Welcome to your "Los Angeles Hollywood Room" - a non-smoking room upstairs in our 5 bedroom, 3 bath house in the safe and quiet suburbs of Pico Rivera, located on the East side of Los Angeles County. .
Your room comes furnished with 1 Queen bed and a full bed plus a lamp, a bedside table, an air conditioner, heater, and a spacious closet with mirrored doors. Linens and towels are also provided for you plus a key to your room so you can lock it when you go out and your things will be safe and secure.
Our cozy house is located on a quiet cul de sac in a nice neighborhood. The owners live in 1 bedroom which leaves 4 bedrooms for other guests.
Get that home-away-from-home experience when you stay with us. Benefits include:
~ Free strong wireless internet throughout the house that even extends to the Cozy Cabin.
~ Continental breakfast is included daily. Help yourself to toast, oatmeal, cereal and fruit. And of course there is always fresh-brewed coffee and an assortment of teas.
~ You get full run of the house and are welcome to use the kitchen, washer and dryer (soap and dryer sheets provided for you), flat panel TV in the living room, Netflix, VCR/DVD player, video and DVD library.
~ Have breakfast or get some sun on the patio. The Jacuzzi is hot and ready from March - October.
~ Borrow our bicycles and take a ride to the riverbed. We have a bird sanctuary less than a mile away. For the more adventurous, you might even take a spin on our pink scooter-bike.
~ 24-Hour Super Walmart with grocery store is walking distance from the house. As a great money-saving tip, might we suggest that you stop in at the 24-hour Walmart and stock up on your favorite items on your way to our house. Then, stash your stuff in your designated space in the fridge or just write your name on it with the pens we provide for you. Then you are free to cook (we just ask that you wash any dishes you might use) to your heart's content. This is a great way to save money and eat healthier while traveling.
~ Organic garden and NutriBullet - and we invite you to harvest some kale from our organic garden and make yourself a healthy drink using our NutriBullet.
~ We are located less than 5 miles away from Los Angeles County's very own Outlet Shopping Mall, "The Citadel" for the best deals and shopping experience around. Easy access by bus from our house as well.
~ It is less than 5 miles to the world famous Commerce Casino. Best known for its poker tournaments.
~ SPECIAL INVITATION ~
And last but not least, we invite you to join in a family tradition. When you stay with us you get to make a flag with your name on it for our world map. Plant your flag to represent your home town and become an official member of our international family.
If you want to bring a gift for your hosts (we love gifts!) might I suggest some beer from your country? Jaime makes his own beer every other Sunday with his friends in our garage. We'd love to try your beer and share with you some of what we believe is the best home-brewed beer in Southern California - OURS! Cheers!
We also keep a mini fridge stocked with drinks, sodas and yes, even some of our home-brew that is a self-serve fridge where we ask that if you take one, just leave a donation. The money goes to Jaime's hobby so he can make more beer. Yay!
We have hosted international students for over 10 years and love to share our native Southern California with everyone. We can provide recommendations for all of the best local attractions: Universal Studios, Hollywood, Disneyland, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Staples Center, Malibu, all of the local beaches, Rodeo Drive, the Hollywood Sign, the best shopping malls and Outlet Centers, local ski slopes, tennis courts, magnificent golf courses, and much more.
Airport pick ups and drop offs are also available for up to 5 people; $60 for the first 3 people each way. If a second car is needed for luggage or a 4th and 5th person, add $20.
We even offer something I like to call my "Magic Carpet Ride" service where for a flat fee you are taken on a customized private tour of LA. You pick the places to see based on YOUR interests. The boundaries are Magic Mountain to the North and Orange County to the South. You get a driver/tour guide/designated driver at your beck and call for the whole day for just $120. Plus you benefit from our insider knowledge and get tips and tricks for how to get photos from above and behind the Hollywood sign (now that's one most people don't have), the best roof-top bars in Downtown LA, how to get a free tour of the Walt Disney Concert Hall and maybe even a discount to Universal Studios Hollywood!
We look forward to meeting you!
