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.
Cartland's place is very cozy and they are super nice! The place looks awesome and it's the best for yoga lovers. The location is the best part--only 5 min walk to the shopping area.
The location of this bright and cheerful condo could not have been better. Cortland and his assistant went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home. Plenty of fresh white towels! A wonderful Nespresso coffee maker every morning was the perfect touch until we were ready to walk down the street to Demitasse! Everything was tastefully and thoughtfully prepared for our arrival even down to a basket of delicious snacks in the kitchen and another basket of toiletries "in case you have forgotten anything" left in the bathroom. Thank you so much for your hospitality!
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!
This was the second time I rented from Cortland and Nazy and it was, once again, a great stay. The great location, well furnished apartment, and very responsive host all combine to make this the best way to visit Santa Monica compared to any of the local hotels.
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.
