Hi Susan,



We had a great time in Santa Monica, and we enjoyed our stay at your house.



Sorry, I left some cupcakes in the frig (not as sorry as my daughters!).



Thank you.

Fairly priced, good location.

  • 3 of 5

Convenient location. Comfortable bed. Good natural light. Steps were a little inconvenient for us and bathroom sink quite small , but, house priced fairly. The internet went in and out. Wasn't always available. I was too busy to follow up with Owner who I'm sure would have given me tips to straighten this out.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have you and your family as guests during your visit to Santa Monica. I'm glad to learn you found the location of my guesthouse/cottage convenient with good natural light and that the beds were comfortable. I'm sorry you had difficulty with the WiFi; it is frustrating when the connection is not what one wants/expects. I wish you would have let me know during your stay, I have two secure WiFi connections and would have happily let you and your family try the second secure connection.

Great clean property, close to the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the guest house very much. It was clean upon arrival and had enough space for our family of 4(which includes 2 grown children). The couch bed was very comfortable for our son. There were plenty of towels and it was helpful to have a washer and dryer. It was a little warm when we were there but the fans helped. The walk to the beach is easy as is the drive to the pier area. The deck was big and nice to relax at each evening. Susan answers emails in a very timely manner.

Thanks-Susan!
