Kitchen fully stocked, living room with beautiful French doors, and the balcony with views of Downtown Culver City, nearby hills, and on a clear day, the Hollywood sign. Wifi and an underground parking spot included. We don't have cable, but we have internet and you can use our Netflix, etc.
About your host:
Friendly and helpful couple in their 30s, we're excited to make your LA experience a good one. If you are looking for things to do, we'll have suggestions. You are even welcome to join us if we are going out. Our cats are super cool, generally keep to themselves, but like brief moments of affection.
About the neighborhood:
Excellent walk score of 92. Within a mile you have the fun nightlife, movie theaters, solid craft beer pubs, upscale wine bars, and speakeasies of Downtown Culver City--no taxi required! Walk to Trader Joe's or the outstanding Culver City Farmers Market on Tuesdays. The apartment is steps from the Sony Pictures Studio Lot, and there are coffee shops, grocery stores, bakeries, restaurants, and drug stores within a few blocks. We about one mile from the new Expo light rail which can conveniently take you to Downtown LA in 30 minutes. There are a also number of beautiful parks, hiking trails, and a public pool within walking distance. Santa Monica and Venice are next door, and there is a bike trail nearby that takes you to the beach.
Getting around LA:
Obviously LA is primarily a car-friendly city and if you have a car, we have a parking spot that you can use. It is definitely possible to get around without a car though. We are within a few blocks of bus lines that will take you to Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Westwood, West Hollywood, LAX, Downtown LA, etc. and the new Expo light rail is less than a mile away. We have 2 bikes that you can borrow (1 women's road bike, 1 men's road bike) and there is a great bike path that will take you down to the beach. Let us know what your situation is and we'll have suggestions for you.
Katy and Brad were gracious hosts and very accommodating. The car shuffling was not a problem. It was amazing that our paths rarely crossed, but on the other hand, we spent very little time at the apartment.
Katy and Brad were amazing hosts and the available bedroom is awesome! They were extremely welcoming, had a lot of available information about the neighborhood and LA, and also have a pretty well stocked kitchen. They were also very flexible with checkin/checkout.
The room is a great size, splendidly decorated and a delight. The bed is extremely comfortable (especially if you are a weary traveler!) The private bathroom for the room is an amazing plus and was amazingly clean with fresh linens and necessities.
The location is right near Downtown Culver City where you can find lots of great food options. Public Transportation seemed to be pretty easily accessible also. The neighborhood has everything you would need.
I would most definitely stay here again! Thanks Katy and Brad!
During my brief stay, Katy and Brad were very nice and welcoming. Apartment was clean and the private bathroom was a great bonus. Really convenient location to get around the city. Would definitely stay there again when in town.
Katy and Brad were great host. very welcoming and shared advice on the Culver City area. The room is great: spacious and clean, and the attached bathroom was a great advantage. I would recommend to anyone visiting Culver City to stay there.
I enjoyed being with Katy, Brad and the two kitties very much. The view was beautiful, as promised and so was Los Angeles. I would stay with Katy and Brad every time I'm in LA!
Great place, wonderful hosts, quiet neighborhood and shops and restaurants in walking distance.
Excellent Airbnb -- clean and comfortable, plenty of space, and it's nice having your own bathroom. The hosts are friendly, laid back people and eager to help out if you need anything. I would gladly stay here again if I were back in the area.
Katy's place is gorgeous and perfect for our intern! She was VERY easy to work with and Shuo (our intern) said she was a gracious and kind host. I will definitely nook with her in the future!
We enjoyed staying with Katy and Brad very much. The room is huge and having your private bathroom with fluffy towels is a real luxury.
Katy and Brad are very friendly hosts, they received us personally and gave us some advise about staying in LA. They even let us park our car in their garage.
The location is very convenient, within less than 15 minutes drive you are in Santa Monica or Venice beach. Hollywood and Beverly Hills aren't far away either.
We definitely recommend staying at Katy's place.
Katy and Brad are excellent hosts! Their apartment is cute, clean, and airy, and they have a great view of the nearby film studios. The bedroom is spacious, the bed is comfy, and the room has its own attached bathroom, which is great. (We haven't stayed at many places where we didn't need to share a bathroom). The nearby neighborhood has a bunch of cute bars and restaurants within walking distance and there are several bus lines nearby (there is also a parking spot available but we didn't need it) Brad and Katy are fun and up for an adventure but were also willing to leave us to ourselves. We love their adorable cats too. We would definitely stay here again!
