My home is located right on the border of Santa Monica and Venice. From wikipedia:

Santa Monica:
Santa Monica is a beachfront city in western Los Angeles. Situated on Santa Monica Bay, it is bordered on three sides by the city of Los Angeles — Pacific Palisades on the northwest, Brentwood on the north, West Los Angeles on the northeast, Mar Vista on the east, and Venice on the southeast. Santa Monica is home to executives and Hollywood celebrities amongst others and it is a mixture of affluent, single-family neighborhoods, renters, surfers, young professionals, and students.

Venice is a beachfront neighborhood in the Westside of the city of Los Angeles. It is known for its canals, beaches and circus-like Ocean Front Walk, a two-and-a-half-mile pedestrian-only promenade that features performers, fortune-tellers, artists, and vendors. Venice was home to some of Los Angeles' early beat poets and artists and has served as an important cultural center of the city.

  • Danielle was a great host! She was a pleasure to deal with and very accomidating.
    Her home was absolutely lovely! It was clean, cozy, quiet, and beautifully decorated.
    The location is terrific being only blocks from Main Street which has a ton of cafés, restaurants and yoga & fitness studios. I didn't have a car during my stay and I didn't feel as if I needed one.
    I loved my stay and I highly recommend Danielle's lovely home! -Janine (NYC transplant:)

  • I have spent 2 weeks on my own in Danielle's flat in November and I absolutely loved it!
    At first I was impressed as the flat was perfectly tidy and clean, nicely decorated.
    Danielle was extremely friendly and even though I did not get to meet her, she always made sure that I was doing fine.
    Everything was well thought and greatly organised, and I felt home from the very first second!
    I was reading other comments that mentioned noises in the street - luckily nothing that I experienced. I was also worried about the sofa bed - being a light sleeper and as I came for a yoga training, I rather needed good nights sleep! but everything went fine and even though, yes, it is less comfortable than a real bed - I had great nights sleep.
    Location wise: the flat is at short walking distance from all the mains: Wholefood, Gratitude & moon Juice, Exhale Studio and Beach - ideal!
    In short, I definitely recommend Danielle's flat and I sincerely wish it was mine!!

  • Had a great stay at Danielle's place. She was extremely helpful and was easily contacted. The apartment was clean and comfortable in a quiet spot close to Santa Monica beach and other stuff.

  • Danielle's apartment was perfect for us! We loved the location - close enough to walk to the beach and also no problems with finding parking. We would definitely stay there again the next time we are in LA.

  • We really enjoyed our holiday at Danielles townhouse in Santa Monica. We loved the large apartment and the location in a really nice and quiet neighbourhoud just couple of minutes away from the beach. Danielle was a perfect host, it would be a pleasure to stay there again.

  • Our stay at Danielle's place was a breeze and a very nice part of our LA trip. We never got to meet her, but her dad brought us the keys and even let us check in earlier. Bed is a little bit uncomfortable in the long run, but is manageable for a week stay. Some noise do to back alley, but nothing major. Overall a great stay

  • We loved staying here. The townhouse is modern, clean, well-appointed and nicely decorated. It on the second floor in a structure with a gated entrance, which keeps it relatively quiet (although there were occasional loud drunks in the alley behind the unit). The bed is a sofa bed that is reasonably comfortable. Having two bathrooms was nice. There is no television but the WiFi is fast so you can easily stream whatever you want to watch on your laptop or tablet.

    The location is great, within walking distance of the beach and all the shops, restaurants and nightlife clustered around Main Street. The walk to Main Street, during the daytime, features a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean. Street parking is fine; we never had to park more than a block or so away.

    Danielle was an excellent host: prompt in her responses, gave us all the information we needed, and even left vouchers for a local fitness club (we didn't use them, instead opting for one of the many local yoga studios, but the thoughtfulness was appreciated).

    Excellent experience overall.

  • Das Townhouse war mit viel Geschmack fürs Einrichten ausgestattet. Die Grösse für 2 Personen ideal. In der Küche war alles vorhanden was es braucht. Es war sehr sauber. Das haben wir besonders geschätzt. Die Lage einfach super, ruhig, zentral gelegen und sehr sicher. Die ganze Wohnung ist lichtdurchflutet, wo wie man sich California vorstellt. Was uns nicht so gefallen hat war das Sofabett, welches unbequem war. Im Zimmer war noch ein Stepper, ein Pult, Waschmaschine und Tumbler. Man hatte kaum Platz einen Koffer hinzustellen. Alles war sehr eng. Es wäre besser, wenn dort ein richtiges Bett stehen würde, denn es sah eher so aus als wenn es sonst ein Büro wäre.
