This is such a great little place to stay, we had a brilliant trip. Erika just couldn't have been a more responsive and welcoming host, she gave us loads of tips of things to do and see and checked in several times during our week to see if we were doing ok. (The food trucks on Main and Ocean on Tuesdays were her suggestion and we definitely recommend too, amazing food). She was also very accommodating and flexible about check-in and check-out times, which, travelling with two children, I really appreciated.
The bungalow is in a great location, only a 5 min stroll to the beach and to Main Street, it couldn't have been better. We loved the way it was decorated too, very arty and stylish, it has a great feel to it. And the bed must be one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in!
Erika arranged for an air bed in the sitting room for the children and it worked perfectly, they were very comfortable and we had plenty of space for the three of us. She also left a very generous welcome basket with lots of really thoughtful items included (like toothpaste which came in handy!).
This place, and host, is a real gem. Highly recommended.
Very comfortable bungalow in a great location, just blocks from the beach, shops, restaurants etc. Private, quiet, clean and cozy. Erika is responsive and accommodating. And she has a great vinyl collection with turntable. I would recommend to anyone looking for a fun escape to the beach.
I had a great 2 weeks at Erika's place. The location is perfect, only 3 blocks away from the beach and close to lots of cute stores. The place is small but charming and clean, with fully functional kitchen and endless entertainment programs provided by NetFlex, hulu, etc.
Highly recommend it!
Erica has a delightful beach bungalow in a perfect location. The bungalow is well and truly equipped and the terrace provided a lovely relaxation area in the sun. Just a stroll from rawvolution and Urth cafe and on to the beach - fantastic! The bed was super comfy and Erica was always contactable and swift to respond. Erica was very accommodating of our extra needs - like extra towels, duvet and hair dryer. Thank you for a fabulous stay if we could have stayed longer we would have!!
I had such a nice time at Erika's bungalow! The location was perfect, just 2 blocks to main street and 3-4 to the beach. The decor was lovely and the patio was tranquil -- a lovely place to enjoy my coffee and a book, or a glass of wine and cheese in the evening. The strung lights really added to the charm. She had a lovely welcome note and encouraged me to make myself at home. Her kitchen is well-stocked with cookware and all sorts of spices and condiments if you should decide to cook. I also appreciated the filtered water!
The bed was so comfortable and the neighborhood quiet for a restful sleep. Although I didn't meet Erika, she was a gracious host. She communicated with me clearly until I was in the house. She was luckily even able to accommodate my request to arrive an hour early and stay an hour late. I know that will not often work out when guests are back to back, but she made every effort to help. I had a few questions while I was there and she was quick to respond with a text. Three thumbs up for that!
If you aren't able to get a parking pass, I found parking easily every day on a "free/open" parking street just one block east, no problem. While perusing Main every day, I enjoyed lots of green juices and healthy coffees available. For a quick bite, I recommend "Sunny Blue," an Asian rice-ball place (not sure how to describe) just south of the bungalow, and just opened while I was there, the long-awaited "Aussie Pie" just north. Yum! For more of a meal (any meal), I can't say enough about Gjelina on Abbot Kinney -- a longer walk, drive, or bike ride away. I also enjoyed a light breakfast and coffee close to the house called Amelie. Urth Coffee is also great.
If you want to rent a bike, just head to the beach and walk slightly north. I recommend paying for the "overnight." for not much more than the half-day rate, you keep the bike for 24 hours and can go further afield.
Overall, I had a beautiful stay in Santa Monica and recommend Erika as host, and her perfectly-located bungalow.
Erika’s place is a great choice for staying in the Santa Monica area being only a few blocks from the beach, shops, restaurants, as well as Venice Beach and Santa Monica Pier.
My husband and I loved our stay here and look forward to coming back one day. The place was very clean and comfortable, beautifully decorated and we loved sitting out in the sunny courtyard with a glass of wine!
Erika put together a welcome pack for us and was always very quick to respond in our communication. Thanks for hosting us!
If you are looking for a comfortable, well decorated, adorable beach cottage in a great location-this is it! I had such a nice stay. Awesome access to the fun shops and restaurants on Main Street in Santa Monica, and the beach was only five minutes away! Erika went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable. Communication was clear and check in and check out were easy. The house was clean, the patio was amazing, and the bed was extremely comfortable. A great place to stay for some time alone or for a romantic trip. Would love to stay again! Thank you Erika for all your hospitality!
La casa de Erika es muy acogedora y la terraza es realmente agradable para cenar en verano o tomar algo. El barrio es muy tranquilo y seguro. Se puede aparcar pero no en la misma calle aunque no es un problema. La cama es de lo mejor , grande y comodisima (King size) y muy alta. Además de aire acondicionado hay ventilador de techo. Hay otra cama hinchable doble por si viene mas gente con lo cual es muy practico aunque no la usamos. Volveremos seguro si vamos a Santa Mónica otra vez.
Erika siempre estuvo pendiente de todo y nos agasajo con unos detalles botella de vino y chocolates x toda la casa, un encanto. Las instrucciones de como funciona todo no faltaron para hacernos sentir como en casa.
Erika's place in Santa Monica is great. Very homey, comfortable and well decorated. The outdoor space is awesome. If we had spent more time there, it would've been a great place to have a few people over for drinks. We settled for reading out in the sun in the mornings.
Erika made the check-in / check-out process really easy. She is super nice, easy to reach and got in touch to make sure everything was OK.
I used to live in Santa Monica -- not far from Erika's place -- for many years. This house is the absolute perfect location. It's two blocks from Main St and the Sunday Farmers Market; a 15 minute walk from downtown Santa Monica; and a 10 minute walk to the Venice boardwalk. We were able to easily get to all my favorite spots, and even swing back to the house to take a break or change.
The combination of a great host and a great place helped make it an awesome weekend.
Erika was a great guest, she left my room in great conditions and was respectful of my house rules. I'd love to have her back anytime.
