We offer a small guest suite located in the lovely Los Angeles suburb of Lakewood where the streets are tree-lined and the neighborhood feels like a small town. Our home is completely SOLAR POWERED during the day. Private bedroom for 2 & private bath in gay male couple's home. The bedroom is one hundred ten square feet/10.22 square meters total). The bedroom does not have a lot of space for sitting/lounging outside the bed itself. But there are a couple of small chairs & a bench inside the bedroom. So if you require tons of lounging space inside the bedroom, this space may not be for you. These houses were built during a time when Americans did not require as much space as they do now. We do invite you to use the front living room for lounging/relaxing/reading. There is plenty of space there and you are most welcomed to utilize it. We offer a queen size tempurpedic bed. The room has a microwave, small refrigerator, toaster, tea pot, coffee press, 2 luggage racks, a 42" flat screen tv with cable & DVD player. We have free wi-fi & a keyless entry. There is a small library in the room with lots of travel books & maps of the LA area, California & further afield. The room is adjacent to the garden where there is a tranquil water fountain & lovely plants (in season). A very quiet & comfortable place to relax after a long day of sightseeing in one of the world's great cities.
We are owned by 2 lovely, very friendly cats that are clean & quiet. Keep this in mind if you are allergic to cats. The cats are not allowed inside the guest suite or living room at any time...even when there are no guests in the suite. So you will most likely not even see them unless you peek outside the window to the garden area.
Je parle assez bien le français.
Yo hablo bastante bien el español.
There are dozens of really great restaurants nearby & we sometimes have coupons & can recommend our favorites.
The weather is beautiful almost year round, we are approximately 7 miles from Pacific ocean beaches. Here are our approximate distances from some of the major sites in & around LA:
*Knotts Berry Farm-----9 miles
*Universal Studios-----30 miles
*Six Flags Magic Mountain-----50 miles
*Santa Monica Pier-----30 miles
*Downtown Los Angeles-----20 miles
*Long Beach California-----13 miles
*Malibu California-----42 miles
*San Diego California-----108 miles
*Palm Springs California-----105 miles
And here are our approximate distances from local major airports:
*LGB (Long Beach)-----5 miles
*LAX (Los Angeles)-----21 miles
*SNA (John Wayne/Orange County)-----25 miles
*BUR (Burbank)-----33 miles
*ONT (Ontario )-----42 miles
There are several bus stops within walking distance. But we highly recommend that our guests have a car as, unfortunately, the public transportation in LA is not as ubiquitous or as efficient as it is in other great cities of the world. You'll save a lot of time by having your own transportation.
We are close to just about everything you might want to see in LA but in a place that feels like you're not in the city. You find hospitality, privacy & a relaxing atmosphere after a long day of sightseeing or visiting family or friends. NO "CLEANING FEE"!!!

As much or as little as the guests prefer.
If you wish to book the suite, please make sure that before you inquire, you have all of the "airbnb verifications" on file. And if there will be an additional guest, please let us know the full name of your guest & where the guest is from. NOTE: We cannot accept bookings from airbnb guests on behalf of someone who is NOT verified with airbnb. If you are booking for someone else, you must book them as a, "business trip" & click that you are the "booker" & enter all the information for the guest that is required of airbnb.
Please review this policy from airbnb:
Can I book on behalf of a friend or family member?
Transparency and trust are vital to the Airbnb experience. People rely on information in Airbnb profiles, reviews, and other verifications when deciding whether to host or stay with someone.
We require Airbnb reservations booked for personal travel to be booked by the person who's going to stay at the listing.
Instead of making a reservation for someone else, consider referring them to Airbnb. You can refer them to Airbnb directly from your dashboard by clicking the Invite Friends button. When a referred friend or family member successfully completes a qualifying reservation, you’ll earn travel credit.
For business trips, Airbnb allows designated bookers at companies enrolled in Airbnb for Business to book trips on behalf of others. If you book travel for a company.
Welcome to Lakewood California. We appreciate you considering staying with us and we will do as much as we can to make your stay a very pleasant one. We hope you will find the following information helpful and if you ever have any questions or need something that you cannot find, please let us know.
Please be considerate & if you wish to have "guests" visit you in the suite, speak to us first & explain who & when. This keeps us from encountering any "strangers" in our house. We will very much appreciate your cooperation on this matter.
If you need to leave the house at any time we ask that you lock the front door behind you by pressing the center key on the keypad (the key has a “lock” icon printed on it). Please do not lock the bottom part of the door…only the keypad lock (dead bolt). Your entry code will be given to you upon arrival.
Your suite consists of 1 bedroom & 1 detached but adjacent bathroom and these 2 rooms are yours for the duration of your stay with us. We have no “modesty requirements” for you during your stay but if you do, please keep in mind the following; there is another room at the end of the hall across from your room that we use as an office. We will be entering that room each day & night at various times to conduct business on a computer & printer. We will be as quiet as we can & we will keep the door to the office closed most of the time.
Southern California has its fair share of ANTS. We choose NOT to have a company come & spray toxic chemicals to temporarily rid our house of ants. The ants are part of nature & are generally not a problem inside the house. You may see an ant or two & we hope you won't be alarmed. If you see a LOT of ants, please let us know & we will spray some non-toxic chemicals to keep them away. Ants are attracted to food, so please keep the space free of food left out...even crumbs.
Please also feel free to use the front sitting room where the piano is located and if you play piano, please enjoy the piano from between 10am to around 8pm. Please also enjoy any of the books in the libraries.
Please note that we have 2 cats but they are not allowed in the guest suite or in the front part of the house. They are, however, allowed outside, not far from one of the windows of the guest suite. Make notes before you book if you have allergies.
Southern California has been in a severe drought over the past several years. Though we recently had lots of rain & the drought has weakened, we ask that you please still be mindful when using water by reusing your bath towels & NOT leaving water running when you're not using it, i.e., while brushing your teeth. Also please try to keep showers as short as possible. If you need clean bath towels they are in the bottom drawer under the sink. Also help us conserve energy by turning off lights and electronic devices that are not being used.
Please be mindful of heavy perfumes/colognes & things that could leave odors/stains in the suite that may be difficult to remove. There is absolutely NO SMOKING inside the house & no smoking near the house. If you MUST smoke, we ask that you smoke outside, away from the house so that the smoke does not blow inside the windows. And please try to keep it "light" as clothing & hair absorb cigarette smoke odors & those odors are transferred to the house & fabrics when you come back inside.
The ceiling fan in your room can be turned on or off by a switch on the wall to the right as you enter the room & the fan speed & lighting can be individually controlled by pulling the cords attached to the fan & lights. Feel free to keep it on low while you are out to keep air circulating. Let us know if it gets too warm or too cool in your room & we will try to make adjustments. Even during the hottest part of the summer, turning the ceiling fan on is usually sufficient to keep the room at a very comfortable temperature at night. It is rare that we need to turn on the air conditioner in summer or heater in winter.
This is a close knit neighborhood of working families so be mindful of noise, especially at night.
We prefer that you park on the street in front of the house. And PLEASE, when parking on the street (ANYWHERE), please do NOT park in the MIDDLE of a space that will accommodate TWO vehicles. BE courteous & leave enough space either in front of your vehicle or behind your vehicle for another vehicle to park. Most families use the front of their own homes for parking their own vehicles. But you may legally park anywhere on the street. Just be mindful of driveways and don’t block them. Also, every THURSDAY from 7am-12noon is “street sweeping” day so you must park in our driveway. Any vehicles parked on the street will be ticketed. The sweeper usually comes between 7am & 8am. After the sweeper comes (make sure you SEE the sweeper), you may once again park on the street & will not be issued a ticket. We will make arrangements for you to park in the driveway Wednesday night before bed.
We offer complimentary coffee, tea, sweeteners & creamer. There is a coffee press, tea pot, toaster, microwave & small fridge inside the room's closet.
The monitor in your room is not set up as a “television” but is in fact a computer with internet access. It is controlled by mouse & by touch screen. You may also play DVDs and CDs. Some DVD movies are provided for your entertainment.
Wi-fi code will be given to you upon arrival & is included in the nightly rate.
We ask that you please enter and leave through the front (green) door and that you lock the door behind you by pressing the “lock” key on the keypad when you leave.
We hope you have a very pleasant stay with us and again, please let us know if you need anything. Wes grew up in southern California & I (Mark) have been in the LA area for over 25 years & am originally from Western Kentucky. Feel free to ask us about the area, any attractions, museums, theaters, et cetera that you are interested in visiting. We will very much appreciate any feedback you could leave us about how we can improve our business. Positive feedback is also welcomed on www.airbnb.com. We want you to have a very pleasant, comfortable stay & look forward to meeting you.
Thank you again for considering us.
