What a disappointment! This apartment was dirty(dirty kitchen and bathroom floors,dirty kitchen countertop and small appliances, very dusty, filthy rug), stopped up sink, blown out bulbs in bathroom and kitchen, lack of fresh linens on bed. In addition, there were clothes in the dryer and dirty clothes in the washer. The host was contacted upon arrival and concerns were discussed. We were assured that problems would be taken care of and that we would be compensated for the lack of cleanliness. NOTHING was taken care of and further contact resulted in a lack of response from the host. The neighborhood was fine and the parking was very convenient. It is quite unfortunate that this host chose to be irresponsible and not respond. We felt "stuck" .......just unfortunate.......
Great location! Great apt layout! Great patio! A little confusion after a long trip for access to the apt - but we eventually worked it out.
Scott had arranged everything prior to our arrival.
He had us check in seamlessly and was available at all times, although we only had a few questions.
The neighborhood is tremendous in the middle of Santa Monica.
Scott' s description of the apartment is accurate and we dealt with him before for another rental.
The listing was not accurate in our view and we were very disappointed and shocked at the condition of the apartment. It was very worn and in need of refreshing and maintainance. Many lights not working and bathroom extractor fan, It was ripped and dirty with stains on the carpet, full ashtray on the balcony, very dirty uncleaned BBQ and dusty blinds. We are very pleased to be given full refund for the cleaning fee that the host was not willing to discuss and accept problems raised. Other big issue was a single pull out/fold out bed. It's a child's camp style bed and should not be listed as sleeps 3, we assumed sleeping 3 adults as it didn't state otherwise. Location was very good and the parking provided. The host was friendly and efficient until we raised our concerns and had to resort to involving airbnb resolution which helped us. Also the host made a false accusation against us and told airbnb that we broke his sink, which was totally untrue and was ignored by airbnb and resolved on our behalf.
Host made check in very easy, everything was pretty much exactly as described, however when I arrived the bed was unmade and the towels were wet and dirty. As soon as I let Scott know, he immediately offered to return the cleaning fee and was completely apologetic. In the end I just did some laundry and it wasn't a big deal at all. His place is fantastic, but what's really incredible is the location. It's amazing. You can walk to so many different bars and restaurants, the pier, the promenade, etc. I just wish I had more than one night to explore! Parking was super easy and convenient as well for people who are bringing a car.
Everything about the apartment was great, though the location in the heart of Santa Monica was particularly valuable to me with its excellent food, coffee, and the beach all within a very short walk. Scott, the host, was most kind, and this was as seamless of an airbnb experience as I've had. His forethought and descriptiveness in the arrival instructions made locating and settling in a breeze. Inside, the space was very comfortable and I'll certainly look to stay here again on the next trip to town. I highly recommend this listing!
I completely enjoyed my stay and would recommend for others to stay! Great location in the heart of Santa Monica. No matter if you're traveling in from another country or state or locally and just need a change. Enjoy!!..

About the Host, Scott
I'm 33, and year ago I decided to hang up the security of a corporate job and travel the world... 18 months later I'm still traveling. To help me pay for my adventures I've listed my Santa Monica apartment on Airbnb.
I'm a 4th generation native to Los Angeles and happy to help you see the great parts of LA that aren't in the Guidebooks.
I look forward to connecting with people traveling to Santa Monica and aim to make each guest experience this beautiful place like a local.
Thanks for checking out my place and I hope to talk with you soon!
