Staying at Joy’s house was, well, a Joy. She was kind, great to talk to, and very helpful. Her house was very comfortable and made it easy to relax after a long day/night out. The location was close to everything you will need from great food, entertainment, museums, and beaches are relatively close that you can have a beautiful day trip. The only regret I had was not being able to stay longer.

Adam was an amazing guest! I have never missed leaving a review, but just started a new job. I just wanted to leave a little message here to say, I'm so lucky to have such a kind, generous man like Adam stay with me. It was a pleasure having him in my home.

I will definitely be staying here again! Joy made my stay so comfortable and easy. Her house is in an excellent location. So many things within walking distance. She answers your questions before you have them and made herself available for any other questions you might have. She gave recommendations for places to eat and makes her place feel like a home away from home. The perfect airbnb experience!

It has been wonderful staying with Joy! Her place is hands down one of the best in LA. and I can say that because this time i have stayed in many different neighborhoods and houses in LA. Her house is very comfortable and clean. Her one bedroom was very spacious for the ton of luggage i had. And joy is such a wonderful and warm person. I am an actress travelling to LA and she was super friendly and gave me such wonderful advice. and this house is in such a central neighborhood and walking distance from a ton of cafes and restaurants. getting around LA is most convenient here!

The host is AMAZING! made me feel better than at home. She's kind, loving, helpful, a great comedian and actress. Hard working. Super clean, organized, accommodating. She has a beautiful heart and we got along super well. When she had the time, she was always available to talk, answer questions and go the extra mile. She's the type of host I wish I could always have. The place was clean, neat, spacious, quite, peaceful, full of all the equipments you might need for whatever. If you're deciding between another place around the are and this one, you should book here! The area is safe, quite, super convenient and walking distance to everything you need! Gym, supermarket, clubs, streets full of shops and public transportation. I couldn't have asked for a better place to be and people to meet. Just wonderful!!!

Joy's place in West Hollywood is an absolutely perfect spot. I'm just gutted I only had two nights there. Joy and her housemate Katie are both the most warm and hospitable hosts I've ever come across. I felt as if I were visiting friends and they went out of their way to make me feel welcome - giving advice on how to get to different places and what is good to see on my whistle-stop tour. Even the cats are accommodating (one of which has an amazing peach colour - no joke!!). The neighbourhood is very cute, quiet and I definitely felt safe walking home alone, including after dark. I walked very easily to The Grove/Farmers Market and even to Hollywood and back (a longer walk but definitely manageable). Thanks Joy - and Katie. I hope I get back to visit at some point!

To say staying here was one of the best experiences ever would be an understatement! I've been to LA many times and stayed in a few different air bnbs and Joy's place has been my absolute favourite. I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Joy but she stayed in constant contact with me to make sure I had everything I needed, she was so warm and lovely just from her messages that I felt as though I already knew her. I felt so welcome and at home the second I stepped into the house and the location is amazing a walking distance to so many great places in LA. Katie the other girl that lives there was also amazing, I had the best time with her and she made my LA trip so much fun! She was so accomodating I felt like I was living with one of my best girlfriends. I will definitely be staying here again and again and can't wait to meet Joy in person next time!

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 actress from Amsterdam in her early 20's (female).

We respect the privacy of our guests so you feel comfortable during your stay. We enjoy conversation but also happy to let you do your thing.

Enjoy you own room, plenty of space and a warm cozy home away from home!
