About the Homestay
My wife and I live in a large 5 bedroom home in a very quiet and upscale neighborhood. We proud ourselves on being super-hosts. We treat every one as our own family. Please take a look at our great reviews! We can pick you up from the airport and make sure you have a stress free vacation or business trip. We can also give your great tips to see all of the amazing places Southern California offers. We speak English, Spanish & Italian Fluently.
Our home is near the four main freeways of Southern California so you can easily get anywhere you want quickly: from the beach to the snowy mountains. We are 30 minutes from the major theme parks such as Magic Mountain and Universal Studios and 45 minutes from Disneyland. And at night, we are 30 minutes away from the amazing Hollywood or Pasadena night life.
Plenty of street parking. Our neighborhood is very secure and privately patrolled daily. We are fluent in English and Spanish
We look forward in making you feel like close family.

Thanks you Frank ! You were very welcoming ad helpful quiet area thanks you for all I come back I would happy return at LA
I gave him one star because this is less choice and if there was less choice to have done
You will talk about Previous review, I'm also when you choose this house was based on
But this is what happened
first did not give me the room that you basically booked on homestay.com site
He gives me Abad room behind the kitchen door of inferior rear door open in front of me is not the slightest privacy, anyone can deliberately from inside the room on the road to open the door He told me Excuse me just two days where the room that you booked there by someone else but in fact, I waited by more than two weeks.
After more than two weeks ago told me Sandy if you want to go to the room you selected in the previous I told her yes, sure I basically do not like this room at all
But see what happened after that I tried more than once asked the main door key for the home of Sandy and francs, but I think he was afraid that give me the house key
Sandy told me that you can use the back door of the bad room key behind the kitchen to enter and exit
so the treatment of guests if it basically see you as a guest
See what happened after that they had renting the room for another woman when I returned from work and open the back door to enter and found a lady in front of me was a very embarrassing situation and I tried to explain to her that I held in the same house, but to no avail and refused me home and was forced to call Frank even telling her let him in he lives at home and waited for more than half an hour behind the door until the door opened and all that because he refuses to give me the main door of the house key
At the end of the day after finally leaving the house
just forgot my phone charger and some letters had been sent to me by mail
when I tried to contact him in order to send them to me said he was busy for at least two weeks and has no time to send them.
and when I told him that I can return to take my belongings on Sunday because he is of course day work off weekend told me that he will be busy mother 's day and I can leave it in hidden outside the house Is this a good treatment for guests,
I just want this month utterly blot out my memory.
Wir hatten eine sehr tolle Zeit und wurden herzlich empfangen. Auch auf unsere Sonderwünsche wurde sofort eingegangen. Die Kommunikation davor verlief problemlos. Ich kann diese Familie nur herzlich empfehlen.
My sister n I had an awesome stay with Frank n his wife. The house is beautiful and clean, room is spacious in a very nice quiet neighborhood n more importantly the feeling was welcoming :), because my sister n I traveled by ourselves they made us feel like we were @ our own home safe. The home is only a 20-25 minute drive away from Universal studios which was very convenient for us and very cheap on Uber if you have no car to get around. Frank n his wife were very helpful they even went out of their way to pick us up from the airport which was a 30-45 min drive depending on traffic (LAX airport). In addition they took us to shopping centers when they were available. Communication was great the room we rented was super cheap our privacy was well respected and I would highly recommend Frank n his family to stay with if your planning to stay in LA.....P.S Thank you Frank n ur wife for everything...we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you both and we cannot wait to visit you again on our next trip back. :)
Cindy y Frank muchas gracias por su hospitalidad Jeronimo y yo nos sentimos muy bien atendidos y felices un saludo y abrazos.
J'ai passé un excellent séjour chez Frank et Cindy, c'est un couple très accueillant qui m'a beaucoup aidé tout au long de mon séjour. Âgée de 18ans et voyageant seule leur aide et leur bienveillance a été bénéfique. Le logement est propre et agréable et le couple sympathique.
If you have a car it is very nice and convenient location. You can easy get in any place which you need. To stay with Frank family we understand they are very polite and opened. Big thanks them for everything.
The couple was so kind to us so my friend and I stayed here very comfortably for 6 nights.
The bed was big, and we had the kitchen to ourselves too so it was convenient as well. Also the cost, compared to any hotels in LA, was resonable which was great for students like us.
And there's planty of spaces to park in front of the house, so if you rented a car, this would be the right house to stay during your visit in LA!
Frank and Cindy were delightful hosts. The house is cosy and extremely friendly. We participated in a lovely hike and picnic which was fantastic. The access to the 5 different freeways close by gave us an opportunity to explore Los Angeles quite easily. We will definitely be back!
