I have an empty room in my apartment that has its own bathroom and walk-in closet. Garage parking and non-restrictive parking across the street (good for company). Right next to the 5 and Bob Hope airport.
This is just a stock image of a carpeted empty room, but the doors and window placement makes it a pretty damn accurate likeness to the real thing.
I have a room available at my apartment in Burbank. The space for rent has its own bathroom and walk-in closet. Between the room for rent and my own, there's a kitchen and living room that we would share. There's a small balcony, and the complex is pet friendly (although I don't have any pets). Gated garage with a space for you and for me. Non-restrictive parking across the street in case you want to have a guest over.

Interaction with Guests
I like to give people their space while remaining approachable and personable. My work schedule is very flexible; I work background a couple of times a week and I record audio-books from my room, so I'm sure to be a presence at the apartment and available if you need help with anything during your stay. I'm not a big party-person but occasionally like to have friends over for dinner and game nights, in case that gives you an idea.
All within a few miles of my place, there's the North Hollywood Arts district, a row of thrift stores for exploring, and some fun dive bars. I'm right next to the Bob Hope Airport, which is probably ideal for anyone flying out here to set up a temporary HQ while you get a feel for LA. Additionally, I'd say my apartment has proven to be a nice middle ground for a lot of studios north and south of here, while Central Casting is just five miles away.
The neighbors are quiet but friendly enough to say Hello. The landlord lives in the building and he regularly goes above and beyond the call of duty for his tenets (one time he gave my girlfriend a ride to the airport when I couldn't do it myself). My place is close to a couple of grocery stores like Ralph's, a number of thrift stores, and a shopping center that has practically everything (Target, Lowe's, Michael's, Macy's, Best Buy, etc.). I also have a running route here where I feel safe day or night.
My apartment is right next to the 5 and Bob Hope Airport, and there's a bustop that you can walk to in about ten minutes.
We have a small balcony, so if you smoke, I would appreciate if you did it there. There's some trickiness about the ventilation where if my roommate was smoking in her room, I could smell it in mine. Thank you :)
Alex and I had a bit of an unusual airbnb arrangement, it was less of a sublet situation and more of a monthly rental situation - meaning, not everything was not supplied for me (i.e. linens, furniture, toilet paper, etc.). This was of course fine for me, as it was clearly outlined at the beginning of my stay. Alex was kind enough to stress the "no furniture" thing!
In terms of the overall experience, it was tricky at first, due to some strangely sensitive doors on the building/apartment. It got frustrating at times, for like the first week, but Alex was always responsive to my aggressive/frantic text message cries for help. He even called me once, to walk me through the process of finagling the key/knob to get in! I thought that was very nice of him. Additionally, he did arrange for someone to come and repair a broken door knob on my bedroom, the day I moved in. Overall, Alex was a very lovely "sublessor," (?) if you will.
The one thing that was extremely disappointing to me was the overall cleanliness of the apartment. The bathroom especially, had appeared to have not been cleaned for a very long time. The night I moved in, I had to bleach the tub and scrub tons of black gunk out of the drain. Now, I'm only bringing this up because the apartment was advertised as "clean" - However, I'm coming to realize that "clean" is a subjective term, so this is no fault to Alex at all. Besides, who knows who is to blame when 4 people share a residence. I think we just weren't on the same page in this regard - as I'm what some might consider a "clean freak!"
Ultimately, this was a good stay. I'm an early bird and the roomies were late night folk, so that was tough for me at times but certainly nothing to complain about, by any means. Alex had forewarned me about that too. Finally, the neighborhood was even nicer than Alex had said it was. My favorite time living there, was walking my pooch around outside!
Conclusion - Alex's place was good for a month and his attentiveness to my problems was really wonderful. He really cared when I was upset about something and always did his very best to rectify the situation immediately! :)
I'm in child-care, I record audio books, and I do some background work once or twice a week. I live in Burbank and I have a room available to rent while I look for a new permanent roommate. The location really makes it an ideal HQ if you're visiting to get a feel for LA and thinking about moving out here for the entertainment industry.
The reviews below written by Melissa and Emily refer to a room that is different from the one I currently have listed. I moved a few miles away from there, I don't have three roommates anymore, and now I live alone in a two bedroom apartment in Burbank. Still, I appreciate what they said about my attentive nature in their reviews and I hope it helps you when considering my listing :)
