Marlene was very welcoming and the house had everything that someone might possibly need. Everything was very clean and the house gives off a very homey vibe. I would definitely recommend this place!
Marlene and her husband were incredibly welcoming (and it was great to meet their dog and tortoises)! The apartment is lovely, well furnished and in a great neighborhood. Just disappointed that we didn't stay longer.
Lovely place, gorgeous garden, gracious hosts. Marlene was very thoughtful, and the apartment was full of those little extras that help make it feel like home -- shampoo and conditioner, bread and cheese in the fridge, fruit and nuts on the coffee table. It's a perfect, quiet little base for Santa Monica adventures.
Perfect spot for a stay in Santa Monica. Looking forward to my next trip back!
Marlene was the sweetest ever! She met me when I arrived and made parking easy! The garden is so beautiful with tons of fruit trees! And a little table in front to eat meals outside in the garden, very relaxing. Marlene and her husband are wonderful people doing wonderful things, good energy, definitely recommend for everyone!
Marlene was very responsive from initial request to check out. She remembered when I planned to arrive and was ready to help me with parking.
The garden was truly beautiful. I enjoyed walking through and checking out all their lovely plantings. Very peaceful.
The apartment was perfect for me. Full kitchen was fabulous. I felt like I was a Santa Monica resident for my few days.
Location was terrific for me. Close to LAX, the beach and more. And my GPS found the house - easy breezy!
The only negative was that I packed my schedule so full that I didn't have enough time to enjoy the beautiful space Marlene and her family have created. This was my first Airbnb experience and I can honestly say I'm super impressed with the whole process! ;-))
We were very happy with our stay at Marlene's. She went out of her way to make us feel comfortable: she lent us a GPS and offered to let us park in her driveway when it looked like on-street parking would be tight (it wasn't). The garden is beautiful: we could sit outside at a little table and we were invited to eat fruit fresh from the trees. The living space was just right for two people, and we would certainly try to stay with Marlene again on future trips to Santa Monica.
