This apartment is in the epicenter of downtown Santa Monica at the corner of Broadway and 5th St. Only a short walk to the Santa Monica Pier, beach, great restaurants, amazing shopping and much more. The street is still nice and quiet in the evenings. It's truly the best location in LA.

Other Things to Note
I have two beach cruisers for your use so that you can enjoy one of the best activities of Santa Monica/Venice.. cruising the boardwalk.
Pets are OK, but please let me know you will be bringing one.
I'll take care of all of the laundry but please take out all trash and wash dishes before departing
Great apartment and location. Just a short walk to the beach and pier. The apartment was not cleaned when we arrived, but Scott came and fixed it straight ahead. Both of the bikes had flat tyres, so we could not use them.
The location of the apartment/loft was perfect. Right by all the action without being in the middle of it. Close to the beach and a great shopping district! Any store you can think of is there. The place was just as described. Modern and clean. King size bed was very comfortable and was very nice having a laundry right in apartment. We would definitely recommend this place over a hotel any day!
Beautiful apartment, very close to Santa Monica beach. Everything was clean and great, we had a great stay in Scott's apartment !
We had a great stay here and the apartment was close to everything we wanted to check out in the area. Perfect place for us as a family to stay. If we come back to Santa Monica we could stay here again. We had a brief contact with Scott before checking in and he was very helpful.

Fabulous flat in a great location. Santa Monica is lovely and the flat is located where you can walk around easily to the beach, pier, great restaurants, shopping and clubs. We had a car and having a parking spot in the garage below the building was easy and convenient. The flat was comfortable and had bikes available for our use, however, we didn't have the chance to use them. Scott had given us instructions on what to do for entry upon arrival. Unfortunately we couldn't seem to access the building using the code we were given. We attempted to contact Scott with no luck. Luckily for us two girls came along and entered the building letting us in. Once in we had no issues entering the flat. The kitchen is well fitted out with appliances (washer and dryer were great to have as we'd been on the road for weeks) however, we found cooking utensils next to nothing. So, as a result we didn't cook but we did use the microwave and the Keurig Coffee maker. A big plus for us was the electric tea kettle! Being from England we love that cup of tea and in the USA you don't find many kettles - only coffee makers! Bedroom was good sized and the bed was great. Very comfortable. I would recommend a small table and reading lamp on both sides of the bed. (a TV in the bedroom would also be a great addition). Also a light connected to the light switch would be nice and make it easier when entering at night when it's dark. The bathroom was fine for us. The only issue we had was that the shower pull-up lever was 'stuck' in between the tap and the shower having water run a little out of each. With some tricky plumbing we got it loosened up and working. Carpet looked a bit 'tired' and needing a clean (lots of stains that show as it is a light coloured carpet). We found that we had to run water for what seemed like forever to get warm water out of the hot tap. Once it came, it was very hot. We found this odd as everywhere we had been in California they were very conservative with water due to drought. Plenty of paper supplies were provided. All-in-all, we would recommend this flat and would stay again when back in the LA area.

About the Host, Scott
I'm 33, and year ago I decided to hang up the security of a corporate job and travel the world... 18 months later I'm still traveling. To help me pay for my adventures I've listed my Santa Monica apartment on Airbnb.
I'm a 4th generation native to Los Angeles and happy to help you see the great parts of LA that aren't in the Guidebooks.
I look forward to connecting with people traveling to Santa Monica and aim to make each guest experience this beautiful place like a local.
Thanks for checking out my place and I hope to talk with you soon!
