I'm from Santa Monica, CA...graduate student studying Sustainability. I'm a mother, but will be traveling alone. I love to explore new and old places. I'm a bit reserved, but love to get together with like minded people.

I was very fortunate to have connected with Leah. My plans were very last minute and she was very accommodating. When I stepped into her apt. I immediately felt weight and worry drift off my bags. She has a beautiful piece of art on her wall that is actually just a board painted with chalkboard paint. Each day, or when the spirit moves she can alter the board. The word on the board when I arrived was 'Stillness'. It was perfect for relaxing couple of days in Santa Monica.
The apt. is immaculate and clean. I was offered a choice of two beds that could sleep in. Both were prepared with care. Her apt. is located and connected with a few other apts. upstairs but I never heard a peep from anyone. i slept with the windows open every night and I could barely hear the traffic which is actually right outside the window on Ocean Blvd. I'm sensitive to noise to as I live in NYC. Despite my familiarity with tons of ambient noise-I need quiet to sleep. Leah's place has it in spades.
The hardwood floors throughout along with the tile in the bathroom and kitchen help keep things clean and cool. I left my shoes at the door and walked barefoot (which seemed appropriate seeing as it's CA after all).
All and all I would stay in Leah's place again in a heartbeat when next I visit Santa Monica-or any part of Southern LA.
I'm sure there are more details but simply I remember it being a wonderful stay in every way.
The pictures don't match the location -- but this location is well located about 2-1/2 blocks west of Lincoln where there is a grocery store and about 8 blocks East of the ocean and at a very nice section of beach.
There's a radio but no TV but good internet access. Your hostess is delightful and took care of the one issue I had in no time flat -- and she even gave me a ride back to the airport!
There's a nice farmer's market on (email hidden). about 5 blocks toward the beach and food trucks at the same place on Tuesday evenings. On Tuesdays coffee at the food place on the beach is free.
I'd stay there again.
This is a sweet little home--feels like a bungalow. Perfect for 2-4 folks or a small family. It's a short walk down to Main street to the shops/restaurants and just another block or so to the beach. Longer walk to Santa Monica Promenade & Pier. A bike or car would be nice for this locale- although I got around on foot and hitched rides with friends or took buses/cabs when I needed to go further out into LA.
Leah was a gracious and responsive host; space was adorable and neighborhood was charming. Highly recommended!
What a perfect place! July's home is charming and peaceful. We needed our own little nest to stay in while getting to know our first grandchild who lives around the corner. Her place is perfectly located in one of the most walkable neighborhoods imaginable. Our host was delightful and we would love to visit here again.

A wonderful guest, please come back.
Wonderful guest, left my apt. in perfect condition. Thank you! Highly recommend to future hosts :)
Another great Airbnb guest, clean, tidy and considerate. I would recommend to future hosts.
Stephanie and her friend were fantastic guests. They took great care of my place and left it spotless. She even gave me a couple of helpful suggestions for future guests! I would love to host Stephanie again in the future.
Stephanie was a wonderful guest. Great communication and she left my apartment clean and tidy. I would be happy to have her back as a guest.
Stephanie is a wonderful person and someone you would love to know. She has great stories and is a good listener. Weather you are staying with her or hosting her, I know she will be an addition to your life.
Stephanie is one of the kindest, most authentic people I know. She is genuine, fun and loving. I imagine any traveler staying with her will feel at ease, at home and have a wonderful time. I've known Steph for many years and she is a true friend. She is always positive and honest and is always present. She shows up ready to welcome you in and embraces good people with fierceness that I admire so much.
If you stay with Steph, I know you will not regret it!
I have known Stephanie since high school, and I have always found her to be reliable, a great communicator, and fun! I trust her completely, and she's doing great things for the environment, so that's a winning combination in my book. Anyone who stays at her place will feel safe, and be in good hands too.
