The neighborhood

The unit is 5 blocks away from Bank of America, the post office and the library. 7 blocks from Trader Joe's and 10-15 minutes from UCLA. There are also many restaurants withing walking distance (Japanese, Indian, sushi, pizza, hamburgers and more) all on the trendy Wilshire area with boutiques, coffee shops and yoga studios. Don't forget the Sawtelle area also know as Little Osaka, which also has restaurants withing walking distance (Japanese, Korean barbecue, sushi, noodle house, pizza and more).

Go hiking in the Santa Monica/Brentwood mountains, surfing in the ocean, visit the Santa Monica Pier and 3rd Street Promenade. Malibu, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Venice, The Getty Museum, LACMA.

Getting around

Both the Metro bus and Santa Monica Blue bus stops are on the corner.(please do a search online for specific routes). Off Wilshire Blvd you can take the Metro 28 (stops at every stop), or the Metro 720 (rapid bus and makes limited stops) or the number 2 Big Blue bus. The fares range from $1.50(Big Blue Bus) to $1.75 (Metro). If you prefer you can walk south for a block and take Santa Monica Blvd which has the Metro bus number 4 (stops at every block) and the 704 (rapid bus and makes limited stops) as well as the Big Blue Bus number 1 (which takes you to Westwood/UCLA).
If you are driving, the 405 and 10 freeway are right next door :). There is meter street parking on side of the building and regular street parking on the other side, please do read the signs. The street parking is free between 8 pm and 8 am and on Sundays.

My location is very user friendly, a car is not necessary for most places, you can walk, bike or take the bus. However, please do your research about specific tourist areas you want to visit to get an accurate idea of how far away a place is from the unit. Remember, search engines are your friends :) Santa Monica Beach is 3.2 miles away, about 10-15 minutes by bus. Hollywood is 9 miles away, about 30 minutes by bus. Down town Los Angeles is 13 miles/24 kilometers and LAX (Los Angeles Airport) is 10 miles away which is about 20 minutes away.

Other things to note

*Please note that close proximity to the bus stops is great but it comes with noisy disadvantages. This apartment is just a few feet away from the Wilshire bus stops so if you are a very very light sleeper, like me :( you'll probably need earplugs. Do not book here if street noise is an issue for you!

* Upon our agreement of an arrival time you will have a 30 minute grace period. After 30 minutes, unless previously agreed upon, your reservation is subject to cancellation or a late arrival fee of $50 (I will check you in at a later time as my schedule permits). While a slight 15-20 minute delay can happen, being 1-3 hours late is not. Especially without communicating. Please be considerate of my time as I am of yours. I work full time and have a child so do not assume I can wait around for you as that is not feasible for me.

The room was nicely kept, private room with clean minimalistic decoration. I think what I appreciated the most was how nicely kept clean the bed was. So many protective cases (not plastic, but nice, soft, good material) and bright white cleanliness of sheets and everything definitely helped with sleeping soundly. Kitchen was clean as well, with whatever utensils that could be needed. If you're looking for a great spot to just leave your things and go out and enjoy LA, I'd definitely recommend as there is easy access and many nice shops and locations close by. If you're looking for an experience to stay there indoors, it doesn't really have a warm cozy home feel, but then again, why on earth are you planning on staying inside all day if your vacationing out in LA? I personally enjoyed the street view at night, definitely gave a nice living in the midst of the city feel. Noise is really not bad, and I'm not a heavy sleeper. Gym there was well equipped and 24 hour, I believe. t sleep on your back or know how to place pillows so that you can sleep better, good luck to you. Would I stay here again? Yes definitely. Oh and hostess was delightful and prompt with assistance.

Caroline was the most caring host I've had. She made sure to provide with all the necessities within the place. She was fast responding to any issues or advise on how to get around in LA. I had my flight delayed in Boston and arrived to LA pass midnight, Caroline was understing of the situation and patiently waited for me. I really appreciate that from her. For someone who doesn't own a car like me, her place was 2mins from all the bus stops that goes to my campus at UCLA or to Santa Monica pier direction. This place is also closed many restaurants and groceries. Recommend!

I love to travel as often as possible :)

I am quiet and I keep to myself most of the time but I am here to help my guests with anything they may need.

I love to read books on most any subject but particularly science fiction, archaeology, historical fiction and non-fiction as well as current events.
