The apartment is absolutley gorgeous. Set at the back of the main house with a large patio area and everything you could ask for in the apartment. Len was great and answered any questions we had. Only a short walk away from the beach and I recommend going to Patrick's Roadhouse at the end of the street. The food is amazing!

Thank you so much Len for letting us stay can't wait to come back.

Very nice private bungalow tucked behind Owners home.

  • 4 of 5

This property is very clean and private. Newly remodeled bathroom and main floor area. Loft beds are functional and great for kids, but headroom is limited so might be difficult for older adults. Our host was very friendly and helpful! Checked occasionally to see if everything was o.k. and was always accessible by phone or text. Great location near beach!

Lovely guest cottage in a terrific location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights and found the place to be cozy and comfortable. We were two adults and two teens. My girls had a tough time sleeping in the loft. The ceilings are so low that they both bonked their heads really hard up there and they had trouble navigating the stairs if they wanted to get up in the middle of the night to head to the bathroom downstairs. I feel like the place would have been perfect if there had been just two of us...but for four, it was very tight. The location is terrific and just a short walk from the beach. We loved the little patio right in front of the guest cottage. Len was gracious and available to help us with any concerns.

Owner's Response: Hi Lisa, Thank you for your kind words and for your feedback regarding your stay. It is much appreciated. Our sleeping loft is small; which is mentioned in our description. The two mattresses in the loft are very comfortable, but the space is limited. I am sorry that the low ceiling presented a challenge to your daughters. We have had many, many children (and adults) sleep in the loft without issue. And, it is not uncommon for us to have families of four to five people (as evidenced by our over 110 reviews). The stairs are a bit steep, but with guard rails on either side, it is very safe. It was a pleasure meeting you and having your family stay at our Guesthouse and thanks again for your honest feedback. Len & Jan

We had a wonderful time in Santa Monica. The property was perfect for us. It was close to everything yet far enough away from the chaos. There was 4 in our group, 2 adults and 2 teenagers and we had plenty of room. The teenagers loved the loft. The new bathroom was so nice. The outdoor seating area was wonderful as well! We did use the hot tub and enjoyed having it right there. We loved the fact that we could walk down the street and have breakfast at Patrick’s Roadhouse. We enjoyed that so much we ate there twice. The Mexican restaurant down the street was good as well. We walked to the beach, it was down the quiet street and through a tunnel which got you across the busy street. We loved walking around the area of the rental, the steps of Santa Monica were a great workout and had a beautiful view. The homes at the top were worth the walk, they were beautiful to look at! Len was a gracious host who was there if you needed anything. We would definitely stay there again!

Great alternative to the same old hotel experience.

  • 5 of 5

Close proximity to the beach, pier, and parks. Easy walk to all attractions in the area. Nice quiet property with just the right amount of amenities for our family of 5. Kids loved the loft area, and the outdoor sitting area was perfect for an afternoon read or a late night beer or glass of wine. The Guida's were excellent hosts! They made us feel like we were family from the very first meeting. Would definitely stay here again if we return to Santa Monica area!!
