I am a hands off host. I prefer to let the guest check-in and enjoy the property with little interaction, but I'm happy to offer an assistance when requested

The Neighborhood

Everything is just steps away from this downtown Santa Monica location.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Scott was a very attentive host and is available when needed. I enjoyed my staycation at the penthouse in downtown Santa Monica.
    The unit is 700 square feet of indoor space with walls of windows from floor to ceiling. Very comfortably and tastefully furnished, with a fantastic view of the West Los Angeles. The unit is on the top floor and the street is very quiet compared to the rest of Santa Monica, which is quite busy with traffic. Location is in the middle of everything. There is a furnished outdoor balcony of 80 square feet which also furnished and has a whimsical telescope. The kitchen is well equipped and the 1 bathroom is spacious. The unit was spotless. The 3D TV has a huge screen. The dedicated parking space in the building garage is rare and helpful to have in Santa Monica. Just remember to bring your car to street level before check out because you can't access the garage if you leave the elevator key fob in the unit after check-out.

    When I arrived, I dropped my bags and instantly felt at home. A perfect place to hang, cook, read, or even write. I'll come back for sure. Thank you Scott!

  • I highly recommend this place in the middle of Santa Monica. The apartment is luxurious just like it looks in the pictures, and it's kept very clean. I enjoyed my stay and plan to return here the next time I'm in LA!

  • We had such an amazing stay in Scotts perfectly located Santa Monica pad. Everything worked out great and Scott is a super nice guy. Would definitely stay here again when visiting Santa Monica.

    December 2013
  • Scott's place was amazingly cool. It was in a perfect spot of Santa Monica (close to everything), and was also peaceful throughout the day and night. The place has some incredible views, and everything inside feels brand new. The best thing though was how much natural sunlight the apartment gets. Farmer's Market is just a few blocks away, and the apartment is right across the street from some really good places to eat as well. The bedroom was nice with a comfortable bed and a small walk-in closet. Parking was also deep underground and very safe (the cars parked next to me included Mercedes, BMW, and Ferarri).

    To summarize, if I ever need to stay in Santa Monica again I know this will be one of the first places I come back to. Very much worth the price.

  • Great apartment, great location, just great! I did not meet Scott but it was super easy to get to the apartment.

    December 2013
  • Scott is easy to work with and he has a beautiful place with the perfect location in Santa Monica. My family enjoyed being in Scott's place for nearly a week and every aspect of his place was ideal. The open floor plan, big windows with lots of natural light, very nice kitchen and quiet neighborhood make his place the best possible choice for a stay in Santa Monica. The giant TV was a plus!

    December 2013
  • The place was exactly as described, really comfortable and clean. And really well located. All went very well. I would absolutely stay there again!

I'm 32, and year ago, I decided to hang up the security of corporate job and travel the world for a year... 18 months later I'm still traveling. To subsidize my adventures I've listed two Santa Monica apartment on Airbnb. Since quitting my job I've found my dream girl and married her and am expecting a little girl in August. Best year and half ever! I'm a 3rd generation native to Los Angeles and happy to help you see the great parts of LA that aren't in the Guidebooks. I look forward to connecting with you!
