I'm originally from London but I live in Los Angeles and am visiting NY for a few weeks for work.
A great place to stay if you're looking for a more relaxed environment when visiting LA. If you like the idea of being surrounded by more trees than people, and hearing the sounds of nature over automobiles, definitely consider this place.
If you desire constant access to your cell phone, you might want to ask first about cell phone service, but all places in the area will have this issue. Also, unless you enjoy long hikes, you'll probably want access to a car when visiting.
Easy going guest. Good communication. Great.
