I loved the location and my hostess. She was very helpful and kind and a wonderful conversationalist
Highly recommend this airbnb
I'm sorry I couldn't spend more time with Ariel, but the time I did spend was great! The location is ideal for access to all that Santa Monica has to offer without being in the thick of things.
Ariel was extremely accommodating in allowing me to book for the next day after some problems with my former accommodation. The room is clean and comfortable, and Ariel was always on hand for advice on what to do during my stay, or to have a conversation. Thanks so much!
Ariel was delightful, easy to talk with and full of local information. Her apartment is very close to the water and close to great local restaurants. The bed was very comfortable, the room was quiet and I felt welcome.
I would recommend Ariel's place to some one that is looking for a nice place at a great price.
Thank you Ariel!
Ariel has a nice apartment which is only a few blocks away from Santa Monica beach, and also very close to nice cafés, Pavillons etc. Ariel is nice and very helpful host, and she's also the smartest woman that I've ever met. I hope I could stay at her place longer.
I stayed only one night before taking the flight back home. Ariel is a very nice person and very kind. She recommend me places to visit, eat and buy souvenirs. I like it very much the location and the room. It was a pitty I could not stay more time in sta monica with her.
Hôtesse très sympathique et chaleureuse, la chambre était spacieuse et confortable et le lit excellent !!! En ce qui me concerne la localisation était parfaite, le quartier est celui que j'adore à Santa Monica, j'ai passé un très bon séjour et mon hôtesse était vraiment très accueillante et attentive !!!
L'accoglienza di Ariel è stata perfetta, molto disponibile e simpatica ci ha dato utili consigli sulle cose da fare/vedere in zona. L'appartamento,conforme alla descrizione, è situato in un bellissimo palazzo a pochi minuti a piedi dalla 3rd promenade. Noi ci siamo trovati molto bene per cui raccomandiamo a chiunque di soggiornare presso Ariel!!!
Staying with Ariel was the best thing that happend to me in Santa Monica. Her aparment is not only beautiful decorated and has a comfy bed it is also just some minutes away from the center. But what was even more important to me while travelling was a friendly host and I found it in Ariel. She tool great care of me, we had wonderful conversations and meeting her for the first time seemed more like having found a long lost friend again. Ariel you are amazing. You made it hard for me to leave. I miss you so much already! I consider myself a "lucky girl" to have found you!!!
My Experience with Mellie was unforgettable. She greeted me with a big welcome hug and a huge smile on her face. I was starving so she took me to a cute little cafe on our way to her place in order to get my energy up to start exploring Santa Monica.
The location was fantastic, I was there for shopping, exercise and to relax by the beach. With only 3 blocks between you and the beach and 3rd street promenade you cant complain! (each only about a 5min walk, depending on how fast you move those legs)
I also enjoyed joining in with the locals running along the beach paths and playing on the outdoor equipment at the original muscle beach. (approx a 2km run once you hit the ocean from Mellie's place)
On my last day I was lucky enough to be taken for a drive in Mellie's cute convertible up to Malibu beach and through some of the amazing canyons. I felt very blessed as you don't get to experience something like this as a tourist who stays in a hotel.
The room was very comfortable and I slept like a baby every night.
There is no wifi available, but if you like to be connected to people back home McDonalds, Starbucks and some of the shops on 3rd st. Promenade have free internet.
A must is to watch the sunset over Santa Monica Pier!
To sum everything up - I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE
Ariel, AKA Melissa, was a terrific guest. We would welcome her back anytime! Highly recommended!
