About this listing
I have a spare 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.
The available room (top left) has its own bathroom and walk-in closet. The room is lightly furnished with a full-size bed, a table and chair, and the bathroom is stocked with the basics.
The spare room 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 parking 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 friendly and approachable. I'm usually out nannying, I work background a few times a month, and I record audio-books from my room, which sounds busy but it's actually very flexible, so you can reach me 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 building manager lives on the premises; he's polite, prompt, and usually goes above and beyond the call of duty (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, some thrift stores, and the Empire Shopping Center which 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 bus-stop that you can walk to in about ten minutes.
Other Things to Note
I scrub down the guest shower between stays, vacuum, dust, clean the bed sheets, and I keep the kitchen neat. This is just a spare bedroom in my apartment, best suited to those who are looking for a place to crash at a cheaper rate than the hotel down the street.
One time, I got a low Star Rating for "accuracy" which was followed up with a private message criticizing my personal taste... It's basic and utilitarian, and it has all the conveniences you could reasonably expect. Again, this is just a spare bedroom in my apartment.
On your first night, you can expect a tour of the amenities, directions to nearby places of interest, and plenty of personal space. You can ask me for help anytime throughout your stay, and I'll give you the building manager's number in case an emergency comes up while I'm out.
I hope this helps in managing expectations. It's a decent place to crash.
Feel free to use the kitchen to prepare any meals and help yourself to my dishes and cookware, just please tidy up afterwards.
There's an empty cabinet in the kitchen and an empty shelf in the fridge for you to keep food. I won't touch what's yours.
Please make sure all windows are closed before turning on the AC.
I 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 old roommate was smoking in her room, I could smell it in mine. Thank you :)
I'm in child-care, I record audio books, and I do background work a few times each month. I live in Burbank and I have a room available to rent. 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 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 :)
