Other Things to Note
This place is a little on the older side but it's cute and cozy. The front door sticks a little, the sink in the bathroom is a little wobbly, shower door doesn't slide the greatest. Because of the older side it's a little ruff in places and maybe doesn't look the cleanest but I assure you I am a clean freak and I scrub between every guest. I'm also slowly but surely making improvements to make those things not be an annoyance :)
Quiet time starts at 8 pm but is really appreciated by 10pm. You know wind down time starts at 8 and by 10 relaxing with a movie with low volume is still okay:) Sorry no children. Unfortunately my place is not child friendly and the liability is too great. Please no smoking, incense, or candles.
No pets. I have quite a bit of guests say they are allergic to animals so I wouldn't want to hurt them knowing how that feels myself :) thank you.
Our hosts were great. They were very communicative and available whenever I had questions. They were very friendly over the phone, and the room was perfect for the weekend. Parking is relatively easy to find on the street, and the bed is really comfy.
Great. Every was accurate. Super great location and overall, this studio made my vacation to LA perfect. Host went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable.
Sherri was very friendly, and quick to respond to my inquiry. I requested to arrive earlier than the check-in time, and because there was not a guest staying here the night before Sherri was kind in letting me check-in early which made my travel plans go smoothly.
Upon my reservation, Sherri sent me a detailed information sheet of all I needed to know about the studio.
I do wish that the studio's square footage was listed, though, because this studio is very small - much smaller than I expected. Not any space to do anything in the studio, and the bathroom is very small as well. The mini fridge and microwave are located in the bathroom. The patio is two chairs and a table right by the front door.
It was a quite loud during the night as well - which is in no fault of the host, but was a bummer.
Overall, I would recommend this studio to a quick 1 or 2 night stay in LA if you just need a place to crash - but not for a prolonged trip or as a place to relax and lounge as a couple.
This place is exactly as described, Small, cozy, clean!! There is a microwave, sm refrig, and coffee maker. Sherri has provided everything anyone could need. There is Cable TV and a sm desk. She happened to be there when we arrived and was very welcoming, explaining everything. Be advised there is a desk chair but no other chairs so if you want to sit and watch tv rather than from the bed, take a couple folding beach chairs, as we did. There is a large walk in closet and a little patio to sit outside.
I would definitely recommend Sherri's place to others who need to be in this area!!
The studio is very cozy and Kamyar and Sherri made it very easy for us to check in. The bed is comfortable and everything is well organized. They were very easy to contact with questions, which was awesome, and even accomodated our late check out (thanks again!). The locantion is also great, close to Santa Monica and Sawtelle Blvd. Getting to UCLA, Santa Monica, and Venice is super easy. The neighborhood is walking heaven, really safe, and there is a Ralphs walking distance from their place. All in all, it's a great place to stay in LA!

About the Host, Kamyar And Sherri
World travelers!! Professional, quiet, clean, respectful, and private.
We're addicted to self improvement, adventure, being healthy, meditation and quiet times. We love beautiful sceneries and sunshine, dogs and children, comedies, action/mind benders, and romance, spontaneity and ambition. Guess you could say we are a little bit of everything and like to stay busy but also enjoy relaxation while being at home. we are people like everyone else loving to help others how we can.
