About this listing

Private room (with attached, private bathroom) in spacious apartment, located in beautiful, quiet neighborhood! Looking for long-term renter, over 30 days minimum. Close to Santa Monica/Venice border, it's 5 blocks to Main Street, 6 blocks to the beach and under 2 miles to the Pier, 3rd St. Promenade and Abbot Kinney.

The space

Highlights include a peaceful, sheltered garden/patio in the back, piano and a comfy reading chair in living room, smart 24" tv in bedroom connected to high-speed fiber-optic internet. Very open and airy!

The building is older, so you won't find the newest fixtures, etc. The plus side is the size of the room, the private bathroom and location!

I have a cat, Leia, whose incredibly friendly and loves people. There's no litter box as she's indoor/outdoor and does her business elsewhere :) There is also a recent addition to the household, Hip Hop the bunny!

There's a Keurig coffee maker, and for long-term renters extra perks such as a spare bike and bike lock to use for ocassional/local use.

Guest access

Half a block away is a public tennis court (I have extra racquets and balls) and two parks within two blocks. The kitchen and all dishes/cooking gear is yours to share (walking distance to the Sunday Farmer's Market or natural foods market, both on Main Street), towels/linens and other basic amenities included.

Interaction with guests

I love my home and neighborhood, and am sure you will too! I'm at work during the weekdays, but if home weeknights or weekends I'm always more than happy to socialize, but of course have respect for each other's space. Only wanting good energy!

I had a great stay in Santa Monica. Ryan was a very welcoming host and even invited me to join him for dinner my first night in town. The room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, and the location was incredible.

Staying with Ryan was terrific in every possible way. The room was large and comfortable, the private bathroom was clean and even had a bidet. His pets were perfectly adorable. Everything was as described and as pictured & Ryan was a terrific host. I would stay here again and again and again.

Ryan was a great host and his place was perfect for me. He was very quick to communicate on meeting up and open to the level of interaction I wanted. It was a super quick trip so was in and out but I know from our brief conversation I would have enjoyed hanging out more. He knows the area really well. which is good because there is so much to do all around. His place is very clean and comfortable. The bed was amazingly comfortable. I was out a minute after my head hit the pillow. I would highly recommend this spot.

I have been at Ryan's house for two months and my experience with him has been simply wonderful, I could not have made a better choice. The house is really pretty and comfortable as well as the room which is very big and clean and it's also really close to the beach and all the main attractions in Santa Monica. But definitely the best part of this experience was meeting Ryan; is a very kind person and extremely helpful to the needs of the traveler; he has always tried to find everything I needed and made me feel at home. He introduced me to his friends, who are really great people, and made sure that I felt comfortable in a foreign city. He took me camping with him and his friends, he invited me to have dinner at his parents house and see beautiful concerts, in two months, we have formed a true friendship. I will really miss Ryan and Igor and all their beautiful friends and I will always carry them in my heart as a part of this wonderful experience.

Response from Ryan:
Barbara! I'm so sorry I missed the 14-day review period to leave one for you. We missed you from the moment you left and talk about our time with you often. For anyone reading this Barbara was simply to best roommate one could hope for - extremely kind, clean, considerate and we became fast friends. I would highly highly recommend to any future hosts. Hope you're doing well Barbara and lets stay in touch!

I had a amazing time staying at Ryan's place. It was so close to the beach and to my school. I loved the bedroom, it was clean and it almost felt like a hotel room. Ryan was great and made me feel at home, I would definitely stay there again.

Ryan was an EXCELLENT host. The room and bathroom were clean and he was nice enough to help my brother and I with some sight seeing by telling us all the great places to go. Though I personally was not around as much as I was constantly working or sight seeing, when our paths did cross he was always extremely pleasant to be around and asked if I needed anything. I would HIGHLY recommend him. Super nice guy, amazing host and knowledgeable of the area as well.

We were staying in LA for 3 nights and having never used airbnb before we decided to give it a go and stay in Santa Monica. We were really pleased that we did and we were very happy at Ryan's flat. The room was comfortable and clean with an attached bathroom. Although we didn't make use of it there is also a kitchen, living room and garden. The flat is just a short walk from everything you need in Santa Monica (including the beach) and the street itself is very nice and quiet. If we ever return to the area then we'd definitely stay again.
