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.
INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:
LINENS AND TOWELS
COFFEE *SELF SERVED
LAUNDRY ON SITE
*PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT A PARTY BUILDING. IF YOU GET DRUNK AND BRING THE PARTY BACK HOME MY NEIGHBORS WILL COMPLAIN AND REPORT THIS TO MANAGEMENT. YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE IF THIS HAPPENS AND YOU WILL NOT BE REFUNDED.
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 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.
We had a great one week stay in Caroline's appartment. The appartment looked exactly as it appears in the photos and the description. It is very comfortable and offers everything that is needed for a short stay. Caroline also gave us some advice on where to do the grocery shopping and to eat in the neighborhood. We would definitely recommend this appartment!
P.S. Thank you very much Caroline for the wine, chocolates and other essentials which you provided us with for free.
Beautiful place. Exactly what was needed. I did not have any issues with the noise.
We had a great three night stay here. Caroline's home is very clean and the heated pool was a real treat. The location is an easy taxi ride away from the beach. It was also nice having a view out over LA.
My friend and I stayed here for two nights and were so impressed by Caroline's cleanliness, responsiveness and kindness that we decided to book another of her accommodations on airbnb upon our return from a one night stay in Laguna. We loved the apartment, coming from NYC this was a huge studio and perfect for my friend and I. The kitchen was stocked with some essentials which was very nice. Caroline also provided us with some great information about where to eat in the neighborhood and other tourist tips. She answered all of my questions and was extremely responsive. The apartment looked as it appears in photos and in the description. The building also has a pool and laundry which was wonderful. We loved the location as we spent some time in Santa Monica and Venice. Great stay overall!
We loved our stay at Caroline's immaculate apartment so much we are going to stay again :) It is exactly as described and communication with the host was always prompt and pleasant. Lots of little extras made us feel welcomed and right at home.
Adorable space with a great view. Convenient location for the west side. Caroline is a great host, very responsive & attentive to our needs. The welcome basket & cold beverages were great. Highly recommended.

I'm a 27 year old female who loves to travel as often as possible :)
I am quiet and I keep to myself most of the time but I am here to help my guests with anything they may need :)
I love to read books on most any subject but particularly science fiction, archaeology, historical fiction and non-fiction as well as current events.
