Sheldon's home and garden are a gem of quietude amidst the always buzzing city. I had the fortune of staying in different parts of LA in a row, and enjoyed all of them, but this place was definitely the most ideal for discovering a lot of different areas of the city. Busses around the corner take you anywhere, and the neighborhood is safe to walk at night. The room was perfect and the Dutch tiles in the spacious bathroom made me feel right at home. I enjoyed talking to Sheldon about the development and the versatility of the fascinating place that is Los Angeles, and it helped me grab the essence of the city. I also really liked hearing his piano music in the background. Thank you for your hospitality and for sharing your insights, Sheldon!

Staying in Sheldon's amazingly beautiful house was a great experience! Sheldon was easy to get in touch with and a kind and unobtrusive host. I didn't spend much time there because of a heavy event schedule so didn't get a chance to talk much to Sheldon other than to find out we knew some people in common. I would stay here again for sure next time I'm in LA.

Sheldon is a wonderful host and the house is just fantastic. It's located in the heart of a wonderful neighborhood called Hancock Park. I flew into LA at the last minute and needed a place to stay. Sheldon's place was a perfect find. I am so happy to have found him and his home. The room is comfortable and serene and the old world decor is so lovely.

Sheldon was a terrific host; friendly, reliable, and welcoming. This was my first Airbnb experience, and Sheldon made it very easy and convenient. The room is nice and cozy, with 2 twin beds, and an adjoining bathroom. The neighborhood is lovely, safe, and quiet. I would definitely stay here again, should the need arise.
