Recent Santa Monica reviews

  • Great house with superb location

    "This is a high-end, three level, newish home- one block behind Main street in the older and nicest part of Santa Monica. You can't beat the location for being in a highly-desirable area with lots of restaurants, shops and daily events around the corner; as well as its proximity to the beach which is only a 5 minute walk. Neighborhood is a mix of owner-occupied homes- both contemporary and historic with typical three story older, but well-kept apt. buildings infilled throughout. Neighborhood is quiet and safe. This property is essentially located equidistant from both the Santa Monica Pier and the Venice Boardwalk with good access to the I-10 and the PCH depending on where you are headed. We slept 5 of us comfortably throughout the house- with room for more if we had needed. Ground level has a nice back bedroom with access to a small, private yard. A Jack and Jill bath attaches to a smaller study/ bedroom with a sleeper sofa that was perfect for one of our teenage sons. Middle level is airy with open-plan and has the Master Suite, Main living area and a really spectacular Kitchen with a commercial range and massive island where we found ourselves cooking and eating the majority of our meals. Upstairs is an open mezzanine/ loft with a couple of sofas and access to a really nice roof deck with a sectional sofa which we also used everyday and every evening. Property was clean and all photos and amenities in the listing were as described. No surprises. Everything needed for your stay in there and in working-order. Owner is highly-responsive and lives nearby. He went above and beyond what one would normally expect to make our stay as hassle-free and as enjoyable as possible. As an example of exemplary customer service, when one of our sons, asked the owner where he could air-up the basketball; instead of telling us where we could buy an air-pump ourselves, a new one was waiting for him on the island several hours later after we returned from the beach. Positives are too numerous to mention. Only caveat would be that this is adjacent to an established Pre-School which has the expected flux of kids, moms and short-term traffic chaos around 9 AM and again around 3 PM. Kids are definitely active throughout the day- but for us, with 3 of our own, it was a non-issue. I would highly-recommend this property to anyone."

  • Wonderful!

    "We had a great stay here. The house was clean and comfortable. The yard was a nice place for us pasty Oregonians to drink coffee and soak up some sun in the morning. The beach is close and lovely. Colette was helpful and easy to reach. Highly recommended."

  • Perfect Family Getaway

    "We came down from San Francisco to LA to visit family for a few days. We had our 11-year old son with us. The house is almost 100 years old and has tons of charm (claw foot tub in one bathroom). The details in each room were charming and thoughtful with each room painted in different colors with comfortable furniture. The house, kitchen and bathrooms were clean. The house had everything we needed - blankets, laundry, lots of towels, fast wifi, dishes, pots, pans, hair dryer and coffee maker (most important!). The house is private but still close to the beach and restaurants. We walked to the beach playgrounds and the Santa Monica Pier every day, which was fun for our child. We were able to park easily due to the parking spot. There were great restaurants on Main Street (a block away).  Dog Town Coffee is a must.  We even ventured a little further away to get sandwiches at Bay Cities (per a friend's recommendation).  Important to us - the house and neighborhood were quiet at night and we were able to get good sleep. . The location really worked for us. We went to a hip Venice Beach restaurant one night and drove twice a day to our relatives in Pacific Palisades (13 minutes!). The owner introduced herself to us and was helpful with restaurant recommendations and ideas for us to do with our kid - thank you for that. We had a car with us. But, we needed to take Ubers a couple of times, and there were many drivers available to us close by. So, that was a nice unexpected perk. We will be renting this house again!"
