SMALL PRINT (Imagine a theatrical “pom pom pom” on the piano as we say this. It makes it more movie-like and less menacing…grab onto your seats!)
A. Please do not disturb the neighbors or other building occupants at any time.
B. For your convenience, we have people nearby or on-site at almost all times, day or night, for your keys and unit entry (please do not disturb other residents for keys or access – thanks).
C. Please DO NOT discuss, ask about, say by name, or interact with others about Air BnB, especially not in front of the building, when arriving or departing or while on mobile phone on the property or street. Regrettably, the cities New York, San Francisco and Santa Monica are anti-Air BnB and aggressively taking measures to try and stop it, including incentivizing any and all residents. The less openly discussed, the better for everyone involved. Similarly, please ask about ‘departure or arrival,’ not ‘check-in or check out.’ THANKS!
D. Please, return the keys to us or the designated return spots (typically, on your nightstand). There is a $40 lock change fee for the non-return of keys.
E. Please be quiet in the building common areas. Contact Elisabet with any concerns.
F. No guests are allowed in the swimming pool area or swimming pool as it is only for the building permanent resident’s usage.
G. Please, there is no smoking in the unit, building or balconies, nor in front or behind the building.
H. Please do not keep food in the bedrooms, nor discarded food -- e.g., banana peels, apple cores, etc. -- in the trash bins (flies aren't your friend).
I. There is NO PREPPING OR COOKING OF SHELLFISH of any kind, especially shrimp, in the unit. There is an additional $100 cleaning fee if this is not followed (Stinky! Would you want to come after that?).
J. Please do not bring so much contents that it requires a U-Haul or truck to move in. There is no transitional living and you may not store furniture or sell furniture from the unit. This will incur a $250 penalty, immediate eviction or both. (Feel free to ask about this, it’s a funny story…)
K. Please do not leave ANYTHING whatsoever in halls for any period of time (e.g., shoes, sandals, luggage, gift bags, groceries, shopping, strollers, beach items, beach chairs, towels, children's toys, toddlers, children's vehicles, visiting friend's stroller, cribs [hey, don’t laugh, it happened – large crib with tricycles, balls and more... It looked like nursery meets a playground in MY HALL that inspired my neighbors to share all their beautiful pictures with me via text at the concert that I had to immediately leave... Doh!], or bags, anything whatsoever. I think that was every example imaginable…) neighbors will literally complain IMMEDIATELY. (Yes, this one is funny story too…)
I suppose I should say “please don’t set the place on fire” too, but I’m thinking that one is implied. Then again, I though that about the U-Hual…LOL
See, “that was easy.” No, our rules were easy, not shopping at Staples (insert smile, apologies to our foreign guests who don’t have Staples commercials. It would seem mildly funnier…).
We look forward to having you…honest! :-)
Elisabet m'a chaleureusement accueilli a l'aéroport et m'a conduit dans l'appartement. J'ai été amicalement accueilli par mes hotes: ils m'ont renseigné sur les activités et m'ont invité à partager leur repas. La chambre etait spacieuse et le lit très confortable. Je les remercie pour leur accueil et celui d'Elisabet!
Elisabet est venue nous chercher à l'aéroport, ce qui est très pratique, et a été extrêmement aimable. Notre hôte à l'appartement, Sterling, s'est montré tout à fait accueillant et nous a fourni tous les renseignements dont nous avions besoin. Il a aussi pris la peine de vérifier les recommandations de certains restaurants pour nous et de nous aider lors de notre départ, ce que nous avons beaucoup apprécié. Nous avons aussi aimé pouvoir bavarder avec Sterling et son amie Alisa.
L'appartement est très propre et lumineux et la chambre spacieuse et confortable (nous y avons tenu sans problème à 2 adultes et un enfant, avec les valises ). Il est également bien situé, à 10 mn à pied des restaurants de Montana Avenue, 5 mn de la plage et environ 20 mn du Pier), dans un quartier calme. Nous avons apprécié de profiter des fruits et boissons chaudes disponibles à volonté dans la cuisine. Une chose à savoir: il arrive que Sterling, l'hôte, dorme dans le séjour, et il n'y a pas vraiment d'espace pour prendre les repas (on peut éventuellement les prendre dans la cour si le temps le permet). A part un petit déjeuner rapide, mieux vaut donc prévoir de prendre ses repas à l'extérieur.
Really enjoyed my stay and felt very welcomed and at home. The apartment is in a great location close to the beach, lots of shops and restaurants. Room was spacious, clean, and the bed was very comfortable. Definitely recommend and would stay here again the next time I'm in town.
My experience was excellent and the location was perfect. Elisabet could not have been more helpful or accommodating. She was a fantastic host that I would recommend for anyone. An excellent airbnb experience.

If my guests like to socialize, then this is your home away from home…. if my guest like privacy… this is your home away from home too… you can interact with me as much or little as you want to. I will always respect my guests.
