Adreana is exceptionally hospitable. Our stay was amazing. She takes care of the smallest details that can be of use for her guests.

The hospitality at Adreana’s place was outstanding. She provided a very nice breakfast, a fan or heater as needed, and a clean, comfortable space. My only wish is that I could have hung out more in the backyard area which had plenty of space on artificial grass in the California sun with the cat and dogs. I would recommend sleeping with the window closed and the fan on high if you’re a light sleeper due to the Pomeranians. I slept very well with this method. Thanks, Adreana!

The place is awesome, Adreana is an amazing host. She was responsive and flexible with my check-in which helped a lot. The complimentary breakfast was a great touch. I can see how the area could turn off boujee suburban people, but it's honestly not that serious. The house itself is beautiful inside and out. 10/10 would Airbnb again

Brent was an awesome guest. To get a a view of our neighborhood simply look up Malabar Elementary. We are located a couple of houses to the west of the elementary. Our neighborhood is simply decent, humble, and hard working class families.

Probably the best airbnb I've stayed at. So welcoming and wonderful. Complimentary continental breakfast and coffee in the morning was so awesome! Especially since I had to get up at 5am to get to LAC. I'm a med student from Philly on rotation and I felt at home. If you're looking for an awesome comfy place to stay that's a $4 uber ride away from the hospital then look no further!

Adreana's place is great. She's quick to respond and was helpful with anything I needed. My only qualm is that parking can be a little frustrating, but there's easy workarounds.

Pros - Adriana is super friendly and STRONG (she carried my 2 big 30 pound bags up the stairs). A large selection of breakfast and coffee. Clean towels, spacious room. Cats/Dogs. Cons: 1) The neighborhood. Initially when I reached the place my Uber driver kept questioning whether if I am sure about the place. Same question as to why I stayed from another Uber driver when I checked out and left the house. This neighborhood has a bad rep from wha I've heard .The house has a shabby and an unkempt appearance from outside. And you'd have walk around the house to gain entry from the back. 2) Room gets super hot in the morning. However, the host will provide you with a fan. Overall- If you're looking for a cheap place to stay in LA and with some amazing breakfast and if you don't mind loud music from morning-evening this is the place.

Clarification: hearsay from uber drivers that do not know our neighborhood. I’m 42 and have lived here all my life. Grew up next door and still teach within my community. I walk and ride my bike in the middle of the night alone. Non of our guests have ever had a negative experience. People are friendly and helpful around here. As for “shabby & unkempt” we are/were redoing our outside entry hallway, backyard, and laundry room during his stay. All of our accommodations are within the same location. Please refer to all the other reviews.

This is my daughter (now 23 yrs.) and I through the years. We've used airbnb in our travels and loved it. We would love to pay it forward and make ours, your home too during your stay. I am a teacher and a coach in Los Angeles, CA. I love traveling across the United States with my daughter. She is a competitive track & field athlete. We love movies and dogs, specifically Pomeranians. I enjoy hosting and caring for others. I work with kids and therefore truly appreciate the "Serenity" Prayer and live by it.

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
