Best View-Across Santa Monica PIER!

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Ocean Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90401, United States

The Space

Nothing like this unit in Santa Monica, STEPS FROM THE PIER. One block from Bloomingdales and just 2 blocks from the famous 3rd Street Promendade and luxurious Santa Monica Place Mall. Steps to Shore Hotel, as well as countless other restaurants, including the famous Ivy at the Shore, a constant celebrity driven spot.

2 Full Bedrooms with pullout couch in living room.

Fully furnished. 2 bedroom, 2 full baths, with HD flat screen televisions in each bedroom, as well as living room. All linens and kitchenware included.

Full kitchen with dishwasher, stove, oven, and fridge. 2 subterranean parking spaces included, as well as free Wifi.

Wrap around balcony facing the ocean from living room that stretches through the entire apartment. Each bedroom also has large balcony facing the ocean. You can not find anything like this in Santa Monica. It is literally on the corner across from the Pier with breathtaking views. The photos do not do it justice. Also, the entire unit has been upgraded to espresso hardwood flooring!

I typically prefer a minimum of 2 nights. Hope you visit soon.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The location can't be beat! Right in the heart of things. Plenty of restaurants close by. The Santa Monica Pier is right across the street. 3rd Street Promenade a few blocks away. Steven was quick to respond and easy to work with.
    New and more towels and bedding + a deep cleaning would take this apartment from a 4 star to 4 1/2 - 5 star rating.

  • The apartment is in the best location of Santa Monica with a great view of the pier and the beach. The Big Bus Tour has a stop in front of the apartment and 3rd St Promenade is only a couple of streets away. Also, there are lots of restaurants nearby. Many buses pass by that can take you to almost any point in LA if you don't have a car, but if you do, two parking places are available in the same building.
    The apartment is very nice, rooms are very comfortable and there is a big balcony that can be accessed from all the rooms.
    Communication with Steven was very good and he answered to every email in the same day. Luis who works in the building handled us the keys on our arrival. I must say he was also very kind and explained us everything we needed to know about the laundry room, shops in the area, etc.
    The only negative thing I could say is that if you are planning to cook and eat in the apartment, the kitchen might not have all the cutlery you need. But still, I must say the place is 100% recomendable and with no doubt we would choose it again in a next visit to Santa Monica. We all enjoyed the apartment.

  • The beautiful and in-great-condition apartment was clean, accessible, quite spacious and comfortable - we appreciated all amenities! (It was well-stocked and we were able to find towels and utensils right away). A printed sheet with directions/instructions for our stay was very helpful.
    The location was fantastic - next to great restaurants and a short walk from Third Street Promenade and the BEST view of the ocean and the Santa Monica Pier. SUPER comfy beds! Can't wait to visit again!

  • Great location and good sized units with comfortable beds and plenty of space. Lots of restaurants and nightlife within a few blocks.

  • We had a great time in Santa Monica at Steven's apartment. Had all the amenities (except washing machine), however our 6 night stay did not maybe warrant the washing machine. Apartment was so convenient to restaruants, Pier and great fashion shopping. Beds were comfortable and even though we were on the main esplanade, we had no traffic noise. Great say, would recommend this apartment. Karon, China.

  • First time using AirBnB and was very pleased with the overall experience. Steven was great to follow up with instructions on checking in and out. The apartment location is AMAZING and views are terrific. It was spotless when I got there and was nicer than the pictures do it justice.

    Another great benefit that I wasn't expecting is due to the proximity to the pier there was a constant line of cabs directly outside the front door so that made me not having a car absolutely painless.

  • Myself and 3 children stayed in late January.
    Location cannot be beat- right on beach and fantastic view from balcony. Rooms and living area quite roomy.
    Owner and building guy were great- no problems getting in and everything there as required.
    Our home flight was at night and owner helpful in terms of letting is leave our luggage etc for the day (this was a great help).
    Overall I would highly recommend- compared to hotels just down the road (Shore Hotel) this place cannot be beat.

  • The unit is in a nice location in Santa Monica. Conveniently located by the beach, shopping and other attractions. The view is gorgeous. However we did come across a few difficulties and inconveniences during our stay.

    We experienced the most inconvenience and lack of professionalism from the building manager. Even when we called him numerous times and notified him about our arrival time, he never showed up to the front to let us in. My family and I, including our 8 month old was waiting outside for over 45min in the cold trying to contact him to let us in. He never responded and we ended up having to drive to our next engagement since we could not wait any longer. After several contacts to the owner directly, and 5hrs later, we finally got a response from the building manager saying that "his phone battery had died" with no apology from the building manager himself. However I have to note that the owner was very apologetic. What made it worse though was that the building manager basically called to ask how far we were to arrive with a comment of "it's getting late, I have to work tomorrow". I was absolutely shocked to hear this when he was the one that never showed up to our original check in time and inconveniencing us!

    So by the time we arrived it was late and the building manager neglected to address any issues including the details of our unit. We had a difficult time opening our door as well since I believe the copied keys do not work as well as the original key.

    We were promised 2 parking spots but every time we returned from our days outing, there was somebody else parked in our spot. Which completely inconvenienced us since we had no idea where else we can park without getting a ticket.

    Also the unit itself was decent but noticed that the floor was sticky when we arrived. It appears that whoever cleans it between tenants doesn't do a great job.

    Overall we had a terrible start and the rest didn't quite exceed our expectations to recover from our initial bad experience. The only positive that I have for this is the location and the view. The building management I believe is the main issue that we came across and ruined our whole experience.

  • The location of this apartment is fantastic, as are the views. Across the road from Santa Monica pier and the beach, around the corner from 3rd street promenade and all the wonderful shopping. We found the building manager was easy to contact on our arrival and had no further need to contact him over our 7 day stay. Our family of five was easily accommodated and would definitely go back again.
