We love our place and welcome you to enjoy it as well when we travel. The apartment has everything you need to cook, sleep and relax. But the best lays outside of it. The Beach, Marina, Venice Broadwalk, 30+ restaurants, cafes all walking distance.
The place has one queen bed and a single bed/couch in the dining room. If you are traveling with a child you are welcome to use the toddler size bed, toys and books of our daughter. She likes sharing just as we do. Kitchen is fully set up for cooking with full size fridge, dishwasher, stove and microwave. We have a music system at our place but no TV as we rarely watch it (too much fun stuff to do). Bring your own laptop and you can watch movies on-line. We have air conditioner although rarely use it as our windows are always wide open to the ocean breeze. Our balcony facing south overlooking tennis courts and trees, no cars, no people walking by, we even don't have to close our blinds. That's the best.
If you have a car we will provide you with free guest permit to park in the gated parking structure of the complex (just let us know that you need one).
You will be able to use the whole living space (except for three closets where we keep our personal stuff) plus all the amenities: gated parking, laundry, dry cleaners, gym, business center, heated pool, hot tub, sauna, tennis and basketball courts, playground, clubhouse and convenience store (extremely useful sometimes).
Interaction with guests
Since we will be traveling we will leave you written instructions about everything and sometimes will be available though the phone. Ask as many question as you like beforehand and happy to give suggestions on great places to see in the area, good food and equipment rentals.
Other things to note
No pets, sorry! Not that we don't like them but our leasing agreement doesn't allow it.
If you need to send a mail or a package to our address please coordinate with us: it may be tricky for you to pick it up.
We appreciate if you follow those house rules. No smoking, we are all sensitive to the smoke smell. Quiet hours are 10pm to 7am, please, be mindful of our neighbors whom we never hear as well so it's mutual. If you don't mind take your shoes off when come in: the apartment is carpeted. Please wash the dishes or load them in the dishwasher and start before leaving. You are responsible for throwing away your trash: trash rooms are located at the end of the hallway on each floor. The reason is to avoid the smell: there may be a several days gap between your stay and our coming back.
We are outdoorsy family of three who enjoys pretty much any possible fun and challenging activity. Our favorite destinations so far are backpacking in Yosemite, climbing in Joshua Tree, snowboarding in Mammoth and surfing at our home Venice beach. We like to discover new places and explore. We are not very picky, minimalistic and low maintenance people. I never had a place we stayed I did not like: there is always something special about each one. We love our home and happy to share it when we are traveling. It's simple, clean and close to everything. It doesn't have a TV as we barely watch it but it has books and many kinds of tea in the kitchen to make warm conversations.
