I've used AirBnB many many times as a guest and love meeting the people I meet along the way. Over 5 years ago now I decided to open my home to you, and it's been one of the best decisions I've ever made :)

I welcome you for a lovely and relaxing stay!

House Rules

Very few, per "Golden Rules":

-Leave your bedroom door UNlocked while you are out - for fire safety.
-Remove shoes prior to entering the house (no shoes throughout the house - house slippers provided).
-Avoid scuffing walls with luggage.
-No smoking or illegal drugs allowed.
-No entertaining, no outside guests allowed: If you have family/friends in town, please ask them to wait outside for you.
-Request instructions for use of any appliances, and which pots & pans are for guests.
-About parking on the premises:
whilst there is no parking in the house's driveway, there is plenty of unrestricted free parking throughout my neighborhood - often you can park right on our block, it happens that you might need to park 1-2 blocks down, but you will find free parking and might just need to walk a minute or three :)

**If you are bringing a dog, a $200 security deposit is required by check upon check in, but don't worry, your check will NOT be cashed (..unless there are damages). I will gladly provide doggie bowls and doggie bed but, as a courtesy to future guests, no furry friends are allowed on the human-bed, ok? ...And if you are out and about your furry friend needs to be either out with you or out in the fully fenced in and secured backyard.

BTW - do you know your preferred check in time? Anytime after 1pm is great and I'd want to ensure that I can be around and coordinate with my meetings the day you arrive. Thanks for the heads up! And were you able to see that check out is by 10am, is that ok with your plans?

If you are bringing a second guest...
As the room is just over 200sqf, it is better suited for one person, but I will gladly accept your travel companion, so long as you do not mind that the size of the room is "cozy" and better suited for one person; the bed is a very nice queen size bed, so you will both be comfortable… And, since you're just here a short while spending most of your time being a tourist out there in the city, the size of the room won't matter to you… I hope though, that by me making this exception for you, it will not reflect negatively in the feedback/review because, as I said, the room size is better suited for one person, and "cozy" for two (there's definitely room for 2 suitcases) :)

My family (myself, mom, son, and dog) stayed with Pina and we had a great time. We were warmly greeted and shown around the room and house. I really love that Pina is dog friendly. Kujo, our dog, loved exploring her beautiful zen garden. We also enjoyed the AC (it was 100°+ one of the days we were there) and found the room to be perfect for our needs. Pina was quick to get respond to my request to stay. She made it easy to communicate with her. She also asked us if there anything else she can do to make us comfortable. Overall, we're happy we stayed with her and will do so again of in the area!

My stay at Pina's house was delightful. I had not stayed in an Airbnb before this, so I had no idea what to expect. There was easy access to her house off of the Freeway. Check-in was easy, everything was where I could find it. Pina had everything and thought of so many things that one might need or want. The space was peaceful and the back garden (as well as the front) was beautiful! Even before I arrived, she gave me many recommendations based on things I liked to do. She recommended a hike which I did and loved. She recommended a restaurant which I tried and thoroughly enjoyed. Pina was very genuine, open, thoughtful, and inviting. The only struggle I had was that it was HOT in L.A. the week I stayed. But there is an air conditioner in the room that definitely helped. I highly recommend staying with Pina if you are in L.A.

Pina's place was great. Pina is so welcoming and walked me through where everything was located. The AC helped keep the place cool in a summer heat. There is a beautiful, peaceful stream in the backyard. I wished I could give Pina 100 stars for the service she provided. She was wonderful and has a nice place. I highly recommend you stay with her next time you are in LA.

Pina's apartment it's great! We stayed the last 2 night of a big trip in California. The place is clean, well organized e useful. There is also a great garden outside the apartment. The Parking is easy to find and is in a good position to visit all part of the City. Especially Universal studios,Hollywood and Santa Monica and Venice. She was very gentle to give us the information to made the check in while she wasn't in the house late at night and she was very available at any request. If we come back in L.A. we will back certainly!

This was our first time using Airbnb so we were a little hesitant on how it would go but we were definitely in the best hands. Pina is such a super host in that she has anything and everything you need, is so communicative, and is an outstanding person to get to know. I am so glad that I was able to get to stay at Pina's relaxing, and peaceful home. Even though she had been through a tragic event right before our stay she was the most accommodating person I have ever come across and I am so grateful for her making our stay in Los Angeles so amazing!! We owe her so much gratitude and I know you will too if you end up staying with her.
