We stayed in Gwen's apartment in Santa Monica in April 2014 and it was great. Lovely compact space with everything you need - perfect for a solo traveller or a couple. Great location, a short walk to the beach, fantastic choice of restaurants nearby and close to lots of great shops. Gwen's recommendations were very helpful and she was a friendly and communicative host. We had to hunt for a parking spot in the evenings but it didn't take us long. Overall, I would thoroughly recommend.
We loved the place. It had every amenity. The bathroom was a good size, very clean with beautiful towels. The bed also was very comfortable. We are so glad we stayed here rather than a hotel. What we loved was the location as everything was within walking distance. Gwen was very helpful if we had a query and we will definitely stay again.
Gwen's studio is in a perfect location. It's only one block from Montana Ave. My daughter and I thought it was the perfect location to walk and exercise as well as shop and eat! We had two meals at Kreation Kafe which is just a few blocks away and highly recommend it for breakfast lunch or dinner. The juices, salads, chicken kabobs and breakfast creations are incredibly delicous. The studio apartment is immaculate and the roomy double sinks and bathroom make the studio seem larger than it is. We liked the little complex that the studio is in. It's a quick drive to West Los Angeles where we hiked at Runyan but also so convenient to shopping and walking along the ocean. Gwen's a wonderful hostess and will give you tips to fit your own travels!
Gwen's Santa Monica studio: very very clean and fresh, quiet, everything works, nicely appointed; pleasant, comfortable, and no surprises. Walking distance to Montana avenue, promenade shopping, and the beach. Did not meet Gwen in person but she was very responsive to email and zero hassle with keys. Much much better than a hotel AND you get the neighborhood "feel" rather than something commercial. Good for quiet adults. Had enough time before checkout to run on the beach and shower. Would definitely stay here again.
This was the first time we have used Airbnb and will certainly be using it again as an alternative to hotels. Gwen was an excellent communicator right from the beginning. Her apartment was exactly what we required for our 2 day stay. Close to the centre of Santa Monica in a quiet neighborhood street. Everything was in easy walking distance. Gwen also left an excellent folder of suggestions of places to eat - the three we tried were all outstanding. Thank you Gwen again for your flexibility on departure. This was very helpful as we had a late plane that night. We both highly recommend both this apartment and Gwen as a Host. Thank you again

Gwen's studio was clean, in great condition and well stocked. The location is great - easy walking access to lots of cool stuff. Gwen was wonderful and very responsive to all of our needs.
One note: the street noise can be a bit loud so if you're sensitive to that sort of thing make sure the windows are closed before you go to sleep.
All in all we had a great time and would gladly stay again!
I had such a great time staying at this studio. Its location is perfect -- there is so much within walking distance. The studio gets such great natural light that I think I barely used the other lights during the day. The water pressure in the shower is great. Wifi is steady & dependable. The kitchenette is so cute. The grounds of the building are very well kept. It's also clear Gwen really cares about her guests' experience and she was so lovely to deal with. She's even taken the time to put together a binder of nearby places in Santa Monica, which would be super handy for anyone new to the area. Parking at night can occasionally be somewhat challenging but it can usually be found within the surrounding blocks, no problem. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! I was sad to leave this gem of a place and I recommend it highly to anyone! Thanks again, Gwen!
This studio apartment is an absolute gem! The location is perfect - only blocks to the beach, blocks to MontanaAve and 3rd Street promenade. It's a great size for two with a gorgeous bathroom and cute kitchenette. Gwen has appointed the apartment very well-TV and wi fi is efficient. The studio has a Santa Monica charm. I actually wanted to extend my stay but it was already booked up! Thank you Gwen!
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Gwen's studio. It is clean and comfortable, with easy access to the 3rd street promenade(about 10-15 minute walk) and quick drive to the I-10 and PCH. Gwen provided us a parking permit so we can park our car on the street. It could be a little challenging to find parking at night, but I was able to find a spot within 5-10 minutes on the nearby streets.
Great hostess!! Great location ! Great studio!! Gwen was wonderful!! She has a binder with great tips, which was very useful to us since it was our first time in Santa Monica. I have been working in the hospitality business for many years and my impression is that her studio was very clean and immaculate !! I definitely would recommend her studio. If I return to Santa Monica I would not think twice about staying in her place .
Thank you, Gwen !
