This is my very special place every winter while i work in LA. MaryAnn Jordan is always there when ever you need anything (usually with a grapefruit or fresh lemons from her beautiful garden.) I miss this enchanted hobbit hole the minute I leave. Fondly, Andi Carole


I loved staying in this apartment, it is very clean and quiet and the area is wonderful.

For 4 years Mary Ann Jordan's garden has been my winter home while working in Los Angeles. Each night i come home from work to the smell of jasmine, the gentle bubble of the fountain, the soft cooing of the doves, the casita is my spiritual refuge. Mary Ann Jordan has become a dear friend to all of us who stay here, we are so lucky to share her beautiful home and the gardens that she has lovingly created herself. With much affection, Andi Carole

Our second stay here was very comfortable, satisfying , and very conveniently located for our needs. Mary Ann is very attentive to the property and to the guests. We recommend this place very highly. Anie and Ed

My third winter stay at this beautiful haven in the sky. Every night to go to sleep with the doves cooing,to wake up to the hummingbirds greeting the morning over this beautiful garden. It is the most enchanting and beautifully maintained property in Santa Monica, I would stay permanently if I could.

The Garden Casita is really a pretty little retreat, just perfect after a busy day in LA. It's like a hotel suite with a cute kitchen, well equipped and with everything you need. The garden itself is adorable, with citrus trees, lounge chaise longues/sun bed, a little fountain and beautiful flowers everywhere. The place is calm and serene and the suite was clean and fresh. Mary Ann is an adorable property owner, who really provides perfect customer service and meets all your needs. I really recommend this little pearl. /Stephanie

Lovely, impeccable, and quiet, the apartment had everything that I needed. The gardens below are beautiful and add a nice touch. Location is perfect. I'd recommend to anyone and plan on coming again myself.


Studio is bright, well-apointed, with everything one needs for a pleasant stay. Everything is provided, from bed linens, bath linens, and kitchen supplies. The studio looks out onto a lush, colorful garden with lots of beautiful flowers, shrubs, and trees. A 2-3 min. walk from uscale Montana Ave., with its stylish shops and many cafes and restaurants in the heart of Santa Monica.

The place was perfect. It was clean and quiet, The property is right in the upscale Montana Ave. neighborhood so we felt very safe. Shops and restaurants are within blocks of your door. We had a very relaxing vacation.

This is our second time staying at Garden Casita. The apartment is small and cozy, making it feel very welcoming. Mary Ann is a delight. We will always stay here when we are in Santa Monica.


Very nice, well equipped and clean appartment. Feels like living there. The garden ist beautifull with many options to spend the day on various confortable chairs. We loved the small table and chairs on the balcony - ideal for breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening. Landlord and neighbors very nice. Walking distance to Montana Ave with shops, restaurants, cinema etc. WiFi worked ok, but could be a little stronger (good reception only when standing close to the window). Will definately come back (have been there the second time).

What a privilege it was for me to stay in this place. Mary Ann, the owner, takes such pride in her property. She cares deeply about her visitor's comfort. I was extremely comfortable! The bed was great, the bedding was soft, the furnishings were lovely and the garden grounds were amazing! The location allowed me to do things like yoga classes, dining and shopping without a car. I love to walk so walking to the beach was doable as well. I had a fantastic time and will definitely go back. Thank you MaryAnn!
