"How much will it cost for my stay?"
Please use the trip calculator. Top right corner of my listing. Choose the dates you'd like to stay, add appropriate number of guests. Trip total wil include Airbnb fees. Weekly and monthly dicounts will automatically appear. The longer you stay the less you pay. Weekend & holiday rates are slightly higher. No haggling. Demand is too high.
Sorry we do not pre-show the home before booking. It is an invasion of the current guest's privacy. We have more detailed photos than most and many reviews stating that the place is just as pictured. Thanks for understanding.
Any additional human or furry 4 legged guests must be added to the number guests in your reservation. Your pet counts as an additional guest. The pet must be approved by me before you bring it.
"I'm not sure what my plans are..."- Don't book until you know. If you are very particular about where you stay or have OCD, we suggest not booking (ha ha) OR booking 2 nights as a trial visit so that you are not bound to a longer reservation. You can always extend later.
I am someone who keeps my word. When you book this lising, you block other guests from making a reservation during that time. This house is constantly booked and in demand. Please plan your travel responsibly & make sure the commute is to your liking. Once you book you can not ask for a refund upon arrival. Just as we can not get back the other suitable guests that would have stayed during the time you booked with us.
I would never ask you to leave early so I could take advantage of a more lucrative offer. By the same token, I would appreciate you keeping your commitment for the time you reserve. Playing it by ear and asking for your money back is...to be honest...selfish. Hotels charge more for less and do not refund your money for early departure. If you choose to leave early, you are choosing to forfeit your money. Please do not ask for your money back. No refunds. No exceptions. I do not have the power to over ride management's policy on this.
"Can I bring a dog?"
One non-aggressive, non drooling, small to medium sized house trained dog allowed. Your pet will be counted as an additional guest so please book accordingly (To book for you plus one dog: Select 2 guests). Much cheaper than DogVacay and you get to vacay with your best friend! Your dog must get along with other animals, be house trained, and flea free. Please mention your dog in your reservation request. Include a photo of your dog. Care of your dog is your responsibility during your stay. You must accompany your dog into the yard and pick up it's poop daily. If you leave town during your stay and aren't having your dog accompany you- you need to board your dog. It can not be left here unattended.
"Can I bring a cat?" Sorry no cats
Who else lives there?
Hovey is the kindest, most generous, and warm spirited gentleman. He has lived here for 3 years. He works 7am-7pm 6 days per week with Sundays off. He is happy to offer help and local tips. He has become friends with most of the guests if they desire. If you would rather not talk to him just tell him you are shy or like to keep to yourself. He is a nice old man and will oblige. He has his own room and private bathroom. He is not interested in you romantically, trust me. LOL
Due to demand, I can't hold a room for you based on your intention to book. Asking for a discount will certainly not help you get the room over your competitors. ;) It is recommended that you book immediately after I pre- approve you. It is common for several people to inquire about booking the room at the same time. Many times someone else swoops in and books it if you wait one day. The room is on Instant Book for veteran Airbnb guests and can be reserved by those clients without my approval.
Assets that will get you approved to stay:
*Positively reviewed Airbnb guest.
*Funds readily available to pay for the full reservation
*Honest. No criminal record
*Your own Airbnb account with face showing in photo.
*Integrity = Do what you say you are going to do.
*Able to follow simple instructions
*Not asking questions that are already answered on this detailed listing.
*Experience living independently. Basic knowledge of how to use appliances and not destroy the house.
*Likes dogs/cat- not allergic either. Fear of pets makes for a very stressful and unpleasant living experience for all.
*Having a purpose for the visit. (work each day, sight seeing, etc.)
*Understanding that your host is not responsible for the weather, or anything that happens outside of the house. Guest AccessLiving room, Outdoor living room, Back yard firepit & bbq, kitchen, dining room, and laundry. Interaction with GuestsTexting me is the best way to contact me for help with anything.
You set your preference for interaction & we will follow that.
I'm an actress who designs & manufactures my line of pet carriers and accessories. I work a lot behind closed doors 7 days a week. If you don't see me it's because I'm working. I often work quietly until 5am communicating with overseas factories. Due to this, I'm not an early riser. November and December are the busiest time of year in my industry so you probably will not see much of me. My room is far from yours, near the kitchen and laundry.
Both of us work a lot and will not be in your business. The NeighborhoodMixed family neighborhood. Some with kids, some retired. Getting AroundRenting a car is the most convenient way to get around a spread out city like LA. We have ad guests stay for 3 mos or more using public tranit. The Metro line is a 5-10 minute drive from the house. There are also bus stops nearby. Metro bus 243 runs a few blocks away off of Winnetka. And there is always Uber or Lyft. Other Things to NoteWe have a keen barometer for con artists and sociopaths. All that fall into that category will be immediately removed from the house. This is strictly a drama free environment. Many of our guests have turned into life long friends. Honesty, peace, and respect is the only kind of energy we welcome here.
