Great alternative to the same old hotel experience.

  • 5 of 5

Close proximity to the beach, pier, and parks. Easy walk to all attractions in the area. Nice quiet property with just the right amount of amenities for our family of 5. Kids loved the loft area, and the outdoor sitting area was perfect for an afternoon read or a late night beer or glass of wine. The Guida's were excellent hosts! They made us feel like we were family from the very first meeting. Would definitely stay here again if we return to Santa Monica area!!

Absolutely charming!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property in a perfect location with just the right amount of space to be cozy without being crowded. My family and I came to California for a funeral but because of the warmth and kindness of the homeowners it became an extremely enjoyable visit. Thanks so much to Len and Jan for opening your wonderful home to us and making us feel so welcomed. We will most definitely be coming back as well as recommending you to everyone we know.

Great Santa Monica guest house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the guest house.

The location was excellent - easy to get to the beach and the pier, and easy to drive directly into the driveway from the side-street. Being able to park in the driveway was greatly appreciated! Made it much easier to not have to deal with street parking!

We loved the bathroom, the shower was amazing!

The upstairs loft area was nice enough. The ceiling was a little low on the sides, but it wasn't a problem. Definitely better for nimble, sober people, since the stairs are a little steep, but a perfectly good space to sleep in.

It was cool and rainy so we didn't get to use the patio but it was lovely - the furniture and decorations were adorable and comfortable and having the propane heater out there was a fantastic addition.

The kitchen was well appointed. We didn't use the stove, but we absolutely could have - there were tons of dishes and pots and pans available and it was so nice to have the treats and little food things available.

Great location, even better owner!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 6 nights. The location was perfect for us. The beach is very close and is an easy walk. Downtown Santa Monica is probably a little far to walk for dinner/drinks, but is close enough to be convenient. The owner, Len, was very easy to work with and is very accommodating and responsive. He has thought of everything and the details is what makes this property stand out. We have stayed at many VRBO properties and this was the best equipped property we have ever stayed at. We went from the least equipped property in Orlando the first week in January (that's another story!) to the best equipped property just 10 days later. What a relief. We highly recommend this location and hope to stay here again in the future.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

What a cute guesthouse in a great location! Len was a great host and very helpful! We walked to the beach and to three great restaurants (Caffe Delfini, Patrick’s Roadhouse and Tallulas). There was plenty of room for 5 of us to sleep, the bathroom looks newly remodeled and was very nice! We wish we would’ve had more time to enjoy the hot tub and bikes available for use!
