Guests have access to Living Room, Dining Room, Laundry Room ( supplies are included), Kitchen, Outside Patios and Yard.

Interaction with Guests

We enjoy meeting our guests and getting to know where they are from, but we are also respectful of your privacy and busy schedule.

The Neighborhood

We are located in a very quite and safe neighborhood nestled up against the Whittier Hills,
with plenty of free parking. There are nature trails for hiking and biking just down the street. The Historic District of Uptown Whittier with restaurants, coffee houses, shopping and Whittier College is just a short walk away.

Getting around

Freeway access is a easy few minutes away from the house. You can walk to the Metro Bus Line , which will connect you to the Metro Rail Lines. Just a note: LA is a very large city and it is still best to travel by car if you want to see all the tourist sites.

  • Dealing with family is great. The room is spacious, clean and the terrace is ideal to be in the evenings. The neighborhood is quiet, and access to highways is fast.
    Bill and Carrie help you in all matters to consult them and provide you with detailed information on the areas you want to visit.
    The kitchen and breakfast area are also very spacious and have everything you want for breakfast.
    The house dogs are also very patient and friendly.
    If we return to LA we stay in this house again.
    Fully recommended to all

  • Bill welcomed us into his lovely, clean and spacious well decorated home. He offered to carry our luggage up into the room we rented. Bill asked us about our prior visits during the day and seemed very interested in our visits to the museums and to the Hsi Lai Temple. He was very sociable and we discussed San Diego and LA. He gave us important advice about traveling through the traffic in LA.

    The room was just as it was described. It was clean,.well decorated and noise insulated from the rest of the house. It had a fan and extra blankets.The beds were clean and comfortable. The bathroom was clean and we were shown where the towels were. We were shown where the breakfast items were and encouraged to help ourselves. It was nice being able to open our bedroom door out onto a private patio.

    My 2 friends and I had a wonderful place to stay in your home! Thank you!

  • Bill and Carrie's private vacation rental in L.A. was perfect! I was graduating with my Master's and need a place for my mom and friend to stay. This rental is located in my favorite area of Whittier, close to the hills and close to uptown Whittier. Bill and Carrie were very welcoming and the other guests who were staying in the house were absolutely lovely. The room was spacious and the patio was a treat. This is a very safe and quiet neighborhood with easy access to the freeways. I will definitely keep Bill and Carrie's place in mind for future visits from my friends and family.

    May 2014
  • Bill and Carrie are really nice people. They gave us a lot of suggestion and told us where to go and some tips for traveling in LA.

  • Great two-night stay over New Year's Eve. Loved the private patio area where we welcomed the New Year with our daughter and boyfriend. Private bath with this room was very nice. Bill and Carrie were lovely hosts. They provided kitchen access and continental breakfast; we had plenty of room in their large home. Would visit again.

  • A warm welcome by a lovely couple to their beautiful home. The accommodations were perfectly suited to our needs. In particular, we enjoyed the lovely terrace outside of the room and the close proximity to Whittier College.

    Bill and Carrie were very helpful and provide a very open house. As a guest, you can use the kitchen and the living room if you want to relax. We look forward to returning on my next trip to Whittier.

    Many thanks!!
