Interaction with Guests
I'm here if you have any questions about the area.
This is an amazing neighborhood, Palisades Park overlooks the ocean and is where you'll find everyone out and about walking, running, etc. You can walk to the Santa Monica Pier, the ocean front and 3rd Street Promenade, where you'll find plenty of dining and shopping opportunities.
Parking is available in my underground secured parking structure. Public buses are 1.5 blocks away. A cab or shuttle is an easy 20 minutes drive from the airport.
Other Things to Note
My cat Poose is shy and does not have access to your room, it's likely she may never show her face.
This is a non smoking, no drugs condo. Loud noise is prohibited within the building from 10pm - 7am.
Everything that Elizabeth had in the description on her page was accurate. The accommodation was really well maintained and we felt just at home. It was situated in a lovely part of LA and so close to the beach along with some amazing restaurants.
Elizabeth was friendly and welcoming and provided us with some good information on places to visit while we were in LA.
The Host was away & welcome didn't happen - Host is addressing this.
Location very good - lovely apartment, smart, safe neighbourhood.
I caught the wonderful Big Blue Bus from bus centre close LAX - terrific 40min trip for only $1 & on alighting at last stop, realised I was on 4th St & only few blocks to walk.
Location was fantastic, just a short walk to 3rd st promenade. about 20 mins from the pier.
The apartment was fantastic. Unfortunately, Elizabeth was not there at my time of staying but she was in contact to make sure my stay was as comfortable as possible.
Great location, small bedroom with a VERY basic bunk bed. She rents out her other room to another guy which she should convey up front. Elizabeth is uptight about you using the living room which is pictured in the ad. My colleague slept on the couch and afterwards she arbitrarily tried charging us an additional $120 for no real reason I could fathom, other than sheer capriciousness. We argued back and forth on the airbnb site and I could not talk her out of the punitive charge no matter how hard (and patiently) I tried. Ultimately the matter went to airbnb and fortunately they decided in my favor and said that Elizabeth could not just add on punitive charges for "misusing" the living room. The whole experience left a bad taste in our mouths, I would try renting from someone more relaxed and less uptight.
While the host wasn't available herself, a very nice friend of hers was. The place was clean and tidy, quiet and yet close to the action!
It was a great first experience on Air BNB
About the Host, Elizabeth
I'm outgoing, fit and a world traveller. I lived in Perth, Western Australia for the past 5 years. I've just hosted friends from Norway, Denmark and South Africa and I'm proud to say that I have friends from all over the globe! I love long walks at the beach and luckily, I can walk straight to the water from my condo. Also, I enjoy hot yoga, barre classes and CrossFit.
I have an adorable part siamese cat named, Poose - although it's unlikely that you'll ever see her, since she's not a fan of strangers.
