Our Place is about 15-20 minutes from LAX. A cab from there will run about $50 with tip. Other transportation can be arranged at the airport including shuttle vans and public bus transportation.
Our street is in between the two main bus routes in Santa Monica. That means that, at any given time, you shouldn’t need to wait more than 5 minutes for a bus that will take you anywhere you want to go in LA. We take the bus all the time to restaurants, bars, and down to the water--they’re all clean and safe.

Our street has bike lanes that will take you straight down to the Promenade, Santa Monica Pier, and the beach. All of which will take no more than 7 minutes from our apt. We encourage you to bring a bike so you can truly experience all the nooks and crannies that Santa Monica has to offer. There’s a place to lock your bike in a safe place off the street.
You’ll find a lot of people walking in our neighborhood because it’s safe and there are so many great places to get food and drink around us--whoever said you have to drive everywhere in LA never lived on our block :)
We’re young newlyweds that have been living in this apartment for the past five years. We met in college at UC Berkeley and then each went on to grad school at UCLA and USC, but we’re bear fans through and through :) We’(email hidden)ly couple, usually out on some adventure on the weekends and working during the week. We have a home office in a separate section of the apartment that we use during the week but you’d never know we were there. We’re happy to be there for any questions you may have or recommendations for places to visit during your stay.

We had a great time staying with Kerry! Hardly saw her though to be honest. When were working during the day, Kerry was super accommodating and let us work at her kitchen table. A great central location to Santa Monica. Some really great cafes, bars and restaurants in walking distance, too!
My boyfriend and I spent 5 nights at Kerry's home. Everything was great. We had a lot privacy and she was very kind with us. The neighborhood is awesome, with a lot of options to eat, etc. We didn't have problem to find parking space and permission card was super usefull. We recomend the place!
Kerry's place was ideal for our stay in Los Angeles. The location couldn't have been better - we were a walk away from restaurants, supermarkets and the beach - it was perfect. The street was in a lovely quiet residential area and parking on the street outside was never a problem. We only met Kerry in person once but she dealt with all our queries immediately (and had some superb restaurant recommendations). The room and attached bathroom were immaculate and we really did feel at home.
I really enjoyed staying here. Kerry had everything ready for me when I arrived - keys, parking permit etc. She made me feel welcome. Any questions I had she answered really quickly. She even found a charger I could use for my phone when mine stopped working, which was a big help! The location is handy, with the beach not too far away. Lovely room and bathroom. Very comfortable place to stay!
The stay was easy. Kerry promptly contacted me once I made the reservation to confirm and to coordinate details. It was simple and exactly as advertised. I'd stay there again. The space was clean, and I was able to use the kitchen to make hot tea each night. It was easy!
Thank you Kerry!
She was very kind for sharing some of her oats with me the day i arrived as it was late and i was quite hungry after my flight! Check-in was smooth and easy, location was superb, convenient and safe. Room was as described, very clean and comfortable. Consistent flow of hot water, very comfortable for a nice shower.
Kerry was such a great host! Unfortunately we don't met her personally but it was all organized very well and she always had an open ear for us. Thank you for the awesome time!
About the Host, Kerry
You ever wonder what would happen if Super Man got together with Wonder Woman? They'd be a force so powerful that it would melt your brain straight out of your ears. Yeah, that's pretty much us. Except I eat Kryptonite like it was candy and Kerry doesn't have gold bracelets around her wrists--they're platinum gold records! So I guess if that doesn't paint you a picture of how awesome we are, then I don't know (website hidden) we also enjoy throwing the "thumbs up" at each other on a regular basis (see photo)
