Interaction with Guests
You will have complete privacy - however, if there's anything you need I'll be available to help - or give suggestions for a great time in LA
Historic neighborhood of Los Angeles, home to many celebrities from the early days of cinema. Close to everything, yet quiet, residential, and calm with large trees along the street.
Free parking included - either in the driveway near the guesthouse or on the street in front, whichever you prefer.
Public transportation options: Public transportation in Los Angeles is slow and unreliable so I always highly recommend that guests rent a car during their stay if possible. However, we have a new Expo line and you can easily take the bus at the corner (two stops) to the Expo line that runs between Union Station and the beach. Please note that buses are often overcrowded. Although the bus stop is 1 block away from the guesthouse, I would recommend taking Uber or taxis at night if you don't have a rental car. L.A. is so big and it's not "public transport friendly" like other big cities!
Other Things to Note
Los Angeles has a drought so please conserve water - turn off all appliances whenever you leave for the day. If there is anything you need during your stay, please let me know!

Poet, ex-attorney and mom..now that my kids are grown I'm happy to welcome visitors from everywhere! I have lived in France and traveled in Western and Eastern Europe - also spending a lot of time in Latin America. I love cooking and music and have been known to salsa dance from time to time. Los Angeles has so much to offer..special places for food, music, art and film that it will be my pleasure to share with guests.
