About This Listing
*For same day/night instant bookings please please e-mail me first.
Relax and take a holiday in sunny southern California where anything is possible. Leave your cares behind you and enjoy the sun all day.
I have a studio apartment on the 10th floor with a full bathroom which is available for short term stays. There is a full kitchen available with a refrigerator, stove and bar area. The studio has a large closet on one side and surrounded with large windows on two sides which give you a wonderful view of the city. There is a smart t.v. with cable with Netflix and Amazon streaming capability without having to hook your laptop to it. The place is fully furnished and I provide you with linens and towels. The bed is a queen size bed, medium to firm and a twin mattress underneath for extra sleeping space.
The apartment is a couple of feet away from the Metro bus and Santa Monica Blue bus stops (please do a search online for specific routes). You can take the Metro 28 (stops at every stop), or the Metro 720 (rapid bus and makes limited stops) or the number 2 Big Blue bus. The fares range from $1.25 (Big Blue Bus) to $1.50 (Metro). About 7 blocks away from the unit is a Bank of America and post office. The library is 8 blocks away. There are also many restaurants withing walking distance (Japanese, Indian, sushi, pizza, hamburgers and more) all on the trendy Wilshire area with boutiques, bars, and coffee shops.
Go hiking in the Santa Monica/Brentwood mountains, surfing in the ocean, visit the Santa Monica Pier and 3rd Street Promenade. Malibu, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Venice, The Getty Museum, LACMA, Chinese Theater, Hollywood Bowl, Walt Disney Concert Hall and Griffith Observatory. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
My location is very user friendly, a car is not necessary for most places, you can walk, bike or take the bus most everywhere. However, please do your research about specific tourist areas you want to visit to get an accurate idea of how far away a place is from the unit and don't forget to check the map section of the listing or do a search by map on here. Remember, search engines are your friends :). Santa Monica Beach is about 10-15 minutes away by bus. Hollywood is about 20 minutes away without traffic. 13 miles/24 kilometers from downtown Los Angeles and 11 miles/17.7 kilometers to LAX (Los Angeles Airport. If you are driving, the 405 and 10 freeway are right next door :) If you do drive, you can use the spot that comes with the unit. FITS ONLY COMPACT CARS.

Interaction with Guests
I really appreciate guests letting me know what their expectations are in terms of level of interaction. I have a regular job as well as 4 listings and I always make an effort to be as available as I can. However, I am not a mind reader and cannot guess which guests are more self sufficient and which are not. Please don't be afraid to speak up and let me know your needs.
Other Things to Note
UNFORTUNATELY I DO NOT HOST CHILDREN OR PETS AT THIS TIME.
No shoes inside please, the carpet is brand new just put in June 27th and a very light beige color.
If you are out all day please do not leave the lights or the t.v. on as that's a waste of electricity and the bill will go up significantly.
No loud noise after 10 p.m.
Guests are responsible for cleaning after themselves, i.e. dishes and pans used in the kitchen, and for long term stays (bedding, comforter and towels I provide).
No guests overnight or otherwise please. This applies to guests who were no included in your booking reservation.
Lastly, please do not go through my things. This is my home and expect guests to be as respectful as I am which means not going through my personal items.
We really enjoyed our stay in Caroline's clean and bright studio. The location was perfect for our itinerary, which included trips to Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach, Malibu, Hollywood WoF and the Grove. The beds were comfy, and we loved all of the windows. Caroline left an assortment of water, beer, and soda in the refrigerator which was appreciated. Gated parking felt very safe. Great value for the price!
Amazing view, within walking distance to some great restaurants and cafes. Bad Sushi is a must try (despite the name..lol) the gym and pool are well maintained and there is a communal coffee machine next to the gym (serves Starbucks coffee). Parking space will fit most standard size sedan cars, no monster trucks (sorry guys). Caroline is lovely and very accommodating and lives close by so any problems just let her know.
Wow what an amazing stay in Santa Monica! Caroline was amazing and very helpful indeed. It was great value for money, the flat was immaculate and in a great location. I would definitely stay again. thanks so much Caroline xx
Big thanks to Caroline for her hospitality this past weekend. The studio was just like the pictures and very clean. It was perfect for my wife and I with a great view of the city. It's a great area within walking distance to Brentwood and Westwood and just a short drive to Santa Monica, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and only 20 minutes to LAX. There were plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes, etc. within a 10 minute walk. We didn't get to use the pool or gym, but they were both very nice.
Caroline made the check-in and check-out process very easy, and she even left a welcome basket with beer, wine, bottled water, snacks, toothbrushes, bar soap, and plenty of guides and references for LA. We will certainly look to book with Caroline when we return to LA, and we've already referred our friends who are staying with her in a couple of weeks. Thanks again!
I loved this apartment - bright and cheerful with an amazing view. Caroline was a great host, greeting us upon our arrival, and parking and entry was a breeze. This is a great location on L.A.'s west side. While we didn't get a chance to take advantage of the pool and gym facilities this time, we will definitely book again for our next stay.
We loved our stay at Caroline's apt we came back for our last 2 nights in LA before returning to Australia! Travelling back from New York we arrived from the airport earlier than the official check in time and were happy to wait but Caroline was available and was able to come and let us in which was greatly appreciated. After a full 4 weeks of travelling we spent our last 2 days relaxing and enjoying the familiar neighbourhood, there are so many cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and even massage places within walking distance. The on site pool and gym are also an added bonus in a beautiful quiet complex. Thanks again Caroline for being so welcoming and accomodating, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in LA now.
