The Best Place to Stay in LA:
Welcome to your Cozy Cabin in Urban Los Angeles which is a non-smoking cottage that has its own private entrance in back of our main house. For comfort, your room comes with a full-size bed, bedside lamp, a closet, a dresser and a dining area with a small table and 2 chairs.
For work, the business center comes with a desk, chair, lamp and wired internet as well as recently-upgraded strong wireless internet (wifi).
For fun, there is also a loft with 2 twin beds if you don't mind climbing up and down a ladder.
We can add an additional air bed to sleep up to 5 comfortably. (Linens and towels are also provided for you.)
Your Cozy Cabin is in the secluded backyard behind our 5 bedroom, 3 bath house, on a quiet cul de sac in a nice neighborhood. Please note that it is 10 steps to the main house where the restrooms, shared kitchen and living room are. The main house is open to you and may be shared with other guests and/or the owners. The owners live in 1 bedroom which leaves 4 bedrooms for other guests.
Get that home-away-from-home experience when you stay with us. Benefits include:
~ Free strong wireless internet throughout the house that even extends to the Cozy Cabin.
~ Continental breakfast is included daily. Help yourself to toast and toppings, oatmeal, milk and cereal. And of course there is always fresh-brewed 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 less than a 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.
~ Citadel Outlet Mall - 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. There is also easy access by bus from our house as well.
~ Commerce Casino - 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 refrigerator 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 each way. 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 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 am your driver/tour guide/designated driver at your beck and call for the whole day for just $120. Plus you benefit from my insider knowledge and get tips and tricks for 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 these 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?

The cabin was great! Jaime was so friendly and helpful. He made us feel like we were home. Would definitely stay here again.
Vi havde en god tid i Sue og Jaimes Cabin. Hytten var som forventet rigtig fin, ren, hyggelig og privat- dejlig sted at bo i.
Sue og Jaime var meget venlige og hjælpsomme - super værter.
Jaime laver sine egne øl, som iøvrigt smager rigtig godt.
Der var fin adgang til køkken, toilet og tv.
Hvis vi skal anbefale stedet til andre, så vil vi mene at værterne kunne være mere opmærksomme på at holde det renligt og velduftende i fælles området.
Men alt i alt et super sted, med hurtig adgang til freeway og indkøbsmuligheder, samt parkering og internet.
Sue and Jamie are excellent hosts who go out of their way to make sure their guests have an enjoyable and stress free stay in LA with so much helpful advice and information about the city as well as extra services available e.g. bus station pick up. They were half host and half tour guide, whether you are there to shop, sight see, etc. They also provided a lovely breakfast. Three of us were more than comfortable in the cabin. Thanks sue and jaime :)
Sue and Jaime were wondeful hosts. They were very welcoming and helpful it all aspects of my stay. They have unlimited information about everything you ever need to know and are more than happy to share their insights. Wonderful hosts, I would definitely recommend and definitely consider staying here again on my next trip.
I like to stay in Sue and Jaime's wood cabin. It was comfortable and interesting. Both of them were kind and nice. The breakfast was perfect and they provided many utilities. Thanks and I would like to stay there again.
Ich war für 5 Tage bei Sue und Jamie und es war sehr schön,Sie sind sehr aufmerksam und die Cozy Cabin war genau richtig für mich -)) für 1 Person super du hast deine Ruhe für 2 Personen denke ich ist es ein wenig eng ... Also ich würde jederzeit wiederkommen und habe die Zeit genossen...
Toller Aufenthalt im kleinen Häuschen von Sue und Jaimie! Beide waren tolle Gastgeber und halfen mit vielen nützlichen Informationen. Es ist sauber, gemütlich und man hat alles was man braucht...einer toller Ort für Reisende aus der ganzen Welt! Gerne wieder!

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!
