About the property

2 BD, 1 BA XL Craftsman Loft-Coveted Location in Santa Monica! 5 Star/1st Class

I have a private, quiet & elegantly furnished luxurious guest/suite. It is large, loft like and as comfortable as home. It is a perfect spot for everything you need and anywhere you want to go in Santa Monica. And my place is licensed by the city for short term rentals (which are otherwise not legal in Santa Monica) and I comply with all local laws.

One recent guest, best described it as... "it feels like being at a hotel but also at a friend's or family's house". Another experienced VRBO'er shared..."it was better than expected and the nicest we ever stayed in...it had everything we needed to be comfortable"!

Walk to everything - no need for a car -- Great restaurants, Beach, The Santa Monica Pier, The Promenade, 3rd Street, Venice, Main Street, Farmers Markets, "locals only" new Wilshire Boulevard great restaurant options, Montana Blvd., Broad Theatre/Stage, UCLA Hospital - Everything is easy by walking, biking or taking an UBER/Taxi or Bus!....

Enjoy the best beach city in the world - We make it easy, fun and relaxing by providing:

Local tips/suggestions better than any concierge ("which makes sense as the fancy hotels' concierges don't live here" per a recent guest!), Bikes, beach towels/bags & even Tommy Bahama backpack Beach chairs with built in coolers and a place to come back to and feel totally comfortable! Sit in front of the fireplace and warm up from a day at the beach! Then get spoiled with Luxury linens/towels, fresh Egyptian cotton robes, toothbrushes/toothpaste and all the necessary toiletries AND a housekeeper 1X week, memory foam beds, central air/heat, fans, Grohe Rainshower & Handheld, Nest Thermostat & Nest Protect Smoke & CO2 protectors, gourmet Kitchen-Aid BBQ with Infrared, Keurig coffee maker, iron/ironing board, business center with Brother multifunction printer, stationary/office supplies welcome amenities and more!

Everything you need to feel like home - because it is! There is a wonderful library of Novels and "Coffee Table" Books, board & card games (Monopoly, Jenga or Uno anyone?!) for when you get bored of whatever is on DirecTV, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime or NFL Ticket on the suite's large flatcreen TVs!

Santa Monica Home Sharing Business License #215406. Here is the link to the City website: http://www.smgov.net/departments/finance/buslic/lookup/

What makes this apartment unique

I have a license to rent short term and long term. This is a requirement in Santa Monica. While not the lowest cost, I provide the best amenities and a value for the money that few else can deliver. Read the reviews! They are objective and real and all 5 star. If you are like me, I am picky about where I would stay and I am somewhat choosy about who I have stay here!

Great place for a a Santa Monica getaway

  • 5 of 5

Superb choice. This unit is near enough to walk to just about anything you would want to do on the north side of the 10 and far away enough to be out of the hub-bub. Two of my favorites (Philz coffee and Benny's Tacos & Rotisserie Chicken) are only 2 blocks away; the Saturday farmer's market is a few more blocks; and the Pacific Palisades park is another couple blocks farther. But the most charming aspect of this place is Scot, your host, who lives upstairs. He doesn't believe in half-measures. At a hotel or other unit, you might get 2 bottles of water as a welcome gift. Scot sets out 6 bottles of Fiji water, and a large bowl of fruit, then surprises you with cookies and doughnuts during your stay. He promptly responds to any questions or requests, and has a wealth of knowledge about the area and great recommendations on where to eat.

The unit itself was quite comfortable, with a leather sofa in the living room that allows for each person to recline individually and plenty of room to spread out. The bathroom was big and modern, and the two bedrooms had comfy beds. There are chairs on the front porch and a cute backyard area. Off-street parking was available, but we always found street parking within a block of the unit.

Superb location and comfortable digs shine with all-star host

  • 5 of 5

This well-appointed unit worked perfectly for my family (my wife and two daughters, ages 7 and 9). The location allowed us to walk to the beach and promenade for outings and groceries, and to hop on the 10 for our forays outside of Santa Monica (to the Museum of Science, Griffith Park, etc). Everything we needed was already there (toothpaste, fresh soap, etc.), including some great touches--fruit, wine and chocolate (!). The photos are reflective of the space-- large, comfortable and inviting rooms (a functional if small kitchen). Everything is neat and clean. The juice for the five star rating is the host. Scott went out of his way to welcome us and provide *fantastic* recommendations for outings, food, and activities. Everything we did per his suggestion was a winner and he made our visit a very special experience. We are now at a second VRBO site in San Diego and while the unit is great, we miss Scott.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Ditto to everything everyone else had said in their reviews. Spotless, spacious, comfortable, convenient.

We loved the fresh fruit bowl, wine, chocolate, water and those donuts were to die for!! There was coffee and tea to hold us until we could do some grocery shopping which is only a short walk away. We took Scott's advice and only rented a car when necessary. Walking, Lyft and Uber are the best way to get around . When we did have a car or a guest, parking was available to us on the property.

No detail was overlooked. I can't think of 1 thing that Scott could have done or supplied to have made the place any better.

I highly recommend this rental. If I come back I would absolutely stay here again.

A great location and fantastic host

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return. The property and home are incredibly relaxed and quiet and just a short walk to everything you want to see in Santa Monica. Scott is a generous host and we would highly recommend booking for a wonderful stay.

EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house is excellent and facilities are also very convenient to use. Scott is a real gentleman, very considerate. It feel very good to get help when we need, especially this is our first time to use VRBO. By the way, the donuts he provided is the best donuts we have ever had.
