Interaction with Guests
Our interaction with guests varies a lot, depending on our schedules at the time they are staying with us, as well as on the guests' interest in interacting. There are times when guests come and go without even meeting us, and other times that we become very friendly and even eat some meals with them. Mostly, we've found that guests prefer to be fairly private, and we respect their wishes.

We enjoyed very much our stay, the kids loved Susan's toys and the garden. Rearding the kitchenette, we've missed a frying pan and a slotted spoon to cook some eggs. But overall, I would stay again. Great neighbourhood for jogging, and very safe. Thanks Susan, best regards!
Wonderful place to spend a few days in Santa Monica. The property was very clean and everything was explained very well in the welcoming instructions. We loved the neighborhood and having parking on the street was a huge plus! I would definitely stay here again!
This Spanish style guest home was a very comfortable relaxing space for our stay. Comfortable beds, plenty of amenities and a very gracious host. I highly recommend it and would come back again!
Very nice place to stay in Santa Monica! This guest house was located in a fantastic neighborhood, with easy walking access to Whole Foods, Starbucks, in addition to local shops. Comfortably slept our family of four. Good location to use as a "home base" when seeing attractions in Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and other central areas!
We had a quick stop at Susan's place. It was a quick drive from LAX. Beautiful neighborhood in Santa Monica close to Riviera golf club and Brentwood. Her backyard had a wonderful perfume of flowers and ocean air. Slept comfortably with the windows open. Very quiet and safe place. Thanks!
Susan made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived with suggestions for dinner and what our group of 4 should do. The guest house was wonderful and had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and she had towels, filtered water, tea, and more for us to use. The location is also perfect--very close to beach and downtown.
This is a great casita in a great location in Santa Monica. Susan made us feel very welcome, her house information was clear and easy to follow, and the casita is quiet and peaceful. We loved staying there and have already recommended it to others.
