"Check in was quick and easy! Cottage was exactly as described! Carmen was very welcoming, and gave us some places to visit that I did not know about during our stay! Awesome hostess! It was clean, and well maintained! The cottage was a little warm, it was 95-98 degrees during our stay, and no fans in the cottage! We did keep all windows open though, and it helped a little, but a fan would have been nice! The cottage location is in a residential area, and you can hear vehicles go by, but it gets quite after 9 pm (If you like to go to bed before that, buy ear-plugs and you will be fine). The first night me and my husband was there, we did hear a whole phone conversation late one night, since all windows in the cottage were opened, and you have to keep them open since the cottage has no ac or fan.
The cottage is also within walking distance to the beach, about a 10 minute walk! Also, if you have your own car, Carmen does provide you with a parking space in the back of the cottage, and you can also park in the front of the house, when you find a parking spot!
If you like to cook.... the cottage has dishes and pans, everything you need in the kitchen! Had a good time at this cottage, but my only suggestion would be to put up curtains in the kitchen and bathroom, even though it was a shower curtain preventing someone looking in! Other than that...I would definitely stay again!"

"Our stay at the Common House was very relaxing and being close to the beach was very helpful. Overall a quiet neighborhood with a few planes taking off from the nearby airport. Close to stores and easy access to the LA area. We wished it had an oven but the toaster oven was adaquate. Nice breezes in the afternoon felt great with the doors open. We would recommend this house and would stay again on another stay."

"Our stay was AMAZING! We enjoyed how clean it was, we were able to cook, we had an issue with the dishwasher but it was fixed the same day. We rode bikes, had several beach days we LOVED working with you all and Guierllmo (sp) and Chris were a blessing to work with! Thank you again!!!"

"This is a nice condo in a great location. We were there for five weeks. Most of the time only my husband and I, but our daughter, son-in-law and 6 month old joined us for a week. We were comfortable except for sitting in the living room area where there is limited seating - none too comfortable. That is one area that could use some updating. The condo was clean and in good condition. Although the unfinished concrete floors are another issue. It has an updated kitchen that was great for cooking - nice and open with beautiful cabinets, beautiful finished concrete counter tops and newer, good working appliances. The kitchen was very well supplied. The bathroom is very basic, but also in good working order. Good shower with plenty of hot water. The queen size beds were both very comfortable. We loved the private patio with a nice gas grill where we cooked lots of meals during the month we were there. The neighbors were very nice, but partying is discouraged because of the close proximity to neighbors. We were able to entertain a couple of small, quiet groups. We loved, loved the neighborhood with its proximity to the beach and Abbott Kinney and cool, trendy restaurants, delis, shops, bars and yoga studios.
Global management personnel were wonderful to work with. They were very responsive to our requests and needs. We sure appreciated the nice little crib they supplied for our grandson. The few small items missing from the condo were supplied as soon as we let them know. We would highly recommend this condo even with the few little caveats mentioned. We wIll definitely consider renting this condo again."
