Loved Location and apartment

We arrived at L.A on 28th December after a week in New York. Firstly we loved the location, literally on the beach which we took full advantage of and went running each morning. The sunsets are wonderful.
The 2nd floor apartment was very spacious and exceeded our expectations. It is spread over two floors; ground floor contained, a small but good kitchen with full oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker etc. I would suggest new crockery is required as a few were chipped and worn, but minor issue. The living room was very spacious with a large corner sofa which was very comfortable. The décor was modern and clean.
The 2nd floor contained two large kingsize bedrooms which were wonderful, full wardrobes drawers and with the things you really need, like mirrors, plugs and comfortable lighting. One bedroom had a desk and TV which my daughter loved. We had the bedroom which had a small balcony with views of the Venice canals and wonderful homes. The bathroom was also very spacious with double sinks and a great shower. I would suggest new towels are required as they were a bit worn. There are two hairdryers, iron and board and lots of equipment to take to the beach such as boards, floats etc.
Having wifi was essential and worked well.
We felt very safe in the apartment and the area was wonderful, a short walk down to Washington Avenue to the set of shops/bars/cafes. Our favourites were Cold Stone Creamery and Island Burgers. We had meals in the Marina at Cheesecake Factory and Tony Ps. Santa Monica beach is a short drive away (15mins) and everything was very accessible.
I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to stay in L.A, the beach location made it special for us, but it was also really convenient for accessing the whole of L.A. We did lots of travelling while there and didn't want to leave. Would love to go back and explore more.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much Sharon for your kind review. It was great having you and your family as guests. I'm always grateful for my guest suggestions and have replaced the chipped cups and got new bath sheets and towels for the beach. Love to have you again. Best wishes - Marcus
