We use LoveHomeSwap all the time when we travel. And since this is our spare place, I thought it would be great to list it here. This is a large 2000 sq foot apartment in a secured building on the second floor in Beverly Hills, California. It has windows on 3 sides and runs the whole length of the building, front to back. There is gated off street parking for two cars.
We just finished redecorating and completely building in new features... hardwood floors, granite and stainless steel kitchen, travertine bathrooms, new bed, and furnishings. Everything is set up and here for your comfort... except my two kitties which will stay with me at my other house.
We use this as one bedroom apartment but in actuality it is a three bedroom apt. I use one room as an office and the second bedroom as a second office. If you need that extra bedroom, I can easily put in a comfortable air mattress in that room and it will work fine. There are two full bathrooms and one half guest bathroom. There is a lovely little balcony surrounded with trees which is perfect for morning coffee or evening relaxing. I have a sonos sound system which allows you to wirelessly play music throughout the apartments and free wireless internet of course. There is NO television though. This is also a smoke free environment... except for incense.
Our place is on a very nice quiet street just two blocks off of Wilshire. It's centrally located to everything. Prime BH shopping is a mile away, West Hollywood is down the block, Santa Monica is about 7 miles away... I ride my bike there in about 35 minutes (but I ride fast).
Please let me know if you have any questions. And if you want a really cool living situation, check out my beautiful sailboat in Marina Del Rey... I listed that too and people are loving it.
Good luck and enjoy L.A. ~Sophie and Craig
