Furnished Ocean View Studio Available for rent....
Internet, wifi, hooked up. Fantastic location, on the corner of Ocean and Broadway Ave in downtown Santa Monica. Walk to the beach, bars, pier, 3rd street promenade, etc...
High ceilings allows for loft like feel. Excellent deal.
Equipped with plasma, sheets, linens, kitchenette, kitchen wares, etc.
Please take into consideration following caveats:
1. Although the location is fantastic, it is a busy street corner, lots of pedestrians and buses. Thus not the quietest place, in addition, there is a very popular lounge/bar on the ground level. Weekends can be "exciting" until closing time of 1:30am. It is very good though if you are the outgoing and social type.
2. There is no elevator as it is a older building, 2 story walkup.
3. Parking is available for a approx fee of $10-$15/night in a private garage across the street. You will need to retrieve the parking pass from the apartment to gain access to the garage.Please notify in advance if you would like to have parking arranged.
Amazing location and awesome apartment.
Silvio made everything easy and was very quick to respond for anything I needed. I would definitely stay there again, absolutely GREAT location, right in the heart of everything!!
Silvio was very responsive and accommodating. Absolutely perfect location and good space. Couldn't get the coffee maker to work (may have been me, but I own one like it), but he was apologetic and said he would check it out. Shouldn't be a problem in the future. Also, buses do start early in the morning right below the space, so if you are out late the night before, be prepared.
Location was great, right above a busy bar/restaurant, close to the Santa Monica Place Mall and various restaurants.
There is no elevator in the building, so you have to drag all your luggage up the stairs with you but its only on the third floor so its not far to go.
The apartment is positioned right on the busy street corner though, and any and all sounds coming from traffic, traffic lights, passers by, or the busy restaurant downstairs are very apparent. Sleeping with the windows open are not a real option if you are a light sleeper.
The whole place could definitely use some cosmetic help, there were dents and scratches everywhere on the walls, it was pretty dusty all over, but definitely a great place for the price.
Silvio's place was perfect and just as described. Amazing location in Santa Monica and very clean spacious with everything you need. Highly recommend.
The ubication is perfect for someone that what to be close to the beach the shopping and the best place to dinner all by walk. is noise because you are beside the ocean st. where everything happens, so!. Is exactly like you see in the pictures, no dark courtain but the views makes you forgive that. The apparment is always clean. Silvio contact you instantly when you need him.
Is a great place for young couples and youth i don´t recomend it to older people ( large escaleitor without elevaitor) and is not a place to go rest looking for silence.
Great little studio apartment right on the beach. We booked this place last minute as our last night of a long weekend and Silvio was super accommodating and communicative. The apartment is well appointed and really comfortable. The area surrounding it is a pretty busy tourist area - but this building has a very secure / private feeling to it nonetheless. It is situated right in the middle of the action, so you're going to hear the action, it's nothing out of the ordinary but if you're not used to city noise it take a second to get used to. The area does seem to shut down at a pretty reasonable time however and by the time we went to sleep all we could really hear were the waves crashing in the ocean. When we arrived the place was very clean and ready to go. While we didn't have the opportunity to meet Silvio personally he was very responsive to all messages and helped us out with finding inexpensive secure parking ($20) and getting us in & out of the building. Overall a great experience and you can't beat the location if you want to be in the middle of the action.
Fantastic place to stay
After booking we sent a couple messages to confirm parking as the listing said. We didn't get a response, a coupe days before leaving we sent another and heard nothing. Finally the day before we left we sent one more, silvio finally sent back a text saying I'll text you the details in the morning. When we arrived in the afternoon there was still nothing. We texted him one last time to tell him that we were left stranded, only then did he get back to us. Upon arriving the room was filthy with the bed slept in and there was excrement in the toilet. Only then did silvio start responding to us, at this point he was very accommodating and texted us non stop. He had the room cleaned but we had to wait over an hour. On the plus side the location is great. The parking was double what was listed costing us an extra $10 per day.
Its a nice place and a good size room and has everything you would require. Can see the beach from the window and its a pretty happening area close to cool bars and shops.
I knew coming hear this place was going to have noise, however on a friday or saturday night expect it to sound like the party is actually in your room from about 10pm till 2am.
Even though checkout was listed as flexible it wasn't actually that flexible at all.
My checkin wasn't that smooth and could been made smoother by the host be sending me checkin details earlier (my phone playing up was partly the issue).
I asked before booking if i could store my bags till later which Silvio replied this wouldn't be an issue.
What he forgot to mention is that what he meant by this is that i could store my bags with the hotel next door which cost me $20.
