Great spot, great apartment with a fantastic host. Will definitely stay here again
Loved the place! Awesome hosts!
Aina`s apartment was just great and so was Aina. Really flexible and nice person. Would definately recommend to all.
We were a family of four staying at this lovely apartment. The location could not have been better! The underground parking was a snap and we always felt safe and comfortable. When in Santa Monica, we didn't even need a car. We walked to the beach, pier, restaurants, etc. The only thing we missed was a toaster, but everything else is provided.
Communications was great with Aina and her mom, who was the one who let us in. having parking was clutch. The place was 2 blocks away from the start of the third street promenade and 3 small blocks away from the ocean. Really great location. The place is definitely just for renting - pretty bare boned in terms of dishes / pots / pans. I wouldn't count on being able to cook there. But definitely has coffee, tea, salt, pepper for something super basic. Aina supplies you with towels and bath products.
Great location!!!! Secure Parking. Everything is in walking distance. Thanks so much.
Aina's apartment is quite large, perfectly clean, and in a Santa Monica location that is un-beatable - near Wilshire Blvd., Whole Foods, a bakery, and 3 blocks from the beach. Aina was a very responsive and a perfectly attentive host. The deal-closer is definitely the parking spot, in the underground garage - what a great convenience. I took my friends on a long bike ride on the beach (we walked to the bike rental, of course), and they recall it as the favorite part of our 6 day road trip. I very much recommend staying here.
Great location. No issues collecting key. Apartment was clean and as advertised. Could do with more equipment in the kitchen (ie. water glasses, a toaster). Recommended.
Heart of Santa Monica? Yes.
By the beach? Yes (coupla blocks away)
Two blocks from Wilshire? Check.
Easy stroll to the Promenade and it's shops? Yup.
This simply appointed apartment is low on frills, but high on location, cleanliness and a wonderful hostess/proprietor named Aina. Aina was cool and accommodating, including some flexibility with the check out time since no one was booked after me. And don't underestimate the value of the garage parking.
Neighborhood was quiet.
Bed was comfortable, bathroom was well equipped for a daytripper like me with shampoo, conditioner, etc. (I flew down for one night from Seattle, with carry on only).
While I didn't have a need this trip, I appreciated there was a desk that could have served as a virtual office, were I staying longer.
All in all, an enjoyable spot I'd consider returning to.
Decent beach rental. Great location
