Nice location but dated.

  • 2 of 5

The house is wonderfully located fpr walking or biking to everything in Santa Monica as well as the beach. It's a cute place in a great neighborhood and the owner is very thoughtful. With that said we would not use it again as when we arrived it was not clean which required us to spend the first 3 hours of our stay washing the sheets and cleaning all kitchen surfaces as well as the tub and toilet. There is no way the house was cleaned prior to our arrival.

Additionally the house for VRBO purposes is only two small bedrooms with a shared and dated bath. The furniture is nice but dated and some items are in need of repair and/or updating. The front yard is very nice and has a number of places to relax. Also the house is on the market for sale with a large brokerage sign in the front yard.

Owner's Response: So sad to have read this review from this guest. I accommodated them to the best of my ability. They arrived 5 hours early and I did not charge them for their early arrival. The house was very clean when they arrived. They still complained that it needed more cleaning. I waived the cleaning fee to make them happy. They were very pleased that they received the cleaning fee refund. This home has been featured in commercial, magazines and most recently Sabrina Soto, with HGTV, who just filmed here for four days. The pictures that are posted for this home is exactly what the accommodations are. I always do my best to make each and every guest comfortable for their stay and hope that they appreciate my efforts in making sure that their vacation isn't ruined. Unfortunately, in this case my best wasn't good enough.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

I just got back from from a work and family visit to Los Angeles and stayed at this beautiful home. The pictures first attracted me but still did not do the home justice, as it's truly lovely and incredibly well located. My mother and I walked to all of our favorite places in Santa Monica.

The owner, Lynne, was very helpful and just a text/call away. She could not possibly be nicer.

I will definitely stay there again as I cannot imagine a more perfect place to stay for such a reasonable cost.
