I'm a musician who travels abroad months out of the year for work but loves Venice Beach, my friends, cooking, yoga and making music. I feel quite lucky to be able to do what I do and see what I see! :)

Shana a été une hotesse parfaite. La maison était tel que décrite, très hospitalière et chaleureuse, le jardin est magnifique, le quartier est tranquille. Me sachant gastronome, elle a sue me fournir de très bonne adresse. Toujours disponible à répondre à mes messages textes. Enfin,
j' aimerais garder de secret pour moi-même, mais la vie est faite pour être partagé.
Look up 'gracious host' in the encyclopedia... go ahead, I'll wait...
You found Shana's picture, didn't you? Truthfully, I'm sitting here kind of stumped as to how to properly represent the experience in a ‘review’ without gushing (I've even entertained writing a bad review - to make it easier for me to stay there next time I travel to LA). I feel like I stumbled on a small piece of perfect.
The house is beautiful, the room is super comfortable, with great furniture and a very comfortable bed, the kitchen has everything and you ARE encouraged to cook. In fact, if you cook, bring your A game.
Parking is a breeze and it's a straight shot down Rose Avenue to the middle of Venice. But far enough away to have all the peace and quiet you'd want from a home.
Now, to get back to the host... she's marvelous. Not a day went by that I didn't feel I totally lucked out to find someone so welcoming, AND so interesting to be around. The decor is super cool, you feel hipper just being in the place, and the backyard is awesome.
Is that enough? Have I convinced you that this is the place to stay on your visit? Good. But you better hurry because I’m booking again next time I go.
Shanas place is like a warm hug on a cold winters day. The house is beautiful and the backyard will take your breath away. Shana has everything you need to make this a great LA stay. It's always a pleasure staying at her house. We love u Shana. You are the hostess with the mostess!!
I was a last-minute business traveller, the worst kind! Shana had such great reviews, I thought I'd give her a try. She had a lot going on - and welcomed me to join her and her friends. So I certainly second the sentiment about the place having fun decorations (I am going to steal an idea that was in her bathroom...), her being a great cook, and her being a great hostest - and extend that to even her friends being super-chill and friendly. Def. high up on my short list of places to stay when I'm in LA!
Shana is warm and friendly and a fantastic host. I loved staying with her. The house is in a very convenient position, close to both the 101 & the 405, so it was easy to navigate to anywhere in LA.
She has a great garden too!
We all decided that if Shana ever needs a second career - it could be in interior design/decoration. On a sunny Sunday morning we cooked, put on music and enjoyed the lovely deck for brunch. That possibility alone makes me pretty sure I'll never choose to stay in a hotel again when there are other options like this. Shana is a lovely host who communicated promptly throughout our arrangements. She thoughtfully left beautiful toiletries in the bath and gourmet treats in the kitchen upon our arrival. This was my first Airbnb experience and it was superb!
Shana was an incredible host; the house and garden were beautiful, the location was ideal and her cooking beat all the restaurants! We had a great time here and couldn't have asked for a better stay. Thank you!
This is an absolutely amazing house to stay in! The artful cozy house with a massive lovely backyard is more than a traveler can ask for. We had four people, me and my gf, and her parents, sharing the two bdrm entire house. It was a total joy for the whole week.
The location is a great plus. Close to all best beaches, santa monica area, also attractions like getty center and getty villa.
Shana is a very nice host. Also we did not have the chance to meet during my stay, we communicated via text and always got the immediate response. Her two pages long instruction/introduction helped us greatly.
All in all, Shana's place is an irresistible choice for anyone who wants a memorable vacation in LA.
Words really cannot describe how wonderful Shana's home and hospitality were on our trip to LA. The house was stunning and beautifully decorated. Photos really do no justice for the size and splendour of the garden and the household layout. We spent many happy afternoons basking in the sunlight of the garden, or following up many of the recommendations which Shana kindly gave us.
The house has such an amazing zen, and contains every amenity one could hope for. It was also so nice to live in a home, rather than an impersonal purpose-built rental home, as we really came to feel like we lived in the area.
Shana gave us so many heads up on cool things to do, places to eat, things to see and many useful tips on such things as grocery shopping. She really was a perfect host.
I would recommend anyone travelling to LA to stay in this wonderful bit of paradise Shana so luckily lives in. It really is a very special place. Thanks again Shana, we had such a wondeful trip to LA.
I loved spending my stay in Venice with Shana. She is a wonderful and creative person and I entered her door as a guest and I left her home as a friend. Miss her already.
Shana was great! No problem whatsoever.
Shana was a wonderful guest and we loved hosting her! She is welcome back anytime!
Thank you for everything! We had such a lovely time. xxo
