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!
Place in a great location, very clean and exactly as described in the photos. Scott was always very attentive. Great bed and excellent bathroom. Access to very quiet and secure building. Garage for easy access. When certainly return to Santa Monica I will stay at this location.
Scott was very responsive and professional. The apartment is well cared for, plenty of space and lots of amenities.
The location itself was perfect...close enough to everything yet not in the noisy part of the town.
