About this listing
Minutes away from LAX! Beautiful Home in gated Community, walking distance to the Forum. Ideal for concerts. Close to attractions & beaches, Venice, Southbay and Shopping! Great for all travelers.
Our pretty and relaxing guest room comfortably accommodate 2 guests, the room has a Queen Bed, walk-in closet for all your stuff, free wifi, and Flat Screen TV with full DirecTV access, the Jack'n'Jill bathroom is shared with another bedroom that is occupied by our female friend.
Check-in MUST be NO later than 8 pm, unless we agree on a later arrival with you beforehand, or you have a late flight arrival! Once we agree on an arrival time and you are late, please let us know so we can adjust our schedule.
We're very easy going and have a dog on the premises so you must be dog friendly.
Our house is a modern Spanish Style Home built in 2005, with over 2000 sqft there is plenty of space. All bedrooms are upstairs, which provides plenty of privacy, while the living/dining and kitchen area is downstairs and open concept, providing lots of room to hang out in front of the fireplace or watch TV, cook a meal or just have breakfast/coffee sitting around the large kitchen island. The kitchen is fully stocked and if you're hungry feel free to open the fridge and help yourself to whatever you like, all we ask is that you replace it or at least let us know when you use the last of the milk and that you leave the area as you found it.
Washer and dryer are available for your convenience (contributions appreciated).
In the summer, you'll be able to use the community pool/spa and tennis courts.
Interaction with guests
We will let you be if you like or you can hang out with us, that's completely up to you. You're more than welcome to join for dinner if I'm cooking or to tag along when we go out somewhere, we love showing you around and give you tips on where to eat, shop, people watch. I gladly help organize tours, car rentals or shopping trips etc.
We live in a secure gated community in walking distance of the Forum and only minutes from LAX. It's a beautiful oasis within the city. All freeways are close, and it takes almost no time to go up into Hollywood, to Downtown, into Santa Monica or Venice or to the South B
ay (Manhattan Beach, Hermosa and Redondo Beach). The location is ideal to explore all areas of LA and if you just come into town for a concert at the Forum, you'll be able to walk to and from the venue. As we are so close to the airport the room is ideal for Airline Personnel on a layover, a busy business professional on a business trip or as a first stop for overseas travelers after a long flight!
Here are the current concert dates for The Forum:
We will update as more Acts are added!
You'll need a car or scooter to get around. Parking is included and the Guard will issue you a parking pass for the time of your stay. It is only a short cab ride to the Airport and Rental Car Offices.
Other things to note
Please note that we have a dog on the premises, he is a friendly and will make friends with you after you have been properly introduced, just let him adapt to you and give him time to get to know you. As every dog, he will bark from time to time.
If you are traveling with pets, our pup is good with other dogs (males need to be neutered) but NO cats please!
Please don't smoke inside the home, you're welcome to smoke on the back or front patio. Clean up after yourself if you use the kitchen please! Oh take your shoes upstairs in your room with you, otherwise they might end up as toys as the pup loves shoes!
If you are eating in your rooms, please be kind enough to bring down food waste and dispose of it in the trash can in the kitchen.
Please NO arrivals after 9pm, unless previously agreed upon. Once we agree on a check-in time, please try to stick to it, if you have an emergency or you are delayed through no fault of your own, please let us know immediately.
Check out is at 11 am, we might be able to let you have a late check out if there isn't a booking the same day or if I am not working.
Please no uninvited guests, if you like to bring over a friend let us know in advance.
We are a fun Family of 3, living in a great gated community about 4 miles from LAX. Hiking with our Doberman, eating out, the beach, the gym and horseback riding are just a few of our hobbies. We love to find new spots to eat and share them with friends, family and guests.
The atmosphere in our house is casual and laid back, we're low stress people and love to get to know other cultures, people and places. Patrick grew up on the East Coast and moved to California in 1997, to enjoy life and work in the Communications Industry. Katja is originally from Switzerland and came to Los Angeles in '99 via Germany/Austria and the UK. We'll be able to communicate in German, a little French and English of course.
To stay with us, you MUST love big dogs and not be afraid of them. Our big boy is the child of the house, he's very friendly, but needs a few minutes to warm up.
