If you like to ride bikes, you are lucky, because that's the perfect way to see our unique part of Los Angeles. We will PROVIDE YOU WITH BIKES so you can ride to famous Venice Beach which is 10 blocks away or soak in the local bohemian artistic flavor that Venice is famous for. Abbot Kinney, where you can shop for antiques and eat in hip fab restaurants, is a five minute bike ride away, and so are the picturesque Venice Canals.

Also near by are shopping centers, movie theaters, and the very popular Santa Monica Pier where you can take a ride on a Ferris wheel over the ocean and hit the trendy bars and cafes on the upscale Santa Monica Promenade. During the summer you can ride the waves on boogie boards (we will supply them).

We provide all our guests with maps and recommendations on where to eat and have fun. We can also recommend outside services who can arrange a night tour of Hollywood's top bars and party spots. Wanna stay home - we have a DVD MOVIE COLLECTION to die for with a DVD player in your room.

Our home is 15 MINUTES FROM LAX and it is a $25 cab ride or a $1 bus ride. Santa Monica is 10 minutes away. If you want to go into Hollywood, the Valley, or Downtown all are about 30 minutes away depending on traffic, you will need a car and there is an Enterprise car rental nearby which will pick you up. We will PROVIDE YOU WITH AN OFF STREET PARKING SPOT. There are also several bus stops within a couple blocks.

So, to sum up -- included is WiFi, satellite TV, breakfast, bikes, boogie boards, and laughs. We are gay-friendly and have sweet little dogs and cats. The animals don't go into our guest room, but they do wander the house.

As your hostesses, we are available to give you advice on where to eat and play, yet we have a great respect to your privacy. We have many different kinds of guests, some want to chat and some just want to be left alone to work. Whatever type you are, you will be comfortable as our guests. Just read our reviews.

The best thing about our neighborhood is that it is safe to walk any time of night as it is a family neighbohood. We are close to the beach (10 blocks) and to Abbot Kinney which Esquire Magazine has called, "The hippest street in America." Also within walking distance are jazz clubs, great restaurants, and the famed Venice canals and boardwalk. The best thing to do is to hop on one of our bikes and ride on the bike path to Santa Monica for great shopping.

And if you like hiking, we are close to the Santa Monica Mountains which has incredible hiking trails. We have had guests that have just come for the hiking. Also, we are a 5 minute bike ride to the Marina Del Rey where you can rent a standup paddle board and go exploring the marina, either during the day (email hidden)is is my favorite thing to do and I just might join you!

We are located by three bus stops. But, if you want to explore Hollywood, we suggest renting a car as LA is not known for great public transportation.

  • My stay with Gina and Judy was wonderful! The room is great and riding the bike through Venice to the beach is lovely. I enjoyed my stay and their lovely home very much. I can highly recommend staying here.

  • Our stay with Gina & Judy was fantastic - couldn't beat it. Gorgeous house and gorgeous hosts. Wonderful hospitality and the perfect base to explore Venice Beach and Santa Monica. We borrowed the bikes everyday and got to know the area. Their cafe and restaurant recommendations were great too. Highly recommended. We'll be back!

    June 2014
  • We had a great time at Gina & Judy's place - very comfortable and clean. Nice quiet neighborhood with easy bike ride to Venice Beach and beyond. Loved the friendly pets too!

    June 2014
  • I had the opportunity to stay with Gina and Judy last week on my short trip to Los Angeles. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Can't beat it. I was close to everything, but especially close to my favorite place Venice Beach. The bed was extremely comfortable, and I slept well. Gina and Judy were very nice, and it was great to be able to park right in the driveway, and I loved the key pad entry system. Sweet dogs in the house, and I was able to come and go without any pressure! Very good location and a very affordable place! I only wish I would have had the opportunity to bike ride, maybe next time!

    June 2014
  • Holidays at Gina & Judy have been great! They are very kind and welcoming, the house is amazing, cozy and clean. We had the chance to ride the bikes they lent us from home to Venice beach and in very few minutes we were in the middle of the beach life. Such a beautiful experience that we would like to repeat and we recommend to anyone.

  • Both Gina and Judy were polite and friendly.

    They welcomed me and provided everything needed to make a comfortable stay.
    On the plus side:
    + free space to hang your clothes
    + Access by code which I loved since there is no key to lose :)
    + "private" bathroom (two doors but AFAIK exclusive access)

    Two things I wish I knew before hand (but I confess I didn't read all the comments so they might be called out by other reviewers)
    1) Door to the room is a double slider which makes for awkward opening and closing
    2) Shower is really low so if you are tall like me shower will hit you in the chest and you will have to bend to clean your hair

    Last, though this is in no way their fault or responsibility, but both nights I was there neighbor kids where being very loud, very late. Maybe is due spring break.

  • What a wonderful house and hostesses. Loved my stay. Very clean and welcoming. Having my own en-suite bath room was great.

    The house is really spacious and I felt totally comfortable cooking my own food there - although Gina and Judy are super friendly so its great to spend time with them too.

    Loved having a bike to travel around on too.

    April 2014
  • I had a great stay with Gina and Judy. They are two super kind people and made me feel like I was right at home. And their location is great, close to everything Venice and Santa Monica. I would very much recommend them!

  • Thinking about staying here?
    Good choice--and here's why I say it is...

    it could be the gorgeous architecture... the interior coziness and comfort, the sweet cats and dogs... the king size bed that defies you to get out of it... the expansive indoor and outdoor kitchens ready for your gourmet or comfort food cooking ... the meditational space in the turret tower, perfect for quiet reading or just being.... the bikes and helmet ready for a Venice Beach excursion or local shopping... it could be the room filled with a wealth of divine feminine books... but no... I think it's something else. I know it's because this home is supercharged with love and positivism from the two immensely gifted women...a look around and you'll see pictures of them loving life all over the planet..and you can feel this amazing energy outside and inside. Be a good visitor and feel the enveloping vibrations of YES everywhere. For YES, they make you feel right at home in the nicest ways. Be a cat or be a dog, either way you're in the right place.

    So if you want to visit Venice's tourist areas, relax ---you're close enough to be easy and quick to get in the thick of it but you'll be far enough away that the street is quiet and perfectly peaceful for you and close enough for the Lincoln Blvd stores and services too.

    Yes. it's a cozy, quiet place..convenient and if you're a good soul... you're about to meet some more beautiful souls here.

  • My experience with Gina and Judy was fantastic! They make you feel at home straight away and there is a pamphlet with sightseeing recommendations which was really helpful.
    I unfortunately didn't get to spend too much time with Gina and Judy as I was so busy, but they were always there to help.
    The location is great, so close to everything and the room was great too, the bed was so comfortable, I had the best sleep over my visit!
    I will definitely be staying with Gina and Judy next time I need to visit Los Angeles and I highly recommend other travelers to stay there.
