Safe, quiet, clean room in West LA near Santa Monica. Two rooms are available for up to 3 guests. The main guest room has a double bed and desk; the second room has a single futon and serves as a meditation room when it's not occupied. NOTE: A cat lives on the premises.

The space

My home is conveniently located near shops and restaurants, a public library, Sunday Farmer's Market, and more. It's a half block from a park (with children's play area, swimming pool, skate park). Easy access to the beach, mountains, freeways. A short bus ride to UCLA. I'm happy to provide tips on local things to do, and even guidance on studying or meditating! The meditation room has a selection of books for your pleasure during your stay.

Guest access

Guests have access to the rooftop patio with sky view and meditation room. as well as laundry facilities. Limited access to the kitchen and living areas. (Just negotiate use of the kitchen and be sure to clean up after yourself.)

Interaction with guests

I am pretty busy, but I often work at home. I like to give guests space, but I'm available as needed. I can offer advice about local restaurants, museums, cultural events and other activities, hiking trails in the Santa Monica Mountains and more. For students, writers and thinkers, I'm happy to offer my home as a quiet space for working.

Loved (EMAIL HIDDEN)fortable arrangements, awesome rooftop patio, clean space, great access to the kitchen, and close to Hollywood, the beach, and all things LA. Marjorie was the perfect host. Highly recommend!

Marjorie is a very nice hostess who kindly & generously shared us with kitching room & living room for most time. The house is very near to super market "Smart&Final", which is about 10 minutes by walk.

Marjorie was a polite, helpful and accomodating host. Her house is in a safe neighbourbood which is comfortable to walk around. She was ready to receive us and explained things clearly so getting into the property was easy. A short walk down to the local grocery stores was pleasant and easy to find. Unfortunately for us, we were unable to see out our full booking as there was an issue with fleas (which we think may have been brought on by the futon). Throughout this circumstance Marjorie was apologetic and helpful, and refunded us the remainder of our trip. I am certain this was an unfortunate once off. And not something anyone could forsee. And inspite of our experience being cut short there, we are certain many more will still enjoy Marjorie's home and hospitality. Our circumstance aside, this would be the perfect space to stay in LA.

Response from Marjorie:
The flea situation is under control. I'm not convinced the fleas were in the mattress, but for the record, that was a spare mattress that was only used because of a last minute addition of a third person to the party, and the need for a third bed. The main guest room has a comfortable queen sized bed; the adjacent room has a single futon/cot. I brought in an extra futon for the third guest. As soon as I was alerted to a possible flea situation, I took action - washing the futon cover, sheets, etc. Future guests should know that I will not use the spare futon. One more clarification: I refunded MORE than the remainder of the trip, to compensate for this situation.

Marjorie is a great and very friendly host whom I am happy to recommend for a comfortable stay in a lovely house in West LA close to Santa Monica Blvd and Wilshire where you can take the bus to Santa Monica or Beverly Hills. Apartment is walking distance to Ralph or Trader Joe's for food shopping. There is a sweet cat, Oliver in the house and I was grateful to be able to bring my two cats to Marjorie's house. A very nice stay and I'd like to stay here again next time.

Marjorie was a fantastic hostess and provided a stellar experience. Having been cancelled at the very last moment by another Airbnb provider, this home was even better than the original location I had booked months in advance.
