A short tour in the area to orient you to your surroundings would be my pleasure if you
would like and it works for our schedules.
This is a non smoking house. No parties or loud music, please. No drugs or excessive alcohol consumption. I consider my neighbors. It is a relaxed household. Again, book ahead of time for any extra guest with airbnb.
I will have maps, restaurant suggestions and information available for you.
I am happy to share the neighborhood with you giving you all the information you need. It is a WALKING neighborhood where you see joggers and people with children and pets. We are two blocks to golf, tennis and a walking course at Rancho Park. If you have any questions, please come around to the front door and we can chat. I have lived many years in the house, which was originally built in 1928 on land that was once the ranch of a cowboy film star and now is close proximity to Fox and Sony studios. I am knowledgeable about the area and surrounding
communities. I work both at home and sometimes out.
If we are in at the same time, we can share a coffee and stories. I love meeting new people and hearing about their adventures.
I am a professional photographer/educator who speaks Spanish fairly well and reads and speaks a little French.
My majors in college both at the Univ. of Oklahoma and UCLA (M.A.) were drama and theater arts. I have a Teaching credential and a TEFL/TESOL certificate for teaching Eng as a second language.
For both business and pleasure, I've traveled independently for the most part to all continents except Antarctica. My best education has come from my travels and getting to know people from all over the world. I try to be environmentally aware and in tune with worthwhile causes.
Living in Los Angeles is perfect for walking on the beach and in the parks nearby, going to movies, museums and forums. My favorite delight now is enjoying the laughter of my granddaughter.
I hope to make some lasting friendships through the b and b as I have done with students I have hosted in my home.
