Rental Manager purchased this apartment in 1991
This apartment has turned out to be such a wonderful thing to own. Its so charming, light and airy, the whole level opens up. Its in such a desirable location,close to everything; 6 blocks from the Beach, 4 Blocks from popular Main Street,short distance to Abbot Kinney, Venice Boardwalk, 3rd Street Promenade, Santa Monica Mall, and The Pier. A great place to call home!
We stayed at this apartment from Aprll to July (3 months) while we were studying English in Santa Monica. This is a very beautiful apartment, nicer than the photos, in a quiet building, but close to everything (we rode our bikes daily!). We had plenty of room and privacy The private roof garden was wonderful with the hot tub and we had many nights outdoors watching the sunset and enjoying time with new friends.
We would recommend the apartment and the manager was always there to assist us with recommendations or anything that we needed.
I would stay here again. The area is safe and so close to the beach.
We spent a lovely month this summer staying at the magical top floor apartment in Santa Monica, close to Venice Beach and the super cool Abbot Kinney. The place has a relaxing quality, with comfy bedrooms, a long balcony graced with humming birds, and an excellent roof terrace which proved an added bonus on days when the beach was a little too windy (or just to relax in the hot tub at the end of the day with a glass of wine in hand). The place was spotless and slightly old school in character, which we love. There definitely is a 'happy feel' to the apartment – just what you need for a relaxing break. If you enjoy the vibe of the area (this was our third visit) and are happy walking around to really get to know a place, then this is the perfect location as everything is nearby. Equally, buses and car rental to travel further afield are easily accessible and downtown Santa Monica and Main Street shopping are a comfortable stroll. The beach is less than 10 minutes away, with plenty of sights to see and things to do. The area also abounds with high quality, but affordable restaurants for food lovers and if yoga is your thing, this is definitely the place to be! Kathleen, our host, could not have been more helpful, ensuring we had everything we needed on arrival and throughout our stay. I hope we will be back again next year, as despite the long journey from the UK we just love it here.
I agree with Jim C review. This place was a fire trap and very dangerous to people over 55 years old & young childred as the stairs were way to steep and narrow. It had a terrible smell when entering and I did ask her as she was showing us around if people smoke in there as it smelled heavily of cigarette smoke. She said no but had all the french doors (with now screens) open leading out to the decks as if trying to air it out.
The towels and sheets were so worn and sheets so thread bare and old moldy pillows that had a fowl odor. We turned on the oven to heat food and it had not been cleaned and started smoking and we opened it up and there was dried up meat product on the bottom of the oven that cause the whole apt to stink of rotting meat. When we opened the windows to air it out and opened up the french doors to the deck up pops squirrels trying run into the living room (not cute). The roof top Jacuzzi was a bit of a mess and the stairs leading up were covered in a plastic and nailed down with old rusty nails. I commented to her as she was showing us up to the top deck that the nails looked dangerous and if you cut your foot it would be a problem. I also asked her why they don't update the property calenders on the site and she gave no good response.
I would never recommend this place to anyone and do think that Home Away should be made aware of this as it does not meet the good quality of property they are renowned for as my family has stayed at many many properties for many years now and have never run into this situation before :(
Not sure what apartment the reviews are describing but it certainly isn't the one that we booked but did not stay in Nov. 1-4th. We were given instructions (after we had paid in full) to park behind the house in an alleyway with many many large garbage cans and enter through a gate (which was falling off its hinges) and then into a courtyard which was by no means lush, up two flights of narrow stairs with carpet that I suspect has been there since the home was built. The smell going up those staircases was enough to turn your stomach, along with the insects that cluttered the window ledges, we couldn't imagine coming home in the dark back to this place. The apartment was bright, the furniture and linens dated and the bathroom with the shower and sink was not big enough to turn around in. Now we know why there are no pictures of the bathroom even though we asked for them. There were four of us and it took us 30 seconds to decide there is no way we could sleep in this unit so we called Kathleen to advise her of this, deposited the keys where we found them and left. We rent many homes through VRBO and HOMEAWAY and usually have good luck but there is a first time for everything. All we expect when we rent is that the owner portray the unit as it really is, give pictures that depict the size of the place or close to it and it be clean and well cared for, we did not get any of this renting this unit. The owner/property manager did not even offer to refund the cleaning fee which says alot.
I recently spent 5 nights at this vacation property. We were a party of 4 adults and 2 children.
We found the Apartment to be spacious and clean. It had all the amenities to make it a comfortable stay. We were walking distance to great cafes, supermarket, beaches and the promenade. The area in which the apartment is located is a lovely and quiet neighborhood, we found everyone friendly when we walked around the area. There was also a play ground a few blocks away from the house, A bonus for children.
We would definitely stay here again as Kathleen was such a pleasure to deal with.
Thanks for a lovely relaxing Holiday....
P.S - The roof top is a added bonus, its was lovely to eat dinner alfresco.
We had the most amazing time staying here! I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to travel to Santa Monica. Beautiful and Easy. Thanks so much!
