Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just spent over a month at Mary Ann's 'Garden Hideaway' as a base for exploring Santa Monica and the Los Angeles area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The apartment is small but well-designed to include all the facilities we needed; plenty of closet space, a well-equipped kitchen, a good bathroom and a bedroom with a large and very comfortable bed. The location is quiet and the second-floor windows overlook a well-stocked garden.





We didn't hire a car but found a very extensive bus network took us everywhere we wanted to go. Seniors could go anywhere on the 'Big Blue Bus' network for just 50 cents a ride whilst the red Metro buses only charged Seniors 25 cents a ride 'off-peak' and 55 cents a ride during rush hours. Bus rides took us to Malibu, Redondo Beach, Downtown L.A., the San Fernando Valley as well as Beverly Hills and Hollywood Blvd. We also recorded some 230 miles on our pedometer!





We enjoyed a great winter holiday and found the Mary Ann's Garden Hideaway a very agreeable place to stay at, for which we thank her.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Garden Hideaway and it was absolutely perfect. I was looking for a quiet, peaceful place to recover from surgery, and I found it. It was clean, comfortable and the garden just beautiful. Mary Ann was a most gracious host, and it is clear she cares for and loves her surroundings. I didn't want to leave. Thank you!

Wonderful Rental

  • 5 of 5

I spent 5 nights at this rental, which is in a terrific location off Montana. The property is well furnished and very clean, with everything you need for a vacation stay. The unit is large for a studio, with an eat-in kitchen and lots of closet space. The bathroom has good quality towels, which is a nice touch. There is also a washer & dryer available. Mary Ann was a pleasure to deal with, and very accommodating. Her property and gardens are beautiful. I would definitely recommend these rentals, and plan to return for another stay.
