Interaction with Guests

WHAT YOU'LL HEAR FROM ME, "Hello and how can I help you? Do you need anything?" Never hesitate to ask. If you want to chat more... we love to but, will always respect your privacy.

The Neighborhood

This is a safe, quiet Santa Monica neighborhood called Sunset Park. Easy walk to Ocean Park Blvd and all that you'll need. Most of the homes in the area are single family.

Getting Around

Groceries, coffee, etc. are within walking distance and a detailed map is provided in the unit. The Big Blue Bus (closest stop is #8 Bus at Fairview Library) is a safe, easy, inexpensive way to get around. And many visitors find it easy to connect with the larger LADOT municipal bus system and Metro trains. LAX is 6 miles to the south.

Other Things to Note

Many guests love to return each time they have work or travel or a family event that brings them to the area. My husband and I travel a great deal, so we stocked the amenities we like to see when we are away.
