Happy with this selection

  • 4 of 5
We were considering renting a hotel room, but did not want to deal with having to get the car from a valet every time we go out and wanted a kitchen for breakfast and a washer dryer. We rented Upper Dudley with some trepidation after reading the poor review, below. It's probably good that we read it though, since it set our expectations low. Given our low expectations, we were pleasantly surprised. The location was great. We rented four bikes and used them most every day to ride the Venice and Santa Monica beach trail. Abbott Kinney and Main Street were within walking distance. We walked around at night with no problems. It was easy in and out. It was great having a parking spot. The wireless internet worked great, although cell phone reception for our AT&T phones was poor. We found the people at Globe to be very helpful. For example, we purchased sporting tickets and they let us email them to the office and pick up the printouts to bring to the game. The place was the right size for our family of four, although it could have easily accommodated two more. We like having a washer and dryer and kitchen on site., all of which worked fine The unit is old and not luxurious. Another reviewer used the word “shabby” and that is probably accurate. But the king sized bed was comfortable and the kids liked their beds too. The main rooms were clean, although there was some dust under the beds and dirt on windowsills, so not immaculate, but fine. The appliances and kitchen are older and dated, but served our needs. We did not find anything to be in disrepair. No dishwasher, but we really only ate breakfast there. There are a lot of homeless people in Venice, Santa Monica and the entire LA area, you will see homeless walking around the alley when you pull in and out and the Venice Beach area is a little "seedy". We kept the gate to the property locked and had a few issues getting the gate unlocked a few times, but the Globe people were helpful and guided us through. It took us under an hour to get to Disney, 45 minutes to get to Universal Studios, an hour to the Rose Bowl, and we biked to Santa Monica, so it was a central location for everything. (Of course everything in LA has to do with the traffic, so those times could be longer or shorter depending on when you leave.) So I was happy with the place and the location and thought it served our needs.

Fantastic location

  • 4 of 5
We rented this location for 5 girls on a girls trip and we were very happy with the property. The location was fantastic just a minute walk to the beach and Boardwalk. The location ended u being better than we imagined. Having the parking stall for our rental car was great and the back yard is sectioned into two parts so each rental has its own yard privacy. The unit was the perfect size and had all the amenities we needed except for a safe. There were several fans stored in the closet which was very helpful although they could use a cleaning. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance.

Misleading Photos and Disappointing Rental

  • 1 of 5
I rented this condo I found on VRBO and booked it for 6 nights. It is an upstairs 3 bedroom suite in a private house two story house.

The unit was in poor condition with worn and stained carpets and furniture; the paint was chipping and baseboards broken. The bathrooms still had hair in the shower and on the walls from another guest. The TV in the Master bedroom did not work and the washing machine was broken.

When we went to cook dinner we found no bowls; no cutting knives; an old dirty fry pan and gas barbeques that did not work properly. Even my kids called the place a dump.

We complained to Globe and they did address the kitchen issues but they never did get the washing machine fixed and the general poor condition of the unit was something we had to live with.

Upon our departure I twice tried to connect with someone at Globe homes to discuss our disappointment and no one of authority responded to our issues. Here is the email I got from their concierge person on my second communication but Dale never contacted me:

John,
I have passed this email to my manager. Dale Branch. He will be in touch with you when he returns to the Office Weds 4/2 in regards to the issues you experienced during your stay.
Joi

I never heard from Dale.

So I thought I better let you - a potential renter - know. I do not recommend this Dudley/Santa Monica unit or Renting from Globe Homes and Condos. Avoid disappoint and feeling like you paid too much for a place you will not be happy with.

Spacious, clean and great location, needs more longterm upkeep.

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I loved the convenience of the property and that we could walk to the beach. Also close to Whole Foods and Abbott Kinney shopping. The condo was very spacious even though the surrounding area is very crowded. When I left something very valuable to me - an irreplaceable journal - behind when we checked out, staff member Carolyn at Globe Homes searched for it and sent it to me promptly.

It is a little shabby inside though clean, the area rug in master bedroom has spots, and the baseboard in bathroom needs replacing. The bath/shower at other end of the apartment needs work and drains slowly. The sound insulation with the below apartment was very good, as long as they weren't in the shared yard. The gate with lock on it to the walkway also needs attention as we couldn't lock it behind us.

Beds and linens were great. Photos were accurate.

We loved the nearness of the beach, Rose Cafe, Cafe Gratitude, Whole Foods, and the shopping and restaurants on Abbott Kinney Blvd, esp Local 1204, with organic roasted meats and great freshly juiced delights. All were in walking distance. I would recommend this property to friends, with the caveat about it being run down.

Excellent except for the downstairs neighbours on nights 1 and 2

  • 4 of 5
We loved this property, the position was excellent and house itself was just as described. Comfortable and clean (although the insect screens do need a bit of a clean).

Our only problem with our 6 night stay was the downstairs neighbours on the first 2 nights. The first night they partied until 3am (not appreciated after our long haul flights from Australia). The 2nd night they came home at 2.30am, bought others back with them and partied until 6am with loud music and noise and banging doors.

The area itself isn't the quietest, but you have to expect that in this area, I guess and the convenience and location far outweigh any negatives with regard local noise.

I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
