Great experience, nice location, room gets a little warm at times but overall everything was good.
I truly enjoyed staying at Marina's place in Santa Monica. The location is fabulous, wedged between Wilshire and Montana. You can easily walk to Walgreen's Pharmacy, Whole Foods Market, various great shopping on both Wilshire and Montana.
Additionally, the room is very clean and extremely well done. It suited my needs perfectly. In suite bath and a separate entrance that is easy and safe to access, plus a refrigerator and a dishwasher.
Also, since the city of Santa Monica requires a permit to park your vehicle, Marina provides the garage at no extra cost. This is a great perk.
My experience with Marina was very favorable and I would stay there again.
Thank you Robert,
we will fix a light at the door.
There is actually a fan available for the tenants.
We also provide the tenants with the street parking permit, so if the car is not fitting in the garage it can be parked on the street.
Unfortunately, we regret booking with Marina. First of all, she did not provide accurate information about the apartment. It is a basement apartment and is difficult to access, also is not as private as disclosed.
Secondly, there was terrible sewage rupture underneath her apartment which caused us to pull out and seek a hotel option. The rupture spilled sewage throughout the apartment and soaked some suitcases. Even after being informed, Marina acted very slowly on the very urgent issue and left the communication to her friend/neighbor/cousin (still unclear on this relationship) who was shocked and said he wasn't supposed to be so involved in the process. We understand this was out of her control, but her responsiveness to the situation was concerning.
When we tried to communicate a refund, that process was extremely slow as well; it seemed like she was putting all of the responsibility on us even though it was her residence that had an extreme issue.
Great location, and very comfortable, nicely done unit.
Had a great stay in the apartment. The location is excellent and the amenities were all in order. There is a small kitchenette but no stove so you can't cook anything. However there are great take-out places and restaurants close by. I didn't meet Marina, but she had arranged for the tenants upstairs to meet me and they were extremely helpful. Overall the apartment was perfect for my needs
Great hosts and very accomodating. Perfect location and setup

Marina is always a wonderful hostess! It is a pleasure to stay in this location.
Marina's apartment is exactly as described and pictured... very convenient location and so cute. I didn't get to meet Marina, but Boris was very helpful and let me into the apartment when I arrived. And the on-street parking pass was great to have!
A great experience!
