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.

We had a great time in Scotts apartment with our family of four. The apartment is close to the beach and the 3rd street promenade. Upon arrival we could not enter the apartment but after a phone call to Scott the problem was solved and we could go in. The apartment was clean and the beds were made. We can highly recommend staying at Scotts place if you are planning a trip to Santa Monica.
We rented this apartment because we were passing through LA for a few days and wanted to be in Santa Monica and close to the beach. Scott's place could not have been more perfect: all the shops and restaurants you could want just around the corner and a 5-min leisurely stroll to the beach and the pier.
The apartment was ideal. Quiet, clean and ready to occupy with all the basics. Checking in was a breeze with Scott's instructions, and any questions I had received swift replies by text. We would easily rent from Scott again. Thank you for making our stay lovely and stress-free.
Light and bright with a great location for the beach and shops/restaurants. The parking under the building was a real bonus. Would happily stay there again. Thanks Scott.
Flat is well located and amore or less as described. Indeed it allows 5 people but there are only 2 queen beds. The fifth is supposed to sleep on the couch so he/she should rather not be too tall. Our daughter of 10 just fit in there. As to the kitchen/ dining area, there is only 4 chairs and cutlery, plates, etc for 4... Cookware is limited. So the only plus of this flat was that it was conveniently located. Cleanliness was just acceptable...
My 14-year old daughter and I stayed at Scott's place for 4 nights recently, and it was really great. The apartment was very clean, and looked just like the reviews. My daughter liked having her own private space up in the loft. We never saw Scott (which was fine, because his instructions were detailed and clear). We got in late at night and had trouble locking the door (it's a little tricky), but I called him and he answered right away and explained how to do it, which was great. The A/C was cold (which we appreciated, coming from Texas), and we had all that we needed to enjoy a few snacks (plates, paper towels, knives, etc.). The location is absolutely perfect (walk to everything!), and we also used the parking garage, which was helpful. The only issue we had was that the bikes had flat tires, but Scott told us the nearest place to get them repaired (a short walk away) and promised to reimburse us, which he did very quickly on PayPal. I would definitely recommend this place to others; it was close to the price of nice hotels in the area, but worth it for the free parking, the bikes, and the added privacy.
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!

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!
