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.

I spent my first two nights in LA in Santa Monica in Kerry's excellent apartment, and it was a great way to begin my trip.
The room was clean, spacious and had its' own ensuite, giving me all the comfort and privacy I needed. The house is within a short drive of Santa Monica beach and just a little further towards Venice Beach, making it an excellent base for sight seeing.
Kerry was a kind and welcoming host. Thoroughly recommend.
Kerry's place was a great home-base to come back to after a long day exploring the city! The neighborhood is convenient and the house is clean and comfortable. I definitely second Kerry's recommendation to bring or rent a bike to explore Santa Monica and Venice.
Kerry is a very welcoming and friendly host. I mostly explored the city on my own, but Kerry had some really helpful recommendations, including a beautiful hike just a few minutes away from the house.
Enjoyed my stay at Kerry's. The bed is comfortable and the room as pictured. Having a private bath is so nice and the parking pass is priceless!
Kerry was a great host! Her apartment location and description were accurate. She was so friendly and helpful, pointing out a great hike we could take. But she also gave us our space at times so my wife and I could enjoy one another. I totally recommend being Kerry's guest.
Kerry is a very nice host. She gave us a lot freedom in the apartment and offered us a lot of help. The room was in a beautiful style. There were no air conditioner in the room though, so it is a bit cold during late December. However, Kerry offered us extra blankets. The location is pretty convenient, restaurants and cheap buses as advertised. Nice winter trip there!
Everything was perfect! Nice room and bathroom. Kerry is a realy nice host I like her a lot. We would love to come back. Thanks
We stayed at Kerry ' s place for two nights when we were on a short holiday in LA. She was a very good host and her apartment was very cozy and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay in LA.
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)
