nos hospedamos durante 5 noites no quarto do apartamento da Dona Qin Xie. O quarto é grande, possui frigobar, ela deixou utensilios de banho como (shampoo, condicionador, sabonete, cotonetes e toalhas) O quarto e a casa eram bem limpos. A comunicação era bem dificil pois ela não fala absolutamente nada de Ingles. Achei a casa pouco arejada e eles têm o costume de deixar as janelas sempre fechada. O bairro é muito bom e residencial e calmo. Possui uma padaria e um mercado a 1 quadra. O carro fica estacionado na rua (eles dão um TAG que permite estacionar na rua) o bairro é seguro, mas muitas vezes, não conseguiamos achar vaga na rua, chegamos a estacionar a 3 quadras da residencia. Tome cuidado com os dias de Limpeza, pois existem alguns dias e horarios que você deve retirar o carro de onde estiver estacionado.
Qin's daughter was there cleaning when we arrived, and another man also, so it was clean. Qin was returning from China, so we didn't meet her until later. She definitely does not speak much English, but this was not necessary. The apt. is about 2 blocks from the 3rd Street promenade, and 4 to the oceanfront park. It would be a 30 minute walk to the Pier. The room was large and comfortable. There was a little street noise, but it's the city. We couldn't find a parking place, but it was Saturday night. Keep your eye open for the $5 parking; you might need it.
The room is large and very clean, with sofa, mini fridge and TV. Also very private. Host also provided access to the kitchen as well as free coffee. Highly recommended!
It's a perfect location, quiet beautiful area, spacious bedroom and all you need for staying. We loved the place. Qin is helpful and kind host.
Qin was great and extremely responsive over text and phone. She also offered to do laundry when she saw my boyfriend's sweaty clothes hanging in the bathroom (my fault for not telling my boyfriend it's a shared bathroom, not a private bathroom). Qin was very communicative as to what to do with the keys and parking pass. I also should add that I speak mandarin and that made it even easier to talk to Qin.
This location is phenomenal! Qin made us feel very welcome, even though we were there for only one night and came in quite late. The room was comfortable, very clean, and quite sizeable (there's a couch, mini fridge, small desk, TV, and dresser in addition to the bed). We had a love time in Santa Monica.
The location was fantastic, walkable to beach, boardwalk and 3rd street promenade. It was incredibly helpful to have a parking pass for the neighborhood. The space was plenty big with a queen size bed, love seat and mini fridge.
Communication was difficult at first since Xie doesn't speak much English, we found email was best. Once we got to the apartment and got settled, all was fine.
Xie was a lovely host and her daughter was also very sweet.
