The Space

I am an empty-nester with a great guest room in the West Woodland Hills community! We are two minutes from Calabasas and home to many celebrities like Howey Mandel, Will and Jada Smith, Britney Spears, Justin Bad Boy Beiber, the Kardasians, etc. (I saw Jermaine Jackson recently) who can often be spotted in our upscale shopping areas and Old Town.

My location is a very quiet, suburban area with a lot of local natural beauty, top schools and 15 minutes to Malibu. I am freeway close, near Warner Center, the Santa Monica Mountain Hiking Trails, The Calabasas Commons, Pepperdine University, local wineries, lakes and world class beaches. The excitement of Hollywood and Beverly Hills and many attractions are all within 30-45 minutes.

Our room amenities include:

Plush Full-Size Mattress
Fresh Linens and Towels
Hardwood Floors
Vaulted Ceiling
Large Window with Natural Light
Adjoining Shared Bathroom
Soaking Tub/Shower
On Site Laundry
Walk-in Closet
Sitting Area in Bedroom
Kitchen Use
Backyard with Huge Pool
Wireless Internet
Computer Monitor
TV/ Electronic Movie Screen in Living Room
Free Parking

If you are not renting a car at the airport, the best way to get to my place from LAX is to take the Van Nuys Flyaway bus for $8 that drops you off in Van Nuys in about 30 minutes. I can pick you up for a small fee of $20 to cover my gas and time. Burbank is a nicer airport, if that is an option you might consider. I really do recommend a car rental since LA is so spread out and you can even ask about renting my car too!

The Blue Surf bedroom is very inviting with new bamboo wood floors, vaulted ceilings and great fabrics I brought back from Hawaii. There are decorator accents, a nice espresso dresser and mirror, desk with computer monitor and a small love seat for reading. The paint color is an soothing ocean spray color. There is also a walk in closet for all your bags as well as a room fan, heater, iron and ironing board. I also have a personal refrigerator in the suite. The adjoining bathroom (maybe shared with another guest) has been newly remodeled with a combo shower and Japanese soaking tub, granite counters and stone floors.

I am a relaxed person and enjoy people so guests are always welcome. A simple, self-serve breakfast is included in your stay as well as a bottled water and beverages in your personal room refrigerator. The backyard pool area is perfect for relaxing after a day of sight-seeing, sipping wine ordering in! I do have a long-haired cat around sleeping under a bed so you must be pet friendly when he pops out to greet you! Happy travels!

  • Great, quiet location. Very comfortable room. As I travel for work, I'm very picky about where I stay and I'll definitely be booking with Sarah again!

  • Sarah was very friendly and welcoming host. She showed me around the house when I arrived -- the whole house was very neat and perfectly decorated, as was my bedroom. Towels, soap, and shampoo were provided. There was also a fruit and candy basket when I arrived, plus a private fridge with bottles of water, juice, and some cheese sticks. The bathroom is adjacent to my bedroom, and connected to a second bedroom which also is rented out, so I shared the bathroom with another guest, but had no issues (just need to coordinate timing for showers in the morning). The only thing I wasn't quite used to was the bed -- I tend to like firmer beds and this one was on the softer side. Overall liked my visit and would stay again. Thanks Sarah!

I am an empty nester and and have lived in this area since college and raised my family here. My lifestyle is healthy and I enjoy all the local outdoor activities. My interests are design, architecture, art, gardening, fine dining and travel. I enjoy quiet, low key and peaceful individuals who are calming to be around. I value tolerance, humility and acceptance and try to extend the same grace to others. I travel frequently for business and enjoy meeting interesting people. I love tropical environments and exotic foods.
