Comfortable, private bedroom for one in a quaint Californian home overlooking the expansive and plush Balboa park, great for sports or outdoor activities like picnics/BBQs. The neighborhood is picturesque, quiet, very safe, and family-friendly.

We welcome long term visits! We've had a lot of 3 month traveling nurses, medical students, artists and musicians. Looking forward to welcoming you!
We're looking for upbeat, vibrant people looking for a chilled out place to hang and stay.

If you're in town for a while-there is a fully-functional kitchen (with an espresso machine and milk brother for coffee lovers); We're very close to the farmer's market and several supermarkets like Ralph's, Smart and Final and Marshalls. There are also plenty of terrific restaurants nearby, including a lovely wine bar, as well as places to get coffee or a sandwich on-the-go (Subway, Philly-cheesesteak, the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Peets Coffee, etc.) for those in town on work.

There is also outdoor patio seating for you to enjoy fresh air in the backyard garden, with the scenic view of the park laid out in front of you and our fragrant orange tree. It's a great place to do morning yoga or to take your coffee/breakfast.

Guest access

The house is also ideally located: just a 20 minute drive from Hollywood and Universal and all other major tourist attractions, and the major freeways (101 and 405) are less than a mile away.
For people who value fitness even when traveling, the house is located very close to two LA fitnesses and a 24 hour fitness which offer 3-day free guest passes, as well as other smaller privately owned gyms.

Interaction with guests

I'm usually around so if any issues or questions pop up I'm happy and here to help.
Otherwise everyone just more or less does their own thing!

Other things to note

Street cleaning on Tuesday and Wednesday - so please watch the signs and move your car to the correct side of the street. I also have one available space in the driveway to share with my guests.

Scott was amazing with our guest. We had one of our friends stay in the area and he was immensely helpful. Though the guest didn't speak English, he was very helpful and made it work. Highly recommend.

Scott was a great host and the house is wonderful and in a great location for my needs. Everyone in the house is very friendly and communicable and willing to accommodate. Would consider staying again.

The location was very convenient, and a neat neighborhood next to a huge park. This was a last minute rental, but Scott was easy to communicate with, and plenty of parking on the street. He generously let me use his kitchen to prepare a dish for a potluck that night. This $ used to get me a full size bed and private bath, but sadly Airbnb prices in the area have gone up, I guess.

Scott was very nice and the room was homey. Lots of shelves to put my stuff. Stayed comfortably at this location for 4 months. Easy parking as well! Not too far from many restaurants.

Quiet house, great neighborhood, Scott and other tenant were lovely, peaceful backyard, easy parking. Scott was wonderful in that he allowed me to arrive a couple hours before my check in time. I had driven down from SF (gotten there earlier than his 5pm check in time so I could get groceries and set up for class the next morning) and he had the place ready to go for me. He is a very nice guy, I felt at ease staying in his home (as a gal traveling alone). The room itself is very basic and served the purpose I needed it for-to sleep. Scott and and his other renter are very quiet and keep to themselves, which I loved, since I'm quiet myself. I rarely saw anyone actually! Maybe every other day I'd catch a glimpse. Scott has a music room at the other end of the house that he records in and I never heard him with the doors closed as I think it's sound proofed? Anyhow, it was not a problem at all. The value is great if you book a month at a time, you cannot beat it. The only drawback I'd say is that the kitchen floor/counters/stove and bathroom toilet/floors were not very clean. Imagine...like...college apartment kind of clean? They aren't disgusting, just less clean than I like. And everyone has different levels of clean they like so who knows, maybe I like things extra clean. But, if you are a stickler for very clean then this is not the place for you. I didn't mind so much, the rest of the house was fine. I loved sitting in the backyard after work to study. It looks out on a park and feels great. I'd stay here again as you can't beat the price and Scott is a kind hearted guy who I felt comfortable living with.
