Meet Vanessa

Vanessa’s home in South Los Angeles has been in her family for decades. After her mother passed away, Vanessa worried about how she could afford to keep her home. She decided to open her doors to travelers, and signed up to host on Airbnb. Now, her guests are not only helping her supplement her small fixed income, but she loves showing them the best that her neighborhood has to offer.
