Relais in LA - Truly Your Home Away From Home

Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Los Angeles, California
I started this in April 2014 & although I have only 4 reviews on TripAdvisor, I have 102 total reviews (from guests spending the weekend to guests spending over a month) and they are all 5 Star reviews. I tailor each guests stay to their needs & desires by providing their food choices and their music, movies & book selections as well as tips and suggestions on what might interest them while they are here. I can also prepare meals for you in any manner you would like and for any diet at additional cost, there are 3 sample menus on my website on the amenities page.

Completely redefining the travel rental experience; personal choices, privacy & concierge like service. If you just want a “place to crash or party” this IS NOT the place. If you want to be able to relax and feel at home, like or love to cook, read books (900 +...

Interaction with guests
I put my 'title' on my business cards as 'Host, Concierge, Proprietor' as that's how I view it. I'm the host and I'm available on my cell phone for text or calls from 7AM to 10PM (when my phone 'goes to sleep' I get any calls or texts in the morning) for whatever you need. I grew up here so tips, suggestions, reservations, the best way to get somewhere and when the best time to go and come back etc are yours for the asking. The interaction is completely up to you, I'm willing to do whatever you want or need virtually whenever you would like it. I shop the Santa Monica farmers market every Wednesday for fresh fruit, flowers, eggs, oranges for juicing etc. If you want complete privacy and to be left alone just let me know.

Great home and cozy stay. Couldn't ask for anything more- from the cloud like bed to the local organic produce provided, I really felt right at home. In fact, I wish this were my home! Location is great, close to the airport and easy access...More

About the neighbourhood
A quiet, safe residential neighborhood with easy parking, close to LAX, 405 (N/S) & 105 (E/W) freeways, major roads & arteries so it's easy to get anywhere. My mom & grandparents bought the duplex in 1963. Westchester Golf Course is a wedge away, with Westchester Park (public swimming pool in summer) next to it. Shopping is very close Trader Joe's, CVS, Kohl's, Ralph's market etc. are less than a mile with Westfield Culver City mall 2 miles, El Segundo & Manhattan Village Mall 3-4 miles. There are many, many movie theaters, restaurants, bars within 1-5 miles. Marina Del Rey, Playa Del Rey, Venice Santa Monica, Culver City, West LA, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach are all within 10-15 miles at the most. A car is recommended, it's LA, but s... more

Easy to get here, very close to LAX & all the car rentals (less than 2 miles). There is a dedicated parking spot for you, a car is recommended, but Lyft & Uber are readily available as are LA, Santa Monica & Culver City Bus lines that go a long way. There are 2 Metro rail line stations for different routes within 4 miles with another that will open in 2018 for another line. Close to the 405 & 105 freeways & many major roads so it's easy to get a lot of places, the nearest beach is 2.5 miles.
