The space

Welcome to Casa Ruguel :)
A peaceful escape, your ROOM has a breathtaking view, your own private deck, private entrance and newly remodeled bathroom. It is the entire upstairs level of our home (we live downstairs). It is spacious, with a clothes rack/hangers and dresser for your use. It is also equipped with a mini refrigerator, microwave, Keurig Coffee/Tea/Cocoa maker, iron, ironing board, hair dryer, DirecTV, DVD/VHS player, desk, and wireless wifi. There is one California King sized bed and one single futon/bed. It is bright and airy with big windows and a glass door to the deck, but if you want to sleep in, every window has black-out blinds :) The room has an AC/Heating unit, so you can control it's thermostat.

Guest access

Our home is private and gated. Free parking is in our driveway directly in front of the house. Your room has its own private entrance just 10 steps from the driveway :) There is a bus stop and metro station in walking distance (see below).

Interaction with guests

We are a sweet family of 5, two ( gay ) dads, and our 9 year old triplets (oh, and a puppy)! We are usually on the go~ with school, work, karate, soccer games/practice, and family fun. You will have the entire upstairs floor and your bedroom is well insulated and quiet, but we do have 3 kids and a pup, so if you leave the windows open, you may occasionally hear the rascals playing in the yard ;) We will give you your space, and want you to enjoy your privacy upstairs, but we are just a phone call away (or downstairs) if you need us.

The neighbourhood

Mount Washington is a small, diverse community in the heart of Los Angeles. Great for nature lovers, students, sports enthusiasts, and artists of all kinds. Hike up the hill to the beautiful Self Realization Meditation Gardens, just one mile from our front door.

2.5 miles to Chinatown.

If this is your first visit to LA, be prepared, it is a huge city, with very diverse communities, in very close proximity to each other. (Hollywood can be a disappointment for first timers.) There are huge estates at the top of our hill and low income housing apartments at the bottom. We feel safe in our neighborhood, we walk up and down the hill with our kids and dog, as do our neighbors, often with pups and strollers. Many of our past guests do not have cars and walked down the hill to access public transport, and they have relayed to us that they felt comfortable and safe. Some of our surrounding areas are more urban, however, so you may see graffiti, or if you head into an adjacent neighborhood like Cypress Park or downtown, you may come across a homeless person or someone asking for change... hope that make sense!

Getting around

"Nobody Walks in LA..." ~Missing Persons ;)
Well, we do walk (and hike), but LA is a big city and quite spread out, so having a car sometimes makes it easier to get around. However; public transportation is decent and there are sights that are easier to access via bus or metro (because parking is scarce and expensive in some parts of town) . There is a bus stop at the bottom of our road, just 0.3 miles away and a 5 minute walk. We are 0.6 miles away from the closest metro station, a 15 minute walk down the hill. Also, uber and Lyft are great options for transport and arrival time to our home for pick up is usually under 5 minutes!

Other things to note

Your private restroom is complete, but petite, with a low ceiling, about 6'3" high in the shower. We are 5'9" and 5'10" so our heads don't touch the ceiling, however, if you are a giant ;), you may have to duck... Just something to keep in mind!
There is a microwave and mini refrigerator in the room, it does NOT have a full kitchen/stove/oven. However; if you are staying for longer than 3 days, and would like access to our kitchen, that can be arranged.
Laundry services are available.
We do have a small dog, but he stays downstairs, and is hypoallergenic (a Shih Tzu) and does not have access to your room.

We had a great stay. The room has everything you might need and they even provide laundry service. The check-in is easy because of the code pad. Also, great view. Generally a quiet place to rest.

This was my first time using an Airbnb and I was pleasantly surprised with how awesome our stay here was. The room has two beds and a wonderful bathroom and everything was just super clean. But the first thing that grabs your attention is the view from the balcony/outside sitting area and the photos don't do justice to what the actual sight is like. Its something out of a movie and I loved every bit of it. I would absolutely stay here again! Ru and Miguel are also super nice, helpful, and genuine guys that want to make sure you're getting the best out of your experience.

The space was very comfortable, clean and beautiful. Everything about the stay ran smoothly, Ru was very responsive and the room had everything we needed and more. The view was gorgeous, especially at night. It fairly easy to find, and it's within close distance to downtown. I will definitely be coming back. It's really worth the stay.

Loved this place. Even though it is classified as a share room, it felt like our own private home. The hosts were fantastic.

I love this place period. It is very private on the top floor of the home. You can walk out to the deck and a great view of the city light. I took some night picture and it looks great. It is also close to little tokyo, korean town and china town but others attraction. I have a good time and will book the same place when I am in town.
