About Patricia

I moved to LA from the Midwest in the mid 1990s and have called LA 'home' ever since. Since 2001, I have bought, renovated and rented out historic LA homes and enjoy making your visit to LA memorable and enjoyable. I live in another house in the same neighborhood so I'm a moment away should you need anything at all. I love this home and this neighborhood and work in the area. Outside of caring for this house, I'm a Digital Entertainment Marketing executive and part-time UCLA Instructor. I love this vibrant city and know it inside and out; and I look forward to having you as my guest.

Patricia purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Patricia chose Mid-Wilshire

This property is a very special 1920's era duplex that captivated me with its charm, open layout, romantic balconies, wood floors, barrel ceilings and celebrity past. British glam-rock musician, Marc Bolan (T. Rex) lived in this home in the 1970s with his wife, Grammy nominated Gloria Jones - so this home has great vibes! She was the first singer to record the song, Tainted Love.

What makes this apartment unique

Completely renovated yet retains an old Hollywood glamour feel and is uniquely LA. Top quality 500 thread-count linens, down comforters, variety of down pillows to suit tastes, organic soaps, top quality beds.Full stocked kitchen designed for cooking.

Layout is very open for a 1920s era home. Very well appointed with 2 balconies and a spacious private back patio dedicated for this unit. You'll also have your own driveway for your car so parking is very convenient, just steps from your front door. You will be living in the entire 1800 sq. foot top floor. Extremely quiet and peaceful street. It's a refuge in the middle of bustling LA.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Patricia's place was very spacious and clean. The bed and sheets were so comfortable, I slept like a pig. One of the bathrooms had an oversized tub so that's a plus! The location was perfect for us too as the drive is half an hour or less everywhere we went. The owner was very responsive to my texts so I really appreciated that. Will definitely consider staying here again next time we are back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying at my apartment. It's great to know that the high quality beds and linens that we provide our guests are appreciated and it makes my apartment stand apart from the the others. I know that when I rent a home or hotel room, I value comfortable bed and fine linens. And the central location in LA means less time sitting in LA traffic! I hope to have you back again. Best, Patricia

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed two nights in this great spot. The place was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Patricia was very responsive to my texts. It was wonderful having our morning coffee on the cute balcony and then later a glass of wine on the same balcony. Loved it!
