Tracy is a very warm and loving personality, her place is very clean, and the bedding is extremely comfortable. The place is also reflective of Tracy's connection with art, so has the funky art appearance.
One very important feature that is not obvious from the airbnb site is that the room is one of several in the same house that are rented, so while the international youth hostel hustle and bustle of people coming and going from 7:00am to 2:00 am is fun and exciting for youthful world travelers, business and professional people will probably want to book her self-contained flat property. (The stairs for the attic space she rents goes directly above the foot of the bed in the angel room, but if you are a heavy sleeper or are used to youth hostels, this won't be a problem, and also of course is no issue when no one is staying there.) I think it is ethical to know this in advance of deciding to stay there, however.
Also, while cute or exotic looking from post-modern artistic points of view, serious Buddhist practitioners might have their religious sensibilities challenged by the decapitated Buddha heads (a "chic" art form begun from colonial-era art thieves stealing the heads from Asian temple statues and selling them to Westerners,) and Buddha images displayed from on the floor (usually such images are only kept in high places in traditional Buddhist culture). But I got no sense that Tracy means any harm by these things; it is all very innocent and typical CA-style DIY spirituality, but it is something to bear in mind for religiously-sensitive Buddhist people. (One never sees a head of Jesus or Star of David being used in such kinds of art decorations-I don't think it would be so appreciated.)
The shower bathroom is awesome, and the garden beautiful with blooming flowers; the 24-hr fountain has a sound like rain and the pond has real fish in it like you would see in Asia.
In sum, this room is very sweet with secure locks. I think the space is a bit over-priced at $75, and is worth more like $40, but I guess because of the prime location it can fetch that price. Her self-contained flat (listed separately) though is definitely worth the price; if i ever stay there again it will be in that space.
Groovy, cozy, serene hideaway in Venice. Awesome location. I never met the hosts, but they emailed clear instructions on how to get in, etc., and were very responsive to emails and texts when I had questions.
I only met Tracy briefly but she seems like a very nice, helpful person. The room itself is very conveniently located a 2 minute walk to Abbot Kinney, it's comfortable and clean, warm, quiet, the wifi works great and the whole process of checking in, getting in/out etc is seamless. Also parking is a breeze on this street if you have a car. Recommended!
This was my 2nd visit with Tracy. Really enjoyed her hospitality and property. Recommend property to anyone looking to stay in the Venice Beach area.
Tracy is a warm and wonderful person. The place is very cozy and quite surprising. I reccomand it !
Tracy is warm and friendly and her place is amazing. We loved our stay there. Highly recommended
Natasha and I had ana amazing time at the castle in the enchanted gardens! It really is a small castle in enchanted gardens (I was an instagram fiend all weekend). The property is flowing with all mediums of art. Simply wonderful. Everything seems to have a specific place and specific meaning. Tracy was a warm and welcoming host. The location was a short walk to the beach and an even shorter walk to Abbot Kinney. I definitely recommend staying here!
Thank you Tracy for your kindness and flexibility. The grounds were beautiful and the space was very well cared for. :)
