Best welcome to the US!
"After a 14 hour flight from Australia, my husband and I were tired and a little disoriented. But we had no trouble finding our way into the cool peaceful bedroom of this apartment after a short taxi ride from LAX--Tina made it all so easy! After a few hours of restful sleep, we went exploring, and that's when we realised what a great choice this apartment had been. It's in such a beautiful neighbourhood, and so close to everything. We walked down to the beach, along the waterfront, and watched the sunset from under the pier. Then we wandered up to Third Street Promenade and found a great Mexican rstaurant for tapas and margaritas, then dinner. And then it was an easy walk back to the apartment. The apartment itself is beautifully appointed, in a lovely building with only a few other guests--who we never saw or heard. Over the next few days, we walked a few blocks down Montana Ave and did some shopping at the Pavilions supermarket (wine and antipasto mostly for us!), had a great Italian dinner at Spumoni on Montana (delicious gnocchi!), and even enjoyed a wonderful massage at The Massage Place on Montana. Our most memorable meal was probably brunch at Huckleberry Cafe on Wilshire Blvd--Green Eggs and Ham to die for! And every day we made our way to the beach or Palisades Park (two blocks away) to watch the sun melt into the Pacific. Magical!
Honestly, we were only looking for a few quiet days in Santa Monica to recover from the flight--a jumping off point for our five week trip to the US--but instead we found ourselves enchanted by this homey apartment, in a gorgeous neighbourhood, wishing we had more time to explore LA from here. Next time I guess :) Truly the best welcome to the US we could have asked for."

"We stayed here for three nights as a base to explore LA. The villa is clean and the best equipped rental we have stayed in with all the kitchen equipment and amenities you could want down to thoughtful touches such as coffee, food seasonings and washing powder. The location is 15 minutes walk from Venice Beach which makes access to the beach without needing the car very easy. Lots of good restaurant options within 2 minute to 15 minute walk time and 30 mins to 1 hour driving time to main LA attractions depending on traffic. Ross is highly professional in his booking process and full of local recommendations. Highly recommended."

"This serene , clean, artfully and exceptionally well appointed setting, just off Montana and within
sight of the ocean is perfectly situated. Paradise and Third is professionally and responsively staffed,
with full amenities and an array of thoughtfulness which when encountered, becomes a space and
place of peacefulness to return to again and again. Every aspect of the accommodations was exceptional
and memorable, and we truly were welcomed and felt at home ."

"My family and I rented this charming home in Santa Monica over the Christmas holidays.
It was everything that a family of four could wish for. It has a very private front yard, two bedrooms and two baths. The kitchen had all modern appliances and was everything we needed to prepare a Christmas banquet. The living room had a Samsung Smart TV and we were able to plug in our Apple TV module and get even more viewing options. The location of the house was only a ten minute walk down to the iconic walk along the beach. All in all we were very happy with the accommodations and recommend the house to one and all."
