Walking distance to beach, quiet and well maintained, perfect for the two of us and our dog. No hiccups, owner responded immediately to a text inquiry when we needed clarification. Comfortable bed, nice shower head. Warning though! If you are from out of town (we are from Northern California) wear your sandals on the beach...my feet returned covered in oil spots! This had nothing to do with the unit, of course, just a heads up 8^). Great spots to eat, hang out and people watch, not far from Santa Monica shopping, all in all a great short vacation enhanced by a great place to stay. Thank you!
