Karen is an excellent host. The neighborhood was quiet and friendly. Walking distance to all restaurants and shopping. She dropped cookies by on my first day and made sure that I had all that I needed. I would come back here again and again.
Karen was very friendly and helpful to the particulars of our situation. She even left a small loaf of homemade carrot bread. The apartment was clean and as represented in the pictures. The unit does not have air conditioning, which was unfortunate as there was a bit of a heat wave while we were there. BUT, the cool evening breeze was sufficient to lose the heat of daytime and make for easy sleeping at night. The neighborhood is quiet and residential and there is off-street parking by the unit.
Karen greeted me with a smile at the apt. and showed me around. The unit was SO lovely, clean and comfortable. A bowl of fresh fruit and snacks was waiting for me in the kitchen. The unit is part of a lovely private enclave and very quiet. There was a parking spot for me when I rented a car, which made it so easy. I would love to return and rent this room or one of the 1 bedrooms in the future!
This is a really nice apartment, it's just like the photos. Karen and David are very charming and responsive hosts. Good location, super quiet.
But the sofa/futon is a bit of a nightmare if you are trying to convert it. I would stay with them again, though.
Karen was a lovely host who welcome me super well for my first stay in LA. She was super quick in replying. The studio was very well located in Santa Monica. There were all necessary equipments to make it very well easy to cook something and feel at home. There was also a parking to accommodate which was perfect. I would definitely recommend to go there!
Santa Monica Apt was as advertised. Clean, at great location, close to Bristol Farms, and good restaurants. Karen was awesome do deal with. Very professional and quick to respond to any of our needs. I would highly suggest to anyone looking for apt to stay.
Wow, what an amazing experience. I had never used AirBnb before and wasn't sure what to expect.
Karen was by far the best host I could have ever had. I had the pleasure of meeting her to collect the keys and we crossed paths a few times...she even left me some amazing chocolate cookies one day which were incredibly tasty!
The bed was comfortable...I am a musician and spend a lot of time in hotels...this was by far high up on my list for comfort.
The kitchen was well equipped, and I had fun cooking my meals there. It had everything I needed and the fridge was very nice and cold, perfect for a chilled beer!
I had the pleasure of meeting the neighbours a few times and they were all very friendly.
I stayed for two weeks and didn't want to leave. I struggled after my first week as I ran out of clothes but there is a laundromat a short walk away as well as a liquor store and a Whole Foods for groceries. It's a cheap taxi ride to the busy area of Santa Monica...about $5 and about $15 to West Hollywood in an Uber...its a great location. The neighbourhood is beautiful and its a nice evening walk if you walk out the property and turn right.
When I turned up the TV was brand new with a new cable box but I didn't use it once, it was always nice to sit with the front door open and read a book or play guitar.
Definitely coming back to stay when I'm next in town...I only wish I had booked it for longer! The place I'm currently staying in does not compare...not even close!
Thank you so much Karen!
