Interaction with Guests

We enjoy meeting our guests and getting to know where the 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. 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 Line. Just a note: LA is a very large city and the best way to get around to see all the tourist sites is still by car.

  • Bill and Carrie live in a wonderful place in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood, app. 30 min from downtown LA, where you will find plenty of restaurants, bars, cinema. The room is just perfect and Bill and Carrie make sure that you are comfortable. The bathroom is nice too. They are a kind couple and we had interesting discussion about LA, about California, our world trip and even about water supply. If we come back to LA. we will call them for sure ! :)

  • My boyfriend and I stayed in the Los Angeles room for two nights and were very satisfied.
    Bill and Carrie's house is welcoming and comfortable. They have put a lot of work into their home and the love really shows! The grounds are beautiful. There are many doors and stairways that take you to and from your room easily. Also the outdoor lounge areas are lovely and their cat was friendly enough to join me for breakfast!
    Bill was very easy going with loads of advise for traveling in the area.
    Will definitely stay again when traveling to Whittier.

  • Bill and Carrie's place was wonderful. It provided us, my sister and I, a home away from home. The room was most comfortable, airy and quiet. Bill and Carrie were very accommodating, provided us with fresh fruits, daily, and healthier breakfast choices and we were able to eat in as our health require. It's such lovely and pleasent house to be in. We, my sister and I, enjoyed our stay
    We would highly recommend. Two thumbs up!

  • It was a comfortable room, and our host Bill was very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for our needs - visiting our son whose nearby apartment is too small to host his parents.

  • My husband and I had a very comfortable stay at Bill and Carrie's. The room looked exactly as it did in the pictures. They were there to meet us when we arrived, and told us about a cute downtown area where there were many restaurants for us to choose from. We would recommend.

  • We enjoyed or stay. The room was light and airy and we loved the deck in the morning. The room is right next to the bathroom, convenient!

  • My stay of three nights was really pleasant and everything was according to the description. Whittier as location is really peaceful and served my needs perfectly. I travelled by car and was able to access roads to LA and Anaheim. Being between those two this place is a good stop for hockey tourism :) Thanks to Bill and Carrie for hosting me.
