This place is great! Everything you may need in an apartment, more space that I was expecting, actually.
I love the way it's painted, you feel so calm! It's an special place, you can see the 'personal touch' in each detail.
Clean and comfortable. It's a good choice.
Morena's Home Sweet Stay was amazing! We had a little trouble finding it, but that was probably because we weren't familiar with the street numbers. Once we saw the path, we found our way easily. The place itself was comfortable and CLEAN! The area was quiet and pretty safe. Some have made comments about the neighbor's dogs making noise, but really the only time they barked was when we walked by and obviously because they were unfamiliar with us. Overall, we enjoyed it and I will gladly stay there again if I ever come to LA again!
We had a wonderful time in Morenas little home! It was very easy to communicate with her and she replied very quickly to all our requests and questions. We were staying with five people which was absolutely comfortable. Would definitely come back as zu apartment is perfectl located between downtown LA and the beaches!
This was my second time staying at a listing of Morena's and once again, it was a wonderful stay. The apartment was quaint & cozy, everything was clean, and parking was incredibly easy.
Morena's home was lovely, lively, clean, and colorful!! We enjoyed staying there and felt very welcomed and cozy. Neighborhood felt safe and parking was easy! Morena made sure we had a smooth check-in and check-out...We had a blast in LA and I recommend Morena's home for your stay!
Morena was an excellent host. Very responsive and informative. The apartment was exactly like the pictures and very clean, comfortable, convenient, well kept and close to everything. Morena was amazing in getting back to us really quickly and really nice. This will definately be my go to place when im in LA. Could not have asked for better.

I am fun, outgoing, approachable, helpful, and friendly!
Being a Native of Los Angeles, Culver City to be more specific, I can help you with any info pertaining to this city, just ask me!
I am a graduate from CalArts, with a Bachelors in Fine Arts, however, for work I instruct Vinyasa Flows, Brazilian dance, perform Samba Shows around town, and on occasion sing Brazilian Jazz with different bands-can't escape my roots!
I also enjoy my personal projects of interior design, that include two of my listings: Home Sweet Stay, and Cozy Cottage. Home Sweet Stay is the more elaborate of the two, in which I built and designed 4 costume furniture pieces, costume pillows and curtains, rejuvenated vintage furniture, and displayed my own original paintings+photos around the walls of the house, creating a lively, anti-depressant environment!
*I also speak Fluent Portuguese and Spanish
