Our beautiful 800 square-foot upstairs suite includes a queen bedroom, bath, office space, and two sitting areas. Located in the beautiful, tree-lined neighborhood of Shandon, close to the USC campus/stadium, Five Points, shopping and restaurants.
Guests enjoy the entire upstairs space, which is accessed by a stairway that is closed off for total privacy. The space includes eclectic artwork and furniture, heart of pine floors, books, skylights, ceiling fans, a flatscreen TV, speaker hook-ups for Iphone/Ipod, Wifi, separate HVAC controls, and a small fridge with tea caddy. The lovely private bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed. There is an extra charge of $25 when the futon is also used as a bed.
Our spacious suite is designed to provide an exceptional experience for 1-2 guests; however, it can easily accommodate up to two additional guests.
In addition to the upstairs suite, guests will have access to the front porch and downstairs guest bath.
We respect our guests privacy, but also enjoy sharing a cup or glass and a story when the time is right.
Parking is available curbside in front of the house. We like our guests to go shoeless indoors (Linda grew up in Hawaii), so we encourage you to bring your house slippers if you'd prefer them to bare or stocking feet. Two adult bikes with locks are available to borrow.
Guests are expected to treat our home with care and respect. We do not accommodate pets, and smoking is allowed only on the front porch.
Jim is a semi-retired teacher and Linda is a nurse practitioner, happily married for 40 years, with a son and daughter in their 30s. Besides our wonderful children and their partners, five things that keep us going: all kinds of music (current favorites - The Wood Brothers), traveling (Hawaii, Ireland, Norway, Austria, Newfoundland, NW U.S.), good movies, engaging books, and the awesome beauty of friends, extended family, and the natural world.
When traveling, we prefer to head toward the less populated, more scenic areas where we can hike/cycle and explore nature from a comfortable, friendly home base.
