I own a small yoga/dance/fitness studio. (You are welcome to come workout there during your visit.)
I'm happy and healthy.
I love to dance, meditate, laugh, eat delicious food, practice yoga, travel, connect with people.
I am small of stature, but mighty of heart and very amiable.
I love people, birds and cats.
I love to have fresh-cut flowers in my house.
Spread LOVE (and I live by it.)
I want my guests to be comfortable and to feel welcome.
I want to keep my home clean for my guests and for myself.
I offer coffee, tea and toast, butter and jam for breakfast. If you want to make your own breakfast, you can use my fridge and the all the kitchen gear. You can even use all of my myriad condiments, but I ask that you clean up after yourself.
There's a Trader Joe's and a regular grocery store within walking distance.
I keep a small shelf and a larger drawer available for your groceries in my fridge.
I'll have a refreshing beverage available for you when you arrive.
My driveway will host several cars, so you can use it if you wish.
My neighborhood is awesome--quiet family area for the most part, yet active with folks walking their dogs and going for a jog in the mornings. My neighbors are friendly and kind.
The location of my neighborhood is perfectly situated--close to downtown Culver City and an easy drive to Venice ( I can show you how to get to my surf spot with free parking), Santa Monica, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, LAX, etc.
My house is within walking distance to The Culver Studios, Sony Pictures Studios and The Hayden Tract (where there are many tech, production and online companies situated) in case you are here for work.
I'm an L.A. native, so I can give you info on some great places to check out, including the best star sightings in L.A.
For Travel While I'm Visiting:
I like when the bedroom has curtains or shades or shutters that keep the dark in until 8 or 9 am.
I like a good pillow or 2 or 3.
It's best for me when there's NOT a very loud bar under the bedroom window where loud people are talking until 2 or 3 in the morning.
I like a clean bathroom with a tub I can soak in for 20 minutes, or more.
I like when the hosts are friendly and sit down for a beer or a cup of tea, or a bowl of ice cream with me at some point during my stay.
