Make Yourself At Home: The Mayumi

If you’re arriving in Los Angeles for a while — you’re in town for pilot season, you’re relocating and need a place to crash while you look for an apartment, you’re working on a movie, overseeing the redecoration of a client’s home,  tweaking the redesign of a new e-commerce platform or brainstorming a new project with Southern California colleagues — figuring out where to bunk can be challenging. Hotels can be expensive and finding an AirBnB that offers flexible and long-term dates is difficult. 
The Mayumi, a new residential concept by HQ Development is poised to change that. Set to fling open its doors in Los Angeles next month, the Culver City-based 35 unit flexible stay residence caters to long-term visitors looking for a monthly all-inclusive residential stay alternative and creative space. Its central location puts it within easy driving distance of Playa Vista, Venice, Downtown, Culver City, Beverly Hills and Hollywood. Fully furnished, its price makes it a tempting alternative to crashing on a friend’s couch. 
Mayumi gives you the best of both worlds – a private haven and social hub. Created to provide an unparalleled living experience crafted on a foundation of design, flexibility, and community, Mayumi members can enjoy luxurious private rooms and common areas to connect with others.
Private rooms ensure each guest has the solitude they need with the luxuries they crave when they’re far from home: a soft water system and rain shower, plush towels, luxury linens, comfortable mattresses. Manage the lights, the shades and the thermostat directly from your smartphone. Chill out in front of a 50′ smart tv with Direct TV. Surf the web with free high-speed wifi. Weekly housekeeping keeps everything clean so you can focus on living. 
There’s a spacious kitchen, furnished with high-end appliances and fully-outfitted with pots, pans, dishes and glassware, and a dining area, meaning you don’t have to eat all of your meals out. An outdoor courtyard, complete with a firepit and a barbecue, allows you to enjoy Southern California’s gorgeous weather.
