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). There is free wi-fi in the house or you are welcome to use the Mac in the Blue Room to surf the net and send out emails. Please now downloads.
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 Southbay (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!

Great location, 15 mins away from LAX and access to major freeways are very convenient. Even though we only stayed one night but Katja was very gracious to us. Highly recommended.
My experience at Katja & Patrick's was incredibly great! They were (Poa included) very kind and friendly always trying to make me feel at home.
The house is clean and the room, with its own private bathroom and a super comfortable mattress, makes my stay very pleasant.
Definitely, I'll come back on my next trip to LA!
Nice to meet you guys :)
This was by far the best place to be, both Patrick and Katja are very great hosts and really awesome people. Me and my Spouse loved the experience. Located in the heart of a beautiful gated community, the location was perfect. Whenever I'm in LA I will be looking forward to Staying with them again. I would recommend their home to anyone looking to have a great vacation with awesome hosts. Thanks again Patrick and Katja. I hope to see you all next time We're in town!!!
Staying with Patric and Katja has been a great experience. They have provided all information that a first time traveler to LA. They have a lovely dog. I will surely come back again and strongly recommend their home for your stay should you travel to LA.
Couldn't be better
Very clean, totally changed my idea about airbnb
While we at Katja and Patrick's home for a very short time, they were delightful hosts and we truly enjoyed the accommodations as well as our interactions with them and their sweet dog, Poa. We had an EARLY flight out of LAX, which is only minutes from Katja's place, making our morning extremely easy. We also really appreciated that she got up early with us, made us coffee, and gave it to us in To Go cups -- definitely above and beyond! Our conversations were great and we would definitely recommend this listing to others. Thanks so much, Katja and Patrick!
We absolutely loved staying at Patrick and Katja's place. The place is very well maintained and most importantly we had complete privacy. My parents and my 10-month old baby loved being there and feeling like home. Just one night it was pretty cold as the heater didn't work. We would surely recommend friends and family to stay here at a reasonable price for what is offered.
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.
