Secret Garden Santa Monica is a stunning property just blocks from the center of downtown Santa Monica and fit guests will love walking everywhere. A lovely and appreciated sanctuary garden with a courtyard fountain, meandering paths and over 500 floral plants throughout. Garden views from inside eating and work/desk area. Beautifully appointed and charming 1 bedroom with King bed, 1 bath; sharing only the kitchen wall with another unit, otherwise freestanding. And feel free to ask me any questions that may make your decision easier!

Stunning garden property with rural charm situated just blocks from downtown Santa Monica, central to markets, restaurants, theaters, yoga studios, and just a ten minute walk to downtown and then just blocks from the beach! Considered a Walker's Paradise location by third party raters.
