About This Listing
Convenient and comfortable room near LAX. The room has a queen sized bed and it shares a bathroom. Easy parking and close to trains and buses. I try to treat my guests like friends staying over for the night.
I have an extra bedroom with a queen-sized bed. It sleeps two. There is one shared bathroom in the house. The kitchen, my pots and pans, and my dishes are available for those who want to cook. I have clean blankets and towels available. Parking on the street is available in the neighborhood.
I live by myself in the two bedroom house. I do not have pets and I do not smoke.
Guests have access to the whole house except for my bedroom. Feel free to make yourself at home.
Interaction with Guests
I like to treat my guests like friends staying over for the night. I like to help answer questions or show the best route to places on the map. Feel free to ask me anything about the city.
I work during the week, but I am willing to show people around after work. I like to go to sleep before midnight on weekdays, but I stay up later on weekends.
I enjoy hearing about my guest's travels. The main reason I rent my room is to meet interesting people and have really enjoyed the experience.
I live in the City of Hawthorne. My house is 15 minutes from Manhattan Beach and LAX. It is a few blocks from the 405 and 105 Freeways which gives easy access to the rest of the city. I live in a quiet, family neighborhood, but it is a short drive/cab ride to the beach cities such as Manhattan and Hermosa Beach.
The beach is the highlight in the area. Manhattan Beach is around 5 miles west of my house.
The Green Line light rail is 2 miles from my house which provides access to downtown in about 50 minutes.
The Gardena 5 bus runs along El Segundo Blvd a few blocks from my house and goes to Aviation Station which has a shuttle to the Airport. It runs every half hour on weekdays.
I recommend guests rent a car to get to sights quicker or consider using Uber/Lyft.

I'm not very strict, but I'd like people to respect my house and things.
Very nice and confortable room, near LAX airport! A lot of space for parking near the hose, and a very quiet neighbourhood.
Jason made us feel at home, we had the key of the apartment and we could use every part of the house without problems.
Just what I needed before my step 2 CS exam. It's only 10 min away from the testing site. Jason is the perfect host too.
Jason's place was very convenient for us. We just stayed for a night, as we had a flight in the morning at LAX and needed a place to stay close to the airport. We made the reservation on very short notice (the evening before) and it was no problem for Jason. Arrival was very easy, even if Jason wasn't there when we arrived, communication was very good, there was enough street parking, the bed was super comfortable, and the house was only 15 minutes to the airport (by car), which was really great. Jason was very kind. We really felt welcome and at home.
Jason's place was absolutely perfect for what I was looking for! Clean, comfortable (the bed was amazing!!), convenient and quiet. I didn't get to see Jason much, as I was up early and home late. Definitely book with Jason! I would do it again.
Jason was an excellent host. He communicated very well prior to my arrival which was important in my case as I arrived during the day when he was at work. He is set to have secure delivery of the keys in cases like mine. Jason's home is very clean and just as described on the site. I must say the bed is one of the most comfortable beds I have slept on in ages! Also, as described Jason has very speedy access and I even streamed the video news from my Verizon FIOS account on the opposite coast. Lastly, the location and neighborhood of Jason's place is great and especially so in my case. I had meetings at 4 of the aerospace firms in the area which were no more than 1-3 miles from his house. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to the area!
About the Host, Jason
I really enjoy hosting people. I like to get to know my guests, and am willing to give them a local's prospective on things or show them around myself if I have time. I took a trip to South America in January 2013 and really loved the Inca Trail and Colombia. I went to Ireland and the UK in July 2013 and had a great time visiting with friends I met while traveling. Fall 2013 I took quick trips to South Korea and Bahrain. I went to Puerto Rico in February and really enjoyed my most recent trip to Denmark, the Netherlands, England, Morocco, and Spain.
Some of my interests:
Baseball is one of my loves. I helped to start and lead an adult league, and I'm an umpire at the local Little League.
I love the LA Clippers basketball team and go to all the games.
I'm very active in my community. I lead my home owner's association and attend a lot of community meetings.
I do a lot of road cycling and am trying to get more involved in hiking and backpacking.
I'm a member of LACMA and MOCA and enjoy the Getty.
I'm a big fan of good food, especially hole in the wall places. And I love good beer.
