Recent Santa Monica reviews

  • home from home did not want to leave

    "From the first moment we arrived we knew we had made the best choice.The property is immaculately presented, as in the listing.The owners are marvellous with great attention to detail and hospitality second to none.location couldn't be better, restaurants, stores and Beautiful Santa Monica easily explored on foot.We had no problems but fealt if we did Scott and Randi would resolve and enhance anything.The property is a short drive from LAX, a great location to visit theme parks and of course the great pier and beaches.We where a party of two and five so we rented the whole of downstairs which was excellent, giving everyone more than enough room for personal space and excellent for all enjoying time together as well.Again we felt very well looked after and very safe, thank you."

  • Cozy room in Santa Monica

    "This place was just as advertised. It is not huge, but fine for 2 people that do not need to cook. There are plenty of appliances to reheat things or make coffee, which is what we needed. There was enough space for us in the bedroom / closet / bathroom. The layout is a little unusual, but for a short stay it was fine. Also, the place was very clean which is a big plus for me. Rachael was very timely at communicating and making sure we had what we needed."

  • Great Santa Monica Oceanview Apartment!

    "I stayed here for a month and it was terrific. The location is right across from the Palisades park, there's a set of stairs to the beach right across the street, and everything in Santa Monica is walking distance. The view is restorative, the place is clean and beautifully decorated, the TV and internet are stellar, and the owner goes the last mile to make sure everything is perfect. I can't wait to stay here again."

  • Zen Cottage was the perfect location for my stay in Los Angeles

    "Hosts Howard and Jacqui have done everything to make Zen Cottage a wonderful place to stay. We have stayed in a number of rental properties but this was special because everything was just right from bed linens, to towels to kitchen equipment. What a treat to open a kitchen drawer or cabinet and find not odds and ends or the minimal requirements but everything you might need and all of excellent quality. The overall design and decoration of Zen Cottage is lovely including some very nice Asian pieces in each room. Two couples would do well here because both bedrooms and both bathrooms are first rate. It is a very quiet neighborhood at night so count on getting a good night's sleep. And Howard and Jacqui are nearby, helpful and very warm people. The location of Zen cottage was excellent for us because we were going to many parts of LA. Naturally all of Santa Monica and Venice are within a few minutes drive. Or it's a 20 minute bike ride to ocean beaches. You can use surface roads for getting to Malibu, UCLA, Brentwood, even Beverly Hills and beyond but at some point you will have to get on a freeway and the infamous 10 and 405 are minutes away. Off-hours you can get to downtown LA or Hollywood in 22 minutes (v. 50 min in rush hour). In the quiet neighborhood around Zen cottage you will find shops that you can even walk to. The immediate streets are tree lined residential ones and it's a 5 minute walk to Santa Monica Blvd and 7 minutes to Wilshire Blvd. Btw, we are not TV viewers but there were large flat screens and associated equipment in the living room and each bedroom. Also some reviewers mentioned "parking" in their reviews. Do not be put off by this. You have an assigned off-street parking spot 30 feet from the front door. Only if you want to park on the street will you need to listen to Howard's very clear one minute explanation of the local rules which are quite simple."
