-It's very important to make sure heater and stove are turned off before leaving the space. We don't want any fires!

Our stay at Morena's cottage was incredibly lovely. We were greeted by Morena's mother and given a quick tour of how everything works. The cottage was super clean and came equipped with all the necessities for cooking. The little courtyard surrounded in plants was so nice to hang out in. Over the five days we came to befriend the resident kitty, gypsy and got to know the neighborhood. We made lots of amazing meals with goods from the supermarket nearby, which was so inexpensive and had lots of fresh local specialties.
Also a good location to access Venice Beach, only $8 with Uber.
Overall it was an charming and unique home with great value and more than enough amenities. Would recommend it to anyone!
Morena was easy to communicate with and helpful. The cottage suited my needs well and the outdoor space is great. Even Gypsy was friendly and sweet. Great overall experience.
Morenas cottage was exactly like listed, cozy. My wife and I spent a week there after driving across the country. Morena was helpful whenever we needed anything. Gypsy was great company as well. Greeted us in the morning and evening. Such a friendly cat. The location was great. Very easy to get to everything on that side of the city from the cottage. The bike path adjacent to there gets you to the beach in minutes.

About the Host, Morena
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
