Raised in Santa Monica. I love this city. I live in the house I grew up in.
This location is very peaceful.

Rachael's place was cute, quiet and clean. It worked well for me since it was close to where I needed to be. Rachael was very responsive and accommodating and I felt at home. I would stay here again. I appreciated all the little extras as well.
We can't recommend Rachel and Michael's Californian bungalow more highly. We got to live in suburban Santa Monica ...but still only an awesome walk to the beach. Rachel and Michael...thank you for recommending we get a car to drive to Malibu, not only did you save our lives (ahhh...Bike riding there, WHAT were we THINKING?) but we just had such an awesome day.
To anyone thinking of staying here, we recommend you enjoy the walk to the beach (take Washington or Arizona street) and talk to everybody you meet. Soak up the Californian culture....this is what this pad is all about.
Rachel was an awesome host, she responded quickly, accurately, and gave us all the information we needed to know for our visit. Our stay was comfortable, private, and relaxing. She was very accommodating and made things very easy for us so that all we needed to do was show up and have a good time. Loved the room - it was comfortable, clean and so charming. Would love to have my own room like this one and would definitely recommend it to others.
Rachael had everything ready for us before check-in time. Her communications with us were prompt and information was accurate. The room was immaculately clean, the bed was comfortable, and since Santa Monica winter/spring nights can be cool, we were happy that the little heater she supplied warmed the room perfectly all night long. The decor and arrangement of the bungalow's furniture was slightly different than the pics, making the room seem a bit smaller. The layout is a little strange: you enter into a small kitchen, walk through the bathroom to the main room. The current photo of the place is taken from the entrance of the sitting room/closet. But there was more than enough room for our things. I appreciate Rachael's attention to detail: a large mirror in the sitting room and a water cooler. Two suggestions: First, the backyard garden was a little unkempt and seemed neglected. It could be lovely with all the wildflowers. Second, the walls between Rachael's house and the bungalow are paper thin. On our second night, there was a small gathering at Rachael's. Folks were thoughtful enough to shut it down by 11:00-11:30, and there was no loud music, but it was a party and sounded like one! Certainly the noise wasn't unmanageable, and some guests might not mind, but if you need consistent quiet, this might be something to consider before you rent. Last, the neighborhood and location are perfect. It is residential and quiet. Montana Avenue is within easy walking distance and has lots of restaurants and shops. The rest of Santa Monica is minutes away. Thanks, Rachael.
I had a wonderful stay in the bungalow. Great neighborhood, quiet, close to town, the beach and easy street parking. Rachael was a terrific host and made sure everything was clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying here.
This place was easy to access, great location, and so great that it includes a parking pass for the area. The kitchen is small and dark but it served our purposes just fine, and there was a great little desk for me to do work. The guys next door were a bit loud, thin walls- but it didn't really bother us- Pile of Vanity Fair's a great bonus.
The location is great - easy to get into town and to the beach. Very safe and clean suburb. Bungalow is clean and comfy. Rachael was flexible and accommodating when it came it check-in and check out times. I would recommend staying here.
Rachael's place was extremely nice to stay at. Clean, quiet, great location and street-parking in front of the house with no complications. We can recommend it with pleasure.
The bungalow in Santa Monica was perfect for our stay! It was very cozy but we had more than enough space to spread out. The bath was lovely :)
