About the Homestay
I live in a 4 bedroom house with my boyfriend Rick. I have lived in this house for over 30 years. There is a lovely back yard with shady areas to read and relax.
I serve a Continental breakfast daily. We have a cat, she likes to stay indoors and goes outdoors when she wants to. She's friendly.
I love baking and will serve my guests treats from time to time. The room has hardwood floors, plantation shutters, and a ceiling fan. There is a tv. We have WiFi as well.
The bus stop is 5 minutes away. This line goes from here to Santa Monica or in the other direction, to Westwood and UCLA. Connections can be made to the Expo line or to other bus lines.
We enjoy hosting our guests and look forward to meeting you.
Washing machine use is permitted, $7.00 per load, wash and dry.
$50 cleaning fee (per month) for stays over 2 weeks. $25 if less than 2 weeks.

I had a wonderful stay with Debra and Rick. The room was very comfortable, clean and had everything you need. Breakfast was tasty and so was the cake . Debra and Rick are very friendly and helpful hosts. I really liked our conversations! And the cat is just cute.
I had an excellent stay. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. My host was friendly and warm with great suggestions for thing to do in the area. Thank you for making my trip a success!
I stayed with Debra and Rick for more than 2 months. They live in a safe and nice neighborhood. I got breakfast served every morning (what i enjoyed a lot :)) and they even included me in different activities.
I had such a good time and they really made me feel like I am having a home in Los Angeles.
The host cancelled the booking 10 days before the arrival date.
Good location but a bit untidy.
Everything is perfect for me. Staying with her is very memorable. I'd like to be back home again to meet her, Rick and a cut cat!
Great bed, good room, spacious house, nice leafy well-off neighbourhood – only a short walk to the bus that takes to you to either Santa Monica or the nearest Expo Line train station.
I was usually out all day and come home quite late at night so didn’t have the chance to talk as much as I would with homestay.
But what chances I did have to converse with her and her husband were very good. Debra is nice and generous with cookies too.
I very much enjoyed my stay and the kind, considerate and elegant presence of Debbie and Rick. I wish I had had more time to connect with them as they are both wonderful, interesting people! Their home is spacious, quiet and comfortable with a beautiful garden to relax in and you will surely enjoy staying with them as much as I did!
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Debbie is a super nice host, she has a cute cat, and the cookies she made are super delicious, will come and visit again!
