My husband and I are international couples We owned this home over 6 years . I travelled almost 100 countries around the world and lived 4 different continents, so very familiar with different culture and diversity. My house is located 10 mins walk to world famous Manhattan Beach( beach volleyball, surfing, biking riding, and all water sports) downtown and pier surrounded by restaurants, shops and more. 15 mins ride to LAX. So excellent short term stay in between your travels.
I would only have to ask my future guests who must like dogs and be friendly with dogs, they are all rescued ones from different places and they think this is their home. If you are not dog person, sorry this isn't for you.
