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

Elena's Happyness Hotel was the best place to stay in Santa Monica! She made us feel very welcome, the room was perfect and the bed was extremely comfortable. The location was perfect and Elena provided bikes that we could borrow which were fantastic for cycling to the beach and around Santa Monica/Venice Beach. A parking space was also provided which was very handy. I would strongly recommend staying with Elena if you're headed for Santa Monica!!!
Elena was a very charming host. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and in a great location. We had the added advantage of sharing the apartment with some lovely people from Australia and France. The bikes were also very useful to get around.
Really good first airbnb experience. Elena was a wonderful host. Rea;;y nice people also staying there. Clean. Comfortable. Extremely good location. I would recommend it. My only difficulty was sharing a bathroom with 4 other people (2 couples). Mostly it was not a problem but a couple of times I needed to be in there when it was occupied.
Dear Jack -
Thank you for your kind words . I am grateful you liked the place and the location and other guests.
Please help me understand this : the bathroom was to be shared only between TWO rooms - yours and another one next to yours with only ONE couple in it , so it was supposed to be used by 3 people total - yourself included. It was not 5 people , as the third room has its own private bathroom.
Looking forward to hearing from you and again thank you so much for your wonderful review!
With Love Peace and Light
Elena came and picked me up at the beach in the afternoon for my check in, I didn't have a lot of luggage so that was a convenient way of doing it. I liked the neighborhood, which is not too far from 3rd Street Promenade nor the beach. I walked home pretty late one night, but didn't feel unsafe walking up Santa Monica blvd, as long as you know to take precautions I think you'll be fine, only Euclid street was poorly lid though.
The appartment is really pretty, and the others that was already staying there were such nice people. The room was comfortable, although the bed was a bit hard for my preferances. Bathroom and kitchen are in good standard.
Also I could borrow a bike which contributed to me having a wonderful Sunday ridning it by the beach to Venice and back.
Thanks for a great stay in Santa Monica! Definitly my favorite part of L.A.!
This was my very first airbnb experience and it couldnt have been better. Elena is the perfect host and it is the absolute best place to stay! Noone should miss that. I am so thankful to elena for everything. I felt pure happiness and she took care of everything! I can also recommend to everyone to try her class at naam yoga - fun guaranteed
Elena's place was great and in a perfect location. She was very accommodating and flexible regarding some last minute travel changes as well. The yoga perk is awesome and she really goes out of her way to make herself available for any and all questions as well as making you feel at home! Definitely recommend this spot for future stays.
Nice location ! Shops and restaurants are within walking distance :) will b back if ever!
