this rental worked out well for us. Jeri very nice to work with. As other reviews have stated, close to the pier and promenade, which didnt really excite us, but handy if you like. We did rent bikes at the pier and biked to Manhattan Beach for lunch. We had a car, we did use the bus to get to the Getty Villa, very convenient bus to get there right on Ocean Avenue. Driving to the Getty Center, Runyon Canyon, Will Rogers State Park and Malibu was not a hassle at all. We are walkers, so walked to Montana Ave a couple of nights for dinner, and to Santa Monica Seafood on Wilshire. Always felt safe, but was surprised by the number of people smoking their heads off, and we are from Detroit, a blue collar town with a lot of smokers. So much for the ordinance prohibiting smoking within 20 ft of an entryway or building. A few hooks in the bathroom for hanging towels would be helpful, we used way too many towels because they kept slipping off the door knobs. We didnt cook any meals, but it was nice having a fridge for breakfast food. Great internet connection.
