Hi! Awesome ocean view apartment available for rent. Awesome location, located on the corner of Ocean and Broadway Ave. Studio Apartment with a kitchenette and flat screen plasma.
From this location, your are situated 1 block north of the Santa Monica Pier and 2 blocks west of the 3rd Street Promenade. Walk to the beach, shops, dining, and nightlife. 500 sq/feet apartment with ample closet space.
To mention - there is a couple caveats- since it has an awesome location, it is super noisy. It is noisy on the weekends from the music played in the bar below, Makai. Furthermore, there is some traffic and pedestrian traffic. May not be suitable if you want to sleep before 1am on weekends.
Studio has a queen size bed and a sofa. Rental has free wifi, cable tv, kitchenette is stock with supplies for cooking. Location is central to whole foods and grocery stores, stop by and stock up before your arrival!
Stayed for two nights and I thought "super noisy" would be tolerable but it was almost unbearable, even earplugs don't work! Then there's also the vibration everywhere from the loud music as if we were at the club! We didn't mind it so much because we would turn in at 1 am and just had to wait another hour until 2 am for the music to stop. Pedestrian and traffic noise in the morning was ok and the view when waking up is just amazing! The studio has very old stained carpet and the bathroom door doesn't close completely and the shower doors squeaks very loud when you try to close it and the shower head pressure is super strong but these are all really non-deal breakers. Check in process was a bit confusing as Silvio would sometimes reply quickly but sometimes would not reply. Email seemed to be the best method to communicate and I had to message him to find out how to get the keys to the place and eventually got a reply on the day of our arrival. Wifi on the house guide didn't work so had to message Silvio about that and he did reply quickly at that time. Would probably stay again if it weren't for the loud music until 2 am.
Classic California-style cozy studio apartment right in the heart of everything in Santa Monica. Both windows have a view of the beach and Pier. Felt safe and secure.
Over all the stay was enjoyable. The bed was comfortable, water was clean, and the tv works. The view was nice and relaxing--just what i wanted from my stay. Good price too.
Silvio was great. The place was exactly as pictured and described. It was clean and stocked with everything you'd expect. Obviously, the location is beyond perfect. Also, Silvio could not have possibly made the arrival and departure process any more convenient and was always immediately responsive when contacted with any questions.
Our stay was great. The location of the unit is amazing (right on ocean) and walking distance to everything.
As advertised the club below (Makai) definitely plays loud music until 1:30 - 2am on Friday and Saturday.
Though Silvio had to change the room on the day of the reservation, he was highly communicative and put me in a bigger room at the same rate. The bed very comfortable. The location was perfect, and the price good. Thanks, Silvio. Other reviewers said some stuff about noise levels... that's true, in that it's above the bar, but it's tolerable. I was also so tired by the time I got into the room, that I barely noticed.
The most important positive note for Silvio was his level of communication. He responded to all my texts and helped me with stuff very consistently.
Silvio was great, Noise wasn't as big an issue for us as we were not around much at night on the weekend. Location was great!
