About this listing
The room is large and bright. The neighborhood is diverse; culturally and economically mixed. This is urban L.A., not the suburbs or Beverly Hills. However this community is made up of wonderful, caring families. Our house is big and comfy.
Lovely craftsman family home in heart of urban Los Angeles. Close to museums and 20-30 minutes to beach. 10 minutes to USC. 15-30 minutes to Hollywood. Near bus/train and all major freeways. Easy to get anywhere from our home. Front porch good for morning coffee and newspaper or dinner and a glass of wine. A very diverse and urban neighborhood (rich, poor, black, white and everything else). The house is in the middle of the city but we have a back yard which hosts fruit trees, grapes and a rock garden.
Best to have a car, though you can get everywhere by bus and train from our house (though it might take a bit longer and it's better to take Uber if you are coming home late).
Large, bright, clean and inviting room with TV/DVD/internet access. Comfortable for sleeping. 2 bathrooms in the house. Full access to kitchen and laundry room. Access to both porches for reading and R & R, or just hanging out and chatting. Suitable for elders, kids, singles, couples--- no babies or toddlers, though.
As a benefit to actors: I have extensive knowledge of the film industry in Los Angeles and have access to coaches, producers, casting directors.
Guest room, kitchen, laundry room and porches.
Interaction with guests
West Adams: The neighborhood is diverse. This means we have doctors, dancers, actors, gardeners, housekeepers, lawyers, teachers, film people on the block, as well as some scattered homeless people. It's a microcosm of Los Angeles, all nationalities. Lots of delicious ethnic restaurants.
A car is preferable. However, we are near all buses and trains. At night, though, one should take Uber or a taxi if it's late.
Other things to note
We have a dog and a guest dog (who comes over 5 mornings a week). Both are extremely friendly, and mostly stay outside. We also inherited some cats who stay outdoors but one oftentimes sneaks inside. So those with pet allergies should note that.
Just enjoy our lovely, warm house, respect our belongings, and please feel free to peruse our fabulous book collection.
Smoking ONLY outside on porches. Generally, we keep music/TV/voices on a low volume after 9 PM.
We are a healthy living family. NOTE: We don't have a microwave, only an oven and a toaster oven.
