my wife and i thoroughly enjoyed our visit at cortland's apartment. the location is great. only 2 blocks to the beach to the west and just a few blocks from the montana avenue shopping and dining district to the east. we liked the residential character of the neighborhood since it was free from the noise and congestion of the area closer to the santa monica pier, yet close enough to get to that action if we wanted.
cortland and his friend Naz were great hosts. they stocked the apartment with all kinds of goodies and asked for and fulfilled our special requests. they met us upon our arrival and again helped us with our departure (they even helped with our luggage!). they could not have been nicer or more considerate.
the apartment is in great shape and very comfortable. there is a nice deck with some furniture for some outdoor living. the bed is very comfortable and the linens were quite nice. towels and other bath accessories were high quality and plentiful. the kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with cooking supplies. the private parking in the building's garage was secure and convenient. cortland has bicycles available too.
we would stay there again and have nothing but praise for cortland. he really cares and it comes through in both the physical appearance and function of the apartment and in his great demeanor. he made us feel like honored guests.
Awesome location, super comfortable and clean apartment, only bettered by being hosted by Cortland.
Met me to let me in for my late arrival to make sure I settled in. He really looks after you and the apartment is fully kitted with kitchen utensils, bottled water, snacks - all the comforts of home! Beach cruisers were a happy bonus.
Wish I could have stayed longer.
Fantastic host! Cortland is hospitable person. He was very helpful. The place is very comfortable and clean. Thanks for everything.
Cortland was an incredible host.
His ultra-luxury apartment was like a boutique hotel in the best location in Santa Monica - walking distance to the Santa Monica stairs, SoulCycle, the beach, Bungalow at the Fairmont Hotel, etc. And what wasn't walking distance was an easy, inexpensive uber ride.
The view and amenities are unmatched. There are floor to ceiling windows in the living room with an unobstructed view of the beach from which you can see from the Santa Monica peer to Malibu. The shower doubles as a steam room complete with eucalyptus essential oil. The latex mattress and memory foam pillows gave us a great night's sleep. And while we didn't use the kitchen, Cortland provides you with everything you would need plus baskets of goodies to enjoy after a long day of travel.
Cortland even provided us with a beach bag and beach towels upon arrival. He also has yogitoes yoga towels if you want to go up to YogaWorks on Montana. Not one detail was neglected. Do not hesitate on renting this place
This was my first experience with airbnb, and I will be hard pressed to find a better place to stay.
Cortland is fantastic! With this being my first Air BNB, I was a bit apprehensive but Cortland made me feel right at home from the minute he met me at the curb to welcome me to his place. His apartment is very homey and had little touches like bottled water by the bed, beach towels readily available and a basket filled with all kinds of snacks. It was those little touches and his outgoing personality that made me feel right at home. The apartment is in the best location - walk to the beach, Whole Foods, Starbuck or the Promenade in just minutes. The kitchen was adequately equipped so it was easy to whip up dinner a couple of nights during my stay. The bed is super comfy and I loved that I was able to sleep with the sliding doors open to let the beautiful Cali breeze in. The grounds of the building were very well maintained and I felt very safe going in and out of the building at all times of the day and night.
The apartment was extremely clean, the internet was spot on and the Apple TV was great for the nights I stayed in.
Cortland was very attentive and answered any questions I may have had and I liked that he checked in with me just to make sure everything was going well.
I will definitely be back! I cannot wait to stay here again.
This is the best airbnb I have ever stayed in.
The host was very helpful but non-intrusive.
The apartment is extraordinarily equipped. The beds are comfortable with high thread count sheets and multiple pillows of varied softness. The kitchen had spices, condiments, utensils , snacks and pots and pans. The bathrooms were spotless and full of toiletries.
In addition he offered use of his surfboard and wetsuit gratis.
I can not over recommend this venue
A+++! Cortland is a first class host and his apartment rocks. Thank you for the great stay!
Great experience! Cortland and Nazy were very nice and friendly, they prepared everything for you! Location is perfect, 3 mins to the beach. This is the place for a wonderful vacation! We love and enjoy it very much
The neighbourhood couldn't have been better. What a perfect spot. Cort made us feel super welcome and he thought of absolutely everything we might possibly need to make our stay perfect.
Our stay couldn't have been better. Cortland and Nazy were perfect hosts. Welcoming, easy, warm, and generous. The apartment exceeded expectations. It's much larger than I imagined from the photos. The layout is perfect -- the bedrooms are comfortable (we used both) and the open living room and dining room made it easy for us and a local friend to spend a lot of time there during the day. All three of us know the area and agree the apartment is exceptional. It also has all the furnishings we needed and more. We chose the apartment partly because the location is the best in Santa Monica (close to the beach and the Promenade and Montana), but everything was so nice we would have been just as happy if location wasn't as good. We hope to stay with Cortland and Nazy again, and will plan our trip around the availability of their apartments rather than look for something else.
Wow! What a friendly, high-energy and fun guest to have Cortland was.
Cortland was polite, very easy to get along with. The room was spotless after he left.
Would love to stay at his Air bnb places in Santa Monica, sometime!
Cortland was a pleasure. Wonderful guest.
