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.
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 a couple of beach cruisers that you can borrow that are included for no extra charge. 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.
Sofa is less than a year old with removable cushions for the occasional couch surfer. Track lights set up with a dimmer to get the mood right.
It was a great stay, and within walking distance of Montana Ave., the promenade, and the beach. The host was very responsive and it was easy to check in and out. Lots of extra touches, thanks!
Beautiful flat in a great location. Clean, comfortable and homely with every detail thought through very carefully. Thank you very much for hosting I will hopefully be coming back soon!
Real talk: if you are looking for an Airbnb in Santa Monica and are considering this as one of your options, look no more. You should definitely stay here.
This was an absolutely top-notch experience from beginning to end. We didn't get to meet Cortland, but Nazy was there to greet us when we arrived and had the apartment set up beautifully. The fridge and kitchen were stocked with snacks and drinks. Every other amenity you might need (beach chairs, laundry detergent, toiletries, espresso machine, and much more) was there for the taking.
Basically, this Airbnb was the exact opposite of everything that usually sucks about staying in hotels. Instead of a $6 hotel bottle of water, Cortland and Nazy left plenty of free water around. The parking space was included for free, whereas a high-end local hotel would charge $40/day. The Netflix account was logged in on the huge flatscreen TV so entertainment was taken care of too.
As for the apartment itself, it literally looks exactly like the pictures. They are a perfectly fair and accurate representation of the place. Very nice and airy in a great Santa Monica location.
I could go on about other great features of this apartment (sweet sound system, printer all set up on the wifi and available for use), but I think I've made my point. Cortland is just doing it the right way with this Airbnb and you can see that in the quality of all the feedback.
Needless to say, I would strongly recommend this spot to anybody looking for an Airbnb in Santa Monica. To Cortland and Nazy, thanks for having us and we'll be back if we're in the area.
Great reception from Nazy, great apartment and location. Thanks for everything, hope to come back again.
We were met at arrival after confirming our flight and time we would come in, and everything was taken care of. It truly felt like my own apartment for our time there, and I can find nothing of fault. Pictures were accurate, and the space is ample and very comfortable. To give a small example: the host forgot something in the house, and tried to setup a time to come get it. I was out with friends and did not get the message right away, and instead of coming into the apartment without confirming it would be ok, the host did without what they wanted. That is the kind of customer service that makes the experience comfortable and would make me recommend Cortland's apartment to any of my friends.
I really loved staying in Cortlands apartment. It was spacious, clean and perfectly situated. It is really a great location since you can walk anywhere! I felt welcome and the communication was very good. The apartment had everything you can ask for and I slept like a baby in the comfortable bed. I would recommend everybody to stay here when in Santa Monica. Thank you!
Great apartment - great people! Thank you, Cortland and Nazy.
I was in LA on business and this apartment is what you want at the end of a long day of driving around town. It's exactly as described: immaculately clean and well organised with coffee, teas - even beer in the fridge - all there too.
It's on a quiet residential street in Santa Monica, just a few mins walk from the cliff tops overlooking the beach and the 3rd St Promenade, so when you do get 'home', you don't have to drive anywhere to have fun.
Cortland and Nazy kindly met me at the apartment even though I arrived on a late flight and were very helpful when I wanted to leave late too. I look forward to staying here again.
