Comfortable room with beautiful garden and patio in stellar location for everything "Santa Monica". Private parking, only 6 blocks from beach, less for shopping and restaurants. Easily accessed from LAX. Your host is a mellow, well-traveled Brit.
Great private room with access to the two patios and garden, just 0.6 miles/1km to the beach! Walking distance to dozens of restaurants, grocery stores, parks, and public transportation. The one dollar bus to LAX is steps from the front door. Despite the proximity to the nightlife, the neighborhood is VERY quiet and charming. You'll sleep well in the cozy little room and enjoy your tea in the garden. Off-street parking for your rental, a hot commodity in a beach community!
3 PM check-in, check out is at 12 PM
This neigborhood just rules. The street where the property exists is a quiet cul-de-sac where everyone knows everyone and one can be safe on an evening. The place is situated in walking distance to everywhere Santa Monica related (walkscore is 89!).
Indeed there is good public transit. A frequent bus to LAX or UCLA departs and arrives to the same block for only $1 ride. Other buses nearby serve LA, Culver City, Venice Beach. If driving, Interstate 10 is only 2 minutes away.
Please no smoking indoors, and as it is a quiet neighborhood I ask that you be respectful of the neighbors after 10PM. Please no parties or groups of guests, and due to the presence of cats no other animals are allowed at this time.
Had a wonderful time staying with Peter! He was super helpful with suggestions of places to eat and grab a drink! His house is in a great location, a cute little dead end street only a few blocks from the beach!! The room was perfect for what we needed and for two of us comfortably. Would definitely stay with Peter if we were in the area again.
Peter was a really welcoming host, he gave me great information so that finding his place was easy. The flat was clean, bright and welcoming and I had everything I needed and more. The position was quiet in a private road with no traffic noise. I slept like a baby. I felt right at home immediately. Great advice about the local area and generally a brilliant stay in a perfect position.
Hey Christine, thank you for your feedback! The cats are listed under the listing details section "The Space". I usually check with each guest as well by message that they took note of this. I can add this information more prominently in other parts of the listing information.
Really enjoyed our stay with Pete. His home is comfortable and relaxing. And it's close to the pier and some great restaurants!
We liked staying at Peter's place. It is quiet, in a nice neighborhood,
well connected with the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus system. Peter was very welcoming and quick to respond to questions before we arrived. Our bedroom was pleasantly light, but a bit small. There is a lovely yard with plenty of sun.
Peter was a very welcoming host who made me feel very comfortable. The house is in a fantastic location - only a short walk to Santa Monica Place, 3rd Street and the beach. He has 3 adorable cats who are very friendly. The house was very clean and has a beautiful garden and also a courtyard.
Peter is a relaxed gentleman. His flat is welcoming and functional. Nice garden and porch to sit and have coffee. The beach is easily accessible, just a 15 min walk past a good Coffee place and you can sit on the shore and sip on your coffee watching all the morning activity.
I would recommend anyone a stay at Peter's place.
Peter was delightful! He went above and beyond with recommendations for things to do in the area. Room and bathroom were clean. Overall, great experience.
