About This Listing
Roomy master bedroom 3 miles from beach, minutes from LAX, seconds from freeways and bus and 25 minutes to Hollywood on Metro. Walk to ethnic eateries. Free parking and WiFi, full shared bath, kitchen and laundry. Shady sanctuary in West LA.
Shaded duplex with patio in a residential community near major connectors and surface streets in West LA. Culver City's Rail Station connects to downtown, Hollywood's Walk of Fame, the Convention and Staples centers and major attractions.
Guests enjoy a pillowtop queen bed with a Hungarian goose down duvet in the spacious master bedroom.
Guests who wish separate beds may use a double sofabed in the livingroom or I can inflate a comfy queen double thick air mattress in minutes.
K2 is my Bengal cat greeter, normally very calm and respectful, but she loves to play with our kitten Punkin, a shy but playful tortiseshell.
Handy access to the 405 and Culver Blvd. means traffic noise. Guests tell me this is nearly eliminated in the bedroom by thick stucco walls.
Complete access to the master bedroom. Share full kitchen, living room and modern bath as well as the laundry room off the patio, where you may smoke if you like.
French press coffee or tea, organic whole grain toast, cereal and California fruits available in the morning.
Interaction with Guests
Happy to share what I've discovered about LA, or we can consult with my kids next door. They are wise, 16-year Angelenos with experience in acting and the Industry (films/TV/production), who advise with a smile - if they can get some time away from their two three-year-olds!
I am often jogging or singing or acting or out, but am here in the mornings and evenings to answer questions or suggest restaurants or attractions.
West LA is cool and welcoming. Ocean breezes from Malibu to Santa Monica to Venice keep temperatures down and nightlife hot.
Culver City is a safe, friendly community; an excellent base for your LA visit. Walk to nearby restaurants and parks in balmy LA weather and enjoy the sunset from nearby Playa del Rey, accessible via a bike/jogging bath if you like.
Culver City is connected to the rest of LA via the Metro train terminal, which links to the city bus system that stops minutes away. Schedules are on line and easy to follow.
Park free across the street or on Culver Blvd. For Friday morning street cleaning, park in the alley.
LAX is 15 minutes away and taxis, Uber or shuttles are easily available.
Other Things to Note
Culver City has a smorgasbord of ethnic boutique restaurants plus all the chain fast foods. Shop nearby at two major malls. Downtown Culver City is famous for its restaurants and there are theaters and a movie complex as well as Sony Studios.
Note that Culver City banned plastic bags in January, 2014, so bring your own, pay 10 cents or reuse and recycle the store ones you get.
Keep fit at the local YMCA, just a 5-minute walk away. It's free for the first three or so visits.
Rent bikes and pedal to the beach or to Sony Studios to be in the audience for Jeopardy or Wheel of Fortune (get tickets online).
Cats are welcome, but sorry, no dogs. Please bring a carrier, food station and cat pan.
California is suffering a disasterous drought. Citizens are under mandatory water restrictions. Showers are limited to 5 minutes. If you need two a day, make them three minutes. Please use water sparingly in dish washing as well, thank you!
We share the kitchen. You have your own cabinet with cutlery and dishes, space in the fridge and freezer and dining table. Guests clean up after themselves.
We love our beautiful, shady ficus trees, but they shed berries like raindrops, so shoes are shed inside to protect the carpet. Thank you.
Toni is an excellent host, professional, friendly, and accommodating. I was so very happy that she was welcoming to my cats, as well as me. I would recommend Toni and her guest room to anyone, especially those without dogs.
Toni is a really good host. She manage to give all the help she could and she always make the stay comfortable. I really recommend her for airbnb customers and hope to see you again in my next visit!
Toni I was a terrific host and I enjoyed the her sweet kitties. Her place was very comfortable and close to everything. I would stay again in a heartbeat.

Bairro tranquilo, fácil acesso à freeway, fácil de estacionar na rua. Casa agradável e limpa. A Toni foi muito receptiva, nos sentimos em casa.
About the Host, Toni
I work as a background actor, so get crazy last-minute calls to sets. I love to explore the exciting City of Angels. So far, I've flash mobbed, paddleboard yogaed and slept overnight with the lions at the Safari Park.
I'm a former photojournalist and a dual citizen of Canada and the US who moved to LA from Banff in December, 2012, to help my son and daughter-in-law with their foster children. We live side-by-side in a duplex and I wasn't using the master bedroom, so I decided to host guests.
Love to exchange stories with guests from all over if I'm home and they want, or give them their privacy. My old companions Cowboy and Miss Kitty both passed in 2014, but K2 and Punkin (Punk) my two new greeter kitties, are friendly only if you want.
