We are a retired couple who enjoy the adventure of travel and understand traveling and travelers. We enjoy our pretty neighborhood, and the peacefulness of our home. English and Spanish are spoken fluently and Julian is somewhat capable of speaking and understanding French and Italian, with a bit of Catalan. We love Airbnb and have used it as guests as well as hosts. We love to meet new people and share cultures. As hosts, we want to provide guests a comfortable and affordable place to stay so they take home fond memories of Los Angeles.
