This is a private unit (not shared). There is shared yard area with table and chairs that is for your use. Keep in mind that since the shared laundry is in the same area, other guests may venture into the yard to use the laundry. Since the other guests have their own outdoor space, it's unlikely they would "hang out" in this area, but it's possible you would see them when they or the housekeeper use the laundry.
I'm pretty "hands-off" but available by text, email or phone. I try to leave things set up and provide all info needed via email or in the FAQ binder you will find in unit.

Kathyn's cottage was everything she said. It was clean. It was cozy. It was within walking distance to everything: the beach, yoga, restaurants galore, and ample shopping. The neighborhood was cozy and friendly while the entrance to the cottage itself was private and out of sight. Even the one issue we had with plumbing was handled quickly (she had a plumber on site in an hour). Kudos. I would certainly stay there again.
Kathryn was a great host! We spent a well remembered time at her exactly as described Santa Monica apartment. We absolutely loved it and couldn't have hoped for more. Thank you Kathryn, I will definitely get back to you if I get to stay in LA again!
The place was exactly what we had hoped for. It was perfectly located in Santa Monica near the beach and downtown Santa Monica. We also met Kathryn who was very kind and gave us all the advices for our trip to be perfect. Thank you for a nice stay Kathryn!
I booked Kathryn's cottage for 8 nights, the last 2 nights the cottage was double booked, but Kathryn solved it smoothly by giving us an upgrade to the bigger casita right next door!
The cottage was nice and clean and very cozy and location was great with walking distance to the ocean and Santa Monica's 3rd street promenade. Although we didn't meet Kathryn in person she handled the information for access to the cottage very well and she had a message with a bottle of wine waiting for us in the entrance when we arrived.
We were in total 4 people sharing the cottage and it could be a little crowded when we pulled out the bed sofa, but it wasn't such a big problem for us.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay with Kathryn and had a really good time in Santa Monica!
Great location in Santa Monica. We found everything what we needed in the apartment. We didn't get to meet our host but she was very helpful when we communicated via email.
When we arrived, we were really disappointed with the actual status of the "cottage" which we had booked for one week. We called Kathryn and she was immediately cooperative and gave us the "casita", a nice, roomy and clean apartment with a nice living room, large kitchen, etc and all the amenities you need (and a lot more - thanks Kathryn). The location in convenient, a few minutes walk to Downtown Santa Monica, the beach, pier, etc. Supermarket is close and parking was always available directkly in front of the house. Kathryn asked us about the "cottage" and our complaints, I am sure that things have been improved since.
We had a very pleasant two weeks in a comfortable apartment. Kathryn was very attentive and took care of any problems. We felt safe and secure.
We enjoyed our stay and Kathryn was responsive and easy to deal with. The location was near the beach & Promenade. It was stocked with dishes, linens and things we needed to make ourselves at home. We would come back and stay again.
