Perfectly described and great location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great stay here after the 2018 Rose Bowl. We wanted to stay somewhere close to the ocean and close to LA to do sightseeing. This was the perfect place for us. It has a full kitchen and great upstairs loft room that had everything we needed.

The loft is about a mile or so from the Santa Monica Pier and has great access to the highway for sightseeing. I would highly recommend this for a couple that wants to stay at a great location for the beach and highway access. The owner was very prompt in her communication while booking and checked in on us after we had arrived.

We really enjoyed this unit. We were able to walk to the beach and have coffee on the balcony. The owners took care of our needs. We’d stay here again for sure.

Wonderful stay! We will return!!

  • 5 of 5

The loft was quite clean and comfortable. Although the kitchen was small it had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and large. And the little balcony a nice addition. The owner Kathryn has thought of everything from a welcoming bottle of wine and chocolates to a notebook of clear instructions. Everything we wanted was within walking distance. We will be back!

Great loft space, close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the loft in Santa Monica. There was a lovely bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival which we found particularly thoughtful. We stayed as a family of the 4, our kids being 12 and 10. While all beds are in the one room, we didn't feel cramped. Bathroom was lovely and large and the kitchen was nicely stocked with items to cook our own meals after a stint of eating out. We would definitely recommend.
