Other Things to Note
There is so much to see and do in LA, from hiking the Malibu mountains, visiting the culture of downtown LA, or taking a ride up to the Hollywood bowl.
We would like people to enjoy there stay and as part of that strain we would like to keep the place reasonable quiet and calm especially after 11pm as we live in a very nice neighborhood. There are a limited amount of amenities such as toothpaste, toilet paper, ecetra. We expect guest to replace anything used and leave the space as they have found it. Thank you.
I had to have a two-bed or two bedroom accommodation at the last minute and Frank was agreeable. The apartment served the purpose, though it is a long walk to the beach on a 95 degree day. The apartment is okay if you need to be in Santa Monica and need at least 2 bedrooms, but do not care if you are not near the beach. Albertson's is half a block away if you wish to save money and eat in the apartment. The apartment was basically clean, but a little dirty around the edges - cabinets, tub, etc. The plumbing fixtures all work and seem like they have been there since the building was built (1970's??). There were some condiments and old juice in the fridge and personal things in the closets and bathrooms. It appears to be a man's apartment most of the time.
There is no air conditioning, so it can get warm during the day. At night the area was fairly quiet and relatively cool which was good for sleeping.
I was looking for a place to stay in Santa Monica (super last minute) and Frank quickly approved my request. That being said, make sure you give yourself ample time as it takes Frank awhile to get back to you regarding specific questions...I'm sure he's a really busy man.
Decent location that's walking distance from the nearest drug store or restaurant but quite a walk to get to the beach. The only down side is I thought it would be brighter inside the penthouse but that's okay since we were out in the southern California sun 95% of the time anyway.
Great place and great host! I highly recommend booking here since Frank made it hassle free.

I am from New York where I lived and studied Art and Film. After visiting Los Angeles I fell in love with the weather and space. Santa Monica and the south bay offer fun outdoor activities and a great scenic coastline. It is also moments away from the heart of Hollywood and the city life of Downtown L.A.. The things to do and places to visit are endless. When there is time to burn I enjoy a healthy life style with activities that surround the beach. At Night I love cocktails and meeting new people around Main Street and Venice. Art shows and events are always numerous in L.A. But a Dinner and a movie can always please my discontent. Hope your trip is a comfortable and fun experience to Los Angeles.
