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!
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!
I had a nice stay it was very quiet which I liked. Everything is close if you don't have a car. It's your own little place with a good size kitchen it has all you need. I would stay again. It's right of Wilshire which takes you straight to the beach........Thanks Karen I enjoyed the stay...............
My second time staying at Karen's place. Karen is so nice and helpful! She even left some homemade banana bread in the kitchen. What I love is that you can walk from the apartment to nearby restaurants, markets, etc. And I got a lot of work done sitting at the little kitchen table with my laptop. A great, low-key, and seamless experience. Thanks, Karen!
this is a clean, cosy studio even good for two staying. Karen was so kind to leave muffins on the door. I had an issue with shower water drain which was fixed the next day. Excellent response. The summary is: I can come back and stay at this place. Thank You Karen.
