Recommend you stay here!
Outdated , dingy unit, Disappointing to say the least
Overall run down and undesirable: dirty surfaces throughout entire unit, t.v., mirrors, walls, old dirty appliances, mini frig unusable with thick build up of frost, broken coffee pot, one coffee mug, no wine glasses, stained wood counters, you would never cook with any of the available cookware, hard extremely uncomfortable bed, outdated crappy furniture, no ac or heat, no cleaning materials or dish towels, no extra garbage bags Bad karma . You won’t feel good in this place unless you’re a scruffy college kid. Tried to work out some sort of compensation for all our inconveniences. She claimed I was a dirty guest! She should check my stats. I’ve been renting with HomeAway for years. Don’t believe those other reviews.
Lillian had problems even before she arrived at the property; she asked to check in early, but when she didn't show up at the requested time, I contacted her and she was having problems at the car rental place. In the days following, she requested me to come to the property and check for packages she was expecting.
I informed her that there is an additional freezer below if you she needed more freezer space. The refrigerator is a new small, fully functional apartment size refrigerator as shown in the pictures.There are several coffee mugs, but she requested more so I brought her more. The apartment has both heater and AC, beds and most furniture, the cookware are all about one year old. The apartment was clean when she arrived, but when I entered the apartment after she left, I was met with a disgusting smell of
cigarette smoke and spoiled food. Needless to say, the apartment was as dirty as it smelled.
I had to delay the arrival of the following guest due to the amount of time to clean and air out the apartment.
Lillian stayed the entire length of her reservation, and only after her departure she complained and requested a refund.
Great location and accommodations for the price
I stayed at the property with my 2 kids ages 10 and 11. The owner was very helpful and took care of any needs. The location and proximity to the beach is just great and the available parking is a must have if you rent a car.
The only downsides, as some have noted, is that the unit has no central A/C, and this is only a problem to those not accustomed to it. Also, the biggest challenge for me was street noise, which was not really that bad, but I live in a suburban neighborhood that is dead silent at night, so it was somewhat tough for me.
Regardless, I would stay here again for all of the good reasons mentioned.
Thanks for sharing your space
The beach house was great! Our kids had a ton of fun playing in the waves and hanging out on the pier, both of which were just a short walk. The house had all of the things we needed and being able to do laundry was super awesome. The only thing that was not very good was the wifi, we ended up making our own hot spots with our phones because the wifi would go out every few minutes. That being said the remainder of the house and amenities were fantastic. We are looking forward to coming back. Thanks.
Great location, 200meters from the beach, good bicycles, free parking
We enjoyed two great weeks close the Santa Monica beach, with the bycles you reach easily downtown with the shops, markets, cinemas and good restaurants, also pubs with live european soccer games. The nearby mainstreet is very lively, Venice and Abbot Kinney very near. An ideal spot to experience Santa Monica and places nearby ! We recommend very much ! Also because the owners are very nice, friendly and uncomplicated.
Such an amazing cute house!
My wife and I stayed here for a week in January 2018 on our babymoon as a last minute getaway before our twins are born. The apartment is located in the back upstairs above the garage and has plenty of space!!! Everything was super clean and the property manager Ingelise was super nice and helpful the entire time. The property is located a block from the beach and very close walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants in downtown Santa Monica. The area itself is very safe and we had no issues getting around or parking (a spot in included). The house even has 2 bikes you can use to cruise up and down the boardwalk as well!!!
We suggest you park your car and walk to all the wonderful attractions, both natural and man made. We are surrounded by beautiful beachfront, parks, and amazing night-life with great bars, pubs and dining with dinner music, jazz, the Santa Monica Pier, and Venice Boardwalks. Go tourist or go local. Just go. Also convenient to coastal attractions, amusement parks, outlet centers and the like by car. Best of both worlds.
