Great studio apartment about 45 min min walk from the pier. It's a great apartment but be aware it's next to the Santa Monica airport and you can hear the plane's taking off. The hosts Dawn and Ron are very helpful and informative

We had two great nights at Dawn's place. Everything was exactly as described and we would stay again if in the area! Thanks Dawn!

This being our first Airbnb experience we had some curiosity about how it would turn out. Well, I'm happy to report that everything about our stay was positive. From communication at all stages to ease of arrival and checking in we always found it to be easy. The cottage was spotless and very clean and comfortable. The backyard with water feature was charming. Loved the area location too. We'll definitely return.

The cottage was a perfect location to the beach and downtown. We enjoyed the quiet backyard in the evenings. The next door neighbor was a delight and we actually hugged each other before we left the last day! My only tip is if it's warm, bring a cooler with ice. There is a refrigerator but not a freezer/ice machine. We hope to come back soon!

Probably the best airBnb we've used so far! The bungalow is really nice and also has a little garden you can sit in. The neighborhood is a really picturesque place straight from an American sitcom. Plenty of places to eat on ocean park boulevard 10 minutes walk away. 10-15 minutes and $6 in Uber will take you to Venice/Santa Monica beach. Dawn had everything set up for us when we arrived. You could tell she put a lot of effort into the guidebooks (both the online and physical copies.) So actually we always had everything we needed. However, Dawn always replied to our messages instantly and there were two guys in the main house if we had any emergencies. All in all, fantastic place and host and would use again if we returned to LA.
