**PLEASE READ the full description below by clicking "more" before inquiring or booking.**
We are the front unit on the second floor of a two-story building, with no one underneath us. Your space is a full bedroom with two single beds, a desk, and shelf and closet space. (Thanks, airbnb, for the verified photos!)
Guests have their own private bedroom, and we share the bathroom and kitchen.
Free neighborhood parking is available on the street with one of our guest permits.
High speed wifi is included.
There is a coin-operated laundry room on site.
Interaction with Guests
I work from home, so am around if you need me, tapping away on the computer. My boyfriend Jon lives here, too. We are in our 50s.
We'd love to get acquainted if you like -- airbnbers are awesome people! We have lots of great restaurants and sights to recommend in the Santa Monica area.
We are walking distance from the Third Street Promenade, Montana Avenue, Santa Monica Place mall, Santa Monica Pier, Palisades Park, a twice-weekly farmer's market, theaters, comedy clubs, a host of terrific restaurants in all price ranges, and more. Check out the "maps" page for all the great spots in the area.
Although centrally located, the apartment is on a calm and quiet street that is not a main thoroughfare. Sunlight streams in from huge windows, and there is a nice balcony to take in the sky.
The best parts of Santa Monica shopping/eating/sight-seeing/beach are within walking distance. Hiking and other outdoors activities are a short drive away, up toward Malibu or in the Marina del Rey area. There are many convenient bus lines within one or two blocks.

J ai passé quelques nuits chez Laura a Santa Monica. L appartement est très bien situé à 15min de la plage et du centre marchand. Les hôtes sont très agréables très gentils. Ils m ont aidé à trouver les bons restaurants du quartier et ont très souriants et accueillants!
Really can recommend Laura's Place. Her warm welcome felt like at home. The room is big enough and feels comforable. The location is a short walk form downtown Promenade or even the beach. There's a lot of buses nearby for comfortable travelling. The Airport Bus is not far located. Had a really nice stay there. Thanks so much.
Laura's listing was just same as the pictures! It was really nice to stay there. Santamonica beach was in the walking distance and could get anything i wanted near her listing. Laura is very helpful and welcomed me and my friend warmly. and her house is really cute, especially the Kitchen :) thank you for letting us stay in the room.
I had a fantastic time staying with Laura and Jon. The room was extremely quiet at night, even with the windows open, and the entire apartment was very comfortable. My hosts were extremely welcoming and warm, and full of advice on restaurants and things to do in the area. The location is also fantastic, and is an very easy and comfortable walk to many eateries and businesses. I would definitely recommend this listing!
la descripcion del anuncio era tal cual. el cuarto es lindisimo y muy comodo. el resto de la casa tambien.

I feel that Laura is very kind and friendly,the whole environment makes me feel comfortable.Laura helped me to find some informationuseful for my (website hidden) one word ,I will go next time
Our stay was really great with Laura. The apartment was so sunny and bright, and the beds were probably the comfiest things ever! They were very accommodating, with our own set of keys, parking pass, and space in the shower and fridge! They even had a whole binder full of their favorite restaurants and helpful tips for staying in Santa Monica. Thanks for everything!!
I'm a writer/filmmaker and a freelance editor for folks who are self-publishing. I live here in gorgeous Santa Monica with my boyfriend Jon, who is a certified massage therapist. (I am from the Chicago area, and spent many years in the Boston area. Jon is a native SoCalifornian.)
Santa Monica never gets old. The beach, the hills, the foodie opportunities, the culture, the shopping -- it's got it all. We take advantage of as much of it as we can, from membership in the Aero Theater to finding free yoga classes to the incredible food and the amazing beach. Let us show you around!
