This Whittier home is located 10 miles from downtown Los Angeles and Orange County. The 2,500 square foot home is very private and sits on a 1/2 acre. With the hills behind you and the city lights below, the home is ideal for a SoCal Vacation.

The space

We invite you to come and stay in our 3 bedroom, 2 and a half bathroom house in Historic Uptown Whittier, approximately 10 miles east of Downtown Los Angeles , Staples Center, LA Fashion District, LA Convention Center, LA Live, Coliseum, USC , and Exposition Park . We are centrally located no more than a 30 minute drive to the Commerce Casino, Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm and many beautiful beaches.

We are centrally located between Disneyland (20 minutes), Universal Studios, Hollywood, Santa Monica and Venice Beach (45 minutes), with easy freeway access to get to our great beaches and all the tourist attractions in LA!

Our home is located steps from the most beautiful park in Whittier (Penn Park) and a short walk to the Historic Uptown area were there are many great restaurants, coffee houses, shopping and a movie theater. Uptown has a small town feel, with a big city menu.

This house is perfect for individuals, families, or groups. We are walking distance to Whittier College, Uptown Whittier and only 10 minutes away from Biola College, PIH and Whittier Hospital. Located only minutes away from miles of hiking, running and mountain bike trails in the local Whittier Hills.

Come enjoy our unique location. You will feel like you are secluded in nature and might even spot our local deer that come in from the hills behind us to snack. Enjoy all the amenities of our home, wifi, laundry room, air conditioning and more.

The home is bright, open and spacious. The kitchen is open to the dining and sitting rooms where you will have views and patios in every direction. The home was remodeled in the 90's so it has a unique flare and simplicity.
The master bedroom is large and has it's own sitting room and TV. While we have the home set up for three bedrooms, the TV room has a door and closet and can be used as a fourth bedroom. We have a queen sized aero-bed for your use and an extra twin fold up mattress that can also be used for another bed.

Entire home, backyard, surrounding yards, laundry room.
The garage is the only area that has no access.

Interaction with guests

I will have either myself or a friend available to help guests with needs. You can have as much privacy as you prefer.

Other things to note

The home has three bedrooms, but there is also a TV room that can be used as a bedroom. It has a door and we have a queen aero bed and a fold out twin mat that can be used in that room.

The house was beautiful and was located in a quiet family neighborhood. Kristin made everything easy from checking in to checking out. My family and I loved the view and spent most of our nights lounging in the backyard.

We loved our stay! The living room and kitchen areas were spacious enough for all 8 of us at once. The deck has a beautiful view. We all really enjoyed hanging out outside at night. We would definitely stay here again. Kristin was quick to respond with anything we needed. Thank you for an amazing stay!

Our stay at Kristin's home was fantastic! We went to Santa Monica Pier, Universal Studios, Hollywood, and Zuma Beach in Malibu. Our drive was around an hr to those places, considering LA traffic not too bad. There were 10 of us, we had plenty of room, we never felt crowded. The home is as Kristin describes it. The kids also enjoyed the basketball goal outside, was used just about every day we were there. The kitchen had everything we needed, the home was clean, outside patio is nice. Should we visit California again, we would stay here again!

Kristin was an amazing host! Overall, it was a great experience for my family and I. We loved how the house was so spacious and we also enjoyed the beautiful scenery, the jacuzzi, games, etc.I enjoyed the whole house, especially the backyard too (my favorite part of the house). Her handbook was so helpful. The house had everything that we needed to cook, clean, and enough beds for everyone to sleep in. I highly recommend this home because it made my trip fun and enjoyable and I couldn't complain about anything one bit. Thank you again, Kristin!!
