As you enter the gated courtyard you are greeted with lush plants, the sound of a water fall and fish splashing in the koi pond. Your fully equipped guest room has its own entrance and is private from the house. This is a quiet retreat to unwind in and/or enjoy the many attractions nearby as well as the serene nature of the mountains and the beach.

The bed is a very comfortable queen size with 2 goose down pillows, extra pillows, comforter and freshly ironed high thread count linens.
The bathroom has extra towels, plush robes and is stocked with the basics that you would find in a fine hotel, plus more: hair dryer, shampoo/conditioner, razors, disposable shower caps, plus additional guest toiletries incase you need or have forgotten something (even your toothbrush).
There is access to a washer and dryer in the main house and an iron and table top ironing board in your room.
The private guest house has it's own entrance and was built as a separate addition onto the front of the house. I live behind in the main house and although we share a common wall, the guest house is private and without direct access to the main house. I enjoy meeting my guests and I'm available for any questions you may have.
There is off-street parking on my driveway specifically for you during your stay. You enter through a locked front gate into the courtyard. As you enter the courtyard, your private room is through the french doors immediately to the right. The sheltered courtyard patio is outside your front door equipped with a couple of chairs and ottomans for conversation or relaxation. Feed the fish, sit outside in the morning with a cup of coffee, afternoon with a book or in the evening with a glass of wine. Specifically for you, this is your outdoor space to enjoy while here.
Interaction with guests
I like to do a meet and greet upon your arrival. Your comfort and privacy is a top priority to me, so I will be readily available if something is needed during your stay. I work from home and if I am out, I'm always reachable by phone or text.

I am a native of Los Angeles and have lived in this home for most of my life. I enjoy meeting new people, and love being an Airbnb host. We used Airbnb when my family travelled to Europe and really enjoyed it. We wanted to immerse ourselves more directly into the culture of each country we visited and found this to be a very fun, different and educational way to travel! I have two young adult sons. One now lives out of state and the other is a student and living at USC in downtown L.A.
I "stayed" in my guest house in order to determine what, if anything, would be needed. I have been fortunate to have stayed in luxury hotels and I appreciate the extra little details, and so I have thoughtfully accommodated the room with many extras. Basically, all of the things that I would appreciate having if I was staying somewhere!
