I stayed here for 5 weeks while I was in town for a training. The studio is exactly as pictured, and has everything you need to live simply and comfortably during your stay. The neighborhood is safe and quiet and the property is gated, which made me feel even more comfortable. This studio has another second-floor apartment next door to it, and a neighboring studio down below. A coin-op washer and dryer are just downstairs, a few steps away from your door. There are great restaurants, shops, yoga studios, and more all within walking distance. I didn't have a car, and between walking, Breeze Bike Share, and Uber was able to get around to Montana Ave, downtown SaMo, and Venice whenever I wanted. The hosts do provide a parking pass if you need it though.
The studio doesn't have AC, but with the Dyson fan and the ocean breeze, the temperature stayed pretty comfortable even for July. The ocean view was so calming and a nice way to start the day.
The hosts are wonderful - Russell and Renata live on the property and were always just a text away if you need anything at all. They made sure I had all the basic supplies I would need to get started, like dish soap, cleaning supplies, plenty of clean linens, trash bags, electric fan, cooking utensils, household items, etc. and they even made sure my favorite drinks were in the fridge. They were so kind and very thoughtful in every detail. Don't hesitate for a second to stay here!
