The Space

Spacious, cute and convenient apartment near the beach in Santa Monica!

Hello! I'm looking to sublet my spacious, bright 1 bedroom apartment. Mostly it's available for shorter stays, but sometimes for longer stays so please inquire. Price is negotiable for longer stays. Please note that price varies during high demand times of the year, starting at $140/night - please check the calendar for the nightly rate based on your desired dates.

Below is some basic info on the apartment, and attached are photos of all rooms:
• Large 1 bedroom apartment in a safe/quiet residential Santa Monica neighborhood, Ocean Park Blvd. / Lincoln Blvd.
• Very bright, modern feeling, spacious and airy, since it faces west, you get a nice ocean breeze.
• Only 10 blocks from the beach, about a 10-15 minute walk.

• FYI No phone.
• Plenty of street parking (will provide permits for your car).
• Laundromat is 1/2 block away
• Bedroom has very comfortable Queen bed.
• Dresser drawers can be available upon request for your use.
• Living room has a couch with a pull out bed, Queen size - but I also have a very comfortable large Queen size airbed if you prefer (it's actually more comfortable than the sofa bed)

The apartment is in an extremely convenient location whether you have a car or not:

A standard $60 cleaning fee will be added for stays of 3 days or more - and is included in the final price.

Please note that we mostly do short term stays - but if you're interested in long term stays, please just email me your request in case I can accommodate you.

**Reviews: I have only one cancellation noted in my reviews - please don't let this concern you, there was maintenance scheduled on my building that was going to disturb my guests. I found out 2 weeks prior to their arrival, notified them right away and I worked closely with Airbnb to find them comparable accommodations, so it all worked out!***

You would love this apartment and it's location! Thank you!

  • My friends and I loved the time we spent at Rocio's, and she was a great host!
    We knew in advance that we'd be getting in to Santa Monica pretty late (around 11 pm), but she was accommodating and was there to give us the tour when we got in. She was always in touch when we needed her or if we had questions about something, which was a lifesaver when we managed to lock ourselves out!

    There are plenty of interesting spots within walking distance, and the grocery is just a few steps away if you'd like to make use of the wonderful kitchen. Even though we chose to drive to some places (like Venice Beach), walking would've been fine if we didn't have a car. Parking wasn't a problem at all.

    And in case you have more than two people, my friend wanted me to specifically mention that the aerobed was really comfortable, even though she was skeptical about it when we booked, so don't let the idea of it hold you up.

  • Rocio was an excellent host who is very easy to communicate with and deal with. Thank you Rocio - we enjoyed our vacation and have a short family reunion. We liked the apartment, location and convenience we had. We would love to be her guests again!

  • Excellent experience. Rocio was very accommodating. My family came into town to visit and she was willing to meet up with me in advance of the reservation to give me the key so we didn't have to worry about a late arrival. The apartment is exactly how it looks in the photos. Very clean. Good location. In addition to the bed in the bedroom, there's a comfortable air mattress and a fold out couch. I'd definitely recommend Rocio and this apartment!

  • What a fantastic apartment! Great location, close to beach and lots of activities. Rocio, our host, is extremely friendly, organized, informative and respectful. We wish we were able to stay longer, and will be inquiring again for our next trip to Santa Monica.

  • Rocio welcomed us in her flat at a convenient time for us to give us the keys and her instructions i.e. right after we landed at the Los Angeles airport, which is only 25-minute away (at most!) by car.

    The flat is located in a lovely street. Within a walking distance, you can reach a pharmacy, laundromat, grocery, Whole Foods and the beach of course (20 minutes).

    The bed was very confortable. The kitchen was fully equiped and Rocio even left us some delicious cookies to welcome us. There was just a small problem with the bath tube (the sliding door was kind of broken and almost fell), but not big enough of a problem to impact our overall satisfaction with Rocio's flat. On top of that, she proved to be available and reliable, whenever we had questions to her (via private messages on

  • Rocio's place was just great. Everything was exactly like it was in the pictures. Very clean and well furnished with a very comfortable bed and full kitchen. The area is perfect as there are many restaurants nearby and a full market just across the street. I would stay here again without hesitation. Just a great place in one of the nicest areas of LA.

  • Rocio was an amazing host. She met my sister, who arrived before the rest of the party on a 24-hour-long flight, personally. She was always available for any questions, and gave amazing recommendations for shopping, restaurants, and parking. We only had two full days in LA and wanted to see certain things. Rocio gave us practical detailed tips on how to maximize our time to see everything we wanted and how to avoid traffic jams.

    This was my first airbnb and it exceeded my expectatations. Place was clean, comfortable and quiet. Rocio told us we could use anything in the fridge. She has a Vitamix blender and a juicer (Even though I did not get to chance to use either - I love using them at home). I would stay again!

    November 2013
  • Just returned from a brilliant holiday where we stayed at Rocio's appartment for 12 nights. Rocio's appartment is accurately described and I would highly recommend it to couples looking to stay in Santa Monica and/or travel around the area. It makes an ideal base to explore the coast down to San Diego or venture north towards Santa Barbara and beyond.

    As others have previously said - Rocio could not be more helpful, from initial emails prior to our booking all the way through to contact during our stay, her communication is first class.

    Can't wait to return some day soon :)

    October 2013
  • We had a fantastic stay, everything you could need is near by, parking outside the door was fantastic. The flat was clean with everything you could need stocked.

    September 2013
  • Wonderful stay at Rocio's. Great location, parking right outside the door and a very convenient supermarket over the road. A lovely walk down to the beach and central Santa Monica. The apartment had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked, the sofa was comfy, the shower was hot and it was clean and tidy! We would love to stay again if we return to LA.

I love where I live, it's a reflection of who I am - love to be active either running, riding bikes on the beach, hiking in Topanga Canyon or Malibu. Santa Monica has a very healthy lifestyle and am lucky to live in a neighborhood where I rarely have to use my car - so many things within walking or biking distance - definitely an environmentally friendly city. I'm a "glass half full" type of person and having grown up between Peru and the US, I was born with the traveling bug and have lived in several cities/areas including Lima, Northern California, Colorado, San Diego, Madrid, and of course, Los Angeles. I love traveling and the people you meet along the way. I'm bilingual and bicultural and truly grateful for that, as I've been able to do so much and meet so many great people since I speak both English and Spanish. I do speak a little French, but not enough and it's my dream to be fluent in French one day! My day job is I'm a Creative Director and am deep in the interactive/artistic/technical realm - I really love what I do and diving into anything that's creative and/or intellectual. I truly believe in "paying it forward", being respectful to people and kind and helpful whenever you can and not expecting anything in return. You always get rewarded eventually whether it's personally or by giving someone else the opportunity and the incentive to do the same. When I was a starving student traveling in Europe in my 20's with 4 of my girlfriends, an older couple that we met one evening at a restaurant that was so extremely nice, bought us all dinner and told us to enjoy, and to just do the same for someone else one day... I'll never forget that! And it's on the agenda, for my next big trip :-)
