This earthy, eclectic spot is your beachside home away from home. The available room fits 2 with kitchen, bathroom & laundry access. Easily accessible to the 10 freeway. Walking distance to 3rd St Promenade, the Santa Monica Pier, Main Street & more!

The Space

This isn't one of those cold, modern, minimalist condos by the beach (if that's your thing, you'll wanna check out another pad). It gets tons of light and there are eclectic details that make this space cozy and unique, a true beachside home away from home. There's also access to outdoor social spaces so you won't feel confined even on those days you choose not to venture out and about.

Guest Access

You will have full access to one private bedroom with 2-drawer storage as well as a ceiling fan, tons of light and fresh air from two windows above the queen-sized bed. There is a shared bathroom with shower that separates you from the other bedroom (which will be occupied by either me or my roommate depending on the timeframe). You will also have access to a coin-operated laundry and dryer which is shared with the rest of the building. There are only four total units and my neighbors are super friendly. There are modern, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen as well as a dishwasher (there is dish detergent under the kitchen sink) and microwave. Along with fridge space you will have some cupboard space as well. The living and dining areas are also shared and my roommate and I are super chill so don't be afraid to socialize :)

Interaction with Guests

Either myself or my roommate will be staying in the other bedroom during your stay and you can always reach me by phone with any questions or concerns.

The Neighborhood

Everything is so walkable here! And if you don't feel like walking, rent a bike for the day. Santa Monica and Venice are super bike-friendly and the beach bike path is less than a 5 minute ride from my front door! You can go all the way down to Manhattan Beach or further! You can walk to all the great restaurants and bars, art galleries and parks on Main Street in 10 minutes and the Santa Monica Pier and Third Street Promenade are only a 15-20 minute walk away (everything's even closer by bike)! There's tons of bus stops for the Big Blue Bus which can get you just about anywhere and the scenic views are to die for. Though my building is right off Lincoln Blvd., my street is super quiet and you won't even know you're right off a main thoroughfare.

Getting around

There's a bus stop at the corner of Lincoln and Bay and you can rent bikes for the day or by the hour at a stand just south of the Pier on Ocean Front Walk. Everything is so walkable or bike-able you won't even need a car!

  • Great location (super easy to jump back on the 10 into LA), lovely people, a dream to deal with. Great that Ally was flexible on check in time. Didn't get to spend enough time to take advantage of how relaxed Santa Monica can be but will be back to do it again...

  • Second stay was just as good as the first. This is now my go-to place for the west coast. And Ally showed me some excellent vegan restaurants which I didn't even know was possible before this.

    September 2013
  • (email hidden)! Ally made me feel welcome and was attentive to my needs. The apartment is clean and bright. The room is comfortable and quiet. The kitchen has everything you need to cook. You can walk ten minutes and be on the beach or downtown on main street where there are tons of great restaurants and boutiques. If you (email hidden) to work the library is a 15 minute walk away. There are also supermarkets within walking distance.

    After one night here I booked a second week.

About
Every moment has 300,000 possibilities. Nothing is permanent. I'm a self-proclaimed vegan foodie. I love being outdoors and many of my favorite activities reflect that - hiking/backpacking, biking, camping, rock climbing/bouldering, reading outdoors, running by the beach, yoga, watching and making movies, horseback riding, etc. etc. etc. I love meeting new people and would love to make more connections with people from all over the world so that I have more excuses to see more new places and ways of life. I'm pretty laid back, helpful and social both as a guest and host. The questions I ask are always genuine. I am fascinated by people and want to know who you are and how you work :)
