Interaction with Guests
WHAT YOU'LL HEAR FROM ME, "Hello and how can I help you? Do you need anything?" Never hesitate to ask. If you want to chat more... we love to but, will mostly leave you alone.
This is a safe, quiet Santa Monica neighborhood called Sunset Park. Easy walk to Ocean Park Blvd and all that you'll need. Most of the homes in the area are single family.
Many things are walking distance and a detailed map is provided in the unit. The Big Blue Bus (closest stop is #8 Bus at Fairview Library) is a safe, easy, inexpensive way to get around. And many visitors find it easy to connect with the larger LADOT municipal bus system and Metro trains. LAX is 6 miles to the south.
Other Things to Note
Many guests love to return each time they have work or travel or a family event that brings them to the area. My husband and I travel a great deal, so we stocked the amenities we like to see when we are away.
Quiet, respectful guest will share yard with owners.

Please leave the space as you find it.
Dawn and her husband greeted us and brought out umbrellas for the rare weather event of rain in Santa Monica. She gave us a cloth bag for grocery shopping because bags are not provided at supermarkets. Each day Dawn asked if we needed advice about restaurants or sites to visit, and special passes or discount coupons at some of them. Thanks, Dawn!
Great place to stay in Santa Monica.
Quiet, spacious and in a safe location.
Wonderful, quiet, well-kept neighborhood. Cute, well-appointed and comfortable bungalow situated in a beautifully landscaped backyard. The host was very welcoming and checked back frequently to make sure that we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The room had a very interesting library and the host provided directions and menus to the more popular area restaurants.
Dawn welcomed me to her lovely garden and guesthouse as I "checked in." She was kind, gracious, and checked in with me often to be sure I had all I needed. The cottage and gardens were beautiful, the bed very comfy, and the kitchenette very useful. It was clean, bright, and overall delightful. The neighborhood was beautiful, safe, and quiet despite being close to the airport. The location was about 2.5 miles from the beach and close to a lot of wonderful amenities. I will gladly stay in her cottage again!
