I want to help you enjoy LA! I have lived in Los Angeles for 19 years, and I love this city. I'll be happy to share my knowledge and experience with you so you can discover the hidden gems LA has to offer. I enjoy hosting tourists and foreigners, as I have traveled to 27 countries and plan to travel much more. One thing I learned was it's always best to hang with the locals. I also understand the challenges of getting oriented in a new city, and that's why I use Airbnb when I travel, too. I'm here to help you in addition to offering a comfortable place to stay.
I am a business owner/entrepreneur and a filmmaker. I'm not bothered by noise or guests who stay out late. I don't do drugs, I eat healthy, and I exercise regularly. My hobbies include tennis, horseback riding, boating, water sports, surfing, photography, writing, shooting, and cooking.
I love to learn about other places, cultures, and meet new people. I have studied eight languages thus far. This is why I used to host couch surfers and began hosting tourists on this site a couple of years ago. I specifically like hosting foreigners (tourists, fellow artists, and business travelers), but Americans are also welcome!
My two dogs are very friendly; one is 4 years old and the other 3 years old. They are rarely at the Horn apartment. I take them with me to work during the days, and they stay at my other apartment at night. If you like dogs, you'll love them- and they'll love you as they enjoy attention from humans. However, people with pet allergies should consider booking elsewhere as there may be some dander or hair that escaped the vacuum/cleaning.
I have two apartments in the same neighborhood. One is more for guests who want a quiet and home-like atmosphere. If you like cooking and relaxing at home, are staying for work or doing sightseeing, the Horn address is more suitable as it has a full kitchen, laundry machines, and a quiet atmosphere. For those interested in a more hip/party Hollywood experience or who need more privacy, you can stay in my guest room at my new apartment. It features a view of the city, a pool, and large air-conditioned rooms with en suite bathrooms that are separated by the living room. Either way, you'll be in one of the best neighborhoods in LA and centrally-located to Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and West Hollywood.
