About the Homestay
Book at least for one month & you will like to extend your stay or become our regular guest, most guests do it.
Your home away from home is in Los Angeles California in a quiet and safe area called Silver Lake located between downtown LA and Hollywood. Come stay with us for a few days and then you may decide to extend your stay with us, most people tell us that they don't want to leave our place, they get very comfortable with us.
My family and I have live in the Silver Lake area for the past 30 years and 26 residing in this house.
Family members are my husband Ricardo "Ricky Rock" musician, my son Riccardo who is a professional film camera operator, my daughter Marcy who is attending music school, my children and husband are music talented.
Your bedroom has a full size real and comfortable bed, with it private restroom, private entrance, a small fridge, air conditioning, clean sheets, towels, shampoo, conditioner and all the essentials.
The house has a big front yard with all kinds of trees and flowers. We have 2 dogs their names are "Sammy" a male German Shepherd, "Rain" a young sweet and energetic mix Greyhound/Doberman. Sorry but we don't accept pets as guest. If you have a service dog be aware that 1 of our dogs is territorial with other animals.
This is a musical talented family, and we have all kinds of instruments, guitars and guitar bass (more than all my fingers), drum sets, violin, piano, and keyboards, most of them are in the back of the home recording studio which is sound proof.
We all speak English, Spanish and dad also speaks Italian. As a family we have traveled to many exciting countries in America, Europe and Asia.

It was nice meeting you Isabel
We loved the place and we are planning to stay there again sometime soon
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Isabel and Ricki are the sweetest and most gentle hosts I’ve ever encountered. I’d give them 10 stars for their hospitality, their friendliness and the beauty of their home alone!
We had a wonderful stay at Isabel's place, the hosts are very nice, welcoming and helpful. The house is nice, clean and comfortable. The area (Silverlake) is very well located in Los Angeles. I recommend.
Great experience! Very lovely family. I had a beautiful stay in Sikver Lake! I would love to come back again! I can recommend her to everyone.
Delightful stay! Sweetly responsive and beautiful hosts. It was the perfect location and space.
I stayed for 2 weeks in this beautiful paradise with the most amazings owners. Felt immediately at home, in love with the lush garden, the 2 dogs, my room and patio. I had a lot of privacy, but if I wanted to I could connect with other people staying there.
The location is supercentral, a 5 minute walk for a bus to downtown, or 15 minute walk for the subway that brings you to almost every corner of LA.
I will definitely be back and for sure stay at this place, highly recommended!!
Very nice and trustful person
Isabel and Ricky picked up my daughter at the airport and she stayed overnight. Despite the trouble of delaying the arrival of the luggage, they waited with her until the arrival of the luggage while driving during that time. She was able to stay at the house with great kindness, quick response to questions, and peace of mind. The room was very clean and she was able to stay comfortably. Thank you very much.
Isabels place is a great oasis of a place if you stay. Small fridge and bathroom but full of light if you want it and private if you need it. She’s a great host.
