Other Things to Note

Kindly look at my 140 + positive reviews and BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE! THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING MY LISTINGS! ***

Perfect stay in quiet neighbourhood. Unfortunately is not Elena's home, not the airbnb homelike feeling like all our other stays. 3 rooms only for rent airbnb with ONE shared bathroom. Elena comes every 1,5 days for half an hour and answered questions fast by email. Is little bit like youth hostel, so the cleaning of the dishes and silent in the night depends on the other parties in the other rooms. Attention on the parking signs, if you come by car to make no mistake, city of santa monica has zero tolerance, there are swarms of parking police officers to grab your money.
Beat place in Santa Monica! I really have a great time and Elena is super kind and beautiful...hope to be back soon!!
We extended my moms stay which went very smoothly and Elena was very responsive although we requested it late.
We stayed for three nights in Elena's Apartment. Unfortunately she could not be there when we arrived but she messaged all relevant information in advanced. She asked several times during our stay if everything is fine, we really appreciated that.
The rooms are exactly how they look on the pictures and it was very clean. The living room was very nice and the kitchen has got everything you might need.
The apartment is just a few minutes walking distance away from a public bus station which we used for the sightseeing (approx. One Hour one way) and to go to 3rd Street Promenade.
I can definitely recommend this room, especially when you concentrate your stay at the Santa Monica Area.
Thank you so so much to Elena!
Hi Elena, many thanks!!!! I had a great time at your place and I would suggest it to everyone!!!!More than that the position is perfect!!! See you next time!!!
Elena welcomed me at the apartment with a warm hug and a sunny smile. She escorted me to my room and showed where everything was and what was available. It's a great location if you want to hang out at the beach and go to the Santa Monica Pier. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Thanks Elena!
I really enjoyed meeting Elena, and staying at her "Happiness Hotel". It was easy to communicate with Elena as we coordinated my visit. She welcomed me to the place, and made sure I had everything I needed. The room and "hotel" was simple, but impeccably clean. The neighborhood was very quiet and I felt safe there. The location is just one mile from the beach at Santa Monica - and within walking distance of some excellent restaurants and cafes.
Most important, Elena is an extremely kind and happy person, and she was very attentive to make sure I had an outstanding stay. The next time I'm in LA, I very likely will stay at her place again.
