About the Host, Gidget
I live in a artists communal house in Santa Monica and love people, food, art, laughing, the beach and sharing our home with visitors from all over the world. We have had many guests stay with us & everyone enjoys our beautiful garden and fun nooks in our backyard. The tree house and thrown are some favorites. We have made many new friends through hosting and it's a fun way for our guests to see the city and for us to see the city through their eyes.
