Welcome to our humble abode!
We are located in the heart of West L.A. on the cozy side street known as 'little' Culver off the corner of Culver Blvd and Inglewood Blvd. just minutes from LAX.
Our central location makes our "neighborhood" extensive and accessible either by bike or on foot, and includes Culver City, Marina Del Rey and Venice Beach.
Just a short bus or car ride away are Santa Monica, as well as the South Bay cities of Manhattan and Hermosa Beach, famous for their volleyball and surfing.
For longer excursions to for example Downtown L.A. or the OC, we are minutes from the 405 freeway, not to mention reliable MTA, Culver City and Big Blue Bus service across the street.
Active folks will love the bike path and a separate jogging path across the street as well as the Ballona Creek bike path going all the way up and down the coast, only a couple hundred yards away.
There is plenty of shopping as well as a some Zagat rated restaurants within walking distance and for much more selection along with two movie theaters, the Marina Villa Marketplace is only a short bike ride away.

I am originally from Colombia although my upbringing as the son of a U.S diplomat saw me travel quite extensively in my youth. It was during these travels that I met my wife in Helsinki, Finland back in 1995. Today, I am the director of Casa Libre; a youth shelter near downtown L.A.
My wife is an author and humanitarian, volunteering her legal background expertise to Casa Libre and the numerous organizations that our shelter works with when she isn't working on the finishing touches for her upcoming novel.
We are both very down to earth, friendly and respectful individuals. We are LGBT and 420 friendly (as with most of California :) ) We ask the same in return.
Please feel free to e-mail us directly with any more specific questions you may have. I have lived in the area for over a decade and can provide quite a bit of insight. We look forward to hearing from you. Cheers!

Federico and Sofi were great! our stay with them was brief but we had everything we needed and this location is very convenient! Bonus on the mini fridge in the room! so helpful.
Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to hang out very much with Sofi and Federico. However, my stay at their place has been a great experience. It felt like I was home.
I would definitely come back when I get the chance.
I'm very happy with my stay at Federico's place. The listing is accurate; the room is very comfortable and everything went smoothly. Federico and Sofi were very helpful with directions for food and public transit. The kitchen was good, although I was eager to explore the city. I especially enjoyed a friendly little organic coffee shop across the street. Most of all, I appreciate the use of the bicycle, since it's a good neighborhood for cycling; there's a bike path right outside. The hosts were very generous and well-organized. Thanks again!
Thanks Federico, we thank you for having us in your home very well.
Everything went smoothly and as expected. The house is situated in a great place and very organized.
We could not have taken better vacations!
Hugs to you and Sofi my friends.
Short sweet and got the job done. I only stayed one out of two nights due to the late night partying but it was a perfect little spot to rest my head. I saw the host once during my whole stay. I would definitely stay here again if I needed a close place to my friends house to crash at!
My girlfriend and I were traveling through LA and needed a place at the last minute. Federico and Sofi were so quick to respond and accommodate. Their place was nice, clean, and comfortable. We were close enough to the beach to use the bikes they provided to ride the Venice boardwalk at sunset making the trip for us. I would highly recommend their place for anyone looking for an easy place in a good location with some great hosts. Thanks!
My friend and I were traveling together and needed a last minute place and Federico and his wife accommodated us immediately. They were very kind and the bed was huge and very comfortable!
Federico and Sofi were welcoming, wonderful hosts. Their room is tidy and clean. On my first evening Sofi pointed me to a great Mexican place across the street. Their house is only 15min by taxi from LAX (I paid $25 including a $4 airport fee). The next day I took one of their bikes to explore the wider area (there are several dedicated bike paths and smaller streets with less traffic making it a safe ride).
Federico is amazing person!Thank for fast answer,will advice u off all my friends,Thank u!
I had a really good stay with Federico and Sofi. They were both extremely friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The room is comfy and spacious with its own fridge, which I found useful. The use of the bike was a real bonus, although it's quite well placed for buses too. Would definitely stay again if in LA
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
