Best place ever! Clean. Bright. Great location. Fabulous hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property. It was exactly as depicted and described. The property is in a fabulous location, near the beach, the Santa Monica Pier, restaurants and Los Angeles. We could not have asked for better, more comfortable accommodations. Highly recommend it! (There were 4 people in our party including an 18 year old and a 15 year old.)

Worth the time

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything you need to feel right at home. Great color schemes to help you relax and just the right amount of space. We had four in our party and never felt cramped. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you will need to make a meal. The outdoor patio was so relaxing and roomy; equipped with a heater if needed. If I ever come back to this area I will definitely check with this listing first to see if it is available.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Len was great and the guest house worked out perfectly for us. We brought our three kids to spend a couple days in Santa Monica and Venice beach. The five of us fit very comfortably and we also had the lovely patio to enjoy and relax on. We ate out during our stay but, the guest house has a well-appointed kitchen for anyone who would prefer to stay in and do some cooking. There is a grill available, as well.

The house is a short trip to the pier or Venice Beach. Not too far from Malibu, Hollywood, Beverly Hills as well, but allow extra time for traffic.

Thank you for having us, Len and Family!

Perfect location for adventures!!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival to this location, which was earlier than regular check-in time, Len allowed us to drop off our bags and we went to have some lunch at 'Patrick's'. Great place to eat, just a short walk from the house. The house was nice and clean, and a good size for our party of 6 adults, although in place of a sofa bed in the living room, there was a futon (good for 1 person) and a mattress up in the loft (good for 1 person) along with a queen size mattress up in the loft, and a queen size bed on the main floor. We all made the one bathroom work for us, but I have to mention the water pressure in the shower was amazing!! The closet space was great to hang some clothes and store some suitcases for the week. The patio space was a great extension of our accommodations, which was used regularly. The hot tub was a nice added feature. The bikes were used quite often, and worked well, but should be checked for regular maintenance for safety. The house served us well for the time we were there. We did a lot of walking into downtown Santa Monica, but there is also The Big Blue Bus for $1.25 that stops right out front of the house. We left a schedule of the bus in the house along with the Metro Line, which is a great way to get downtown LA quickly. (about 1 hour from the time you get on the bus and transfer to Metro Line) The boardwalk is great to go see some sights along the beach. You can either walk or ride. We rode the bikes all the way to Marina Del Ray. Along this stretch you can see Santa Monica Pier, Muscle Beach, and Venice Beach. We went to Disneyland and rented a van. It was a nice drive and arrived there in about 45 minutes. The hop on hop off bus is a great way to see LA. The Santa Monica Steps are just a short distance from the house, they look intimidating, but try them at least once. We did them a few times and we all felt better, after we caught our breath. :) There is also a path right beside the house. Great location, felt very safe and fun was had by all!!! Thanks Len

Just a walk off the beach

  • 5 of 5

A nice little guest house and just a short walk from the beach. Len and Jan were very accommodating hosts and provided for all of our beach needs, from boogie boards to towels and umbrellas - even a nice bottle of wine when we arrived. We had 6 in our family and it was a little tight but the enclosed patio gave us that extra room which made it perfect for what we were looking for. Beautiful area and a great stay. Thanks again Len!

Cozy place, friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location for a stay in Santa Monica. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and a nice welcome basket with snacks and a bottle of wine. This is a very comfortable place for two, but more than that would have felt cramped to me. The outdoor patio made for such a pleasant and relaxing place to hang out. They have a large selection of bikes and beach supplies, and everything in Santa Monica is very close. I'd recommend planning to stay out of your car if you're there on the weekend. Traffic on PCH is horrible, and we couldn't find anywhere to park in Malibu. It might be close but it's not accessible. We had a fabulous time taking our bikes down to Santa Monica beach, but the fun ended when we got in the car.
