It is a lovely place. It was perfect for me and my husband. Looks like it was recently remodeled. The decor was very tasteful. Beds were comfortable and the outside area is charming. We appreciated the parking spot because street parking is difficult to find in Santa Monica.
Fabulous location, walked 5 min to the Santa Monica farmers market on Sunday and then the gourmet food trucks in same location on Tuesday nights. The bungalow was a perfect size for the 3 of us, had everything we needed. Quiet and sunny. Never met or spoke to Christo, but everything was explained in e-mails and we never had a problem. Fantastic week in Southern California - a break from the COLD and SNOW in New England.
Christo is a great host. We enjoyed the cottage while spending six weeks in Santa Monica to escape all the NY snow. Great kitchen, superfast WiFi and comfortable beds. And very easy parking for one car, tight but usable for two cars (it is CA where you're not really allowed to walk).
Christo was very responsive. We had a problem with the lockbox and keys when we arrived. We called Christo and he immediately answered, tried to troubleshoot over the phone. When that didn't work out he promptly showed up at the property, got us in & settled and showed us around.
The bungalow is great! Good kitchen, great stove, sharp knives, decent pots and pans. Shower has great water pressure and plenty of hot water. Beds are good. Master bed has nice linens and a down comforter. The sofa in the living room was comfy and the TV had plenty of channels and there is a good library of DVDs. A supermarket is a block or 2 away. A bus stop #3 to/from downtown SM is on the corner. We will stay here again for sure if it's available next time we come for school!
The only issue we ran into was giving directions to Supershuttle for drop off/pick up to LAX. The bungalow is on a pedestrian walkway and accessed by very narrow streets. (Which gives it so much charm and character!). I had to do a little research and find a business address on Lincoln Ave, the main street near the house, as a pick up spot.
When we arrived at the cottage it was clean and presented very well. We were very pleased with our stay and would definitely recommend this property and stay here again.
Fantastic place. Our 1st Airbnb experience, and I'm a convert. Will def. stay here again if available next time I'm in Santa Monica.
The cottage was perfect for me and my family for New Years. It was cozy and clean and had everything we needed including a great laundry facility and a very cute patio. It is close to absolutely everything (coffee shops, grocery stores, rental cars and the LAX airport only 15 minutes drive.) The beach is definitely walking distance through a beautiful little neighborhood. Even my 72 year old mother walked to the beach with us.
Thanks Chirsto! We had a lovely stay.
Not exactly proximate to the beach, but a nice, clean, and quiet place. If you want to be off the beaten path, this is it.
Good location. Clean. Everything we needed. Parking is a bit tricky at times. We felt safe and secure.
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.
