If there wasn't a beautiful world to explore you would never leave the this extremely comfortable refuge!
*** Need 2 bedroom? I have a great recommendation, just ask me! ***
This gated apartment building is beautifully landscaped with roses, flowers and plants. A very comfortable and serene space, with lots of soft light. It's decorated with an ethnic flair. The couch is as comfortable as the bed. Its draped with sheep skins, so the feel is luxurious and will make you melt with contentment.
The generous, antique dining room table has soul and it's wonderful for working at or for that succulent meal over candle light. The benches are covered with sheep skins for a relaxing feel.
The bedroom is just as comforting. The queen size bed feels like you're on a cloud. A Posturepedic mattress, feather bed and memory foam await you. It's also outfitted with a TV/cable for bedtime movies. A sheepskin rug beside the bed ensures that when you wake up your feet will be very happy! ;-) LOL (as you see, I have a thing for sheep skin rugs)

Our stay at Gato’s place for the first half of February is very pleasant. The place is in a quiet neighborhood with clean streets and lush plants. Surrounded by many windows her rooms are filled with fresh air and warm sunlight. The shopping and dining areas are very near. Also, to the seashore, even by a slow walk, is within thirty minutes.
Gato is very friendly. She was very quick and cooperative in contact with us during our booking process and then our stay in her place, specially meeting us at the street gate on our arrival. The kitchen facilities in her place are of good use, including cooking wares and ingredients, also the drinking water is well supplied. We really feel a home-like stay in her place and for our next trip to Santa Monica likely to come back to her place again.
We had had really nice time. Gato's place is very comfortable and felt like home.
The place was amazing and very homey! Loved every moment we spent here.
Cozy, comfortable and well located. Kat is such a lovely and interesting hostess and could not have been more accommodating.
The listing description was more than accurate. Neighborhood is safe and and very much family oriented. Nearby shoppings and good restaurants. Safe to walk around. Though we did not have the time to meet with Cat, she has given us a list of where to go, and things to do in Santa Monica. And made herself available if we had questions or encountered difficulties while at her place,
Nice host, beautiful apartment, pretty well equipped and clean. Also nice neighborhood.
We will be back for sure!
Cat's apartment was the perfect home away from home for me. I needed to work from the apartment during the day and her big wooden table made for a great makeshift desk. I also spent a good amount of time on her sofa which was super comfy and a great place to browse through a full set of entertainment options (cable, Apple TV, etc). The bed afforded me a week's worth of great sleep too.
Although we did not meet in person, I appreciated how thorough her instructions were. She was also super responsive when I needed to extend my stay for a day.
All in all, I highly recommend Cat's place!
