Fantastic stay! My family and I had a great time staying at Steven's place in Santa Monica. The location couldn't be better, right across the street from the pier and a couple of blocks from the 3rd street promenade. The space itself was perfect for the 5 of us -- plenty of room throughout and having parking right in the building with a space next to the elevator was a huge bonus. I'd definitely stay here again.
Great apartment, beautiful views. In the center of santa monica and right on the pier. Enjoyed the sunsets.
I stayed in this property for a month while on assignment for work in Santa Monica. Pros: the location and ocean front view can't be beat! The apartment was incredibly clean, and the washer/dryer and ease of parking made it a wonderful place to stay.
A few things to note: apartment is quite noisy due to location, so difficult to sleep at times; shower is in need of repair and water pressure really not great; internet connection was spotty for about half of the month; kitchen not ideal for cooking if you are looking for that.
Steven very responsive via email, but I never met him in person. Luis, building manager, is your day-to-day contact.
Note: This review is for the 1br on Ocean Ave, and not the larger property.
The apartment is perfectly located and well maintained. The host left some towels which was very much appreciated.
The surrounding of the apartment is excellent, just a few steps from the pier and a few restaurants. Our stay was perfect.
The apartment is ideally located, close to so many wonderful restaurants, shops and beach. Yet it is comfortable and quiet for sleeping.
We had a wonderful time and Steven was very responsive. A few upgrades in the older furnishings and lighting would make it really special . Overall a great place.
Steven was easy to work with, the location was superb, and the parking for two cars was more than convenient. However, we were disappointed by how poorly the unit is maintained. The balcony awning was broken, and the balcony furniture was dirty; as such, the balcony just wasn't usable. In addition, the master bathroom shower was broken, and we spent one night awake because the fire alarm needed a new battery. The towels, guest bed, and kitchen supplies were all dismal, there was ripped furniture and there wasn't even toilet paper holders in the bathrooms. The property is great but it isn't well taken care of. I'd still recommend this place to those who will be spending most of their time out and about and don't really care about luxuries, but wouldn't recommend it to those who are just looking for a comfortable place to stay with minimal hassles.
After a last minute cancellation of our LA accommodation, we discovered Steven's apartment (it must have been fate!) My husband and I had an amazing five-night stay in this apartment and we must say that the headline doesn't lie when it says 'best view'. Located opposite the famous Santa Monica Pier and beach, we could enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of SM from our very own balcony!
The location could not have been better - a stone's throw from all the best restaurants, bars and attractions of Santa Monica.
The apartment was bigger than expected, with a huge living area and completely separate bedroom. The kitchen had everything we needed and the bed was very big and comfortable.
We loved that a car space was included (as we had hired a car) and there was a laundry on site which was very handy.
The apartment was spotless on arrival and quite modern.
We were most appreciative of Steven's hospitality at such short notice. He was easy to communicate with throughout out stay.
Welcome was fine, they worked around my arrival time.
The place is a nice unit, it could be better outfitted with toiletries. There wasn't any soap in the guest bathroom other than a partially used bar. Towels etc were fine.
Internet failed once, but was otherwise good.
The location is superlative. Directly on Ocean across from the pier. Balconies overlook Ocean itself, fully across the apartment.
Bedding was updated and comfortable.
The apartment was great.
The place was great. Perfect location and very comfortable. The wrap-around balcony was great for enjoying the view of the beach and Santa Monica pier. Would definitely recommend.
