Gene was definitely one of the friendliest people we've had the pleasure of meeting! He helped us get around to find parking, and we were greeted with a genuine smile and help with our luggage. He was great with showing us instructions on getting in and out of the building and where everything was located in his studio. If you're going to stay anywhere along the Santa Monica beach, this is the place to go! The location is amazing, and it's literally right in front of the water! Overall, this place was perfect for our anniversary. Great location, views, and a super comfy bed :)
*For some, it may be a little noisy during the night even though you are on the top floor, so if you're a light sleeper, we recommend bringing some earplugs.
LOCATION, LOCATION!! Great apartment! Gene was an amazing host, we unfortunately had a major delay in our flight and felt really bad rescheduling key retrieval from Gene but he was beyond hospitable & understanding.
The view is trifold, Nightscape, Sunset, to Sun Rise - so many different ways to experience that view. We weren't at the apartment very much because there are so many things nearby! Apartment was exactly as pictured, building was secure & 24hr valet! Would love to stay again
Gene's apt was amazing! I can't say enough about how wonderful his view was, we were right on the beach! His apt was beautifully decorated and only a few steps from the pier and lots of great restaurants and bars. We had an incredible stay!
Perfection is the first word that comes to mind when I think of this apartment. Location could not be any better. Gene was a fantastic host, very easy to communicate with- leading up to our visit, during and at the end. He gave us some excellent recommendations which there are plenty on the listing too. Apartment is exactly as described, if not better. The sunset was spectacular with the most amazing view. When we come back to Santa Monica we would definitely stay at Genes apartment. Could not get any better value for money. Our first air bnb experience could not have been any better.
The apartment was great! Just as described. We loved the location! It was a bit loud at times, but the view totally made up for it! So gorgeous! Loved the fresh air you get being up on the 16th floor.
Two words: amazing view. This place is up on the 16th floor, in the highest building along Ocean Ave. the bed was very comfortable and everything we needed was provided. The shades weren't the best, but who cares with that view! I'll be staying here again, I'm sure.
Great experience! Gene was easy to work with and the view was amazing!
Gene was a great host and the apartment has one of the best views you can get in Santa Monica!
The location was perfect! Beautiful beach views and walking distance to great restaurants and shopping. The apartment was the perfect size for us. Gene was great and very accommodating! We had a late arrival, made later by a delayed flight, but Gene was very responsive and waiting for us when we arrived.
This apartment is in a great location! Gene was also a great host! We had issues with the Wi-Fi that turned out to be a Verizon issue but Gene really tried to get the problem solved. It was also very nice to have parking on site. We throughly enjoyed our stay.
