Great place in Santa Monica
My husband and I and our two teenage children stayed here for several days as a vacation getaway. We wanted to be close to the beach and yet still be somewhat centrally located to do a little sightseeing. We were about 7 blocks from the beach and almost every day we rode the bikes provided. It was wonderful riding up and down the beach (the swings, rings and ropes near the Santa Monica Pier were a hit with my kids). The guest suite was clean and Maria thoughtfully provided so many more things than what we anticipated. The architectural design of the guest suite was really neat. The temperature during the day was mid to high 60s, so there was no need for an air conditioner. Also, particularly with teens, WiFi is essential and this place has it. Parking our car was not an issue. Maria gave us some terrific restaurant suggestions as well as some local attractions we should see. The location of this rental is great - near the beach, near the grocery stores, etc. And you almost can't help but be near a Starbucks or two wherever you are in SoCal. The biggest drawback was the traffic since we don't have much where we live. We traveled at all different times of the day and evening, and there seemed to be traffic no matter the time (it did vary in volume a bit) nor the direction we were traveling. I don't think that a different location would have been any different. We would definitely stay at this guest suite again and would recommend it to family and friends.
Beautiful Beach Guest Suite: 6 blocks to beach, 3 blocks to restaurants and bars
