I had a great time at Rachael's bungalow. It was perfect for one person and it felt so clean and fresh. The proximity to the beach, shops, food, groceries was great - even on foot (I didn't even use a car). I liked being able to prepare food (yes, the kitchen is tiny but it's totally usable) and made hearty use of the fresh water cooler. The claw tub was a great way to rest my tired feet after my long walks, too. I got to meet Rachael a few times (and her sweet cat) and she was really friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again when visiting the area. Thanks for everything!
We had a great stay at Rachael's Santa Monica bungalow. Excellent location and a quiet neighbourhood for the weekend getaway. Loved the bamboo lined driveway and fenced back yard to take in the natural surroundings. Jogging (or walking) distance to the beach and local shops. All the most basic amenities were available and provided for kitchen and bathroom needs. The space was very clean and had a lovely vintage California charm! Thanks!
On the plus side:it was in a good position, very clean and the bed was comfortable. Rachael was a caring host (emailed to encourage me to turn on a heater on a cold night.) On the minus side: it was very basic, the room was rather dark and the kitchenette was really tiny and difficult to use because of lack of space. Compared with an efficiency rented by a friend on 17th it was on the expensive side.
Loved Rachael's place. It was clean and centrally located in Santa Monica. It was the perfect size for one person. I would definitely stay again.
Rachel's place was great. Everything was very clean and the decor was fantastic. Rachel was very accommodating, even allowing us to check in a little early. Highly recommended!
Fantastic little place very clean very quite highly recommend. I would use it again.
Rachael could not have been nicer to share her lovely home with my girlfriend and I. She was super accommodating to our skewed travel plans and made us feel welcome in the middle of the night - sorry again Rachael! - I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing stay in a beautiful neighborhood.
P.S. The stars at night were beautiful! It's just far enough away from the light smog to see some constellations quite beautifully.
my friend Sigrun and me had a wonderful stay at Rachael´s beautiful guesthouse in the heart of Santa Monica!
Even though it was christmas, we could sit in her beautiful garden and enjoy the southern californian life :-)
We can highly recommend the place and if you love cats, her cat albiga will make this a perfect stay...!
Rachel has a sweet space in a good neighborhood in Santa Monica. She's also a pleasant and considerate host. The only glitch was that the internet didn't work while we were there. Rachel had recently switched providers. She offered us a free stay in compensation which was really nice, we thought.
We had a great stay here, the bungalow was the perfect size for me and my boyfriend, it was clean, comfortable, had a full kitchen, and Rachael was an awesome host. She was easy to reach/communicate with via text message. We had our own privacy which was very nice too. Great neighborhood, great location! Thank you Rachael!
