Art Deco Guestroom Near Beverly Hills
|Address||S. Wooster St, 90035 Los Angeles, United States|
|Property type||Private room|
|Response time||A few hours|
The master bedroom is your sanctuary with a brand-new, incredibly-comfortable California king-size bed and two plush, over-sized, leather club chairs. Enjoy TV, DVD, 15 mps high-speed wireless Internet. The (shared) bathroom is right next door and features a shower large enough to accommodate two and separate bathtub. Enjoy full kitchen access with a lovely Art Deco breakfast nook. Espressos, lattes, juicer, etc. and a blender for smoothies and/or Margaritas. Lovely formal dining room and a designer living room with fireplace, view of downtown, and 55-inch LED/LCD surround-sound, multimedia home theater. Brand-new steam-cleaning washer/drier has a quick steam refresh feature. No ironing! Beautifully landscaped back yard for lounging, drinking, dining, even entertaining.
I live two minutes south of BEVERLY HILLS just off the ultra-chic, celebrity-filled Robertson Blvd (much more hip than Rodeo Drive, but close to there too if you like), CENTURY CITY, WEST HOLLYWOOD and (if you prefer locals to tourists) the newly-refurbished CULVER CITY filled with European-style sidewalk bars, restaurants, multiplex movie theater, and the intimate (Art Deco) Kirk Douglas Theater if you prefer drama. Have a drink in the historic Culver Hotel where the Munchkins slept and notoriously partied (hard) every night while filming The Wizard of Oz. (Ruby slippers optional.) You are 15 minutes, but usually less, from everywhere else whether it be the AIRPORT (want me to pick you up?), DOWNTOWN, WESTWOOD (UCLA), HOLLYWOOD, VENICE, or SANTA MONICA. Virtually all of LA's many museums and attractions are within easy reach.
My "Pico/Roberson" neighborhood is quiet, classy, eclectic and ethnically-diverse with small, intimate restaurants ranging from Thai to Vietnamese, Chinese, Sushi, countless Kosher restaurants (including LA's first delicatessen), Kosher Mexican if you can believe that, authentic Mexican (duh!), French, Lebanese, bakeries galore, and even a hand-made ice cream and candy store. All are within walking distance. Elat, an unbelievable, multi-ethnic Middle-Eastern/Mediterranean supermarket is just up my street on Pico. (Great website!) Trader Joe's is five minutes away as is a more traditional Von's supermarket. Every Thursday, we have a terrific neighborhood Farmer's Market just a few blocks away featuring locally-grown produce.
A historically Jewish neighborhood (now ethnically diverse), countless synagogues are within walking distance, but so is St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church. And an Egyptian Coptic Church is right next door to an Indian Sikh Temple just a few blocks from my house. Talk about eclectic!
On the other side of Robertson is La Cienega's "Restaurant Row." Dining/theater options are limitless. Within minutes, you are cruising the historic Fairfax District: Little Ethiopia, Farmers Market, and The Grove's Shopping/Dining/Theater Complex. I am in the center of it all and for the most part you can avoid LA's notorious traffic by sticking to surface streets or rapid transit.
I am one short block from a major bus line and minutes from LA's new rapid transit rail system. Subways in LA? Who knew? An inexpensive "unlimited" day pass whisks you to USC and Exposition Park, Downtown, Hollywood, both the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys, Long Beach (The Queen Mary) and all parts in between. Don't miss the Watts Towers! Link to Central Station, another of LA's many magnificent Art Deco palaces, and catch a train to San Diego (short walk to Mexico), San Francisco, or even Portland and Seattle.
Or forget rapid transit and LA traffic entirely! Bring (or rent) a bicycle! I am one mile from the Ballona Creek bike path which carries you straight to Marina del Rey's beach bike paths south through the quaint coastal cities of Hermosa and Redondo Beach to the Palos Verdes Peninsula (and light house), or north through Venice and Santa Monica all the way to Pacific Palisades. Return to the Ballona Wetlands and allow the afternoon ocean breeze to push you all the way home. LA Fitness' premier workout facility (including large swimming pool, sauna, and jacuzzi) is four short blocks away.
House rulesMy rules are simple. Treat my home as if it is your home. No smoking or pets, but you may entertains guests in the lovely back yard.

Reviews of this property
Me and my wife spent a few days at Randy's home.
Randy a charming, very caring and friendly host.
We have felt at his home and have been treated more than guests, but like very close friends.
Always has given us advices very useful to visit places and corners of LA and neighborhood, in interesting and unusual way, instructed us, how to navigate through the city as good as possible to avoid traffic and problems.
His advices were invaluable, we used them all, so, we visited places and things we had no idea before.
The home is comfortably furnished, clean, well maintained and equipped, placed in a good location.
For me and my wife it was very special trip and Randy was our very special host.
I highly recommend stay at Randy.
Thank you for special time.

Randy is a terrific host. Feels like home during our stay. If you tell him where you in to that day, he gives you great suggestions and a lot of tips to make the day a success. When you back in time, he invites you to grab some dinner or watch a series with him. But if you tired or want some more privacy, you free to go that way as well. Long story short, if you want a nice stay with a great host, stay with Randy.
Randy was such a nice host to my boyfriend and I. He made us feel home and treaded us more like friends than guests. We shared a lot of discussions with him and hang out several time together wich was really great (dinner, movies). He knows his way around LA so you can count on him if you need any advise on what to do or where to go. I would really recommend Rand has your next host in LA, plus his house is beautiful and the bed was comfortable.
Randy gave us a very warmly welcome to his home. Randy was a very friendly host and we felt us like at home. Randy gave us a lot of information, what we can do in LA. The house is located in a very safe environment. If we come back to LA, we would stay at Randy´s home again.
Hospitality as a family , perfect host, fantastic home , Superlative neighborhood, vote 10 !!!
Randy est très sympa et accueillant et cultivé. Sa maison est très bien à proximité des transports en commun si on a pas de voiture et des lieux à visiter. Quartier très agréable et calme. Nous recommandons
Dieses Apartement zu mieten war die beste Entscheidung, die man treffen konnte. Bei Randy kann man Nichts falsch machen. Ein sehr netter, hilfsbereiter und zuvorkommender Gastgeber. Er lebt Los Angeles richtig. Falls es an Ideen mangelt, was man denn am Tag tun könnte, einfach Randy fragen. Kleine Geheimtipps hat er immer parat. Ob Restaurant, Straßen, Attraktionen etc.
Ein kleines gemütliches Heim mit bester Gastfreundlichkeit.
Nur zu empfehlen.
Randy is an amazing host. He tells you a lot about LA and a lot of other stuff, which is really interesting. His home is a sweet house where you just feel like in your own home. You can use everything. Also you are not far from everything. Within 15 minutes you almost everywhere you wanna be. LA is a great City with a lot to do. We stayed there for 2 weeks, and I cant believe it´s already over. If you want a real american home with a really nice host, you should stay at Randy´s. My room was very good and comfortable and the bathroom also perfect. Randy is very welcoming and helps a lot. Thank you so much for everything Randy, I will def. come back next year. I miss you, your home (not the neigbours dog ;) ) and LA already.... have a good time, see you soon.. Your German friends Lisa and Ina
We were staying at Randy´s house for 8 nights. Before the arrival we had a good e-mail conversation so we had got a lot of useful information about the stay and things to do in LA. The house was like "home" and we could use the facilities as we wanted. The location was perfect for going everywhere in the city and the neigbourhood was quiet and peaceful. A small mall and take away food places is just nearby.
Randy himself is a very good host, that will give you information about the things you want to do or see. We enjoyed the small kitchen and the outside back area of the house, in witch we spent a lot of time in the mornings and evenings.
We had a wonderful time in LA and at Randy´s place. We would highly recomend this place to stay.
