Bright, sunny and inviting one bedroom beach bungalow, quietly nestled along the beautiful, tree-lined streets of northern Santa Monica. Adorably quaint and uniquely decorated, it's the perfect SoCal getaway home away from home!
I can't lie, I absolutely adore my apartment! I fell in love with the feel from the moment I walked in and have worked everyday since to make it a unique representation of me. A mix of old and new, bohemian and beachy, hand made and carefully sought out. It has slowly (yet organically) come together to feel like home. I hope you enjoy your time here as much as I do!!
Guests will have access to everything my lovely apartment has to offer! Full kitchen and eat-in dining room, large enough to fit six! Living room complete with an 90" oversized, down-filled couch. Spacious bedroom with a comfy tempurpedic king size bed. Fully stocked bathroom with stall shower and seperate soaking tub. Coin operated washer and dryer are also available in the detached laundry room.
Interaction with Guests
In most cases I will be there to greet you, provide the lay of the land and answer any questions. I'm happy to provide suggestions and tips as requested. Myself or a close friend will always be available by phone and an emergency back-up contact will be provided as well.

So sorry but no smoking or furry friends allowed! Also, as I am not charging a cleaning fee I expect that the apartment looks just as I left you with it (with the exception of laundering the towels and sheets). And please be respectful of my wonderful and friendly neighbors!! This apartment is my pride and joy, be kind!
Lauren was a fantastic host!! She is very responsive and we walked into a beautiful, clean apartment. Parking Passes were also provided, which made everything run smoothly!
Lauren left a sheet of things to explore in the area and nearby grocery stores, which was welcoming and helpful.
Staying in Lauren's Santa Monica apartment was a terrific way to ring in the New Year!
We didn't actually get to meet lauren but she was always very responsive if we had any questions. Her friend met us to let us in and was very sweet to show us around. Clean and very quaint. Was a cozy place to come back to after a day of this and that around the city. Love the bath tub! There's a piano that we were excited about because we're musicians but the upstairs neighbor apparently doesn't like music so oh well. Otherwise adorable place!
I really enjoyed my stay at Lauren's home. Right in the heart of Santa Monica, Montana Ave and all the shops, restaurants, boutiques and cafés are in walking distance. The beautiful beach is also in close proximity as is Whole Foods and many other conveniences. The apartment was so clean and welcoming; I got a tour of everything and a full list of FAQ's upon arrival. It is charming, cozy, and a spacious one bedroom. I would definitely recommend staying at Lauren's!!
Lauren was wonderful and flexible to our schedule! Her house was wonderful and relaxing, walking distance to everything! She provided a very helpful list of restaurant recommendations as well.
I absolutely loved staying at Lauren's place in Santa Monica. It felt like home to me. I was there for almost two weeks and the location was perfect. It took me only 20-25 minutes to walk to 3rd st. promenade and the beach. Lauren's place is also really close to a Whole Foods and other stores and coffee shops - which made it possible to enjoy my time in Santa Monica with out having to drive anywhere. Her apartment is very clean, comfortable, organized and is located in a safe neighbourhood. I would definitely consider booking the place again next time I'm there. Gordon
This location is perfect. Walking distance to beach, great restaurants and short drives to beautiful hiking and sightseeing. The apartment is warm, inviting and very comfortable. Our host was so very helpful with recommendations for everything from restaurants to hiking spots to must see things to do. We had an awesome time in Santa Monica staying here!!!!
Hi! I'm a nurse (originally from Pennsylvania) who immediately fell in love with the SoCal life when I arrived a few years ago. I love the beach, music and the incredible group of friends I've met out here. I love traveling around, getting the chance to see and experience new cities, and take in as much of life as I can each day!
