About Dayle Kerry

We have been a Homeaway travelers for years. We know what we want in a vacation house and that's what we offer you, a lovely private cottage to enjoy on your own or with your loved ones.

We have lived in Santa Monica for over 30 years. We live in an exciting vibrant city on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, miles of beaches to walk or bike and the very best of entertainment, dining, sports and kid's activities. All you have to do is open the door!

Dayle Kerry purchased this cottage in 1988

What makes this cottage unique

You can park your car and walk everywhere. The beach, the best restaurants, cocktail lounges and entertainment is just a stroll away.

Fantastic property in great location

  • 5 of 5

We stopped here for just under a week to have a relaxing time midway through a road trip. The house is ideally located to easily walk or bike around Santa Monica and Venice so no need to have a car during your stay unless you're venturing further afield. If you do have a car the parking permit included is great and we managed to get parked outside of the house every day.

Property itself is really clean, tidy and stocked with everything you need for your stay. Bikes, scooters and beach gear were all well used by us as well as the BBQ and washer dryer.

Our only slight reservation prior to booking was the lack of pool but the beaches are great and Annenberg community pool is well worth checking out if you want to have a day off.

Overall we'd highly recommend the house, we stayed with two daughters (13 and 9) and it was certainly big enough. Lots of restaurants and cafes nearby, Bruno's Italian around the corner has a nice seating area out the back to catch a bit of sunset with excellent value food and Cha Cha chicken is also well priced And delicious.

Lastly, the review before us is correct about there being a bit of homelessness but way off in terms of needing to walk about in a big group. Not sure where they're from but we didn't feel unsafe at all on a night while walking around and saw no sign of any issues (other than the aroma of weed on the breeze!).

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay if you’re wanting to be close to the beach in Santa Monica. Owners are great people and the home was lovely. Close to everything. If you have a small family, this is a great place to stay. Only thing that was a bit surprising was the amount of homeless people all over Santa Monica. They are everywhere. I’d recommend walking in a large group while visiting the pier and beach in Santa Monica from a safety standpoint.

Wonderful property & so convenient to beach

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at this property. It was perfect for our four-person group. It is super convenient to the beach (a short walk), the Santa Monica Pier (less than 10 min walk) and nearby restaurants (just up and down the street). The house had everything we needed, and the sofa bed was quite comfortable (coming from someone who has long outgrown sleeping on sofa beds). We didn't use the free bikes that were available because the Santa Monica beach area has a bunch of motorized scooters that my daughter wanted to try, which turned out to be easy/fun to use to get around. If we're back in the LA area, we will definitely rent here again!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Adorable carriage house steps from the beach. Dayle and Chris were extremely welcoming. Perfect for a couple or small family. Extremely well-equipped with beach gear, sand toys, towels, etc. Would love to return one day!
