About Lorna

I have lived right here in Santa Monica for 30 years and LOVE this area!, and am thoroughly familiar with this city as well as the Greater Los Angeles Area.

Why Lorna chose Ocean Park

We are located in just the right distance to the beach, allowing for beautiful morning or evening walks, in cool clean air all year round. Without the heavy beach traffic and parking concerns.

We are in a very friendly and safe neighborhood, easy access also to shops, cafes, great food and entertainment.

We are also a short drive to the Santa Monica mountains which has many wonderful hikes leading to fabulous views of the coast and city.

Not to mention many of the City's other major attractions. Easy access to the local bus is just around the corner, which is 8 miles from LAX.

Great location...a cozy and comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Love this property! Recently stayed in October and it was simply the perfect location to walk everywhere and enjoy the best of Santa Monica.

Location A+

Street parking with a guest permit pass was fantastic. So many places you need to fight for parking and it was never an issue to pull up in front of the house with a spot. Once there we didn't need the car to reach anything. You can easily walk to Main Street for a great selection of restaurants and even the Sunday farmers market. Just a few blocks further and you are at the beach with a nice walk to the Pier and the heart of SM. If you enjoy urban walking you will love this location for all it has to offer close by.

Accommodations A+

A lovely private guest house, which is attached to the main house but very private. Very nicely appointed and one of the most comfortable beds with good quality bedding I've experienced at a VRBO property...thank you for a great nights sleep every night. While a cozy space, the high ceilings make the rooms much more spacious. The kitchen was perfectly stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals and the complimentary coffee and light snacks that Lorna provided were a very nice touch. The bathroom is stocked with all sorts of lotions, soaps, other supplies, which is so nice in the event you forgot or ran out of something. Very nice bath towels. Very thoughtful touches all around.

Service A+

Lorna's pre-arrival communication was excellent as well as her quick responses to any of our texts on basic questions. Excellent service!

My only issue....our stay wasn't long enough : ) Look forward to staying at this property again, highly recommend!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to Santa Monica staying at the Kensington House. Lorna did everything she could to make our visit a pleasant one...even bringing more coffee when we were running out. The house is very well supplied, clean and comfortable. We particularly liked the minimalist decorations and the art work of prints of Santa Monica.....perfect for visitors !

The neighborhood is quiet despite being so close to Lincoln and parking was never a problem.

The location is very convenient to Main St., 3rd St Promenade and even Montana area shopping. We definitely will stay again.

Handy Location

  • 5 of 5

It's an easy walk from this VRBO to local businesses, parks, and the beach if you are up to it! This was our second stay in this VRBO and we plan to be back again in the future. The VRBO unit is small but adequate, and the owner is very accomodating. We enjoyed our stay in sunny Santa Monica!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful time. Everything is as described in the property details and reviews. Communication with Lorna was easy and quick, check in/out was easy, the stay was very comfortable (the bed, amenities, snacks, etc). Really appreciated the parking permit. Great location - we walked everywhere and hardly used our car. There is a bit of traffic noise when sitting on the porch, but it's not an issue overnight. Since the property is shared with the main house, sometimes talking and movement can be overheard, but it wasn't disruptive. Would definitely recommend and stay again!

We had a great time in this VRBO. It was peaceful and had all the amenities we needed. We definitely consider this VRBO on future trips to Santa Monica.

Great property and friendly host!

  • 5 of 5

Overall the property was wonderful; clean, good location, and included tons of extras. The kitchen not only basics but there were water bottles, coffee, peanut butter, jelly, and other condiments/supplies. Same story with the bathroom; q-tips, lotions, soap/shampoo, and sunscreen. These extras made our stay even more enjoyable. We also took advantage of the patio where enjoyed our breakfast. The only consideration I would list would be the "door" separating the bedroom. It was only a paper partition which did not offer much privacy between the main living area and the bed room. I would stay here again in the future!
