A little piece of Heaven>

  • 5 of 5

My third winter stay at this beautiful haven in the sky. Every night to go to sleep with the doves cooing,to wake up to the hummingbirds greeting the morning over this beautiful garden. It is the most enchanting and beautifully maintained property in Santa Monica, I would stay permanently if I could.

The perfect little place

  • 4 of 5

The Garden Casita is really a pretty little retreat, just perfect after a busy day in LA. It's like a hotel suite with a cute kitchen, well equipped and with everything you need.

The garden itself is adorable, with citrus trees, lounge chaise longues/sun bed, a little fountain and beautiful flowers everywhere.

The place is calm and serene and the suite was clean and fresh. Mary Ann is an adorable property owner, who really provides perfect customer service and meets all your needs.

I really recommend this little pearl.
