Thumbs up to this super convenient, comfortable and beautiful place. I spent a few days here on a recent business trip, walked everywhere and slept solid each night. Easy in and out and unit just as described. I'll be back.
Great spot! Place was clean and fully stocked with every need imaginable (i.e. Iron and ironing board, hair dryer, stocked kitchen utensils). Felt like I was right at home. It was comfortable and close to the beach & Main Street with restaurants and bars. Would love to stay here again when I'm back in town!
The apartment is in a great location close to the beach and was just as described on the site. It was a big advantage having a parking permit.
Good place. Great neighborhood. Everything was as described and Lisa was great host. Cannot beat the convenience to all that Santa Monica and Venice have to offer. Having access to a bike was plus!
We had a wonderful stay at Lisa's house. The apartment was charming and loved the retro feel. The space was perfect for our Easter visit with our daughter. We loved the yard and having the grill to cook dinners. The proximity to the beach and Main street was perfect. We also ran the Easter Fun 5K on Easter morning and not having to drive down and find a place to part was awesome. Thanks Lisa! We will definitely try to book again on our next visit.
The neighbor hood is lovely, safe and has plenty of restaurants, bars and coffee shops all within walking distance. The best thing about this property is the LOCATION. In the listing it states there are bikes for guests use. I beg to differ...They were covered in cobwebs and dirty, tires were flat and chains were rusted. We ended up taking them down to Petes' (bike rental on beach) and asking the guys to fill the tires and oil the chains (employees are super cool). One bike would switch gears as you peddled --really unsafe and annoying. The gears were locked so you couldn't adjust them at all. I say remove the use of bikes...it's false advertising. We are resourceful and worked out the situation, others might not be so accommodating or patient.
We had great visit at Lisa's apartment. It was wonderfully decorated in 1950-60's decor. Everything you would need was provided. Bed was comfortable. The backyard was very nice to sit and relax. Close to Farmer Market and Ocean. We would definitely stay again. Description provided was accurate, but apartment was better.
