We arrived with easy access to the home. A holiday cake was waiting for us with other little coupons and I think a bottle of wine. Directions on how to and where in the house were clearly written so we knew how to care for our week long stay. The home is bright ,open and very welcoming. You can't beat staying in this spacious home off of Montana Ave. There are plenty of great places to eat and shop. If you are ambitious, you can easily walk to the beach,the steps and 3rd street promenade. We did it all and never rented a car. We especially loved sitting outside by the gas fireplace at night and visiting with family. We loved staying here and would absolutely do it again.
We had a GREAT time at Lisa's house! It is a wonderful family home and Lisa made us feel SOO welcome. It was Xmas and there was a big Xmas tree and she left us wonderful goodies. My boys loved it. I really can't say enough how great it was and I am known for being on the fussy side. We will be back!
A fabulous property which was exactly as described. We were made to feel very welcome and at home. All rooms a good size and comfortable and a real bonus with super outdoor courtyard sitting and fireplace. A great location for the beach (could walk or drive - always found parking). Good location for local shops, banks places to eat (in fact anything you might need). We felt very comfortable strolling around the local neighbourhood which was very attractive.
We could not have asked more from the home or the owners!
The neighbourhood is very quiet yet close to the beach, shops, restaurants. We also found it easy to visit all there is to see in L.A.
There was enough space for our teenagers to spread around. We all enjoyed the solarium and the garden.
Lisa and Nick were always readily available to answer questions. They took the time to greet us when we came in and left treats. Such a nice touch!
I cannot begin to convey how lovely this home is or how gracious the owner is in a short review. The house is even prettier than the pictures. The owner was helpful with all kinds of details and extremely responsive. It is difficult to make vacationing with a family including 3-year-old twins relaxing, but she managed to put us in the right place in all my communications with her, as well as with the rare combination of an elegantly beautiful yet practical and comfortable home. We are so grateful and hope to return. You will not regret visiting this amazing home!
This was the perfect home for our weeklong stay in California. The location can't be beat - a quiet residential neighborhood within walking distance to all the great shops and restaurants on Montana. The house had an amazing layout and design and was perfect for travelling with little ones - they have a great playroom set up and Lisa and Nick even left us some additional babyproofing supplies which came in handy. The kitchen was perfectly set up and we were greeted with a great assortment of treats, which was a really nice touch . The courtyard and outdoor spaces are beautiful and we spent a lot of time out there. Wouldn't hesitate to come back!
Great hosts, lovely house and fantastic neighborhood!
Incredible location and home. So perfect for a family w/ 2 little one. Thank you so much Lisa for such a memorable vacation.
The whole experience was a dream come true. The house was beautiful, the kitchen is to die for and combined with the solarium made for the most social area in the house. The bedrooms are separate from the living/entertainment areas, which was really great for baby nap time (the guys could still have the football game on).
Lisa and Nick were amazing hosts, with all the information printed out for us, plus post-it notes to help identify the different cupboards in the kitchen. They even left an amazing Christmas basket of goodies for us. They were very easy to communicate with and they went out of their way to set up the house according to our needs.
What else? Christmas decorations! They decorated the house and the tree for our Christmas holiday, which was pretty amazing. If we come back to Santa Monica for Christmas (or any other time), I would be very happy to stay again at the gorgeous Spanish Home by the Beach.
We had a perfect stay, the house is beautiful and extremely comfortable. There is easy access from inside to the beautiful garden and the patio. One of our preferred places was the solarium next to kitchen.There is even a secret garden! We had no issues so there was no need to contact our hosts. Everything was explained in the instruction sheet given to us prior to arrival. We are hoping to stay there again on future visits to Santa Monica. Being the perfect accommodations allowed us to enjoy the exciting sites in Los Angeles and Santa Monica.
