On the top floor of an older building: 10 min from LAX, walking distance from bars/diner/restaurants. Freeways near. Sweet indoor-only older cat that must be fed.
2 guests max with no exceptions. Our apartment is on the top floor of a 3 story, older building in West Los Angeles. Rooftop access (ends at 10pm) for smoking/gazing, etc. is down the hall, right past apt 335. We have a big screen tv with the Amazon fire stick, and wifi. 2 people can sleep in our tempurpedic bed, or you can split up with one person on the couch - just use a cover sheet on the couch! Full access to our small kitchen. You must feed our cat every day and make sure he doesn't get out the door, which he doesn't try unless it's left open.
Easy and free street parking, just read the street sweeping signs for Wed/Thursday!
10 min drive to LAX. 3 mile drive to Venice Beach/Venice Boardwalk. 55 min walk to Playa del Rey beach, down the Ballona Creek bike path. 20 min walk to grocery stores. 5 min walk to restaurants.
ONLY USE THE ALTERNATE ENTRANCE TO THE BUILDING - never the main lobby!
OFF LIMITS: anything behind the shoji screen in the living room and our bedroom closet! Any drawers/cabinets are off limits except in the kitchen. If you need anything text or call me, NEVER the manager!
You can text or call me any time (never the manager!), and please do, for any questions about how to use the tv, where things and places are, the cat, etc. If anyone asks, you are a friend visiting me!
You need both a building key and an apartment key. I will leave both in the fire hydrant box at the alternate entrance to the building - please only use this entrance for your entire stay! (Never the main lobby). Facing the building from the street, the alternate entrance is to the left of the main lobby, and to the left of the garage at the top of the driveway, and is kind of hidden behind a tall bush. Once inside the door, take the stairs all the way up to the top floor, you'll turn right (thru a door), and take the hallways all the way around to apt 339 (peace doormat and chimes). You will leave the keys in the apartment when you check out, and lock the apartment door knob behind you.
2 guests max with no exceptions.
DO NOT USE THE MAIN LOBBY ENTRANCE! you will find your key at, and use the alternate entrance to the building (facing the building from the street, the alt entrance is to the left of the lobby, and to the left of the garage at the top of the driveway, behind a tall bush.)
NO SMOKING (except on our rooftop before 10pm - just remember that you're here visiting Debbie and she's at work!
No other pets besides my grumpy but absolutely harmless and sweet, lap kitty. Trust me, he won't tolerate other animals! And unfortunately, NO KIDS either (also because of the cat! It's just too risky because he's old.) Obviously you need to be nice to my cat. In the unlikely event that you smell the litter box before the end of your stay, you're welcome to scoop it out and take the bag to the trash shoot right down the hall right past apt 330.
We've never had a noise complaint against us, and we must keep it that way. We have a new, nosey manager, and he's not as chill as our old one. Steer clear of him, and if anyone asks, you're just a friend visiting me (while I'm at work!) (We live in a huge place with a ton of units, so the probability of seeing the manager can be slim!)
Do what you will, but don't take anything, don't break anything, and clean up after yourself please :)
Don't go through any drawers/cabinets except in the kitchen. If you need anything please text/call me and ask.
We'll be coming home from vacation, too, so please leave the apartment clean just like you found it!
Also, this is the cat's apartment, too. You can't close him out of the bedroom, leaving him alone and cut off from half of the apartment. He's a social kitty and wants to be around at least one person if anyone is home. Otherwise he'll scratch the bedroom door and cry all night.
Thanks so much!
