About this listing

You get your own space, in the sitting room. Futon has a foam AND memory foam top & then, feather comforter on top. Heaven... LOVE sleeping on it myself. (;

Have towels, linens & soap for you.

The space

So you're thinking of coming to CA, trying to decide WHERE is the best place to stay, that puts you in the heart of everything, guaranteeing you good time!

ANSWER: VENICE BEACH!!! ;D

You will NOT get bored with this neighborhood, BUT... Remember, you get what you pay for in this neighbourhood. Rents are very high, so if it's too good of a deal, be cautious of the location or "vibe" of that spot. Decide what kind of experience would make you smile, where you sleep. (;

It is considered one of the most sought out places to live in CA & that's because it has so much to see, very colourful & unique, at the same time, very romantic!

From the romantic canals of Venice, observing all the extraordinary homes; watching the eccentric performers & colourful happenings on the Venice Boardwalk, (weekends are best) or visiting the many shops, restaurants & pubs that fill this neighborhood, you will always have something to do!(Restaurants include: organic, vegetarian & yes, even Vegan options!
Pubs range from "posh" to "I'm a student on a budget")
All this & I haven't even touched on the surrounding towns of Santa Monica or Manhattan Beach... which are minutes away!!!)


MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE:
I've lived in other popular locations in CA & I consider Venice the BEST.
I love this neighborhood because there is so much to do, that is only a walk away! The people are very kind, very approachable & very interesting. The beach IS indeed, only a 20min. walk. It is such a lovely walk but if you are NOT A WALKER, an Uber ride will cost only $4-5 or there are hulu bikes & bike rent shops near my home!


SO NOW THAT YOU'RE SOLD & CAN'T WAIT TO GET HERE!!!!

1st & FOREMOST: I HAVE 2 KITTIES & A SMALL PUP, WHOM I LOVE. This is their home. If you would freak out about getting pet hair on your person or you are not use to pets...THIS IS NOT THE BEST FIT. Whilst my place is clean & everything is washed, because I myself don't fancy pet hair on MY person either... animals WILL jump on beds & laps! (They love people) PLEASE THINK OF THIS BEFORE BOOKING. If you think you will want me to "remove" them, if they come near you or room, this is not the place for you. Remember, this is someone's home, not a hotel. It's important everyone feels comfortable. At night, the animals are w/ me.

I am more likely to book you if you have pictures & are verified, especially if you have no reviews. (;

***RECENTLY, the owner of our building asked us not to give the front gate code out. I have been giving guests, the key to the back gate. (back gate is CLOSER to my flat anyway) It's easier to meet my guest on the side street, near my home & bring them through.

I will supply towels & linens. You are welcome to use the kitchen, put food in the fridge & use the computer. There is wi-fi, so you can use your laptop outside. The washer/dryer right down stairs. I live in a quiet & gated complex. EASY & FREE PARKING if you rent a car, yet close enough to walk everywhere. If you fancy venturing out, there are several bus stops nearby to take you to Hollywood or Downtown.

Next door: there is a mini-mart (VERY convenient if you need a late night snack or suddenly fancy a glass of wine.), a laundry mat if you have LARGER things you need to clean & a coffee shop/clothing store that sells sandwiches & pastries. (as seen in the photos)

I'm young but mature. I don't mind if you come in late but if you make friends in the "area" & have no where to go, lol, I'm probably going to suggest hanging out in the courtyard or pool area & not inside. ;). I have a lot of mid-20's, early 30 neighbors that are pretty friendly.


WALKING DISTANCE to:

ABBOTT KINNEY
(one of "THE" high streets, people want to hang out & shop)

CANALS
(Romantic & beautiful...the scene is "picture worthy".)

VENICE BOARDWALK
(This is a MUST go, weekend is best time, for CHEAP shopping & food if you're on a budget! The stuff is cheap but wicked....I end up spending all the money I bring, so don't say I didn't warn you. ;) )

Interaction with guests

I normally really love interacting with my guest. Many of them become friends & we stay connected. :D

But…
Please understand, there MAY be times when my life gets busy with work, I may not feel well or….maybe I just have something serious on my mind & need time to myself. (; It's not too often, but there have been a few times. Please do not take it the wrong way. I love sharing my space, having you with me & no matter what is going on, it's a joy to me. :)

Other things to note

The owner recently let us know that we are not allowed to give out the front gate code, to ensure safety of people's things & privacy. As well, he realises I have many more guests than anticipated. As to not worry the neighbours, seeing so many "strangers", he has asked me to have my guests use the back gate, near the pool.)

It's closer to my flat anyway. (; no big deal

Not only was she an amazing person to be around, but she also provided amazing hospitality and great service to match her personality. Bluu made me feel so welcomed on my first days in California. He dog and cats are so friendly and adorable. I actually cuddled up with Oliver while I stayed there. Definitely the place to be if you're already an animal lover. Not only did she provide me with a nice place to come to sleep to, but she also made my first 2 days in California very memorable and irreplaceable. I now look forward to being in the Venice Beach area to drop by and say hello. Very social characteristics and a love for pets will make your stay here so enjoyable. Either way, Bluu will provide to with anything she can help with and always with such enthusiastic willingness. Again, thank you for such a memorable experience!

Staying at Hoxley's place was very pleasant. The room was beautiful, very nicely decorated, clean & relaxing. The whole place was nice & clean. Maybe TOO relaxing & feeling of "home" at her place because I spent more time there then I would have imagined. I love the neighbourhood. It is safe, close to airport & walking distance to: the boardwalk, beach & Gold's Gym. I do not have much experience with pets but her pets are very nice & well trained. We became good friends with them by end of the trip. What she charges, is a very good price for her place & where it is located. I felt I got a great deal. She is very nice, personable & does what she can to make you feel comfortable.

Hoxley was great, very helpful and kind, we watched a lot of action movies togheter and we shared good food (her spice tasty popcorn and sweetie are super!) that sometime she prepared, sometime I prepared (I prepared good italian pasta. :-P). Her pets are very funny, expecially the little kitty always hunting the big good cat to have some fighting game that he doesn't want and use to escape! She is really dominant! :-D The home is little but confortable, there is everything you need. The vibe was good. It's really well located. A good Airbnb experience for sure. I recommend it.
