House rules
This place isn’t suitable for children under 12 and the host doesn’t allow pets, parties, or smoking.
You can enjoy a comfortable room in a family home. I have two rooms available for guests, each booked for one guest only, with a shared bath. My home is small, and sort of vintage (1930's). I share the house with my adult son who works daily, and two small dogs, Bear and Fetch.. I'm retired, so I am available to my guests when you need me. We are within a one mile walk to south side Santa Monica and Venice Beach. I have traveled the world and enjoy all the diversity it has offered.

The space
You'll have a neat, clean room for sleeping and relaxing, including lots of storage space, and a shared Airbnb/family bathroom. If you need WiFi, you have it. This is the slightly larger of two Airbnb rooms in my house. The amenities in both room are the same, but this room has a bit more closet and drawer space if you need it.

Guest access
In addition to the guestroom and bath, the kitchen is available including the refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, and blender. The kitchen is completely usable, if not pretty. The house is fully equipped, so just ask, and I'll try to accommodate. You can use the washer and dryer, but since equipment varies, I will be glad to do the laundry and return is to you.
My house is 80 years old, and sort of vintage, so we usually have some kind of DIY project going on.
I provide bottled water, all thought Santa Monica tap water is very good, too. I always have coffee and tea available.

You are also invited to enjoy the patio, large organic garden, and back yard.

Other things to note
PLEASE, NON-SMOKERS ONLY. NO VAPING, CIGARS, OR RECREATIONAL DRUGS.
Fetch, the Yorkie, and Bear the Chihuahua, are the resident dogs. They are friendly.
The room is for your personal relaxation and sleeping only. No additional guests or visitors.
Just as in all of Los Angeles, traffic in Santa Monica will always be significant, whether you drive, or not. I can help you navigate.
Santa Monica Airport is our neighbor, so some noise can be expected. Recent changes have reduced the noisier, and more frequent disruptions.
I have two small dogs who enjoy guests.
There is a lot of green space in the neighborhood that we share with urban wildlife, so you might hear some unexpected noises. I do believe our squirrels wear combat boots on the roof; once in a while the opossums get in to fights; and depending on the season, big crows, or very small finches make their presence known. Spiders and other insects seem to work overtime in the yard. I relocate them when they come in side. Several of our neighbors keep chickens (no roosters allowed in Santa Monica), so you might hear soft clucking in the morning.

Location

Santa Monica, California, United States

One of five very distinct neighborhoods in Santa Monica, the architecture is made up of mostly single family homes representing decades from the 1920's through the most modern today.
Santa Monica College is our neighbor, too, if you are looking for accommodations while checking out the college. UCLA is about six miles away by Uber/Lyft, bus or car.
A park offering tennis and basketball courts is just a half block away; as is a nine-hole golf L.A. Municipal golf course.
Markets, restaurants and coffee shops are close by, but not too close. An easy 5-6 block walk.
Aviation history is important in our neighborhood, so visit the flight deck at the local airport, or the Santa Monica Flying Museum.
And of course, there is the beach. Whether you are here to work, or vacation everything you have heard about Santa Monica is here.
