About this listing
You can walk everywhere. A very short walk to the new metro station that opened so you don't need a car, something which is very rare in Los Angeles County. My place is a 10 minute walk to the beach, Pier, Third Street Promenade, all restaurants and bars, etc. Perfect location.
IMPORTANT NOTE to prospective renters: Profiles with a photo and descriptions are very helpful. One of the reason I like Airbnb.com is it's not as anonymous as other websites.
I travel a lot and am gone 99% of the time.
ABOUT THE PLACE:
It is important to realize this is an apartment community so it would NOT be a good fit for someone looking to do a lot of partying at late hours as the building is fairly quite. NO SMOKING. It's now against the law in Santa Monica to smoke inside or outside an apartment building. Thanks!
My place is a 10 minute walk to everywhere you want to go in Santa Monica (the beach is only 6 blocks away) which includes the beach, the restaurants and shops at the 3rd Street Promenade and recently renovated Santa Monica Place Mall as well as Main Street, etc. It has two big flat screen LCD T.V.'s in both the bedroom and living room and wireless internet!
If you know anything about L.A. you know it's not made for walking so it's a true luxury to be able to walk everywhere in Santa Monica and have everything you might need within such a short walking distance. There is a new Metro station in Santa Monica which will take you anywhere in Greater L.A. When you don't feel like walking, Santa Monica has a great and very popular local bus system (The Big Blue Bus is its name) to get you to other parts of town.
Private Bedroom. Couch is a comfortable sleeper sofa.
Other things to note
This is a very good deal. It will be professionally cleaned (meaning I won't do it myself like a lot of other places) so it will be very clean when you arrive. That is why the cleaning fee is at the price it is. It is a deep cleaning. In fact the fee is more than what I pass on to you but I absorb some of the cost.
Just need to respect the place and the neighbors (I.E. don't cause a disturbance). It is a fairly quite building so if you like to play loud music late at night or early in the morning this absolutely would NOT be the place for you. The place is suited more for someone coming for a relaxing vacation or a temporary work assignment.
NO smoking is permitted inside or even on the balcony outside (Santa Monica law) so if you're a smoker this clearly is NOT the place for you.

I enjoy meeting people from all over the world which is why I've traveled to so many places....have many left to go though. I have rented my own place out for many years so I know what I am doing. As a result I know how to be respectful of the places I rent from others as well.
