Location is amazing for everything downtown Santa Monica. We are literally surrounded by the promenade and all bars and restaurants. Bungalows Bar 2 blocks away, my favorite bar. I am 2 blocks from Santa Monica pier and can see the Santa monica ferris wheel from all our windows. This scenic ocean picture is from our kitchen view which also extends from the bedroom and bathroom views.

2 blocks from the largest outdoor shopping mall, called the Promenade, which can be seen from our building easily or on the rooftop.

Bus stop right outside in front that can take you to LAX or anywhere in LA. Major train system coming soon! They are building it right now so there is construction around the city. Should be done soon!
Parking for building available with additional $20/day add on. Parking in Santa Monica is not easy or cheap! (website hidden) can help you find more parking if needed.
1 bike available for you with lock and key. See photos for bike picture.

This building is one of the oldest buildings in Santa Monica built in the 1920's and used to be a hotel. Its life is limited as they are tearing it down and building a massive skyscraper by architect, Frank Gehry.

You can also go onto the roof top for a even better view of the sunset and Ocean. Or go to the Shangra-la hotel Bar next door and enjoy drinks while socializing.

Recommendations below from past guests are from past months when the apartment was shared.
It is currently being rented as a fully private rental. Not shared. Please refrain from contacting me about shared living. Thank you!

If booking, please remember this not a hotel and is a different stay experience from a hotel. Sometimes I have guests that do not respect the space and use it as if a hotel, leaving it a mess or breaking things. I understand everyone is accustom to different living habits, but please do consider this is someone's home and the energy and space is to be respected. If you are renting for someone else, please be aware of this and inform of house rules or maybe do not book. Thank you in advance!

  • The place is in a great location, right on the beach as described. Considering I was sharing the living room with other people the stay went very well. The roommates were very friendly and respectful, ideal really for this situation.

    November 2012
  • The reservation was canceled 12 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

    October 2013
  • Comfortable place in literally the best possible location in Santa Monica, right on the beach and the ocean breeze greets you in the morning. Shannon accommodated me on short notice booking, key was waiting for me at the apartment along with a bottle of wine, and check out was easy as well. Limited seating and eating space available in the apartment was the only minor downside

    October 2013
  • Sharron was a great host making sure that the place was 100% ready for me when I arrived! Beautiful view of the ocean and enough local shops that you can try something different for every meal. Highly recommend!

    July 2013
  • Fantastic host. Beautiful view. Amazing location. Just don't forget to keep your key on you - the doors lock automatically. One thing she doen't mention in the post is that she has a vitamix and a dehydrator and is blocks away from one of the best farmer's markets in LA. It's a great place to be if you eat consciously and need some tools to work with. She's on it with communication over email and was away on vacation for the majority of my stay but was all over everything on email.

    February 2013
  • I had a great fun and funky experience at this "crash pad." Sharron was so much fun to talk to and a real sweet person, and the place is in a top location. It is truly a place to just come in to late and leave early, for the right price. No frills, but again, a fantastic location in LA. Best for the young traveller who wants to take advantage of the fabulous restaurant and night light in this world class beach community. It is shared room, but very large and privacy is not an issue.

About
I live in Santa Monica on the beach. I do a lot of yoga, but love all sports, as long as I can be active and outdoors. I am a swimwear and yogawear designer and teach Bikram hot yoga. Currently taking more teacher trainer courses in yoga in Santa Monica and Mexico and Costa Rica (where my father lives). I know of many homes for rent in CR. I love cooking esp. the healthy stuff. I have a new passion for SUPing and can't wait to be on the water. Rollerblading is a frequent pastime for me and Santa Monica has some the best rollerblading paths in the nation!
