From Los Angeles
Brent was a stellar host! His place is just as pictured with a nicely appointed kitchen and lots of great books, music and movies in his living area. His flexibility with checkin/checkout time made traveling much easier on our 2 year old and he was very responsive to our questions/requests. The location itself is in my favorite part of Santa Monica; a 10 minute walk to the beach and Main Street with its shops and restaurants, a 5 minute walk to a huge Whole Foods with lots of prepared food options, all in a quaint neighborhood. Staying here is truly experiencing Santa Monica/Venice like a local. We highly recommend Brent's place and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Brent's suite was perfect for the 3 days of chilling at the beach with my young family. My 2.5-year-old daughter watched Pixar movies on the DVD player and called the place "our new house" :)
This venue is much closer to Venice Beach than the Santa Monica Pier. It's a 5-10 minute walk downhill to get to Main Street, and another 5 mins to get to Venice's main drag of shops (particularly the umbrella/chair rental kiosk). That worked well for our plans, and when we wanted to get to the Pier or the 3rd St Promenade, we drove the 5-10 minutes to Santa Monica Boulevard. If you attempt the walk to the Pier, especially with a child in a stroller, it might take 45-60 mins.
Brent was very responsive throughout our stay and his place was stylish, clean, and restful. He gave us a short list of dining spots and attractions that were tailored to our interests. Highly recommended.
Brent was a super responsive, very helpful and a great host - and his place is just awesome and in convenient location in Venice! I enjoyed my stay there very, very much. Everything was what I expected - and even better!
Brent was an awesome host and his place was great - walking distance to the beach and nightlife but a few blocks away so you're still able to relax.
Brent's place was cool, clean, and a short walk to the beach.
Brent was a great guest!
