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.
The apartment is smoke free apartment, which also includes burning incense or anything similar that would go against the city ordinance.
Anneli's spot was great for our needs: clean, big and close to the water. Her house manual was clear (where to find the keys, extra towels, etc.) and I so appreciated her responsiveness. Thanks!
Anneli's place in Santa Monica was beautiful! Very clean with beautiful decor and a warm feel. Anneli was also an amazing host. We were so lucky to have found such a great spot in walkable distance to many fun restaurants and bars and the beach. Will definitely stay at Anneli's place the next time we are in LA!
We had a lovely stay at Anneli's apartment in Santa Monica. It was really close to the beach and once we explored a bit more, we realised just how much great stuff there was within walking distance. Anneli's online handbook for the apartment was really useful, with some great ideas for places to go and things to do.
We were only in LA for a few days but this is a good place to be to enjoy some nice weather and a cool vibe, especially on 3rd Street Promenade!
We loved this apartment, it was perfect for us, very confortable in a nice neightborhood. I didn't know the owner but we were in contact all the time. I really recommend this apartment, I'll be there next time.
Anneli was prompt with all communications which made our travel plans seamless. The listing descriptions were spot on and realistic with the photos, so there were no unexpected surprises. The neighborhood was quiet, charming, and within walking distance to just about everything we wanted or needed.
