 There’s nothing like a vacation getaway, but sometimes it’s just as fun to be a tourist in your own town…I’m talking about a solid STAYcation. We decided to do just that in Santa Monica at the Fairmont Miramar right next to the ocean. Although the Fairmont has a traditional hotel style building, they also offer 32 awesome poolside bungalows (the only accommodations of this type in Santa Monica, if you want to get the real beach cottage experience). We were  drawn to the property because we love our bungalow (see previous post), and each one is accessed through a private entrance, nestled among the beautiful winding gardens. Like ours, these rooms were originally built in the 1930’s, and have since been meticulously restored, with Southern Californian inspired interior design by Michael Berman. They also offer personalized products from Le Labo upon arrival. The property’s restaurant FIG uses fresh ingredients sourced from local farmers, and is a perfect place for either a girls lunch, or romantic dinner for two. There is also a full service spa, as well as the Bungalow bar which is frequented by all the area residents…we would know. This place has everything, the only reason you’ll want to leave the grounds is for the beach. To read more about our room, and to book a stay click here.
