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 and Venice canals.
This is my residence so I cannot offer my place for no more than one week per month.

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!
We were running late and arrived late evening at Kat’s bungalow and not only did she respond back quickly, she kindly and graciously waited for us to arrive to welcome us. It was a cold winter evening and she had the heater on so when we arrived the house was all nice and cozy, warm and welcoming.
It is a cool retro, cozy bungalow with a comfy bed and a well-stocked kitchen. Kat bought us a bag of specialty coffee and went out of her way to supply soy and almond milk (as unable to drink cows milk). But what really stood out as exceptional was that she supplied us with maps and recommendations of places to eat and shop locally. I frequented the most yummiest Vegan restaurant (Cafe Gratitude) and her favourite dinner place recommendation was also amazing. I am no stranger to LA – (used to live here for many years while at Uni) and Kat was spot on her recommendations of restaurants, shops, etc. Kat's place was in a great location, safe and a short walk the beach. We look forward to staying there again when back in the US.
Great sunny apartment, good location and comfortable bed! One of the few apartments in Santa Monica that does have air conditioner (in the bedroom and bathroom area) if needed. Host will help you and be available if you are in need of anything which is great to know.
My daughter and I had a wonderful time at Kat's charming bungalow. It was so clean and comfortable. She really made us feel right at home. The location is great and it is a quiet and safe neighborhood. We loved being able to walk to all the restaurants and grocery stores. Also, the flexibility of check out time was very helpful.We are hoping to go back again.
Like everyone else as it seems, we've had a wonderful time at Kat's place. Her place is very clean, nice and perfect for a couple to stay for a few days. We enjoyed a lot the accomodations around (restaurants, coffees, small boutiques, "Whole Foods Market") and Kat's welingness
Charming place and location in a quiet neighborhood. Very flexible check in and out was also a plus. Walking distance to Whole Foods was great. Wife and I would do it again for sure...thanks!
We had an incredibly wonderful stay here! Kat was super accommodating and flexible. Her house is very clean, comfortable, quiet, and cozy. The bed and pillows are so comfy! Plus, the neighborhood is really sweet, quiet, safe, and close to lots of nice cafes, restaurants, and the beach! You will not be disappointed by your stay here, I highly recommend it!
