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.

ABOUT US

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 are very nice and helpful hosts. The room is quite big and was like expected. The apartment is located in good and quite area not far away from the beach - you can take Federico&Sofi's bike and in about 20 minutes you will enjoy sun and ocean. So summarizing, very recommended place to stay.

  • Sofi was really friendly and apologised about the kitchen not being available due to renovations that they thought would be finished. We didn't meet Fredico.
    Neighbourhood was good I think, were only there overnight.

  • Fred and Sofie were great hosts! The place is really cool decorated with bright colours and lots of nice posters and pictures. We made a last minute reservation and they were really quick to respond. Both are really nice and open people and we are just sad we didnt get to spend more time at their place.

  • This was my first Air BnB experience and it was a good one! I needed a place to stay one night. Frederico was flexible and responded on short notice. He has bikes to borrow which made getting to beach easy and I didn't have to worry about parking. And he had good recommendations on where to eat. I would definitely stay there again.

    June 2014
  • Great place for travelers to stay while visiting LA. A lot of extra things are provided that make for good times and very easy access to the beach using public transportation

About
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!
