Born in Prague, Czech republic, live in Los Angeles, work as a scientist and artist in spare time. Well educated, loves to travel.
Jarka and Tom were great hosts - very kind and intellectual people. It was like staying at a relative's house. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. It was an easy 15 minute bike ride for me commuting to the third street promenade.
I had a wonderful time staying with Jarka and Tom - they were great company and really made me feel part of the family, and were also very helpful in offering me advice about things to see, how best to get around LA by car, etc. This was my first stay of this kind (I usually either stay in hotels or rent an apartment when I travel), and I'd definitely repeat the experience!
Was very nice to have Jarka back for a second stay at the apartment. She's a lovely guest.
