Description

The space

Private room with queen size bed. Calm, clean room with spacious closet. A safe hotel alternative where you will feel right at home!

If other guests are staying in room #1, you will be sharing a bathroom.

Guest access

Guest have access to common areas (kitchen/living room/dining area) for light use.

Interaction with guests

I will be in and out of the house, but readily available for any questions or concerns. I like to give people their privacy, but am always happy to interact, particularly with guests who are not familiar with Los Angeles.

Feel free to interact with other guests that may be staying in the room next door. Making new friends is always fun, but not mandatory :)

The neighbourhood

West Adams Historic District up and coming community close to USC and downtown LA. I grew up and this area and found it hard to leave due to it's central location so I stayed. The area is on its way to becoming a prime location for visitors and locals alike.
No need to get on the freeway to get downtown, as it's literally a 5 min drive on the street. If driving off peak traffic hours, you can get to all of LA cities within 20 min :)

"West Adams is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Los Angeles, with most of its buildings erected between 1880 and 1925, including the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library. West Adams was developed by railroad magnate Henry E. Huntington and wealthy industrialist Hulett C. Merritt of Pasadena. It was once the wealthiest district in the city, with its Victorian mansions and sturdy Craftsman bungalows home to Downtown businessmen and professors and academicians at USC. Several areas of West Adams, namely, Harvard Heights, Lafayette Square, Pico-Union, and West Adams Terrace, were designated as Historic Preservation Overlay Zones by the city of Los Angeles, in recognition of their outstanding architectural heritage. Menlo Avenue-West Twenty-ninth Street Historic District, North University Park Historic District, Twentieth Street Historic District, Van Buren Place Historic District and St. James Park Historic District, all with houses of architectural significance, are located in West Adams.

The development of the West Side, Beverly Hills and Hollywood, beginning in the 1910s, siphoned away much of West Adams' upper-class white population; upper-class blacks began to move in around this time, although the district was off limits to all but the very wealthiest African-Americans. One symbol of the area's emergence as a center of black wealth at this time is the 1949 headquarters of the Golden State Mutual Life Insurance Company, a late-period Moderne structure at Adams and Western designed by renowned black architect Paul Williams. It housed what was once one of the nation's largest black-owned insurers (currently, along with an adjacent new building, it is now a campus for a large non-profit). West Adams' transformation into an affluent black area was sped by the Supreme Court's 1948 invalidation of segregationist covenants on property ownership.[1] The area was a favorite among black celebrities in the 1940s and 1950s; notable residents included Hattie McDaniel, Joe Louis, Sweet Daddy Grace, Little Richard, and Ray Charles." - Wikipedia

Getting around

Uber is a good option. The bus/Metro is only two blocks away. Check out LA metro app for the most affordable transportation.


The metro expo rail line is just blocks away from my house and can take you all the way to Santa Monica beach and downtown!

Other things to note

Please note that I have three little dogs in the house that may bark with noise. They will stay in my room when guest are there, unless I am home.

The house is protected by security surveillance cameras. I take your privacy seriously and do not place cameras in your room or bathroom. The cameras are there for my safety/protection as well as yours. The cameras are set in common areas and are clearly visible. By making a reservation, you are consenting to surveillance camera recording.


House Rules

First and foremost...Have a GREAT time and enjoy your stay!!

Absolutely no smoking or drugs allowed inside or outside the house (smoking outside the premise is fine).

No other guests allowed on the premises.

Do your best to maintain space tidy in consideration of other guests. Please clean up after yourself in common areas. No food allowed in rooms- use dining area pls. Thanks.

No loud noise after 10pm...but that doesn't mean you have a curfew :)

Please respect my belongings/privacy. Didn't think I had to spell this out, but people have gone through my belongings in common areas more than once. I'm trusting you when inviting you to my home, so please respect it. I don't go through your belongings, so please don't go through mine. It is unfortuante that I know have to keep a log of items.

Before booking, please note that 3 small dogs live on the property (they stay in my room for the most part). Therefore, if you are allergic I will not be able to accommodate- so sorry. If you fear dogs or are easily annoyed with barking, the house may not be the right fit. I wouldn't want my guests to feel uneasy or annoyed as they can bark quite loud at times.

Laundry is available for fee.

My stay at Lucia's this week was short but sweet! The house was very clean and ready for me when I arrived. Check in and check out is very easy. The house is close to USC, so it's very convenient for anyone visiting or working there. I'll be back!

L is a wonderful host! She's super friendly and welcoming. Her house is bigger and prettier than what I expected based on the photos. Our room is very clean and comfortable. The location is near USC both by walking or taking Uber. Highly recommend :)

Another great stay at Lucia's! The house is very clean and comfortable. I'll be back again. Lucia is also a very good host. Early in my stay I asked her if she had an ironing board that I could use for work clothes. She did not, but when I came back that day I'd found that she'd just bought one for the house. Thanks!!!

Lucia is very kind and welcoming. Her description of the place is accurate and she sets good expectations. She is clear and communicative. She is careful about choosing her guests as well, so if someone else is staying in the other room you can be sure that they are friendly and responsible.

My stay at Lucia's house was excellent! She is a very kind host, the room was clean, and check in/out was a breeze. The house is close to the 10 and 110 freeways and very close to USC. Lucia had some great restaurant recommendations. Overall I am very happy with my stay.

Travel. Live, don't exist!

I have done quite a bit of traveling using airbnb and now it's time for me to give back and host my fellow airbnb travelers. I welcome you to the City of Angels and my home.

I hope to provide fellow airbnb users a safe, comfortable, private, and welcoming place to stay during their visit. Thanks for visiting!

Other than my interest in travel, I am a dog lover and a nurse. I have a passion for sushi and tennis (although not the best at it!).
