Nancy was incredibly welcoming and communicative. She was a great host and checked on us more than once during our trip. Her neighbor welcomed us and gave us great recommendations for places in the neighborhood. Overall, an ideal experience from a host/communication standpoint. Also, the cats were very sweet and sociable - we are cat lovers, so we enjoyed Bella and Jack quite a bit.
However - and it pains me to write this, because Nancy was fantastic - the house had a lot of clutter. It was more cluttered than is evident in the pictures. Also, one of the chairs in the living room had a broken leg.
During our stay, there were people staying in the adjacent property who we heard talking - it is a private room (as listed), not an entire private home. Thankfully, they were not too noisy.
Overall, it was not quite what we expected. For people who want a sparkling clean place (or who are allergic to cats), I would not recommend it. This listing is probably best for younger guests or college students. It is a good price for the location, and it's very convenient. We loved being able to walk down to the Santa Monica pier and to the Sunday morning farmer's market in Ocean Park.
Finally, I just want to reiterate, Nancy is great - kind and friendly. She's worth a whole star of our review! I would love to have her as a host again, but would probably not return to this cottage.
Our second stay! Perfect location, cozy, and comfortable. Nancy was a wonderful host. We will definitely be back!
The house is really cozy, a bit old-fashioned, but it just made it supercool. The location is the best! Right next to Main Street and only a 10-min walk to third street and the beach, Nancy was very welcoming and helpful during the stay. The backyard has a lot of potential (its huge) but unfortunately totally overgrown, There were two very comfortable sun beds though!
We had a pleasant stay in Nancy's apartment, a short walk from the beach. I passed an idyllic hour in the garden watching hummingbirds with a cat on my lap.
Very cozy and private studio. Close to everything in Santa Monica. If you aren't familiar with Santa Monica, this is a great central location.
It's part of a larger house so you can hear and be heard by whoever is staying in the other part. Keep that in mind for occasions where you want complete seclusion.
After 3 years as a host I finally decided to try the guest experience. And I'm sure glad I did. Nancy's place was sweet and welcoming. I felt at home and comfortable right away. I loved the personal touches - art work, curvy furniture and mirrors (sorry don't know my furniture styles) a bottle opener that was a hand with a heart in it. And a beautiful goddess book with amazing illustrations. And Nancy was a very attentive hostess. And of course, the location. A short walk to the beach which is breathtaking - a quiet neighborhood but with lovely shops. I was very happy with my stay. Only one slight hitch - sound travels in the house and there were some noisy moments from other parts of the house. But I am hyper noise sensitive and this shouldn't be a problem for most guests. Highly recommended and I hope to return
Nancy was a great host, from meeting us to let us in to reviewing all to do in the area. The house location is in a perfect spot. It's easily walkable to the beach, restaurants and even Santa Monica main downtown, though prefer the area the house ins in as a quiter scene than the main downtown. I'd stay here again and recommend this cute back room behind the main house, with its own little deck to relax. Good value for the area.
Nancy was a lovely host - she was there to great us when we arrived and made sure we understood everything about the studio. It has a private entrance and was perfectly situated for a singe or couple looking for a fantastic location close to the beach.
Supertrevlig och väl organiserat boende. Grymt bra läge.
Nancy's apartment was in the perfect location for our visit. Getting situated within the apartment couldn't have been easier.
Nancy was a great guest, highly recommended!
