I've always wanted to run a Bed and Breakfast, and I love that airbnb lets me test out my skills while letting people stay in my awesome apartment by the sea.
Our stay at Tami's appt was great!
We found everything we needed, a confort space, great location, cool neighbors...
We didn't meet Tami as she was not in town but she makes us welcome and took good care of us.
We where 4 people and had a great time.
The location was great, good parking outside. Roomly kitchen and all you could need.
We had a lovely time in Santa Monica, and Tami's bungalow made that possible.
There were 3 of us: two sleeping in the bedroom (good sized bed) and one sleeping in the living room on the huge couch which is super comfortable.
The location is good. Even though, it's probably a 20-25 min walk to the beach, and a 40 min walk to the pier, the bus stop is a 3 minute walk away and it's a short bus ride to these destinations.
The bungalow's local area is a residential area that's safe and quiet (with plenty of free parking )moreover it has a huge supermarket (albertson's) , a bank, a beauty parlour and a hair salon around the corner..
Tami was a great host and is very helpful and responsive. Her place has a friendly vibe and has everything you need, it is also conveniently a couple of minutes' walk to a supermarket and bus stop. There is a lovely big couch that we enjoyed relaxing on after a day of sightseeing. It was good to be able to make our own breakfast and store stuff in the fridge. My husband liked the bed, but I found it a little uncomfortable, however that is probably up to personal taste. Overall a nice little self contained place, it was easy to get to Santa Monica by bus from here.
This is a nice, roomy apartment in a good neighborhood. Tami answered my calls right away and was friendly. It's not quite ready for prime time and a bit more lived in than the pictures, but she is very generous with kitchen and bathroom supplies.
Tami's apartment was perfectly located, right between the beach (walking distance), Santa Monica center (such as Main Street, where shops, restaurants, cafes and bars were located). There were buses to the university and down town Santa Monica. The apartment itself was nice and very clean, absolutely sufficient for two people. Tami was very open and friendly, and ready to help with anything. The kitchen was equipped with all that was necessary for cooking, we were received with breakfast utensils, towels, bed sheets, etc. All in all, we had a great stay and very much appreciated the apartment.
Tami was very friendly welcoming. She always answered our emails promptly. She provided a really nice and thoughtful welcome pack which included local info and yummy muffins. Her place was in a great location - the beach was within 20 minutes on foot, great to have the supermarket round the block and parking was never a problem. Very close to great restaurants and places to go out. Close to PCH 1 and I10 which made very convenient for us. All in all a really great experience! We would love to come back!
We just got back from a wonderful week in southern California . Spent 3 days in Tami's apartment in Santa Monica , which was great. It is very comfortable for 3 people , and has everything that you need for a pleasant stay. Checking in ,and staying in contact with Tami was a breeze.The location can't be beat! We had a car, but if you are just going to be in the L.A. area, you can walk or use public transportation . You can take the Big Blue Bus which was very efficient for $1.00 ! There is an Albertsons around the corner for groceries , which also sells beer, wine, and liquor . You can walk to Santa Monica pier or Venice Beach ( less than a mile) if you have time check out the 4 square block area of the original Venice canals! Thanks for a great stay Tami. Can't wait to go back!
Tami's place is cute and cozy, and really close to the beach. Tami was more than helpful to provide tips and suggestions on Santa Monica and LA. Enjoyed this stay a lot!
Tami is a great host... Her house was really comfy!
Many thanks to her!
If you're looking for someone who will help to make a smooth, fun trip to Santa Monica, Tami's your woman. She's cool, organized and knows a ton about the city. Hanging out with her is a opportunity you'd be sad to miss.
Tami's great. She's full of energy & is always respectful of others. Her apartment is in a beautiful neighborhood, close to downtown Santa Monica, the beach and Venice. She'd be an excellent host if you were to stay at her place!
Tami is a friend of mine and I am happy to vouch for her as a friendly, smart, trustworthy person who I'd be happy to host or stay at! In fact I'm a fellow host, and I know how important good references are, so take it from me, you won't regret it! :)
Tami is a hoot. Always fun to hang out with, great at board games and wicked sense of humor. Santa Monica a few blocks from the beach doesn't get much better than Tami's place. She has great taste in decor. Life the beach life, like the rest of Southern Californians!
