Originally from the East Coast (NJ, NY, Boston) I'm a Production Designer and I teach Art Direction (backgrounds and props for movies). My husband is a props and fine art fabricator - originally from New Zealand. We've both been in LA over 10 years and love it!

I love to garden and cook. My husband loves to tinker and surf the web. We have a mellow first grader who loves to draw and dance. We mostly keep to ourselves in order to give you privacy, however, we're happy to give you recommendations for stuff to do: museums, eateries, farmers markets, and local gems that aren't in guide books. My cell is always on, so if you need anything while you're staying with us I'm only a text, email, or whisper away.

We're omnivores, but are used to vegan and vegetarian diets as our good friends all seem to be vegan, lactose intolerant, or gluten free. We know where to get what you want for your special diet, or can make a quick phone call to find out!

Having travelled quite a bit, I've always preferred b and b's to stale, boring chains. Why stay in a cookie cutter hotel when you can stay somewhere local and meet fun people? Total local immersion makes a trip that much more memorable. We hope that you'll enjoy your stay with us.
