Listen to birds sing and admire the secluded gardens that surround this private, peaceful guesthouse set in the heart of the bustling city. Sip coffee or tea in the fully stocked kitchen, or stream a movie and enjoy the great vibes of El Nido Amour. This guesthouse is newly painted, and we've upgraded the bedroom furniture, but the photos don't show these sweet improvements yet. We promote sustainable environmental practices. We donate 2% of all earnings to non-profits focused on housing for those in need. Smoking is not permitted on this property. The 2nd bed is a sofabed in the living room.
“El Nido Amour is filled with love in addition to clean lines and contemporary decor. It was entirely upgraded and painted in mid-September 2019 in the colour pállate of nature. It’s location is in the rear of my property, totally secluded from the street with a tiny green garden all around. You will have privacy, quiet and peace in this enchanted environment right in the heart of bustling Los Angeles.”

Hosting people is one of my SUPERPOWERS and I love it! AirBnB brings the world to me and I simply love people and helping them to feel comfortable in a new place. I own a small yoga/dance/fitness studio. (You are welcome to come workout there during your visit.) I'm happy and healthy. I love to dance, laugh, prepare and eat delicious food, practice yoga, meditate, travel, connect with people. I am small of stature, but mighty of heart and very amiable. I love people, birds and cats. I love to have fresh-cut flowers or lovely blooming orchids in my house. My motto: Spread LOVE (and I live by it.) For Hosting: I want my guests to be comfortable and to feel welcome. I keep my home clean and beautiful for my guests and for myself. I offer coffee, tea and breakfast items by request or by my intuition. If you let me know your preferences for a light breakfast, I will undertake to organize these things for you before or even during your arrival. If you want to make your own breakfast, (if you're staying in my house in my guest room) you can use my fridge and the all the kitchen gear. You can even use all of my myriad condiments, but I ask that you clean up after yourself. (El Nido Amour, my lovely casita, guest house has it's own kitchen with all the goodies provided.) There's a Trader Joe's, a beautiful new healthy grocery co-op and a Sprouts grocery store within walking distance--all excellent and quite nearby. I keep a shelf and a larger drawer available for your groceries in my fridge in my home. El Nido has it's very own refrigerator. I'll have a refreshing beverage available for you when you arrive. My driveway will host several cars, so you can use it if you pre-organize this with me. My neighborhood is awesome--quiet family area for the most part, yet active with folks walking their dogs and going for a jog in the mornings. My neighbors are friendly and kind. The location of my neighborhood is perfectly situated--close to downtown Culver City (DTCC) and an easy drive to Venice ( I can show you how to get to my surf spot with free parking), Santa Monica, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, LAX, etc. My home is within walking distance to The Culver Studios (soon to be Amazon Studios) , Sony Pictures Studios and The Hayden Tract (where there are many tech, production and online companies situated), plus the new HBO headquarters are under construction very nearby too, in case you are here for work. I'm an L.A. native, so I can give you info on some great places to check out, including the best star sightings in L.A. For Travel While I'm Visiting: I like when the bedroom has curtains or shades or shutters that keep the dark in until 8 or 9 am. I like 2 or 3 great pillows. It's best for me when there's NOT a very loud bar under the bedroom window where loud people are talking until 2 or 3 in the morning. I like a clean bathroom with a tub I can soak in for 20 minutes, or more. I like when the hosts are friendly and sit down for a beer or a cup of tea, or a bowl of ice cream with me at some point during my stay. If there is a language difference, I like when my host gives me a little extra help in navigating the neighborhood.
