“Laura's space and hospitality exceeded all expectations. The place is a cozy studio in a beautiful area, minutes walking distance from the beach and surrounded by beautiful homes, good restaurants and a prime stretch of beach. There was parking available nearby and we were always able to find a spot on the street, which can be difficult in that area of Santa Monica. From before we even checked in, Laura was extremely proactive and responsive, making sure we had everything we needed and offering excellent recommendations for food, coffee, and attractions in the area. She was very accommodating in terms of our check-in/check-out schedule and was extremely friendly and courteous when we met her. I would definitely recommend her apartment to anyone / any couple looking for a beach getaway in a quiet yet accessible neighborhood. I would love to stay there again on my next visit. Thank you Laura!!!”

“Can't say enough about this place. Great location, great value, quirky style and clean. Between the $15/day credit at the roadhouse, the complimentary coffee, prosecco, and Fiji waters, you can't beat the value. You might think "Eh, diner food," but the food is actually GREAT and everything is fresh. The Dijon Plum Impossible burger was delicious and the staff is so sweet. Communication with Anthony was seamless, fast and courteous as ever. The beach/bike bath truly is right across the street and connects to downtown Santa Monica, so if you have an extra 30 minutes and are able to walk, no Uber needed. The room and furnishings are definitely modest and follow the "upcycled style" that the roadhouse does. It's certainly got the old beach motel vibe going, so don't expect a luxury experience, but the important thing is it's perfectly clean and suitable for sleeping. Chromecast was a plus. If you're not accustomed to the sound of light traffic (just passing cars, no horns or anything), since this is right on the PCH, ear plugs might be a good idea. The desk area in the room is sufficient if you need to take a call or get something quick done, but the chair is quite worn and caused mild back pain after working through the morning there. I should have just worked downstairs in the Roadhouse, but that thought occurred to me too late. I did that the following day instead and that was great. Would definitely stay again and continue to sing Patrick's praises to anyone who will listen!”

“We had a wonderful stay at Leslie's, it was exactly as the reviews and photos depicted. It was modern, stylish, comfortable and in an excellent location. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in and the pillows too. The shower pressure was ah-may-zing, the towels luxuriously soft and fluffy ! The location was excellent, easy 20 min walk to SM pier and shops. Leslie assisted many times, umbrellas were provided when it rained, when I needed milk and bread for my baby as the stores shelves were empty and provided a luggage bag for my trip home as the shops were closed due to the situation. Leslie went above and beyond helping me and I am so greatful. Leslie is kind, patient and sweet. I recommend this studio 100% and when I next return to Santa Monica will be booking Leslie's studio.”
