The Space

Hey there,

This is a charming 1950's style 1 bedroom 1 bath apartment in Mar Vista, which is located between Venice Beach and Culver City on the west side of Los Angeles.

Staying in Mar Visa allows your easy access to many parts of LA. Venice is just a few miles West, the newly constructed Metro Expo light rail is just a few miles east in Culver City (which offers free parking and takes you directly to the heart of Downtown LA).

Plenty of bars, restaurants and amenities are located in either walking distance or a short drive (or Uber) away. I really enjoy living here and find it easier than being locked into other areas like Venice or Santa Monica.

I started hosting in 2012 and you can expect top-notch service with a clear/easy check-in and check-out process.

*** This is a NON-SMOKING rental. Thank you.

Please send me a message with any questions!


Guest Access

You'll have access to everything in the apartment, with a few small exceptions like my personal surfboards/bicycles.

Interaction with Guests

I typically do not meet guests face-to-face. I make it very simple/painless to find the key which allows you full access. I'm available 24/7 via phone or email in case of questions or emergency.

The Neighborhood

Mar Vista is an absolute gem on the westside.

Sunday mornings: The Mar Vista Farmers Market is the gem of the neighborhood. You'll find food vendors, the freshest fruits and veggies, and every once in awhile - live music. Definitely do not miss this...

Getting Around

VERY close to LAX (15-20 minutes without traffic, 25 minutes with traffic). I encourage you to ask your Taxi/Uber driver to avoid the 405 freeway and simply take Sepulveda all the way up to Mar Vista. Much faster.

METRO and Big Blue Bus stops within walking distance nearby.

Uber can take you virtually anywhere on the west side of LA for approx. $10.

No annoying parking restrictions on my main street (minus street sweeping) which is a major benefit.
