Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We had the best Spring Break. This bungalow is absolutely adorable and walking distance to everything. (Grocery, Starbucks, beach, Promenade) We would venture out on a hike, Malibu surfing, LA sightseeing, bike ride to Venice Beach, and come back to the pool or the beach before walking to a fabulous restaurant for dinner. Lisa sets you up with everything and answers all of your questions. We will be back for sure. Love Santa Monica!!

Cozy and ultra comfortable bungalow. Walking distance from best Santa Monica places.

  • 5 of 5

We had one of our best vacations in LA where we've been travelling for the last 17 years.

We stayed for about 40 days at bungalow #2, a tiny jewell, absolutely comfortable and well equipped. The nearness (just one block) from Montana shops and restaurants ads a special flavour to one"s stay at this cozy property. We stayed there in winter but the pool shared with the back bungalow surely is an important facility to consider for summer vacation.

Congratulations for the wonderful and simple house decoration and the careness of the management.

Great location close to Montana

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely stand alone bungalow. Spacious and light with seating for 6 people to eat. Very comfortable beds which is often not the case in holiday rentals. Well equipped kitchen and Lisa quickly supplied a couple of missing items. The pool is an added bonus. Although it is shared with another bungalow we always had it to ourselves. Lisa is a lovely host! She responds to any request quickly and efficiently. Will definitely stay there again.

Spectacular location, comfort & pool!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had everything we could ask for during our time in southern California. The home was clean, the pool was refreshing, kitchen was well-stoked with cooking and food prep needs and the beds were comfy! The location is incredible, easy walk to the bluffs and all the shops and cute restaurants you could ask for. Lisa & Collette are well versed on all the happenings, were responsive, helpful and met all of our needs. I miss it already!
