Interaction with Guests
WHAT YOU'LL HEAR FROM ME, "Hello and how can I help you? Do you need anything?" Never hesitate to ask for any help or referrals. We love to chat but, will always respect your privacy.
This is a safe, quiet Santa Monica neighborhood called Sunset Park. It is close to both Venice and Mar Vista. Easy walk to Ocean Park Blvd and all that you'll need. Most of the homes in the area are single family.
Groceries, coffee, etc. are within walking distance and a detailed map is provided in the unit. The Big Blue Bus (closest buses are #16, #44 and #8) safe, easy, inexpensive way to get around. And many visitors find it easy to connect with the larger LA Metro system and - new in 2016 - EXPO Line train which heads east/west from beach to downtown LA.
LAX is 6 miles to the south.
