About this listing
In a wonderful 1920's historic Spanish style house, a large airy private guest room with a queen size bed, completely furnished with Mission furniture, includes fresh linens, WIFI cable, and utilities, and walk in closet. Sometimes share bathroom, depending on who is in the house, sometimes have the bathroom all to yourself. Share kitchen, washer/dryer on site, large front and back yards with mature trees and rose gardens where the humming birds visit twice a day! dance/workout/ pilates studio in back yard. The entire home is beautifully furnished with antiques, hi ceilings, and hardwood floors. There is also outdoor dining if you so wish.
There is plenty of on street parking in a quiet residential tree-lined street; Centrally located in mid city LA, minutes to charming Larchmont Village where many varied international restaurants abound also the famous Larchmont Village Pizza Parlor; it's a monster hit! Best pizza in town. Drive or bus east a few minutes along Olympic Blvd ( it is not necessary to take the 10 east Freeway known as the Santa Monica Freeway) and you will be at the Nokia Theater the the LA Sports Arena. Drive west a few minutes and you are at the Grove (Fairfax and Third) LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art). Hollywood is a few minutes north along Vine Street, just three blocks west of my street. Beverly Hills is further west from Fairfax, along Wilshire or Olympic Blvds, Traveling still further west, you reach UCLA and then Santa Monica and the beach with famous Venice Muscle Beach. These locations are all extremely convenient from my house. LAX is only 20 minutes from my house along La Cienega Blvd and Century Blvds. Confused! Oh Well! Probably how I wrote about it. It's all OK. It is all so close and that is a plus because traffic here can be a challenge!
Walk one anda half blocks to the bus on Wilshire and Olympic ; UCLA is 7.6 miles along Wilshire Blvd (takes 21 minutes with no traffic. USC is 5.6 miles away and 12 minutes if there is light traffic along Olympic Blvd. Again, using public transportation you have easy access to Hollywood, the movie studios Paramount, Universal, Twentieth Century Fox, and Warner Bros.the Grove, Beverly Hills, Beverly Center ( a very recently renovated mall) Santa Monica and the Calif. beaches. Using a car, one has access to both the 10, Santa Monica Freeway and the 101, the Hollywood Freeway.
We have friendly cocker spaniel dogs which are all rescues from the Los Angeles Animal Shelters.
The neighborhood is very quiet, perfect for relaxation and study. We have hosted writers, law and medical students,actors and musicians. There is ample street parking on the tree lined street should you need it..
We look forward to making your stay in LA as comfortable and convenient and friendly as possible.
Their Room, communal kitchen, bathroom and washer/dryer once a week, if staying longer than 4/5 days
Interaction with Guests
Meet and greet when they arrive; show guests where they will sleep, show them how to lock front door and their bedroom door, kitchen, bathroom, washer/dryer facility. I am then usually working.
Plenty of on street parking as the area is really only for single families, usually a couple and up to two children. So very quiet, and spacious.
Convenient to DTLA and Korea Town, the Grove, the LACMA Museum.Hollywood and Larchmont Blvd.
We are located midway between Wilshire and Olympic Blvds so really close to public transportation by bus. Walk from Wilshire to Western to catch the Metro, also. Uber, taxi services, car rentals abound. Enterprise is the best, because they will pick you up and when you return your car, they will take you back to wherever you were.
Other Things to Note

Lock and secure front door with chain 1.30pm Last person in the house, at night, please put the security chain on the front door after locking it.
Also as there is a water shortage in Los Angeles at the present time, Los Angelenos have water restrictions, so please take showers of reasonable length. Coming from Australia, where there are frequent droughts, I learnt very early on, how precious water is.
