Clean, sunny, & zen... This is your perfect get-away! Set your mind at ease in my peaceful abode where you can comfortably rest & recharge. And if/when you're feeling adventurous, just borrow my skateboard or surfboard for a true local experience :)
Relaxing living room with gas fireplace, huge TV w/ Netflix & AppleTV, and of course meditation pillows.
-- ask about weekly discounts -- Very clean space. Good vibes... There's been a lot of yoga and meditation in my apartment. Beautiful balcony. Tub is great for baths. Epson salts and candles at the ready. King sized Sterns and Foster mattress. Gorgeous balcony that connects the living room with the bedroom. Fully stocked kitchen with granite counter tops. Ready for some yummy home cooking. Top of the line brand new frig. The building is the best maintained in the entire neighborhood with luscious gardens and friendly neighbors.
Laundry room, swimming pool, and a reserved space in the building's controlled access parking garage as well as parking pass for additional street parking if you have more than one vehicle.
Interaction with Guests
There's opportunity for interaction depending on if I'm in town or not. I'll most likely be there to meet you and show you around the place at a minimum. However, in some cases (like if I leave town in the morning and you arrive late in the evening) my assistant might show you in or in rare instances, leave a key for you.
It doesn't get any better than this neighborhood in Santa Monica. Safest and most convenient home base to explore the area.
Located on the corner of 3rd and Idaho, this apartment is close to the beach, shopping, and all the the major tourist destinations. All the while, you're getting a peaceful nights sleep in a safer residential area just a few blocks from the action.
If you have a car, you will have an assigned spot in the building's secure garage.
Keep in mind that if you want to stay on the westside you might not need a car at all. You can walk to all the essentials and buses and uber are easy as well.
I have 4 beach cruisers that you can borrow that are included for no extra charge. They are shared between my two rental properties (the properties are only one block apart) You can reserve them in advance / first come first serve... Just ask!
There are also several good bike rental shops nearby as well.
And of course you can always borrow one of my skateboards!
Other Things to Note
Please try to keep your luggage to a minimum or let me know in advance so we can make sure this beautiful residential building keeps it's vibe. (I've had guest come with many bags of luggage before and it can be disruptive to the vibe. But don't worry... If you have a lot of bags we'll figure something out, we just need to plan it out ahead of time.
No party people, cigarette smokers, children, pets. Need to be cool / show discretion... You'll be staying over as my friend. I will do my best to make sure the building manager knows you're coming in advance and then introduce you as well. This is an expensive building and people like continuity, so I just ask that your mindful towards the manager and neighbors. My assistant or I will be available if you have any questions or concerns, and I'll also leave you with the contact information of your next door neighbors who will know that you are a an Airbnb guest... They will also be available in case you have any trouble (like losing a key or something) as well.
Cortland is fantastic! With this being my first Air BNB, I was a bit apprehensive but Cortland made me feel right at home from the minute he met me at the curb to welcome me to his place. His apartment is very homey and had little touches like bottled water by the bed, beach towels readily available and a basket filled with all kinds of snacks. It was those little touches and his outgoing personality that made me feel right at home. The apartment is in the best location - walk to the beach, Whole Foods, Starbuck or the Promenade in just minutes. The kitchen was adequately equipped so it was easy to whip up dinner a couple of nights during my stay. The bed is super comfy and I loved that I was able to sleep with the sliding doors open to let the beautiful Cali breeze in. The grounds of the building were very well maintained and I felt very safe going in and out of the building at all times of the day and night.
The apartment was extremely clean, the internet was spot on and the Apple TV was great for the nights I stayed in.
Cortland was very attentive and answered any questions I may have had and I liked that he checked in with me just to make sure everything was going well.
I will definitely be back! I cannot wait to stay here again.
The neighbourhood couldn't have been better. What a perfect spot. Cort made us feel super welcome and he thought of absolutely everything we might possibly need to make our stay perfect.
Cortland is in love with his work and his apartement is cool!!.. very clean, elegant, sunny flat with any kind of detail one can need is considered and provided.
He explained every detail to me in the apartement and provided of a luxury 5 star hotel comfort.
10-15 mnts walk to 3rd Promenade, 4-5 mnts to Ocean Blvd and beach, 8-10 mnts to the Pier.
i m thinking if coming back there to enjoy more as my stay was only for one night.
Not much I can add that hasn't already been said by other commenters. I will say it is everything described and more. Awesome apartment in a perfect location. Cortland was a great host. He went above and beyond to give us suggestions in the area. Would 100% stay here again and recommend to friends and family.
We stayed for 10 nights in Cortland's apartment and we loved it. It was very neat, cosy and quiet. The place is very well located in Santa Monica and is very close to the ocean. Cortland was extremely nice and open to help with anything we needed. We really enjoyed our holidays in Los Angeles and thank you again Cortland!
My husband and I stayed at Cortland's apartment during our vacation in Santa Monica. The apartment itself was great and the location was perfect. We could walk to shops, restaurants, and the beach. Cortland was super friendly and helpful when we arrived, and the apartment was clean and lovely. I would highly recommend staying here! Thanks for everything, Cortland!
I do love his place!! Very clean, comfy, everything is well organized and also Santa Monica beach is just few blocks away. Cortland is great host he made my stay easy and safe. I highly recommend this place.
