We are offering our newly built backhouse/studio in a centrally located residential neighborhood with very easy access to Santa Monica beaches, UCLA, and all of West LA. The studio is the entire second story (500 square feet) over a detached 2 car garage and shares the large and professionally landscaped backyard for the main house. There is 1 QUEEN size bed plus a queen size pull out couch that is surprisingly comfortable, a full bath, and a wet-bar with fridge/freezer, microwave, and coffee/tea accommodations.
We can provide pack-n-plays and some toys, if needed, for anyone visiting with small children. The studio has an air conditioner/heater, but the A/C is rarely needed in the summer since there is a wonderful cross breeze and we are close enough to the ocean. Currently the garage is used mostly for storage and laundry so there will be very minimal noise of opening/closing the garage door below you.
Ample parking is available on the street and no permits are needed. If you are not traveling with a car, we are walking distance to bus lines with very easy access to beaches, shopping, etc. We are also walking distance to a ZipCar pick up location. I have run to the beach from our place (approx 2.5 miles) and we often ride bikes there.
We have a cat, but he stays either in the backyard or the main house. He rarely (if ever) goes into the studio.

Very nice stay, very nice place. Definitely a good Bnb !
Well, Amazing place, great location where you can enjoy a really good part of Los Angeles. Close to the pier of Santa Monica and the Promenade nice places to visit and spend some time. The room was perfectly clean and Julie and Her Husband made our stay wonderful, they were extraordinary hosts. Was my second time staying at their place and I would definitely recommend if you are going to Los Angeles.
Julie's place is very comfortable. We are really impressed with how quiet the neighborhood is.
We would stay again in the future!
This was a great location as it is a quiet, residential area (the street in front of the house was busy during the day, but we didn't hear any street noise in the apartment) and was close to everything we wanted to do. The accommodations were very comfortable and we were really happy with our choice!
A warm welcome, a comfortable bed, a clean bathroom. I was happy as a clam.
The house is in a residential neighborhood, so quiet at night.
Julie was an excellent host. The place was new and clean and in the perfect location with plenty of parking. I really liked that they had an array of cell phone chargers for almost every kind of device you can imagine. Would definitely stay here again.
Best place to stay in Santa Monica!
Julie and Family are fantastic hosts! A friend and I were there on a business/skateboard trip to a trade show in Long Beach and had a few days to relax in Santa Monica. Julie's guest house was in the most perfect location we could have wanted. Although its away from the downtown area there are lots of great places to eat within a few blocks, even being vegan! Plus the skatepark is right down the street Jump on the bus near the house and within a few minutes you're at the pier or go a few minutes longer and you're in Venice Beach. Great experience :)
The apartment was very comfortable, clean, bright, sunny and well equipped. The hostess was very gracious. Our needs for a brief stay were fully met.
Julie's Guesthouse was ideal for our stay in Santa Monica/Brentwood. This was the 2nd airbnb that my husband and I have ever booked, and both spaces were exactly what we needed - a home away from home. We enjoyed the many personal touches and host recommendations that came with our stay. From the lovely grounds to the well-provisioned suite, we were struck by how different the airbnb experience was from staying at a large chain hotel.
This place is great! Julie was there to greet us and show us around when I got there. The house was spacious and super nice. No problems at all with the bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, or anything. There was plenty of street parking right by it and Santa Monica is a great area to stay in!
