This listing provides a near perfect location for staying in the middle of Santa Monica. Out the door one way is the 3rd Street Promenade, the other way is the Santa Monica Pier. Location is certainly one of the most attractive features of this listing. Despite the busy location of the listing, sound at night was surprisingly minimal, so much so, that I wish I had brought my fan for noise, as it was almost too quiet. With that being said, this accommodation would likely not be a good choice if you or your party are loud people, or if you plan to be party people for your stay. I assume there are neighbors on each sides of the wall and below you. The corner balcony location would seem to echo sound throughout the complex, as even just casual conversation on the balcony seemed to be too loud to continue out there past about 10pm.
Penthouse Apartment was very clean, appropriately stocked and larger than I was initially expecting. There were two couples in our party and we found the accommodations to be very fitting in size for us. Living room opens up to an ocean facing balcony, with additional access from the Master Bedroom. I believe the ocean was visible from every room.
Two exceptionally clean bathrooms, one next to each bedroom. Showers were large, and stocked with amenities, including provided clean towels.
Kitchen appeared to be granite countertops with modern appliances.
Communication with Cyrus was easy, convenient and well spoken.
We spent most of our time outside the apartment running around Santa Monica, as I assume other guests would do as well. This apartment served as a perfect, centrally located, home base for us for a few days.
Would certainly stay again.
