Interaction with Guests
If you want complete privacy, we won't bother you - you come and go as you please like a hotel.
However, we love to meet people and offer suggestions as to how to have an authentic L.A. experience if asked.
And if we have time, we might invite you to go for a walk in the Hollywood Hills or at the Museum garden or accompany us to Happy Hour on La Brea Bl.
La Brea is the main blvd. down the block. It has famous restaurants, a famous bakery, several friendly bars, exercise studios, boutiques and LOTS of unique shopping if you want a feel of a popular street in the city .
From here you can easily visit all the places you want to see: Drive to the top of La Brea and you are at the Walk of Fame. Venice and Santa Monica Beaches, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Downtown and the Convention Center, Universal Studios, Museum Row, Restaurant Row, the Grove, Melrose Ave, Griffith Park Observatory, the Getty Center, Cedars-Sinai Hospital are all within easy reach of our home. We are midway between USC & UCLA.
Disneyland is a 45 minute drive by car. The airport is about a 25 minute drive.
Once you have made your reservation I will send you an email of interesting things about LA and things you might want to check out.
(If I forget, ask me for it!)
Also there is a collection of books about LA for you to use, plus our own helpful suggestions regarding the city.
L.A. is an ENORMOUS city and with a car you will be able to do much more because it will be twice as fast as a bus.
However, YES, L.A. has a bus system and there are buses on each of our corners. One bus will take you up to Hollywood. Another will take you to the beach and another will take you to downtown. So it is possible to travel by bus and see the city.
Other Things to Note
*Your children also count as guests, We make breakfast for them too, and provide beds and linens for them - toys and books too.
*Your nightly rate INCLUDES the 14% Los Angeles Hotel tax (Transient Occupancy Tax) which the city requires all guests in L.A to pay. We send it to the city as required by law every month.
Please park in our driveway; we have reserved this space for you! We prefer not to have guests walking up and down the street with suitcases - this is a residential street. Our house is light green with a RED door. Just pull your car into the driveway beside the house.
* Please do NOT eat in the bedroom. We welcome you to sit in our kitchen or dining room whenever you want to eat something.
* Please ask me to wash your clothes, do not wash clothes in the bathroom.
Bei unserer Ankunft haben wir dank der guten Beschreibung (grünes Haus mit roter Tür) sofort das richtige Haus gefunden. Wir wurden sehr herzlich empfangen und fühlten uns von Anfang an sehr wohl. Zur Begrüßung haben wir einen Orangensaft auf dem wunderschönen Balkon (Siehe Bilder) getrunken. Das Schlafzimmer ist wirklich riesig und direkt nebenan gibt es ein separates Badezimmer. Die Gastgeber stellten Handtücher, Shampoo, Duschgel, Sonnencreme, Bodylotion usw zur Verfügung. Alles entsprach den Bildern, die Beschreibung von Mic und Leah trifft zu 100% zu. Nein eigentlich wurden unsere Erwartungen in allen Punkten übertroffen! Auch bei der Planung unserer Aktivitäten half uns Leah stets sehr gerne, sie konnte uns hierdurch sehr viele Insider-Tipps und Anregungen geben. Das Frühstück war sehr gut und es gab sehr viel Auswahl (Brot, Müsli, Kaffee, Joghurt, Orangensaft, Rührei, Marmelade, Erdnussbutter, Schokoladenkuchen, Erdbeeren...). Die Unterkunft ist wirklich sehr sauber und man fühlt sich wie zuhause. Leah und Mic waren sehr gastfreundlich und abends sassen wir zusammen und tranken gemeinsam Bier. Bevor unsere Reise weiterging, war Leah so nett und hat unsere Kleidung gewaschen und getrocknet, was als Backpacker sehr hilfreich ist. Auch die beiden Hunde Blackjack and Miss Penny) waren sehr aufgeschlossen und nett gegenüber Fremden. Wenn wir das nächste mal in L.A. sein sollten führt an diesem Haus mitten im Sonnenparadies Kaliforniens kein Weg vorbei, eine absolute Empfehlung da man sich kaum eine erfahrenere und nettere AirBnB Familie vorstellen kann!
Leeah and her husband Mic are fabulous hosts. Staying with then has been so great! It's like my home away from home. They made my trip in LA! Since i work in hospitality industry and i pay much attention to details and kind of picky. But there is nothing to be picky about! the room they provide, clean, spacious, and comfortable! This neighborhood was also extremely safe, walkable and conveniently located. And most important, the hosts are fantastic . Leeah always goes out of her way to make me feel home! She and her husband took me out for a nice breakfast in Farmer's market, and showed me around the place! And Leeah offered to pick me up when I finished my shopping at farmer's place! Incredibly Leech brought me nice cupcakes! What a sweet host! Also Leeah is very helpful providing local info and recommend me to Observatory to see the night view of LA, which turned out such an incredible night!
Thanks so much for everything Leeah and Mic! I would definitely stay here again.
Very nice and clean room as described! Far beyond my expectation! Strong recommend! Leeah and Mic are very friendly. I love the family!
We had a great experience at Mic and Leeah's wonderful home in the perfect location in LA! Their home was central to both Venice Beach and only a couple minutes from our concert venue at the Wiltern Theater. We were welcomed by Leeah at the door and she showed us the lovely room with a cute outdoor patio area! The room comfortably fit 4 of us girls and the bathroom was stocked with everything we possibly needed for our stay. We woke up this morning to fresh, hot coffee and bagels. It was such an adorable set up! We had wonderful conversation with Mic and were on our way after breakfast. Would definitely love to stay here again if we ever make it out to LA soon!
Me and my wife stayed with Leeah and Mic in their beautiful house for 4 nights. Their attention to details was extraordinary. We arrived very late at night, they gave us a warm welcome. I immediately felt comfortable.
The room was huge, super clean with super comfortable beds and pillows. The bathroom was clean and complete with all the amenities one could need.
Amazing breakfast was served every morning, they made us scrambled and fried eggs, all you have to do is ask.
Their location is very safe and central, close to everything. We parked our car everyday in the drive way so parking was not an issue.
I left my cell phone in their house the day we checked out and just realize it when we were already at the airport, I was so worried but then I called Leeah, she promptly understands my problem and took action. Just a few hours after our conversation, she sent me a tracking number which she had sent the cell phone to my hotel in San Francisco. Leeah didnt even want me to pay for the shipping cost!
Thank you Leeah and Mic for letting us had an amazing stay in your beautiful home. Your kindness and hospitality was superb and exceptional!
Best regards from us,
Tiodo and Pitta
