Hi Susan,



We had a great time in Santa Monica, and we enjoyed our stay at your house.



Sorry, I left some cupcakes in the frig (not as sorry as my daughters!).



Thank you.

Very nice bungalow in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed for 3 nights - 2 adults and 2 children ages 11 and 17. We appreciated having 2 bedrooms and a sleeper sofa in the living room. The house was very clean and Susan and Scott were very responsive to our requests. There was a slight problem with the sleeper sofa which they remedied promptly. The location was convenient to the beach and for trips in Los Angeles. We parked our rental car on the street and usually found parking nearby. Whole Foods and other restaurants right around the corner.

Clean and stocked with all necessities.

Enjoyed the location 6-7 blocks from beach and also close to shops and restaurants. The patio outside was really nice to relax or grill.

A great choice!

  • 5 of 5

Susan’s property was exactly as described and perfect for our small group (my husband and I, our daughter and husband and their 2 month old and dog). The property had everything anyone could ever need and communication was prompt and check in was a breeze!

Great location, cute cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We had the misfortune of staying during a power outage 8pm to 5am. Susan was reasonable ( refunded me this night) & helpful as much as possible. WiFi never worked even after the power came on & messages via HomeAway to owner about WiFi went unanswered. It is a cute cottage & the location is great for walking to dinner, parks, beach. The place is very, very clean.

Owner's Response: Thank you for acknowledging the efforts of myself and my housekeeper to satisfy your many requests during the planned power outage of which you were aware before arriving. It is unfortunate we were unable to satisfy you. I missed the one mention regarding the WiFi connection in the 7 messages on HomeAway most regarding refunding payment and the City of Santa Monica transient occupancy tax and although we spoke on the telephone 5 times during your 2-night stay you did not call to mention a problem with the WiFi. Had I been aware of the WiFi connection problem, I would have resolved it. I'm very happy to know you found the cottage clean and proximally located to dinner, parks and the beach!
