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 always respect your privacy.
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.
Groceries, coffee, etc. are within 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

Dawn's place was absolutely perfect and exactly as described. A gorgeous space, a short spin to the beach. It's a guest house behind Dawn's main house, however completely seperate and private.
Dawn made us feel very welcome. Excellent communication and some great tips for the area (e.g. parking, etc.). She gave us our own privacy completely, and was so fabulous and ready to help and offer advice when we asked.
An excellent host and an excellent Air B&B choice.
Great little guesthouse in a cute garden behind the main house. Small and cozy but looks just like the pictures. Convenient location and access to a bike, which is great since the house is about a mile to the beach. Dawn was very helpful! Would definitely stay again.
Everything was great. The place was just as described. Dawn was the best host.
Guest bungalow clean, comfortable and equipped with basics and a few little extra thoughtful amenities. Dawn was friendly and respectful of my privacy. Convenient street parking. Convenient location.
I enjoyed my stay. Dawn made everything easy to understand in terms of accessing the guest house. It was in tip top shape when I arrived. Nice neighborhood which feels very safe. Ideal for a single person or couple wanting pleasant, economical lodging in Santa Monica.
Dawn and Ron were fantastic hosts. The accommodation was as described and perfect for what we needed. They made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to help us. Dawn was full of useful tips and ideas on what to do in the area. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend
