About the Homestay
I'm a Phd student and travel a lot for work - looking to give up my personal space to a reliable person visiting LA. You'll be living in Santa Monica, 5 minutes walk to the beach, 10 minutes from the pier. You’ll have your private room, but share the kitchen / living room with a room-mate - a fun, respectful Phd student (who mostly likes to keep to himself!).
You’re welcome to use the stove, fridge and microwave.
- Internet Access
- Air Conditioning
Bedrooms available for booking

How do I book?
Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.
When do I pay?

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
