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 :)

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.
The apartment was very open and light and perfect location to enjoy Santa Monica from. Cortland and Nazy were great host and left lots of goodies in the unit for me to enjoy. Will definitely look to rent from them again.
The unit was very nice and very well stocked with drinks, snacks and staples needed for our stay. Cortland was especially welcoming and made us feel very much at home. The neighborhood was peaceful, but close to all the action of Santa Monica.
My boyfriend and I had a great time at Cortland's apartment. Cortland really goes the extra mile and made sure we were comfortable, showed us around, provided towels and snacks, and even bikes for us to use. The location is great and just a short walk to the beach and also a short walk from tons of restaurants and stores on the Third Street Promenade. Highly recommend!
my wife and i thoroughly enjoyed our visit at cortland's apartment. the location is great. only 2 blocks to the beach to the west and just a few blocks from the montana avenue shopping and dining district to the east. we liked the residential character of the neighborhood since it was free from the noise and congestion of the area closer to the santa monica pier, yet close enough to get to that action if we wanted.
cortland and his friend Naz were great hosts. they stocked the apartment with all kinds of goodies and asked for and fulfilled our special requests. they met us upon our arrival and again helped us with our departure (they even helped with our luggage!). they could not have been nicer or more considerate.
the apartment is in great shape and very comfortable. there is a nice deck with some furniture for some outdoor living. the bed is very comfortable and the linens were quite nice. towels and other bath accessories were high quality and plentiful. the kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with cooking supplies. the private parking in the building's garage was secure and convenient. cortland has bicycles available too.
we would stay there again and have nothing but praise for cortland. he really cares and it comes through in both the physical appearance and function of the apartment and in his great demeanor. he made us feel like honored guests.
Awesome location, super comfortable and clean apartment, only bettered by being hosted by Cortland.
Met me to let me in for my late arrival to make sure I settled in. He really looks after you and the apartment is fully kitted with kitchen utensils, bottled water, snacks - all the comforts of home! Beach cruisers were a happy bonus.
Wish I could have stayed longer.
Fantastic host! Cortland is hospitable person. He was very helpful. The place is very comfortable and clean. Thanks for everything.
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.
