Hi, I am currently 29 years old who grew up in Costa Rica, then lived in New Zealand for a few years before coming to the US to study and now work and live. I live close to the beach because I love Surfing and the active lifestyle that people imagine when they think of California beaches. I also grew up in a rural area in Costa Rica so living "downtown" is not my deal. I am very easy going. Although I am planning on renting out my place when I am away, I would like to host a few visitors and share my apartment and Venice with the world. If you are looking for a convenient jumping off point to explore Venice, Santa Monica and LA, this is a great spot. Cheers!
