Charming ocean view studio right across the beach. Basic amenities, great PRICE for location. Walk to everything you need to.... and then there is the breathtaking view.... priceless. Take into consideration the considerable noise on weekends

Furnished ocean view studio available for rent. Fully furnished studio comes equipped with a kitchenette, 42" plasma, queen size bed. Full size bathroom with granite counters and great water pressure! Studio is approximately 450 sq/feet. Kitchenette is fucntional with stove, oven and mini fridge. Take advantage of the local farmers market and enjoy local organic artisnal products. This unit is meant to be for the budget conscience traveler, that is why the price is so low compared to other listings in the area, so please take that into consideration, if you are looking for location and budget, this is it, if you want more luxury and quiet retreat, then I wouldn't recommend.
Extremely great location, right on Ocean Ave, enjoy all the local amenities that Santa Monica has to offer! Walk to all the downtown venues, bars, dining, shops, etc...
Monthly rate includes utilities, cable, and internet.
Parking is available for a separate charge of $20/night. In addition, please take into consideration the following:
1. Due to its location, it is quite noisy, in addition, there is music from the lounge below to about approx 1:30am on thursday, friday, and saturday. IT IS VERY NOISY ON WEEKEND NIGHTS FROM THE BAR.
2. Since it is an older building, there is no elevator, but a walkup. However, this unit is on the 2nd floor, so not as daunting.
3. If you are an active, outgoing person who likes to explore the wonderful things Santa Monica has to offer, this is an ideal rental! Bike rentals are highly encouraged, best way to get around Santa Monica!
Interaction with Guests
Minimal interaction with guests. Prefer to respect privacy. We are available should you have any questions but for the most part I prefer to keep interaction to a minimum.
Amazing neighborhood. Right in the heart of everything, walk to the beach, shops, pier, etc.

Have fun...your by the beach!
Apartment was just as it was described with a gorgeous view. Right in a convenient location for going around Santa Monica. All the amenities necessary. Silvio provided all information necessary to check in and out in a timely fashion. Had trouble with getting the tv to work, but it didn't really matter! Great place to stay if you are coming a going a lot, and getting back later in the evening.
We went during the week and the noisy over the night wasn't too annoying. The location is awesome! The curtains let the sun light get through during the mornings but that is our only complain. I'd recommend it to any one who goes to Los Angeles.
Silivo was an excellent host!! We had all of the instructions we needed by arrival time to get in and feel right at home. Everything is just as described and the location is really unbeatable. Comfortable, welcoming, the perfect place to stay if you really want to full right on the beach experience. Stones throw away from the 3rd St. Promenade, the beach, and great restaurants. I highly recommend!
We checked in a little later, around 8pm so we missed Silvio on his way out. We corresponded through text just fine though. The place was the same as the listing, not overly nice, maybe even shabby to some, but it was comfortable to us and the location couldn't have been better! Literally steps away from everything. The TV didn't work, which was a slight bummer since we wanted to watch a movie our first night after working. The kitchen was stocked with tea and coffee, and he even had a bowl of ice ready for us in the mini freezer which I thought was very nice :). The music below got pretty loud Saturday night, but we were awake for awhile so it didn't bother us too much. You can hear people coming and leaving outside your door pretty clearly, but it wasn't too bothersome to us. Friendly tip: when opening the front entrance door, push a little first THEN pull! I got stuck outside the first time until someone opened the door for me, and the second time a nice cleaning lady taught me how to open it.
Silvio was a great host. Check in was easy, the room was clean with a great location. Plenty of natural light and a comfy bed. Parking our car was made easy thanks to Silvo as well! Would recommend this to family and friends.
The room was a perfect location right near the Santa Monica Pier. Great area for food, drinks, (email hidden) Promenade. Though I didn't meet Silvio in person, he was helpful and answered my questions right away. I was a little surprised as to the amenities of the room/building. From the pictures, I thought it would be a little more modern. Also cable TV was advertised. While there was a TV, it did not work. Most people complain about the noise from the bars downstairs. As we stayed on a Thursday and Friday, we were out late enough for that not to be a problem. Overall, I think Silvio was a good host, and would work with him again.
