Karen was such a pleasure to work with. Very responsive to our needs. Her studio is very clean and modern. The bed is quite comfortable too and the wifi is strong. What you see is what you get with the photos she posted. And you cannot beat the location as it's walking distance to the beach and promenade. If you want a cozy, chic studio to stay in and use a kitchen this is a better alternative to finding a hotel room near the pier. I would love to stay at her place again.
Karen's Santa Monica studio is very conveniently located, beautifully decorated, impeccably clean, and quiet. The Apple TV was great for watching movies. After a long day at the Getty Villa and wandering the Venice canals, we enjoyed fixing a quiet dinner at home in the small but well-equipped kitchen. The grocery store (plus innumerable cafés and shops) is only two blocks away as are busses to all parts of Loa Angeles. Our check-in was as smooth as could be and I'd love to stay here again.
The studio apartment is in a new building and is pleasantly furnished. The location is terrific -- within walking distance of downtown Santa Monica's restaurants and shops. But the room was smaller than we expected -- smaller than the average hotel room. The underground parking is a bonus. Karen was a good, conscientious host.
This place is GREAT! It is small but Karen has done a great job maximizing the space. It is nicely equipped and very clean. The location is within walking distance to the best of Santa Monica and the garage space below could not be more convenient. Karen was an excellent host - informative (yet not overbearing), helpful and prompt to respond. We would, without hesitation, stay here again.
Our stay in Karen's apartment was wonderful. It was immaculate and smelled like a fancy hotel. The check in/check out were seamless and Karen was always very communicative via email if we had any questions. The location of this place is ideal for Santa Monica. We didn't need to drive our car once. I would absolutely look to stay here again if we are in the area. Thanks Karen for your hospitality!
We absolutely loved Karen's apartment and would absolutely come back next time we are in the area. Karen made sure she was 100% available to us while we were staying with her, and ensured that the check-in and check-out process was as smooth as can be. The apartment was clean, cozy, quiet and just far enough from the central tourist area not to be in the thick of it, but close enough not to require a car to get to most places in Santa Monica and Venice. She is one of the most gracious hosts I've ever stayed with and I hope to be back again soon!
Karen was a wonderful host. She made it possible to check in very early which after a long flight was great. She was very welcoming and communicated clearly before we came and checked in that all was going well with the apartment during our stay. The apartment itself was a delight; clean, comfortable and colorful with a lovely personal touch. It was in a really convenient location and thus easy to walk to the beach or shops.
We would recommend both Karen and the apartment most highly.
Karens place was perfect! It was clean, funky, quiet and had everything you needed, including lots of helpful tips. You also cannot get a better location in Santa Monica. We had a car and hardly used it - you can walk or cycle everywhere.
Karen was an amazing host right from the initial communication. She made everything so easy and was so helpful. On our last day, our flight home was not until 10pm so she kindly let us stay in her place until we had to leave for our flight. Incredibly generous!
We couldn't recommend this place enough!
Karen's place was great. The location was perfect; close enough to walk to the touristy stuff yet just far enough away to not be crazy. The secure parking garage was an added bonus. If you are looking for a small studio for 2, you can't go wrong staying with Karen.
Great guests, thanks for visting! Come back any time when you visit Yosemite.
Karen has a fanstastic place conveniently located near great shopping, restaurants, and the beach! Would definitely recommend staying here, had a lovely time while visiting in Santa Monica.
Karen is an exceptional host - very considerate and makes logistics a breeze. An experienced foodie, she is a great resource for bar and restaurant recommendations. Her Santa Monica apartment is a perfect home base for exploring the area. There is no need to bring a car: some of the best shopping in the country is across the street at Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica Place (also, check out the rooftop food hall), the beach and pier are a few short blocks away, and tons of great restaurants are also within walking distance.
