Enjoy a private studio nestled in a quiet, residential neighborhood near the beach, bike paths, restaurants and much more. With unrestricted street parking and keypad entry, your stay could not be more comfortable and worry free.

The space

Although the studio is attached to and a part of our home, it is completely private and separate. Your entrance to the property and to the suite is also completely private and you will have exclusive use of the backyard during your stay. At the back of the suite is a door that connects the suite to the rest of the house. There are actually 2 doors with an inch of foam insulation between them. The doors are always locked as we only enter the suite between reservations from the french doors which are accessible from the backyard.

The space offers a very comfortable twin sized bed allowing for ample room to navigate the suite.

A very comfortable task chair and desk are provided so you can setup your laptop and work, if you so desire. A 27" LCD monitor, USB keyboard and USB mouse are also made available for your added convenience.

If you want to make meals or store some food, the private kitchenette sports a compact fridge with freezer, microwave, large toaster oven, an induction hotplate and a George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor Electric Grill. Although there is no oven range or dishwasher, a separate kitchen sink and the hotplate make meal preparation simple and more convenient.

If you enjoy a hot cup of coffee or espresso in the morning, the Senseo coffee maker and Krups Espresso machine provide you the convenience of a local cafe right inside your own studio. Espresso pods and Senseo Dark Roast and Decaf Coffee Pods are included with the suite, making a quick, delicious, and environmentally friendly coffee available quickly and easily with almost no clean up.

Our home does not have central heat or air conditioning. However, a very effective and safe space heater is included if your room gets a little chilly. There is also a separate heater in the bathroom for your added convenience.

With the gentle breezes coming in from the ocean, air conditioning is rarely needed in our area. However, for those rare hot days, the suite includes a ceiling fan to keep you cooled down.

Once you have settled in and have enjoyed our many amenities, don't forget to open the doors and enjoy the private backyard with your own deck, outdoor table and chairs.

Guest access

Entrance from the street is separate and private to the left of the property with your back to the street. We provide keypad/keyless entry for the entrance door, so you don't have to worry about picking up the keys if you arrive late.

Enjoy the safety and convenience of keyless entry so you can arrive at anytime without worrying about disturbing your hosts.

Key codes for entry will be provided to you on the day of or day before your arrival. All key codes will stop functioning after your checkout for added security.

Interaction with guests

We respect each guest's desire for privacy but, if a guest wishes, we are more than happy to meet and greet with you to give you information about the suite, the neighborhood and Los Angeles, in general.

Other things to note

We are a family with young kids and a very friendly and quiet Cocker Spaniel. If you check-in please note that the suite and entrance to the suite are completely separate from our home. Our dog has no access to the private backyard or is he allowed access to the suite at anytime.

We live in a quiet family oriented neighborhood. We just ask our guests to respect the neighborhood and our space. Your comfort is our utmost priority!

Reed is a great host. I've stayed at his place twice and will always try to book his place when I'm in town. He is every accessible and the place is private and has everything.
