About this listing

Interaction with Guests
As a host, I prefer to give guests space and privacy. There is minimal interaction but I am available should you have any questions or need help with anything.
Neighborhood is amazing. Right on the corner of Ocean and Broadway. Views of the Santa Monica pier. Walk to the beach, shops, promenade, bars. Everything is within walking distance!!
Very convenient access to public transit. Also - download uber if you haven't, probably the best mode to transport.
Other Things to Note
IT IS NOT A 5 STAR PLACE!!! But it is clean, daily maid service provided. Please don't expect luxury settings, it is meant to be for those who are price conscious.
In addition- the place has since been updated to include hardwood floors. There is now 2 queen sized beds instead of the bed and the couch in living room.
1. Have fun!
3. Be merry!
4. Enjoy your time in Santa Monica, everything is within walking distance. IF you need anything during your stay, please dont hesitate to call and ask.
Perfect location! Right in the middle of everything including shops, restaurants and the Santa Monica pier. Very basic accommodation, with a small kitchen, so it's great for people who want to get out about. Had a great stay here, would definitely come back.
Budget Accommodation Beach View review- the location was great, but the listing was not what is pictured. You could tell it had been some time since the photos were taken because the walls were a different color and the floors were not the same. I was unable to get the TV, fridge, or wifi to work. When I told Silvio the first night that things weren't working I heard back from him the second night and he offered to put us in another one of his rooms in the same building (Ocean view on budget fits 5). The second room was much nicer. The first room wasn't what I had expected, the beds did not look like the ones pictured, there was no couch even though one was pictured. There was a kitchen table instead with some chairs that were falling apart. The flooring in the kitchen area were coming undone and easy to trip on. The bathtub sliding door was off of the track and the water did not go down easily. The entire room smelt quite musty and left my clothes with a gross smell. The bathroom did not come with the abundance of towels like pictured. We were left 3 towels for our stay with no washcloths. Light bulbs had burned out in the bathroom. We were not left with toiletry products on the sink like pictured. Our parking key stopped working after the first day. The second location we were put in did not have these problems, but I would not recommend the first room to anyone because the room is not what is pictured.
Silvio's description for this place is perfect. Great locale, great unit, but budget. Worked out great for myself, my son and his two friends. Silvio was very good in his communication when I needed him. We'll be back!
Silvio provided the necessary information to enter the apartment and the parking place in advance and it was simple to get installed in the apartment. The apartment was in the state it was described as and the location optimal with access to Santa Monica beach, Venice beach and 3rd street promenade.
Apartment is located at an ideal place where food, shopping and beach are really near. But i will appreciate if the living room has more lights installed. A bit too dim. Toilet is clean but shower screen need to repair. Basically if you do not mind carrying big and heavy luggages up the flight of stairs to your room, then it's ok! No lift here.Wifi is strong, TV is working well and bed is clean. Finally, if you are always out exploring then this aprtment is worth renting for few days. Happy staying
