About this listing
We've created our own beautiful retreat complete with water features and a dazzling pool. We're 6 mins from Bob Hope airport. We're close to Warner brothers, Universal Studios, Noho Arts district, a plethora of restaurants, bars and shops but you may not want to leave the backyard! Bountiful nooks and private areas. Comfort and beauty is our primary effort with our home. Please tell us a bit about yourself and your stay here! *Please ask about event/party and filming rates*
You will find artifacts from our travels including Nepal, India, Indonesia and Morocco. We have plenty of original art up as well (please ask if you are interested in purchasing!) Some of the art in our house depicts nudity and some depicts spiritual figures of different world religions. We embrace everyone and find beauty in all cultures globally which is reflected in our selection of reading material and decor. We have lots of comfy seating grounding natural materials around and plants. My other half is a builder and has restored some pieces such as the credenza under the TV as well as built and reupholstered some of the chairs you will see. The space is tranquil and filled with the love we have for it!
Outside you will find different trees, plants, and beautiful wildlife. Keep an eye our for the monarch butterflies this season and please let us know in your review what kind of birds came to visit while you were here!
You will have access to the entire house and pool. We keep the garage and back shed locked for owner use only.
Interaction with guests
I will greet you at the door to give you keys and a tour. If somehow we aren't able to coordinate, key location will be provided at time of booking along with a guest binder with a manual and other helpful information. Please be aware there may be times we may need to get into the garage during a guests stay which is separate from the house with a separate entrance. If this is a problem for you, please let me know beforehand otherwise you are agreeing to allow us full access to the garage during your stay. I am always available via email to help you with anything you need. You are my guest and I care about your experience!

Originally from SF California I am a city girl all the way! I enjoy local farmer's markets, street fairs and vegan cuisine. I work in the entertainment field and spend my off time tending to the plants and catching up on netflix. I love the quote "Home is not a place it's a feeling". Casa Tropical is a sanctuary for great memories and we welcome you!
