About this listing
Charming ocean view studio right across from the beach. This location can not be beat and is unbelievable for the price!

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.

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.
The location of the property was fantastic for us, I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to be right in the middle of the action who doesn't mind going without a few luxuries - we were in apartment 204. The music from the bar downstairs, traffic & people on the streets around is very loud (usually settled around 2am - noting we were there from Sunday till Wednesday night) and also the walls are very thin so we could hear the apartment next doors' TV going till about 1am but with a simple knock on the wall they turned it down which was great. We had ear plugs and eye masks that helped and also as the TV didn't work so we watched some movies on our phone with our noise canceling headphones to get some peace. Unfortunately upon contacting Silvio twice to ask about the television and stovetop not working, I didn't get a reply and still haven't to date which I felt is really disappointing as he'd managed to reply to my messages earlier in the week without any issues. The wifi was very reliable and there's free wifi pretty much all around the central part of Santa Monica so that was very useful.
I really want to leave good feedback because Silvio was nice however the unit that I stayed in was NOT acceptable.
First of all there is NO air conditioning. I am from the Midwest. I just assumed the unit would be air conditioned. Not having a/c wouldn't have been so bad had I been able to open windows or if there was a fan. It was at least 85 degrees in the unit when I arrived. Without being able to open the windows it was just unbearable. It was just hot dense air and too hot to sleep in for sure. Secondly the unit that I was given was NOT the unit in the photos. The blinds in my unit were dirty and broken and white. Not brown. Also, the bathroom shower/tub was just disgusting. There was a black ring of mold around the tub that they had clearly tried to disguise with a layer of caulk. But it was still visible. There were also dead bugs and hair in the shower. The shower also had a cracked tile that needed to be replaced because the cracks were filling up with mold and again they tried to disguise with caulk.
The noise also is very loud however Silvio did warn me about that. I could have lived with the noise if there had been a/c and the unit was clean. Overall I feel like I used to feel with I went on (website hidden) dates and the person looked nothing like their photo. Very, very disappointing. I would definitely not stay at this place again and being my very 1st Airbnb experience I doubt I ever use this service again.
We stayed at this apartment for 5 days. It is perfectly situated next to the beach. Expect the minimum, use it for sleeping only. Unfortunately, the TV didn't work. We didn't get to meet Silvio, but he replied quick after questions from us via the app.
Very accommodating host. The room was as described and in a fantastic location!
The studio style room is great for a couple people wanting to have some fun and a popular area of Santa Monica. Ocean views. The guy running the place was very nice and accommodating. Recommended!
Fantastic location right next to the beach and pier! Highly recommended for those looking for quick access to shops, bars and beach etc. bike rental is just a 5 min walk away!
Such a great location. The place was really center of the Santa Monica. Near the beach, near the pier, near the bars and restaurants. Parking is also easy. The room was as decribed in the listing and pictures. There was a noise because of the bars which Silvio written on the list but it was not a problem for us. Great experience overall. I definitely recommended Silvio's place to stay.
