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.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

It suited our family needs. Close to stores and the beach and a wonderful sushi/Thai restaurant a block away. Even had beach Toys for my kids. Patio was nice to grill.

Quiet, private, fully stocked cottage

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. It had everything we needed. Love the location, the outdoor setting with wrap around decks and it was comfortable and cozy. Took a walk down to the beach and enjoyed seeing the neighborhood. Super clean and well stocked. Wasn't a fan of the claw foot tub shower though. One suggestion on that is if the the shower head was exchanged for one that swivels and is not locked in place it would be easier to use.

Very comfortable and well appointed apartment

  • 5 of 5

Susan has made this a very pleasant place to stay on a quiet street. It has 2 decks and a very well supplied kitchen. It is worth reading the notices around the kitchen so one understands the operation of the heat. A radio or equipment to play music could make a nice addition. And the shower might need a bit of updating. Otherwise, Great!

Charming well located comfortable cottage

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I along with our 12-year old dog very much enjoyed our month-long stay in this clean, simple and comfortable guest house, well situated in Santa Monica, and walkable to the beach, Main Street, the supermarkets and shops. A lovely safe residential neighborhood. The fireplace and large deck were welcomed highlights. The bathroom is tiny but quite manageable. The owners were responsive on the rare occasions we had questions but otherwise there was zero interaction, which seemed to be their preference. We highly recommend this property.

Great little clean cottage in excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed our time at this cottage. It was very clean and the beds were quite comfortable. Our 7 year old son took one of the beds and our 12 year old daughter slept well on the pull-out sofa. We never had a problem finding street parking and the house is an easy walk to restaurants, coffee shops (oh Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf!), and the beach. With smaller kids it might be too long of a walk to the Santa Monica Pier/3rd Street Promenade but we quickly discovered that we preferred the Ashland/Main Street area to downtown so it wasn't a problem. Susan was great and very accommodating and her family definitely gives you your privacy. Only wish we could have enjoyed the deck area more but cool weather and rain didn't give us chance, it seems like a peaceful place to enjoy morning coffee or evening wine. We'd definitely stay here again.
