                                                              This is my very special place every winter while i work in LA. MaryAnn Jordan is always there when ever you need anything (usually with a grapefruit or fresh lemons from her beautiful garden.) I miss this enchanted hobbit hole the minute I leave.

                                                              I loved staying in this apartment, it is very clean and quiet and the area is wonderful.

                                                              My enchanting home away from home.

                                                              For 4 years Mary Ann Jordan's garden has been my winter home while working in Los Angeles. Each night i come home from work to the smell of jasmine, the gentle bubble of the fountain, the soft cooing of the doves, the casita is my spiritual refuge. Mary Ann Jordan has become a dear friend to all of us who stay here, we are so lucky to share her beautiful home and the gardens that she has lovingly created herself. With much affection, Andi Carole

                                                              Charming place and beautiful garden

                                                              Our second stay here was very comfortable, satisfying , and very conveniently located for our needs.

                                                              Mary Ann is very attentive to the property and to the guests.

                                                              We recommend this place very highly.

                                                              My third winter stay at this beautiful haven in the sky. Every night to go to sleep with the doves cooing,to wake up to the hummingbirds greeting the morning over this beautiful garden. It is the most enchanting and beautifully maintained property in Santa Monica, I would stay permanently if I could.

                                                              The perfect little place

                                                              The Garden Casita is really a pretty little retreat, just perfect after a busy day in LA. It's like a hotel suite with a cute kitchen, well equipped and with everything you need.

                                                              The garden itself is adorable, with citrus trees, lounge chaise longues/sun bed, a little fountain and beautiful flowers everywhere.

                                                              The place is calm and serene and the suite was clean and fresh. Mary Ann is an adorable property owner, who really provides perfect customer service and meets all your needs.

                                                              I really recommend this little pearl.
