About this listing
Light filled, large room close to Pepperdine University, local colleges, and Malibu's famous beaches! Full use of house, WiFi, Amazon Prime movies in living room. Markets, malls and restaurants are minutes away. Quiet, tree-lined street.
This is a spacious bedroom with a shared bathroom. The room has a large double closet, big desk with plenty of drawer space, dresser and mirror, and a very comfortable double bed.
We live in a very quiet suburban neighborhood which is close to shopping and great restaurants. Some of which are less than a mile away!
We are located twenty minutes away from Pepperdine University as well as other colleges! We are very close to 101 freeway and fifteen minutes from Universal Studios. In addition, we are less than a mile away from a local grocery store which is perfect if you want to cook dinner or meals!
You'll be sharing the home occasionally with other guests. All guests who have stayed here are easy going and friendly! (We have a smaller room for rent, so when both rooms are occupied, the bathroom would be shared with two other adults.) We would be happy to offer you suggestions about where to go in the area as well.
Some of the features my home has to offer are high speed internet, and use of our fully equipped kitchen. In addition we have a great laundry area, which has a washer and dryer component.
Enjoy the big backyard with Gazebo and barbecue!
Interaction with Guests
Everyone hangs out in the kitchen from time to time, or we watch movies together. Everyone who stays here has been easygoing, like myself.
Tree-line street is quiet. The neighborhood is family-oriented, with joggers, people walking their pets or riding their bikes.
The house is literally minutes from the 101 Freeway, which gives easy access to going to Malibu through the canyons (20 minutes!), or to Hollywood which is a half hour away with no traffic.
There is bus transportation, five to 10 minute walk from house and you can take that to the Redline Metro in North Hollywood to get to Downtown, Hollywood and other areas.
Other Things to Note
Please read the house rules and house manual before your arrival. Important information is included in both.
Clean, responsible, friendly, respectful of privacy. Please wash dishes after you prepare a meal and wipe down counters and stove. Put everything away. We're not clean freaks, but try and keep the place clean and orderly.
We use portable AC, and every room has a ceiling fan, which do nicely with windows shut during daytime.
No overnight guests are allowed.
Laura made my stay absolutely wonderful. The house is clean and welcoming with a nice mix of private and share space. Laura was a great host and made sure to make me feel comfortable. She took care of anything that may have come up and was very accommodating. I highly recommend staying with Laura.
Laura is a chill and friendly host. I felt right at home staying here. The house is kept clean. The neighborhood is nice with easy access to grocery stores, malls, and half an hour from the beach.
Laura was the perfect host. She really made my first year in California a blast. I would recommend that anyone stay here. It's conveniently located and perfect for a student or someone new to the area. My friends at Pepperdine were so jealous because I lived with two dogs(great therapy) and had a washer/dryer and paid half what they did. The furnishings are very comfortable as well. Thanks for everything Laura!
Laura and Dylan are great hosts! Laura knows all the best places to visit all over Los Angeles. The room is spacious and comfortable and her home is very conveniently located, less than 30 min to most places in West LA, including Malibu. I enjoyed my initial stay so much that I have extended for a few more months.
Laura's house is clean and welcoming, situated in a great neighborhood, nice to walk around any time day or night. It's very close to everything you'd need. My room was clean and comfortable and each person had her/his own space throughout the house. Parking was never a problem. The other roommates were great and the dogs were so friendly, I'll miss them!
If you're looking to rent out a room at Laura's place.. DO IT! She is great! Her house is nice and clean. She is very helpful with any questions you may have about the area or things to do. She's lots of fun! I loved my stay here and ended up with a new friend in the process.

About the Host, Laura
I am a mother of three (one adult son lives at home, one teenage son is parttime with me) writer and social media marketer. I like to dance tango and outdoor activities. I love to travel. My favorite places so far; Italy, Argentina, Seychelle Islands.
I am an easygoing person. For guests in my home, I prefer laid-back people, who don't do drugs or smoke, and don't mind the noise of family life sometimes (it's pretty quiet around here most of the time.) I am not a clean freak, but prefer guests who pick up after themselves, and wash dishes after a meal.
As a guest myself, I can sleep on a couch or king-sized bed! I am used to family life, and love to be around people, but also like to have solo time. I am conscientious about cleanliness and order, and respect people's privacy.
