This neighborhood is one of the safest in SoCal. I have live in the are for over 13 years and it has been a routinely quiet and calm throughout. Women and children jogging around the Brentwood golf course nightly. Some of the best shopping and dining is just blocks away on Montana Ave.
BUS: There is bus stop across the street for the BIG BLUE LINE that can take you to neighboring communities of Venice and Westwood (UCLA Campus)
CAB: Taxi from LAX airport will cost you around $45.00 not including tip. If you have an uber car account (website hidden) that is the way to go.
PARKING: There is plenty of on the street parking in the neighborhood read the parking signs carefully to avoid getting a summons.
Other Things to Note
The apartment building is older but well maintained. As it always is with apartment living, there are shared walls and floors so please respect the neighbors by keeping the noise to a respectable living level. The unit is on the second floor so things like running a vacuum cleaner after 9PM could be disturbing to the occupants below. During the winter months nights can be a little chilly. Please use thermostat conservatively (80 degrees max. during the evening hours)
I request SHOES OFF when walking through out the apartment to keep the light colored carpet clean as possible.
NO - SMOKING (of any kind)
NO - PETS
NO - LOUD NOISE AFTER 10PM
NO - EATING IN THE BEDROOM
NO - OVERNIGHT (Airbnb registered guest only please)
**Please respect the appliances and furnishings and adhere to KEEP OUT and KEEP OFF signs where ever posted**
Excellent stay. Mario was able to accomodate me at the last minute. The place was great and his attention to detail is impeccable (placard with my name on it in the room!)
Checking in: seamless. Easy entry in and out.
Wifi: strong and easy to get to.
Noise level: very quiet.
Own bathroom: huge, private, great water pressure, hot water, etc.
Linens/towels: plenty with lots of extras.
Highly recommend Mario and would gladly stay here again.
Great stay at Mario's place! The apartment is very peaceful so I had good nights and quite close to Santa Monica Pier & Venice beach too. Friendly and helpful host. Thanks!
Mario is a great host and I think his apt seems to be a well kept secret so far. But I am pretty sure this will change as the apt is so well located in a great neighborhood and quite close to the beach and not too far to the hills neither. It is great to have an own bathroom next to your room and everything was clean and exactly as pictured. Mario was very helpful throughout my stay and I even could use his beach cruiser bike. And last but not least: Mario is quite a funny guy (see him on YouTube) and a joy to talk to. So I definitely can recommend to have a stay at Marios apt to explore Santa Monica and the area close to it
Great clean, comfortable, quiet place with personality. Mario is a great host and all around nice guy. I would definitely stay here again.
Great host and lovely apartment. Highly recommended.
