About Tom Bishel

My wife and I work in the entertainment industry. We love traveling and we love meeting new people. My wife speaks German fluently and is conversant in French. We are eager to be of help with advice and suggestions as you explore all of the exciting and beautiful things that Los Angeles has to offer. We have three adorable, well-behaved rescue dogs who also love to welcome new guests! They live with us in a separate dwelling so there is no contact between them and guests (in case of allergies) unless guests want it.

There are lots of fine restaurants and shops at the end of our block, within easy walking distance.

Tom Bishel purchased this house in 2001

Why Tom Bishel chose Atwater Village

This is a private 2 bedroom space that sleeps 6 comfortably, and is central to major attractions that Southern California has to offer. It is also a very walkable, safe neighborhood with lots of great shops and restaurants, and nearly every kind of cuisine one desires is within a 10-minute walk.

What makes this house unique

The space is on a quiet, tree-lined street, and a mere 2 minute walk to a vibrant blvd with shops, restaurants and nightlife. We're close enough to it that it's convenient, but far enough away to not be bothered by the (sometimes) noise level.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tom was amazing . Before we even arrived Tom was helping us find the nearest drugstore for my friend so she can receive her allergy prescription. Once we got there he gave us a walk through of the amazing and spacious home. He was able to help us out when we locked ourselves out.

Charming house and patio- amazing neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 absolutely loved it here- Heidi and Tom thought of everything- snacks to welcome us, bottled water, a neighbor map with favorites- and let me tell you, all 4 of us fell in love with the neighborhood! The patio was so welcoming at night to enjoy a glass of wine and reflect on our day while the kids relaxed in their bedroom. If we are ever in LA again we will be staying here again- in fact wish we hadn’t left when we did!
