We stayed in Steven's apartment for 2,5 months and we couldn't have wished for a better place to stay! The apartment was fresh and very well maintained, we had all we could possibly need to cook our huge turkey for Thanksgiving but also for bbq in the charming front garden. Our two cars fit perfectly into the garage, we had a 45 seconds walk to the beach for morning runs and sports, the area felt calm and safe, we didn't hesitate to take evening walks around 10 pm. Wi-fi and washer/dryer made our stay very easy. We felt at home right at once and Steven was extremely helpful whenever we had any questions, he also met us at the house when we arrived from LAX and provided us with lots of useful information! 15 min walk to Venice, 35 to Santa Monica, nice restaurants in the neighborhood, grocery store 10 min by car, easy access to most of the freeways. Bicycles in the garage for excursions during the weekends. We would love to go back sometime and we would definitely recommend it!! Take a morning walk, watch the sunrise and the surfers go into the sea, have breakfast on the deck and enjoy the beautiful area.
