About Summer Germann

We love to read, skateboard, surf and have a mutual love for music. A few of us skate and surf, while the other one (ok, the mom), enjoys watching them from the sand!

Why Summer Germann chose Los Angeles

The best thing about the cottage is that you really get the feel of what it's like to be a Santa Monica local. You're in the heart of everything, yet when you want peace and quiet, you can retreat to your cottage!

average rating of 4.875 based on 24 reviews

We really enjoyed our stay at the Bright Beach Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Summer was very welcoming and the cottage was charming and spotless. She had everything we could need all set up for our family of 4.

I could not see the ocean from the back deck. Maybe the trees were too tall or because it was overcast most of our stay.

The shower head really needs to be replaced but otherwise we liked our visit to this cute, little cottage. The neighborhood is great and we could walk everywhere from it (the beach, great stores and restaurants)!

Thank you Summer and family!

Owner's Response: Hi Alicia- I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. The overcast really does make a difference in Santa Monica and especially being so close to the beach. On an overcast month we can go just one block east and it's like a completely different city and sunny. We are so blessed though to be so close and to be able to feel the ocean breeze and smell the fresh sea water. I'm sorry about the shower head. We've had a few families since that haven't mentioned it, so I just messaged the family back there now and they said there isn't a problem with it at all. I'll check it again after their departure, but I'm not quite sure what was going on with it while you were here. I wish you would have mentioned it, so that I could have looked at it and addressed your concern. Kindly~Summer

Perfect Santa Monica Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was the perfect spot for a quick girls' getaway. The location was perfect to let two teenage girls wander the four blocks to the beach on their own. The house is situated directly behind the owner's home and provided great breezes! The kitchen was great for preparing almost all our own meals and the beds were comfortable.

The location was convenient to lots of shops and restaurants. I highly recommend staying here if you are ever in Santa Monica.

Lovely Cottage in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a glorious location. Within walking distance to cafes, restaurants and the wonderful beach and boardwalk. Close to everything . The house is lovely, very beach southern California like. Summer and her family were great hosts. We also appreciated laundry facilities and separate entrance to cottage. Great stay in Santa Monica.

Super cute, clean, cozy and perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our two small boys (age 4 and 2) started our vacation at this perfect cottage. The place is so cute and comfortable. We were able to stretch out and not be in each other's way even during naps and early bedtimes. The place is removed from neighbors and as private as possible in the city. Our boys were still on eastern time zone and got up at 4 am, but we didn't have to worry about waking neighbors or people around us. The house is in a gated back yard which made it feel super safe. We walked to the beach and a cute playground a few blocks away. And also enjoyed nearby Venice beach and Santa Monica pier. It was unseasonably cold, but the cottage was equipped with extra blankets and pillows. Overall a great stay!

Perfect little beach hideaway - fantastic location and as others have mentioned Summer, the owner, made us feel right at home.

Looking forward to a return -We feel so fortunate to have made the right choice for our get-away-from-winter holiday.

Love, love, love!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two adults & two kids (8 & 12 years) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Summer's cosy beach cottage. The cottage has a beautiful ambiance & the kind of amenities that you would never ever find in a hotel. We loved walking to Santa Monica Pier, riding tandem bikes between Santa Monica & Venice Beach, shopping at the local Whole Foods & visiting the Santa Monica Farmers Market. We ate our meals on the back deck with the fairy lights twinkling & walked around the neighbourhood to see all the houses decorated for Halloween. We consider ourselves fairly self sufficient travellers, but it was great to know that Summer was close by if we needed anything at all. Laundry facilities were a huge bonus, internet access was great & we all enjoyed watching the NFL, baseball & movies on tv! Thanks so much Summer...we will be back to visit as soon as schedules & finances allow.
