Rent my beautiful guest bedroom! I have a very large (1200 sq. ft.), 2.5 bedroom, nicely decorated apartment in a fabulous, quiet, safe neighborhood in the center of LA, and am renting out the large guest bedroom on a nightly, weekly, or month-to-month basis--short-term only. This isn't some crappy box-like apartment with just a futon in the corner, in a bad part of town. This is one of the nicest parts of town and is a huge, beautiful residence with all the amenities and wonderful tenants--all of that is not necessarily the easiest to find in this city. The auto-descriptor here says "La Brea," but it's in the mid-city west/West Hollywood area of LA.
If you don't know the area, location is ideal. It's very centrally located. Everything (beach, valley, airport, east side) is about 20-25 minutes by car, and if you don't have a car, every kind of business you might need to visit in LA is within walking distance (2-6 blocks, at most):
--The Grove Mall
--Cool clothes shopping (the Grove Mall, Melrose Ave.)
--Park (across street--has playground, basketball courts, and running area; lit @ night, too)
--Grocery Stores (Health food store/deli, Whole Foods, CVS pharmacy, Super K-Mart, 7-11)
--Coffee shop with free wireless
--Restaurants/Bars: Italian, Pan-Asian, Spanish tapas, Thai take-out, healthy lunch/breakfast place. My street is smack dab in the center of what's considered LA's alternative "restaurant row."
--Post office (across street)
--Fairfax District (Jewish neighborhood, temples, kosher stores & restaurants)
--Bus stop (in case you don't have a car)
Although the apartment is very close to businesses, the actual street where residence is located is an ultra-quiet, tree-lined, neighborhoody street with permit parking for residents (and guests--i.e., you) only. Building is a 1920's Spanish colonial quad-plex with friendly, quiet neighbors.
Apartment (including bedroom for rent) is fully-furnished and has been called very warm and cozy by visitors, despite the large rooms (see pics--which, because rooms are so large, generally only show half the room). Place is light and airy, with 14' beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, archway, (non-working) fireplace. Front wall overlooking street is all french door windows. Electric and plumbing have been redone. Great water pressure. Wonderful vibe. I have wireless, laundry, and both a tub and shower (picture below only shows tub side). Bedroom for rent has super comfy king-sized bed, lounger chair, clock/radio, flat-screen TV with DVD/VCR, 2 dressers, a desk, closet, and plenty of shelving, storage, and light.
I do still live here (i.e., I would still be here while you were here), but I try to be as unobtrusive as possible during your stay, and would want any short-term tenant to feel comfortable enough to come and go as they please, and make this a home away from home while here; we are quite a family in the building here. I would only ask the following:
--Non-smoker preferred, but if you must smoke, please do so outside
--No pets (I sometimes dogsit to help friends out, but that's usually brief and temporary.)
--Be respectful (to home, to stuff, to other building residents, including myself)
--Pay when move in, and add a $100 security deposit to amount owed; if you leave everything as you found it, deposit will be returned to you.
To clarify again, you would only be renting the guest bedroom as your space alone; the common areas (kitchen, laundry, living room, dining room, hallway, bathroom) would still be shared with me. Accordingly, prefer renting to just 1 guest; will consider 2 people only for very short stays. Thanks a mil!

Fabulous place! In a trendy neighbourhood, but real quiet, large and casually furnished. Susan has a busy businesslife, so there is plenty of time to enjoy the place. Susan is down to earth, no nonsense but sensitive. You will like her. After ten days I felt like at home.
