Our stay was fantastic. Comfortable room and Olivier is a great host. Only a few minutes bike ride to the beach which is great. We had a great stay and would definitely stay again.
Oliver was a great host, welcoming, friendly and professional. Everything was really well organized and with his straight forward instruction I had peace of mind that no matter of time of my arrival I will be fine to get in the flat by myself. In addition to his simple instruction he had all these tiny little stickers any place that you should remember something. It was great for me and also my 5 years old son.
The place itself was really clean, bright, with a specious empty closet. It was very close to ocean, nice restaurant and in a peaceful friendly neighborhood. 100% recommended
We were traveling along the PCH and we need a stay in Santa Monica. We found this lovely place, and since the first moment Olivier was very nice to us, the place is pretty and nicely decorated, and also 30 minutes walk to the pier. Oliver provide us with permission to park in the street. Just to feed the myth we did not meet Olivier but he was always there to help us. Excellent place!
Olivier was a great host, welcomed us on the day and showed us the room which was just what we needed. Place was clean and simple and the location was great. It was really easy to walk to the beach and to the pier and to anything else that we needed. Olivier was also very on hand to any requests that we had, would definitely stay again.
Olivier was there to greet us when we arrived. He gave us a tour of the apartment, and offered us suggestions regarding nearby places to visit. His communication with us before and during our stay was excellent.
The room was very nice with plenty of space, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was private, and was stocked with plenty of towels, a hair dryer, and anything else that might be needed.
The location was great! It was very convenient to LAX, and since this was just a brief stopover for me that was very important. It was also just a very short drive to Venice Beach, where I had lunch with friends who live within an hour of Santa Monica. Later, we walked from the apartment down to Santa Monica beach, and then continued our walk to the Santa Monica Pier. It was a great place for me to reconnect with friends in the area during my stopover, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone connecting through LAX or visiting the area.
Olivier was an amazing host! He was so helpful in helping us find things to do, and was extremely welcoming. The location was perfect. We always felt safe coming home at night and were very comfortable. It was a huge pleasure to meet him, and if we ever get the chance to return to Santa Monica, we know where we will be staying!
The place is just amazing! The room is comfortable and cozy and has a very good location, next to groceries, restaurants and few blocks from the beach. Olivier was really nice receiving us, very polite and kind! I strongly recommend you to stay there!

As an ocean scientist and adventure photographer, I travel often and have slept in a wide variety of accommodations, ranging from makeshift tent to luxury hotel. Consequently, I know what can make or break one's stay.
I believe that hospitality is key and I try my best to provide you with a clean, relaxing space to spend your time. Furthermore, I dedicate much attention to design and detail in order to bring you the perfect blend of taste, convenience, and comfort.
As a Santa Monica native, I also have solid local knowledge of the area and can therefore give you helpful suggestions on where to eat, hike, bike, shop or surf. Check out my Guidebook and don't be afraid to ask!
