Perfect location - Great Month in Santa Monica
"This townhouse is within walking distance of almost everything including the beach, shopping, great restaurants, yoga studios and even the 3rd Street Promenade. Numerous hiking trails are a short drive away. Dave, the landlord, provides ammentities needed to feel at home as well as info and equipment (bikes, coolers, beach chairs) to enjoy the area as a visitor. Hiking guides, restaurant suggestions, detailed instructions on all of the items in the house are very helpful. I would highly recommend this property."

Don't look past this one! An oasis at the end of our holiday
"We stayed here for five nights in May 2015. The house and location are both great. You literally need to only walk a minute or so to be on the boardwalk and experience the "sights" of Venice Beach, however being a pedestrian only frontage, the house maintains a quiet, relaxed vibe that enables you to really relax at the end of a busy day out and about seeing the sights.
We utilised all three bedrooms (there were four adults in our group) and everyone found they had a comfortable, quiet nights sleep.
After living in hotel rooms for the previous couple of weeks the ability to make our own breakfast, make a pot of coffee or have a snack from the fridge was a godsend. The restaurants up on Abbot Kinney Blvd are easy to walk to at night and all in all we felt right at home here. The extras like the bikes, scrabble boards etc are an added bonus, as in this day and age rarely do we get to spend time sitting around a table playing games together......though the wifi was much appreciated too! I would happily stay here again and have already recommended this house to friends.
Other things worth mentioning - there is a bbq and a full kitchen available, which would be great if you were inclined to cook whilst on holidays. Washing machine and dryer available complete with washing detergent. There is carparking available out the back. We didn't have a car for this part of our trip however we found it easy to get around, either by walking, bus, taxi or Uber."

"After a 14 hour flight from Australia, my husband and I were tired and a little disoriented. But we had no trouble finding our way into the cool peaceful bedroom of this apartment after a short taxi ride from LAX--Tina made it all so easy! After a few hours of restful sleep, we went exploring, and that's when we realised what a great choice this apartment had been. It's in such a beautiful neighbourhood, and so close to everything. We walked down to the beach, along the waterfront, and watched the sunset from under the pier. Then we wandered up to Third Street Promenade and found a great Mexican rstaurant for tapas and margaritas, then dinner. And then it was an easy walk back to the apartment. The apartment itself is beautifully appointed, in a lovely building with only a few other guests--who we never saw or heard. Over the next few days, we walked a few blocks down Montana Ave and did some shopping at the Pavilions supermarket (wine and antipasto mostly for us!), had a great Italian dinner at Spumoni on Montana (delicious gnocchi!), and even enjoyed a wonderful massage at The Massage Place on Montana. Our most memorable meal was probably brunch at Huckleberry Cafe on Wilshire Blvd--Green Eggs and Ham to die for! And every day we made our way to the beach or Palisades Park (two blocks away) to watch the sun melt into the Pacific. Magical!
Honestly, we were only looking for a few quiet days in Santa Monica to recover from the flight--a jumping off point for our five week trip to the US--but instead we found ourselves enchanted by this homey apartment, in a gorgeous neighbourhood, wishing we had more time to explore LA from here. Next time I guess :) Truly the best welcome to the US we could have asked for."

"My family and I rented this charming home in Santa Monica over the Christmas holidays.
It was everything that a family of four could wish for. It has a very private front yard, two bedrooms and two baths. The kitchen had all modern appliances and was everything we needed to prepare a Christmas banquet. The living room had a Samsung Smart TV and we were able to plug in our Apple TV module and get even more viewing options. The location of the house was only a ten minute walk down to the iconic walk along the beach. All in all we were very happy with the accommodations and recommend the house to one and all."
