The SpaceWe're celebrating our 1,000th Positive Airbnb Review by giving everyone $15 off their first ride with Uber, which is a new sharing economy "taxi" service that is more like your friend with a car. Here's what you do:
1. Download the Uber App
2. Create an account
3. Enter the code "jaimeh442ue" when you request your first ride.
When you book with us, I also give you 2 Booking Bonuses:
1. A discount on your car rental from Hertz and 2. FREE access to the Members-Only section of my website which provides you with lots of information for what to do in LA, how to SEE the most and how to SAVE the most money.
The Best Place to Stay in LA:
Welcome to your private Bed and Breakfast room in Los Angeles! You are in the right place. When you stay with us, you are home. Your private non-smoking room comes appointed with a desk, a chair, lots of storage space in your full-length closet with mirrored doors, and a basket of books for your reading enjoyment. (Our book policy: Take one, leave one.) You also get towels, washcloths and a key to your room so you can lock it when you go out and your things will be safe and secure. Next door to your room is a shared full restroom with a Jacuzzi tub and shower. We also provide the shampoo, conditioner and body wash plus a hair dryer so there is no need to take up space in your luggage with those things.
Your room comes with 2 double beds to sleep up to 4 people comfortably.
Enjoy full run of the house which includes use of the kitchen, a washer and dryer, wifi (wireless internet), the living room with cable tv (Go, Lakers!) and of course the spacious back yard and patio that comes with a barbecue island complete with its own dedicated gas line for your grilling enjoyment.
We are located within 30 minutes of everywhere you want to be: Universal Studios Hollywood, Disneyland, The Walk of Fame, The Hollywood Sign, Venice and Santa Monica Beaches, Long Beach, and even the mountains. Yes, it's true. In Southern California, you can go surfing in the morning and skiing in the afternoon.
Even better, we are only 10 minutes from the Citadel Outlet Mall and Commerce Casino, 20 minutes from Downtown LA, Staples Center, LA Live, The Convention Center, the Coliseum, Exposition Park and USC.
Please note that all times are based on driving time. We highly recommend that you have a car, simply because Los Angeles is so big and spread out, and trying to get around on public transportation will take too much of your valuable vacation time.
Parking: there is free public street parking around our neighborhood which is available on a first-come-first-serve basis. You can park on either side of the street, just read the signs carefully to avoid parking between 7am and noon on street sweeping days which are Thursday and Friday. The city is very good about giving parking tickets so simply park on the opposite side of the street the night before and you will have no worries.
That being said, buses are easily accessible and all of the amenities are within walking distance from our home: super market, gas station, liquor store, restaurants, fast food, post office and clothing stores. Just a few blocks away we also offer a beautiful park as well as a running / walking / biking path that follows the river bed where you can enjoy a few quiet moments with the ducks, geese, seagulls, cranes and numerous water fowl.
Here's a sure-fire way to get a fast approval. When you request to stay, answer the following 4 questions:
1. Where will you be coming from?
2. Who will you be traveling with?
3. What will you be doing while you are in town?
4. How can we help make your stay more enjoyable?
When determining the number of people in your group, please note that according to our booking rules, every human being regardless of age counts as a person.
Rooms are available on a first come, first serve basis. Once you are approved to stay, click the "Book it" button to make payment and lock in your stay. You will then receive a reservation confirmation which contains the address, instructions for checking in and the link to my special Booking Bonus website, "Best Things to do in LA" that gives you a 3-day plan for getting the most out of your Los Angeles Experience and the discount code for Hertz car rental company.
We want your stay in LA to be the best and we look forward to hosting you.

"Guest House With Private Entrance" - Comes with 1 queen bed and private 3/4 bath. We can set up a cot for a third person. Book from: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/6030710 Guest Access1 Getting AroundFor getting around town, we recommend that you have a car. Los Angeles is so big and spread out and having a car is the key to seeing and doing the most while you are in town.
When you book with me, I give you a discount when you rent your car from Hertz. Hertz is the best because they do not have an underage fee for drivers under age 25. As long as the driver is at least 21, they get the same great rates.
If you will be using public transportation, you are in luck because the bus stop is just 2 blocks from the house. The 50 bus takes you to downtown in under an hour and from there you can transfer to the metro to easily get to Hollywood and Universal Studios.
However, for getting from place to place faster, I recommend using Uber or Lyft by downloading the app, setting up an account and requesting a ride. They are cheaper than a taxi and friendlier.
Other Things to NoteWe do not allow smoking (not even marijuana), pets or drugs in our beautiful home. Other than that, feel free to enjoy full run of the house.
The living room, kitchen, dining room, breakfast bar and patio are shared areas. Here are some rules we have found to be helpful:
We encourage cooking...and sharing food.:) We love to try new dishes every chance we get. We only ask that you please clean up after yourself and wash your dishes as soon as you are done. Thank you!
When it comes to food, just write your name on it with the pens we provide and no one else will eat it.
Continental Breakfast is available daily along with coffee and tea. (Eggs are not included in the breakfast bar) Just look for things labeled "airbnb".
Check in time is 3:00 pm. Check out time is 12:00 noon.
