Stayed at Dawn's again. Lovely and homely. She's very helpful and her cottage is a quick Uber ride to anywhere you need to be.

Excellent stay! The guest house was quiet, and exactly what I needed.

Dawn's AirBnB is so great that this was our second stay in 10 months. Enough said. It's a terrific little home in a beautiful neighborhood with ample, free on-street parking. Very central in that Uber trips to Santa Monica and Venice beaches are only $6 to $7. The stay is very private and Dawn will make sure that you have everything that you need. I would definitely stay again and recommend this AirBnB to my friends and family.

It was relaxing to stay in a quiet neighborhood in Santa Monica with a nice downhill walk to the beach!. The place had charm!

This place is in a good location as its only a short taxi ride to the beach. The kitchen is not very big and limits you with regards to cooking so small snacks are probably ideal but other than that it was ok.

Dawn's place is exactly as the other reviews say! We were really happy with the guest house, it was bright and comfortable and had everything you need. Thank you!
