I was born in New York City and work in real estate. I love living in Santa Monica and this location is unprecedented. Whoever chooses to stay here will know what I mean!
This place had an amazing view of the Pier and was a quick walk across the street to the beach! We rented bikes and enjoyed a long morning ride along the ocean, stopped in a quaint little restaurant for breakfast, and shopped along the Venice Beach vendors. There was plenty of room for the six of us. We were right in the heart of Santa Monica shopping, dinning, and board walk. What a lucky find!
The location can't be beat! Right in the heart of things. Plenty of restaurants close by. The Santa Monica Pier is right across the street. 3rd Street Promenade a few blocks away. Steven was quick to respond and easy to work with.
New and more towels and bedding + a deep cleaning would take this apartment from a 4 star to 4 1/2 - 5 star rating.
Great location for walking everywhere, easy to drive to & park, everything we needed for a great stay. Thank you Steven.
The apartment is in the best location of Santa Monica with a great view of the pier and the beach. The Big Bus Tour has a stop in front of the apartment and 3rd St Promenade is only a couple of streets away. Also, there are lots of restaurants nearby. Many buses pass by that can take you to almost any point in LA if you don't have a car, but if you do, two parking places are available in the same building.
The apartment is very nice, rooms are very comfortable and there is a big balcony that can be accessed from all the rooms.
Communication with Steven was very good and he answered to every email in the same day. Luis who works in the building handled us the keys on our arrival. I must say he was also very kind and explained us everything we needed to know about the laundry room, shops in the area, etc.
The only negative thing I could say is that if you are planning to cook and eat in the apartment, the kitchen might not have all the cutlery you need. But still, I must say the place is 100% recomendable and with no doubt we would choose it again in a next visit to Santa Monica. We all enjoyed the apartment.
The beautiful and in-great-condition apartment was clean, accessible, quite spacious and comfortable - we appreciated all amenities! (It was well-stocked and we were able to find towels and utensils right away). A printed sheet with directions/instructions for our stay was very helpful.
The location was fantastic - next to great restaurants and a short walk from Third Street Promenade and the BEST view of the ocean and the Santa Monica Pier. SUPER comfy beds! Can't wait to visit again!
This place was great! Location was stellar! Absolutely perfect.
Great location and good sized units with comfortable beds and plenty of space. Lots of restaurants and nightlife within a few blocks.
We had a great time in Santa Monica at Steven's apartment. Had all the amenities (except washing machine), however our 6 night stay did not maybe warrant the washing machine. Apartment was so convenient to restaruants, Pier and great fashion shopping. Beds were comfortable and even though we were on the main esplanade, we had no traffic noise. Great say, would recommend this apartment. Karon, China.
Steven's place is sweet! You can't beat the location and the direct view of the ocean from the living room and bed room. Steven was always there whenever I needed anything. This definitely falls into one of the greatest stays that I've experienced so far....
First time using AirBnB and was very pleased with the overall experience. Steven was great to follow up with instructions on checking in and out. The apartment location is AMAZING and views are terrific. It was spotless when I got there and was nicer than the pictures do it justice.
Another great benefit that I wasn't expecting is due to the proximity to the pier there was a constant line of cabs directly outside the front door so that made me not having a car absolutely painless.
