The Space

If you want to stay in a great neighborhood and prefer to travel more like a local, staying at my place will be the perfect alternative to a hotel/motel....PRIME LOCATION! FREE off street parking available. Fairly quiet neighborhood without the noisy Lincoln Blvd traffic that you would get with the other nearby motels and a lot less cheaper than the hotels along the beach.

Very clean, quaint and comfortable fully furnished 1br 1bath bungalow built in the 1950's single story apartment in the Ocean Park area of Santa Monica right near Venice. Perfect for one or two people.

****Please note: I do not have a land line phone nor cable tv.
****Allergy Alert*****I have down pillows and comforter.

Safe neighborhood for walking about. Just a 7-8blk walk to the beach. A fabulous wine bar and restaurants one block away. Walking distance to Whole Foods, Main st, Abbot Kinney and Venice beach. Coffee shops, restaurants and shops all just blocks away. Close to the famous Santa Monica pier, 3rd street promenade, Venice pier, boardwalk and Venice canals.

****Please contact me first before you book a reservation!! I only accept bookings from potential guests who have completed their profile which must include a picture. After you book, I ask that a simple rental agreement be signed and sent back to me before your visit.

  • Great apartment in a quiet part of Ocean Park. Clean and cozy, and Kat was super easy to communicate with (always responded within minutes). Would definitely stay here again.

  • Lovely neighbourhood and clean, characterful apartment on the border between Venice Beach and Santa Monica. Kat was really helpful and friendly. Venice Beach Wines around the corner was great too!

  • Kat's 1 bedroom bungalow in Venice/Santa Monica was absolutely perfect for my husband and I on our last trip to Cali!! She was super accommodating and her place was exactly how it looked and was described in the listing. Her place had everything you could possibly need- from coffee to private parking to her very cool stereo system. The location is absolutely perfect as well... walking distance to everything you could possibly need on Rose and Main. I would recommend Kat's place to everyone!! And we will certainly be contacting her again next time we are in town. Thanks again for everything, Kat!

  • Great place to stay and centrally located. Kat was very conscientious and responded quickly to inquiries. My husband and I were very comfortable. Unless absolutely necessary, we walked to most places around town. We definitely would go back!

  • My husband and I visited Santa Monica in January and had such a wonderful time - we can't wait to get back.
    Our flight was delayed but we were able to coordinate changes to our check-in easily as Kat was very understanding and easy to contact.
    She left out maps of the area including landmarks and restaurants - Kat even wrote personal notes about the restaurants which was very helpful. We tried out the wine bar on Rose Ave (only 1 block away) and Gjelinas on Abbot Kinney and we enjoyed both very much.
    Only a short walk to the beautiful beach and the neighborhood is very sweet.
    Kat's place is great; very eclectic and warm and welcoming. The apartment is clean and the bed is also super comfy. I highly recommend her apartment.
    Would stay here again for sure!

  • I had a wonderful stay at Kat's place. It is perfectly located on the Santa Monica side of the border with Venice LA. It is situated in a great neighbourhood just a short walk away from the beach and many great shopping and eating spots. Her apartment is very clean and cozy. I loved the style of it and felt very much at home there.

    Kat went out of her way to make me feel comfortable and welcome. She provided maps with directions to popular places near by and responded quickly to any and all questions and requests for recommendations.

    An especially nice touch - before I arrived she asked for my favourite kind of coffee and how I took it. There was a bag of locally roasted medium roast and a carton of organic milk waiting for me upon my arrival!

    Without hesitation, I fully endorse Kat's place!
