1) OTHER DETAILS TO NOTE:

 

* IMPORTANT LENGTH OF STAY NOTE:

As of March 1st, 2023, please be advised that the city of Santa Monica imposes a 17% Transient Occupancy Tax on any booking from a home sharing site (AirBnB & similar) of 30 days or less, as well as direct bookings of 30 days or less from any hosts direct booking site. Please consider booking for at least 31 days (even if you think you don't need that last day) or longer, to avoid that occupancy tax being imposed on your stay, and thus saving money overall.

One of his early projects, the guesthouse was designed by award-winning & major contemporary architect Lorcan O'Herlihy, of Lorcan O'Herlihy Architects. The works of O'Herlihy's architecture firm have won over 100 national & international design awards since its inception.

 

You can read more about the guesthouse, and the main house which the homeowners have owned since 1997, in an LA Times article titled, "Grandiose on a small scale", which was published back in 2006 after the completion of the guesthouse & partial remodel of the main home, as well. Feel free to search "Grandiose on a small scale LA Times" on your favorite search engine to find the article. It should be the first option that pops up!

 

*** PARKING:

Parking spaces are uncovered & accessed by way of the alley, which provides quick & private access to the guest house once parked, as entrance into the property is accessed via the back gate.

 

**** PETS:

Pets (Dogs and/or Cats) may be considered on a case by case basis, dependent on factors such as size, breed, age, and personality, to name a few. Pets may be subject to an additional pet fee and/or pet security deposit, as well.

 

***** INFANTS/NEWBORNS/YOUNG CHILDREN:

If you are traveling with a newborn, infant, or any young child, and may need use of a high chair and/or a travel crib/pack & play during your stay, you must request those items to be provided in the house at least a few days in advance of your check-in date. If this is ignored, it's possible these items won't be available during your stay due to short notice. Again, it is a guest/guests responsibility to ask for these things in advance if they will be needed. Thank you.

LOVE STAYING HERE

Awesome stay! I truly enjoyed the location, I took plenty of peaceful morning walks. The hosts are awesome and super chill people! I would recommend this place!

This little guest house is incredibly chic with its mid-century modern aesthetic. It’s situated directly behind the main house and is surrounded by a lovely garden and gorgeous orange tree. The owners are present which is a plus as they are charming and gracious. I was truly sad to leave this oasis.

The place was exceptional and exactly as described. The outdoor balcony, particularly when the weather is nice, is such a nice little treat to have in Santa Monica. The hosts were responsive, kind, and accommodating. I will definitely be staying there again!

The owners of the guest house are wonderful. Their cute dog brought us joy… The unit is unique and beautiful. The location is very convenient- walkable, safe, close to a grocery store and restaurants, close to two public buses stations (3;8) which we used to get to every place in Santa Monica… super recommended.

Overall an excellent experience. The hosts were incredibly kind and welcoming. Would recommend to anybody that is seeking a peaceful and beautiful home away from home that is only a 10 minute walk away from the beach.
