We're a happy little family - Erin, Hudson, and me. We used to live in the bungalow, then the cottage, but don't anymore. Erin's a middle school teacher, I'm a documentary filmmaker, and ... Hudson's a kid.

Location was great. House was exactly as described. The porch and garden area are awesome! The alley was a little scary, but all was fine.
Christo was very responsive and helpful. Home is nice and cozy. We enjoyed our stay very much. The living room is small but the outdoor patio was wonderful. It is about 10 blocks from the beach but we are walkers so it was fine. Took us 30 minutes to walk to the pier. We had some problems with the TV but Christo came out to fix a bad cable. Overall I would come back to the cozy cottage - Christo was a great host!
I had a great stay at Christo's with two other guests. The home was described exactly as is and was a great place to stay. Highly recommended
The beach cottage was clean and bright, convenient to both Santa Monica and Venice Beach (with a parking spot!). The USB stereo hook-up was great for playing music from our iPhones, and the beds were very comfortable. Overall great value for a cozy place to stay in a great location.
This is our first trip with Airbnb and it was a major success due to Christo's place in Santa Monica. Our stay was 7 days (not long enough).
The house was nice and close to the beach just as Christo described. We were 7 blocks to the beach & we easily walked down to Main street for breakfast and coffee and then a nice warm/sunny walk to either Venice or Santa Monica beaches. Who knew this house is perfectly located between the 2 famous beaches, less than a 15 minute walk on the beach path and we could be at either beach. Perfect!
The house was very charming, have everything we wanted, private enclosed courtyard, private parking space, washer/dryer, full kitchen etc, too much to list.
Can't ask for a more centrally located house in L.A. by the beach. I think we'll be back for a longer stay next time.
Thank you Christo!
Beautiful little relic, with overtones of happy family life; lots of kids toys, very nice indoor and outdoor cooking/eating arrangements, interesting and beautiful artwork, all in a vibrant community- lots of interesting shops, restaurants, beaches, as well all basic necessities all very close.
The house was ideally located for our family vacation. It was very clean & neat and a great value, perfect for a couple and one child. Only negative was that recent rain had warped the front gate, leaving it unable to shut or lock, which left us feeling insecure given that the house's entrance is on an alley.
The cottage was perfect! Everything is exactly as described. You cannot go wrong with this one.
As soon as my co-workers and I arrived to Christo's Cozy Santa Monica Beach Cottage, we were welcomed by his lovely homekeeper named Francisca who graciously explained how to lock up, how to turn on the TV and how to do laundry. She also informed us that the bottle of wine on the kitchen counter was for us to enjoy.
From this point onwards, we were all extremely pleased with Christo's cottage. Not only is it clean and comfortable, but it is about a 20-minute walk away from the Santa Monica Pier and about a 9-minute cab ride away from Venice Beach. The cottage has everything anyone on vacation would need - including vacationers who are sick of eating at restaurants and want to cook for themselves and those who forgot shampoo and conditioner!
I loved this cottage and would definitely recommend it to anyone. The patio is gorgeous and enchanted, accompanied with orange and lime trees - giving all guests the true Californian experience.
I hope I can stay again soon! Thanks!
We had a wonderful time at the cozy Santa Monica beach cottage. The space was perfect for our weekend visit. The neighborhood is pedestrian friendly, relaxed, and quiet.
Great guest welcome back anytime
Christo booked the apartment for some of his traveling guests and was a pleasure to work with! His friends were respectful and very kind as well.
Christo was easy to get along with and nicely communicative. Was able to see some of his original art work while he was here. A true artist who's welcome back any time.
Lovely family, easy going, left the place clean and tidy.
Christo was a great guest! He was in town with two colleagues and they stayed at my condo for four nights. Communication was easy and efficient and they treated my condo like it was their own home. When they left all the beds had been stripped, the dishes had been run through the dishwasher and the trash ready to be taken out and already sorted with recyclables. Very friendly and interesting to converse with about their work and AirBnB. I would highly recommend Christo and his colleague Grant to other AirBnB hosts.
