My place is close to The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, 3rd Street Promenade, Ocean Blvd, Santa Monica Pear, Beach.
The place in Santa Monica was WONDERFUL. I stayed for six perfectly pleasant nights. Senad did not disappoint! We didn't have the chance to meet in person but he was so responsive and communicative - an absolutely ideal host. He was very thoughtful with the amenities and even secured a temporary parking pass to make life easier. The apartment is perfect for those wishing to be in the thick of Santa Monica. It's just off Wilshire, where there are plenty of places to eat and grab whatever you may need. The apartment and neighborhood is peaceful, quiet and comfortable. From the apartment, you can walk to the 3rd Street Promenade in under ten minutes, and the beach in under fifteen! The convenience in such a beautiful city was a dream. I miss it already.
We choose Senad's place for our last days of vacation in Santa Monica before returning to Italy and it was absolutely a great choice! The place is located 10 mins walk from the beach and all main shops and resultant in Santa Monica or a 30 mins drove to Malibu. The space is perfectly organized for 1/2 travelers with a great living room for relaxing after a day spent around. I will surely check again if stopping by in Santa Monica.
