Great neighborhood. A 5 minute walk to the Marina & harbor. I have a private bedroom and private bathroom for rent. Queen size bed in bedroom. Bathroom has outstanding fixtures - travertine stone, excellent water pressure. Also has private patio.

The Space

It is a lovely bedroom, not luxurious, just safe and pleasant. Also, I have the house professionally cleaned once every two weeks so your space will be very clean when you arrive. I also keep a lot of vases with fresh flowers in the house, which I think adds to its overall appeal.

I own a little dog, and she is very friendly and loving and loves to interact with guests, and therefore I am unable to accept any guests who do not like dogs or who would have problems with a little dog being near them, trying to play with them, etc. I have included pictures of her in the photos.

Guest Access

Guests have a private bedroom and a private bathroom, and access to the kitchen, dining area, laundry room, living room, wifi, private patio, downstairs patio, and, if there's no street parking available, a private parking space in my garage. The bedroom has a locking door which guests get a key to so they can ensure their belongings are safe and so they have extra privacy. I provide fresh clean towels, fresh linens, soap and shampoo, laundry detergent if desired. Guests are also welcome to help themselves to any snacks. I keep fresh fruit and vegetables, nuts, sparkling water and the like in the fridge and pantry.

Also, smoking is allowed but *only* on the patio.

Interaction with Guests

I work during the week so I am not home during the day. I'm usually home at night during the week and in and out on the weekends. I'm pretty easy going in terms of interaction.

The Neighborhood

Marina Del Rey is a great neighborhood and is a perfect location for tourists looking to enjoy Los Angeles. The first reason Marina Del Rey is an excellent location is because it is only a twenty minute bus ride from Los Angeles International Airport, which is very important for guests arriving or leaving by plane since most towns in Los Angeles are over an hour away from LAX by bus.

My house is also a five minute walk to the sailboat docks and harbor and the beautiful Burton Chace Park. My place is also an extremely brief (5-15 minutes) bus ride to a number of popular tourist destinations such as the Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach, the Third Street Promenade, and the Getty Museum.
Also, my place is a five minute walk to any kind of store you could possibly have in mind: grocery stores, convenience store, Peets Coffee, Starbucks, Pinkberry, Chipotle, the post office, movie theaters, etc.

Getting around

With respect to public transit, the Big Blue Bus (Route 3 and Route 3 Rapid) goes up and down Lincoln Boulevard, which is a main street on the West Side of Los Angeles, and a one minute walk from my place. The Route 3 starts at LAX and goes all the way up to Santa Monica and then over to Westwood, so it stops at a lot of the most popular tourist destinations in Los Angeles.

There is also a bicycle path right by my house, commonly referred to as the "beach bike path" that allows bicycle riders to go up and down the coastal cities of Los Angeles by bicycle. That is also a great way to see Los Angeles.

  • Wendy was super accommodating and the room was clean and perfect. We were greeted by the cutest little pug named Pandia who could melt anyones heart. Wendy allowed us to use her living room couch when an extra person joined the trip last minute and kept the fridge stocked with water and coconut water for those who need too replenish after having to many bevys in Venice. Would defiantly stay here again.

  • Wendy was a great host that added a lot of personal touches to the suite to create a comfortable and enjoyable experience. The fresh flowers were awesome and we appreciated the size and spacious layout of the room and the apartment. Essential amenities were readily available and much appreciated, as was the excellent location that made getting around in such a big city a little easier. We felt both safe and looked after. This was out first airbnb experience and it will now be a 'go to' choice thanks to the experience that Wendy provided. Also, Pandia seriously adds to the experience.... she is the coolest pug in America. Thanks Wendy!

  • Wendy is a great and very helpful host. The house is very clean and large. Your private suite is also very clean and large. Pandia, the lovely and friendly pug won't bother you at all. Please note the pretty house, and the great location: you can get from the airport to Wendy's house by bus, and you can walk from the house to the useful mall nearby. Since the house is about 200 yards from the bus stop, you can take the blue bus #3 to the airport in one direction and to the Santa Monica beach (and beyond) in the other direction. [From Santa Monica and the 4th St. we took bus #1 and then bus #761 to the beautiful Getty Center.]

  • Zeer comfortabele kamer, groot, schoon, met eigen badkamer die volledig en sfeervol is ingericht, zelfs met verse bloemen. Prima locatie t.o.v. de stranden en in een rustige mooie buurt. Eigenaresse geeft je alle ruimte en privacy.
