We had a great stay at Elena's place. It is in a quiet but central location. The room is huge, with a lovely bathroom and very comfy bed! The whole apartment is light and airy. A large fan is provided to keep the room cool. I would recommend Elena's place.
Me and my husband had a very nice stay at Elena's apartment. The description and the pictures match reality. It was a cute and comfortable room with a private bathroom. Everything was clean. There was enough space to hang your clothes, extra towels.. The kitchen was completely available for us with everything necessary and so it was the living room so it felt like staying at home. There were other two guests in the apartment but we had different schedules and we only saw them once. We could park on the house parking lot, out of the street, so we avoided getting a ticket and we also could borrow one of the bikes available for the guests.
I also loved the neighborhood! You can find everything you need (pharmacy, coffee, Whole Foods) just a couple of blocks from the apartment. It is not a walking distance to the beach but this wasn't a problem at all. Elena was very kind and before we even met she gave us all the necessary information and kept in touch. It is definitely a place I would recommend to a friend or stay over again in the future.
Nous avons été particulièrement bien accueillis par Elena. Elle a tout fait pour que notre séjour soit le plus réussi possible. La chambre est spacieuse et agréable. La plage est un peu loin mais Elena nous a mis des vélos à disposition.
Elena's place is really nice. It's in a quiet part of town (which is good) but within walking distance of the beach. Parking is ample in the area and we were able to use Elena's parking permit for the building for 2 out of 3 nights.
Elena was out of town while we stayed but she was regularly in contact with us and her friend Tristan helped us when we arrived and saw that we had everything we needed.
Excellent. Room was as expected. A bottle of wine, bottled water and a selection for breakfast.
BEST ROOM and LOCATION... EVER! SIX STARS! Elena was there to greet me with a great smile! This place is hard to describe just how wonderful the happiness hotel is. Quiet room, soft, firm, large bed. Private bath room with the best shower head ever. Plenty of space. There is a large shared room with a television and a nicely stocked kitchen. Did I mention the bed? I stayed in a few days just to do work on that bed. It was great. Area is super safe. Plenty of food choices and bar and cafes 5 min walking distance away. Coin op laundry in building. Have a bicycle? Plenty of space outside the building to lock it up. Best room ever...get the master bedroom you will love it.
This apartment is a shared apartment with 3 bedrooms rented individually.We had a bedroom with private bathroom.Everything was fine and we enjoyed our stay in Santa Monica.
