Location was fantastic. It was a little bit difficult to find parking on the street as it fills up quite quickly, despite having a permit. There was a rather intimidating dog that barked every time I walked through the gate to go in and out of the property.

Great place! Literally less than 5 min away from the beach!

The location is great, really close to the beach. Small shop for drinks nearby. Santa Monica's a lovely area to visit and it's good to be so close to everything. The host replied promptly to any of our questions. The photos make the apartment look more appealing than it is. It is a very basic place to stay with minimal facilities. Not really ideal for a long stay. It wasn't particularly clean. It is quite pricey for what you get, it's the location you pay for.

A great location. Close to both Main Street and the beach. Good description and help from Travis. Not glamorous but very comfortable and functional.

Fantastic place and does what it says on the tin. Rough and ready, do not expect luxury but it does the job and the location is perfect. Travis was also lovely and was very helpful whenever I had an issue! Would recommend!

Location is fantastic but that is about the only positive thing. The entrance is not very inviting - need to open a rickety gate and then watch not to step on dog poo. The studio smelt damp and we had to ask Travis to switch the gas off since there was a smell of gas so didn't feel safe. There is no kettle available which is quite a basic thing I would have thought. The blinds and curtains are either broken or hanging on for dear life. The shower door is very fragile and you need to fight it open. We weren't looking for luxury but did expect the basics to be in place. It rained overnight and water seeped in from the floor. Had to mop it up and some of our things got wet which wasn't very nice especially as we were trying to pack! In his defence, Travis did offer a partial refund and honoured this. But a great disappointment all round.

This apartment was perfectly located in Santa Monica as it was within walking distance of everywhere we wanted to go; in particular being only 5 minutes from the beach. Travis was a friendly host who offered to recommend restaurants to us if we required it. Due to being a converted garage that isn't lived in on a day-to-day basis the apartment lacks a homely feel (the photos are a bit misleading) as well as home essentials such as bin bags, hand wash, extra toilet roll etc. and there isn't much natural light. Unfortunately we found the apartment significantly dirtier than other Airbnbs we have stayed in e.g. visible hair on the floor. We were also disappointed that the cleaner was at the apartment when we checked-in despite it being an hour past the check-in time. Overall I would bear in mind that the Airbnb is a garage and therefore is not the most pleasant place to spend a significant period of time but is great if you just need a place to sleep before or after hitting the beach.

Originally from South Africa, I moved to Santa Monica for the sun and surf.

I can let you know about all the hidden gems of Santa Monica or just provide a great place to stay.

Always preferring to stay in rental homes than hotels when traveling, I've really enjoyed sharing my beach abode with travelers.
