The unit is 5 blocks away from Bank of America, the post office and the library. 7 blocks from Trader Joe's and 10-15 minutes from UCLA. There are also many restaurants withing walking distance (Japanese, Indian, sushi, pizza, hamburgers and more) all on the trendy Wilshire area with boutiques, coffee shops and yoga studios. Don't forget the Sawtelle area also know as Little Osaka, which also has restaurants withing walking distance (Japanese, Korean barbecue, sushi, noodle house, pizza and more).
Go hiking in the Santa Monica/Brentwood mountains, surfing in the ocean, visit the Santa Monica Pier and 3rd Street Promenade. Malibu, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Venice, The Getty Museum, LACMA.
Both the Metro bus and Santa Monica Blue bus stops are on the corner.(please do a search online for specific routes). Off Wilshire Blvd you can take the Metro 28 (stops at every stop), or the Metro 720 (rapid bus and makes limited stops) or the number 2 Big Blue bus. The fares range from $1.50(Big Blue Bus) to $1.75 (Metro). If you prefer you can walk south for a block and take Santa Monica Blvd which has the Metro bus number 4 (stops at every block) and the 704 (rapid bus and makes limited stops) as well as the Big Blue Bus number 1 (which takes you to Westwood/UCLA).
If you are driving, the 405 and 10 freeway are right next door :). There is meter street parking on side of the building and regular street parking on the other side, please do read the signs. The street parking is free between 8 pm and 8 am and on Sundays.
My location is very user friendly, a car is not necessary for most places, you can walk, bike or take the bus everywhere. Santa Monica Beach is 3.2 miles away, about 10-15 by bus. Hollywood is about 9 miles away, about 20 minutes by rapid bus. 11 miles/17.7 kilometers to LAX (Los Angeles Airport).
Other things to note
*Close proximity to the bus stops is great but it comes with noisy disadvantages. This apartment is just a few feet away from the Wilshire bus stops so if you are a very very light sleeper, like me :( you'll probably need earplugs.
* Upon our agreement of an arrival time you will have a 30 minute grace period. After 30 minutes, unless previously agreed upon, your reservation is subject to cancellation or a late arrival fee of $50 (I will check you in at a later time as my schedule permits). While a slight 15-20 minute delay can happen, being 1-3 hours late is not. Especially without communicating. Please be considerate of my time as I am of yours. I work full time and have a child so do not assume I can wait around for you as that is not feasible for me.
No shoes inside please. If you must wear shoes, slippers or flat sandals are o.k.
No loud noise after 10 p.m. Please keep in mind this is a shared space.
No kitchen use after 10 pm.
Do not leave lights on in the room when you're out. It waste electricity.
Guests are responsible for cleaning after themselves, i.e. dishes and pans used in the kitchen.
Lastly, if you break something please let me know asap. You have the option of replacing it yourself or paying a fee directly to me.
No guests overnight or otherwise please. This pertains to guest who are NOT in the booking. I am responsible for every guests personal belongings so if you are bringing people into my home that I do not know of this may cause issues. Please remember that this is a shared space and I cannot have all my guests bringing guests over.
Finally no eating messy meals inside room and leaving the trash sitting there. Food trash goes in the kitchen. I'm sure you as a guest would prefer a roach/ant free accommodation. I also like my home roach and ant free. Please throw away your trash in the kitchen.
Please do not go through my things. This is my home and expect all my guests to be as respectful as I am.
I'm a 27 year old female who loves to travel as often as possible :)
I am quiet and I keep to myself most of the time but I am here to help my guests with anything they may need :)
I love to read books on most any subject but particularly science fiction, archaeology, historical fiction and non-fiction as well as current events.
