I operate a full business center and can help you with pick ups and drop offs, UPS services and events. Catering, yoga, personal training and massage can be arranged. I also speak Dutch, German, and kitchen French. I would like you to have a relaxed and inspiring visit at my little oasis in the City of Angels where good things happen!
Everything in the home and garden comes with the main house. Also, the guest house ground floor bedrooms (with en suite bathrooms) are available if you choose to rent them as an addition to the house.
Interaction with other Guests:
The only interaction may be with me the owner, but I have a completely separate entrance on the side of the property. You may see me come through the gate in the garden from time to time. I live on the top floor of the 2 story guest house and I rent out the 2 rooms below, so you may see guests using the side entrance to the house and garden. For complete privacy, you can rent the whole property with the guesthouse or 2 bedrooms. The kind of guests I have are so varied, but mostly worldly professionals, creative, interesting and inspiring, so meeting new people can be a lot of fun :)!
OTHER RENTAL OPTIONS:
I permanently live on the premises in the guesthouse in the back on the 2nd floor, but for complete privacy, I can vacate the property. However, you will benefit from me being there since I keep an eye on things and can help you with any kind of questions regarding the house and neighborhood.

Interaction with guests
The only interaction may be with me, the owner, and my guests. You may see me come through the gate and the garden from time to time.

My guests are often worldly professionals and creatives who are interesting and inspiring, so meeting new people can be a lot of fun :)! However, interaction is completely up to you.
Other things to note
DO YOU WANT A FAST BOOKING AND CONFIRMATION?
Please take a few minutes to fill out your profile, add a photo, and connect to the social websites. It's easy and safe.
Many movies, photo shoots have taken place at my home. Business deals and connections have been made under the morning sun on my patio and more than a few guests have been inspired to relocate to LA after a stay at my little Oasis. Good things happen here and I will do my best to make your stay as relaxed and tailored to your needs as possible. I am a member of the exclusive private members club Soho House in West Hollywood and can book a table upon request.
These are additional rules BUT exceptions can be made, please ask questions. Checkin and check out can be flexible when possible. No booking under 21.
Pre arranged Parties, events ,catering / professional filming / photography are possible but different rates apply and need to be to be discussed with me before you book. Please do not wait till you get here, I will not accept "surprise parties"
I have had negative experiences with guests organizing events / parties in the past. Things can get quickly out of control with parking, music and food and drinks spilling, general unintended damages. So to avoid all that you can hire me and an assistant and I arrange everything and you can relax we do the cleaning , cooking, catering, music, parking passes ect.
Btw this is a precious home for grownups ONLY and I do not allow children under 12 to visit nor can you invite them to your party.
No music outside after 10pm , inside you can play music no problem.
No Smoking in the house and no ashes into any indoor trash cans.
Keep doors and windows closed when you smoke outside as smoke travels inside. I have 2 cleaners for 4 hours to clean the house for the next guests and can not rent the house if smells of cigarette smoke and will charge for fumigation and loss of rental income due to cigarette smell.
Show proof off ID when you check-in , for EVERY guest.
No couch-surfing, my sofa is way to precious for that. Sleepovers for non reserved guest are not allowed unless it is discussed in advance with me and I will take their ID too. This house sleeps 4 ,you can rent 2 more rooms in my guest house they sleep 2 in each, see my other listings.
