Great relaxing room centrally located in the historic South Carthay neighborhood of Los Angeles. Read my 90+ reviews, they speak for themselves! (There is only one bathroom and it is shared with me). Two blocks from Beverly Hills and close to WeHo. Sorry, no pets.

The space

Historic, safe neighborhood (South Carthay). Building is from 1936. Centrally located and close to West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Hollywood attractions. Hardwood floors throughout. Street parking, public transit close by, coin operated laundry in building, and garden patio area outside back door for quiet reading or having a cup of coffee. I have lived in this apartment for 24 years and I am renting out my extra bedroom. Nice, quiet, 49 year old, gay man. Great place for a couple on vacation for a few days or someone working in the area who doesn't want to stay in a hotel. Full kitchen, living room and dining room privileges. Living room has a 46" flat screen, blu-ray, wifi, and apple tv, Netflix streaming, and I will gladly share. The bedroom has a queen sized mattress and bed and is very comfortable. Plenty of street parking and great access to all public transit. I gave up my car 15 years ago and have been using public transit since, with very few regrets. I can show you how to get just about anywhere you'd like to go by way of bus, subway or train and I'd be happy to help. It's not my rule but there are no pets allowed in the building, so if you have an animal it's not the place for you, sorry. Two people are the maximum I can allow as there is only one bathroom and it gets a little complicated trying to manage that one drawback. Thanks!

Guest access

Guests are welcome to use just about anything in the apartment. I like to watch movies a few nights a week in the living room but am perfectly fine with sharing or showing you how to use the television and apple TV. I have almost anything you could want in the kitchen as far as appliances such as a Cuisinart food processor, vintage Oster blender, Vitamix blender, Swissmar Borner mandoline, KitchenAid mixer, Henckels knives, Le Creuset cookware, etc. As long as you take care of them I love sharing.

Interaction with guests

I work full time Monday-Friday retouching photos for an online shoe company. Some guests I tend to see all of the time and others I hardly see at all, depending on their schedules.

Other things to note

Two things that I get asked often: No, I cannot accept guests with pets of ANY type. This is not my decision, it's the landlord's policy. Also, I live in the apartment and there is ONE bathroom, so, yes, we will be sharing that bathroom.
Please take the time to read some of my reviews before booking. I haven't had anything but a good experience yet with my guests and I hope it stays that way. Since I am in the apartment at the same time you stay here, I try to give people their space and help out when it's needed.

I don't have many rules around here other than basic reciprocal respect. If you cook and make a mess, just clean it up. I don't have any problem with people coming home as late as they please as long as they make an attempt to be quiet. After all, if you're on vacation you should be having fun! Also, no problem with drinking. No smoking allowed inside room or the rest of the apartment.

As first time visitors to LA, and first time AirBnB-er's, we were delighted with Jeff's awesome abode and warm hospitality. Everything required is there and nothing was an issue. The room is tastefully decorated, very private, quiet and sooo comfortable. The location is central (eat at the Prospect Gourmand just round the corner in Beverley Hills - exquisite and so reasonably priced!) He truly deserves all the wonderful reviews he receives.

Jeff's place has so much character and personality that we were sad to leave! Room was very comfortable and Jeff really pays attention to the little details. His place is centrally located near all the hot spots in LA as well as the local unique places. Jeff also accommodated our late check in and made our stay in LA a great one.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Jeff. Jeff is great and very good at helping us navigate LA's public transport. The room was perfect, clean and tidy. We didn't have a car so location was key. Jeff's place was perfect for this.

Jeff and his super cozy home were one of my highlights of my trip to California. The house was situated in a wonderful residential area that was safe, quiet and very accessible by Uber/ friends. Inside the house everything was ready for me when i arrived including my towels, bus cards, wifi, hairdryer etc. The rooms were tastefully decorated, and comfortable. No question when i visit next, it will be at Jeff's.

What a comfortable, affordable, and beautiful stay. Not only does Jeff have brilliant and captivating taste in decor, he was a gracious host who has thought of every little detail to provide comfort. It's rare I have felt so at ease my first night staying somewhere, but this was just an oasis from the clamor of the city. A very laid-back place with great energy!

46 year old gay male who has lived in my apartment since 1992 (originally from Kansas City). I work at home doing retouching and color correction for photographers. I also paint, draw and make sculpture. Easy going. I am a local history buff and know many things to do in Los Angeles that aren't usually found in guidebooks. I also ride public transit and can tell you how to get just about anywhere without a car. Vegetarian for 25 years, but not the pushy kind. People should do whatever is right for them. I love to travel and my favorite place to visit is anywhere in India or Nepal.
