This property has it all. A beautiful garden, comfortable and clean apartments, proximity to the beach and shops/bars/cafes, and even an outdoor rainfall shower. You scarcely need a car while you're here -- everything is reachable by foot or on the bike. The property is lovingly maintained by the owner. The one-bedroom unit I rented came with high quality towels, linens, and kitchen supplies. If you come with your clothes, everything else is ready for you to start living your Santa Monica life. The evenings are quiet as it is located on a one-way street set back from the main shopping street. The neighborhood has it all: yoga, upscale cafes/restaurants/bars, boutiques, and a beach with 25+ uninterrupted miles of bike path. A Whole Foods is nearby, but try the local organic produce store and Sunday farmers market, too. The owner goes out of his way to make sure you are comfortable. While there is no garage, on-street parking with the permit (provided) is no hassle. If you are looking for a respite by the beach with access to amazing restaurants and nightlife, this is your place. I could not recommend it more highly!
