About this listing
Charming ocean view studio right across from the beach. This location can not be beat and is unbelievable for the price!
Please Note: This unit is located directly above a bar/lounge that is extremely noisy, especially on the weekends.
This unit is in a historic building and has all of the "character" of an older complex. IT IS A BUDGET ACCOMMODATION. Please read the entire listing before booking.
On the corner of Ocean and Broadway you can't get any closer to the beach, bars, and fabulous restaurants of Santa Monica. The views are spectacular from every angle.

Two Queen size beds in one open floor plan. Sleeps up to 4 guests.

Have a blast, your by the beach and in the middle of one of the best beach cities in the world!
Interaction with Guests
As a host, I prefer to give guests space and privacy. There is minimal interaction but I am available should you have any questions or need help with anything.
Neighborhood is amazing. Right on the corner of Ocean and Broadway. Views of the Santa Monica pier. Walk to the beach, shops, promenade, bars. Everything is within walking distance!!
Very convenient access to public transit. Also - download uber if you haven't, probably the best mode to transport.

Silvio could not have been a better host. This was our first time booking through airbnb and Silvio was very patient and helpful throghout the entire process. The apartment is exactly as described, no complaints what so ever!
The room was as described in the listing and other reviews. Great views of the pier and beach, awesome location, accommodating parking, overall a comfortable stay. There is no A/C however there is a nice cool breeze once you open the windows. The bar downstairs is loud but plays good music. Spotty wifi and cable in room. Overall a good stay. Would recommend to others and will return if in the Santa Monica area.
This is a cool place if you're in Santa Monica to party with a couple friends and you don't have anything of value and you're going offline. The location is right in the center of things. Right out the window, you can see the Santa Monica Pier and it's super close to great restaurants. You can hear and see all the nightlife, which didn't bother me one bit because I expected that. When you walk into the building though, you understand why it's a "budget accommodation" though even at $365/night. It's a bit of a dorm situation, and really impersonal but it was clean and had the basics.
There were some hiccups with checkin, missing keys, no instructions for TV, and with the Wifi not connecting. It was harder than usual to get a response from the host: 1 airbnb message (unanswered), 2 8AM PT voicemails (unanswered), and another email before I got a response. It looks nice but things are a bit worn and there are no instructions for anything, which is a bit impersonal and unlike many other Airbnb experiences I've had. The kicker was when the internet wouldn't connect (checked the WiFi code multiple times), so I just went to the Shore Hotel.
Within minutes, I realized that maybe for this trip I should've went old school and got a king suite at the Doubletree for $57 more. I didn't do my research and let my bias toward living like a local and encouraging the sharing economy sway me. It's ok. You can't always pick winners
This unit is good for couple friends crashing near the beach with no car. If that's what you're looking for, then you'll be okay and you'll like the location. For me, especially as a solo female traveler, I think reliable internet, a bit more privacy, a sense of a more present host to help with problems and not worrying about people just walking into the building after me or pushing in after me at the entrance would have been better. For the $365/night cost and because it's as impersonal as a hotel, I'm sad to say a hotel might've been more relaxing. I hope my experience was an exception because it's cool spot that could be leveraged a bit better.
The apartment is beautiful and the location is great. It's definitely noisy, but not an issue if you bring ear plugs. I really enjoyed staying here.
Superb location literally steps from the beach with a nice view. Excellent quality and variety of cuisine conveniently located. Slyvio was very helpful from the start of the booking until check out. I recommend this apartment.
Great basic apartment in a great location - exactly what we needed. Quite loud so as mentioned in the description suitable for young travellers (which we are). Checking in difficult without phone access however was sorted quickly, and we were very happy with the accommodation. Thanks Silvio.
