Perfect Home for a getaway to the Pacific Ocean

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to LA for my teenage daughter and her friend to visit the campuses of USC and UCLA. Len's guesthouse was perfect for the 3 of us. The bathroom was very large and stocked with plenty of towels, washcloths, soap, and shampoo. There was also a very large walk in closet with a full length mirror and counter top for the girls to dress and put on their makeup for the day. The cabinets were stocked with necessities including sunscreen and aloe vera. The kitchen was stocked with pots and pans, a coffee maker, blender, and toaster. The bikes with locks were a great addition to our trip. We were on the Santa Monica beach in less than 4 minutes. We could easily ride to the Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach,on the bike path. We could also walk to the beach in under 10 minutes. Len had multiple coolers for use and a wagon to pull all of your gear to the beach. Plenty of beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, and beach toys were all available for use. I recommend visiting the Annenberg Community Beach House-check out their website. We rode the bikes and spent the afternoon soaking up the sun and swimming. We took public transportation throughout our week in LA. For $14 you can get a 7 day pass for the Big Blue Bus (check out their website for details) and take the bus from LAX to the bus stop directly across the street from the guesthouse. The famous Santa Monica stairs are a block away and the view from the top is breathtaking. Len was very accommodating to all of our needs, even leaving us a welcome basket of snacks, candy, and red wine. If we are lucky enough to return to LA, we hope to rent this home again. It was perfect!

Great Location and Cozy Feel

  • 5 of 5

My family of five stayed here for a family wedding weekend. It was a little tight, but we knew that going in and decided the location and the price made it worth it. We walked to the beach and a really new fun thing for Santa Monica are the "Bird" scooters that you can rent. (You have to download the app). You will see them everywhere once you make it to the beach. Don't really need a car because Uber or Lyft is so available and affordable. Our host was super friendly and laid back and answered all our questions. We didn't really try any close by restaurants , too busy with the wedding. I would love to come back with my husband sometime and spend a week here.

Awesome Visit

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 3 days! Fantastic location (5 minute walk to beach), very comfortable unit with great beds, lovely patio, and a nice walk to 3rd Street Promenade and Santa Monica Pier. For runners, Will Rogers State Park and Beverly Hills and the beach make for good adventures. Thanks for a wonderful visit!

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is literally a little home away from home. It had everything you could imagine for a comfortable and cozy stay! From the inviting patio area to the the 5 min walk to the beautiful beach. Great convenient location to many attractions and shopping. Len and Jan were very personable and always there to answer any questions whether in person or by text. My only complaint was we wished we could have stayed longer! Would definitely stay at this beautiful property again.

I would definitely stay a this property again

  • 5 of 5

The property is nicely situated near the beach, Santa Monica Pier, and many good restaurants. The property owners Len and Jan are great. Very personable and available for any questions that you might have. They also have a great dog "Rosie" that is very well trained and lovable. They even let us take her for a walk and come to visit us in the rental. The deck is very accommodating with two separate seating areas, a propane heater, and a propane grill. We took advantage of all. We also found out about the many hidden stairs around the area and got a great workout each day using them. I would highly recommend this property. We had a wonderful stay.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

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.
