We have owned our home in LA for 17 years. We love to travel and love to meet people. We are very happy to share our home.
I have Airbnb'd across the country and this stay was by far my favorite. Lauri and Wyatt's home is indeed conveniently located and charming! I stayed there for 7 days over the Holiday from (phone number hidden) with my mother. Here's some proof of how great this place is:
-The pictures don't do this place justice. It's a vintage LA home tastefully redone with classic furnishings and modern appliances. The kitchen had more than adequate cookware and spices...and the sink alone is a great example of just one of the subtle niceties of this place. The dining room has room for 6 by the way.
-There's technically room for 4 people to sleep (3 separate rooms, 1 with a bed, the other 2 with futons), but since this is quiet and close knit neighborhood I would say this is a PERFECT spot for a couple looking to explore LA or families looking for a safe and comfortable getaway. We all love a good party, but this place is a sanctuary... so if you're looking for a multi-person crash pad to rage I would recommend looking elsewhere.
Lauri and Wyatt stay in the separate back house and are excellent hosts...we met once during our stay but otherwise they provide you plenty of privacy and you feel like it's your own home. They were super nice though making sure you have everything you need during your stay. They checked us up on and made themselves available in the event we needed something (even a hair dryer when we forgot one!).
-The big flat screen and Vizio sound bar with surround sound was awesome and made entertaining my mom easy peasy. Tons of channels too. The piano was also fun to play.
-The house is indeed close to anything you could want. Within a 5 minute walk is a Ralph's, Fresh & Easy, Radio Shack, Yogurtland, Liquore Store, Round Table Pizza....I could go on. If you hop in the car you're a 5 minute drive from NoHo theater and arts district, Burbank Town Center, and freeways. This place was like a central hub to everything. It was so awesome to walk and go grocery shopping, then pick up some headphones for my mom in the same trip. Did I mention I walked to get there!?
I'll definitely be back when I visit again. Thanks again Lauri and Wyatt for home away from home!!
This was our first time ever renting a house from anyone and I have to say, it was a great experience and I would totally do it again if everybody was like Lauri. She was attentive, accommodating, and at the same time, respected our privacy. I loved that we were able to communicate via text during our stay. It was very convenient and it made Lauri very accessible. Her home was charming, cozy, and clean. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. I would highly recommend staying here.
We needed a rental places for 3 people originally, but we ended up with 4 and this was no problem for Lauri. She was extremely accommodating, friendly and helpful. Communication was clear and easy. She has a very charming house in a nice neighbourhood. We felt very safe and secure there. It was conveniently located near some great restaurants and shopping areas. The freeway was also only a hop skip and a jump from her lovely home. Just a terrific experience and I would highly recommend. Thanks Lauri & Wyatt! The best!
I've stayed with Lauri and Wyatt a few times during my visits to LA. Lauri is so helpful with giving advice about local spots and must sees! Their location has always worked out well for me, and their house is adorable. I would definitely recommend staying here.
We found out about Lauri's home through a friend when my family and I needed short-term housing in the LA area. Lauri and Wyatt are great hosts! They live in the back house on the property so they are close by for questions and help, but they were very conscientious about not disturbing us. Very knowledgeable about the area, helpful with any problems that arose and generally warm and inviting folks. My kids are a little rambunctious and Lauri and Wyatt were friendly and inviting to them. Their home is in a great location, is in very good condition and is in a nice, quiet neighborhood. We stayed for 8 weeks and felt comfortable and at home.
