I'm Erika ... I live in Santa Monica and I love my neighborhood. It's very convenient and quiet but within easy access to all the fun bars, restaurants, etc.
I am from Manchester, England originally, but have been here for the last 25+ years. My 22-year old son lives with me and he's an officer with the LAPD. We are both easy going and relaxed, and happy to help with any travel questions you may have.
