Zugang für Gäste
Our home is in a unique 3-story building with no call box or automated entry system and locked up like a fortress. Guests are required to schedule their arrival so we may greet you and give you access to the building.
Once inside, there are 3 flights of stairs to reach the loft on the top floor. There, we will give you a quick tour of the space and your lovely room.
The guest bedroom is a part of a large loft that has one other private bedroom where we stay. The room has shutter style doors with a simple latch lock on the inside. We have these doors so that in case of an emergency, anyone who is in the loft will have access to the fire escape which is located off the guest room. Just outside of the two bedrooms is our office area, where we work when we are not in the gallery.
Use of the kitchen is limited to light meals and guests must provide their own provisions. We don't mind if you'd like to prepare a light bite or a simple meal, but no major cooking please.
The toilet and the shower are in separate locations and shared. Guests can have complete privacy in their room or are welcome to enjoy the spacious loft (with the exception of our office and bedroom). Since this is our home and we are pretty mellow, we prefer like-minded guests who aren’t late night drinkers or partiers and who are in before 1AM.
Interaktion mit Gästen
Los Angeles is a big city with much to see and do–we will be happy to make recommendations and explain directions. Our art gallery and store are located on the second floor of the building, so we are usually around to answer any questions or help when needed. We enjoy cooking and the occasional glass of wine or cocktail, and are usually home in the evenings.

This is a real loft, not a shiny new apartment. We have done a tremendous job making it somewhat luxurious and comfortable, there are some things to note.
This is a 130 year old brick building with no insulation. The windows have thin glass and many are without screens. We like it for fresh air and a nice breeze, but that means we get an occasional fly or mosquito buzzing about. The loft is warm in the summer and cool in the winter. The shower is a comedy of old tiles. We keep it very clean but its not the most glamorous shower in LA. The shower is located behind a folding partition, adjacent to the kitchen and living room–mostly private, but not in an enclosed room with a lockable door way. We make a point to give our guests extra space while they are in the shower area. We provide big fluffy bathrobes so you will feel cozy and covered going between your room and the shower.

My husband and I are both fourth generation Angelenos who grew up in the surf and sand of nearby Southern California beach towns. While working in the photography business, we became friends on a job in 2003 and married 4 years later in a remote temple outside of Chiang Mai, Thailand. We live in an amazing 129 year old brick building in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles where we own and operate an art gallery and store with a tiny dog named Mac. We love to travel, meet people and experience new places.
