The space

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.


The bedroom we offer is a colorful guest bedroom with a king size bed, mini fridge, TV, dvd player and WIFI. With the room comes access to all of the amenities we have available. You will also have your own private bathroom and shower.

These include:

-Full size washer and dryer
-Full kitchen
-Pool table
-Surf Board
-Beach Chairs/Towels
-TV and dvd player to watch movies in the room
-Paddle Tennis paddles and balls


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.

We also kindly ask you to please respect the check in and check out times, since we have them for a reason and it is not fun for us having to decline requests for early check ins. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

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 was a communicative host. His place has a great location and was easy to find. Every question I had, he answered via text within minutes. Not sure if he was there or not but it felt like I had the place to myself. Room was comfy and clean... bathroom could have used a bit of a touch up. They have the world's most docile cat. I am not sure she even moved from the couch or pool table the whole time I was there.... very sweet. Great location and I would stay here again if I needed a quiet easy spot to crash.

If you're looking for a laid back hostel-type of vibe then this is the place for you. However if you're looking at an alternative to a regular hotel, you may be disappointed. The host is very laid back--almost too laid back--which may not match with some traveler's style. If you want defined procedures, secure entry, and pristine accommodations, keep looking: for $115 a night we would've been better off in a hotel.

I loved how nice and welcoming they were. The bathroom shower could use some cleaning/ fixing. But everything else was great, really nice room.

Federico and Sofi's place is very nice and well decorated. The room is not air conditioned but the fan they provide and the windows keep the room cool at night. They provide guide books and other books for you to read as well!

Federico's place was as expected and is just as described in the listing. Federico was friendly, easy to get a hold of, and I had no issues during my stay. It is conveniently located close to Venice, Santa Monica, as well as a quick ride to the airport. Overall I had a great stay and I would stay here again!

Hi there! If I had to describe myself, I would say worldly and down-to-earth. I have traveled extensively throughout my life and know what it takes to be both a good guest and a good host. Now that I get to play the role of the host however, I hope that I can pass on some of the hospitality that was provided to me during my travels onto those that share a little time in our home. We look forward to meeting you! Cheers!
