Interaction with Guests
We are a family and we welcome you as part of ours. We love to meet up and chat in the garden. If you are super busy touring the town our paths may or may not cross and that is OK too!
We are always available for questions or tips about the neighborhood.
This is a family neighborhood. You will see mostly single family homes, children on bikes and skateboards, lots of trees and plentiful flower gardens. This is a friendly neighborhood where a warm hello in passing is pretty much the standard.
Very safe for walking any time of the day or night.
Location, location, location! From our house everything is easy access! By car we have excellent freeway and street access. Plenty of free parking on the street.
If you choose not to drive we are one block away from the bus that goes North/South and one block away from the bus that goes East/West. That means you can pretty much go anywhere by bus! I have been told by many that Los Angeles has one of the safest and most efficient public transportation systems! We are a quick bus trip away from L.A.'s newest metro train that takes you even to the far reaching areas of Los Angeles. Only one street to and from the airport takes about 15 minutes depending on traffic. Bike paths abound and for local jaunts this is the preferred way to travel. Of course, the old fashioned walking is always very enjoyable and fruitful!
Other Things to Note
We are a family with children and puppies. You can expect to see (and hear) plenty of both running around. Since your room is detached from the house you should enjoy mostly quiet time, though my kids and I are up at 6:30 am on school days and you may hear us.
I am a professional Yoga and Pilates (mat) trainer to the stars here in Los Angeles. If you are interested in PRIVATE YOGA classes during your stay that can be arranged based on my availability. I have special discount rates for singles, or couples while staying with me.
I you want one or several private Yoga/Pilates sessions it is best to inquire directly before you arrive if possible.
We are so happy to have you with us!+ More
