This private picturesque bungalow has everything you need. A comfortable bed, welcoming beverages in the fridge and a soothing fountain right outside of the door. Dawn and her husband couldn't have been nicer. The bungalow was clean and well maintained. I was surprised that the Santa Monica airport can be seen from the front porch. A few times planes flew loud and low overhead however not after dark or before 8AM. We did not have a car and would have preferred closer proximity to restaurants and shopping. There is a Whole Foods, park and Daisy Cafe 1 mile away that my husband and I walked to.

Bob's Market is much closer that whole Foods, only 1/2 mi. away

It’s cluttered it’s not very clean. The outside space is fine..parking ok. Earsplitting noise from Santa Monica airport one mile away. There wasn’t even a proper coffee maker. Mini fridge was filled with other tenants left overs and no way to make ice! 2 burner stove but not any pots or pans to cook with...just a confusing place... Dawn needs to rethink this place and what her vision is. Not fair to walk into someone’s storage unit. Plastics bins filled with sewing stuff...medicine cabinet filled with samples from planes etc no room even for basic personal items. Horrible experience.

Response from Dawn:
Was available by messaging Patty's entire stay. Never received any communication. Home is exactly as pictured in photos French press, cook top and refrigerator details are clearly stated in listing. Medicine cabinet holds amenities for guests to use. Refrigerator holds condiments for guests. SM Airport closes at night and is scheduled to close permanently. House manual (both printed and online) offers ice. Guest just needs to ask.

We had two great nights at Dawn's place. Everything was exactly as described and we would stay again if in the area! Thanks Dawn!

This being our first Airbnb experience we had some curiosity about how it would turn out. Well, I'm happy to report that everything about our stay was positive. From communication at all stages to ease of arrival and checking in we always found it to be easy. The cottage was spotless and very clean and comfortable. The backyard with water feature was charming. Loved the area location too. We'll definitely return.

The cottage was a perfect location to the beach and downtown. We enjoyed the quiet backyard in the evenings. The next door neighbor was a delight and we actually hugged each other before we left the last day! My only tip is if it's warm, bring a cooler with ice. There is a refrigerator but not a freezer/ice machine. We hope to come back soon!

Mixed feelings. Nice host, clean and good location. However, there is no AC and I stayed during a warm period so it was quite hot inside upon my arrival. In combination with an unreliable WIFI signal, I found it infeasible to work in this space. The all-in costs from fees/taxes via airbnb totaled around $200 a night and in retrospect I should have just spent a little more and got a hotel room.

Scott, Sorry you had trouble with our WiFi. We would have been happy to reboot the modem if you had let us know. Dawn & Ron
