I do not live in this apartment, so you will be sharing the living area with other Airbnb guests ( each bedroom has a private lock for your peace of mind) . I live just 2 min away from it, so I am here for you as much or as little as you need me - happy to show you around Santa Monica, take you to a yoga class, you can borrow my bike and go for a ride, or to answer any questions about making your trip most fun and amazing one! :)
Other Things to Note
*** Please do not worry about some reservations being canceled on my profile lately. I used to manage 5 apartments, and one of them had a very bad flood with long repairs, so I was forced to cancel some of the bookings. It was an emergency and an EXCEPTION. Kindly look at my 140 + positive reviews and BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE! THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING MY LISTINGS! ***
Absolutely no smoking, please take of the shoes in the hallway and please do your dishes, as you are sharing kitchen with other guests. THANK YOU!!!
Had a fabulous stay at Elena's place. We never got to meet in person, but she was very responsive and we felt comfortable finding the place on our own. We also loved meeting the other house guests.
Great stay at Elena's Happyness Hotel! The bedroom and bathroom were both spacious and clean. Bed was very comfortable. Bikes were great, and the apartment is in a great location. Easy to walk to the beach or Montana Street.
The place met our needs for a one night stay and it certainly could have met our needs for a longer stay if needed. Elena let us check in a few hours early. There was a bit of confusion and a 30-45 minute delay getting into the place from arriving. In the end, we were satisfied. The place is clean and bright. Great area for walking to anything you need within 5-15 minutes, including the beach!
Elena's place was a great home away from home! My mom and I really enjoyed our little getaway to L.A. Elena was really sweet and the home was just what we were looking for. Thanks for the bikes, the free yoga passes (it's a great studio!) and the new years champagne. Cheers to you! See you next time :)
Elena was a fantastic host ! She will give you what ever you need to fell comfortable in her place and happy! The location is amazing..less than a 15 minutes walk to the Santa Monica Pier and Beach- 10 minutes to the 3rd Street Promenade! The Place was very clean and inviting wich made for a perfect stay! Overall, a great stay and I highly recommend Elena's place when visiting Santa Monica! I WOULD DEFINITELY STAY WITH HER AGAIN! *.* XOXO :)
I stayed in Elena's apartment for 5 weeks. It was perfect for my needs, there were various other travellers staying in the other rooms during that time and they were all very good flatmates. Elena was an attentive and helpful host, the neighbourhood is good - walk to everything you need (supermarket, restaurants etc) and an easy drive (or bus) to all the usual tourist places around Hollywood. It's an easy walk to the beach, but if you drive you'll be there in 2 minutes. Santa Monica is great and this apartment is a great place to stay if you want to experience it. I believe it's also good value.
