Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2

Close to the beach, this quiet, comfortable space is equally suitable for a weekend getaway or an extended stay. A modern sectional couch faces the large HDTV with DirecTV; the dining area has a table that opens to seat 4, The granite counters continue into the efficient kitchenette with a two-burner gas cooktop, stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and a large stainless steel sink with full tiled backsplash. There is a complete set of dishes, cookware and glassware, making it easy to whip up a quick breakfast, make a picnic for the beach, or create a complete gourmet meal.

Large windows throughout provide treetop views and plenty of fresh ocean air. This conveniently located home is a 5-minute walk to Palisades Park overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Santa Monica beach. Stroll along the bluff at sunset, or just sit in the beautiful park and enjoy the view. There is easy beach access via a nearby pedestrian overpass; the sand is less than10 minutes away.You are a pleasant 15-minute walk to the 3rd Street Promenade and the heart of Santa Monica, bustling with shopping, 5-star dining, theaters, street performers and the authentic flavor of this beachside community. Don’t miss the world-famous Santa Monica Pier, home of Pacific Park – the only west coast amusement park on an ocean pier – and the historic Santa Monica Carousel.

If you are in the mood for more shopping, you are less than 15 minutes from the Montana Avenue shopping district, “Rodeo Drive West”, with endless boutiques, gourmet restaurants, shops and galleries. Inquire about bicycle rentals to get a different perspective, and ask about our last minute specials for that impromptu trip.The centrally located apartment makes a great ‘home base’ for exploring Venice, Malibu, Westwood, Hollywood, and beyond. Take a drive up the coast, head to the Santa Monica Mountains for a hike, visit the Venice Boardwalk for a one-of-a-kind experience, or make the short trip to the renowned Getty Museum; sample the diversity and excitement of the Westside. There is truly something for everyone here.

On May 12, 2015, the Santa Monica City Council adopted the Home-Sharing

Ordinance reiterating its ban on the rental of entire units as vacation rentals. (this is an exempt guest house where the owner lives in main house)

The Home-Sharing Ordinance also legalized the short term rental of a portion

of a person’s home when the host lives on-site throughout the visitor’s stay

and when the host obtains a business license. Hosts are also required to

collect and remit Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) if not collected and remitted

by the hosting platform. Our business license number is 216567

The only problem was the lack of comunication before my arrival, the phone number in airbnb site didn't answer, then we sent whatsapp mesages and someone gave us another phone number. After that we had to call this number, then you finally gave me the codes to get in the house, we were already in the front door, very worried.

I was in LA for a medical symposium, so I appreciate a confortable bed and a no noisy place. I found it in Palisades Studio.

Our stay was great! The vacation rental was perfectly described and therefore it met all our expectations! We would love to stay again! The place was clean, however it was lacking enough clean linens. There were only 3 clean bath towels for a five day stay for 2 adults. We're environmentalist, so we didn't mind reusing towels. However, it would have been nice to have more. And, the cleaning crew left behind some dirty linens in the closet. Other than that we had a terrific stay! Thank you, Global Homes!

Reviewer Comments:

Overall my stay was okay. The studio is clean and modern just as pictured and the location is wonderful. I had two issues that make me unsure I would rent the place again. The first was the windows. Not being able to see out the windows is creepy and makes the studio feel like a dungeon. I also felt unsecure at night as the light would shine in and I'd see shadows but couldn't see out the window to verify there was nothing out there! I highly suggest putting blinds on the front window in the living area. I also suggest fixing the light by the entrance. It would only come on while walking out. The alley is very dark at night and a spotlight turning on is not only necessary for safety but to put in the keycode! My last suggestion is to put up pictures that represent the window situation (and the fact that you can't see out of them).
