Very nice place in a great neighborhood. A real treasure.

Hettie and Randy were our heroes on this trip. Not only did we get in way later than we expected, but the hosts were extremely friendly and understanding. The room is perfect, just what you need, and the bed is very comfortable. Thank you so much for the wonderful stay!

Guests may think they are renting just a bedroom and bathroom but Hettie and Randy, the extraordinarily welcoming host couple, make available the entire downstairs of this old and expertly restored house. Guests are encouraged to use the living and dining rooms, kitchen, front porch and back deck and even the washer and dryer. The very soft bed (sofa bed) is discouraging but the pleasant house, lovely street and friendly but non-intrusive host and hostess will enhance anybody's stay in Los Angeles.

It was okay.

  • 3 of 5

Shared house with a nice older couple. Room is an okay size but there's no TV, so there's no reason for there to be a pull out couch as the bed. It is uncomfortable and loud. Very loud. Awkwardly loud. I'd recommend a real full or queen bed in there, ditch the couch, and either mount a TV or have better access to the living room without feeling awkward in someone else's home.

Aside from that they were very nice to myself and my girlfriend.

Owner's Response: When this couple departed they never told us they clogged the toilet with one of our towels after failing to flush. It was totally disgusting, and because of the chemicals in the toilet water we weren't able to salvage the towel. We also had to hire a plumber to unclog the toilet. As for their comments on the accomodations: they apparently didn't read what we offered: The downstairs was available to them. The TV has all channels and Apple TV. We told them they were free to use it. We are always upstairs. Also won is small.. No one complains about the new mattress.... To of the line. When we saw they were staying in the room we told them to enjoy the rest of the house. If they wanted their own place they should have booked a private house. The listing says room in a house with private bath. That's what it is.

Hettie and Randy are 2 of the nicest people I have met on my Home Away adventures. Their home even more beautiful in person and the neighborhood is booming with awesome stores and shops within easy walking distance. Easy parking and safe neighborhood and close to Silver Lake. Loved it. I would definitely recommend staying here.
