House Rules

We're honest and you be too. We're respectful of you, so please be respectful of us, our other guests and very importantly, our neighbors. This is our home and we want you to feel very comfortable. We never have guests when we're out of town, so if you want to know something, just ask. We're here to help!

*All guests need a full profile with ID verification, a clear, identifiable photo and completed profile which includes telling us who you are, what you do, and a little bit about your life. We also need to know about travelling companions.

*If you're new to Airbnb or haven't made a proper profile it would be great if we knew something about you personally, as you know EVERYTHING about us.
Remember, Airbnb is a social site, and a little friendly info goes a long way. Also if you are traveling with someone it would be better if we had a picture of you two.

*We live in a desert and California is suffering a severe drought. Please do your best to not waste water and electricity. Please limit showering to 5 or 10 minutes, and please, no midnight showers as you may disturb the other guests.

*Please don't smoke inside, but smoking outside is fine. Please don't smoke e cigarettes in the house.

*No additional guests unless previously agreed to; additional guests may not check in before the Airbnb account holder.

*Any early arrivals (before 3:00 pm) and late arrivals (after 11:00 pm) need to be agreed to by us before booking, so please let us know if you have an unusual arrival time so we can see if we can accommodate you.

*We live in a quiet neighborhood. Curfew for hanging out in the backyard is 11 pm on Sunday-Thursday and 12 am on Friday and Saturday. It's OK to duck out for a smoke, but please be respectful of the neighbors and keep voices down after these hours.

*Both guest rooms may be booked during all or a portion of your stay, and you will be sharing a bathroom. We clean the bathroom daily but please do your best to leave the bathroom as clean as you found it. Please be respectful of the privacy and comfort of other guests.

*Close doors softly, especially during quiet hours. Please don't slam your bedroom door or bathroom door.

*If you turn in for the night after we do please check that all ground floor windows and doors are closed and locked.

*Please be very careful with our house keys. We give keys to Airbnb account holders only. If you lose the keys or fail to return them we will immediately re-key the door at your expense.

*We're as terrified of bed bugs as you are, so please, absolutely no luggage on the beds. Luggage goes in the closets on the luggage racks. All beds are completely stripped and washed after every stay, the pillows run in the dryer on high, and both the mattresses and box springs are bagged.

*If you borrow our bikes you are responsible for damage or theft, and you are solely responsible for any damage to property or injury to yourselves and/or others. You'll need to provide your own safety gear (so please bring it with you) and you MUST sign a release before you take the bikes out and return by nightfall. Our bikes are almost new, so please treat our bikes as your own. Ride safe, have fun!

*Our sheets and linens are of high quality. If you use a hair coloring, lotion or oils that stain them you will be responsible for replacement costs.

*We will hold you to our published cancellation policy and it will be handled automatically by the Airbnb system, so please be sure before you book. If you need to cancel you need to contact Airbnb. We do not accept re-booking by guests that cancel (except under extenuating circumstances), so please check with us if you have cancelled in the past and want to stay in our home.

*We reserve the right to change at our discretion any reservations (including instant book) over 7 days in duration from to moderate to strict cancellation policy rules.

*For your protection and ours, we don't accept or extend reservations outside of the Airbnb system.

*Most of all, have fun, enjoy our home!

Johnny & Mark were amazing hosts! They showed us around their remarkable design & art in the house. The place was absolutely gorgeous and very clean. The breakfast & coffee in the morning was perfection and we would absolutely stay here again. Thank you for making our Anniversary a great one!

We had a great time at Johnny and Mark's place. They gave us great restaurant recommendations for our night in town. The outside area is really beautiful and my boyfriend said that he got the best night of sleep of our vacation there.

Johnny and Mark are terrific hosts and their home is very comfortable. Exceeded our expectations and would love to stay here again in the future. We made use of the bikes and the bike track is very handy. Breakfast was delicious. The whole experience was top notch. Highly recommend this gorgeous Airbnb. complete with their two very friendly (and just a little spoilt, haha) dogs. Thank you both for your warm hospitality.

Mark and Johnny's house is truly wonderful and it's in a perfect location (15 minutes by bike from the beach and 10 minutes by car from the airport). The room has everything you need and the bed is very comfortable with really soft linen. The house is very clean and tastefully decorated and fornitured (exactly as you can see in the pictures). Every morning we enjoyed the delicious breakfast outside in their peaceful garden. Mark and Johnny were always ready to give us suggestions about the city or to start interesting conversations, I wish we had more days to spend at their house! Everything was just perfect! I would definitely recommend them!

Even though I had a short stay, Mark and Johnny were great hosts and made sure I was comfortable, they answered all my question and were very acommodating with the fact that I had a flight hours after my checkout. Beautiful house, super comfy bed, and great breakfast!

Johnny & Mark User ProfileJohnny & Mark is a superhost.

We're Johnny and Mark, a super-fun, committed (25 years and counting) and married gay couple in our 50s. We live on Ballona Creek in Del Rey, 3.5 miles from the gorgeous Pacific Ocean. We share our beautifully and recently renovated home with our hilarious and well-behaved dogs Wolfgang and Hedwig (we hope you love dogs) and you're welcome to join us on one of our daily local hikes. We're right on the famous Ballona Creek Bike Path; you can grab one of our beach cruiser bikes and head out to the beach at Playa Del Rey or to the Marina, Venice, Santa Monica and Manhattan Beach.

We have 2 beautiful guest rooms, one with a queen-sized bed, the other with a double bed. We can sleep 4 comfortably and if you're more we can figure something out. Both rooms share a private bath and have premium streaming cable TV with HBO, Showtime, Epix, Cinemax, Netflix, Amazon and super-fast wifi.

We're a non-smoking vegan household, but smoking is OK outside and non-vegan food items are OK too. We may be vegan but don't worry: we're tolerant, non-judgy and non-preachy vegans.

Explore Los Angeles (you'll always do best if you rent a car and have GPS capability) and let us insiders point you toward some of our favorite places such as Marilyn Monroe's crypt, the best views of the Hollywood sign, the stores where the studios sell their wardrobe collections, plus other places only real Angelinos know. We love our city and want you to live with us as a local, and that means if you're around there'll be drinkies on cocktail nights (Mark makes a mean vodka martini!). Of course, breakfast is always included.

Our home is your home. Johnny parle un excellent français y habla OK español (para un chico blanco). Mark taler perfkt dansk, og OK norsk. Wir sprechen OK Deutsche.
