WELCOME TO HOLLYWOOD!!! -- HIP HOLLYWOOD HOME TO SHARE
Please note: if you are interested in booking the room, id like to get to know you a little first so when I see your profile id like to see some pictures and something that helps me get to know you. Id like for us to correspond a bit to see what your needs are, your plans for LA and any questions you may have. In other words, I’d really like to know something about you before I accept a reservation. I look forward to meeting you!
Once you book the space, PLEASE provide me with your flight details, especially if coming from out of the country - this helps me plan my schedule in order to be home to check you in. Oftentimes, there is no way to communicate once you land and if your flight is delayed, I would like to know. Please do supply your flight information once you know it. Thanks!

THE HOST is me, Lora! I am a realtor, freelance photographer, dog walker who works away from home most of the day and at home for a few hours as well. I have a dog, The Booh, who is the most important thing in the world to me. I have an active social life but also really enjoy spending time at home. I like to cook, I am a vegetarian, I love wine and I travel as often as I can.
Guests will have access to the rest of the house, the front and back yards, the casita with a treadmill, the driveway, washer and dryer, full kitchen, wifi, full cable tv.
Interaction with Guests
depends on the vibe. I tend to leave people alone unless they want to engage. I am happy to hang out and chat but do have my own work and social life going on.
I love that my neighborhood is in the very heart of Hollywood. I can walk to yoga, restaurants, grocery, retail and entertainment. Blocks away from Hollywood Boulevard, Arclight Cinema, public transit, Hollywood and Highland shopping and sight seeing and much much more.
Yes, my house is walkable to bus lines, metro and multiple car services such as cabs, UBER, Lyft, etc. It is very easy to get around from the heart of Hollywood, either on foot or via public transport of various kinds.
Other Things to Note

Staying at Lora's was great.
Private, pleasant and friendly.
Lora is helpful and a super nice host. I'll be back if Lora's not fully booked.
Lora was a pleasure to deal with - so welcoming and easy going! The house is charming and comfortable - and well located. Will finitely be a returning customer should I ever visit LA again.
It is my first experience with Airbnb, and it is a terrific one: Cozy house, clean bed, lovely garden, and It makes me feel like staying in my house because Lora shared so much space with me.
AND!!!Booh( The dog) is a very good girl, she is so nice to me, I never keep any pet but after seeing Booh, I am thinking to keep on for me and my daughter in China.
If I will come back to LA for the hollywood life again, Lora's place is the best choice, it is very closed to everything.
Thx Lora for your assistance. And please forgive me that my English is not perfect to express my feeling for this wonderful trip. See you next time dear Lora.
I'm so happy I got a chance to meet Lora and stay in her home. She made me feel welcomed right away. I booked last minute and wasn't able to check in until late at night. Lora was extremely accommodating. Her home should be featured for it's beautiful decor and personality!! I felt so comfortable and energized from my stay. Lora was very open and friendly, shared about her time living in LA, and gave me tips on some of her favorite spots in the neighborhood. Best experience yet on airbnb!!
Had a great stay in Lora (and Booh's) house which was both immaculate and comfortable. Lora was very helpful providing great recommendations of places to eat and visit whilst I became familiar with the area. I also forgot my phone charger when I moved out and Lora made sure that I was able to come back and get it at my convenience. All in all a great stay!
Lora and Boo where both so friendly and welcoming, Lora was the perfect host, providing suggestions and advise in addition to sharing her relaxed and comforting home from home. Highly recommend!!!
Lora and Booh are the perfect hosts! When Lora wasn't around, Booh kept up the great company. Couldn't have asked for a more personable and enjoyable stay! Home away from home! I'd stay there again in a heartbeat!
Miss you guys already!
