****On August 1, 2016 Airbnb started collecting all hotel taxes due to the City of Los Angeles on behalf of hosts in my city. This agreement is for three the following statement does not apply at this time:

****This business is licensed by the City of Los Angeles, a 14% Los Angeles Hotel Tax (TOT) applicable on all stays of 29 days or less. I collect the tax when you arrive, this is because Airbnb does not collect taxes because each city has a different rate, making it complicated, doing it this way we also avoid transaction fees through Airbnb. This is in accordance with their policy on taxes.

***If you are a family or a small group of friends who want to stay together, I have an additional rooms and sofas for rent with a SHARED bathroom through this website. Just mention it in your inquiry.

Children under 12 are welcome but this is a target rich environment for smaller children who will need continuous supervision so that nothing is broken because nothing is childproofed here. And, all children are considered guests and must be included in your reservation request for insurance purposes.

Laundry facilities are available on site for a $1.00 per load per product, so if you use detergent and fabric softener it will be $2.00. I have a ton of products for stains and so forth right by the machine.

Please arrive before 11 pm on your day of registration and keep me informed or give me the tools to be informed of your arrival status should weather or an unforeseen something effect it.

This is not exactly a child friendly environment. I have so many pretty, breakable things out and accessible that small people will find irresistible that you may not be able to relax, but if you are able to keep a close eye on your child(ren) then everything should be okay.

No cooking just microwave heating, toasting in the toaster, boiling water, and assembling, light use of refrigerator is acceptable too.

No food should be stored in your room and eating should be done at the dining tables in the house
No candles or incense are to be burned in your room, ever.

*** Please be mindful as you are visiting our Golden State that we are in a crisis drought, our reservoirs are 83% below normal and we have not had rain of any consequence in FIVE years. Please help us all get through what we hope is not a permanent situation and keep water flowing to our taps while we wait for the rain to return. To this end please keep your showers short (ten minutes or less), turn off the water as you are brushing your teeth, and fill the sink when you shave to save water. I thank you and I know Southern California thanks you.

It was a lovely experience to stay at Suzan's place! The house is located at a quiet and convenient neighbourhood, i love the colourful walls in different rooms with a lot of lifetime staffs and for that you should obey the rules to help Suzan to maintain them. I'm a bit afraid at first because there are two dogs in her house but they are lovely, no need to be worried. It was a pity that we didn't have time to relax in her garden, but i will come back SOON. :)

Suzan's house is located at a convenient and quiet neighborhood. You can almost reach any scenic spots within 10 minutes drive. And it is also close to groceries. Suzan's house is well decorated and it's really lovely. And you should obey some rules to help her maintain the house. Anyway, it is quite a good experience to stay at Suzan's house.

Thank you for your feedback, yours is the first time I have had an issue with tidiness I will take a look at that for sure because it is something that is very important to me. As for the private bathroom, it is clearly called out in my listing that it is shared, so I am sorry if there was a misunderstanding on your part. Thanks again for staying at my place. Regards, Suzan

I am an outgoing, creative person who is also a great hostess. I love meeting new people and find that to be the best part of being an AirBnB host.

I wrote the above introduction six years ago when I started hosting and it is still true today, I enjoy hosting immensely. But, what I did not know then, is that being a host is a life enriching experience because of all the great people who have come into my life since I took that early leap into the shared economy. I have learned a lot about my city that I share with my guests and I have made many wonderful friends. Maybe you will be the next one!
