Looking for international and interesting visitors, who can contribute to home maintenance or yard work. We prefer to host up to four nights, Monday thru Thursday, and we rarely host on Friday or Saturday nights.
About the homestay: Our home is in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, north of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood. Public transit is available within about a half mile walk (under 1km); however, using a car sharing service or a rental car might be best since LA transit takes a lot of time.
About us: We're a gay couple, together for more than 15 years. We tend to be busy, though we always make time to chat with our guests over dinner. We also have a housemate who often likes to chat when he's home.
Los Angeles is known for celebrities and traffic, not to mention sunny weather. To be honest, we're not quite like most Los Angelenos. For example, we don't own a television. However, we're nice people who can host you while you explore LA.
About the exchange: We need home maintenance (such as repairs / handy work / minor construction) and sometimes yard work (such as weeding / digging), depending on your skills.
The guest room has a sleeper sofa, and we can put an airbed on it to make it more comfortable. The bathroom is shared. You're welcome to enjoy the pool area; swimwear is optional. We provide food for breakfast and lunch and we cook dinner or have it delivered by a restaurant. No indoor smoking.
