Overview

Santa Monica Condo Rental Photos and Description

This fabulous unit is close enough to downtown to enjoy all that downtown Santa Monica has to offer -- world class shopping, dining, Santa Monica Pier and beach – but is just far enough from the center to enjoy a local neighborhood feeling.

It is a quiet, private, 2nd floor unit with a patio furnished with a darling bistro table and chairs and maturing potted plants. Two master bedrooms with newer, California KING sized beds with high thread count linens, down comforters, lots of fluffy pillows and iphone clock radios. Two full baths with an abundance of high quality towels, soap, hair dryers and toiletries to get you started.

The interior is decorated with modern, beachy furnishings, white plantation shutters throughout, lovely original watercolor paintings, a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher, microwave, gas stove/oven and an in-unit washer/dryer and supplies to get you started.

This urban retreat also boasts a large, flat screen TV with cable, wireless internet and a land line for your convenience. Best suited for adults as the unit is not child proofed.

Enjoy a safe and vibrant neighborhood that is a “walker’s paradise” with a 95% “walkability” rating. Around the corner, you can join the locals at Bay Cities, the best Italian deli and market in the city as well as Shabu, Shabu Japanese, Bodega Wine bar, Pono Gourmet Burgers and Swingers 24 diner.

This condo is also located on a designated bicycle route and has easy access to city transit and the major car routes into Los Angeles, all of the beach cities and beyond. The new Expo Light Rail – walking distance from the unit -- will be ready to board in 2015/16.

There is street parking and we provide 2 City of Santa Monica permits for your personal use.

Why Cynthia Gates chose Santa Monica

The unit is close enough to downtown to enjoy all that downtown has to offer -- world class shopping, dining, Santa Monica Pier and beach -- but, it is just far enough from the center to enjoy a quiet, local neighborhood feeling.

What makes this condo unique

I'd be delighted to recommend a couple of great spots for a variety of food, drinks and attractions, all of which are within a few blocks walking distance from the property. Coffee: Top-rated Funnel Mill café just steps to Broadway; Breakfast, lunch or dinner - Swingers restaurant around the corner; Tar & Roses; California Shabu Shabu (Japanese restaurant) on the corner; join the locals at Bay Cities, the best Italian deli/market in the city. Bodega Wine Bar; Hosteria del Piccolo for a great pizza or wonderful true Italian pasta on 6th. Want make your own meal in our full kitchen, Vons Supermarket is only 2 blocks away...don't forget your own grocery bag. I can recommend more...just ask!

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a beautiful place! I was in for a week to shop with my daughter for her wedding dress, a success! Stayed here with the groom's mother and had such a lovely time.



Many thanks to Cynthia for her kindness, flowers, snacks, etc. So very thoughtful of her.

Santa Monica Visit

  • 4 of 5
This is the second time we have stayed at this condo and we enjoyed ourselves once again. Cynthia was very helpful and gracious as always.

The location is outstanding and in a generally quiet neighborhood, but far enough from the beach that you don't see or hear all of the beach traffic.

The beds and sheets, towels, dishes, kitchen, TV/cable etc, were all comfortable and made us feel at home. The condo was very clean when we arrived.

Our only complaint would be that on occasion, but not always, on both of our visits is that one of the neighbors plays their music at early morning hours and woke us up. (2AM - 5AM). That said, it wasn't such a regular occurrence or we would not have stayed here again. It was mostly Friday and Saturday nights.

All in all, I would rate this property as an 8.5 out of 10 for overall value, location and comfort and would stay again.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure hosting you guys again! Thank you for the kind review. This is the first time I have heard about the music so I appreciate you bringing it to my attention. If it happens again, please contact me, during your stay, so that I can do my best to remedy the problem. See you again soon! Kind regards, Cynthia

Perfect Santa Monica Condo!

  • 5 of 5
This Condo is the perfect place to stay in Santa Monica. As Santa Monica natives my Sister and I love coming back home several times a year to visit family and friends. This Condo provided us an excellent location close to amenities and especially the beach. Every detail in the Condo from the kitchen appliances to the comfortable bedrooms made us feel right at home. We especially loved the decor and beach theme throughout the Condo. We look forward to returning time and time again!

Excellent!!!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this property based on reviews and we were not disappointed. Everything was as described and better. The condo was very clean, the beds were extremely comfortable and there was more than enough room for 4 adults. The location was great for our needs. The beach was a 15min walk, grocery store and Starbucks, 5min away. Restaurants and Third St Promenade shops were about 10min away. The neighbourhood is residential and quiet but close enough to the excitement of Santa Monica. We appreciated the "extras" that were included (the beach towels, the spices in the kitchen, the laundry soap and the nice welcome basket filled with goodies left for us by Cynthia). Cynthia was great to deal with and was only a phone call away if we had any questions. I would definitely stay here again and would have no hesitations in recommending this condo to my family and friends.

Fantastic apartment in Santa Monica

  • 5 of 5
We stayed four adults in this aparment for 11 nights. Everyone loved the apartment. It was very clean and fresh. Comfortable beds, two baths and a large livingroom with a sofa and a big diningtable.
They have thought about absolutely everything you could possibly need in a flat when you are on holiday such as a lot of info about things to do on your stay, beachtowels, olive oil in the kitchen for cooking and some coffe and tea. When we arrived there were fresh flowers on the table, water in the fridge and a basket with some sweets. We felt very welcome.

The location was perfect, 5 min walk to 3rd street promenade and 10 min to the beach. It's a grocery store 1 block from the apartment and there's also a lot of restaurants nearby.

We had great communication with Cynthia before arrival and when we came there she showed us the apartment and gave us tips about activites to do during our stay.

We enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend it.

Perfect pied a terre!

  • 5 of 5
Lovely condo with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen suite, dining room, living room, and balcony. The fresh breeze on the balcony is amazing for drinking wine! Great location: walking distance from beach, shopping and restaurants. Quiet location and super comfortable. Great place to work, too! (Pretty ideal place for a working vacation.) Cynthia (manager) is super friendly and stays out of your hair, but makes sure you've got everything you need.
