My wife and I stayed in one of the upstairs apartments for a few nights in January. Cara and her husband were great and provided a lot of information to us ahead of our stay to make everything easy. From meeting us after hours upon arrival, to sharing some of the best places to eat, to simply having a place...

About the neighborhood
This location is more in the middle of a block and at the back of the property. It is within easy walking distance to everything down town Santa Monica, a walker's paradise, in fact it's blocks from Santa Monica Place and Third Street Promenade. The garden is like a small park where hummingbirds and butterflies are the most frequent inhabitants. It's really a sanctuary, created to be a place of peace, gratitude and joy. Single family homes are on each side of the property. It's often called Secret Garden Santa Monica. Parking is safe and convenient and on the property. Easy to unload. Please read directions carefully so as not to disturb neighbors with a knock on the wrong door. ; ) the City of Santa Monica at just 8.3 square miles in size, Santa Monica is a walker&... more
