Joe is a very host. He waited for us when we arrived late ftom the airport.
He is very helpful when we need information.
His place is a very good location close from everything.
Joe's place is definitely in a good location, and he was nice but not around much when I was there. We had a bit of a problem with the arranged check-in, but there is a cafe very nearby where I was able to wait until he got home. Amenities like toilet paper and clean towels were not at hand and had to be requested, but I had a great visit in Santa Monica anyway! Megan
Loved the location of the place, close to the beach, close to the shopping area. The room was spacious enough for two, you could probably squeeze in one or two more friends in there. The bed was comfy, just that the place was a little dusty. Other than that all was great. Joe is more than accommodating, given that we booked the place one day before checking in. I'll definitely book this place again!
The last time I stayed in Santa Monica, it was at a local cheap motel on a busy street in a seedy area. What a mistake! It was dirty, I never left any valuables in the room when I was out, and I never really felt safe in the room while I was there. At Joe's place, there was never any worry about safety or privacy. I could walk the 4 blocks to the Pacific Palisades every morning and did not have to pay the $2.00/hr to park there. Also, it is just 2 blocks from the 3rd street promenade. The room is simple, but met my needs. With the fan and window, I was always comfortable. The bed was comfortable and the shower in the private bathroom had good water pressure and lots of hot water. Joe was cordial and not at all intrusive. A bonus was the Panera Bread right across the street. The only inconvenience was the daily search for a parking space; Sometimes I got lucky and there was a spot within a block. Sometimes I had to drive around for some time and wound up several blocks away. Overall, this was a great solution to the problem of the incredibly high cost of staying in Santa Monica. The cost was much less than the cheapest (and really dangerous and unsavory) alternatives and the location was great.
If I have to go to Santa Monica again, I will try to stay at Joe's again.
Joe replied very fast and waited for us to arrive but he was not very keen on talking to us. We had a seperate bedroom with a queen size bed, but unfortunetaly the room was very dirty and the bedsheets seemed to be used before. The entire appartemenet appeared messy and the bathroom also was not cleaned up for quite along time.
I would not recommend staying there since we paid 70 USD which is way to much for what you get there.
Joe's great. Location is perfect. Very close to beach. Place is nice. Recommend.
Joe, very accommodating, great conversationalist, and a perfect place, tv, parking, bed, private room close to the 3rd street promenade
really interesting guy. sadly only stayed for 6 hours or so
GREAT location, super comfy bed, nice host. We'd recommend it!
