Akiko was lovely and very thoughtful as a host. The room was lovely and clean and also well stocked. Wifi was great and location was great (we had a car but bus service runs regularly) no complaints at all
The room was very cozy, with nice windows, orchids, and was super clean. Akiko was extremely friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. The location was good as well- away from the busy crowds, in a quieter area, but close to shops, not too far from the beach, and close to bus stops. Overall a great experience! And her dog is very sweet and very cute!
Amazing Stay . Fruit and Water everyday . The room was nice and big for myself . Literally 15 minute walk to beach . Safe and really quiet neighbourhood . Loved staying there wish i didn't have to leave . Also the dog is so sweet.
Thanks very much Akiko .
Akiko is amazing, and very welcoming. Home is safe and very clean. Rooms are very clean and so are the bathrooms! There is a wood fence around the front of the house, so even more safety. Akiko is very accomidating and there was a key for our bedroom. We were able to utilize one of the fridges, and Akiko told us which bus to take. Everytime we saw Akiko, she asked if we needed anything, and made sure that everything was okay.
I truly appreciate Akiko's genuine hospitality towards us, and would absolutely love to stay here again in the future.
Akiko's home is very calming and relaxing to be at.
Many thanks to Akiko for the kind words, and opening this home to us! Best trip ever!!!
Akiko always makes me feel very welcome. She always has fresh fruit in the room and water. It's a very quite atmosphere and I always get great rest there after a hard day. The neighborhood is fine. All her beds are extremely comfortable and all the rooms are nice.I stay there every time I have business in Santa Monica LA area. You do have to share bathrooms which has never been an issue so far.
Akiko's place is very nice and easy to stay at, although all rooms were rented, it was very quiet and comfortable. The room was nice and clean, so was the bathroom. We didn't use the kitchen.
Akiko was very helpful with parking the car.
We didn't have the chance to chat much to her but felt welcome at her place.
We recommend the place, especially if you come to SM by car - easy parking and short ways within the city.
It was very nice to stay w her n her dog chacha. I love that room especially a big n cozy bed! Close to Venice beach, I loved walk beach area n 3rd street :) it was my first time using air n b and I got the good impression from Akiko's place. I was good to stay, Akiko! Thank you and hope see you again for my next trip!
Akiko is an excellent host with a wonderful home. She did everything to make me feel at home, and I had an excellent stay. She has a very friendly dog named Chacha. She left fresh fruit in the bedroom, provided clean towels, and even made coffee every morning. I was in town for work, and needed an iron with ironing board. She had no problems providing me with everything I needed. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are in the area!
My stay with Akiko was amazing she was very friendly and knowledgeable. I was greeted warmly upon arrival. The room was sunny and well furnished with a lot of windows. Nice crisp fresh pressed linens on a comfortable bed. Nice fruit and water provided. I felt as if I was staying in an expensive hotel. Great location close to the beach in a nice neighborhood. Akiko's dog was cute timid and friendly. I was really made to feel at home and would recommend to everyone. I only wish my stay was longer. As someone moving to a new city she was a great ambassador.
This time my son became indebted, again.
Thank you so much.
