Georgia and Sterling are a delightful duo! I had a great time talking to them and hearing about their experiences. The room provided is a master suite on the second level, is very spacious (good for us 4), well equipped with closets, tables and drawers. The kitchen and other spaces are common for the hosts and the guests. Their pet is super lovable! I enjoyed my stay here!
Das Haus ist wirklich interessant eingerichtet, aber wir hatten Staub und Spinnenweben in unserem Zimmer/ Bad. Ferner fanden wir Papiertücher auf einer Kommode und eine Socke hinter einem Sessel. Bei Ankunft nach dem Check-In-Termin war das Zimmer noch nicht vorbereitet, die Betten wurden umgehend in unserem Beisein bezogen.
Die Lage des Hauses ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für viele Sehenswürdigkeiten ...Hollywood, Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach ..alles mit dem Auto 20min entfernt.
Die Hausbesitzerin hat uns freundlich aufgenommen und gab sich viel Mühe und beantwortete unsere Fragen zu Ausflugszielen sehr umfangreich (Skizze wurde durch diese für ein besseres Verständnis gezeichnet).
Am nächsten Morgen gab es sogar frischen Kaffee für uns.
Jedoch sind wir einen Tag früher abgereist, denn wir hatten einen fatalen Fehler begangen: den Hausschlüssel im Haus vergessen und uns in unserer Notsituation an die Nachbarin gewandt. Es führte dazu, dass wir durch die Eigentümer/ Vermieteren lauthals beschimpft und beleidigt wurden. Nachdem sie ihrer Wut durch Türenknallen im Haus noch Nachdruck verleihte, trauten wir uns nur noch auf Zehenspitzen durch das Haus. Mit solch einer extremen Reaktion hatten wir nicht gerechnet. Die Einladung/ Entschuldigung am Abend auf ein Glas Wein konnten wir nicht mehr annehmen. Der Aufenthalt war in diesem Haus nicht mehr genießbar.

Georgia and Sterling were very welcoming and freely opened their whole house to us. It is filled with art and books of all kinds and we were free to make use of them. Georgia even took time to explain and show us the large sculptural commission on which she is working.
Der Empfang war herzlich und wir konnten problemlos einchecken. Das Zimmer und das Bad waren schön und sauber und genau wie in der Beschreibung.
This was a perfect stay for us and it matched 100% our needs ! Great Master Bedroom with huge bathroom ! Georgia and Sterling were great hosts and thanks again Georgia for the French Toast B'fast prior our departure. We highly recommend Georgia & Sterling's house for a family feeling stay as you fully share the house with them and this what we appreciated ! Discovering LA also from inside. If we plan a next visit to LA, we are back !!!!
About the Host, Sterling
We live in the historical West Adams part of Los Angeles and are active in the historical events of this district, such as progressive dinner tours, cemetery tours and art tours. Our home has been featured on several of these tours. Sharing our home with others has been such fun. Now expanding that fun with travelers visiting Los Angeles has totally enriched our lives. We enjoy the great cultural exchange of hosting people from all parts of the world and in the process making new friends. My mom and I are both creative. I make films and have shared our home with students to make their films. My mom is a sculptor and artist whose works adorn our home. We enjoy people and whether you want privacy or society, we make sure everyone is comfortable and get the most out of their stay in Los Angeles. We have lived here for 24 years and know our way around Los Angeles, and will gladly help guide your visit in the most efficient way.
