When you book with us, I also give you 2 Booking Bonuses:
1. A discount on your car rental from Hertz and 2. 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 Cozy Cabin in Urban Los Angeles which is a non-smoking cottage that has its own private entrance in back of our main house: a tiny house for you to enjoy.
For comfort, your room comes with a double bed, bedside lamp, a closet, a heater, an air conditioner 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 twin floor mattress in the bedroom downstairs 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 3 restrooms, shared kitchen and living room are. The main house is always 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.
~Of course there is always fresh-brewed coffee and an assortment of teas.
~ You get full run of the house and are welcome to cook in the kitchen, use the washer and dryer (soap and dryer sheets provided for you), watch television on the 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.
~ 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 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. The Bicycle Casino and Hawaiian Gardens Casino are also less than 10 miles away. A veritable poker player's paradise!
~ 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 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 $160. 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. Where will you be coming from?
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?
