About the Homestay
I live in a gorgeous, tranquil part of Venice, California. Set just a little away from the sometimes rather manic area of main venice; My house is still only a five minute or drive away from the beach I have a gorgeous lush, peaceful back yard and a pretty sitting room to relax in ...
The house is in a great position -as its very close to the beach but also an easy hop onto the 10 freeway from here to get into Hollywood or beyond, or up the 405 to the Getty center and into the Valley or down south to San Diego. Its a very short ride into Santa Monica from here and all the amenities that it offers - swimming pool, cinema, shopping, bowling, The Broad Stage Theatre and The Santa Monica pier etc... and Topanga Canyon and Malibu are just up the coast .

About the Area
My house is located in a calm safe residential area in Venice. Its still very close to the Ocean and Abbott Kinney - but slightly set back away from the busy Venice Beach front. Its Right on the Santa Monica border so close to al that Santa Monica has to offer: the Swimming Pools, Shopping, Bowling, Broad Stage Theatre and Santa Monica Pier.. And slightly further afield Westwood and the Hammer Museum and the Geffen Playhouse.
A quick hop on the near i10 Freeway to Hollywood ( LACMA, Hollywood Blvd, Down town LA - Walt Disney Concert Hall, Mocca) and beyond, and the 405 up to the Getty Center and the Valley or down to San Diego. Its very convenient for the PCH which will take you up to Topanga Canyon, Malibu and beyond.

Please keep the noise down at night, no shoes in the house I'm afraid! No candles. Any food that is brought into the house must be taken away afterwards! And no other guests or strangers unless previously agreed with me beforehand. Please ask me before using the kitchen. But please treat my home as your own and feel very welcome. Thank you!

It was great to be back in LA! Sarah was very friendly and I felt welcome in her home from the moment I got there. I'd definitely come back here :) Thanks for all Sarah!
Sarah is a fantastic host and her house is beautiful and peaceful. Exactly what I was looking for after a difficult time. Thank you Sarah!
Sarah was wonderful - very accomodating. The bed was incredibly comfortable and her house is warm, fun and inviting. My plane didn't leave until midnight the night I checked out and she let me use the place as my base for the whole day - very kind.
Sarah's home is great ! Always clean, spacious & filled wth multiple sitting areas-both inside & out. Sarah is warm & very hospitable. She is quite knowledgeable about the area, which is centrally located to everything. Very comfortable bedding, set in a beautiful room.
A big plus is her love of animals. Very well behaved dogs whom are quite friendly & playful. They truly are little paws of love.
Totally a pleasant experience. Highly recommended & would stay at Sarah's again.
I would like to thank Sarah that she open her comfortable beautiful hose to me for 2 weeks, I had pleasant time at very quiet atmosphere, and she was so kind and helpful to me. I thank the God that he make me meet such nice person like her.
