Lovely stay
Posted on: 11/4/2015

I had a fantastic four weeks here. The property is well maintained and spotlessly clean. The outdoor area is lovely and half way through my trip the cushions for the outdoor furniture were replaced which made a difference. Santa Monica airport is very close so be ready for planes coming overhead pretty low. The use of eco products while admirable meant that the sheets didn't always smell very fresh and I had to have them changed a couple of extra times. Also the location is a good 30 mins walk from the main areas of Santa Monica or Venice. Luckily there are beach cruisers to get you there faster. Its a very safe and secure place which was important to me as a single woman. The only downside of the beautiful glass doors everywhere is that at night the only window you can have open is the one above the front door so things get a bit stuffy. I had a strange conversation the week I was due to check out where they tried to suggest they wouldn't clean the place even though it had been a week since it had been done but that was resolved in the end. I'd recommend this for people who want somewhere a bit away from the action with lovely outdoor space.

Loved Cactus Flower
Posted on: 11/4/2015

We loved everything about this property: the location, the tucked-away private setting, the gorgeous gardens, and the light-filled modern and comfortable interiors. We can't wait to return for another stay. Everything was impeccably designed and the owners were super friendly and very responsive. It was a pleasure to stay here.

 We had a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful stay. The house was superb in every way and the owner was available and responsive within minutes to the two minor needs we inquired about. We would return without hesitation and would highly recommend it to others.
