The Space

You'll feel at home in your queen size bed with clean Egyptian cotton sheets, fresh towels, hair dryer, soap, iron... just bring your tooth brush (if you forget, I can provide that too!). Beyond the guest bedroom is the office with a daybed and comfy inflatable bed for larger groups. And finally, the master bedroom if needed for groups of 5 or more. I keep a clean and organized house and everyone has their own space.

Guest Access

You're renting a room but have access to entire house... laundry facilities, gourmet kitchen, wifi, garage parking, 5 bicycles, cable TV. I travel 12 days a month for work, therefore you sometimes will have the house to yourself (important: message me before booking to check my availability).

Note: For the security of all occupants, a security camera is located in living room.

Interaction with Guests

Since LA is the entertainment capital of the world... you are the star of your stay. I'm simply the supporting cast. You need help finding the best restaurants or the hidden jewels that no tourist know about? I can guide you in the right direction. Want to join me for tango, yoga, swimming, biking... you're welcome to tag along. You have your visit all planned out? I'll be invisible and you'll be on your own. It's all about you.

The Neighborhood

My house is located on a safe and quiet tree lined street with a neighborhood feel yet with easy access to active commercial streets. You are not a slave to your car, everything is within walking or biking distance. Go for a walk on the beach or down trendy Montana Ave and explore unique boutiques, enjoy a cup of tea at an outdoor coffee shop and watch the paparazzis chase the celebrity du jour. You won't want to leave.

Getting Around

Bus stops are located nearby. Bus number 3 will take you to/from LA airport for $1. Buses also are available to downtown LA, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Venice...
You can use my bikes or easily walk to nearby restaurants, grocery store, coffee shops...

Other Things to Note

This is important, I ask that no meat product be eaten, brought or cooked in the house. I've been a vegetarian for over 25 years and desire to keep meat out of my house. What is meat? It seems to be a blurry concept to some. Meat is any animal product to include beef, pork, poultry, seafood, shellfish or animal organ. Dairy products such as eggs, milk, cheese... are acceptable and can be brought. Some guests have come and criticized my decision and tried to sneak meat into the house, they've labeled my lifestyle "unnatural", "dangerous", "anti-christian"... I'm making a big point of mentioning this aspect so you know what to expect and no one is surprised or disappointed.
I average 25 requests per day, please message me before making reservations. I travel for a living and want to make sure I'm available to greet you. If I agree to rent please make reservations as soon as possible, someone else might beat you to it. I give priority to people who have profiles, thanks.
To confirm you've read and agree to my rules, please include the word "vegok" in your request.

House Rules

IMPORTANT: Contact me before booking a room, I need to check my schedule.

- No meat cooked, eaten or brought into the house (all meats includes beef, pork, seafood, shellfish, fowl) dairy is ok.

- No illegal drugs

- No smoking (if you are a smoker and need to step outside for a smoke every few hours, we may not get along). The city of Santa Monica does not allow smoking on balconies or patios or within 20 feet of a residence.

-I'm flexible on check-in time but if your check-in is after midnight, please advise in your communication when requesting availability.

-To confirm you agree with these rules, include "vegok" in your written request.

I most probably will decline your request if: -- you book the room without first messaging me
-- you haven't created a profile on Airbnb
--you didn't include "vegok" in your message
