Depending on the guest's check in/out time and our availability, we receive guests and check them in/out personally or remotely. We strongly prefer to meet all of our guests to help ensure that their respective stays are relaxing, fulfilling and worry free.
Should anything be needed, we can be contacted easily by phone and SMS throughout the day. Email works as well but we have found it to be slightly less efficient. With the exception of any issues, we stay to ourselves and afford our guests privacy; however, we have bee
The unit is fully furnished and we provide towels, sheets, blankets, pillows and kitchen utensils etc. We provide enough consumables (toilet paper, paper towels, soap, dishwashing detergent and laundry detergent) to get our guests started, but do not supply consumables for the remainder of their stay.
TRANSIENT OCCUPANCY TAX
** Due to LA City taxes, all guests who stay less than 31 days must pay a 14% transient occupancy tax (similar to a hotel room tax) to the city upon or before check in. This is the same tax you pay in LA hotels which we forward to LA City Hall monthly. AirBnB is unable to collect the tax at this time. We accept cash payment upon check in or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) if you prefer credit card. AirBnB support is available to confirm this.
Please treat our home with the love and respect you would treat your
own home ... or your parent’s home.
Check in: after 3PM
Check out: by 10 AM
Please inquire if you need an earlier check in or later check out and we
will do our best to accommodate it.
No smoking inside the house. Smoking is permitted on the property (in fact it is quite lovely to do so sitting in front of the fire) but we'd prefer you smoke outside and preferably with the windows closed :)
Please lock the windows and doors when you are not on site. While the
neighborhood is fantastic, it is still Los Angeles and crime does occur.
TRASH & RECYCLING
Trash is collected every Thursday. Please place trash and
recycling in the black and blue bins respectively. The green bin is for yard waste.
We understand that accidents happen; please let us know if something
breaks so it can be promptly replaced.
Please throw out unused opened food and beverage containers. If there
is something that is not perishable and useful to the next guest and you would like to leave it (coffee and other drinks, spices, sugar, etc). We welcome your generosity.
Please leave the keys in the lock box upon exiting.
