About the Homestay
What does it mean to be American? Are we really a melting pot of cultures, or is it our differences that bring us together? We have a nice 5 bedroom home overlooking the San Pedro bridge. We have three HUGE generation gaps living in our home from my traditional American parents to my half Filipino children. The cuisine, culture and social mores span the gamut in this home and there is rarely a dull, un-educating and non-inspirational moment. If you are looking for the true American flavor and want to experience the real America then look no further.
We also like to entertain so there are many opportunities to meet many other people.
Please share with us a little about your language, food and culture.

This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
La maison et la chambre étaient très confortables, cependant, excepté la grand-mère et le père avec qui j'ai pu discuter facilement, dans l'ensemble j'étais inexistante dans leur maison, j'ai été royalement ignorée.
Autre remarque, mais qui n'a rien à voir avec la maison, avant de venir à Los Angeles, gardez à l'esprit que c'est très mal desservi au niveau du transport, ce ne sont que des bus, et les horaires sont à couper au couteau. Heureusement que je me suis faite des amis sur place qui ont pu m'emmener visiter plein de choses.
Si vous cherchez un endroit convivial, où vous serez intégré dans la famille, je vous recommanderai de vous tourner vers une autre famille. Mais si vous cherchez juste un logement confortable, et que vous avez de quoi louer une voiture, cela reste une très bonne option et un très bon rapport qualité/prix.
I stayed for three weeks in the house of this lovely family and I had an amazing time there! This was my first travel in the USA and I definitely don't regret this. It was the best experience in my life so far and I'm glad I found this family. Chris and Melogen are very friendly and helpful and if you need help with anything, they will help you. Their two Children are very well behaved. It was a very familiar atmosphere and you feel like you belong to this family from the first day. Chris can also tell you a lot of interesting stories about America. It was always a pleasure to talk to him! The cooking skills of Melogen are great! The meals were absolutely delicious! I can definitely recommend this great family to single travellers!
Thank you Melogen and Chris for this amazing time!
