  • The room was fine and clean as well as the two bathrooms and the kitchen that you share with other tenants or travellers. The place is in a quite neighboourhood. There are some interesting coffe shops close in Centinale Ave and Venice Boulevard and a big supermarket passing Centinela Ave with Whastington Boulevard. Kathy just droped in to say hello but his fried Roy, who helps her with the house, was allways attentive and nice and gives useful advices about moving and sightseeing the city. Definitely, good location for visiting LA, specially closing areas like Venice and Santa Monica. Better with car, but bus connections work fine as well.

  • The place was worth the value with a comfy bed and clean restroom. Couldn't catch up with Kathy but I found her very responsive and welcoming otherwise

  • We are very satisfied with staying at Kathy's house. We didn't get to meet Kathy but out communication was great and she was very helpful. The room is great and its easy to get get public transport, several buses, towards downtown or the beaches. Would happily go back.

  • On Location:
    I very much enjoyed my stay at this house. It is in a fantastic spot if you're looking to visit West LA, Venice Beach, and Santa Monica. It's close to the airport as well! There is a grocery store and a CVS pharmacy within 2 minutes of the house.

    On Hospitality and Accommodations:
    Though I never got to meet Kathy, her friend Rob helped me get settled and was very nice. The place is quite and my bed was very comfortable. I stayed in the Queen Bedroom which has ample closest space, a dresser, a small LCD TV with Satellite, and a desk. It was a huge bonus to have a washer and dryer in the house. She provides the laundry detergent as well! The kitchen is well stocked on utensils, plates, bowels, etc and the refrigerator is kept open and clean should you decide to buy groceries. Free wifi as well!

    On Cleanliness:
    The house was very tidy and my room was clean, but it's a house so don't expect the sterile feeling of a hotel. But that's what I liked about the house, it was cozy. The bathroom was also very clean and I never walked into a mess. Though, you are in a house with other people so treat the place nicely as you are a guest and be considerate to cleaning up after yourself, no one will do it for you.

    Cons:
    There is only one con that I can really think to mention; parking. Parking in the neighborhood can be scarce at times, especially on the weekends. You park on the street and the streets are very (website hidden);DR
    Great location if you're looking to visit West LA/Venice Beach/Santa Monica. Good hospitality and Kathy is very easy to work with! A nice cozy place to stay, with the essential amenities at a price you really can't beat. Who needs a hotel?! I do plan on staying here again if I can!

  • This was my second stay at the house. And it was fine. It's a good room and good location. The setup of who's actually at the house is a little confusing. There are multiple rooms that are being rented. My understanding is that the owner's daughter lives there and she was polite but I did feel slightly uncomfortable when using the kitchen, as if I was an intrusion. And then I overheard a weird exchange between her and another person who may or may not live there. It just felt strange. And I'm not sure if the guests are supposed to be responsible for things like cleaning up in the bathroom bc it was untouched the three nights I was there. Kathy the owner is very responsive and helpful and the room serves its purpose if you're just looking for a very affordable, reasonable place to sleep.

  • My stay at the unit was great. I was looking for a clean and quiet room close to UCLA and the room worked well for me. I would recommend Kathy's place and will plan to stay here again.

  • A very happy stay in LA thanks to Kathy's hospitality and a great house. Location was nice and close to shops, take-out food outlets and buses which meant I could travel all over LA really easily using public transport. Also, very quick to get to Venice Beach and Santa Monica from here. I had total privacy, but the company of lovely people whenever I needed! A reflect set-up for me on this trip! Thanks again Kathy!
