Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We stayed at the treehouse for 4 days. It was absolutely delightful. A lovely place to relax and recharge. The roof lounge was a highlight. We parked the car and walked everywhere. Beach, restaurants, grocery all very close. Terry who greeted us was warm, welcoming and went out of her way to stock the fridge with a few items for us. Highly recommend the place!

  • O.M.G. Just looking at the picture while I write this review is making me homesick for the Treehouse. This little gem is absolutely amazing. It's not just the location that made our experience at the Treehouse one in a million, it was our host too. Terry and Caroline had snacks and wine waiting for us and we felt at home immediately. Everything you need is waiting for you in this little house: sheets, towels, clean surroundings, and wonderful ambiance. The neighborhood is awesome and you can walk to great Santa Monica staples like Urth Cafe and M Street Kitchen. You are 500 feet from the beach and I ran on the ocean front path every day. Do yourself a favor and rent this gem. I accidentally locked myself out and both Caroline and Terry jumped to action. CAN I COME BACK NOW, PLEASE?

  • The tree house was a very comfortable and quiet place, located in the heart of Venice and Santa Monica beaches. Strand St is one of the nicest blocks on the beach. It was a pleasure to walk the boardwalk and sands each morning and evening. And, as other reviewers have pointed out, the rental was spot clean, stocked with snacks and drinks, and the hosts were welcoming and very friendly. I stayed for a week and had no issues.

    The only negative comment I have is that I do not live here. I would love to come back to the tree house and recommend it to others.

  • Comfortable and lovely place, has everything you need and more. The bikes were great so was the sauna and the deck. The fool fridge of delicious food and drinks was a real pleasure, we really appreciate the extra touch. The location is very good as well, we would definitely come back again and recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area.

  • Everything about our stay at the Tree House was great. We were greeted by Terry who was very sweet, even helped get our luggage in the house. Very clean and comfortable. Awesome location.
    Caroline has thought of everything, anticipated her guests needs well. This was our first Airbnb experience and it was lovely.

    Highlights - fireplace, sun deck and fire pit, comfy bed, comfy couch, kitchen with awesome appliances and great for cooking, close to the ocean. Didn't get to use the sauna but what a nice touch. Will do next time!

    Only downfall is our time there was too short. It was rainy and the place is so nice we didn't mind staying in! This is a must if you're looking for a charming place in Santa Monica. We will be back.

    Response from Caroline:

    Thanks were fabulous guests...hope to host you again!

  • My husband and I have previously rented many vacation homes in the area, but this is our first Airbnb experience. Our adult children live near by so the location was excellent, and just a short walk to the ocean, which we love.
    Staying at the Tree House was a perfectly wonderful experience. We arrived late at night and were met at the door by Terry, who works with Caroline to assure all of our needs were met. She gave us the keys, showed us around and then left us alone. The Tree House is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly think of from toiletries to cooking staples to cooking equipment. Before our arrival, Caroline contacted us to find out what our favorite foods are for breakfast, snacks and drinks. The refrigerator was stocked with a wide assortment of things we like to eat, which meant we did not need to run to the grocery store immediately after our arrival. The space is compact, but incredibly well designed.
    The bonus to the Tree House is the beautifully private, rooftop deck which we utilized. You reach the deck by going up a spiral staircase on the outside of the building. The deck has a large built-in lounge area that easily accommodated my family who came to hang out. We lit the gas fire pit, and loved that we could listen to music through the built-n Bose speakers both inside and out. We shared wine and appetizers, and just loved being together in this great space. Additionally, there's a great sauna and outdoor shower on the deck, both of which I used - so much fun!
    Another wonderful amenity was the two beach cruisers that come with the Tree House. There are few rentals that include bikes, and this was great, it is so lovely to ride along the ocean for miles and miles.
    There is a great barbecue on the back deck, we cooked up some steaks for the family one night, and the six of us were able to eat at the table in the living area.
    Our communication with Caroline was excellent, she answered all our questions immediately, and then once we arrived, Terry, took over and we texted her with any questions we had during our stay.
    We would definitely stay here again! Totally a great experience.

  • We had an amazing long weekend at the Tree House. Caroline and Terri were super responsive and the place was charming, cozy and pristinely clean. They even asked us for grocery preferences, and the fridge was stocked when we arrived: it was like being at home (but far warmer, and a block from the beach). We took the beach cruisers to Abbott Kinney for lunch and had a parking spot at our disposal when we needed to drive. The overall experience was a thousand times better than a hotel: I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Santa Monica. Thanks, Caroline!

  • We loved spending 5 nights at the Tree House! Everything from the warm greeting by Terry to the easy communication with Caroline & Terry to the perfect Santa Monica location made this vacation terrific. The Tree House has a comfortable, warm feel from the moment you go through the gates. Everything we could possibly need was available ~ plenty of bedding and pillows, tons of towels, music, TV, wi-fi, well supplied kitchen. Wish it had been a little warmer when we were there so we could have used the roof top deck ~ maybe next time!

  • Lovely apartment and wonderful hosts. The apartment is perfectly located (around the corner from Urth Cafe- yum!), very well equipped, and feels more (email hidden)d in apartment (in the good sense) than a sterile kind of rental. Really appreciated the snacks in the refrigerator. The sauna was great. Plenty of hot water for showers. The bed was very comfortable, with down pillows and down comforters. Loved the loft area. We slept well. I was a bit concerned with having to climb down the ladder at night to reach the bathroom but it was not an issue (although it could be for someone with impaired mobility). Terry and Caroline are wonderful hosts and were responsive to our questions. This was my first airbnb experience, and it turned out great. We will definitley be back.

  • Highly recommend the Treehouse. The host Caroline has done a great job of ensuring a top quality stay for her guests, and she is very accessible and communicative. The location in the Main Street area of Santa Monica is excellent as well.
