We had a wonderful stay in a very central location! The cottage is as pictured, and everything in clean and beautiful working condition. The shower water pressure is excellent (something important to me!) and the wifi fast and reliable. Parking passes are provided for street parking but do be careful and check the signs (we got fined the first night but this was from our own carelessness!). This was a great first Air BNB experience : )
Tessa was so lovely to wait for us to come in after our first flight was cancelled and our second one delayed. She showed us everything and was very accommodating. We had everything we needed.
The small house was exactly what we needed for the week. It's an old apartment but very clean, neat, and nicely furnished. The towels and sheets were great. Everything was as described. Thanks.
Tessa was very accommodating of an unexpected change in our schedule, and the cottage itself was really adorable and as good or better than we expected. House instructions were good and helped us navigate some of the quirks of being in an older home (like the heater), the wifi worked well and the little yard was very cute and convenient as well. Parking was not too difficult and the street was very quiet. Our dog was very happy here as well and we did not find her nervous or upset as there were not any unexpected noises or loud animals in the neighborhood. Very peaceful! We look forward to staying here again sometime!
Tessa's little bungalow met all my expectations after seeing the lovely pictures and knowing what a pleasant, quiet neighborhood it is in. I was commuting to UCLA every day--20 min in rush-hour traffic, so plenty convenient for my needs. And she takes very good care of her guests, making sure everything is working well for you. I loved getting up each morning and shuffling out to the cute kitchen to make my tea and breakfast. All that was missing was a kitty to make it truly feel like home!
Great place! Tessa is a kind and gracious host, and I really enjoyed my stay. The neighborhood is quiet, so it's a good place to really relax! It's a comfortable, clean, and cozy cottage. Loved it.
The house fully met our needs and is in a great location. Tessa was a good host, was easily contactable and able to answer any queries we had.
We would definitely stay there again.
Tessa was great. She made sure everything was cozy clean for us (including water bottles and apples!) - we felt right at home.
The apartment is very comfortable and in a great location. Tessa was easy to communicate with and very helpful. A great airbnb experience!
My experience in Tessa's beautiful bungalow exceeded my expectations! As a first-time user of Airbnb, I wasn't sure what to expect, but Tessa was incredibly welcoming, charming, attentive, and full of helpful information about the area - in short, the perfect hostess! Her home is absolutely lovely and cozy, with everything I needed for my happy 5 week stay in Santa Monica. The location was great - a short car ride to the beach, bank, grocery store, pharmacy, and all the fun restaurants and shopping streets in the area - as well as being a nice neighborhood in which to walk. I felt safe as a single woman, the parking was easy with her passes, the bed was especially comfortable, and I particularly enjoyed having coffee outside in the mornings! I will definitely want to stay here again when I return to Santa Monica!
Tessa was an amazing host. She was very prompt and helpful in communicating before we arrived to her home. She greeted us as we arrived, even though we only got in late at night. Tessa's place was wonderful. The location in Santa Monica was ideal and just minutes away from everywhere we wanted to go on our trip. It's just off two main streets (Santa Monica and Wiltshire), but it's in a very quiet residential neighbourhood so you definitely won't be disturbed. Tessa gave us a parking pass, so it was easy to get free parking right on her street. The home itself was very comfortable. It had absolutely all the amenities that we needed for our four night stay. I traveled with my parents who slept in the bedroom, while I slept on one of the two couches in the living room that folds out into a futon. There was a full kitchen and a dining table which made it easy for us to eat out breakfast at home each morning. Everything was absolutely perfect and Tessa even texted me during our stay to make sure that we were taken care of.
This is a wonderful place to stay the next the time that you are visiting LA and Santa Monica - I highly recommend it!
Tessa was a great guest, as was her mother for the portion of the trip I was hosting the two of them. Easy to get along with, easy to host and highly recommend to any host.
Tessa and Brutus were the perfect guests. Quiet, clean, respectful, engaging... I wish all my Airbnb experiences were as good.
