Interaction with Guests
I will be happy to assist my guests with any tips or any help they may need during their stay.
Lovely beach community. Clean and quiet.
You can rent a car at the airport. There is also bike rentals in Marina del Rey and you can also take the bus which comes from the airport and can take you to Venice and Santa Monica; there you can always change to another bus to take you towards Beverly Hills and Hollywood.
You can rent my bike (brand-new Electra beach cruiser with 5 gears) for $5 a day. This would apply for everyday of your stay.
Other Things to Note
Microwave, toaster, espresso machine with Colombian coffee, juice and food processor/mixer available.
If you like cooking, there are plenty of spices and all utensils you may need. There is a very cute French Bulldog who lives here (Paco), in case if you have any dog hair allergies and need this information.
Please leave apartment as tidy as possible. Take Trash out in case maid cannot make it the same day. Let me know if anything is broken so that I can replace it. I will consider some dogs if well behaved. Please turn any lights you are not using and do not waste water. Recycle, recycle, recycle.
The studio itself is cozy and has everything you would ever need to relax at home. The bed is sooooo comfortable and the balcony is also relaxing. You also feel very private in the studio, never ran into problems with the neighbors. Parking is easy to find during the day, but as expected in LA, finding a spot at night can be a mission. However, I never walked further than a block away for a spot. The neighborhood itself is very safe, which is awesome considering you're in LA.
Adriana was fantastic and very accommodating. She's responsive and friendly. She checked in on me every once in a while to make sure I didn't die, which was kind of her.
The only bum part about the studio are the smoke detectors. It's really sensitive, so keep that in mind if you're a home cooker. Other than that, this studio was what I needed when coming to LA. Adriana and her studio are both awesome and I'm sure others would agree.
Adriana's apartment was clean and had everything you need. She was very accommodating and communication was always immediate. The apartment opens to the inside like a hotel and all the units are inside a locked door so it is very safe. It is 5 min from a wonderful beach that is spacious and no one is there. You will feel like it's your own. There is 11.5 miles of walking/biking trail along the water. I would definitely stay there again!
I stayed in Adriana's apartment for 5 nights with my girlfriend and it was great! She made it easy for us to check in even at a late arrival of 11pm. Her apartment is absolutely spotless and firstly, the bed is literally the most comfortable thing you can ever sleep in! Theres a lot of space, the kitchen is really nice and modern and has every appliance you could ask for. There's a washer and dryer which is always a plus when traveling and the bathroom is really nice too. She has a nice balcony to sit outside and eat and the sunsets are breathtaking. It's a nice quiet neighborhood, close to the airport and if you have a car you can get anywhere and parking is so easy to find anywhere in the street. I would recommend anybody to stay here!
We stayed for 5 days on Adriana's lovely studio. The apartment itself is amazing and Adriana was a wonderful host.
Adriana's apartment was as described. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the apartment. We didn't meet Adriana in person but she always responded to our messages and answered our questions.
This listing was just as expected and so much more. The apartment was exactly like the pictures and was kept very clean. The bed was so comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with fresh herbs for cooking. Adrianna even left little shampoo and conditioners for us! Adrianna was always available for suggestions on restaurants, beaches, etc. Oh and the sunsets were amazing! Her view of the city and mountains is breath taking. If you are staying in the Santa Monica area, there is only one place you should consider staying and that is Adrianna's fantastic studio because it really is fantastic...and charming. Thank you so much Adrianna. We will be back!
