I'm into cleanliness, luxurious comfort, quiet and making others feel as warm and welcome as possible. I'm an active, healthy, female in my 40's. I love to surf, hike and bike and am I'm originally from the Midwest, well traveled and speak several languages. I'm a French-American and have spent the last 30 years of my life divided between California and France and LOVE people of all races and cultures. Come and go as you please. I reside in the house just across the street if you need anything. I consider myself an awesome concierge so I'll definitely point you in the right direction for the best restaurants, where to get a pedicure or a massage, shopping, surf lessons and must-see locals spots. I want to make sure you feel ABSOLUTELY AT home and have all the ideal comforts one would want no matter how long you stay.

                      Why the Owner Chose Venice Beach:
                      Its location is ideal just steps to the beach with an ocean view and provides families and friends a great spot for a private get away. The marina penninsula beach community is unlike anyplace else in the world. people are genuinely happy so don't be surprised if someone smiles, says hello or stops to give you directions. That's just how we are here and you can walk, bike or skateboard to just any place. You don't really need a car. Just take a taxi or grab the bus when you need to.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      The location of this apartment is by far THE most desirable neighborhood in al of Los Angeles. The building is charming, with only has 4 units so it feels more like a little house than an apartment. Most of my guests dont want to leave the penninsula. they just fall in love with everthing you can see and do.
