The location of the property is perfect for visiting Santa Monica. We loved it. Even though the apartment had two bedrooms, this is not suitable for a family, with a king bed in the main bedroom and a double/queen in the second bedroom, not good for families, but good for couples. There was mould in the 2nd bathroom! The kitchen was spacious but no appropriate crockery for children. The dining room had high stools/ seats and not chairs, not good for young children. We had a 10 month old, so this was impossible to feed him.
The communication was difficult especially when 2 weeks Prior to leaving Australia, I had to ask several times for the addess even though full payment was made weeks earlier. Amore, phil's assistant was great, and assisted where she could.
Think twice if you have a family.
