We absolutely loved staying at Casita del Sol! The place was so clean and was walking distance to the beach (was even easy to get to with our two year old). Oliver was so very kind, showed us the place, gave us a list of great food references nearby and then gave us privacy. The next time we're in Santa Monica we definitely plan on staying there again!
Casita del Sol was the PERFECT home away from home. Olivier was accessible and communicative the entire time and was more than willing to help us if we needed anything. He was a tremendous host.
His home is bright and welcoming, and the pictures did not lie. Our stay was cozy and the perfect LA getaway. The neighborhood is quiet and extremely close to the beach (about a ten minute stroll.)
If I am ever back in the LA area, I will DEFINITELY be staying here again. 10/10
Oliver is the perfect host. He checked on our stay numerous times throughout the weekend. His place was immaculately clean and perfectly situated in Santa Monica. It was a convenient walk to the beach and promenade. It was also in a very quiet part of town which made sleep beautiful! I will definitely stay here again when visiting Los Angeles.
Oliver was a wonderful host and me and my two friends simply loved everything about the accommodation, with really awesome decoration and comfort. Besides the location was perfect, we considered renting bikes, but we found that walking around was just as easy! This is really the place to stay! Thanks Olivier

About the Host, Olivier
As an ocean scientist and adventure photographer, I travel often and have slept in a wide variety of accommodations, ranging from makeshift tent to luxury hotel. Consequently, I know what can make or break one's stay.
I believe that hospitality is key and I try my best to provide you with a clean, relaxing space to spend your time. Furthermore, I dedicate much attention to design and detail in order to bring you the perfect blend of taste, convenience, and comfort.
As a Santa Monica native, I also have solid local knowledge of the area and can therefore give you helpful suggestions on where to eat, hike, bike, shop or surf. Check out my Guidebook and don't be afraid to ask!
