Interaction with Guests
I like to communicate clearly with my guests when setting up their stay, so my guests know what to expect, and I know what their expectations are! Once you've arrived, I am available by phone for calls or texts between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m., unless there is an emergency, then call when necessary. We are ready to fix problems in the apartment if they arise, and are willing to provide neighborhood guidance if asked. Otherwise, we practice "hands-off" hosting.
Eagle Rock is a gem. Our neighborhood is in a section that has some of the oldest and most interesting homes and many lovely front gardens. Walking the neighborhood is a joy.
Experience the wealth of interesting, independent and reasonably priced restaurants in the immediate area! Groceries are close by with the neighborhood Trader Joe's and the Organix market within walking distance. There is also a small mall less than 2 miles away anchored by a Target and a Macy's.
A short two block walk from the apartment takes you to Colorado Blvd. Bus lines from there reach all over the L.A. area and connect to the light rail system.
Many of the major freeways are easy to get to from Eagle Rock, facilitating efficient travel in exciting, diverse and sprawling Los Angeles county.

Erika is an incredible host! She met us and gave us a tour of the apartment, making herself available if we had any questions or concerns. The apartment is exactly as it appears, perhaps more spacious actually. It is very comfortable. The neighborhood is wonderful, and the apartment is an easy walk to many good restaurants, cute shops, yoga studio, Trader Joes, etc. Our experience was wonderful, and we would stay here again!
The Casita is so comfortable and exceptionally clean! Everything about it is great! Thank you again, Erika, for making our stay in your area so very enjoyable! We look forward to coming back again soon!
The description was accurate. Eric was very helpful and welcoming. She provided a few breakfast items to get us started. We really liked the unit and felt it met all of our needs. We enjoyed our morning walks in the neighborhood. We have a daughter living nearby so we expect to returning to this area. We have already booked some time with Eric this coming fall.
Highly recommend! Erika's place is so warm, clean and cozy, and the lighting is beautiful, especially in the morning. Erika herself and her husband are very welcoming and hospitable-- always communicative and available but also conscientious of our privacy. The location is also amazing! Parking was a breeze, and the house is within walking distance to a ton of awesome bars, restaurants etc. Stayed only for a weekend, but would definitely come back to stay for a longer period. Can't beat the price either. Thanks again for everything, Erika!
Erika is an amazing host! I was very comfortable in the Casita; it was exactly as it appeared and in a lovely neighborhood. For walking, access to shops and restaurants.
My daughter, son-in law and grandbaby live close by and I have been hoping to find a place to stay when I visit. This is it!
Me and my girlfriend loved staying at the Casita. It felt like a home away from home and Erica was fantastic, incredibly friendly and always on hand to help if needed! The apartment was beautiful, just like its pictures, and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay in Eagle Rock.
This is most likely the best place to stay on this site. You can walk in this house with nothing and all the amenities are there. The property is completely separated from the house so you are free to come and go at your leisure. Very private location in a great neighborhood with so many great places to eat within walking distance that you're guaranteed to gain a few pounds on your stay. Erika is an amazing, genuine person, gracious host and in guaranteed to stay at this wonderful place in the future.
I'm an almost life long Southern Californian (minus 3 months) and have lived in vibrant and diverse Northeast L.A. for most of my adult life. I've returned to school to re-tool my education for a career change - and I'm having fun with that! My wonderful husband Josh and I will celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary this Spring. I make time to goof off with my friends, and figure out new and interesting ways to feed my allergic family members! I edit crime fiction, love movies, reading historical fiction, and traveling. Most of my recent travel is connected to my husband's growing career as a novelist, but my favorite places to go are remote and rugged areas of Scotland.
