Laura and Bobby's place is in a great location for the beach, restaurants, and easy access to both Santa Monica and Venice. We had a lot of fun exploring over the short amount of time that we were in town. The free parking space was also very convenient. Thanks for having us!
This place is the real deal, I cannot speak highly enough. Perfect location, homely, comfortable, clean, relaxed, fantastic hosts. We had a relaxing and enjoyable time in Santa Monica. We did not have the pleasure of meeting Laura, although Bobby was warm and welcoming. Bobby, thankyou for sharing your space with us you have a beautiful home.
We did not meet Laura but Bobby took good care of us from our arrival to our departure. We enjoyed very much Santa Barbara. Bobby's apartment was about 4 blocks to the beach and 2 blocks to the Main Street where we found a lot of shops and cafes etc. On Sunday the Venice beach was filled withe venders, bikers, pedestrians. You can easily spend half a day there and do not feel bored. We use Bobby's kitchen for breakfasts and enjoy lunches and dinners all over the LA area. Our trip was too short. Next time we have to come back and spend more time in Southern California. We will stay with Bobby again.
Laura and Bobby were very welcoming. The neighborhood is terrific and the cruiser bikes were a sensational addition to our stay!
Bobby and Laura's place is fantastic! Great location, just a short walk to the beach in the beautiful Santa Monica. The room is spacious and private, and they are very warm and easy going. Loved the fact that you can park your car in the garage and use their bikes. We'll be back ;)
Bobby and Laura's place was perfect. Laura was away but Bobby greeted us at the door (such a lovely guy) and showed us around the place. It was exactly how we'd imagined and my family really enjoyed staying there. Bobby was staying there at the same time but you really never would have known it, it was like having the place to ourselves.
The location is great for restaurants, shops, bars and most importantly the beach!
Without a doubt we would book in again to stay in their lovely home.
We had a great time staying with Laura and Bobby. Immediately we were welcomed into their home as if it were our own and we instantly warmed to the place.
Restaurant recommendation were spot on and the bikes were great fun to use.
Our only regret is being so exhausted at the end of each day, to not spend more time chatting to Laura and Bobby.
- Thanks for a great stay in Santa Monica!
Bobby and Laura's place is fantastic--you can't beat the location, and their home has a wonderful and peaceful energy. This was my first experience with Airbnb, and it greatly exceeded my expectations. The condo is spacious and the master bedroom is private. Bobby and Laura were perfect hosts and made my stay relaxing and comfortable. I really appreciate their generosity!
Had an awesome time at Laura's and Bobby's beach hideaway. Location can't be beat, just a few blocks from the beach and Main Street attractions. Cycled around Venice on one of their beach cruisers. Abbot Kinney just a 5 minute ride away. The room itself is very peaceful and serene with a large comfy bed and an en suite bath room. What really makes the experience though is the host. Didn't get to meet Laura, she was traveling, but Bobby was just the most warm and welcoming host you could hope for. Even ended up going out with him and his friends for drinks. Great stay...highly recommended!
Laura and Bobby are exceptional people and hosts! I am very happy to have met them. The unit is in a great location walking distance to good restaurants and is beautiful inside. One night we grilled dinner on the outdoor grill and it was a beautiful experience! Thank you very much.
