I’m inviting guests to spend a weekend in my hometown to experience the culture, businesses and communities that influence my storytelling on screen. I can’t wait to show guests all the things that make Black LA so special firsthand.

Booking opens at 10 a.m. PT on Tuesday, February 8 for one stay on February 12-14 for $56 a night.

*This one-time stay is not a contest. Guests are responsible for their own travel to and from Los Angeles.

The space
Guests will have the opportunity to explore some of my favorite landmarks in neighborhoods like Leimert Park, View Park, Inglewood and Baldwin Hills and experience their own “me season” during their weekend at my South LA pad. Plus, I’ve curated plenty of activities for your stay, so you can see LA, my way, including:
- A virtual chat with me (yes, you heard that right!) at check-in
- A catered “Game Day” dinner for two, courtesy of Worldwide Tacos
Panoramic views of Los Angeles and the Hollywood Hills from the outdoor lounge
- A stylish mid-century View Park pad decked out with artwork by local Black artists such as Maya Iman, Vakseen, and Domonique Brown.
- Getting to know my favorite local spots via my personal guidebook, including Eso Won Books, My 2 Cents, Supervsn Studios, Gorilla Rx Wellness, Swift Cafe, ALL CHILL and Southern Girl Desserts and special touches in the home - like a Hilltop Coffee nook.
- Pampering yourself with Sienna Naturals hair care (that you can take home!) for a little Self Care Sunday, any day.
- Wine-ing down after a day of exploring South LA - don’t forget to stop by some of the iconic landmarks you might recognize from your favorite episodes
- Basking in the LA winter and relaxing by the pool - complete with chaise lounges and canopies (only the best for my guests!)

Where you’ll be

Los Angeles, California, United States

Los Angeles has so many unique neighborhoods, but I have a soft spot for South LA. It’s exciting to see the neighborhood get the attention it deserves as everyone prepares for football’s favorite Sunday. From Leimert Park or View Park to Inglewood and Baldwin Hills, you’ll quickly learn why South LA is home to some of the city’s best, if lesser known, food, art, creativity and culture.

Hey, I’m Issa Rae, a proud South LA native. The streets, sights and sounds of my hometown have long been a main character in my creative work. You may have heard that I’m rooting for everybody Black - and this mission is inspired by my LA community. During this epic weekend, I hope you come to appreciate my community’s rich history and its many contributions to LA.
