If you love the outdoors, the beach is nearby, hire our great bikes and go for a cycle or walk down and play tennis at Marine Park or play golf at Penmar Golf course.

Interaction with Guests
We live in the main house, give us a shout if you need anything :). We do however spend extended times away from our home when we travel to our other home in Africa so there are times that you will need to make your own breakfasts. Our prices are reduced whilst we are away due to the fact that you will be making your own breakfasts.
This property is located in the Sunset Park area of southern Santa Monica. Our local attractions include the Santa Monica Pier, the wonderful Santa Monica beach and promenade,Third Street Promenade, Venice Beach, the Venice Canals, the Venice Skate park and of course the wonderful restaurants in Abbott Kinney, Main and Rose Streets.
The quiet residential area allows for relaxation after a busy day of exploring locally or more broadly in Los Angeles, Hollywood and the Universal Studios. The incredible weather in Southern California makes getting outdoors a must, walk or cycle to the beach,surf, play tennis at our local tennis courts or wander around the farmers market on Main Street on a Sunday Morning. We are very close to Santa Monica College and ideally situated for the families of Danish, Swedish, Dutch, French and German students coming to college here in the USA.
You can walk to Lincoln Boulevard ((7 min walk) and catch The Big Blue Bus. Uber or Taxi Taxi are great for trips and we have place for you to park without requiring street permits.
Other Things to Note
Breakfasts are extra special. European or American style cooking with Danish and French breads and organic herbs from our own garden. Please be aware that we travel a lot so cooked breakfast may not always be available. Our continental breakfasts are also special though.
This is an ideal base for people doing a few days of work or needing a brief beach holiday in Santa Monica. `please be aware that we respect our neighbors and their need for peace and quiet.
Zizi is a remarkably warm and welcoming host. She greeted me at the door and immediately made me feel right at home. The garden apartment is an oasis in the middle of Santa Monica. Every detail is thoughtful and perfect, down to the gorgeous Zizi-made breakfast under the pomegranate tree. I enjoyed a brief but wonderful stay, and can't wait to return. Best airbnb experience so far!
I had the best weekend at Zizi's Garden Haven! The room was spotless and very comfortable. The area was peaceful and Zizi greeted us every morning with an AMAZING breakfast and unique recommendations that I wouldn't have found on my own! A 20-30 minute walk to the beach throughout safe neighborhoods and about a 40 minute walk to Santa Monica Pier. Also, a very short drive to Venice Beach. I will absolutely be staying here on my next visit to Santa Monica! I can't say enough good things about my weekend stay!
What a perfect place to be!!!
What a perfect host to have!!!
And the best breakfast in the world!!!
I totally recommend !!!
Communication was very clear and responsive. Check in was a breeze and the downstairs unit is perfect for quick stays. The apartment is in a great location and conveniently located close to Rose Ave and Abbot Kinnney. Zizi is the best. She's a super cool mom who also makes you breakfast in the AM! Highly recommend!
3rd stay at Zizi and Harald's guest room. Everything was as perfect as during my previous visits. Will continue coming back when traveling to Santa Monica.
This was our first Airbnb experience.
Zizi and Harolds place set the bar remarkably high! Even though our marvellous hosts were not at home themselves we felt very welcome and safe at their place. The energy of their home is light and warm.
It has been easy to get in touch with Zizi both prior to and during our stay.
One senses immediately that Zizi really enjoy doing this and she makes sure you get the best experience possible.
We are thankful for all the great advice and so on.
The place is perfectly clean and comfortable. The size of the closet is great when you have a lot of luggage.
Lovely ( and friendly ) neighbourhood and location.
We stayed here twice. At the start and then again at the end of our trip. And while gone we really looked forward to come back!
I would highly recommend staying at the Garden Haven or their beautiful house.
So happy for the experience and hopefully we will be back again sometime !
...everything was perfect... very clean bedroom and great bathroom, comfortable bed and perfect communication. higly recommended!
