Really enjoyed our stay in Santa Monica, perfect location and well equipped apartment
We didn't actually meet Travis on this occasion, however his communication was great he let us know how to access the accommodation and where everything was. The location is amazing, close to everything you could want for a stay in Santa Monica.
Lovely neighborhood, easy on-street parking with permit. Travis was super-accessible by text as we arrived, and later, graciously saved the day by providing a much-needed Kindle charger! The space is as pictured, comfortable and clean.
Travis contacted me well before arrival to give instructions on accessing the studio and was really patient with my questions about parking. The studio is small but clean with a comfortable couch and bed. Bring your own shampoo and soap though since there isn't any. Walking distance to all the major attractions in Santa Monica.
Host was amiable and available upon check in. Neighborhood is the strongest reason to book the unit; great walking distance to beach and town. Description of this converted garage was very accurate, as were the amenities within the studio. Perfect for very casual beach going guests who will not be spending time indoors and want to start the day early due to some adjacent morning noise.
Price is fair compared to other true apartments and units built as studios.
About the Host, Travis
Originally from South Africa, I moved to Santa Monica for the sun and surf.
I can let you know about all the hidden gems of Santa Monica or just provide a great place to stay.
Always preferring to stay in rental homes than hotels when traveling, I've really enjoyed sharing my beach abode with travelers.
