Awesome Triple Threat -- Location, Space & Host
We absolutely loved our stay at this amazingly warm home away. First and foremost is the ideal location – short walk to Ocean Avenue overlooking the Santa Monica Beach and an even shorter walk to Montana Street for great restaurants and shopping. It was easy to get anywhere we wanted – from the Santa Monica Pier…to Malibu…to Venice…to all over LA. We liked that we were close to everything – but nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood. It was our first time using HomeAway so we were concerned that the space would not match the photos – so we were exceedingly pleased that the home is comparable to the luxury hotels we have stayed in the past. The kitchenette was just right for our vacation stay – and the bedroom is spacious and comfortable. We were concerned about going outside to go the upstairs bedroom – yet in the end it seemed organic and even added to the charm (even thought it was rainy and unseasonably colder the week we stayed). Finally, we want to thank our host – Lynne and her family. They could not have been more gracious. They were quick to respond to any of our needs including loaning us umbrellas for the unexpected rain and introducing us to great restaurants – and Leo made us feel right at home. Can’t wait to return!
