About the Homestay
Minutes from LAX, our sunny craftsman-style bungalow is a historical work of art. Private guest bedroom easily fits two; other less private spaces for larger groups. PRIVATE BATH! 1 block from the Forum, quick access to Hollywood, beaches, downtown.
You'll have your own PRIVATE BATHROOM with a shower and tub. We have TWO beds:
-One queen bed in *private* guest room
-One queen air mattress, will share guest room with queen bed above
Ample street PARKING available with our parking passes! If you have a car we will collect a $25 deposit for the parking pass, since they have a habit disappearing, which will be refunded when you return the pass.
The home has lovely wood floors and details in every room. We have a quiet and comfortable library to read or meditate in, and a lovely wood-burning stove in the living room. Outside, we have a 4-person hot tub, table and chairs, an outdoor firepit with plenty of stocked wood, and a lovely garden.
Please NOTE: Our convenient proximity to the airport means that we do have airplane and traffic noise outside the home. Earplugs are provided for each guest, though this noise is easily mitigated by closing the thick windows and doors.
We have three dogs. Two are tiny indoor hypoallergenic dogs, and they are crated at night. One is a large mostly outdoor dog. All are sweet and love having guests!
We do have a lovely hard-sided crib/baby bed available for small children. We can also place the child's mattress on the floor in the bedroom if you prefer. Please let us know if you'd like us to set this up for you!
Please note there is a flight of STAIRS up to the home. This may not be suitable for the elderly or those with disabilities.
PARKING: You are responsible for reading the signs near where you park your car. Street cleaning is on different sides of the street Wednesday and Thursday, meters, etc. We are happy to help guide you, of course!
CHECKIN TIME: You may check in anytime after 3PM, but no later than 10PM on weeknights, and 11PM on weekends. We can allow for later checkin times for special circumstances, if it is pre arranged.

Nuestra estancia en casa de Morgan y Jon fue fantastica!! Son muy simpaticos y agradables .Cualquier duda que teniamos nos la solucionaban.... La casa una verdadera preciosidad!! La habitacion super amplia y acojedora. Y sobre todo el cariño que le cojimos en 5 dias a Dante,Darwin y Skinny (pero sobre todo a Dantito :) ) Gracias por estos dias con vosotros,os esperamos por España !!
Morgan and Jon are so kind that they brought me to Santa Monica and various stores such as restaurants, super markets and Randy's Doughnuts.They were always caring of me. Every morning, I took a walk with them and their family members ( 3 lovely dogs ! ), and every night I ate dinner with them, and I talked a lot with them even though I can't speak English well.
I hope I stay with them again!
This was my first time using homestay, and my experience was great! You have a beautiful bedroom and bathroom to yourself, three amazingly adorable dogs, breakfast options, and maps, etc of the area. Morgan and Jon are the best/most perfect host you can ask for! I recommend them be your first choice when visiting LA! They provide privacy but are also extremely friendly!
Great experience! Everything in the house is neat and pretty, the neighborhood is good and the hosts are nice people! :)
