About this listing
Enoy this lovely, bright open room with exquisite garden and mountain view overlooking the San Fernando Valley and Warner Center. Perfect patio for outdoor picnics, pool available in summer.

Interaction with Guests
We spend part of the mornings, and sometimes later in the evening as well. We love to talk with our guests. Carolyn is a fascinating person with her life as a Soprano diva. And I have travelled the world and created art in Europe and in the states. My background is in psychology and education as well. So, lively discussions are part of the flavor of staying here.
I love this neighborhood because it is quiet and removed even though we are just blocks from Warner Center and every kind of store or service you need. It is hilly and green, so walks are easy and enjoyable and the neighbors are friendly.
If you do not have a car, you can walk fifteen minutes to the bus on Ventura Blvd. which will take you across the valley or to the Orange Bus hub just minutes away where you can access all of Los Angeles. Many people like to bicycle around the valley. Still, a car is your best bet.
Other Things to Note
You may park on the driveway or up the street.
No pets, except a non shedding dog.

About the Host, Alisa
I am a professional artist and psychotherapist from California. I am a sculptor andI love to carve marble in Italy. I speak Spanish and Italian, and love to travel to Europe, South America, and adventure destinations. I love art, theater, standard poodles, classical music, reading and meeting people from around the world.
I love to dance salsa and even a little tango. Want to join me?
I enjoy international cuisine, especially sushi and authentic Spanish food. I am considered the salad queen for my inventive salads, though I am told I am a very good cook, and let's face it, that is another aspect of this creative life.
I love foreign films the most, though I have to admit that some of my favorite films are still those by Nora Ephron (When Harry Met Sally) and Mel Brooks and Woody Allen. Great Comedy or complex memoires are a must. I will share a few of my favorite jokes with you....joke telling runs in the family for generations.
I love hosting guests from across the globe. Your stay will be fun and enlightening. Sometimes I even demonstrate how I carve in stone, and will give you a personal tour of the art. Often available for good conversation and am always interested in you and what you do.. I will point you in the right direction about what to see in this area.
