Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The beachside studio was perfect! So close to the beach and healthy cafés. The room was private and quiet. Loved Santa Monica! Definitely recommend :)

  • Travis was great, the place met our needs.

  • Location was EXCELLENT! We did not rent a car and we were able walk almost everywhere. When needed, Lyft and uber got us where we needed to be. Bike rentals close by and beach was a block away.
    The studio itself was comfortable, but it was the location that makes this place so great. If you are a light sleeper, this may not be the place for you. The walls are thin and there is boulevard close by. But if you walked and did as much as we did, sleeping was not a problem :)
    Travis was always quick to respond to any questions when asked and has quite possibly, the most awesome dogs next to ours...
    It is close (email hidden), coffee shops (dog town was our fav) and restaurants. The pier was a beautiful 15minute walk away. You really could walk anywhere.
    We would stay here again.

  • Travis (email hidden) and was very helpful and generous. The studio is exactly as advertised; it's clean, comfortable, and fully equipped. It is also only one block from the beach, and one block from a charming shopping district with everything you could need. I made the reservation at the last minute and Travis had the studio ready to go the moment I arrived. He was very responsive to all of my questions from the start, and very kind and generous when I had the pleasure to meet him in person. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Es war ein super Aifenthalt! Das Studio ist gut ausgestattet mit allem was man braucht! Die Wege zum Strand in Venice und Santa Monica sind kurz, und das Santa Monica Pier liegt ebenfalls uns Eck. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Cafés, Laundry USW. ebenfalls zu Fuß schnell zu erreichen!

  • Studio was perfect! Just as pictured, walking distance to lots of restaurants and bars, Santa Monica Pier, and Venice Beach. Only about a block walk to the beach. Was out most of the time, and didn't actually get to meet Travis. I would definately stay here again.

  • Travis (email hidden) and more than helpful. The Apartment has a great Location and is kept very simple, the only downside is that you can see by the floor that it used to be a Garage. Would still recommend Travis any time though

  • We could not have picked a better location to stay for the three days we were in Los Angeles. Great location, just 1 min. walk to Santa Monica Beach. The room was perfect- a great size for two of us. The bed (queen size) was very comfortable. The rest of the apartment is beautiful, fully equipped, organized and clean. The parking permit Travis left us to use for our car was highly valued, as it's very difficult to find a space to park your car. Travis (email hidden)om the start to the very end he made us feel welcome and comfortable. What more could you want?

    Santa Monica- (email hidden) to stay in L.A.!!!
    Thanks for sharing your place with us, Travis!

  • This is a great location in Santa Monica. Moments walk to the beach, and from good food and beverage options. It is simple and used to be a garage but it only takes you about 5 minutes to acclimatize to that reality. I would stay here again with Travis. He was nice and easy to contact when we had any questions. Also, we booked late and he had the room ready on a moments notice.

  • Travis' apartment was great. It was exactly as listed and we couldn't have asked for a better location, which was walking distance from both Santa Monica and Venice. There are great places for brunch and coffee around the corner as well.

Originally from South Africa, I moved to Santa Monica for the sun and surf. I can show you the hidden gems of Santa Monica or just (email hidden) to stay. Always preferring to stay in rental homes than hotels when traveling, I've really enjoyed sharing my beach abode with travelers.
