Quiet and Private
I enjoyed staying here. It's further away from the city center and offers privacy and peace and quiet. Jose is kind, friendly and communicative. He is great to have conversations with and will give you insights about the community. Have him tell you about Zingo's. Delicious!
A quiet place to stay.
Don't let the lime green throw you off. This was a nice and quiet place to lay your head for several nights. This was my first home away from home experience, not even through other competitors. I wasn't sure what to expect. The property manager was on hand the first day and a text message away if I needed anything. The kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms and living room were clean. Sheets and towels were fresh. Neighbors were very friendly. Parking space is off the road and convenient. The stairs and walk way had ample lighting.
My only suggestion to the owner would be get a more comfortable couch. This one felt like it was going to fall apart if you put additional weight on it. You also need a table to at or to do some work at.
All in all, it was a nice stay.
It was cold and rainy at the time of my visit so I didn't get to enjoy the patio just outside the place.
Better in the photos
It feels like nothing in the house is to code. Amenities were nice and the landlord is great, but the property is in a pretty bad part of town, and the overall experience was not good.
Photos are not photoshopped, not sure what the problem was. He stated everything was good when I checked on guest. Perhaps they didn't like that I asked that they turn off outside light when not needed. The location is not Beverly hills but many guest have left their vehicles unlocked over night with no issues, not that I recommend it anywhere.
Jose is a very special person. His home is beautiful and his wonderful hospitality is amazing. On your arrival you receive a fabulous welcome basket. His home is spotlessly clean, newly-remodelled and a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. Loved every moment of my stay. Can't wait to go back. Thank you so much.
so much personality and charm
Very beautiful and comfortable home. Everything I needed was right there. I really loved the decorative surprises in every room. Thanks so much Jose
Cute little home in El Sereno
The house is adorable! It has some unique decorations, plenty of weather accommodations whether it’s too cold or too hot in the house. A small coffee maker, a microwave and toaster for cooking! however be forewarned there is no stove or oven. But other than that Jose was a fantastic host, super hospitable and really made us feel at home in his property. He also left us this really sweet welcome basket with lots of useful toiletries, snacks, water, disposable plates, etc. also the bed is SOOO comfy!! Cute little porch put back with outdoor grills, charcoal, etc. if you wanted to barbecue! Overall great stay and if it was as convenient location wise as it had been for me this trip, I would absolutely stay here again.
