About MeKind, caring, considerate & fun-loving
I am an actress and yoga teacher. I love sunshine, the ocean, healthy food, dancing, yoga, tennis, travelling and meeting new people. I am very clean and my place is clutter free. My life motto is: Be Happy :)
The bus stop to LA, LAX, and Venice is right next door, 2 min walk. There is a Big Blue Bus that goes right from LAX to within 3 blocks from my apartment and I can pick you up there free of charge. Or Taxi is another way to get here from LAX, it will cost you about $ 45.
Happiness GuaranteeI guarantee you'll feel comfortable, rejuvenated and uplifted in my apartment. My attention to detail and integrity will always bring a smile to your face. I welcome you to read my reviews and look forward to being your host too :)
You have access to the entire apartment, living room, the dining area, and kitchen with balcony!
Interaction with Guests
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! :)
The Big Blue Bus is just outside the doorsteps and will take you to Westwood, Venice, and around Santa Monica. Uber is a great option to get around LA if you don't have a car.
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 and no noise after 10 PM!
Please take off the shoes in the hallway and please do your dishes, as you are sharing the place with other guests.
Elena is the most beautiful amazing person. She is the most amazing host you will ever meet. She has made me feel so welcome and has been so accommodating. She showed me around town took me out for dinner and introduced me to a new style of Yoga.
I would never stay anywhere else ever in Santa Monica other than with Elena. House was so clean, has all the facilities you need and the beds are super comfy.
Very nice apartment. Simple style, clean, quiet environment, and free car park lot available. Elena is nice, considerate. Will introduce this unit to my friend.
The place was a little further from the beach than what we thought and maybe a bit smaller. It was pretty basic and felt a bit expensive for what you get. But then maybe Santa Monica is quite overpriced. Elena was very welcoming tho and made sure we settled in ok, sorted us out with a parking permit and gave us a bottle of wine.
Elena was a very courteous and friendly host! We could contact her all the time and she replied within minutes.
Our room and the whole apartment was very clean, modern, large enough and had all you need for a stay in santa monica! One of the best things was that she has bikes to borrow and a free parking lot...so you can explore santa monica, venice and even malibu by bike!
Great location to go in santa monica ....just 1 km to the beach or or downtown!
We would definitive stay there again!
Elena is a perfect example of a very caring host. She was very accommodating with my check in time, had the place nicely cleaned and had a bottle of wine waiting when I arrived. If this wasn't enough, I had misunderstood her listing and she went out of her way to help.
Meeting her reminded me why AirBnb is a good idea.
If you have the opportunity to visit with her I recommend you take it.
As for a review on the apartment.. I barley noticed (and never heard) the roommates who were very friendly when I saw them. The location was great. The neighbours in the area were also very friendly.
The common areas are large so there is a lot of space to move around. I would rather have a private bathroom but that is my personal preference. We made it work.
Overall I would call this a good experience.
Dear Grant - thank you SO MUCH for such a generous and kind review - the feeling is mutual ! I really enjoyed meeting you and happy that we made it work for you with the bathroom and your stay was nice :)
Hope you come back to Santa Monica and I would be honored to be your host again!
Elena was very accommodating. The place was in a fantastic location! Close to everything! Elena was nice enough to lend us her bikes and provide us with a bottle of wine on arrival. She have us some great tips on places to go and was available to is if we had any questions. Would defiantly come back and stay here again.
Elena was an excellent host. The room was clean and comfortable. Everything I needed was provided.
