We are Hector & Elyse. I, Elyse, was born and raised in Los Angeles. As a native Californian, I am happy to share all kinds of information about our city and state from a local's perspective. Hector, originally born in Cuba and raised in Miami, is a semi-retired environmental engineer and I am a retired bilingual teacher. We both speak Spanish fluently and I studied French and Italian at the university. We are passionate about travel, having visited 35 countries on 6 continents. We feel it's important for our guests to have a safe, clean and comfortable home away from home from which to explore all the wonderful and interesting adventures our city has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you to L.A.
