It was a pleasure to stay in Scott's Santa Monica apartment. Scott was an excellent host and even provided some food and wine for when we arrived. Scott was extremely accommodating in regard to our early check in time and even let us borrow his beach cruisers. The location was great. It was quiet, comfy, and clean. We felt right at home! I am ready to plan a return trip and I know where I am staying!
What an amazing location and great space! Scott was incredibly helpful (picked me up and dropped me off at our daughter's apt which was only a 6 block walk but my bags were really heavy). The goodies in the kitchen included a wonderful variety of items. I hope to return next summer and have already recommended Scott's place to friends.
This property is awsome!!The apartment is spacious, clean, and in an ideal location. Scott was a great host and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again next time I am in Santa Monica!
We had a lovely 4-day stay in Scott's beautiful Santa Monica apt. The place is tastefully decorated, centrally located (5 min walk to the beach and Main St.), with easy parking. Scott was flexible with regards to our check-in and check-out times, thoughtfully left us some bread, wine, cheese and fruit so we didn't have to go food shopping the first day, and rapidly provided us with assistance when we were in need of it. I would certainly stay here again!
Great trip to Santa Monica for the Weekend made even better by Scott and Kate's place. Really lovely and well appointed apartment. Incredibly gracious hosts, left fixings for coffee and breakfast, and a room full from top to bottom with an amazing book collection. We were provided with an organized folio of things to do and see in Santa Monica and even got personalized phone calls with more info. We could not have been happier, Everything you could need is right there in the apt. Very comfy bed too. Scott takes some incredible photos and you will find some of his work in the apt and perhaps in local galleries.
My husband and I stayed at Scott's great place for 4 nights/5days and had a wonderful time. Scott was easy to communicate with and made the checking in/checking out process very easy. The apartment was very clean and well appointed for our needs. He even left us a bottle of wine, mineral water, organic eggs, cheese, butter, fruit, etc. These were very nice touches and made us feel right at home. Parking was easy and we never had trouble finding a spot. The area felt very safe and peaceful and is located very close to the beach, great restaurants and a wonderful farmer's market (though it is was more like a mini country fair - fun, fun!) on Sunday mornings! We were very happy with our choice to stay in Santa Monica over any other neighbourhood and we took advantage of the great amenities of staying outside of a touristy centre. Yet, it was still close enough to everything we wanted to see in LA! I would highly recommend Scott's place to anyone! The only thing I would mention is that there is no air conditioning so on the warm nights we slept with the windows open, which was wonderful to have the cool ocean breezes, but of course the sounds of the city came in right along with those glorious ocean breezes and we needed to use our ear plugs, but we always travel with ear plugs anyways so that was no problem for us. Worth picking up a pair! Thanks again Scott for your lovely hospitality!
Our stay in Santa Monica was absolutely perfect! Scott is a fabulous host with an amazing pad, located just minutes from main street and the beach! We were able to walk and/or bike anywhere; Venice, 3rd St. Promenade and the Santa Monica Pier.
The apartment was super cute, very clean and had all the necessary amenities - including a super comfortable king size bed. We were also given a great manual that includes tips and suggestions on what to visit/eat/see etc.
We felt right at home and would highly recommend it to anyone who's looking for a great place to stay in Santa Monica. Missing it already.
Staying at Scott and Kate’s place was a wonderful experience, especially being my first time booking through airbnb. I spent 3 nights here, and Scott was very flexible and accommodating with my flight schedule in regards to checking in and out. It is ideally located on the south end of Santa Monica just three blocks from the beach and a 20 minute walk to Venice. Parking was easy with a guest parking pass.
The apartment is clean, comfortable, and exactly like the photos. The bedroom was spacious, the bed comfortable, library impressive, and the kitchen well-stocked with organic eggs, cheese, yogurt, orange juice, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, bread, butter, and a bottle of wine plus other goodies. There was really no need to eat breakfast out.
I will definitely stay here again on future trips to LA.
The apartment is cute, clean and very comfortable. The neighborhood is mellow, but an easy walk to restaurants, bars, the beach, etc. Parking is on the street, but over a two week period I was usually able to find a space less than a block away Scott is a great host, staples were provided and the kitchen is completely adequate for two. I'd recommend it with no reservations.
My parents stayed in this lovely one bedroom apartment for about a week at the beginning of May. They are from the midwest and not familiar with the West Coast, particularly what Los Angeles is like. Scott and Kate were incredibly helpful and available for them. The apartment was well-appointed and very clean, with an ocean-view bedroom. The kitchen had everything they needed, including some basic groceries and a bottle of wine! We even borrowed a couple of bikes for a ride on the Santa Monica bike path. It was truly a great vacation for them. Highly recommended.
Scott and I have been good friends for many years and I highly recommend him as a host. His place is beautiful, clean, and completely furnished with plenty of comfortable space in which to relax. It’s in a fabulous Ocean Park location close to the beach and only a two-block stroll from Main Street’s restaurants, cafes and shops. I’m confident that Scott’s guests will have a wonderful experience throughout their stay.
