Stay in stylish feng shui compliant home in perfect location and enjoy your own private bedroom with attached bathroom. Garage parking, wifi, full use of gourmet kitchen and house. Walk everywhere or use my bikes to visit the beach and watch the sunset. Bus stops nearby and lots of activities.
You'll feel at home in your queen size bed with clean Egyptian cotton sheets, fresh towels, hair dryer, soap, iron... just bring your tooth brush (if you forget, I can provide that too!). Beyond the guest bedroom is the office with a daybed and comfy inflatable bed for larger groups. And finally, the master bedroom if needed for groups of 5 or more. I keep a clean and organized house and everyone has their own space.
You're renting a room but have access to entire house... laundry facilities, gourmet kitchen, wifi, garage parking, 5 bicycles, cable TV. I travel 12 days a month for work, therefore you sometimes will have the house to yourself (message me before booking to check my availability).
Since LA is the entertainment capital of the world... you are the star of your stay. I'm simply the supporting cast. You need help finding the best restaurants or the hidden jewels that no tourist know about? I can guide you in the right direction. Want to join me for tango, yoga, swimming, biking... you're welcome to tag along. You have your visit all planned out? I'll be invisible and you'll be on your own. It's all about you.
My house is located on a safe and quiet tree lined street with a neighborhood feel yet with easy access to active commercial streets. You are not a slave to your car, everything is within walking or biking distance. Go for a walk on the beach or down trendy Montana Ave and explore unique boutiques, enjoy a cup of tea at an outdoor coffee shop and watch the paparazzis chase the celebrity du jour. You won't want to leave.
Bus stops are located nearby. Bus number 3 will take you to/from LA airport for $1. Buses also are available to downtown LA, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Venice (you can bike also)...
This is important, I ask that no meat product be eaten, brought or cooked in the house. I've been a vegetarian for over 25 years and desire to keep meat out of my house. What is meat? It seems to be a blurry concept to some. Meat is any animal product to include beef, pork, poultry, seafood, shellfish or animal organ. Dairy products such as eggs, milk, cheese... are acceptable and can be brought. Some guests have come and criticized my decision and tried to sneak meat into the house, they've labeled my lifestyle "unnatural", "dangerous", "anti-christian"... I'm making a big point of mentioning this aspect so you know what to expect and no one is surprised or disappointed.
I average 25 requests per day, please message me before making reservations. I travel for a living and want to make sure I'm available to greet you. If I agree to rent please make reservations as soon as possible, someone else might beat you to it. I give priority to people who have a well filled profile, thanks.
Great home, fantastic host! It was a delightful stay. The home was lovely and close to many shops
Carl was an amazing host. The house is beautiful and quiet. Extremely convenient location, less than a block from Montana, close to Whole Foods, multiple coffee shops, the beach, etc... Carl let me borrow a bike to meet friends down on the Promenade. Private room was clean and extremely comfortable. Couldn't ask for a better host or place to stay!
Carl made me feel at home by setting up fresh towels, leaving a water bottle, and other nice touches. His apartment is very conveniently located in Santa Monica to shops, cafes, and just a 15 minute walk from the beach. I didn't get to meet him unfortunately as I arrived late and left early but I would definitely stay with him again.
We can't praise Carl enough. What a wonderful human being and a great host. Read the other reviews below and you will see that this is an excellent place. We will definitely come back. If you are looking for something amazing, then this is it. The location is great, the atmosphere is amazing and the host is wonderful.
We had a great time. Thanks Carl.
Carl was the ultimate host. More than happy to be supportive and helpful.
His location was perfect the bed comfortable. Was prepared for my visit. Even down to water , eye mask and ear plugs on my bedside table. He had a great kitchen with space to place purchased food. Was encouraging for me to use his spices and make myself at home.
I would recommend for anyone considering a visit to Santa Monica.
Wow I dont even know where to begin! First id like to mention this is our first air bnb experience. Frankly I was very nervous but at soon as we met Carl we were immediately at ease. Im so glad our first trip to L.A we decided to stay at Carl's. He is the nicest man you could ever meet. Sooo down to earth and an incredible amount of substance. His positive energy and his zest for life is infectious. Carl made us feel so comfortable like we were long time friends, we instantly felt connected like we could bare our souls to him. He was so informative and patient with us. We were lucky enough to get to spend an afternoon with him walking, talking, laughing, shopping and eating. Was so wonderful! The sad thing about the stay was that we only had two days at Carl's place :( We highly recommended anyone staying at Carl's. You will gain something so rare and valuable from it, a part from a comfortable stay, you will gain a beautiful friendship.
Thank you Carl for an unforgettable stay! Cant wait to stay with you again :)
I'm so grateful and lucky to stay at Carl's place and have chance to meet Carl. He really made my trip in LA so special and memorable, I never expected that I would have such an amazing experience in Santa Monica. Carl is the best host I've ever met and he can provide you rather than a simply living atmosphere but wonderful and unique lifestyle in the city. I spent great time with Carl and he's really easy to get along with. I enjoyed talking to him and sharing thoughts about China, food, dog, relationships and healthy lifestyle. Moreover, I start missing the Tango lesson now! I definitely would come back to Santa Monica again and still stay at Carl's place, cause I'm soooo curious about the Yoga lesson and can't wait to get surprised!
Carl's place was perfect! As my first AirBnB experience, he set the bar high. Although I only saw him once throughout my stay, he was extremely kind and had very easy instructions in order to access anything like the garage, wifi, bike locks, etc. Upon my next visit to the Santa Monica area, I will surely try to stay at Carl's again!
nothing but praise...
the house, the location and the host were all flawless. this is a real find, and i hope to stay there again.
We had a fantastic stay with Carl! Very helpful and nice person and a great, clean house at a wonderful location. We could use his bikes and he gave us directions, so we could explore Santa Monica and Venice ourselves. Would love to stay again. Thank you.
