Julio was wonderful! As soon as we arrived he got us oriented to nearby conveniences, transit, and entertainment. He made sure we were settled in to his wonderful, comfortable Little House. It was particularly nice, as we had a long stay, to have a kitchen already stocked with pots and pans. Julio and his Little House made us feel very welcome in Los Angeles.
We would like to thank Julio and his wife for everything what they have done for us, especially for their warm welcome. We arrived late afternoon after a long trip and his wife (apology for forgetting her name) for letting me use her washing machine and the tumble dryer.
We spent 5 nights in the little house and we enjoyed it very much.
The little house was perfect for my week stay in LA. The house is on a quiet, beautiful street that is close enough to the freeway, making it easy to get around the city. Julio was so warm and welcoming. I arrived earlier then the check in time but he made sure the house was ready. The backyard is it's own little oasis with the lemon tree. I will definitely stay again next time I am in LA! Thanks for a great week, Julio!
Julio was a great host, welcoming us as we arrived and ensured we had everything we needed. I really will be staying here again next time I visit.
Room was nice and just the right size for us (me my wife and baby).
The Little House is absolutely wonderful. Located in Julio's walled backyard, it gives the impression of an almost private courtyard outside a small cabin. The yard is decorated with a beautiful rose bush and a lemon tree (which Julio generously allows guests to harvest at will). The studio is fully furnished with a small kitchen (refrigerator, microwave, stove, coffee-maker, tea kettle, various dishes) and a small, clean bathroom.
The place is really cozy abd Julio is a great host. He was really warm and welcoming. I would definitely stay at his little house again.
Great location and has everything we needed. Julio was helpful in getting us settled and familiar with the area. It was a convenient spot for us, who had a car, to get everywhere we needed within good time. I even made some lemonade with the lemons from his tree!
