“An Oasis in a Busy City”
[5 of 5 stars] Reviewed July 25, 2013 for a stay in March 2013
My daughter and I enjoyed a stay on Cara & Eric's property in Santa Monica and loved the garden, truly an oasis in a busy city. The apartment itself was great and reminded me of a stay at a boutique hotel. The linens were wonderful and everything anyone would need was right there for us. We loved how hospitable and helpful Cara was and know you too will love your stay there! The location was great! Close to everything! Including Burke-Williams Spa ; )...

“A Sacred Garden in Santa Monica”
[5 of 5 stars] Reviewed August 1, 2013 for a stay in September 2012
Our stay there was perfect! It was recommended through mutual friends and we were so happy that we found it. It is perfectly close to everything without being on a main street or being directly downtown. Very quiet considering it is just 5 to 9 blocks from downtown Santa Monica. Loved the Broad Stage; just blocks from there and recommend their small venue cultural events. There was a lot of love put into. It seemed like we were somewhere in Tuscany! A definite must for a return trip!

While I was there staying I met a neighbor walking by the property who loved popping in to see what she called this "Secret Garden".  Well, that is a perfect way to describe this Tuscan or European type garden. It's really a special place and it's a gift that Cara & Eric have designed the garden to be so beautiful and peaceful. I love Santa Monica and when I come from Austin, I feel it is my home away from home. The condo is really quite nice, surprisingly so, again, matching an old world, but updated, charm; artisan inspired. Nice bath sheets; nice feather pillows, oh well, you understand what I mean. Not hard to write this review, it's really perfect and well priced, and it is a close to the action, without being in the action, location.
