Single, 47 year old urban planner. Transplant to LA from NYC 12 years ago. Enjoy hikes and dogs and healthy eating.
The house is really great as well as the view. I enjoyed staying at Tom's house and would stay again when I visit LA in the future. Note that he has very friendly dogs that love meeting new people. Getting to his house can be a bit tricky but it's not that complicated. There is a free parking nearby his house and the whole neighborhood is safe.
I stayed at Tom's beautiful Hollywood Hills home for three weeks in July 2012. His place is atop a gorgeous canyon facing the Hollywood sign. It was wonderful having my coffee in the morning on his expansive deck and enjoying the beautiful view - truly magical! Tom was very accommodating and we had some fabulous dinners together. His beautiful pups - Orpheous and Clyde are so lovable and will provide great company. The guest bedroom is a nice size and the guest bathroom is beautiful. I had full kitchen privileges as well. Tom even helped with getting my TV to work and I had full cable. I spent many morning going on long walks. The views and homes are spectacular! My only precaution: the roads up to his home are super narrow. The easiest way up is the Canyon drive to Spring Oak route. Do not take the (website hidden) maps direction up Van Ness or you will be driving around for a half hour trying to find his place. I would love to stay with Tom again my next time in L.A. I feel like I have an extended family in L.A. now! Thanks so much, Tom, Orph and Clyde! I will be back!
I stayed for a week with Tom. He was a great host, went to great pains to make my stay comfortable and to make me feel welcome. He was available when required but never intrusive, and the house is lovely.
I will miss his friendly dogs
I stayed two nights in Tom's home and was totally satisfied. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood yet is only minutes from the Strip. Very clean guest room with a new, comfortable mattress. I awakened both mornings to a beautiful view right through the bedroom window and then enjoyed my breakfast on the deck overlooking an even more expansive view. Excellent communication with Tom by both email and telephone which continued even after my arrival as Tom had an obligation and was not available for my checkin. We did meet in person later on. Tom is a very personable host and his dogs Orpheus and Clyde are terrific companions.
Tom has been an excellent host and his house is very quiet and peaceful. Perfect if you need to take some time off from everything. The view is really amazing and the two dogs are very friendly.
I definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants a quiet and independant stay in Hollywood.
Thank You Tom !!
Tom was an excellent host, and the view from his house is fantastic. There are great places to hike in the nearby canyons. He also has two very sweet dogs. I was in the area for work and the location is very central, yet also quiet and relaxed. Thanks Tom!
Tom is very friendly and accomodating. He has a small house in the hollywood hills with a gorgeous balcony view of the canyon and the Hollywood sign. The guest bathroom is small but very well designed and appears recently renovated in excellent condition. Great shower and perfect lighting. I recommend a stay here.
Very nice guests, left the apartment in proper condition, everything was fine. We would be happy to welcome them again!
Tom was fantastic! A great communicator and it was a pleasure to meet him. He was very respectful of the place and left it very tidy. Would be glad to have him back sometime.
Tom and partner were great guests, we would recommend them to other hosts and would love to host them again.
