  • Great Apartment

    "We are very satisfied with our stay at Santa Clara! The place is very cozy and situated in a quiet, safe area of Venice. Everything went smooth - clear information upon arrival, super responsive when we had questions and the staff was very service minded. I would gladly recommend this to any friend!"

  • Cool place with a 1950's theme

    "My wife and I spent three wonderful days at this very nice cottage. It was a good size for us and a perfect location. We were in L. A. to visit our grandson who is currently being treated at the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. The cottage is less than a mile away from the hospital, so we were able to walk there each day. It is located on the side of a hill and so to get there you have to walk down a staircase that covers two stories. If you can make that trip, the experience is well worth the climb. The cottage itself is indeed “adorable”. Robin and Tim have been able to preserve a 1950’s feel, yet it has been thoroughly updated inside. The bathroom and kitchen are in great shape and have everything you need. Two of the three nights we fixed dinner at the cottage. One night we ate outside on the small patio in front of the cottage. Very nice experience. Robin and Tim are great hosts. During our stay both of them went out of their way to come by and check in on us to make sure we were comfortable in their place. Robin was particularly helpful setting up the reservation and provided useful information about the area and how to get there. We would certainly stay there again and would recommend it to anyone, especially those visiting the Children’s Hospital and the Kaiser Hospital located nearby."

  • Fantastic Hollywood location!

    "My wife and I stayed at this little hidden gem for 5 days in September. The studio was absolutely immaculate and surprisingly spacious for a studio. The property itself was in a great location within walking distance of the famous Hollywood walk of fame. Vincent was very accommodating and gave us some valuable tips for our stay. I would strongly recommned this property for anyone who is looking to stay in the Hollywood area and will certainly stay here again if we reutrn to LA. Thank you Vincent."

  • Family getaway

    "The owner was very accommodating on arrival. We had gotten into town early so she rushed to get the place clean quickly and let us check in early and hit the beach. The BEST part about this place is the amenities she provides. Bikes for everyone, boogie boards to use, beach toys, kites, and even the house is stocked with toys and games. Our kids, 10 and 12, loved it! It is just one block to the beach and easy access to the bustle of both Venice and Santa Monica as it sits literally sandwiched between the two. The home is cute and quaint with everything you need. The owner even had a bowl of juicy oranges and granola bars for us when we arrived. So welcoming and accommodating. Parking was tight but there was space in the back of the unit for our big SUV. We jostled a bit when we need to get the bikes out but it was easy enough. The only drawback to this location is the street noise. It sits right off of Pacific so the traffic noise drowns out any beach seagulls or quiet you might want sitting on the back patio. At night and early morning can be really loud especially since you need to have all the windows open to let a cross breeze through the unit. My kids didn't mind and I had earplugs so it worked out okay. Lovely home and would definitely stay here again!"
