Guest access

You will have a key for the front security gate, as well as for the front door of our home. All that we ask is you lock the deadbolt (top lock) when you leave and come back into our home. There is also a lock on the guest room bedroom door. There is a downstairs bathroom that will be yours alone to use, we do not use this bathroom when we have guests staying with us.

Interaction with guests

We will always be available to our guests through phone, email, or text. We also will be here during your stay in case something comes up, or if you just have any questions. We both work, so our in-person availability will be limited to before/after work hours.

The neighborhood

We live in a quiet, safe neighborhood in West Los Angeles. The area consists of single family homes and apartments, and there is a elementary school 1 block up the street from us. There are plenty of grocery, convenience stores, and restaurants within walking distance. Our building also has outside security gates for controlled access. It is possible to rent a bike and ride to Venice Beach or Santa Monica from our place, with bike lanes all the way down to the beach. We have quick access to all of the LA hotspots, without all of the congestion and craziness of some other areas in LA.

Getting around

There are a few different bus lines/stops within walking distance from our home, as well as a light rail train a couple miles away. We recommend having a car if possible in LA though because the city is very spread out. If you do not have a car during your stay the best option would be to use Uber or Lyft (smartphone taxi apps) to get around. If you have a car there is free parking on our street and all of the surrounding streets (free parking is rare in LA). We are very close to the beach, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, LAX, etc. Just be aware that LA traffic can be pretty bad during rush hour, so plan travel around the city accordingly.

Our stay at Taylor and Shanna's place was adequate for the 4 nights. They both seemed very pleasant, although we had limited contact with them. At check-in we were met by Taylor right at the front of the building. Parking was a challenge during our stay. Street parking is quite limited after the commuting hours (when people get home from work). The room is spacious enough for two to three people, but the only drawback is the Full-size mattress, which can be uncomfortable to sleep in. You do have a private bathroom right outside your room, which was very convenient. They didn't offer any toiletries such as shampoo and soap, so make sure to bring yours. Overall our stay with Taylor and Shanna was pleasant. They are very nice hosts as well as their cats are very friendly.

The private room was large, clean and quiet as advertised. The bath was clean and hot water was abundant. Taylor and Shana were quick and available to answer questions. Parking is readily available on the streets but may be a bit of a slight distance walk from the apartment if you arrive after 9pm. Neighborhood around the unit is safe and near a school.
