Charming ocean view 1bed/1bath across from the beach. This location can not be beat and is unbelievable for the price!
Please Note: This unit is located directly above a bar/lounge that is extremely noisy, especially on the weekends.
This unit is in a historic building and has all of the "character" of an older complex. IT IS A BUDGET ACCOMMODATION. Please read the entire listing before booking.
On the corner of Ocean and Broadway you can't get any closer to the beach, bars, and fabulous restaurants of Santa Monica. The views are spectacular from every angle.
Large 42" TV with access to hundreds of cable TV station and High Speed WIFI internet.
One Queen size beds in one open floor plan. Sleeps up to 3 guests.
Small kitchenette with coffee maker, microwave small stove, and mini fridge.
Do not underestimate the noise especially on weekends. This place is best for young people that want to join the action! This in quietest unit in the building.
There is no elevator to the second floor so do be able and willing to take your bags up the stairs.
There is no parking included. Parking is available for $20/night. Please let me know if you would like me to arrange parking for your arrival.
Have a blast, your by the beach and in the middle of one of the best beach cities in the world!
Interaction with Guests
As a host, I prefer to give guests space and privacy. There is minimal interaction but I am available should you have any questions or need help with anything.
Neighborhood is amazing. Right on the corner of Ocean and Broadway. Views of the Santa Monica Pier. Walk to the beach, shops, promenade, bars. Everything is within walking distance!!
Very convenient access to public transit. Also - download uber if you haven't, probably the best mode to transport.
1.Your at the beach, have a good time!
2. Dont visit Santa Monica and be couped up in the apartment, you could have done that at home, with amazing scenery and bustling vibrant energy, seize the day - Carpe Diem!
The place was great and the location can't get any better. Bed was comfortable too!! I would recommend.
Overall a great place to stay as the location cannot be beaten!
The apartment was clean and neat however a lot of the lights didn't work which was quite strange. It didn't bother us hugely as we were not in the apartment a great deal however we did think there was a lack of attention to detail there.
Although the listing stated the apartment was very noisy because of the bar below, we were pleasantly surprised with how little we could hear. With the windows closed we could only hear the dull beats of music and no street noise (yelling etc) at all. Think the bar closes at 2am anyway so it doesn't go on all night.
Did have a few minor issues however which I feel should be mentioned.
The listing stated that there was a washer/dryer (now updated I notice) which there wasn't. Not in the apartment or in the apartment building at all. When I queried this I got a strange response saying that there would be an apartment free somewhere (no address given) for 1hour the following day where we could do laundry. Didn't seem very professional to me nor was it a useful solution as no timeframe was given and we were heading out for most of the next day anyway. A simple apology for the mistake and/or an offer of a discount or reimbursement for the laundry would have been more appropriate we thought.
There was also some confusion about the check in/out times on the listing which made the last day a little rushed.
Communication with the host was always fast however we felt that the responses were rushed and he often did not actually answer our question properly or at all which was frustrating.
Overall a good experience but my advice to anyone looking to book would be to double check any information on the listing that is particularly important to you (ie. Amenities available, check in/out times) before booking or while you can still cancel the reservation.
Great listing and Silvio was super great to deal with. Super convenient location to all great things in Santa Monica - what more could you want!? I would definitely recommend and stay here again.
Silvio is great, location is great! This was the second time I stayed here, Silvio makes everything so easy. Thanks again!!
Place was as expected. Clean, furnished, and AMAZING location. Right across the street from the pier. Silvio was really easy to deal with and quick to respond to my questions.
I had a great experience. Thanks Silvio!
Silvio has a great place in Santa Monica, right on the beach and a perfect location for bars, restaurants, shops, and of course the beach!
Access was easy and Silvio met a friend of mine who arrived early. The only thing we had difficulty with was arranging parking,but managed to get a spot in a garage just down the street on Broadway for $14 per night.
I'd love to stay here again.
