We very much enjoyed our stay at The Getty House. Unique and cozy home, great location, and Robert was/is very professional in his approach. Couldn't ask for more for the price re. a week in Santa Monica. And the house is generally kid friendly, the stairs are not steep or dangerous, no major sharp corners or precious furnishings to worry about, etc.
We arrived in the evening so the condo's location was still a mystery to us. Our minds were blown waking up to an ocean view that stretched from Venice Beach to the Santa Monica Pier! A more perfect location can not be found. The inside of the condo was beautifully decorated with original art and upscale furnishings, just as the pictures showed.However, what made our stay even better was meeting our facinating host, Robert. It was like meeting an old family friend and coming home for a visit! There is no doubt that we will return often to enjoy this incredible experience again!
What a great space! The guest house had everything I needed to feel at home and comfortable for a week in November. The location was great being close to the best parts of Santa Monica and the beach. Would definitely stay again.
Robert is a fantastic host and I love his guest house! This place is great (super clean and well kept). It has a comfortable open floor plan that's impeccably designed. The neighborhood is fantastic, quintessential Santa Monica. It is peaceful and quiet and yet you can easily walk to Main Street to hang at Peets in the morning or grab dinner in the evening. I was working during my stay so the fast Fios internet connection was very important to me. Robert provides you with everything you need - hd tv, plenty of towels, extra sheets, an iron, hairdryer, kitchenware, etc. + a nice bottle of wine. ;) I look forward to staying here again (in the not so distant future) and HIGHLY recommend it to anyone looking for a place in the Santa Monica or Venice area.
Quiet, beautifully designed apartment in a great neighborhood. 10 minute walk to the beach, 5 minutes to high quality bars and restaurants. Even better, use a bike and access the beachside cycle path north to Santa Monica or South to Venice and beyond.
Robert is a great host, welcoming, friendly and responsive. Overall, highly recommended.
Robert was a wonderful host and made us most welcome during our stay in Santa Monica. The property was perfect – with a beautiful and well considered design it fulfilled our every need during our stay and is in the perfect location to explore surrounding Santa Monica and Venice as well as further afield along the Pacific coast and central LA. I hope to come back soon and would recommend this to anyone.
The property is excellent - a super quiet street - only 1km (8min walk to the beach) and 15 min walk to the best shopping strip in this part of LA.
The main room is light, high ceilings, a pleasure to spend time in.
Only down side - it really is only a 1-bedroom property - the upstairs bedroom is the entire floor and is amazing - the downstairs study has a sofa bed only and is not great.
Aside from that I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a quiet very pleasant apartment/hotel room alternative.
Robert was a great host and made us feel at home in the Guest which is a fantastic place to stay. Modern, cosy, quiet and very safe. Robert was also very helpful and gave us tips on how to get around in the area. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone who's coming through Santa Monica.
I'm tempted not to give the Getty House a review because I want it all to myself!
It's a beautiful house. Amazing design, very quiet but close to some great spots in Santa Monica and Venice.
We hope to return some time soon.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the "loft." In fact, the space was perfect. If it was a rental, I'd be first in line.
The space is bright and airy. Very quiet neighborhood. Blissful sleeping under an open skylight. Within walking distance to everything you need...beach, main street, etc..
Robert was my first guest and he is a perfect guest! He is punctual, very friendly and an easy-going and uncomplicated person. Robert left the apartment in perfect condition. Moreover, it seemed to be even cleaner than before :)
@Robert: I really hope to see you next year (or even earlier) at the next Berlinale, you are always welcome!
Guest perfection.Robert was a superb communicator, low-impact guest, and an just an overall gracious, conscientious, and wonderful temporary tenant. He left the place immaculate, was totally upfront and flexible, and brought a great attitude to the whole experience. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Robert is a dear friend. He's caring, reliable, wise and a fabulous host. He also knows a lot about the area and will provide a wealth of information particularly if you are interested in anything to do with the arts in Los Angeles. I've stayed in the Getty House and Eco Studio and they are fabulous properties.
