I am a gardener. Everything on this property was dug and planted by me. My garden is designed to attract songbirds and beneficial insects, so organic methods only used. There's always something to watch around here, especially hummingbirds.
My husband, Mark, and I love to travel. My favorite destinations are the Caribbean and Hawaii, where we enjoy snorkeling, hiking, botanical gardens, and local foods. Lots of my garden inspiration comes from our travels.
We have lived in this Santa Monica apartment for nearly 30 years. We raised two great kids here, one an entomologist, one a veterinarian.
You have found my listing under "private room" not "whole apartment." Therefore, you understand that you are occupying rooms within our home. While your space has a separate, keyed entrance, you will hear us from your suite's living room, where the sofa is. Much like visiting friends or family, you understand that you will hear us talking, water running, and footsteps- the same way we can here same from your suite. We will be quiet at 11:00 pm, and expect same from our Airbnb guests.
If this is not acceptable, kindly choose "whole home" rather than "private room". A whole home is not legal in Santa Monica, you will need to search in other areas where that is legal.
Los Angeles and Santa Monica are known as liberal, progressive, multi-cultural cities welcoming all who enjoy peaceful interactions among many different cultures. We embrace that welcoming community.
