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.
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!
I wish I could give 10 stars to Zizi and Harald's place in Santa Monica! And Zizi is a most gracious and sweet hostess, even though she and and Harald were away when I got to their home. But she and I were in touch (via email/text) the whole time, and I had all the information I needed to get to her home and find my way around. The place was immaculate, with loads of supplies, and Zizi had managed to have flowers in the room too! So, even though Zizi wasn't there, I felt her warm welcome. Plus, the room (which the photos depict accurately) was very comfortable and both the bedroom and bathroom were recently renovated and were perfect. I even had loads of water bottles in the closet, and among all other supplies were there.
When Zizi found out that the weather was taking a turn for cooler (and rain) she gave me directions (without any prompting on my part) to turn the heat on, which I really appreciated.
The home is conveniently located. Very close to a great Whole Foods and other neighborhood cafes and other haunts, and I walked and ran to the beach (both Venice and Santa Monica). The garden outside the room is lovely too and a great place to just sit and relax.
All in all, a wonderful, comfortable, warm place and fantastic hosts. I'd go there again tomorrow if they'd have me. I can't thank Zizi enough for her wonderful home (and also restoring my trust in Airbnb)!
This is my second visit and it was a pleasure to stay again with Zizi and Harald. They made sure I had everything I needed to feel at ease and served me a nice glass of wine upon my arrival. I can't say how wonderful and relaxing it is to stay in such a comfortable and peaceful place.
The room at Zizi and Harald was very comfortable, quiet and perfectly located. The best place I stayed at so far in Santa Monica. Both Zizi and Harald were attentive and wonderful hosts.
Zizi and Harold were brilliant hosts. They made us feel so welcome and comfortable right away. The room was beautiful and the location was perfect. They were more than willing to help us navigate public transport which can be very difficult in LA. They recommended some fantastic attractions and restaurants in the area. The breakfast in the garden was beautiful. We would highly recommend staying at Garden Haven.

We have been living in Santa Monica for 4 years and love it :). We travel extensively and this is a special place to live.
Come and visit our beautiful room and garden in between discovering Venice Beach, Santa Monica Beach, the legendary Santa Monica Pier and 3rd Street Promenade as well as everything cool and crazy that LA has to offer.
We welcome people from all over the world.
