7) No drugs or excessive drinking.
That's it. Thank you!!
My experience with Joy has been one of a kind. She is such a kind, funny, and vibrant person that I feel lucky to have met. From the moment I walked into the house I knew I had made the right choice. Joy has always treated me like a friend rather than a house guest, and I will remember her for a long, long time. The house is very comfortable and warm, and the neighborhood is fantastic. We're right in the center of West Hollywood and I had access to all different neighborhoods by foot. Plus, Joy has two cats that are very loving and veryyyyy cute. There are a lot of events that happen nearby, and Joy always made sure to keep me informed about what was going on around. Overall, I had a fantastic experience staying with Joy and would do so again in a heartbeat.
Joy is an big hearted lady that welcomes you in such a great way that you'll never want to leave again. Very comfortable room, best linens ever. Great location in WeHo! Thank you Joy, Bella (& the black cat).
I arrived and immediately felt at home in Joy's beautiful home. There were wonderful little lights in the room, and even a little duck on fresh towels. It felt so personal and filled with so much love. I loved hanging out with Joy who such a rich and intelligent person to spend time with. I feel very lucky to have spent time in such a warm environment for this LA experience.
I was flying out from London UK for a course, and had been badly let down at the last minute re my accommodation. I sent a request out at the last minute, before leaving the UK, and when I landed in LA I was relieved to see that JoyAnne had accepted my request. It restored my faith in Airbnb.
I was met by a wonderful English Actress, who has now become a friend, she looked after me and made sure I had everything I needed, and she was fabulous to come home to after the course and chat about our day.
The apartment became a home from home. I was so looked after, and the place is warm and inviting. it is central in West Hollywood and walking distance to all the amenities.
I cannot recommend this listing high enough.
The room is wonderful, the bed comfortable and a great walk in closet, fresh towels and extra bedding if needed.
I loved that two cute cats lived there, and fell in love with them too!
Thank you JoyAnne and Katie, (and Major and Bella too)!
I had a lovely stay with JoyAnne! The room was very comfortable, the location was fantastic, and JoyAnne made me feel right at home.
Joy is a lovely host! She has a very welcoming home and adorable cat called Major. The room is very specious and clean.
Joy welcomed me with opening arms and took care of me because I am new in town. The house is very central located in West Hollywood. Its very close to both Melrose and Santa Monica. Honestly, this is a great location!! I cant recommend Joy's house enough. I would definitely return to Joy's house. She's honestly one of the nicest people I've met :).
Even before I arrived, Joy was great with communication and she helped me settle in LA.
A great area. loved the (website hidden) looked after me very well. Couldn't have asked for more.

About the Host, JoyAnne
I am in my mid 30's (stand-up comic/comedy director), easy going, respectful, kind, funny and enjoy meeting new people. My other airbnb roomie is currently a super sweet British fashion designer in her 20's (female).
We respect the privacy of our guests so that they feel comfortable during their stay.
Enjoy you own room, plenty of space and a warm cozy home away from home!
