I work for a bank and have history in film.
Sofia wasn't actually there whilst I stayed at her place, but nevertheless she was an amazing host. She took care of everything perfectly, even whilst out of town.
The place itself is also great. It's located very close to the beach, which is always welcome; has a Whole Foods within 5 minutes walk for groceries; and a great little coffee shop just over the road.
My experience at Sofia was very good! We became good friends very easily and I spent a Saturday night just talking of interesting things (the way she describe situations, her theatrical mimic and her sarcasm is very fun) and drinking with her for long long time. At her home I also met a genial video maker, loved to watch his works. The room is confortable, the bed is big, the home style is super cool. The house is clean and well located, 8 minutes walking from the beach or Abbot Kinney, close also to good Whole Foods and Ralphs supermarkets. The host is easy to talk, very kind and helpful, I will miss her charming smile. I recommend this Airbnb.
Sofia was nice, very accommodating, great communicator, And I felt super comfortable. her place is in a great neighborhood, not even a 15 minute walk to Main St. Rarely saw Licorice, the house kitty, friendly, goes in and out mostly. For those of you who don't like felines :) , I wouldn't worry, as there is no smell etc. Sofia has some nice smelling hand wash in the kitchen , Meyers lemon by Savvy :).
Be sure that you are aware of the $60 cleaning charge, as it applies, whether you stay 1 day, or a week. week being the best deal. I booked so quick, I didn't notice,
**** it did not take away from my stay at all, just letting all the AirBnB'ers in on the skinny. :)
I would recommend staying with Sofia! She was an exemplary host and a welcoming conversationalist. She made me feel completely at home. All goods and services are required I required was within walking distance. Considering this was only my second experience with Airbnb, I would have to say Sofia place is a hard act to follow.
Sofia is a great host and warm and welcoming. The apartment is located in a great place in Venice, just a very short walk from main street where my yoga studio was located. Also, very close from Wholefoods market which was very useful.
I loved my stay here and it's good value for money. Room was clean and neighborhood was very quiet and I felt safe during the night.
I would definitely recommend Sofia's place to anyone visting Venice!
Sofia is a kind and fantastic host. The apartment is in an extremely convenient neighborhood. You can walk from the apartment to a laundry store, to Whole Foods, to CVS, to the beach, even to Abbot Kinney.
Sofia is a great host who did everything she could to make my stay as enjoyable as possible. She was out of town at the time but was very considerate and responsive when I needed her. I'm also not a cat person, but I must say - her cat became my little buddy during my stay and is one of the more affectionate cats I've come across! Also to note, this is a GREAT area to be in! You're walking distance to everything but parking is easily accessible, which is not always the case in Venice. The apartment is tucked behind a gated fence, so I also felt very safe. I would certainly stay there again and recommend it for anyone else!
The neighbourhood was very calm and quiet. The house is clean and a welcoming place, and Sofia is a great host to stay with.
My stay with Sofia was so wonderful!! She is such a kind, funny and charming person. I had such fun with her. The room was very spacious with a walk-in closet!! The house is warm, comfortable and located in a prime location in Venice. Wholefoods (Mecca) is down the road and you walk out and their are plenty of restaurants and bars. This has been one of my favourite Airbnb experience and will definitely come back!
Sofia is a fantastic host. Incredibly welcoming and friendly. Super easy to get along with. The apartment is in a great location, close to some excellent cafes and restaurants and just a short walk to the beach. The room is a good size, the apartment is lovely, clean and tidy with a well equipped kitchen and also full of character and charm! I really enjoyed my stay and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the iconic Venice beach area.
Sofia stayed at the Circle (our place in LA) and is a very sweet person. I am sure you will love to stay with her- she knows many fun people in LA and as a film maker she always has great projects she is working on...
I have been a friend of Sophia's going on 11 years. If you're looking for a clean and friendly host don't look any further. Sophia has a sense of style and her sweet sublet is just steps away from the ocean and the delights of Venice. You are also in good hands because Sofia is a traveler herself and she's guaranteed to have some handy tips of what's to see in the area.
Sofia's home is a lovely escape to the amazing beach town of Venice. She is a sweetheart and extremely accommodating to new arrivals. Her place is cute and very zen. She also keeps it extremely clean which is important to me. She's a short 10 minute walk to the beach and Rose is becoming the new Venice hot spot. So you'll be able to walk two blocks to yoga or Whole Foods and a slew of great restaurants. It's also only 10 min from both Main St (restaurants and shopping) and Abbott Kinney (COOL art street - kind of like SoHo). It's also a half a block from an amazing coffee shop where I met so many of the locals. I'd recommend this as a great getaway anytime. Her cat Licorice is also awesome and very friendly!
Here is where it's at! Sofia has a comfortable apartment in the middle of everything that's happening in Venice Beach and she's an honest and kind person.
This is a lucky find if you've been looking for a place in this highly sought after location.
