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."
