We offer a small guest bed and bath in the lovely, quiet Los Angeles suburb of Lakewood. We prefer non-smoking guests who will be out and about most of the day as this is NOT an 'apartment' but a bed and bath for 'travelers'. Private bedroom for 2 and adjacent private bath in gay male couple's home. If there will be an additional guest staying with you, please let us know the full name of your guest & where the guest is from.

The space
The space is small and more suited for guests who want a space in which to relax, shower and enjoy a good night's sleep after a day of exploring the Los Angeles area. NOT suited for people looking to 'hole up' 24/7 and who plan to have 3 meals a day in the room as the room does not have a proper 'kitchen'.

The queen bed is HIGH...from floor to top of mattress is approximately 34". We provide 2, small step stools in the room for anyone who might need a little help getting into the bed. But please make note that if you have a handicap that will make getting into a bed this high difficult, you may need to make other considerations. Apologies for any inconveniences.

We've restricted booking in advance to 3 months maximum. If you'd like to book further out, please send us a request and if our schedule permits, we might be able to make exceptions for you. We do this because we also travel and have family and friends visit during the year and we need to be able to plan well ahead. So let us know if you have specific dates you'd like to book more than 3 months ahead. We might be able to accommodate your requests.

We recently (2-2019) installed a single hand rail at the steps in front of our house. There are 3 stairs up to get to the front door. There are no other stairs once inside the house.

Guest access
Access is only to Guest Bedroom & Guest Bathroom. Other sections of our home are private spaces for us. Thank you for respecting our private spaces.

CAMERAS: Please note...for our & our guests' protection, we have 3 security cameras recording movement...1 recording camera outside capturing street/sidewalk images, 1 camera on porch at front door entry & 1 camera in living room recording front door entry inside our home. NONE of these cameras capture ANY activity/images of guests inside their private spaces which are their private bedroom & their private bath.

Also, please note: After many successful years of Airbnb hosting, we've learned to 'tweak' a lot of things to make them work best for us & our guests. One thing we decided on was to NOT hold luggage/bags for guests before check in/after check out. Many reasons but for the most part, the same reasons airlines don't do it. So please make arrangements for your luggage/bags outside of your stay with us. Apologies for the inconveniences this may cause you. But we thought it best to help you plan ahead.

We prefer non-smoking guests. There is NO SMOKING anywhere in the house & NO SMOKING anywhere ON the property. If you have to smoke, you must do it inside your car OR walk down the block away from the house. And please don't smoke or vape in front of people's house...especially our neighbor's. People who smoke come back inside the space and create odors that take days to clear before we receive other guests.

Lastly, we often get requests for 'laundry room access'. Again, we've decided to keep this part of our home 'private' & for our use only. So if you need to do laundry, there are several laundromats nearby...one is within walking distance (1/2 mile?). Just letting our guests know so they can plan well ahead. And again, apologies for any inconveniences this may cause our guests. We travel so we understand these 'needs'. But the spaces are small...this is NOT an 'apartment' & can't accommodate any laundry facilities. Cheers & thank you for understanding.

Other things to note
If you wish to book the suite, please make sure that before you inquire, you have all of the "airbnb verifications" and a clear, FACE PHOTO of you on file. And please let us know the nature of your visit with us. If there will be an additional guest, please let us know the full name of your guest and where the guest is from & when possible, please invite your guest to create a profile with verifications on Airbnb. NOTE: We cannot accept bookings from airbnb guests on behalf of someone who is NOT verified with airbnb. If you are booking for someone else, you must book them as a, "business trip" & click that you are the "booker" and enter all the information for the guest that is required of airbnb.

Below is the policy of Airbnb regarding 'booking for someone else'. Please review:

Can I book on behalf of a friend or family member?
Transparency and trust are vital to the Airbnb experience. People rely on information in Airbnb profiles, reviews, and other verifications when deciding whether to host or stay with someone.

We require Airbnb reservations booked for personal travel to be booked by the person who's going to stay at the listing.

For business trips, Airbnb allows designated bookers at companies enrolled in Airbnb for Work to book trips on behalf of others. If you book travel for your company, find out more about booking for your team.
