Perfect location for downtown Santa Monica

  • 4 of 5

Clean, corfortable, and convenient location. I took one star away because the check-in situation was less than ideal. I had to retrieve keys from a location more than 10 miles away from the apartment's location which doubled my taxi/uber fare.

Great condo in great location- just lacking a few things!

  • 3 of 5

I am not sure how to rate our stay. The condo is in such a great location. It is near restaurants, shops and just a few blocks away from the beach. While the condo is small, we stayed there with two adults and 3 kids and were ok space wise. However, if you are traveling with 5 people, you should be aware that the "day bed" is not really a day bed. It is really meant for a toddler/preschool sized child. It is also in the only bedroom and it does not lay down flat. the head and foot boards dont lay all the way down so it is kind of a C shape. My 13 year old daughter ended up pulling the mattress off the bed and just sleeping on the floor. Also, we were not provided with any cleaning supplies, only 1.5 rolls of toilet paper, no hand soap, no shampoo/conditioner, no laundry detergent, no paper towels etc. So you should come prepared to spend some money at the store when you arrive. Staying for a week or longer, you will want to be able to at least wipe down the counters and clean the bathroom a bit.

The customer service is responsive and dealt as quickly as possible with any issue we had. Warning: you only get one key and you cant get in and out of the building without it. So, if you have a family that wants to split up and do different things, you are out of luck. Also, they dont meet you at the condo like most VRBO properties do. You have to go out of your way to their office to get the key etc. Parking is an extra $20 per night and you cant fit a car with a luggage rack on it so be warned. It says pets are welcome, but that is another additional fee. So just be warned that staying here comes with a lot of extra costs. I think at over $300 per night, we should have at least been provided with some hand soap. But the property managers are nice and I guess it just is what it is.

as pretty as the photo

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 5 slept comforatbably here. And the location was great. Easy walk to pier, promenade and restaurants (we really liked Blue Daisy up the street). You wouldn't want to spend too much time in the apartment as it is pretty compact. I would have rated it a 5-star except the carpet and bathroom are showing some wear. Responsive and helpful customer service. Overall, I'm very glad to have stayed here for 3 nights.

Very nice apartment, very well located, and very clean!!

  • 4 of 5

In general, very nice apartment. If I were to complain about something, is that we were given just one set of keys, which in case you forget them in the house (like happened to us once), you are screwed. Besides that, very clean and well located apartment, and very very close to main freeways. We really enjoyed it!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 adults and 2 kids and enjoyed our stay a lot. The apartment was clean, well equipped and in a great location, walking distance everywhere. Also, Santa Monica is a great part of LA to stay.

Very cute and comfortable. Watch out for unmentioned parking fees...

  • 4 of 5

The location was a short walk to the beach, pier, and 3rd Street Promenade. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The parking underneath was convenient however not made for a large vehicle. I was unhappy to be charged for parking by the management company when I went to pick up the keys since it was not stated in the original contract, but there was no other option and I felt stuck. I requested more towels and was told it was not an option, that what they provided was all that was allotted for but I was more than welcome to use the washer that was provided in the unit. The housekeepers did eventually end up bringing extra over after I explained there were not even enough for the tenants that were staying there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind feedback. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay. However, some of which you mention is inaccurate. The site most certainly mentions the parking cost. If you lok at the rate details, it shows you daily rate, associated fees as well as cost of parking. Parking is not assesed at that time as it is optional. For future reference I'd suggest you thoroughl read terms and policies before securing a booking, as well as leaving inaccurate feedback. As for the towels, we provide one set of towels per max occupancy. In your case, this would be 5. We do not provide extra towels, as there is a laundry facility shoud you need to refresh your linens. This is a self accommodating unit, not a hotel. The hotels in the area are twice as much and don't include a sitting room or a kitchen. The value received is unmeasurable.
