About the Property

2 BD, 1 BA XL Craftsman Loft 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. It a safe, quiet and in very convenient area. 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 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:

All rates less than 31 days are subject to local taxes, a $199 cleaning fee per stay and for each week here, a $500 security deposit, and the purchase of the $5,000 VRBO sponsored insurance policy, current premium = $99, Local taxes are an additional 14%.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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!
