Ideal location! Upper of Spanish-style duplex. Renting lrg room with a comfy queen bed in our beautiful home on gorgeous, safe, quiet, palm-tree lined street. Lrg back and front yards, 3 porches/balconies, family-friendly (trampoline, toys, beach stuff) a block from Beverly Hills park. Lots of light. Walking distance to restaurants and more. A block from public transportation. Close to Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Venice, Santa Monica, LACMA, the Grove. Great A/C & heat. Two parking passes avail.
The room is large, sunny, has a high-end queen sized mattress, and a private bathroom (if you have a third person, I can bring an additional mattress in for the floor – also high end and super confortable). The home has great central air; tons of light; and is bright and cheerful. Fully equipped kitchen, but also walking distance to great restaurants (one block to Beverly Hills). 15 min. to beach (we have umbrellas, chairs, toys...) and 5 min to Museum Row. This is our home and we may be here as well, but we're happy to share it with a respectful individual or couple. I have an additional two rooms for rent in the same home if you have a larger party. Please check out my listing for a room with three beds (shared bathroom) at https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/14240222?checkin=09%2F30%2F2016&checkout=10%2F01%2F2016&guests=1&s=gDsh9eF4
I also have a room with one queen (shared bathroom) at https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/6094445?preview. Please email me if these links do not work. Also, I never rent out more than two rooms at a time – usually it's only one.
Feel free to use our fully equipped kitchen.
Interaction with guests
Happy to engage as much or as little as you like. Some folks like to use the home like they would a hotel (very little interaction) and I am fine with that and others like to share a glass of wine on the porch and share our life's adventures (also good!). I'll follow your lead.
Other things to note
We are close to all bus lines; we have two permits for parking if you have a car; neighborhood is quiet, safe and peaceful.
Please do not park in the driveway and after 10pm please keep noise to a minimum. Thanks!
We are close to all bus lines; neighborhood is quiet, safe and peaceful. Please keep in mind that this is our families home and you will be able to see that -- though it is tidy, there are areas where there are children's toys in baskets, papers on my desk, or our belongings in closets (though we will leave you plenty of hanging space in the closet), etc. Please do not expect our home to look like a hotel. It is a comfortable, clean and lovely home and our guests have been very happy here.
I would expect our guests to treat our home as they would a hotel room and also understand that our personal belongings (though of no value, are still valuable to us) are to be respected. No smoking (even on the porch or front yard), no late loud music, no large gatherings.
I'm a world traveler who finally settled down and had kids! My kids and I enjoy having airbnb guests and it's the second best way to expose them to the many wonderful people we share the planet with while making money instead of spending it on flights! I'm happy to host you and will do everything to make it a pleasant stay for you.
