Lovely room and private bath in sunny 3-bedroom West LA House sharing with 2 female Brits (writers /healers/very fun people)
This is a GREAT location, right on the border of Santa Monica, just 10 minutes from the beach, 10 minutes from Beverly Hills and 20 minutes from Hollywood. Walking distance to Trader Joes, Ralphs, Walgreens, fabulous restaurants, yoga studio, gym and bus stops.
The room has a private bathroom with large tiled shower. Bedroom is furnished with a full size, extremely comfortable bed with pillow top mattress, soft 100% cotton sheets and fluffy comforter. Huge closet, dresser, internet and free phone calls to anywhere in the US. Plenty of great street parking.

The vibe is very peaceful, low key, spiritual and friendly, and there are lots of self-help/consciousness books in the bookcase if you want to curl up on the couch in the afternoon sun. Coffee/tea, cream/soy milk and toast are available for you every morning.
We've had wonderful guests and from the reviews everyone seems to have a good time here. I look forward to hosting you too!

Interaction with Guests
Both of us are VERY busy so unfortunately don't have as much time as we'd like to interact with guests but we can guarantee a cheery "good morning! 'would you like a cuppa tea?" when we spot you in the morning, and happy to guide you in the right direction for anything you need. :)
This neighborhood is the BEST! So convenient to everything. No need to have a car, bus stop is at the end of the street and it's only 15 minutes to 3rd street promenade and the beach. We walk to the shops and restaurants - Starbucks 3 minutes away! :) And...it's nice to walk around - no trouble, great neighbors...a park across the street. Check us out!
YES! see above...
Other Things to Note
we are great people...from England...very easy to talk to, fun, laid back...promise. :)
Please be kind, considerate and respectful. No loud music/TV after 10 pm no fighting and no leaving dishes in the sink. :)
Olivia was a warm, gracious and thorough host. The space was very comfortable and the location was central and accessible. I'd stay there again the next time I'm in town.
My stay and Olivia's was positively charming. The house is very relaxed and comfortable and perfectly situated to walk to the essentials, such as Starbucks and groceries. The room that I stayed in was very cozy and perfect for a restful night's sleep. Thea and Olivia could not have been more pleasant company and were always available to provide recommendations if I needed anything (even a good hairdresser ;). Thanks both again!
Olivia did everything she could to make me feel at home and she was very nice. As I was jetlagged, I missed having a tv in the room, but I knew there wouldn't be one ... The area is not great but it is a 20mn drive from the sea and Hollywood, location is convenient. I had a positive overall experience.
Olivia and Thia's comfortable home is in my favorite part of Los Angeles. It's close to the beach but out of the madness of weekend beach traffic. I got to the Santa Monica Beach on the #5 bus that I caught 2 blocks away on Olympic. Their house is 5 blocks from Sawtelle and all kinds of Japanese food in Little Tokyo. It's such a quiet neighborhood and so safe to walk around in. There is a wonderful healing center across the street with yoga, gyrokinesis, massage, accupunture and probably lots more.
Both Olivia and Thia are fascinating women, passionate in their respective fields, and busy and involved. I enjoyed the instant roommate
status with my own space in the fridge, kitchen access, and even my own bathroom! My room had a very comfortable bed and I slept peacefully every night. I enjoyed playing Olivia's piano and everything about my stay. They made me feel like a trusted guest, welcome to come and go as I pleased or to join them for a glass of wine. I hope next time I need to be in Los Angeles that "my" room will be available, but in the mean time I'm certain they will have many satisfied guests. A delightful and peaceful place to stay.
Olivia and Thea were such lovely hosts. Their home is convenient, comfortable, warm, and inviting. Very convenient street parking, and I enjoyed a safe and pleasant stay while I worked in Santa Monica for two weeks. Thank you, ladies, for your hospitality!
This was a great stay. Olivia was a warm and welcoming hostess and I enjoyed getting to know her.
The room was as described and the bed was very comfortable.
The room faces a street with busy traffic so if that's something that bothers you, it's worth noting (it does quiet down after 10 PM, so you will still get plenty of sleep). But all in all the stay was great and I felt safe and comfortable there.
Thanks so much!

About the Host, Olivia
I'm a Brit - been in LA for many years so can point you in the right direction for almost anything you need. I'm a writer/producer with a history in the healing arts and am now producing documentaries. I like to hike in the canyons (my favorite, Sullivan Canyon is only 15 minutes from the house ). Soooo beautiful!
I like to do yoga, play piano, hang with a tribe of awesome friends and look forward to meeting you!
Blessings and love,
