Great Location Close To the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience here and loved being so close to the beach and close to some good restaurants. Thyme was available and very responsive when we had issues getting the TV working and appreciated his help. Having all the beach items provided was a great help and the beach cruiser bikes were great for riding on the beach to Venice Beach and Santa Monica Pier. I was worried about the parking situation as the alleys are very narrow and there is little street parking so having the parking spot in the garage was superb. Good central location for driving out to Hollywood/Burbank for some studio tours and also spent time driving down to Laguna Beach for a change in beach scenery. It was a great stay!

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

We found this bungalow only a few steps away from the beach so we booked it. Thyme was very accommodating making sure we were comfortable and everything was ok with the place. We had the most incredible time and would highly recommend this place if you looking for something close to the beach and affordable. The beach cruisers also made getting around very easily. Book this place you won't be disappointed!

Thanks Thyme for your hospitality, we will be back soon! Nikki & Steve

small loft, great location footsteps from beach

  • 2 of 5

First, this was a great location, steps from the beach and quiet, safe neighborhood. However, the loft was small, unclean and smelled like a wet dog. I couldn't eat in the house because the smell was so of putting. The kitchen had moldy odor and only had a hot plate. There is no way that the place was cleaned before we came. I wiped down everything and had black rags by the end of it.
