The perfect spot to experience LA beach life. 10 blocks from the beach in residential Santa Monica. Gorgeous 1br/1ba with full living room, dining room and kitchen. Plus use of two bikes for exploring the beach, pier, promenade, bars & restaurants.
This 1br/1ba is located in residential Santa Monica, between Wilshire Blvd and Montana Ave.
Santa Monica is one of the most walkable cities in America. You'll be in a quaint, quiet, safe residential neighborhood just a stroll away from the beach, pier, Palisades Park, Promenade, and great restaurants along 3rd, Main St and Montana Ave. And you're only a short car ride to Venice, Malibu, Culver City, Topanga Canyon hikes, Hollywood, and downtown LA.
I'm extremely clean and expect the same from my guests. You will have access to any and everything in the apartment. I have a HDTV, Chromecast, DVD player, Wifi internet, and Time Warner Cable. The bed, bliss: a queen-size Heavenly mattress (used at W and Westin hotels) with down comforter. You will also have full use of my two bicycles, which is phenomenal for cruising around the beach bike path or the neighborhood. There is a coin-operated laundry facility on site.
I will not be present during your stay.
Importantly, you'll also have your own dedicated parking spot! No having to find street parking, which is always a hassle anywhere in Santa Monica. But in case you don't plan to have a car, there is plenty of public transit available on the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus, which has a bus stop half a block away. For taxis and getting to/from the airport, I recommend using Uber, which is the cheapest taxi/car service around.
No smoking, no pets. Quiet time after 10pm.
This is a great location. Plus, 2 bikes make it fun for touring other local towns and the beach.
Nice place in a great location, and very clean as advertised. Russ was flexible with check-in and check-out times; this helped us a lot with our scheduling! The welcome pack that Russ sends is thorough and answers most questions that might come up. The parking spot in the back of the building was super convenient. Great stay, thanks Russ!
The apartment worked out perfectly for us. It was very clean and neat. Most importantly, the bed was extremely comfortable! Russ was available to answer questions. And it was really nice having a dedicated covered parking space!
Russ's place was very clean and comfortable. It was exactly what we expected from the description provided by Russ. It was wonderful to have the off street covered parking. The location of his unit was fantastic; so close to everything. The Santa Monica Beach, shopping at the Third Street Promenade, the pier, restaurants, Montana Avenue, Venice Beach, Abbott Kinney, etc. were all within walking or biking distance. The entire check in/check out process was easy and very convenient. We had a fabulous time and would recommend staying at Russ's place to anyone.
All perfect and went to plan. The place was clean and ready as described. Great location, good neighbourhood, easy walk into main amenities. The bikes and parking space are very valuable. Russ was responsive and courteous at all times.
Russ' place is great! My husband and I recently stayed here while attending a comedy festival on the Santa Monica Pier. It's a nice little one-bedroom apartment in the residential part of Santa Monica. Only 10 blocks from the pier, we rode the two bicycles Russ provides down to the festival. It has everyone you would need from a full kitchen to TV with cable and free wifi, not to mention you have the whole apartment to yourself. I would definitely stay here again :)
All as promised. Russ was always quick to respond. Apt was in great location, convient to all. What you see is exactly what you get. Everything needed was provided, (even a blender to make protein shakes) Thank you Russ for a good week!
Russ' place is as promised, great location and a comfortable bed. He was very organized and a great communicator throughout the entire process. The apartment is comfortable and the parking a bonus (parking on Ocean is anywhere from $7-20, so take the bikes if you can). Plenty of stuff in walking distance as well (grocery store, liquor store, restaurants, etc.).
We really enjoyed our stay here and had zero complaints about the place. It was very neat and clean, as advertised. The process of getting the keys and parking in the spot behind the house was seamless. As advertised, the bed is very comfortable! The only thing to note is that the place is about 7 blocks from the beach which in Santa Monica will take 10-15 minutes to reach. Others stated that in their review as well, but if you are looking for a beach-side property it is worth noting. Otherwise - great area, great place!
Russ' place is easy to get in to, has parking (that I did not use), is clean, and is in a great location. Russ is helpful and easily reachable via phone. It went flawlessly.
