Interaction with Guests
We look forward to meeting you. We are both often traveling, or working out of town. But either one of us or our house manager will greet you. Our dog Akbar may ask you to throw a ball. We can be social but you can always find complete privacy and solitude if you want it.
Marrakesh House is on a hill above historic Culver City/Sony studios with views out to Venice Beach/Pacific Ocean, Hollywood and Century City. The house borders a new California State park with hiking trails, stairs (for exercise) and sweeping views of all of Los Angeles.
Private parking at house (and electric car charging). A bus comes to the State Park next door to us from the Expo line metro in Culver City about one mile away. If you interested in renting an electric car or bike while you are here, let us know. Uber and Lyft are great options for getting around.
Other Things to Note
We have 7 chickens on property (in hen house but occasionally foraging in yard) as well as a cattle dog who likes to play catch - so visiting pets are a no-go. Depending on the week, we sometimes have other rooms for rent and on occasion the whole house is available. See other listings. Temporary stays by travelers are the best fit for us and we've priced below market to accommodate them.
Please, be sure your Airbnb profile is complete with a photo of yourself & asomef information about who you are. We are happy to welcome you into our home, and like to know a bit about you before your arrival.
NOTE ABOUT FILM LOCATION & WEDDINGS/SPECIAL EVENTS: Inquiries about using our house as a film location or wedding, must go through our location manager (Bob); it's his job to coordinate events with you, pricing (which is significantly higher than renting a room to sleep in), & permits. We cannot book this through Airbnb! Check the internet for Marrakesh House.
We love to share our space with guests who enjoy & respect a private home. You will have your private bedroom & access to the living areas of our house so cleanliness is a must. Common sense & awareness work as wonderful guidelines for your stay. Please, keep shared areas clean; respect our neighbors & property; & keep to shared spaces in the house & yard. Thanks!
This is Marrakesh House is so unique, quiet and mystery, full of oriental charm. It is a perfect place to do meditation and retreat from the noise of the city. Also the hill where the house is located is a friendly place for camping and working out. Chris is a simple and kind host. I just regretted that we didn't have much communication, because I didn't drive and had to spend a lot of time in the public transportation everyday!
Marrakesh House is a magical, mystical, eco-conscious paradise. You truly won't find anything like it in LA. The details of the property are exquisite, the views are unrivaled, and it's tucked away yet right on a great hiking trail, and close to all the hip shops and cafes of culver city. Chris was a gracious host and a cool guy to hang with if you get the chance. Highly recommended!
Beautiful home in a great location. Delicious restaurants nearby and Chris and Jessica were fantastic hosts. Wonderful experience all in all. Thank you!
Chris was a great host and flexible to my travel needs. The home is huge and has a relaxed and easy laid back energy. I felt safe and comfortable in the home and neighborhood.
The yard and grounds around his home gave you a sense of peace and connection to nature. The listing pictures are true, it's a beautiful home.
Coming back was like coming home. The place is just so chill and welcoming. Chris is, as always, an amazingly gracious host.
My stay with Chris was amazing. His house is so comfortable and welcoming. I was able to seal myself off in seclusion when I felt like it, or join in friendly, engaging conversation in the public spaces. I had several fun hikes and runs on the Baldwin Hills overlook and in Culver City. I had such a good stay, I'm already booked there for another trip.
Absolutely gorgeous home! Chris was a great host, and we were fortunate to be able to stay with him. We were able to safely park our car, and the house is in a great location - right on a fantastic hill to hike up and down for an intense workout. The condition was exactly as advertised, and is close to tons of good food and activities in Culver City. We had a truly wonderful stay.
