Joy was an wonderful host. From the first minute I arrived she made me feel welcome and always willing to help if I needed anything. The house is spacious, comfortable and clean. With all the amazing amenities included, a beautiful front yard and a great living room to chill out, one feels right at home.
The location could not be better, since its in West Hollywood between Santa Monica blv and Melrose. I highly recommend Joy´s house to anyone looking to stay in Los Angeles.
Not only is joy a great host, I am now happy to consider her a great friend :)
JoyAnne is just wonderful! She is also fun and easy-going. Her home is spacious, very clean and centrally located.
Joy was a wonderful host. Couldn't ask for a better location and experience!
If you're looking for a sweet, fun, open and helpful host - Joy is your girl! I rented one of her rooms for 7 weeks and loved every minute of it. The location is perfect and close to good shopping and nightlife, the room was so sweet and cozy with an amazing bed and walk in closet, - I really couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Would definitely stay here again next time I'm coming to LA. Joy made my stay such a great experience and I already miss the funny conversations we had and her handsome little cat Major for cuddles! Definitely one of the best places I have stayed at!
Joy is really a great host. She's so friendly and help us a lot during our stay. At first I don't have internet for google map when I go out. Joy is sooo considerate and drawer me a map. We chatted a lot. She's really an easygoing and funny person. The house is really cozy and bright, located in quiet and safe neighborhood. It's convenient to get a bus go to Santa Monica beach and Hollywood. Supermarkets and restaurants is just several mins walk. The famous Flea market is only 10min walk. And about her cat Major, he's sooo funny. Maybe u may find Major serious, but he's really friendly and he doesn't bite. Maybe u will hear him crying in the morning, don't worry. He just want sb to open the kitchen door for him, just like I did on the last day. He cried at my door and I followed him. I opened door for him. And he ran out happily to enjoy his sun spa. Haha, such a good memory. I think next time I go to LA. I hope I can stay wiz Joy and Major AGAIN!!!! Sooo happy during my stay.
Joy was incredibly warm and accommodating for my short two day stay. Quick to respond and super cool person. Room was as expected - clean and comfortable - same as the bathroom. Ideal location as well.
It was my first time using airbnb and I couldn't have hoped for a better person to stay with. I was very lucky to have shared the house for a month with Joy and another airbnb user Joanne, who was occupying the 2nd room. I know we have created a great friendship that I have faith will last. Joy is a very happy and big-hearted lady and if or when I will return to LA again, without hesitation, this is where I will be staying. Especially because Major the kitty and I are in love!
My room was very comfortable and spacious, plus walk-in closet! It's a safe neighborhood and close to nearly everything. I'm glad I chose Joys' house and I'm thankful for the awesome memories!

I am in my mid 30's (stand-up comic/comedy director), easy going, respectful, kind, funny and enjoy meeting new people. My other airbnb roomie is currently a super sweet British actress in her 20's (female).
We respect the privacy of our guests so that they feel comfortable during their stay.
Enjoy you own room, plenty of space and a warm cozy home away from home!
