Our colorful, light-filled home affords you the best of indoor/outdoor living. Every room but the kitchen has French doors and we keep our back doors open to enjoy the sea breezes. We have a drought-resistant front garden with hummingbirds, monarch butterflies, a fountain and Balinese gate and in back a patio for al fresco dining and a garden as well. Our 1400 sq. ft. (130 sq. meters) home has a sweet and happy vibe with hardwood floors and Mexican and Balinese folk art. The master bedroom has a queen bed and its own bathroom. The living room/dining room is a large open space with French doors and windows opening to the patio with a sofa that makes into 2 very comfortable single beds. There are two additional sitting rooms/offices, a second bathroom and a laundry room with washer and dryer. There is a large flat screen TV with Directv, streaming Netflix, WI-FI,DVD player and stereo system.

We are on a quiet cul-de-sac, centrally located on the desirable westside, minutes from Venice Beach and Malibu, shopping in Santa Monica & Beverly Hills, Boystown in West Hollywood, hiking in Topanga Canyon and downtown LA. Disneyland is 50 minutes away. We love LA with its perfect weather, diversity and casual lifestyle. Use of a car is negotiable.

We stayed at Stephanie and Lee Ann's home for a long weekend in Los Angeles. I live in San Francisco. Their home is warm and inviting and very comfortable. It is ideally located for visiting LA and we were interested in an Art filled weekend. We skyped and emailed before we made the exchange. The neighborhood is very safe and charming. Stephanie and Lee Ann were very welcoming and generous exchangers. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly! Diane

We arranged our exchange really quickly but Stephanie & Lee Ann were so well organised and good about getting back to us that everything went very smoothly. Their beautiful house is in such a nice area with lots of local stores and places to eat, and best of all, only a short drive down to Santa Monica beaches. We had everything we needed during our stay and we felt so comfortable, especially relaxing in the fantastic outdoor spaces.

Stephanie & Lee Ann are real LA locals and know so much about the city and we really enjoyed taking their recommendations of things to do and see. Likewise, during the exchange we kept in touch and we had a vey meaningful and rewarding exchange. If you get the chance, we would definitely recommend trying to organise an exchange with them; we left with such great memories and reminded us what a great experience home exchanges can be.
