Spacious three story open architectural loft with large private rooftop garden, exposed brick and internal skylights throughout. Located one mile from the ocean and the third street promenade. Unique space with fabulous art and charm. My place is great for couples, people on business trips, or adventurers who found themselves in Los Angeles.

The space

Hello! Welcome to the Ocean Art Loft in Santa Monica, and thank you for considering my home for your stay in this beautiful city! The loft is truly a unique space. Three story open architectural art loft with internal skylights throughout, exposed brick, two functional fireplaces, and a giant private rooftop deck with grill, daybed, and fire pit.

My loft is listed on Airbnb under a separate listing for large groups (up to 6 guests) who want to rent both bedrooms and have people sleep in the common area. This listing is for people who are only interested in renting the small cozy room that is attached to the common area on the first floor.

The smaller room is located on the first floor and is connected to the large open common area that has two story ceilings and a ton of natural sunlight. The room is ocean facing, so you get that amazing ocean breeze, along with a thriving bamboo stand just outside your window, so you feel like you are in a bamboo forest next to the ocean!

Guest access

You and your guest will have access to the small airbnb room, the common living area that is just outside the guest bedroom, both bathrooms, the kitchen, and the entire rooftop deck and all its amenities.

Interaction with guests

My roommate Matt and I occupy the master bedroom on the second floor, so you will see us around the large loft. We are both easy going, active, respectful, and busy with work and school and travel a lot.

Other things to note

The loft has two cats and one large dog.

Anyone lucky enough to stay at this incredible location will be perfectly situated - 30min walk to the seafront and 20min drive (without traffic) to Hollywood, Culver City, In-N-Out and pretty much anywhere else you'd need to be. With local grocery stores including a Ralph's, Whole Foods and a friendly 7/11 within a 10min walk from the apartment, this simply adds to the value of staying somewhere with a beautiful, amply equipped & clean kitchen as well as a huge fridge with generous cupboard space provided to store food/edibles... Besides the fact that this 3-floor pad is stunning and perfectly located, the hosts are simply incredibly friendly and accommodating to any reasonable needs/requests. Whilst I spent my stay in the smaller bedroom, this wasn't a problem for me at all, as the bed was super comfortable and all I did was sleep in it.... the shower and bathrooms were kept extremely clean during my stay - and at no point did I regret my choice. For anyone planning on visiting the city and staying in rather than go out, the house has comfy sofa space to chill, as well as a solid entertainment setup and a very spacious and well-furnished roof terrace. One thing I hate about going on holiday is making 'holiday friends'... you know, the sort of people you meet once, become (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) friends and proceed to carry on with life after returning home - with every intention of unfriending them and never seeing them again... Not these guys!! I can't wait to revisit Santa Monica with the sole purpose of staying and hanging out with these awesome guys. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere nicer besides a hotel - and hotels are three times the price with negligible amenities in comparison. If you're allergic to cats or dogs, be weary. I'm not, so to me, there was nothing better than coming back to the house to find my furry friends awaiting their snuggle. Last, but by no means least... Having read a number of reviews from other travellers explaining that their accommodation was not as described, or their hosts were draconian or dull, I will be the first to say that all my expectations were exceeded and any worries I had prior to check in (at an ungodly hour of 3am due to a delayed flight) were swiftly dissolved by the hosts' incredible display of warmth, homeliness and friendship. In summation, this will be the first place I look to book upon my return to LA!!

Staying at Stephanie's was perfect! The place is absolutely stunning; it's artsy, hip, clean, and comfortable. I felt like I was staying at a friend's place as opposed to a stranger's. Stephanie and Matt are excellent hosts - super friendly and were quick to offer recommendations on things to do around their area (which is in a GREAT location!) I walked everywhere - to the beach, to the pier, to restaurants and nightlife on Main St. Check-in and checkout were also quick and seamless. I'd stay again in a heartbeat! :)
