Basic apartment in a great location. Good parking and communication but it's a pretty standard apartment that photos well

Fantastic location....super close to the beach and Santa Monica Pier....but I missed having a bathroom sink and a bathtub and realized this is important to me during a stay of more than 1 night

The owner was fast in getting back at me. The place seemed safe and I have no complaints about it. The only thing is the price came out a bit high after cleaning fees etc but oh well. Didn't really tour the area since I just practically slept there but it looked alright. Cheers.

Fantastic place and does what it says on the tin. Rough and ready, do not expect luxury but it does the job and the location is perfect. Travis was also lovely and was very helpful whenever I had an issue! Would recommend!

The cottage was just as advertised (not fancy, but everything we needed) & the location is fantastic - an easy walk to the beach or shopping or dinner. It's a great value and the one time we needed to contact Travis, he responded & helped us out right away. A great stay.

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.
