Welcome to a furnished, en-suite bedroom in a quiet modern Japanese architectural home in Bel Air. Minutes from UCLA, Getty Center Museum, Beverly Hills, Century City, Santa Monica & Hollywood. Fully equipped kitchen, pond-waterfall gardens, tea hut, all home amenities.

The space

Our unique home, co-designed by a feng shui master, features tatami mat spaces, shoji screen doors, Japanese and conventional dining areas, wood-burning fireplaces, garden views and external access from every room. There are quality art and artifact appointments throughout the house and grounds. A Kyoto landscape architect designed the private, authentic gardens, with a spacious deck, concealed hearth fire pit (ideal for champagne and toasted marshmallows on a moon-gazing night), secluded quiescent grotto, in addition to the stream, ponds, waterfalls, stone and wood bridges, and hillside tea/meditation hut. Japanese pine giant bonsai trees, bamboos, gingko trees, Japanese maples, rare palms, exotic grasses and seasonal flora populate the grounds. You’ll find yourself taking a cup to the grotto, deck or tea hut, and quietly listening to the breeze, the deer, and the garden.

Interaction with guests

We (Don and Zach, father and son) both were born in West Los Angeles and have resided here most of our lives. We are easy going, accessible, fun, considerate and sociable. We enjoy hanging out with friends, adventure traveling, meeting new people from all over the world, yoga, snow and beach, and helping others appreciate the Westside, Los Angeles and California as much as we do. We have hosted many friends and guests at our house. We are always open to them (suggestions, tips, directions, list of faves, assistance) while being very respectful of their privacy (personal, space, social media and otherwise). We love our home and environs, and look forward to sharing them with you and making your stay here comfortable, easy and fun.

I stayed at Don's place for 10 days and it was perfect. Don was extremely gracious, kind and hospitable. Everything, right down to the tiniest detail, was fully thought out and expertly implemented to make this one of the best Airbnb experiences I've had.

This is truly an exquisite place and lives up to everything you see in the pictures and the wonderful reviews. We have visited many times and cannot think of any place else we would stay when visiting LA! The host is amazing, gracious, friendly, helpful, and really makes you feel at home. What more can you ask for? Also, the location can't be beat. If you have a student going to UCLA, its basically right next door and is the perfect place to stay when visiting. Thank you Don as always for your hospitality and we look forward to many more visits!!

Gorgeous upscale Zen-design home, upscale Bel Air neighborhood, gracious and wonderful host. Don spends most of his time in the north side of the home (office, etc.), which pretty much gave us the whole house to ourselves, living room, dining, kit, outside Zen gardens, etc.. Driveway parking. Close to UCLA and 405. Tony Stark's house is just down the street :-) Thanks, Don. Hope to be back soon.

What can be said about the perfect host and the perfect place? Don is an extraordinarily gracious and generous host. I felt like one of the family -- a very, very nice family, indeed. The place is beautiful inside and out. So peaceful. My stay was terrific in every respect.
