This vacation rental studio apartment is located on the second floor of a handsome, completely redone, six-unit apartment building. Its many windows make the apartment sunny and bright. Tall bamboo plants on the side of the building sway in the breeze, giving you the feeling of being in a tree house. It features comfortable, contemporary furniture. The kitchen has all modern amenities: fridge, stove/oven, microwave, and combined washer/dryer. There is a king size bed, a small seating area, a breakfast table with four chairs. Bathroom includes an over-sized, walk-in shower with large rain showerhead. The apartment has a 37" flat screen TV with surround sound system, cable TV with HBO and wireless Internet access. The apartment comes with one designated parking spot behind the building.
As most beach properties along the California Coastline, this property is not equipped with an A/C unit. With average beach temperatures ranging from 65 to 75 degrees year round, air conditioning is not generally needed in our beach areas. For our warmer days, each of our beach properties is equipped with portable ventilator fans which, when combined with open windows, allow the fresh ocean air to circulate and cool your property to a very pleasant temperature.

Started out great with parking issues upon arrival... Had to park on the street and wake early on my first day of vacation to deal with moving it to only still not be able to get into my assigned parking spot. My car took damage from parking on the street. After finally getting into my space I was parked in the next morning effecting our planned early departure for Universal Studios. So one of the major amenities of the rental was a real let down. The furnishings of the rental did not match the pictures on airB&B and the furnishings that were there had lots of wear and tear (bubbled up water damage, chips, scratches). The ceiling fan was damaged and made a horrible sound rendering it useless. There was no oven mitts and baking sheets to actually use the kitchen as a kitchen. The consumables provided for use were not enough for a 6 night stay... We had a roll and a half of toilet paper, a single bar of bath soap and shampoo and conditioner, 2 bags of drip coffee that were expired and a random assortment of creamer and sugar. There was a missing wine glass and large plate and there was no broom and dust pan to clean up sand brought home from the beach. The unit was surrounded by serious construction that made every morning a nightmare of unavoidable noise as you needed to have the windows open to maintain a reasonable temperature in the place. Overall the rental WAS NOT hassle free and relaxing... Which is exactly what anyone going on a vacation would expect to get from their rental at the very minimum. The only good thing about this rental was its location. Felt cheated by the price and the listing for what we experienced to be completely honest.

My husband and I loved staying here. The location was perfect to Abbot Kinney and to the beach. It was pretty quiet as well! We would stay here again if need be! The only downfall was the picture online was not exactly like the place, but it was pretty comparable and nothing too alarming other than aesthetics being different. Clean and comfortable overall!
This unit was very clean, cozy and right off abbot kinney. I loved the closeness to the beach, shops and dining outlets. Its perfect for one person or even a couple. My boyfriend and i loved it.
It had everything that we needed. Parking included which was great. Everything was very convenient, loved having a kitchen! Close to the beach- wonderful! We were missing scissors, but everything else was good.
