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.

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.
My girlfriend and I spent 4 days at Elena's place and we enjoyed our stay. The apartment is very well located in Santa Monica at a walking distance from the beach. The room was not very big but very convenient and clean. The check in was very easy as Elena dropped the keys under the mat. Even if we didn't see Elena, she inquired about our needs and comfort. We received a parking pass that allowed us to park the car on the street for free, which was very convenient. We would definitely go back to Elena's place!
Elena was in touch and answered any questions I asked. We never met as our schedules conflicted.
Elena is an excellent host and has a very warm, nice and clean room with a very comfy bed. Neighbourhood felt safe. About a 20min walk to Santa Monica Pier or if you want to get there faster you can lend bikes from Elena. We did that but unfortunately one bike got stolen the night before so we rented instead. Elena was supernice to compensate for that.
Very happy with our stay and would like to stay again when visting Santa Monica!
It was a nice room in a great area. Walking distance to Santa Monica beach and the surrounding area. I reserved on the same day of arrival, and Elena was very flexible and supportive. She answered immediately on my questions and provided me with helpful indications regarding my stay. I stayed just one night and unfortunately didn't meet Elena personally.
Elena was very kind, accommodating and understanding. This bedroom is the only bedroom (of the three in the apartment) that had carpeting. I would recommend trying to get one of the rooms with hardwood floors, if possible, but if not Elena is a wonderful hostess and she keeps this apartment very clean.
This was another good airbnb experience. Elena's apartment is clean, spacious, in a good and quiet location with parking space either on the street or behind the building. The photos and description are accurate. Elena was a great host and very helpful in making my stay as smooth as possible.
