This is a 1 bdrm apt in a prime location of Santa Monica, CA located about 8 blocks from the main beach in Santa Monica. The place is cute and clean and very neat - a cute little hideaway for anyone coming to Santa Monica.
Santa Monica beach is a very hip and popular place to be in Los Angeles especially during the summer months. There is something to do for everyone here. Art galleries, music, yoga studios, shopping at Thirds Street Promenade, going to theaters nearby, taking a surfing lesson, or just relaxing on the beautiful beaches...You will fall in love.
The apartment is located very centrally - across the street from the famous St Monica's Catholic Church. The 3rd Street Promenade is 5 blocks away and the famous Montana Avenue is 3 blocks away, lined with cute little restaurants and shops. There is a Vons supermarket 2 blocks away, hospitals 7 blocks away, you literally could walk everywhere.
Personally, I am a film and television producer that travels a lot for my job. I can recommend good places to eat and some fun galleries to visit. Or simply exploring on your own is quite easy to do around here with a very open and welcoming culture.
DETAILS OF THE APARTMENT
The bedroom is very clean and has a new queen size bed, with a Sterns and Foster mattress. There is a cute little bathroom attached to the bedroom, for convenience and I will provide towels as well.
In the living room, there is direct TV (200 + channels), and a Wireless connection. There are 2 custom made couches that you could easily sleep on in case you dose of watching tele. There is a guitar for those who play and a dvd player if you want to watch movies.
The kitchen is has a coffee machine, blender, microwave available for you to use and Whole Foods is 3 blocks away on Wilshire Blvd and if you prefer gong to the coffee shop for your morning cuppa, Coffee bean is 1 block away. There is a Santa Monica Farmer's Market on Tuesday and Saturdays at the Promenade (5 blocks away), and also 3 4 movie theaters to see the latest films.
We have a washer/dryer behind the building in the alley and the key is attached to the apartment keys - you will need quarters to operate these, which you can get from the coffee bean or Vons.
TRANSPORT AND PARKING
If you are bringing your own car, there is street parking in on 3 sides of the block. Just be aware of street cleaning on alternating sides on Mondays,Tuesday and Thursdays.
Bus lines stop on Lincoln 1/2 a block from the apartment building) and the number for cab service is on the fridge. Coming from the airport, I find the fare is usually arnd $28-$35 depending on traffic and takes about 30 minutes. The blue shuttle is $12 with a few stops along the way. This neighborhood is easy to get around by bike and there are lots of bike rental shops nearby. Roller blades, skateboards and walking have also been popular choices for getting around if one does not have a rental or car.
There is a Lovely Park across the street with a 2 Tennis Courts, 2 Playgrounds, Basketball Court & Exercise Equipment. If you're into Yoga, I highly recommend Hot 8 and have some free guest passes.
All in all, it's just a sweet little piece of home that I hope others can enjoy as much as I do. I am only now renting out the place for the first time as I was using it too often until now. I hope I can help you have a wonderful vacation and and regardless of which place you decided on, that your stay in Santa Monica is memorable and relaxing.

This was my first air b&b experience, so I have nothing with which to compare it. Nice apartment, great location. What a treat to stay at this property. It's an easy walk to downtown, the beach, and to Montana. The building and neighborhood is quiet, and Anneli was responsive to my needs. A very pleasant stay at a reasonable price. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Anneli!
Anneli was a helpful, gracious host and this apartment is PERFECT for easy access to everything in Santa Monica, including the beach! I would recommend this place to anyone.
Anneli's apartment is centrally located and in walking distance to great shops, restaurants and the beach. It is the perfect place for a long weekend (or longer) and a much better option than a hotel. There's a great patio with views of the palm trees and very comfortable couches for relaxing. Anneli provides great instructions for the apartment and tips on traveling to and from the airport and exploring the neighborhood (and there are several Uber cars in the area). This was my first time using Airbnb and it was a great first experience.
Anneli was fantastic to work with. Very communicative and solicitous. We LOVED her apartment. The location is great in
Santa Monica - walk any direction to cafes, shops and entertainment. The apartment itself is spacious, super clean and
super comfortable. The bed is superb. She has also provided plenty of space to unpack, which is not that common. We definitely hope to return when we are back in Santa Monica.
Anneli was an amazing host. She was out of town but kept in touch to check on us and make sure we were comfortable and having a good time.
Her apartment is really nice, tidy, clean an comfortable. Plus, it's in a beautiful area and close to the beach, so we walked a lot around the neighborhood even though we had a car.
If you're visiting Santa Monica, I'd definitely suggest you stay at Anneli's apartment.
She even sent us an email with a lot of information on places to see, visit and where to eat :)
This was our first time using Airbnb and we have not been disappointed .
We booked Anneli's place as it was near to our son's place just around the corner and boy we were pleased we did.....it was our little home for our stay and we wanted for nothing.
We emailed Anneli a couple of times and she responded very promptly, nothing was too much trouble.
We will be booking again for our next trip
We stayed at Anneli's place mid December 2013. it was in a great location and a short walk to everything. we had some difficulties with keys and getting into the apartment however Annelli came straight over and helped us out. She was very easy to contact and such a lovely person. the apartment was clean and spacey. We loved staying here and Santa Monica is beautiful.
Staying at Anneli's pad in Santa Monica was so easy and straight forward. We were over from Australia on our honeymoon and really enjoyed the experience of 'living' in Santa Monica. The place is clean and tidy and close to everything. The famous Santa Monica beach and shops are a short walk away. Anneli was always contactable and always helpful. It's was awesome and highly recommend it!
Anneli's place is stylish, super-clean and bedecked with thoughtful, complimentary refreshments that really do make you feel welcome and taken care of. Fantastically located for the best of Santa Monica, whether for touristing or (like me) just for schlepping about in the San Vicente/Montana Ave/Palisades corridor that you'll find mere blocks away. Anneli herself is, it must be said, totally awesome. My email inquiries (including that classic, "Yikes... I just noticed I'm supposed to be checking out in just a few hours... that's a booking mistake...") were answered with Siri-like alacrity, despite all the exciting things she had going on at the time. Thank you so much, Anneli!
Great place, i love it
