About our home

As my main and only home, I have made this as comfortable an oasis from busy Los Angeles as I can. Lush tropical gardens surround the home, enclosed behind a tall wall for privacy, noise and security. 5 blocks from the beach, 7 blocks from the tony Montana Ave, or a short drive to the Pacific Palisades or Downtown Santa Monica, the home is ideal for anyone wanting to experience the best of what Los Angeles has to offer. Lots of natural light! Skylights throughout the house. Leave the doors open all day and feel the ocean breezes flowing through the house!

A private back patio, walled in and surrounded by bamboo and flowers, with comfortable seating, lounging, a fire pit, dining table(seating for 8), heat lamps for cool nights, a large umbrella for hot days, and a gas BBQ is an ideal place to have your morning coffee, spend a lazy afternoon or enjoy sunset cocktails.

The kitchen is fully stocked as we love to cook. 6 burner Wolf range with oven, and any and all cooking instruments, pots, pans and equipment you could ever want. Dishwasher. Rancillio Silvia espresso machine if you know how to use, if not there are Pour-Over options for coffee, Cuisinart drip coffee maker, or tea pot. There are also 2 fantastic artisan coffee shops within a 3 minute drive or 10 minute walk.

Living/Dining room is adorned with crystals, art and fossils collected around the world. (AS A RESULT WE DO ASK FOR A $1000 REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT) The dining table seats 6 easily, and can squeeze 8. Comfortable chairs, sofa and coffee table surround a 55" tv with 250 channels of cable, HBO, SHOWTIME, Netflix, and Amazon Prime viewing options.

The master suite has a walk in closet, attached spa bath with huge soaking tub, his and her sinks and double shower heads. King bed and television, with double doors opening onto the private back patio finish the room.

The second bedroom has a queen bed, closet, plenty of light and windows, skylight, attached private bath has shower, and steam if wanted.

There is a guest bathroom adjacent to the living room/kitchen, with toilet and sink for use by all.

I ask for $150 cleaning fee to pay for the maid to come after your stay and completely clean the house. She is also available to you, if you like during your stay, at your expense.


More about us

  1. Hi. I love to travel and have a flexible schedule. I've lived in Chicago, NYC, Paris and Los Angeles. I speak relatively fluent French and competent Italian. I take good care of my house and will take good care of any place I stay. I respect that these are our homes, not rentals.

  2. I'm an avid cyclist and love the outdoors. So places with easy access to trails, good cycling roads, outdoor activities will tend to be my preference. I do have a small 20 lb dog, Hopper, who might occasionally travel with me locally(not always), and am pet friendly if they are well behaved, not diggers, or excessive barkers.
