About this listing
We are renting the downstairs bedroom in our two bedroom townhouse. The room is spacious with high ceilings, a full size bed (air mattress if needed), closet, private balcony, and private bathroom. You may also use our kitchen. On-site laundry.
You will have a key for the front security gate, as well as for the front door of our home. All that we ask is you lock the deadbolt (top lock) when you leave and come back into our home. There is also a lock on the guest room bedroom door. There is a downstairs bathroom that will be yours alone to use, we do not use this bathroom when we have guests staying with us.
Interaction with guests
We will always be available to our guests through phone, email, or text. We also will be here during your stay in case something comes up, or if you just have any questions. We both work, so our in-person availability will be limited to before/after work hours.
We live in a quiet, safe neighborhood in West Los Angeles. The area consists of single family homes and apartments, and there is a elementary school 1 block up the street from us. There are plenty of grocery, convenience stores, and restaurants within walking distance. Our building also has outside security gates for controlled access. It is possible to rent a bike and ride to Venice Beach or Santa Monica from our place, with bike lanes all the way down to the beach. We have quick access to all of the LA hotspots, without all of the congestion and craziness of some other areas in LA.
There are a few different bus lines/stops within walking distance from our home, as well as a light rail train a couple miles away. We recommend having a car if possible in LA though because the city is very spread out. If you do not have a car during your stay the best option would be to use Uber or Lyft (smartphone taxi apps) to get around. If you have a car there is free parking on our street and all of the surrounding streets (free parking is rare in LA). We are very close to the beach, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, LAX, etc. Just be aware that LA traffic can be pretty bad during rush hour, so plan travel around the city accordingly.
Treat others as you'd like to be treated. Very simple. While we are very flexible, here are some rules:
- Absolutely NO drugs allowed at our apartment.
- If you use the kitchen, please treat it like your own and clean up after yourself.
- No parties are allowed by guests.
- Please let us know if you plan on bringing guests over. All guests need to check in with ID for safety purposes.
- If you come back late, please try to be quiet so we do not get complaints from neighbors.
- You can smoke cigarettes on your private balcony attached to the room, just make sure to close the sliding glass door so smoke does not come in our home. Absolutely NO smoking inside the room.
