Michael and Lucia are the best hosts possible! They are so kind and generous and made me feel very welcome at their home. They provided me with suggestions and always checked in whether I needed anything. It felt like a home away from home staying with them. I really hope to be back!
Michael is a very engaging host. We felt welcomed
and well attended to. We had as much or little
privacy as we desired. The morning coffee and watermelon
(by request) were lovely. The emergency health issue was
all handled quickly and professionally. I highly recommend
this airbnb. The accommodations and the location
are fantastic too.
I had a wonderful experience staying in Mike's private room. The room description is spot on - the bed was so comfy and the bathroom was located just outside the bedroom door. Mike was very easy to work with and available to chat about Santa Monica, suggesting interesting things to see and do during my stay. Ruso, his adorable cat, was an added bonus!
Thanks Elizabeth, you are easy to get along with and are welcome back anytime.

I can't say enough about Lucia and Michael and this amazing property and location! In less than two days I felt like family. If not for Michael I would have gotten lost in my travels - he made sure I knew what route, bus and steps I took to get where I wanted to go, and even followed up to see that I was ok. Lucia's warm hospitality was only equaled by her warm personality. Michael and Lucia were such a joy to stay with - the stories we shared will be forever etched in my journal and I can't wait to visit them again. I even subconsciously deliberately left my slippers there!
A home away from home! Felt like an old friend. Michael picked me up and Lucia served me some delicious sicilian Minestrone and real italian coffee! Thanks for two wonderful days in Santa Monica.
Thanks for the friend compliment!
We await your next creation. Let us know what you are up to!
All the best,
Mike and Lucia
Mike and Lucia are not only lovely and funny people but also great hosts who made me feel home at the other end of the world! They are both very caring people who make the live-together very easy and comfortable. As soon as you enter the apartment you can feel the good vibes coming from their european and american mixture of vitality!:) The flat is located near Montana Street (3min walk) where you can find cute cafes, restaurants, shops and cheap beauty salons. The heart of Santa Monica is also not that far away and can be reached within a 15-25 min easy walk which is very cool. The bed is huge and very comfy, I slept so well and have to admit that I miss it a little...The own bathroom is also a great advantage and gives you the privacy you need. Their third roomie is their speeking cat Russo who is very lovely and very tame. Mike knows his neighboorhood very well and gave me some good advices where to go! Thanks you two and I hope we stay in touch!
Bettina, we loved having you. We felt comfortable and relaxed with you right away and that feeling grew as you stayed. You are welcome anytime.
Russo says hi (meow, but we know what that means)!
Michael has been an incredible guest.
He´s very friendly, fun and easy going. During our stay in L.A. he helped us a lot by showing us places to visit and have fun.
From the first moment we felt in our own place. We´re really grateful to Michael for treating us so well. We´re very lucky for having had the opportunity to meet Michael. He´s a great host (but a better person).
He will be always welcome in our home.
I just love to stay at Michael's place, besides he and his girlfriend Lucia are great people. The room is to comfy, the bad is also very comfortable and I slept very well. Although the room is facing the building inside patio, it is to quiet. Michael's place has a good atmosphere as well good vibrations, it is a home not a flat indeed. During my stays I was sick and he was very nice helping me. Their cat Russo it is very cute, I loved to chat with it early in the morning. They provide the basics needs like shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, which I found great because sometimes we end up forgetting something.
If you are going to Santa Monica I truly recommend Michael's place, if you want to have a comfy stay, besides is close to the main Santa's Monica attractions.
Excellent place! I stayed there for four nights and was really impressed. Michael and his girlfriend were excellent hosts and made me feel home. It was in a safe and quiet neighborhood within walking distance of the beach and the shops in Santa Monica. The room was comfortable and cozy. I highly recommend this!
