My LA experience was gilded with a final stay at Julie & Karin's cosy Airbnb offering. A truly gifted and genius find of inspirational hosts and a comfy bed. I wished I could have stayed longer to get to know this remarkable family. We were destined to meet! Thanks for making me feel so welcome and look forward to seeing you again in LA, UK or Fiji?

I stayed with Julie and Karin for only three nights but wished it was longer! I had a wonderful stay with them and was made to feel right at home. The house is located on a quiet street off of a main road so you're not far from where you need to go. With a car you can easily take day trips to LA, Malibu and the nearby Topanga Canyon to go hiking. The bedroom itself is very spacious and comfy with a large, clean shared bathroom right next to it. I would definitely recommend staying here to a single or couple that are looking to stay outside of LA, and are after a warm-homely place. No doubt I will be back there soon as well! : )

Julie and Karin were everything I read about and more. Kind, gracious, flexible and generous. They let me share as much time with them as I wanted and it was never enough. These are two very sweet, hardworking and smart ladies. Snowboarding together this winter for sure!!

I stayed with Julie and Karin for three and a half weeks, and would highly recommend them. They were hospitable, helpful, kind, thoughtful and friendly. My bedroom was very comfy, with a great bed and enough space for everything. The location in The Valley, was very convenient for me, as I had a course to attend nearby, and public transport was handy, as I didn't have a car. I would probably recommend having a car though, if you really want ease of getting around, and you want to do a bit of sight seeing. The public transport is there, but it is slow and not so easy to negotiate! I really enjoyed getting to know Julie and Karin a little, and some of the discussions we had were really interesting and thought provoking. This accommodation situation, for me, was far preferable to staying in an anonymous hotel, and also far cheaper! So much nicer to be part of a household, and essentially, that is what it is - you are sharing a home and participating in a household. Of course, if you are going to be out for the bulk of the time, you are mainly just coming back to a cosy and comfy bedroom to use, and a good shower, plus a kitchen if you need one to do some cooking. Julie and Karin are not at all intrusive and do leave you to your own devices of course, but they also regularly check to see if you need anything. Personally, I really enjoyed the set up where I could feel like I was living in a shared household, as I was there to do a course, and not so much to sight see (although I managed to do that too!). Overall, I would definitely recommend these wonderful hosts. Thanks so much Julie and Karin for your wonderful hospitality!

Although the house is close to Topanga Canyong Blvd it is located on quiet street and you do not hear traffic noise. No problem parking on street. It is convenient to 101 FWY (5 mins) and beaches and PCH (15-20 mins). Room was clean and comfortable. Julie and Karin are great gals, very welcoming in making me feel at home. They always asked me how my day was and invited me to join them for a drink or meal. I stayed 6 nights and was out all day every day so I really did not take them up on their hospitality. But it was still nice to feel included .
