Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • April has a beautiful sunny garden with a gorgeous little granny flat in the corner. We loved staying here for 3 nights. Great location close to the beach. April was super friendly, and flexible with arrival times. Will definitely recommend April's place to our travelling friends. Thanks so much.

  • April's place is phenomenol! And April herself an amazing host. The room was clean and spacious with all the creature comforts of home. To be honest it looks better than the pictures. Her house is the ideal place to base yourself in LA with easy walking distance to all amenities i.e. Main street shops, the Pier, Whole Foods, 3rd street promenade...the list is endless. Me and my partner absolutely loved it there and are already talking of returning to LA specifically to April's gorgeous home. Thanks so much April for being accomodating. Will definitely be back.

    Oh my gosh!
    Loved you two!!!

  • This was an ideal place to stay. April is friendly, welcoming and very helpful. Her guesthouse is quite comfortable - great bed, great shower.
    Her yard really is beautiful. I spent hours there, reading and soaking up the sun.
    I recommend staying here without any reservations.

  • April was great and her place was so peaceful and perfect! We had just come off of a couple of nights in downtown LA and this was the perfect respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. The room was cozy and clean. The location is great; close to the beach and both the Santa Monica and Venice Beach beachfronts. My husband and I would love to come back again!

  • The listing was better than expected. The room is gorgeous and comfortable and April respects her guests' privacy. She was there when hubby and I needed her otherwise she left us to our own devices - which for me was a huge plus. She offered advice about the area and was by all means open and inviting and I'm sure was welcome to be more involved, we just didn't choose that. We rented bikes from her and a parking space right out front and it was easy and hassle free.

    April's home is definitely within walking distance of everything. I walked to Urth Caffe every morning for breakfast, and walked down Main Street to the third street promenade for some shopping, as well. Main Street is a great place to walk, and a great way to see the neighborhood. We also walked to Santa Monica Pier, Palisades Park, and got fresh squeezed juice from a little place on Main St. on our way back to April's. We rented the bikes for a day and rode to Venice Beach.

    The water pressure in the shower was great, the bed was very comfortable, and the space was inviting with great style and decore. There is a small refrigerator that April stocked with filtered water, and coffee for the coffee maker. April has definitely perfected the little things that provide comfort, not to mention the great garden space directly outside of the window.

    I have to admit we were worried about what our experience would be as this was our first Air BNB experience and we'd been cancelled on last minute by our original host. I am so glad that happened or we never would have had the great experience at April's lush garden oasis. Definitely check her out! It is perfect for a couple or a single person.

    Wow Sarah Thanks!!!
    I didn't need to write a description of this place after your review!
    Very sweet!

  • April was a great host, and made the stay very comfortable. The room was very simple and clean, with plenty of room to hang and store clothing.

    The location was fantastic--we spent many days down at the beach, body surfing or bike riding. The shopping on Main street was fun too, and great restaurant places.

    The Oasis was perfect to come home to, very calm and quiet.

  • April was a great host, made us feel at home. We had an amazing time. The house is very close to MAIN st and the beach. Everything was very clean and nicely done. If you are looking for a place to stay in Santa Monica, this is it. I loved that the room is outside the house with its own private bathroom inside the bedroom. Thank you April!

    Response from April:

    You all were sweet!

  • Great location and the place was just as described. We really loved it and would highly recommend staying at April's if you're in the Santa Monica area.

  • April's place is in a great spot, only 5m walk from the beach and 15m to both Santa Monica Pier in one direction and Venice/Abbott Kinney Blvd in the other. The bed was really comfy and the beautiful garden is a relaxing spot to chill with a book or magazine. The garden also keeps out a lot of noise so it's a very quiet spot. April is a super host, easy to chat with or leaves you to your own devices if that's what your after. Would definitely stay at April's again if I get back to Santa Monica!

    February 2014
  • Great host, listing was described very well and met all my expectations. Can't beat the location either, very happy with my stay.
