Weitere wichtige Infos

We are located right across the street from an elementary school and during weekday stays in the morning you may hear children and bell announcements. There's also a church nearby so you will hear the church bells chime from time to time. And we are close to the heart of the city so you will hear typical city noise especially on weekdays but weekends are nice and quiet. The house has two driveways and my neighbor parks his cars in the back.

Please take off your shoes when entering the home. Because of the new dark hardwood floors it helps us to maintain them and to avoid tracking dirt everywhere.

When using the kitchen, please make sure to clean up after yourself and do not leave any food or crumbs lying out so that we prevent any pests from coming in the house.

The kitchen counter tops are custom concrete countertops so they are strong but can stain and chip easily:

Please do not place hot pans on the counter tops. Use a pot holder or cutting board.
Please do not cut on the counters with out a cutting board or plate.
Please wipe off acidic items if they spill on the counter as soon as possible (like vinegar or lemon).

Please double check and lock the front and rear doors at night and close any windows that you have opened. Bedroom windows can be left opened because we have security bars on the windows.

If anything is accidentally broken please tell us. We won't get mad. Just let us know so we can get it fixed.

There are a lot of things that may look tempting to take. We account for everything in the home once you leave so please be respectful. We want all our guests to come back and to feel like this is home.

Please no pets of any kind in the home.

Please no smoking in the home. You may only smoke outside at least 25 ft from the front porch or rear deck of the home in order to comply with California public health safety standards.

And lastly, please try to leave the house as you found it. If you can help tidy up before you leave that really helps us a lot. :)

Gary was a perfect host, he showed us around and gave access to the whole house. The house is very nicely renovated and there is no unnecessary decoration which we appreciated a lot! You really have the feeling to stay in a professionally run bed and breakfast. The neighborhood has not (yet) that many bars and restaurants, but by car it is perfect to drive to downtown, Little Tokyo or even Pasadena within 10-15 minutes, and the hip-neighborhoods as Echo Park or High Land are very close, too. If you want a typical LA experience you should stay in his house!

Thank you Fabienne for your very thoughtful review. I am so glad you were able to spend Christmas at the house and hope your family enjoyed your time. Thanks also for your great suggestions-- a lamp beside the bed and shelf for toiletries are simple add ons that could make the experience even better! :) Thank you Fabienne for a terrific A+++ AirBnB experience.

I am a USC student and I have been renting a room at this house for the past semester. I love how it is less than 5 minutes from the HSC campus and about 20 minutes away from the main campus (there is even an intercampus shuttle). It is located near all major freeways ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)). I also love how close it is to Little Tokyo, Chinatown, Pasadena, and Alhambra. There is so much good and diverse food in the area that I still haven't tried them all. Diana's Torta and Dino's Burgers just up the street are very good. I also love Ramen Champ and Pok Pok Phat Thai in Chinatown, Gyu-Kaku and 85°C Bakery Cafe in Pasadena, Daikokuya and Sushi Gen in Little Tokyo, and Urth Caffe and Wurstkuche in the arts district. I also love how this Craftsman house has been newly renovated in the past two years, and it is such a beautiful home. I also love the new LG washer and dryer, and there is so much space in the back for parking. Gary, the owner, is great! He is very nice and welcoming, and makes sure that the house is always clean and spotless. I could not have asked for a better host and Air BnB, and I would definitely book it again if I am ever back in the area after I study abroad next semester. Thanks for everything Gary! It has been great!

We are truly grateful to have you as our guest this past Fall Semester. We love that you love food and cooking and introduced us to local eats that were super great. And you really took care of the home and we really appreciate it! We are glad to help be your home for a little while before you study abroad and we are glad to know that our home is a great spot for any USC student at the Health Sciences Campus and even University Park Campus. Yu is the perfect student guest at any AirBnB! A+++ Come back any time!

We had an amazing time at Gary's house. First of all, it's a gorgeous house - we were wowed by the desert landscaping in the front yard as we approached the house. Then upon entering the house, we wowed by the beautiful dark hardwood floors and interior decoration. Gary was a very welcoming host and easy to get in touch with (we communicated via text). He had provided information in advance. He had refreshments in the refrigerator and gave us some recommendations on restaurants around the neighborhood. He also gave us other recommendations for other eateries in L.A. when we told him we were going to explore other neighborhood. We love the fact that Gary's house was in a central location and close to the freeways so it was easy to visit other parts of L.A. We had a lovely stay that was comfortable and private -- we had clean linens and towels provided and our room had an attached bathroom. Also, since this was our last stop in our week-long SoCal trip, we loved having access to the washer and dryer for clean clothes - a huge bonus. Thank you, Gary, and we would definitely stay again when we visit L.A. in the future!

What a beautiful retreat space and home! We loved staying at Gary's. The bed was comfortable, and everything was very clean. It was only a few miles away from my sister's house, Downtown L.A., and our favorite places in Little Tokyo. I'm thinking to return for a writing/get-away weekend during the Christmas holidays. We'll be back!

Gary was amazing and made us feel extremely welcome. Had thought of the kind touches that made a difference being away from home. Beautiful home and very accurate description. Could not have asked for a better stay.

I am a native Angeleno and a part time Philadelphian. I am a super commuter that works in online education at the Keck School of Medicine at USC. I travel back to the East Coast frequently to spend QT time with my partner and 3-year-old daughter who both live in Philly.

My life's work is as a community-based artist as a theater director and documentary filmmaker. I'm always in search of personal stories from the heart and love to hear everyday people share their stories about who they are and where they come from.

Music is a big part of my life and I play the ukulele and listen to Hawaiian music whenever I'm stuck in L.A. traffic.

I love old homes and have a passion for restoring them. They have amazing history and beautiful character that you can never duplicate or find anywhere else.

While staying in our newly restored Craftsman retreat home, you will experience friendly service and the warmth and openness of an old L.A. home. I hope the creativity and beauty of this home brings calm, creativity, and inspiration.
