Una answered all our questions very promptly, on the evening we arrived the host popped over and showed us how some of the equipment in the house worked, this was very helpful. The house is exactly as described and we were overall very pleased with our stay. I travelled with my husband and 3 young children and there was more than enough room for all of us. The house was clean, light, airy and everything worked well. The kitchen is particularly well equipped with a large fridge/freezer and everything else you would expect. The garden is also beautiful with a lovely outside eating area and two deckchairs to soak up the LA sun. All in all we were all really happy with our stay and would highly recommend this property.
House was clean and spacious. The back yard/patio is lovely. We had our breakfast while admiring the hummingbirds. The neighborhood is great for walking. Definitely a positive experience.
Great location. Very quaint backyard. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, although we found the house a bit more tired out (in terms of condition) than we expected and hence would say it is overpriced. Mattress is middle bedroom is poor quality and has zero support. Towel bar in main bathroom has been moved a few inches to side and old holes just covered up with masking tape.
We had a wonderful experience staying here. The place was very comfortable for me, my wife, our two young children, and my mother. The rooms are spacious and were very clean. The beds were very cozy with nice blankets and pillows etc. The outdoor patio was a zen garden paradise - not designed with children in mind, but a gorgeous contemplative space nonetheless. The neighborhood is tree-lined, quiet and beautiful, conveniently located a short walk to Whole Foods and Franklin Park -- both ideal for families with young kids. Overall, an excellent stay. Thanks Una!
The home was cute and spacious. Neighborhood was nice. Getting in was easy. And the beds were comfortable. However, unfortunately, we had quite a few issues. The dishwasher and garbage disposal were broken. (And although they did their best to fix the dishwasher promptly, this also meant our host was on the couch for a couple hours waiting on the repairman, and it still wasn't able to be fixed during our stay.) The oven door and master bath door didn't shut properly. Worst of all, the wireless was nonexistent, and my husband had to work from Starbucks everyday. There weren't the right utensils to cook with in the kitchen.
Sadly, overall we were disappointed. I guess what I would say is, if you need this as a sleep/shower vacation home you'll be fine. But while an older Santa Monica home is cozy, it also comes with the issues of an older home. And if you want to actually do some living in it (cooking, work on wi-fi) then you might be better off somewhere else.
Everything about our 3-night Christmas holiday stay at the "Santa Monica Cozy House" was stellar!
NEIGHBORHOOD: 1) quiet, pretty and peaceful 2) grocery store/Starbucks/Walgreens/park/several restaurants & cafe's all within walking distance
HOUSE: 1) clean and well maintained 2) roomy 3) basic amenities & conveniences available (like coffee pot, microwave, dishes, linens, etc) 4) lovely yard
HOST: friendly & responsive
Frankly, we could not have asked for more; if we ever have a similar stay in or near Santa Monica, would certainly stay there again.
This was our first experience with this kind of home rental (as opposed to a hotel stay) and we were delighted with our stay! The whole reservation process was easy and straightforward and the hosts were both gracious and responsive.
Una's place is great. It's spacious and has a very good layout. We had a wonderful time. Una is responsive, flexible and super easy to communicate with. The yard is a beautiful bonus. Overall we had a great experience and would enjoy staying here again. It was the perfect location for our needs and is in a great neighborhood.
I am a florist and I like to take walks. I love Santa Monica, nice weather, good restaurants and near the beach. Welcome to come and visit us! We love meeting new people and having them enjoy the house and there stay. The house is special and people are always happy!
