About the Owner

We have lived in Santa Monica for over 25 years. My daughter has just gone off to college and my son is a freshman at Santa Monica High School. We are originally from the UK. We love the relaxing beach atmosphere; farmers markets and restaurant varieties in Santa Monica; a great place for foodies.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Teresa

Thank you so much. We had a great stay at the house. Everything we needed was there. The decorating was lovely and efficient, except that green chair that we could not sit in that. But the beach chairs were great. We used one in the house. The outside area was what sold me on the property when I looked at the website. It was everything I expected and more. So comfortable and so private.

Thank you again

great location

We stayed for a long weekend to visit LA and Hollywood. The cottage was great. Just a few block from the beach. Main St has lots of great restaurants and shops. Tacos and sushi seem to be everywhere you go. Nice patio area.

Great stay in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children aged 9 and 7 stayed here for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. The property is great, very clean and spacious and the off-street parking is very handy. We were able to walk to the beach and 3rd Street Promenade very easily. My kids loved the assorted toys and DVDs provided. We also appreciated the extras provided such as beach towels, body boards and even kitchen basics like a kettle (very rare in the US we found!). The owners were very obliging and welcoming but not intrusive. Highly recommended!!

From the Owner

We are a busy family but we always have time for guests who need a little extra help. We have booked Laker tickets for the family who had a problem with their credit card, recommended doctors and given a lovely Italian family a ride to airport because they were have trouble navigating the freeway.
