3. Request a Lyft
When you book with us, I also give you FREE access to the Members-Only section of my website which provides you with lots of information for what to do in LA, how to SEE the most and how to SAVE the most money.
The Best Place to Stay in LA:
Welcome to your "Los Angeles Hollywood Room" - a PRIVATE non-smoking room upstairs in our 5 bedroom, 3 bath house in the safe and quiet suburbs of Pico Rivera.
Your room comes furnished with 1 Queen bed and 1 Double bed plus a bedside table with a desk lamp that doubles as a spotlight. Or you can turn on the corner movie cameras (bed side lamps) and shout, "Action!"
You also have an air conditioner and heater to keep you comfortable year round.
Hollywood secret revealed: if you turn on the AC to the highest setting and stand in front of it, you can get some great shots with that wind-blowing-your-hair look.
But I digress. Back to the room. You also have a full length closet with mirrored doors. Ah, the photo shoot possibilities are endless.
Linens and towels are also provided for you plus a key to your room so you can lock it when you go out and your things will be safe and secure.
Our cozy house is located on a quiet cul de sac in a nice neighborhood. The hosts stay in one room and rent other rooms to vacationing guests. You never know who you might meet.
Get that home-away-from-home experience when you stay with us. Benefits include:
~ Free strong wireless internet throughout the house.
~ Continental breakfast is included daily. Help yourself to toast and toppings, oatmeal and cereal. And of course there is always coffee and an assortment of teas.
~ You get full run of the house and are welcome to use the kitchen, washer and dryer (soap and dryer sheets provided for you), flat panel TV in the living room, Netflix, VCR/DVD player, video and DVD library.
~ Have breakfast or get some sun on the patio.
~ Borrow our bicycles and take a ride to the riverbed. We have a bird sanctuary one mile away.
~ 24-Hour Super Walmart with grocery store is walking distance from the house. As a great money-saving tip, might we suggest that you stop in at the 24-hour Walmart and stock up on your favorite items on your way to our house. Then, stash your stuff in your designated space in the fridge or just write your name on it with the pens we provide for you. Then you are free to cook to your heart's content (we just ask that you wash any dishes you might use). This is a great way to save money and eat healthier while traveling.
~ We are located less than 5 miles away from Los Angeles County's very own Outlet Shopping Mall, "The Citadel" for the best deals and shopping experience around. Easy access by bus from our house as well.
~ It is less than 5 miles to the world famous Commerce Casino. Best known for its poker tournaments.
~ SPECIAL INVITATION ~
And last but not least, we invite you to join in a family tradition. When you stay with us you get to make a flag with your name on it for our world map. Plant your flag to represent your home town and become an official member of our international family.
If you want to bring a gift for your hosts (we love gifts!) might I suggest some beer from your country? Jaime makes his own beer every other Sunday with his friends in our garage. We'd love to try your beer and share with you some of what we believe is the best home-brewed beer in Southern California - OURS! Cheers!
We also keep a mini fridge stocked with drinks, sodas and yes, even some of our home-brew that is a self-serve fridge where we ask that if you take one, just leave a donation. The money goes to Jaime's hobby so he can make more beer. Yay!
We have hosted international students for over 10 years and love to share our native Southern California with everyone. We can provide recommendations for all of the best local attractions: Universal Studios, Hollywood, Disneyland, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Staples Center, Malibu, all of the local beaches, Rodeo Drive, the Hollywood Sign, the best shopping malls and Outlet Centers, local ski slopes, tennis courts, magnificent golf courses, and much more.
Airport pick ups and drop offs are also available for up to 5 people; $60 for the first 3 people. If a second car is needed for luggage or a 4th and 5th person, add $20. Please let us know in advance if you will need a ride.
We even offer something I like to call my "Magic Carpet Ride" service where for a flat fee you are taken on a customized private full-day tour of LA. You pick the places to see based on YOUR interests. The boundaries are Magic Mountain to the North and Orange County to the South. I will be your driver/tour- guide/designated driver at your beck and call for the flat rate of just $120. (Maximum of 4 people) Plus you benefit from my insider knowledge and get tips and tricks for how to get photos from above and behind the Hollywood sign (now that's one most people don't have), the best roof-top bars in Downtown LA, how to get a free tour of the Walt Disney Concert Hall and maybe even a discount to Universal Studios Hollywood!
We look forward to meeting you and sharing with you what makes living in Southern California in general and Los Angeles specifically, the best place on the planet.
Here's a sure-fire way to get a fast approval. When you request to stay, answer the following 4 questions:
1. What brings you to LA
2. Who will you be traveling with
3. What will you be doing while you are in town?
4. How can we help make your stay more enjoyable?
Rooms are available on a first come, first serve basis. Once you are approved to stay, click the "Book it" button to make payment by credit card and lock in your stay. You will then receive a reservation confirmation which contains the address, instructions for checking in and the link to my special Booking Bonus, "Best Things to do in LA" as a thank you for staying with us. We want your stay in LA to be the best and we look forward to hosting you.

Great hosts! Very welcoming. You will feel at home from the moment you arrive. Moreover, you will definitely enjoy taking your breakfast on their sunny terrace. The neighbourhood seems safe and calm (except for the dogs that you can hear sometimes) and while the house is a bit far from downtown LA, it is worthwhile.
Great hosts! Lovely place - clean and welcoming. Jaime and Sue are very nice and go the extra mile to make your stay fantastic. Their set up is quite amazing. Room was great, shared space was great, neighborhood is safe. Definitely recommend. Only regret is I didn't try Jaime's home brewed beer.
We really enjoyed our stay in LA. The hosts were extremely kind and it certainly felt like home! The neighboirhood is very pleasant and safe and there are many grocery stores&restaurants nearby. Would definitely recommend this place!
Awesome stay! Just felt like staying in our own house. Jamie and Sue did very great job in taking care of everything. We did not meet Sue, however we did talk with Jamie, he is kind and friendly person. Definitely recommend for all whose coming to LA. *thumbs up* hope to come back soon.
Sue and Jaime are very nice and willing to share their house with us. They are experienced to treat people who live in their house. The room is nice and bright. It has three share bathrooms in the house I think it is convenient. The house is easy to find with GPS, also it is easy to find parking space near the house. I'd like to recommend their house to my friends.

Hello! As hosts our aim is to make sure your experience in Southern California is positive and memorable for all the right reasons. Our house has been described as nice and cozy. It is quiet and private in a safe neighborhood.
We are both native Southern Californians and love to share all that this beautiful region has to offer.
My husband and I have been hosting for over 10 years. One of the fun things we like to do is have our guests put a flag on our wall map representing where their home town is.
We invite you to add your flag to the map as a member of our extended international family!
