Private bedroom with private bath, front deck with view into the hills and quiet and completely private back yard, full kitchen for breakfast and lunch and in agreement for cooking dinner(s), washer/dryer.

Interaction with guests

I am very flexible and adaptable when it comes to interaction with guests. Some guest only need a safe and comfortable room and besides a quick good morning and hello I don't see much of them. Others may have a little more time or actually prefer a little bit more interaction and I enjoy that too. I understand both needs and just want my guests to have a wonderful time and to get the most out of their stay with me, wether that is a look into living as a local or getting accomplished what they came to do. I adapt to my guests needs as I sense what they would prefer.

Other things to note

Unlike some listings that give the same impression, guests who stay with me are the ONLY guests, so there are no surprises of having to share the common spaces or driveway with other people, or being woken up by people coming home at 5 am. I am only mentioning this because of inquiries made with me and experiences from guests with other listings. This listing is my only one, I don't run several places.

Sabine was very welcoming! It is a lovely house - we especially enjoyed the sunny backyard. We also appreciated her advices on things to do and where to eat.

Our stay in LA was so amazing and it all started with staying at Sabine's. The house and room are clean, cool, and comfortable. She provides everything you could need and it feels more like staying with a friend than a hotel. The location is also perfect for any hiking, exploring, or going out at night. Highly recommend booking!

It doesn't get better on airbnb. Seriously, if its available, book it. Sabine is truly an amazing person, and made us feel like we went to a friends house instead of a stragers house. She went above and beyond what anyone would expect. The location is great. There is a cafe down the street with great food and coffee, and you are extremely close to the Hollywood sign which was cool to see when we walked to the cafe every morning. Uber or lyft makes everything a Breese and because of the location it's cheap to travel around. The view from her front deck is awsome and it's quiet location is great for relaxing. You will not be disappointed with choosing Sabine's house.

Sabine was an awesome host. She was genuinely kind, warm, and even went out of her way to help make my trip as enjoyable as possible. She is also really fun to chat with and down-to-earth. It's clear that she has made many good friends with her former air bnb visitors. The room very much lives up to its name "sanctuary" - it was cozy, immaculately clean, and incredibly restful. My highest recommendation.

I had an amazing time staying at Sabine's home. It is easily the best stay I have had out of all my Airbnb stays. Her home is beautiful. The room has everything needed, and then some. Sabine is super friendly, and great to converse with. I really enjoyed getting to know her. She was available to help me to my room upon my late arrival. I was comfortable the entire time. I cannot say enough good things about my stay. I would love to stay with Sabine again, and highly recommend her place to anyone.

I'm an interior designer from the Netherlands living both in Amsterdam and Los Angeles.
Contemporary Design is my passion and my house is proof. I completely remodeled a "face less" house from the sixties -but in the perfect location!- into a designer home with all the amenities we want today.
Besides design and languages, I love to travel, hiking and being outdoors, outdoor activities, ride my motorcycle, animals, sustainable design and living, organic food, gardens and everything beautiful. In the past that included working in the music industry. Now I just enjoy listening to different kinds of music. I will gladly share my music collection with you, from classical to metal, world to techno, though you might have to update me on all of them!
I will make your stay comfortable and help you with any questions you have regarding your visit to Los Angeles. As a foreigner myself, I understand the cultural differences and the frustrations they sometimes cause. I can explain how things work here.
For many years I've purchased books on the region which I will gladly share with my guests.
Activities I love to do are: hiking, meeting friends for food or coffee/tea, reading, music, yoga, horseback riding, skiing, snowboarding and would love to sail again. I recently started learning to play bass guitar and I will probably stay a beginner forever but I enjoy it nonetheless. Same story for my Argentine tango efforts. ;)
My favorite city is Paris (based on where I've been), though Amsterdam is not bad either and is my home.
