We parked on the streets and were able to find parking late at night in the area.
We enjoyed our stay a lot.Driving to and from anywhere into Santa Monica ,Malibu etc was easy.Lovely (email hidden)lid (email hidden)eat value for what we (website hidden) has lovely beaches and super canyons to hike in too.And all the rest too.Thanks Lauren for hosting us so beautifully.Would love to stay here again.
We had an amazing long weekend at Lauren's loft! The space was perfect for the 3 of us (I travelled with my teenage daughter & her friend, whom I graciously let lay claim to the upstairs bedroom).
Location right off Abbott Kinney was perfect. Close to lots of shopping, great restos, and our morning coffee at Blue Bottle coffee.
Less than 10 minute walk to the beach.
Lovely balcony to enjoy the afternoon sun.
Bright & airy space.
Lots of room for us to all spread out.
Well equipped kitchen.
Garage parking was helpful.
Some reviews have mentioned the early morning spin studio music...it actually wasn't too bad, and encouraged us to get up and enjoy the day!
Lauren was easily reachable, but we didn't need much help.
We had a great week at Lauren's apartment. The apartment is super clean and has lots of sunlight. It was close to the beach, restaurants and shops. The kitchen was well equipped. I would recommend this apartment to all of my friends!!!!
Lauren's description of the apartment is accurate. Check in was easy and convenient.
Here is a tip for future guests:
The parking spot is great to have, so make sure your car can fit! We rented a minivan (dodge caravan) and it fit but only if the people who parked next to us really gave us enough room. This didn't always happen. A big SUV would not have fit.
Amazing house, amazing location!
Spent a week in LA for business and Lauren was a great host. The house was in the perfect spot super close to Abbot Kinney Blvd and Venice beach so could walk to all restaurants and bars in the area will definitely be coming back!
The apartment was perfect for our stay in Venice. Right next to the canals, couple of blocks from the beach, quick walk to Abbot-Kinney. Everything was as described. Very clean, comfortable, with a great little deck to relax on in afternoons. Garage was no problem for our Honda Civic. Thanks to Lauren for providing such a great place to stay!
Lauren is a super host. I had a couple special requests prior to our stay and she was very accommodating and responsive.
The property was just as described. A great location for both the beach and Abbot Kinney shops/restaurants. Accommodations are clean and quiet when it's time to relax.
Our check in went smoothly and the neighborhood was great, a nice 10 minute walk to beach and 5 min to Main Street! Yard was lush, very well watered for drought though. Beds comfortable too! Parking a little hard to find at night, may have to park on another street. House is located in back of another house, so you'll have to walk around the car in driveway and past their personal space to get to the back house beach cottage.
This place was great. It is a really big apartment and very spacious. Had a little trouble with the keys but Lauren was great and very helpful when we called her. Location was also very good. Really enjoyed our time here and would definitely love to stay again.
Loved Lauren's Surf Pad! It was so close to everything and was the perfect place for our little family (3 month old and 2.5 yr old). Everything was as expected. Checking in and out was a breeze.
Some great pluses were: Laundry machine, Beach umbrella, sand toys for the kids, extra beach towels.
Would totally stay again! Thanks Lauren!!!
We been staying here for almost one month.the house is clean and bright.we pretty much enjoyed the garden as well.Lauren is so nice helped us for everything. she answered every of my single question.5mins drive to the Venice beach.3 mins drive to the supermarket.hope we have chance to come back to Santa Monica and stay here again!
Lauren and her husband were a pleasure. Everything was very well taken care of, and communication was excellent.
Lauren and her family were friendly and personable.
They left our he in great shape and we would be happy to host them again.
We could not have hoped for a better guest. Lauren was diligent in her communication during the reservation process. She was really easy to work with throughout. When we arrived home from a long trip to find our place in perfect shape, we couldn't believe we had actually been paid for this process. Lauren is the best and no one should hesitate to work with her through airbnb. Thanks!
Trevor, Lauren & her little boy were the type of family, that you wished stayed for a week! Intelligent, fun, kind, & considerate. We enjoyed our brief conversations & we would welcome them back with open arms anytime. Many Blessings.
I have known Lauren for about 4 years. she is the most honest, straight forward person I know.
She is an amazing mother and friend. She loves and takes lots of pride in her house. Beautiful furniture, very well kept and extremely clean. I highly recommend her house for a fun and enjoyable stay and for its great central location.
Lauren is a great friend, and mother! Her apt is near a park and other easy fun spots as well as convenient to get around in LA.
