I love living in this city and I'll be happy to point you in the right direction to have a good time here!
I love to surf, travel, eat good food, and have good laughs with good friends over a beer or two :)

This is a great place to stay in a terrific neighborhood. Ian is very welcoming. It's just a few blocks to all the fun on Main Street and only two more blocks to the beach. Venice is very accessible, too. The private half bath attached to the bedroom is convenient. I didn't use the kitchen, but Ian said I was welcome to cook and make myself at home. I would stay here again.
Pictures can be deceiving...I'm not sure about the other reviews about being "clean" and "tidy" -- but this place was nothing closer to that.
Our room itself was fine - but to get there we had to step over multiple random cords, discarded clothing was always strewn all over the sofas and coffee table. All of the strewn about personal belongings really made us feel uncomfortable to spending any time in the apartment itself.
Using the (shard ) shower was yet another act of shimming around their voluminous shower / bath / body / hair products. No room on the sink to leave our things, no room in the shower either. Basically - every flat surface in the common space and in the shard shower bathroom was covered in random belongings.
Not "homey" or "chill" -- just messy. Constantly.
Next up - it got a bit chilly in the evening. The host said that the heat was there if we needed it. We tried that -- and it squeeled and whined and groaned and then just....stopped.
The host was nice enough, as I said, because of how utterly messy everything was, we didnt spend much ( any? ) time there except to sleep.
Better options out there for the same price or cheaper!
Great place, exactly as described, clean, tidy and welcoming. Highly recommend.
Place was beautiful and great location. Ian was really friendly and helpful. Had a great time!
Ian was very nice and helpful during our stay. The area is nice and in walking distance from the pier, third street promenade and other cool places.
Very nice friendly quiet and clean. Thank you :).
Space was as described. We felt at home and were vary comfortable - which was most appreciated after our long flight. We rented a car and found Santa Monica a great place to base out of while in LA. Ian is very respectful and helpful when needed. Would stay there again.
Foi ótimo ficar hospedado com o Ian. A localização é excelente, muito próxima da praia, ótimos restaurantes, 15 minutos a pé do píer de Santa Mônica e de lá, mais 5 minutos até a 3rd Street Promenade, e além disso o bairro é muito tranquilo e de atmosfera agradabilíssima.
Ian was a great host!
He was a great communicator and gave me some good advise on what to do in Santa Monica. A lot of the attractions were within walking distance or a short drive of the condo.
My Girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay and will hopefully stay there again.
Ian and his girlfriend are awesome! Such a nice couple - very warm and accommodating. They live in a great part of town which is located literally near everything. The room I stayed in was spacious and also had it's own private half bath which really sealed the deal for me. Ian was very personable and even watched TV and movies with me. I would definitely stay with this host again. Thanks again!
Ian and his girlfriend were great guests to have. We only wish they could have stayed with us longer!
It was a pleasure meeting them and having them as my guests. Hope to see both again.
good guy i really liked him. clean neat friendly.
Ian and I lived two doors from each other growing up. He's been my friend for about 15 years now and a good one at that. He is open-minded, personable and has an incredible ability to be present in the moment with whomever he's with, wherever he is. He'll be a great resource for fun things to do if that's what you're there for, but he'll also give you privacy if you're just looking for an easy place to stay. I really trust him and highly recommend his room.
