If you have plans to meet friends or others here in Santa Monica that is wonderful. Please know though that I would prefer that you spend time with them out and about, and not in the unit. There can be exceptions as every situation is different, but in general please ensure that others do not visit/stay in the unit unless we have talked about it and made other arrangements.
This is a non smoking accommodation. Please do not smoke anywhere inside or near the building, and please keep the noise to a minimal level.
I have two dogs, and yours is welcome. S/he stays with you in your room while you are on the premises. There is an AWESOME place around the corner called The Healthy Spot where day care is available there for your amazing dog while you are out. (phone number hidden)
Sorry, no kitties.
Jenn was amazing, very welcoming! I even received a goodie basket upon arrival. My room was perfect and the bungalow was only a short trek to downtown Santa Monica and awesome beaches. I now have a new found love of LA!
Jennifer is the perfect host. She was able to accomodate my feather allergies by giving me a fleece comforter rather than the feather one. She had a lovely personalized welcome basket ready for me. The room and her home is tranquil, welcoming and peaceful. She and I had a lovely time talking one morning. The room is pretty close to the beach. I had a wonderful time, and highly, highly recommend Jennifer, her sweet dogs, and her welcoming lovely home.
It has taken me a few days more than I expected to review our stay at Jennifer's beach bungalow because the stay was amazing!
Jennifer was an amazing host who made my daughter and I feel totally welcomed during our 4 day stay in Santa Monica. Everything about the bungalow was exactly as she stated. Jennifer's home is beautifully decorated and you just feel at peace in this lovely bungalow.
I particularly loved how I could sit on the couch and feel the breeze blowing through the windows. And usually one or both of her sweet dogs would hang out with me too!
The bungalow was within walking distance of everything...including the Santa Monica Pier.
One of the best times my daughter and I had with Jennifer was when we all had dinner at Ingo's Tasty Diner! It was a great way to cap off the stay in Santa Monica.
I would truly recommend Jennifer's Beach Bungalow to anybody looking for a place to stay while visiting Santa Monica!
We had a lovely time staying with Jenn and her handsome gentle dogs Rosco and Otis. I would highly recommend this airBnB. A great location, beautifully decorated home, we felt at ease and got to live like a true Santa Monicans. Thanks for a wonderful although too short stay, hopefully we will get back to California soon!
Jenn and Maddie
My stay with Jen was absolutely amazing, she did everything she could to make my stay in Santa Monica comfortable. I loved that we were greeted to our room with a gift basket with everything we needed for our trip. The house is exactly how it is described very clean and it is at a perfect location in the middle of Santa Monica, I especially loved spending my evening with her dogs they are both so loving
Staying at Jen's Bungalow was an amazing experience! When we first arrived, she came out to the street to make sure we found parking. When we entered her home, we were greeted by her gentle, sweet puppies, and found a gift basket on our bed with all the overnight essentials!
Jen made us feel so comfortable in her clean, beautiful space. She gave great restaurant recommendations, and had us laughing histerically with her sense of humor. In addition to finding a great place to stay, I feel we made a friend along the way. I would definitely recommend her home to anyone and hope to stay with her again someday!
The little oase of peace and a lot of love in Santa Monica, Los Angeles. Jennifer's place was just as described: clean and well ordered. Jennifer was the perfect host. I was very enchanted by the lovely rose on the bed and a whole basket of gifts. Jennifer was so generous of her self and her time. I loved staying at her place. I loved her two cute dogs that are so loving, that I completly forgot my fear of dogs. I highly recommend Jenn's place, you will just love it.
