My apartment provides a perfect opportunity for people who need a place to stay for a get-away-vacation at the beach, or on business, or to stay while finding a permanent home. Also a great opportunity for foreign students coming here to study, or need temporary housing until they can find their own place. Due to my past experience, as a host family for young male and female students I would accept a single person here to study or relocate for a job.

I am a designer who works from home, and will be available to provide advice and recommendations, and to help you settle into my home.
I have a desktop computer and printer which I use for my business and it is not available for use by guests. However, you can e-mail me boarding passes and documents which I can print out for your convenience. Since I work in the office of my apartment, I will often be present during my guests stay.
I have lived abroad and continue to be interested in other cultures. I value getting to know my guests and want them to enjoy their stay in my home, in hopes they have wonderful memories to take with them when they leave. And hopefully you will come back some day!

I have no pets. No animals are allowed at this apartment complex. I ask for all guests to be quiet coming and going from the apartment buildings where I live and there is smoking only in garden/patio!
No pets. No children. Smoking on patio only. No exceptions. Please be quiet when arriving early AM or at night as a courtesy to other tenants in the two 8 unit buildings. There is a garden walkway between two buildings. I'm in the last unit on left side #4 on white door. Wire pull to unlatch wooden gate to patio entrance. Patio will be available for smoking, a drink, snack or lunch and a nightlight if you will be out for the evening.
Photo of me and my guest, Jana in red blouse from Germany, having a great and glorious day at The Getty Museum. Having had expansive and diverse experiences in the design field has allowed me to live in Europe and all over the US. I'm a "people person", open and communicative with a knack for friendships, I have also been a host family for International students, for over 7 years, enjoying the many cultures I get to learn about through each new student, can you imagine the stories I can tell? I still keep in touch and have friendships today with former students from around the world. I look forward to meeting you as well. So come visit me in my world here in the South Bay, just 30 minutes from LAX and 5 blocks from the beautiful Pacific Ocean.
In my earlier career, I spent 15 years with Tiffany & Co., from San Francisco, Chicago to Boston. These experiences have given me the opportunity to live all over the United States and design high end products. I have also spent many years remodeling old houses in these different communities, designing from the inside out, architectural design changes, swimming pool additions and landscape design.
Today I still can't live without my artistic interests so I restore and redesign custom accessories for the home using found vintage and antique items. I can honestly say I have "The Tiffany Touch". Currently I run my design practice from my studio in Redondo Beach, and you may see me working on my next "treasure".
