    It is an extremely friendly and warm family! Once you live in, you will be treated like one of the family members. Also, the host, Mayra, not only takes good care of her guests but also gives them plenty of useful tips. Super appreciate it!

    Mayra is a great host.
    She helped us a lot to become familiar with the zone, and during all the six months she has been always available to assist us for every circumstance.
    She helped us to find a new phone and a new SIM, she took us to see very wonderful places and she always gave us precious suggestions.
    Her kids are really lovely and the other guest, Yuanyuan, is a great housemate!
    The neighborhood is quite and safe! At walking distance you can find: more than one shops, some fast-food, a library and a park where you can run and train yourself with some gymnastic machines.
    The house is also in a key point from a transportation point of view: in a 1 minute walking you can reach a metro stop where you can go to all the places in Los Angeles with maximum one metro change.
    It is highly recommended buying the TAP CARD: it is a magnetic card that can be used to move all around Los Angeles at $1,75.
    The position of the house is also perfect for USC students. The USC is at 40 minutes walking, 20 minutes with a bicycle and 10 minutes with the metro.
    You can take the metro bus 204 paying $1,75 or the Southeast Dash paying $0,50. The last one drops you off before to reach the USC, at 10 minutes walking.
    We can't imagine a better host, a better family, a better house and a better position. We're pretty sure you can't find a better quality/price relationship. Of course you can go in the wonderful Beverly Hills, but you'll pay 5 times more for a smaller space!
    We would say thanks to Mayra for these amazing months, and we promise to come back in the future!

    I strongly recommend this place.
    Mayra is very hospitable, considerate and friendly.
    There were many happy memonies. For example, once I was going to have a exam early in the morning, and Mayra offered to give me a ride, I am very grateful to her for this.
    It was a very pleasant journey and I enjoyed a lot there.
    Also the room is big and cozy, with all kinds of equipments a guest needed.

    We had such a pleasant experience staying in Mayra's house. She and her family were kind and helpful all the time. We felt like home and we'll take to Brazil only good memories from there. The house is beautiful and cozy. We found our room perfectly clean and organized. We have nothing to say about Mayra's but good things. We strongly recommend.

    I and my wife we stayed 15 days to mayra.

    We had a good time there in Los Angeles, in spite of a random weather at this time of year.
    Mayra advised to us by e-mail to facilitate our arrival at her home.

    there, we were welcomed well, made comfortable from our arrival.

    The room is spacious, clean, attractive, and have a restroom in the room.

    Mayra, it's a very nice, sociable, friendly person, in the listening, if we don't really speak English, she takes the time to try to understand what we said,
    she gives good advices, will help you to find good plans for miscellaneous activities.

    She speaks Spanish also!

    Generous, welcoming, friendly, thoughtful atmosphere, here is adjectives concerning the small family.

    The district is quiet, several shops, bars and restaurants nearby.
    Well served by buses, which will take you to the place of interest, but it's better to take a pass (tap Card).

    In brief, at Mayra we a felt at home, it's not a 4star hotel but the hospitality and the user-friendliness that she proposes ought to be worth 5 !
    As I said her at the time of the farewells, she richly deserves her 5* on homestay.

    For these reasons you are strongly recommended to stay at her home.

    P.S. : big kisses from Reunion Island to Mayra, Renata, Oscar and Yuanyuan, We keep good memories about you!
    May be see you next year ;)

    we hope that we were able to retranscribe what we wanted to say in English.
