This was my first airbnb admittedly, but I can't imagine it going better. Rosa was an amazing host and we had a comfortable stay. Plus, where else can you find a goat and chicken run in silver lake?
Rosa and her crew along with her baby Benjamin where all very welcoming. Rosa made sure our stay was comfortable and went out of her way to ensure this. We were very busy exploring LA and the location of her home is great and close to everything since it's so central. She has a lot of projects in mind for her place and I imagine it will only get better
This was a great location. We had a great time! Host was amazing!!
Rosa is a wonderful hostess and fascinating person. We stayed in the kitchen/living room unit with round bed (loved it). We didn't hear the dogs or rooster but enjoyed tour of the chickens and sheep, and appreciated the warm, flexible welcome that our dog got. Location is fantastic. Glad I read other reviews to be ready to be flexible for a commune-type experience. We got the privacy we needed and Rosa was sensitive to that. Adorable place, great breeze, lovely get away. thanks, Rosa!
Rosa and other people I met during my stay with her were so friendly, and my stay was so enjoyable because of it. Rosa was quick to help remedy some initial confusion, and I really could have not asked for a sweeter host for my first Airbnb stay. (Although I've hosted numerous guests, this was my first time being on the other end of the experience!) Rosa has a great vision for the property, so it was a very lively place with people working on various projects.
The neighborhood is beautiful, and easily walkable to Silver Lake Reservoir, and to several great restaurants and a coffee shop.
If you want a truly unique city experience, this is the place to be, and I definitely want to keep in touch with Rosa!
Such a wonderful and adventurous place to stay. Rosa was ready to accommodate our every need and took such good care of us. Fresh eggs, fresh honey, FULL kitchen, lots of room to stretch out!
Rosa is surely the hostess with every idea/plan/etc. and then some. She GOES OUT OF HER way to make you feel welcome into her home and you become part of the family while you are there while your privacy is fully respected.
The space is something out of a magical fairytale - it doesn't seem like it should even EXIST and, yet, it does in every sense of the word. You MUST be one to roll with the day-to-day and those looking for a hotel experience would not be happy but if you want to sit back with a nice cup of coffee or glass of wine among interesting and beautiful souls, STAY HERE.
The City Farm is REAL and a crazy and wonderful EXPERIENCE and I would come back again and again. Plus, you will leave with fun stories that will last a lifetime. Oh, and take photos, your friends will not believe you.
Oh, and sit (or swing in the hammock) on the deck with a glass of wine at dawn or dusk and you will feel like you are in the Mediterranean - Greece or Italy...ahhh, bliss.
This is truly like going into another, unexpected world. Rosa and her extended family of beautiful baby Benjamin, shepherd, and crew, were present and infinitely willing to accommodate myself and my nine year old daughter lucy. While in the midst of construction and elaboration, the space felt clean and cared for. Rosa has a vision.
And then, of course, there was the hot tub...ahhhhh...the chickens, Lucy couldn't put them down...and the flock of sheep. Yes. flock of sheep. I woke to the sound of the rooster and the baaaing of the sheep. Which for me was a joy.
So. If you want something that's definitely different and feels a little like a mixture between, Mexico and Turkey and who knows where else, make the city farm a stopping place on your journey.
Oh - and be SURE to buy some of Rosa's honey - it is like GOLD!
Staying at Rosa's urban farm was an incredibly unique experience. The guest house was very clean, had a great patio with view of the reservoir, and the vibe was casual and communal. While there were unforeseen hiccups during my stay, they were remedied quickly. The fresh eggs available were delicious! Seeing the farm in the urban setting was really cool, and it will serve the community in a unique way (ask about it). The guest house has a couple other separate rooms with separate entrances, and while the soundproofing wasn't 100% complete during my stay there, I got to hear original music being composed! The reservoir is a stone's throw away, as well as a public library and grocery store. The host, Rosa, was wonderful to chat with, and even had a chance to eat authentic Mexican food with her. Her son was the happiest baby I'd ever seen! I'd recommend staying here if you want a different type of stay in LA. Be aware that there is a rooster that will crow in the morning, as that's a given on a farm. The place is best for those who are laid-back and can go with the flow.
