Wish we could have stayed longer! Will definitely book this again next time we are in Santa Monica and I highly recommend The Loft House to anyone visiting the area

Mother Daughter trip

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice but could been a little cleaner, As for the location reading about the house thought it was closer to the pier and beach. So a car is definitely needed. The neighborhood is quiet and we did feel safe walking in the evening.

It was a very fun filled week in Santa Monica

Stunning! A Perfect Holiday Home in Every Way!!! 5 Star All the Way!

  • 5 of 5

Words can’t describe the wonderful stay we had at The Loft House in Santa Monica. It was everything as described and more. It is a stunning property and is exactly as is shown on the website. We loved it!! Everything about the property is of the highest standard and Deborah takes such care to ensure the comfort of her guests.

The home was immaculate, spotless, and extremely well furnished, from a blender in the kitchen for our daily smoothies, to a thoroughly stocked work desk upstairs at the loft level to a bathroom filled with towels in abundance! The décor was Zen, beautiful and amazingly up to date (granite, stainless in the kitchen, tile/marble in the bathroom), and the beds were oh so comfy (high quality bedding, high thread count, lots of poof and fluff). The wireless internet available was a screamingly fast FiOS connection—better than anything we have at our own home, and being able to record TV on their DVR was an unexpected surprise. We enjoyed the very private sun porch and as other have mentioned, the special personal touches that Deborah has taken the time to include with recommendations to meet individual needs and tastes of her guests for shopping and dining. We visited several of Deborah's recommendations for dining and had super meals in all of them. One of our favourite places was Wholefoods Grocery Store. Try a visit - it's an experience in itself!

Although this beautiful house encouraged tranquility and relaxation, the area itself drew us out and we looked forward each morning to a 10 minute walk to the charming Main Street area and the highly recommended Urth Café for Spanish Latte or Moroccan Mint Tea Latte, or wonderful breakfast. Then one more block brought us right to the beach. The weather was amazing, and the loft is situated in a way that it catches wonderful sea breezes from all sides.

If we owned a home as nice as this, I think we’d be afraid to let anyone rent it from us (and kudos’ to Deborah and her husband for being able to “let go” and trust enough to make it available to others). We have family living in the LA area, and plan to come back again, and again.

Nice Home, missing neccessities

  • 2 of 5

We rented this property for 8 days. The house was very nice, had a great lay out and was in a good location with a 20-ish minute walk to the beach. The house was well equipped with kitchen supplies, beach stuff, and linens; however, there was not any cleaning supplies. Staying for 8 days without anything to use to clean, sweep, etc wasn't the greatest, especially after beach days. The micro-suede couch looked pretty dirty as did the carpet, which probably aren't the best fabrics for a rental (and no vacuum to clean the carpet). As much as hiring the cleaner during the week is an option, the house was pricey enough and cleaning up after yourself isn't difficult if the materials are there. Finally, the house did not have air conditioning. Although it wasn't that hot out, it was very humid, which led to everything (including our clothes etc) being damp and dank. Overall the house was decent.

Owner's Response: Our 75+ five-star reviews speak for themselves: the review above is simply untrue, and this guest is expressing sour grapes. The real story, and what was left out, is that is that this guest’s infant son accidentally urinated on our ultra suede couch. My husband and housekeeper discovered the pungent and unmistakable odor and wetness at 11am on the morning this guest departed. Since I had another guest arriving this same day at 4pm, I had to scramble to find a professional couch cleaning company able to clean the couch immediately. Luckily, I was able to have the couch cleaned that afternoon. When I notified our departing guest that I needed to charge her for cleaning the couch, she became very angry and went into complete denial that there was no way her baby had peed on our couch. She wrote me two very mean-spirited, defensive emails to that end. We never had a resolution. I wish all to know that I am an extremely honest person and would never charge a guest extra for a cleaning they did not cause. In fact, since 2008 when I began renting The Loft House, I have only needed to use our guest’s damage deposit two other times. I will only charge for damage to our guest house that is beyond normal wear and tear. All in all – please know dear guests, that The Loft House does have many cleaning supplies: Windex, granite cleaner, dishwashing soap, dishwasher soap, laundry soap and a broom and dustpan, along with two very powerful floor and desk fans. The above review is simply misleading and untrue.

We loved it!!! Great location, clean, owners were very helpful.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the loft house. Would highly recommend it. Perfect location, plenty of great restaurants to eat at (which were very nicely cataloged by the owner). The loft house was spacious, clean and well stocked with dishes for cooking if you wanted to.

The beach was fabulous and within walking distance. Just a great overall place to stay and so much to do!!
