Cozy by the Sea was really a great and lovely Place! We absolutely enjoyed our fantastic five day stay! It's spacy and clean and very convenient and a perfect location to recreate at Santa Monica Beach and explore LA!! Shereen was a host who answered every question we had immediately and Mäde it a wonderful experience! We would love it to come back!!!! Thank You!!!!! Michael, Ute and Tim
We had a great check-in experience, it was very easy. The house in general was in a great spot - closer to Venice than Santa Monica. Shereen was very accommodating to help us with any questions, she was particularly quick writing back on Airbnb.
The place was just as advertised. Very cozy, comfortable and close to everything. And Shereen couldn't have been more accommodating! We had a great experience!
Shereen was super welcoming and a great host. The listing was well described, although I would say that it is best suited for 2 not 3. We loved the location, the house and the feel of the area. Shereen also accommodated us based on our check-in and check-out times and the transaction was ultra smooth. I would go back.
Shereen made everything effortlessly simple. Her communications were prompt and direct and the check-in/check-out process was the easiest I've ever experienced. Since we weren't sure what time we were going to head to the apartment, it's was nice to have a pre-arranged way to get the key without having to bother Shereen.
Her cute cottage-like apartment made us feel at home: a comfortable bed, clean bathroom, cozy kitchen—and the added perk of Netflix. We found some amazing tapas restaurants in just a 5-minute walk and a wine store with an excellent selection. I found a bottle of wine there that's no longer available at our shops in SF! The walk to the Santa Monica pier was gorgeous.
If you want to stay far enough away from the beachfront craziness, but still get all the perks of staying in Santa Monica, this is the place to be.
My boyfriend and I had a fantastic stay at Shereen's listing. The unit was exactly as described if not better. It was meticulously clean, spacious, and comfortable. The location is absolutely perfect for accessing the beach. Further there are several coffee shops, restaurants, and other retail shops nearby. We were a big fan of using the beach cruisers to get around, but if you don't bike, all of these things are only about a 10-15 minute walk away at most.
We had a car with us and were easily able to find street parking in the neighborhood.
Overall, Shereen was very helpful and promptly responded to any of our questions via email/text when they came up. Most appreciated of all, we felt like we had our own space during our stay which was exactly what we were looking for. Could not have asked for a better visit and we hope to be able to stay with her again in future travels to LA!
This is a lovely place, we had a wonderful time!! Perfect location and wonderfully furnished, it immediately felt like home and we had a hard time moving out again after 7 days. We would definitively come again!
