Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Amazing! Nancy is sweet as pie and very, very thoughtful. The location rocked- perfectly set between venice and santa monica.

    April 2014
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Nancy's place, very warm and cosy with beautiful sunlight beaming into the room during daytime. It's very conveniently located near cafés (Urth Cafe is a must try!) and walking distance to various shops and the beach. Hopefully Nancy would be able to host us if we visit again in the future?

  • Wonderful stay at Nancy's place. Charming, cozy room with a large bathroom. I stayed there with my husband and 7 month old baby girl. We were very comfortable. We took morning walks to Urth Café and sat on the deck to greet the day. Parking was convenient. We walked to the beach everyday. We had great meals on main street. Highly Recommend.

  • This is a beautiful room with everything you need, in a perfect location. Nancy is very friendly and easy to get in touch with. I would love to stay there again!

    March 2014
  • Nancy was there to greet us and checked in regularly. Having not slept for days prior to our visit, we welcomed the peaceful surrounding and long nights of sleep in the cozy bed!
    Restaurants nearby were within walking distance and were fun (and delicious) to visit.

    March 2014
  • What a great trip! Nancy's room was charming, spacious, clean and it was the perfect home base for our visit to Santa Monica. Just blocks from the beach and right in between Venice and downtown SM. We only wish we had another couple days there. Nancy was extremely easy to get in touch with and gave us great food recommedations. We took a taxi there from the airport and city bus back. The bus picks up about 6 blocks away and goes straight to airport...good option if your looking to save 50 bucks and the timing works. The cab ride was also smooth. We would definitely stay here again!

    March 2014
  • Nancy is a lovely host, and her guest room is cosy and comfortable. Will definitely stay again next time we're in Santa Monica!

    March 2014
  • Nancy's romantic beach hideaway is lovely - the furnishings are wonderful, very comfortable and cozy. Nancy has created a memorable ambiance and experience.
    Nancy is a thoughtful and thorough hostess, and albeit never hovered, we knew that she could assist with any issue we might have (case in point, we left a bike tool there that she is mailing back to us).
    We highly recommend Nancy's lodgings, and look forward to staying there next time we are in Santa Monica!

  • Nancy was a fantastic host. The location and room are incredible.

    March 2014
  • This romantic beach hideaway with a private entrance was spectacular, with an ideal location roughly 2-3 blocks from the beach! Plethora of shops/restaurants on Main street, and a 10 minute walk to the 3rd street Promenade. We rented bikes, which made it super easy to ride our bikes from the place down to Venice Beach, then on to Marina Del Ray. Had a lovely porch to sit on and drink wine, and we were incredibly grateful for the heaters she provided (as it got cold in the evening). Nancy was such a sweet lady, and greeted us upon arrival, which I should point out, was earlier than expected. She was flexible and accommodating, and had organic apples and filtered water waiting for us upon arrival, which was a nice touch. The bed was comfortable, and the shower was enormous (with a skylight!). While this wasn't an issue for us because we were barely in the room, there was no TV provided. But honestly, with so many things to do within walking distance, TV will be the last thing on your mind! We highly recommend both Nancy and her wonderful Romantic Beach Hideaway. We will definitely be going back!
