guesty LA HOMES

By the Open Air Homes Team

Los Angeles, the City of Angels, is more than just palm trees, scenic views, and sunshine. It’s a mosaic of neighborhoods, each with its unique rhythm and flair. But for someone new to LA, this sprawling city can feel a little overwhelming when it comes to picking the perfect spot to settle down.

While you could plunge into the real estate market right away, we at **Open Air Homes** have a better suggestion. Why not stay with us for a while? Before you commit to a neighborhood, get a feel for it. Spend a month living in Brentwood, then jump over to Venice Beach for another month, and perhaps wind down in the peaceful ambience of Laurel Canyon for a third month. With a significant portion of our portfolio exclusive to Month+ rentals, you can truly immerse yourself in the LA lifestyle without any rush.

This unique approach offers prospective homeowners the luxury of time. Understand the city, the communities, and then make an informed decision on where you want your dream home to be. Let’s delve into some of the top neighborhoods and see what each offers:
