About Teresa

We have lived in Santa Monica for over 25 years. My daughter has just gone off to college and my son is a freshman at Santa Monica High School. We are originally from the UK. We love the relaxing beach atmosphere; farmers markets and restaurant varieties in Santa Monica; a great place for foodies.

Teresa purchased this house in 1988

Why Teresa chose Santa Monica

The House has the perfect mix of privacy and location. Hidden behind tall hedges is a peaceful atmosphere. We have been very fortunate to have people who have found the house and neighborhood relaxing and enjoyable. The usual response from our guests, 'just what they are looking for'.

What makes this house unique

We are a busy family but we always have time for guests who need a little extra help. We have booked Laker tickets for the family who had a problem with their credit card, recommended doctors and given a lovely Italian family a ride to airport because they were have trouble navigating the freeway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Teresa

Thank you so much. We had a great stay at the house. Everything we needed was there. The decorating was lovely and efficient, except that green chair that we could not sit in that. But the beach chairs were great. We used one in the house. The outside area was what sold me on the property when I looked at the website. It was everything I expected and more. So comfortable and so private.

Thank you again

Perfect home base for LA adventure

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed in this newly renovated cottage over spring break and loved it. The corner location is very private, surrounded by a tall hedge. The deck is spacious, relaxing and a lovely setting for early morning coffee and evening cocktails. The interior is clean, modern and comfortable. The location felt very safe and was convenient for walking to the beach, Santa Monica Pier, Third Street Promenade, Venice, etc. with many restaurant and shopping options close by. It was also a nice home base for day trips to Malibu, downtown, the amusement parks, Getty Center and more. Teresa and Dave were friendly and responsive and located right next door in case we needed anything.

Thank you!

We had a great stay at this newly remodeled home in Santa Monica. We will absolutely try to return to this location again in the future. Located in a nice neighborhood and a short walk to both Main Street amenities and the Beach made for a wonderful stay. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Great location and the cottage is super cute

  • 5 of 5

My family and our dog enjoyed the cottage and its many amenities tremendously. Only down fall was the hedge fence; we couldn't let our dog off leash in the yard as he would go right through the hedge onto a very busy street. That said, we would stay there again.

Darling house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed for a week. Close to the Pier and Third Street Promenade. Easy highway access for other activities. Kitchen and bathroom newly remodeled and gorgeous. We had a great stay, so much more comfortable than cramming into a hotel room.
