I so enjoyed having this group. They were very friendly and outgoing. They kept the apartment clean and I didn't have to do too much when they left. I look forward to having them again.

Everything is a described. It's charming and very clean. The beds are very comfy, linens are clean and crisp and p… More

"Neat little place right near the beach!"
This shack is everything I love about beach shack chic - made up of odds and ends from elsewhere that all combine to give a homely rustic feel seconds from the sand.

We rented the cottage over New Years with plans to attend the Rose Parade. I got sick so we didn't make the parade. But snuggling on the sofa with a quilt and good tv gave us the perfect viewing area.… More

"Don't Rent This House"
This is an old house and it shows.Lights hang off the wall. Shades fall off the window. there are four bedrooms, but only two have any where to hang closets or drawers to use. There is only one the… More
Reader: This guest was rude, dishonest and extremely coarse. Its important to view our other reviews and note the polar opposite opinions. This guest's problems started when I got reports of loud and late partying. So much so the police were called. We are not a party house as stated in the ad description.
We are located in a wonderful eclectic neighborhood akin to NY's West Village or San Francisco's Haight Ashbury. The guest brought three large dogs after claiming to only have "two small dogs". The guests left dog droppings all over the front and back yards and the house a complete mess.
We don't pay our hard-working cleaning crew to pick up after other people's dogs.
To address his claims: Yes this is an old house. A fully restored turn-of-the-century wonderful, old home officially registered with the City of Santa Monica's Historic register.
Yes, some of our lights hang off the wall because they are mounted on a fixture.
The shades were left ripped out of there mounts because they were yanked out. We found them discarded on the floor.
Both master bedrooms have closets, the other rooms have ample room dressers.
Yes, there is "only one' thermostat in order to maintain a single constant temperature throughout. This technology may have been too sophisticated for them.
In the review they wrote "the hear din't really get upstairs". I think they meant The heat didn't get upstairs. This is the first time we've had this complaint.
Our bedding is thoroughly sanitized (feature on our GE oversize front loading washer and dryer)
I'm not sure what he meant by our shower being difficult. Maybe it talked back to him?
We are not a hotel and aren't expected to supply shower soap, shampoo or conditioner. We tried it in the past but found people prefer to bring their own products relative to their own needs and likes.
We supply fresh clean linens, 2 cabinets full of towels and one cabinet of beach towels.
Rest assured there is plenty of Costco brand toilet paper.
Guest are provided with 2 sets of keys that work very well. Never had a complaint.
Yes, parking is difficult. Aside from the TWO preferential guest parking passes, there is a guest spot behind the house. Its a desirable area of Santa Monica (like NY and SF locations listed above) but there is a decent overturn of parking spots. We rarely have a problem,
Our "location location" is great. He got that one correct.
We have a guest book full of 12 years of wonderful, great guest comments with several return visits. Our home may not be right for everyone and I'm sorry these people had a bed experience. The feeling is mutual.
I encourage enquirers to ask any questions to clear up any concerns you may have prior to renting.
We love this house and take a lot of pride in it as we take pride in making sure our guests have a wonderful stay.
"Nice comfortable home, close to Venice and Santa Monica"
