About this listing
I am renting out the guest bedroom in my beautiful Spanish-style 2-bedroom house in Atwater Village. The house features a living room, dining room, a kitchen with plenty of amenities, a covered patio, a backyard, a driveway for parking and 2 bedrooms.
I am renting out the guest bedroom in my beautiful Spanish-style 2-bedroom house. Centrally located in the Atwater Village neighborhood (one of the best neighborhoods in L.A., in my opinion ;) ), the house features a separate living room and dining room, a kitchen with plenty of amenities (juicers, a microwave, sodastream, vintage stove, bar etc...), a bathroom (shared), a closed yard with an amazing lemon tree and orange tree (delicious), an outdoor patio, a shared driveway where you can park your car (stacked parking, so one car "blocks" the other), and plenty of cool stuff like a projector, a foosball table, a bike that you can borrow from time to time, a basketball hoop etc... The bedroom I am renting has a full-size bed, a small desk, a small walk-in closet and dresser to store your belongings.
Looking forward to meeting you soon!
Central heating and air-conditioning, as well as WIFI are all included. I have a driveway for parking (fits 2 cars length-wise, but one car "blocks" the other.)
Interaction with guests
The house will be shared with me and my dog Mingus. I often socialize with my guests in the "common areas" of the house (kitchen, living room, patio and dining room), but you are welcome to be as social or antisocial as you please ;)
On rare occasions, I may have one friend or two visiting L.A. and staying overnight in the living room (this is much more likely to happen if you have booked the room for more than a couple of weeks.) If I do have a friend visiting overnight, I will do my best to let you know in advance.
Atwater is centrally located in the NorthEast part of Los Angeles (10 minute drive from downtown), between Los Feliz and Glendale, and neighboring Silverlake - right off the 5 freeway. You can walk to restaurants, bars, coffee shops, shops, the farmer's market, and dance/yoga studios; there is also a bike path nearby along the L.A. River (you are welcome to borrow one of my cruiser bikes if you want to check it out.) There is a Vons (supermarket) a few blocks away and Trader Joe's is a 5-7 minute drive.
Atwater Village is in my opinion one of the best neighborhoods in L.A! Take a look at the map and guidebook to learn more about it and find the restaurants/bars/shop near the house.
Public transportation is not extremely convenient in Atwater Village, but the neighborhood itself is walkable. There are also buses which give easy access to Glendale, Los Feliz, Hollywood and downtown. I would not recommend staying here if you are planning to be on the west side on a regular basis.
Other things to note
Though I often host month-long stays, I am not really interested in month-to-month or long term rentals. The maximum length of stay is 2 months. Thanks for understanding :)
Friendly people only please :) Make sure not to leave the front door open (as my dog might step outside.) All guests should be respectful and considerate of the house, my belongings, myself (since I live here) and my dog. Please keep everything clean, and if you are a bit messy, keep the mess in your own bedroom. Small parties at the house are ok on occasion, just give me a day's notice or so. Smoking is not allowed indoors, but is ok on the patio outside.
I am a musician from France originally, but currently living in Los Angeles, CA. I love to travel, and I love meeting people from around the world, practicing different languages and discovering new cultures. I also love trying new foods, hearing live music, writing music, watching movies and just hanging out.
I am renting out my spare room when I'm in town, and my whole house when I'm out of town (the whole house will be listed only occasionally, for a different price.) For people renting my entire house when I'm gone, I have a preference for people staying the entire time that I'm gone (or somewhere close to that.)
Whether you are renting the spare room, or the house, I am looking for guests that are considerate, respectful of my space and property and most of all nice people! Musicians are welcome! Non-aggressive, small house-trained dogs welcome! If you are bringing a dog, please let me know in advance.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions - unless I am somewhere where I wouldn't have internet for some reason, I will respond within 8 hours or much less. Thanks for reading, and hope to meet you soon!
