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.

Lora is a great host, and Booh is just adorable! She has a wonderful home and plenty of local advice for the new traveller to LA. Location is great, easy walk to Hollywood and transit options.
Lora made me feel exceptionally welcome from the second I stepped foot on her porch. She is a wonderful host, and a genuinely nice person. Her home is inviting, immaculate and centrally located (to say the least). I honestly felt like I was staying with a good friend, from the moment I got there. Lora's dog BTW, is a sweet baby girl who makes it hard not to love her! The experience far-exceeded my expectations.
Lora, Booh (the sweet old pup), and the home were amazing. Lora accommodated my urgent need with grace and generosity. She is an exceptional hostess, providing any and all information you may want or need (regarding the home and the area). She went to great extent to ensure I had what I needed and to make sure everything was sound.
Her home is very comfortable (so many luxurious pillows on the bed!) and stylish, somehow quietly nestled in Hollywood (which you imagine to be loud). The pictures are certainly accurate, so have no fear. The place is clean and beautiful.
I definitely recommend staying at Lora's. I could not have asked for a better hostess or home.
Excellent location! Relatively quiet spot away from busy Hollywood Boulevard. It walking distance to hollywood boulevard and close to the subway and busses. I mostly used Lyft to get around, but also the bus a few times, which was easy to get to. I never felt unsafe walking in the area, even at night. This place is a true home away from home and I felt like I could just relax when I was at the house. Comfortable bed, TV in the living area and bedroom, and nice sitting areas in the house. The deck in the front is an excellent spot for sitting in the evenings or mornings. Everything was clean (bathroom, bedroom, kitchen and living room) and ready when I arrived. Lora ensured that I had everything that I needed, and I felt extremely welcome.
Booh (the dog) is extremely friendly and loves to be around people.
Thank you for being so accommodating with my arrival and departure times. Overall, it was an excellent experience and I would definitely stay here again when I visit the area! Thank you!!
This is the second time I've stayed with Lora and her home was just as awesome (if not more so) than my last trip. The bedroom is spacious with as much closet space as you could ask for, a super comfy bed, couch, and tv. Lora is extremely accommodating and easy going; she truly wants you to feel at home. She let me use her DVR to record a ton of episodes of a show I love and my last night we spent hanging out on the couch binge watching with her super friendly dog, Booh. I use public transportation to get around everywhere and Lora's home is super close to several great bus lines and the red subway line. If I ever stay in LA, this is my home away from home.
