Great, very well-equipped space in a fab location for exploring the beachfront from Santa Monica to Venice beach.
The appartment is located in a great area of LA but it hasn't been deeply cleaned for years!! It looks fancy in the pictures but for us it wasn't at all... You should know this before renting it.
Exactly as its named: the perfect little beach studio. Short walk to the beach and close enough to the pier and restaurants to walk as well. Looks just like the pictures and is perfect for a couple to stay in. Travis was very accommodating as far as arrival time and even let us keep the parking pass for most of the day after check out, as our flight home was later that night.
Location is key for this studio - you couldn't be closer to the beach without paying extortionate hotel prices!
Travis was great at answering our questions when we arrived later than expected and gave us a few tips for the local area which was great.
This was a great location for a Santa Monica getaway. A very short walk to the beach, right around the corner from Main Street and great restaurants. The famed Santa Monica Pier is also a short walk in one direction, and Venice Beach is in the other. Although parking is available we decided not to rent a car for this vacation. We took a taxi from the airport and stayed for 3 days and never wanted to leave the area. Travis is a great host. Our luggage was lost for 24 hours and he gave us great advice on where to pick up inexpensive necessities. He also gave us some great restaurant recommendations. While not fancy, the studio itself is comfortable and is well equipped , and has plenty of room for 2 people. We even had another couple over for cocktails with no problem. We have stayed in other airbnb studios where you couldn't sit more than two people. We were a bit concerned about no sink in the bathroom, but it really wasn't an issue at all. If you are looking for a great location in Santa Monica this studio is an excellent choice.
The studio was great! We didn't spend a lot of time indoors as there was so much to experience in the area. Of course the greatest thing was the location, with only a block away from the beach it couldn't get any better! Travis was very flexible and we were able to check in earlier on arrival. He also let us store our luggage in his house after checkout when our flight didn't leave before nightfall.
We would love to stay here again!
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.
