This earthy, eclectic spot is your beachside home away from home. The available room fits 2 with kitchen, bathroom & laundry access. Easily accessible to the 10 freeway. A 5 minute walk to Main Street, 7 minute walk to the beach or about a 20 minute walk to Third Street Promenade and The Santa Monica Beach Pier.
****NOTE: There is one mid-sized dog in the space. She is SUPER friendly, quiet and gets along with everyone.****
***ALSO NOTE: I am currently redecorating so there have been some updates to the interior decorations - more pieces from my world travels and more rustic, natural elements.***
This isn't one of those cold, modern, minimalist condos by the beach (if that's your thing, you'll wanna check out another pad). It gets tons of light and there are eclectic details that make this space cozy and unique, a true beachside home away from home. There's also access to outdoor social spaces so you won't feel confined even on those days you choose not to venture out and about.
I am a 90% gluten free (except for the occasional craft brew) whole foods, plant-based vegan foodie while my roommate is a vegetarian. That being said she barely cooks, if at all, and her take out is primarily vegan. Her canine daughter Harlow eats dry food that does have animal products in it, but other than that, the cookware, utensils, etc. are animal free.
You will have full access to one private bedroom with hanging closet space and a bookshelf, ceiling fan, tons of light and fresh air from two windows above the queen-sized bed. There is a shared bathroom with shower that separates you from the other bedroom (which will be occupied by either me or my roommate depending on the timeframe). You will also have access to a coin-operated laundry and dryer which is shared with the rest of the building. There are only four total units and my neighbors are super friendly. There are modern, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen as well as a dishwasher (there is dish detergent under the kitchen sink). Along with fridge space you will have labeled cupboard space as well (help yourself to the instant oatmeal if you're stuck for breakfast). The living and dining areas are also shared and my roommate and I are super chill so don't be afraid to socialize.
No smoking Not suitable for pets No parties or events Not child-friendly (0-12 years) Check-in time is anytime after 12noon. Please check out no later than 12noon. Please remove your shoes at the front door. When you leave, please leave everything where and how you originally found it with the key, etc. laid out on the bed.

Security Deposit (optional)
$300 fully refundable after stay assuming there has been no damage to the unit or anything contained therein. There will be a $100 cleaning fee unless you need a same day booking in which case I won't be able to get our cleaning crew through before you arrive.
Yoga studios abound and Santa Monica/Venice is a vegan restaurant HAVEN: Erven, Plant Food + Wine, The Butchers Daughter, Cafe Gratitude, The Golden Mean Cafe, Satdha, etc. etc. etc. During the summer their are live, free concerts on the Santa Monica Pier and your gym can be outdoors at the Original Muscle Beach just south of the Pier.
The beach, of course! We're lucky to have a local co-op where I do my grocery shopping, but there's always the Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday morning farmer's markets for great produce, prepared foods, live music (Sunday), and people watching.
LOCAL TOURISM: Third Street Promenade The Pier Main Street Montana Avenue The Aquarium
Everything is so walkable here! And if you don't feel like walking, rent a bike for the day. You won't even need a car! Santa Monica and Venice are super bike-friendly and the beach bike path is less than a 5 minute ride from my front door! You can go all the way down to Manhattan Beach or further! You can walk to all the great restaurants and bars, art galleries and parks on Main Street in 10 minutes and the Santa Monica Pier and Third Street Promenade are only a 20 minute walk away (everything's even closer by bike)! There's tons of bus stops for the Big Blue Bus (including one right at my street corner) which can get you just about anywhere and the scenic views are to die for. Though my building is right off Lincoln Blvd., my street is super quiet and you won't even know you're right off a main thoroughfare with direct access to the 10 highway!

About Your Host
Every moment has 300,000 possibilities. Nothing is permanent.
I'm a self-proclaimed "Voodie" (read: vegan foodie). I love being outdoors and many of my favorite activities reflect that. I love meeting new folks and would love to make more connections with people from all over the world so that I have more excuses to see more new places and ways of life. I'm pretty laid back, helpful and social both as a guest and host. The questions I ask are always genuine. I am fascinated by people and want to know who you are and how you work.
