Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer 🙂

First off, hats off to the Owners!! I can’t say enough about them! Deborah was the perfect host. She was there to make sure we were Happy! She made us feel that this was our home, & if we needed anything we knew we could call her for assistance.

The home itself was beyond gorgeous, we just didn’t want to leave! The pictures don’t really do it justice. It was clean and so beautifully appointed. It was also stocked with so many amenities that I just didn’t expect… it’s beautifully and stylishly decorated with a comfortable sofa, cozy cushions and rugs, and thoughtful decorative touches everywhere you look. It is clear that a lot of care and love has gone into the creation of this space, and you feel that it’s important to the owners for the experience to be both special and at the same time for you to feel like you are at home. They certainly succeeded in that regard!

The home itself is situated in a beautiful, quiet, neighborhood , near the beach area and the Promenade with so many shops and restaurants close by. We walked quite a bit, day and evening, and it felt very safe. We will definitely be back It really was an absolute delight to stay at this lovely townhouse, we just can’t wait to return again! I could never imagine staying anywhere more perfect in Santa Monica.

Above & Beyond

The Loft was more than advertised. It is a great location within walking distance to the beach. We were working remotely, and the Loft provided several comfortable places for virtual work, including calls and great internet access. We were able to work outdoors on the deck. All needs were thoughtfully provided for by the host and include garage parking. The host, Deborah, is exceptional. Deborah is easy to communicate with and was very flexible as our flight was canceled, and we needed to stay an extra night. Cannot say enough good things about the accommodations and the generosity and graciousness of the host. It made our stay in Santa Monica perfect.

Xmas Holiday Happiness 2020

A comfortable, conveniently located Zen-inspired dwelling provided a relaxing atmosphere to spend the Christmas Holidays. Despite this COVID-19 season, we were able to enjoy a gourmet family dinner prepared by our son (@Chefedbeard) in the well-appointed kitchen. The spacious upstairs loft bedroom with access to the private balcony was a welcome retreat. Private garage parking was an added plus. Great neighborhood and close to many amenities. We would definitely return to The Loft House in the future. Submitted by Cheryl D.; Stayed: December 2020; Source: Vrbo

Tons of Light & Modern

I really like this host. That was what stood out most about this property. Any glitches with Airbnb were thoughtfully taken care of. I also felt cared for staying at her property as she met a couple of needs I had inquired about. She is very responsive as well and timely. The place is clean, free of clutter, has tons of light, and a modern kitchen, which was a nice plus. I found it to be a zen space to read and write, and I did not even turn on the TV! The location is great, central to everything, and the garage is exclusive to this unit along with a laundry machine, which was a big plus. The beds were comfortable. Good mattress! This property would be great for a couple with kids or a couple on vacation. It has a cute little patio for having coffee, and tons of recessed lighting. It is very comfortable and pretty. Would love to stay again. Submitted by Vasanthi; Stayed: December 2020; Source: Airbnb

Perfect Beach Vacation

Deborah’s loft was a great location for a beach vacation! Situated within minutes of the beach and the Santa Monica promenade. It had a comfy bed and living room to relax in at night. Submitted by Natalie; Stayed: October 2020; Source: Airbnb

Loved It!

Spent a few days at the loft and loved it! The location was perfect for our beach and boating activities, and the loft was very clean and well decorated. Deborah was very friendly and communicative. She was also very accommodating, as my wife forgot something at the house, and I had to go back after we had checked out. We definitely recommend the Santa Monica Loft House.

Fabulous, Well Stocked Rental with a Convenient Location!

This VRBO is awesome. The check-in process was super easy, and Deborah responded immediately when I was confused about which gate to enter. The entrance is private and feels very safe. The place was immaculate when we walked in. It looks exactly like the photos show. The kitchen has every utensil, pot, pan, etc., that you need. There is a basket where you can put your keys, lovely thick fluffy bath towels, comfy beds with soft sheets and bedding, and access to Netflix and other channels for when you need downtime. The garage was a huge bonus as well. The condo is one block from Chick-fil-A, a 7-minute walk to the grocery, and resides in a quiet neighborhood with little traffic. You can’t go wrong staying here; I highly recommend the Loft House! Submitted by Berkeley G; Stayed: August 2020; Source: Vrbo

Truly Chic and Immaculately Clean

The Loft was truly chic. Everything from the pots and pans, towels, and beds looked and felt luxurious. The beds, in particular, were very comfortable. Everything was immaculately clean. I had to find a place on very short notice, and Deborah was very responsive, getting my family and me in less than 2 hours from me reaching out to her. I only wish I could have stayed longer to take advantage of all the beach supplies that were available. Submitted by Richard; Stayed: August 2020; Source: Airbnb

Loved Our Stay

Loved our stay at the Loft! Super to have a garage available for our car. Great location in a quiet neighborhood just a short walk from Main Street in Santa Monica and, of course, the beach too. Especially enjoyed the upstairs patio for tea in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. Submitted by Elaine; Stayed: September 2020; Source: Airbnb

A Pleasure to Stay At

Deborah’s loft villa was a pleasure to stay at. The unit was clean and well-maintained – very stylishly built and well-suited for two couples. She had a double garage, which was nice for those interested in renting a car. The location was walkable to the beach, and a quick drive or bike ride to the boardwalks of Venice and Santa Monica. The host was communicative and helpful throughout our stay. Thanks again! Submitted by Omar; Stayed: March 2019; Source: Airbnb

Chic, Cozy, and Convenient

This was a perfectly located Santa Monica gem. We were able to get around the area with ease and were so comfortable in the Loft House. Deborah had everything we could need in the apartment and even provided umbrellas for our rainy weekend. Thank you so much, Deborah, we wish we could have stayed longer.

Fantastic Place To Rent - Loved It!!

My wife and I spent three weeks here in January 2019. We were extremely pleased with the home. It’s every bit as attractive as the pictures would lead you to believe. In particular, we liked the private large garage, the laundry facilities, the decent kitchen, ample living space, and bedrooms. The home is a stand-alone, so it is quiet at night. The location is also great. It’s in a nice neighborhood near downtown Santa Monica with a long walk or a short drive to the ocean. Deborah & Drew are great landlords. We had a problem with our door, and they had a locksmith out the next morning to fix it. It’s very easy to strongly recommend this listing to anyone.

Exceeded Our Expectations

The apartment is wonderful. Not only is it fully “equipped,” but the thoughtful and meaningful touches, like plants, throw rug, pillows etc are all tastefully done. While we have a high bar, it exceeded our expectations.

Perfect Spot for Us

My husband and I had everything we needed at this lovely apartment. The bed and bedding were especially soft and comfortable, which is not always the case in hotels or rental places. The kitchen had everything necessary for breakfast and snacks (and more if you are cooking), and the living room area is open, bright, and has plenty of space. It is also very nice to have a garage in LA as street parking can be complicated for visitors. The location is great and Deborah was responsive and helpful. So much better than a hotel! Highly recommend.

Fantastic Spacious home!

We spent 8 days here after a busy week in San Francisco. It was perfect. Very relaxing. It is a beautiful building with lots of love gone into it. We met Deborah on the first day, who is a very nice lady who gave us lots of information from supermarkets to concerts on the pier. We didn’t have any reason to contact her for the rest of the week but we knew she was only a phone call away. We walked most evenings down to Main Street, Santa Monica Pier or 3rd St Promanade. All have so much to offer, really spoilt for choice. Then drove to the beach during the day with the excellent chairs and towels provided by Deborah. The washing machine was a god send with 2 teenage boys. We would definitly recommend this lovely home and would stay again if we ever go back to Santa Monica. Thanks Chris & Jo UK

Wonderful time!

My stay with my 18-year-old son was fantastic! The owner, Deborah, met us at the Loft within 5 minutes of us calling her to run through the house and was so pleasant and offered many tips. She was very easy to communicate with prior to the trip. The first thing we did was sit on the lovely balcony and enjoyed the California sun! The house was very comfortable and the neighborhood quiet. We didn’t use the kitchen much except for coffee in the morning so the coffee maker and coffee in the pantry were welcome! The beds were very comfortable and the light that comes in the house was so nice. Each window was able to open and let in the beautiful air or pull a shade down. The living room was comfortable and cozy. The garage was ideal to pull in and close the door behind you and have your own privacy right up to the front door! The location was very ideal; close to LA, the 3rd St. Promenade, Malibu, Venice, etc. We wish we could have stayed longer and did not want to leave! Thank you for a lovely stay!

Beautiful Loft close to everything in Santa Monica

My wife and I and my adult daughter had a wonderful stay at the Loft House in Santa Monica in mid-December 2016. The Loft House is both beautiful and comfortable. It is close to the beach, restaurants and shopping in Santa Monica and Venice. We had a wonderful relaxing visit. Thanks for letting us enjoy the Loft House!

Meeting our expectations

Our stay at the Lofthouse was really up to our expectations, which were quite high given the many positive reviews we had read. The house is very comfortable and really very well equipped. The neighbourhood is very nice, conveniently located and all services are within easy reach. The owner is really supportive and makes all necessary and even supplemental information available on arrival. The house is very airy and full of light and the terrace on the upper floor is really enjoyable. Those who have rather sleeping in the full dark may consider bringing eyemasks.
