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.
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.
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.
Other Things to Note
We truly enjoy meeting people from across the United States and around the world. We look forward to hosting you !
No smoking, no drugs (including medical marijuana). Other than that, feel free to relax and enjoy.
Very nice accommodations, clean, classy and quiet. Bill is a great host. We hope to stay here again when visiting Whittier!
The room is good, bill and Carrie are very enthusiastic to entertain us, thank you very much!
Bill and Carrie make it easy to want to stay here again. Shortly after getting into LA, Bill called me and said his son would be there to show us our room, etc. The room/bathroom/private patio is adorable and extremely clean. I love clean and this home is about clean. They really care about their guests as every path is lit up and decorated with potted plants. Bill is extremely friendly and if you stay here, you will find yourself having many conversations with him. The Whittier community is peaceful and we found many good eats downtown. We especially loved waking up to a slight breeze and sitting on the patio enjoying the peace and quiet. We were here for a volleyball tournament in LA, but we visited the Memorial Rose Gardens-which included a Buddhist Temple and World War II Japanese survivors.
Great stay, beautiful historic area and extremely nice people who care about their home. Thanks Bill and Carrie!
Bill and Carrie have a beautiful, spacious house with a lovely yard in a quiet part of Whittier. Our room was perfect for us!! Two comfortable beds for my daughter and myself, fans in case it got too hot at night (it didn't), a closet for our belongings, plus a large bathroom right next door! And, maybe best of all, a sweet private patio and seating area right outside our bedroom door with private entrance to and from our room.
Bill and Carrie were very welcoming and accommodating; answering any questions right away that I had before our stay, offering us full use of the kitchen and living area, and providing a good range of breakfast foods before we headed out for the day. While very friendly, Bill and Carrie also allowed us plenty of privacy during our stay.
This was a very convenient location for visiting the college. We definitely hope to stay here again next time we're in Whittier!!
