A quiet sanctuary in one of the hottest neighborhoods in the country.

The Space

The building is a one block walk to the Sunset Strip, two blocks to the Santa Monica Bl. strip, walking distance to anything in West Hollywood (and even Hollywood and Beverly Hills if you're active). It's a quiet, leafy courtyard building (although there is some street noise during the day and on weekend evenings).

Guest room has:

-a full sized bed, big enough for two
-a closet and a cabinet for clothes.
-a large desk and ergonomic desk chair
-a lounge chair
-Small flat screen TV with Roku and streaming video, including Pandora, Netflix and Amazon Prime. It also has a DVD player can be set up too.
-ironing board and iron
-two extra roll-up twin futons that can be used for a second guest (if you don't want to sleep together).

In the apartment there is:

-One bathroom to share. I usually shower at the gym, fyi.



-The larger TV in the living room has a DVD and roku also.

You are welcome to use the common areas, and the kitchen. Most guests have taken advantage of the many restaurants and cafes in the area.

A laundry room with coin-operated machines is in the building. I can give you detergent.

It is permit parking in this neighborhood. I can give you a guest permit. Just check the parking restrictions on the signs.

The zip code is 90069, which is one of the most walkable areas in the country.

If you are without a car, I recommend Super Shuttle from the airport. It would take about 45 minutes and cost $30. A taxi would be a bit faster, but would cost around $60.

I will leave you to do your own thing. I'm quiet and laid back professional. I work from home often, but will not be in your way and you will have complete privacy in your bedroom. I am happy to give recommendations on things to do in the city.

I do have a friendly dog who will leave you alone (but she likes to be petted). She will stay out of your room - unless you invite her in.

When you request a booking, please let me know a little bit about yourself and your plans. I give priority to people who have filled out a profile.

I can be flexible about check-in and check-out times, depending on the day. Just ask in advance to arrange. Thanks.

Guest Access

Access to the entire apartment, except for my bedroom.

Interaction with Guests

I will answer any questions quickly. If I'm home and awake I'll probably be working quietly-writing. I'm friendly but I respect your privacy, and I will leave you to do your own thing. Please respect my privacy too.

Getting around

There are a few major bus stops about two blocks away. At least one bus line can take you to the subway in Hollywood. I recommend learning the ins and outs of public transportation before you come (I don't use it much). If you drive, its best to be familiar with the streets, generally. Traffic here is everything you've heard, heavy and crazy.

Other Things to Note

I'll provide tea and coffee always, and fresh fruit. For other food, you're on your own. For people who are new to airbnb, please fill out your profile and let me know what your plans are when you're in town, so we can know if we're a good match.

If you are from out of the country, it is helpful if you have a phone with a U.S. number, so we can easily communicate.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Happy with my last minute stay at Larry's place, he was very welcoming and had no issues. Apartment is clean and spacious and in a good location just off West Sunset.

  • My husband stayed with Larry for one week and had an excellent experience! The location was fabulous for getting around West Hollywood without a car. The room was perfect and bed was very comfy. He was able to use the fridge to store food, which was a great money saver. The dog Lucy was a sweetheart and great for my husband who was missing our dog back home. Stay with Larry, you (or your wallet) won't be disappointed.

  • We had a great time staying at Larry's place.
    Larry was an excellent host and we enjoyed the company of his dog Lucy.
    The appartment is located in walking distance to many great bars and cafés.

  • My stay at Larry's apartment was wonderful. Larry (email hidden). His apartment is very nice. He has a lovely dog, Lucy. The apartment is exactly as described. It's in a great location in West Hollywood (close to everything). The guest room is big and has a very comfortable bed. It also has a desk and a TV. I would recommend Larry for anyone looking to spend time in Los Angeles. I would stay at Larry's place again next year.

  • Larry (email hidden)! He was very helpful with some info about the area and took us in last minute. He even gave us a parking pass to park on the street which was is very important for the neighborhood. He was very cool with us having drinks in the kitchen and helping ourselves to some fruit/tea. (email hidden) and a very cute dog!

  • It (email hidden). Larry (email hidden) and Lucy, his dog, was one of the best parts of LA. I would recommend Larry and Lucy for anyone looking to spend time in LA. I was moments away from so many of the must see spots. The location was safe and clean and the whole experience was great.

  • Larrys place is in a great location in West hollywood for getting about, it's close to lots of good places to eat and if you don't drive like I do it is ideal and price wise very reasonable if you are not looking to spend much. The room has everything you need in it and was comfortable and the shared bathroom was clean. Larry was efficient as a host with providing on a practical level but I have to be honest and say that he is not one for small talk so I found conversation a little awkward with him, I personally would have appreciated a bit of a warmer and friendlier environment to stay. The fridge where I kept my food could have done with a clean as well. However, if you want to stay somewhere where you can just go about that is in a good area and do your thing and are on a budget this is fine for fitting that bill.

  • Larry's apartment is surprisingly really close to the hot spots in West Hollywood and the Sunset Strip. There's a reasonably priced and very good sushi restaurant just down the street and there's all sorts of places to buy sundry items.
    The bedroom he provided to me was generous in size and included a nice desk with full internet access. I always felt I had nice privacy in his apartment, particularly since he's so quiet and peaceful.
    His shower with the London Tube curtains is really nice with good pressure too.

    December 2013
  • It was a no hassles stay. Larry was accomodating, helpful and unobtrusive. Just what I needed.

I'm a pretty mellow guy, a professional writer, quiet, and respectful. I do work from home some days, on a laptop in the living room mainly. LGBT friendly. My philosophy is, we do our own things, and have a mutual respect for privacy. As a traveler, I don't expect you to spend much time with me. I'm pretty independent, though it is nice to mix it up a bit with people. If you request a reservation, please have an airbnb profile filled out and tell me a little bit about your plans and needs for your trip. Please understand I cannot accept people into my home if I know nothing about them.
