Review by Ashley D.
Great location for the beach. Checking in was a little odd. They misunderstood our AM for PM, misunderstood the # of guests we had even though it was on the contract, and told us Check in time was 4pm but the cleaning people were still there. None of this was a huge deal it was just... odd. The one room with the bunk beds: mattresses were wildly uncomfortable so keep that in mind if you have back problems. But overall the place is great. It served our purposes since we mainly came to explore and not really to stay in the house.

4 families - ages 1 to 58 - stayed in this beautiful house for a week. The house is well appointed and very clean. The location is perfect for walking to the beach or to nearby restaurants and shops. We enjoyed cooking in the well stocked kitchen and eating on the two rooftop decks. Olga and Phyllis were attentive and easy to work with. I highly recommend this property.

Definitely Recommend

Wonderfully eclectic home within walking distance to beach and restaurants. So nice to have bikes and boogie boards for our group! Plenty of space and well maintained.

Our adult family of five recently stayed at the Santa Monica Contemporary, September 2018. The location was excellent... home was clean and welcoming... property was just as described. Would absolutely recommend a rental for this property, or any property, from Stay LA. Phyllis and Olga were very organized and accommodating. Thank you!

Unusual property in a great location.

We loved this property, it's slightly quirky with a pinball machine and glass mezzanine floor but has a great location and just feels homely.Also a mention to the managing agent and in particular Olga who was excellent !

Great location!

We were 2 families travelling together and it was the perfect house for us. Check in was easy-Olga met us and showed us around and how everything worked-all good. The beds were comfy and the house had everything we needed. We all enjoyed the pinball and pool table and the bikes were a bonus for us to use. We all loved the roof top deck-a great spot to hang out and relax! Restaurants close by-we did not have a car we walked or used Uber.We would totally recommend this house and would rent it again.

Awesome Rental

Review by Timothy R.
The vacation rental was fantastic.Our stay was short (2 nights), but the time was great. Olga, the owner was extremely accommodating to our needs. We are less satisfied with STAYLA as we were told initially we would receive back $1000 security deposit within 1-2 days after leaving and we are still trying to get word on receiving it back over a week later with no luck. Frustrating.

Great location! Great space!

Family of 7. Tons of room and GREAT LOCATION. We loved having our dinners on the rooftop patio!! Loved all the space and the pool table. We had multiple pool tournaments. So great to have a garage to park in that made us feel secure. Loved the boogie boards and being able to walk to the beach and the pier. We will miss that house forever!

Fantastic Santa Monica

Review by Mike K.
Santa Monica Contemporary fulfilled every expectation we had before arriving in LA for our all too brief stay. With our two adult sons joining us from London, the three bedroom house had ample room for us all to find a corner to relax in private or an area for us all to sit around and share stories and catch up on time missed together. Arrival was easy as we were greeted and settled in quickly with no fuss.The decor is bright and eclectic and gave a sense of fun - just the thing being so close to the beach, which is right at the end of the street. It wasn't long before we were seated on the roof top deck enjoying the sun and taking in the sunset as it lowered over the palms and into the sea before us.The house is very clean and well maintained, the rooms all large and well appointed as are the bathrooms. The kitchen has all that was needed to cater for ourselves but we also took the opportunity to visit the restaurants which were close by. We loved the bikes that were available in the garage and enjoyed a ride along the beach to Venice.This was the perfect holiday only spoiled by the deadline of our departure. We will have to return to continue the fun. We certainly recommend Santa Monica Contemporary.

A fantastic beach home!

This house was perfect for my family of 4! It was large, clean and modern with lots of light and the beds were comfortable. We loved all the toys in the garage...the beach cursors were awesome (a 26 mile bike/running path outside the door) and we also enjoyed the boogie and skid boards, the basketball (there are fantastic public tennis and basketball courts down the street), and the beach chairs. The house is located on the best part of the beach...about 5 houses down is the ocean where you can rent surf boards with instructors, a restaurant, volleyball courts. About a 10 min walk/jog north to the Santa Monica pier and 3ed street or south to Venice and Abbot Kinney Blvd and across the street is a great coffee joint. Walking distance to fantastic restaurants. 20 min drive to Hollywood, Beverly Hills or Malibu..but really no need to leave as you are in the best spot and will want to stay. My husband brought his road bike and rode up the mountains everyday. It was very hard to leave and we hope to return soon!

Our vacation here was absolutely amazing, our host was bright and bubbly and made sure we were settled in when we arrived.The location is unbeatable and the home is so welcoming we didn't want to leave.I can't recommend this enough,if you have the chance to stay here go for it.Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer!

Perfect location, huge house!

Review by Angie M.
Four of us stayed here for a girls' trip and absolutely loved it. The home is so spacious with plenty of seating and room to spread out. The layout is unique and fun. It has two rooftop patios which were perfect for enjoying wine at sunset. The beds are memory foam and super comfortable. Phyllis was a joy to work with!

This was a wonderful vacation home - and the location can't be beat. Our children enjoyed having a pool table and the roof decks were great for evening wine. Was a wonderful choice for us.

The house is just a block away from the beach. Close to main street where there are shops and restaurants. Very spacious house and clean. Kitchen is fully equipped. Bikes to ride on the paths along the water. No real issues.

Just spent Christmas to New Years with my wife, two adult sons and one finance'. Excellent property, well equipped, large and clean. Great location, one block to beach, one block to vibrant Main St. Met all expectations. Check in with Olga was easy. Garage for the car did away with the hassle of parking. Highly recommended.

Great house!

Stayed here for almost a week with a couple of co-workers. The house served as a home/work base, and could not have been better. Great location, lots of spots around the house to either congregate or go off on your own and work/read/be alone. There are even two roof decks to relax on.The internet connection was great, as were the facilities (kitchen, bathroom - they even have a gas grill). The management company was also very responsive to all our needs. If I ever need to come back with a couple of people again, this will be my first choice.

Fantastic house!

We rented this house while in LA for a week. I had to bring my family while on a business trip to LA and this house was perfect. Close to the beach, right off Main Street with many great cafes and restaurants, this location cannot be beat. Some very minor maintenance issues, but the managers were very responsive and professional. I have rented many houses over the years and would say that this is one of the best.

Best vaca ever

This house was amazing. We are a family of 7 and there was plenty of space for everyone. The location was exactly what I wanted. It's one block from the beach and about a 15 minute walk to the pier and the promenade. The house was equipped with everything. We will definitely be back.

This was our 2nd year in a row renting the Hollister beach house and our 2nd time around was even better than our first time renting. The accommodations were perfect for our family! The owners were extremely responsive as well and easy to find.

Review by Thomas G.
This is a lovely location. On block from the beach and one block from shops and restaurants. We did a lot of walking. The property had bikes for our use as well and we had a great time cruising along the beach. We did not feel compelled to go into LA for fun. There was plenty right there. It was also very easy to get to Malibu and the Airport. Olga was very helpful and answered all of our questions. We were there a week and did not manage to get to all the places we wanted to visit. There was too much to do. We liked Shaka Shack burgers and Kahuna Tiki for adventurous low key eating.

Review by Richard A N.
I would recommend this house to anybody looking for a place close to both the beach and terrific restaurants. The staff were great whenever I communicated with them. The customer service provided by the manager and the owner was phenomenal as well. I had a great stay as the property matched well with the description. The property was well-maintained and every room was in great shape. I look forward to working with this team again for future trips to the area.
