If you like to ride bikes, you are lucky, because that's the perfect way to see our unique part of Los Angeles. We will PROVIDE YOU WITH BIKES so you can ride to famous Venice Beach which is 10 blocks away or soak in the local bohemian artistic flavor that Venice is famous for. Abbot Kinney, where you can shop for antiques and eat in hip fab restaurants, is a five minute bike ride away, and so are the picturesque Venice Canals.

Also near by are shopping centers, movie theaters, and the very popular Santa Monica Pier where you can take a ride on a Ferris wheel over the ocean and hit the trendy bars and cafes on the upscale Santa Monica Promenade. During the summer you can ride the waves on boogie boards (we will supply them).

We provide all our guests with maps and recommendations on where to eat and have fun. We can also recommend outside services who can arrange a night tour of Hollywood's top bars and party spots. Wanna stay home - we have a DVD MOVIE COLLECTION to die for with a DVD player in your room.

Our home is 15 MINUTES FROM LAX and it is a $25 cab ride or a $1 bus ride. Santa Monica is 10 minutes away. If you want to go into Hollywood, the Valley, or Downtown all are about 30 minutes away depending on traffic, you will need a car and there is an Enterprise car rental nearby which will pick you up. We will PROVIDE YOU WITH AN OFF STREET PARKING SPOT. There are also several bus stops within a couple blocks.

So, to sum up -- included is WiFi, satellite TV, breakfast, bikes, boogie boards, and laughs. We are gay-friendly and have sweet little dogs and cats.

As your hostesses, we are available to give you advice on where to eat and play, yet we have a great respect to your privacy. We have many different kinds of guests, some want to chat and some just want to be left alone to work. Whatever type you are, you will be comfortable as our guests. Just read our reviews.

The best thing about our neighborhood is that it is safe to walk any time of night as it is a family neighbohood. We are close to the beach (10 blocks) and to Abbot Kinney which Esquire Magazine has called, "The hippest street in America." Also within walking distance are jazz clubs, great restaurants, and the famed Venice canals and boardwalk. The best thing to do is to hop on one of our bikes and ride on the bike path to Santa Monica for great shopping.

And if you like hiking, we are close to the Santa Monica Mountains which has incredible hiking trails. We have had guests that have just come for the hiking. Also, we are a 5 minute bike ride to the Marina Del Rey where you can rent a standup paddle board and go exploring the marina, either during the day (email hidden)is is my favorite thing to do and I just might join you!

We are located by three bus stops. But, if you want to explore Hollywood, we suggest renting a car as LA is not known for great public transportation.

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at Judy's residence there in Venice. She gave clear instructions every step of the way and was very helpful. We loved the location for going to Venice Beach, the Santa Monica Pier, Beaverly Hills, LAX and other beachy communities further south. Many thanks to Judy for the opportunity and would most definitely give her 5 stars!

Awesome place! Judy communicated everything we needed to know extremely clearly. The place was clean and ready to go when we got there. 10 minute bike ride to the beach and 20 minutes to DTLA with no traffic. Well worth it

The bedroom/bath have plenty of closet/shelf space to put your stuff. The house is quiet and the bed very comfortable. The location is in a great neighborhood with easy access to Venice Beach, shopping, restaurants, etc.

Response from Judy:
Hi Rose - I wish you told me that during your stay as all problems are fixable. The shower has an adjustment on it for the pressure you want. There is plenty of soap gel in the bathroom, and the wait for the hot water is because of conservation and the on demand hot water heater. We chose not to have it circulate 24/7, but it takes 2 to 3 minutes to arrive at bathrooms.
