****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 room and sofas for rent with a SHARED bathroom through this website. Just mention it in your inquiry.

And, all children are considered guests and must be included in your reservation request for insurance purposes.

*** 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.
