About This Listing
LARGE private with french doors opening to a private patio. Make yourself at home and to anything in the kitchen. Close to Hollywood attractions, street parking, quiet, your own keys, AND... a cool host who is also an LA Native!
Your private room is HUGE! You will have your own set of keys to come and go as you please.
You will have the large bedroom that opens to the patio. It has a double bed. I will be in the other room on a futon bed. There are hardwood floors and red tile (no carpet), a good stereo system with a Bluetooth so you can listen to your music, TV / Netflix movies, WiFi / computer if you need and a cute little kitchen.
I love to cook so glad to make you something to eat when the timing is good.
You will have your own set of keys. Come and go as you please, make yourself at home.
Interaction with Guests
I use to own a tour business and love to entertain. This is really great for me to meet new people from around the world and also welcome you to my home and show you some if Hollywood if you are interested and the timing is good! I have a lot of great friends that would be glad to share time with you I'm sure. I work a lot at the law firm so not always around. I really enjoy spending as much time with my guests and making new friends.
Airbnb took me out to a nice dinner with 6 others as a thank you for being one of the top hosts in my area so that was super nice! I live pretty close to the Hollywood attractions. It's safe and amazingly quiet for being in the city because it's not on a major street.
Public transportation right up the street. If you have a car, street parking is available and convenient. I ride a Harley Davidison so if the timing is good and you want to go for a ride or cruise in my classic car, I will be glad to take you for a spin!
Other Things to Note
I have a cat named Ole! Some people are alergic to cats, however, I have had many friends with allergies over and they never had a problem because my home is light and airy, no carpet and Ole is quiet and she has her own little bed. Right now she is shaved like a lioness and looks so cute.
I'm a pretty relaxed and easy going guy. I work in a law firm as a paralegal and usually go to bed around 11 and leave at 8 but if you want to stay up, that's fine with me. I love to cook and eat pretty healthy so maybe we can have BLD? I also love using my NutriBullet to make healthy smoothies if you want to try one. Please help yourself to anything in the kitchen, anytime but there is also a store right up the street for groceries.
I don't really drink but have as much as you like, heck you're on vacation. You can smoke on the private patio if you like. There are also weights and I have P90x workout CDs if you want to exercise together :)
I usually have a container of Purell by the door, but we already know it's a good practice to wash our hands often : )
Aaron is a very good host. The breakfast is nice. The location is good.
Aaron is a great host and presented Hollywood as its best! I loved staying at his fabolous decorated flat and enjoyed as well the company of chatty Olé. Aaron looked after me as a friend and it was extremely entertaining with him. Definitively a great place to stay in Hollywood.
I really like Aaren and the sweet vintage house！He is so friendly and helpful.We have a wonderful time in the house.He leads a very healthy life.He even made us a super-healthy honeymoon
breakfast！That's such a good memory.Highly recommended！
Aaron's place is amazing. It looks exactly the same comparing with his pictures. It is so pretty with all those vintage furniture. Also, the location is awesome, it is really near Hollywood and one of the most busy shopping and sightseeing street. Aaron is an amazing host, the protein breakfast he made us is so good, and he also knows a lot stories about celebrities in Hollywood. We had a good time chatting with him.
Aaron was so friendly. Prior to our visit he gave easy-to-follow instructions on how to enter the property. Due to our busy schedule we could not socialise with Aaron as much as we would have liked which is a shame as he is such a nice guy. Ole, the cat, is a delight.
The apartment is on the ground floor and in a quiet area. LA is spread out and public transport not as developed as in other cities but cabs are plentiful and there were no problems getting around with them. The room was large but would have benefited from a lock, being cleaner and somewhere to unpack such as drawers and hanging space that aren't already being used. Be mindful that the shared bathroom has two doors - one into the bedroom and one into the hallway - but fortunately everything worked out and we didn't walk in on each other. We did not use the kitchen, but Aaron generously said we could, so that is handy for those travellers who like to have breakfast at home. WiFi was super fast.
It was the first time an AirBnB host asked us to make the bed on leaving. This was a bit cheeky as we had paid a cleaning fee and did raise concerns that some guests may not have the high standards a AirBnB host usually does which would impact the cleanliness.
About the Host, Aaron
I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I am 48 years old, graduated UCLA and I work in a law firm and live by myself in an apartment and antique furniture is the style. It's quiet, clean and spacious. I'm pretty honored to be noted as a "Superhost" on airbnb and I think it's because I enjoy good company.
I use to be a publicist for old time movie stars and I have done some acting so would be glad to share with you. I use to own a tour business hosted in a classic limousine and it was on a lot of TV, so I know the city very well. I love meeting people from other places and I would love to show you my city.
I have a a classic car, it's a 1958 Metropolitan, Nash. It's really cute and people will literally stop on the street and wave when driving in this car, it's so funny. I also ride a Harley Davidson, so if you have a sense of adventure, it's a lot of fun to get around on a cool chopper if our timing is good! I have a cat named Ole and she is pretty quiet and sweet. There is no carpet in the apartment (tile and hardwood floor). You will have your own private room. It is very close to public transportation and the heart and soul of Hollywood. I'm gay and have a diverse range of friends, a lot in the entertainment industry.
I'm gay, just thought I would toss that out there if that even matters. My friends and family may describe me as a friendly guy, sometimes funny and a great host. I work full time in a law firm and I enjoy exercising, hiking, watching movies, roller skating on the beach and photography.
