The neighboring cities are Monterey Park, Alhambra and El Sereno. You'll enjoy my place because of the location and you will feel right at home and there is plenty of closet space. What is depicted on the pictures is exactly where you will be staying. Guest AccessYou will have private access the whole apartment. This is a legal duplex that is divided by a center wall. If you look at the lay-out, you will see what I mean. My family and I live in the grey area. If you happen to need anything my family or I are ready to assist you with any questions or concerns. You will also have access to our laundry room which is located in the basement; however, laundry detergent is not included. Washer and dryer are very clean and in perfect working condition; please keep them that way. Interaction with GuestsAs a traveler, I can relate to your needs and expectations and this is why I decided to turn my rental into an AirBnB getaway. Please follow the house rules so I can keep the rates low. My goal is to make your stay as smooth and enjoyable as possible. The NeighborhoodMy neighborhood boarders Monterey Park, Alhambra and El Sereno. Walking distance to McDonald, Burger King, bus stops and gas stations. 3 miles away from shopping centers/markets, close to DTLA and many attractions.

For easier search of locations that you are interested in visiting, my zip is 90063, that way you can use a maps app to check the distance of any destination. If you are using a car, parking will be on the street. Please note the parking signs. It is mainly no street parking for street sweeping on Monday mornings across the street and on my side on Tuesday morning. Other Things to NoteThe queen size bed is brand new; it was purchased November 2016. It's firm and has a bed bug/stains protector that must be kept on at all time; unless, it is taken out to be washed; but, it has to be put back on as soon as it is washed. I will not be charging a cleaning fee; however, the apartment must be left as it was found when checking out; if not, I will be charging $150 from the deposit to hire a house keeper to clean it. All cleaning supplies needed to keep up the apartment is available. Mostly everything is new (pots, mattress, sheets, etc...). I will not be accepting request to book from guests that have not been verified or do not have any reviews or have less than 3 reviews. Booking for someone else is not allowed. No locals can reserve, as this is primarily for travelers or students from other state or country. The name on AirBnB files has to match your ID or passport with your plane ticket; otherwise, check in will not be allowed. No exceptions.
