|Address||S. Wooster St, 90035 Los Angeles, United States|
|Property type||Private room|
The master bedroom is your sanctuary with a brand-new, incredibly-comfortable California king-size bed and two plush, over-sized, leather club chairs. Enjoy TV, DVD, 15 mps high-speed wireless Internet. The (shared) bathroom is right next door and features a shower large enough to accommodate two and separate bathtub. Enjoy full kitchen access with a lovely Art Deco breakfast nook. Espressos, lattes, juicer, etc. and a blender for smoothies and/or Margaritas. Lovely formal dining room and a designer living room with fireplace, view of downtown, and 55-inch LED/LCD surround-sound, multimedia home theater. Brand-new steam-cleaning washer/drier has a quick steam refresh feature. No ironing! Beautifully landscaped back yard for lounging, drinking, dining, even entertaining.
I live two minutes south of BEVERLY HILLS just off the ultra-chic, celebrity-filled Robertson Blvd (much more hip than Rodeo Drive, but close to there too if you like), CENTURY CITY, WEST HOLLYWOOD and (if you prefer locals to tourists) the newly-refurbished CULVER CITY filled with European-style sidewalk bars, restaurants, multiplex movie theater, and the intimate (Art Deco) Kirk Douglas Theater if you prefer drama. Have a drink in the historic Culver Hotel where the Munchkins slept and notoriously partied (hard) every night while filming The Wizard of Oz. (Ruby slippers optional.) You are 15 minutes, but usually less, from everywhere else whether it be the AIRPORT (want me to pick you up?), DOWNTOWN, WESTWOOD (UCLA), HOLLYWOOD, VENICE, or SANTA MONICA. Virtually all of LA's many museums and attractions are within easy reach.
My "Pico/Roberson" neighborhood is quiet, classy, eclectic and ethnically-diverse with small, intimate restaurants ranging from Thai to Vietnamese, Chinese, Sushi, countless Kosher restaurants (including LA's first delicatessen), Kosher Mexican if you can believe that, authentic Mexican (duh!), French, Lebanese, bakeries galore, and even a hand-made ice cream and candy store. All are within walking distance. Elat, an unbelievable, multi-ethnic Middle-Eastern/Mediterranean supermarket is just up my street on Pico. (Great website!) Trader Joe's is five minutes away as is a more traditional Von's supermarket. Every Thursday, we have a terrific neighborhood Farmer's Market just a few blocks away featuring locally-grown produce.
A historically Jewish neighborhood (now ethnically diverse), countless synagogues are within walking distance, but so is St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church. And an Egyptian Coptic Church is right next door to an Indian Sikh Temple just a few blocks from my house. Talk about eclectic!
On the other side of Robertson is La Cienega's "Restaurant Row." Dining/theater options are limitless. Within minutes, you are cruising the historic Fairfax District: Little Ethiopia, Farmers Market, and The Grove's Shopping/Dining/Theater Complex. I am in the center of it all and for the most part you can avoid LA's notorious traffic by sticking to surface streets or rapid transit.
I am one short block from a major bus line and minutes from LA's new rapid transit rail system. Subways in LA? Who knew? An inexpensive "unlimited" day pass whisks you to USC and Exposition Park, Downtown, Hollywood, both the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys, Long Beach (The Queen Mary) and all parts in between. Don't miss the Watts Towers! Link to Central Station, another of LA's many magnificent Art Deco palaces, and catch a train to San Diego (short walk to Mexico), San Francisco, or even Portland and Seattle.
Or forget rapid transit and LA traffic entirely! Bring (or rent) a bicycle! I am one mile from the Ballona Creek bike path which carries you straight to Marina del Rey's beach bike paths south through the quaint coastal cities of Hermosa and Redondo Beach to the Palos Verdes Peninsula (and light house), or north through Venice and Santa Monica all the way to Pacific Palisades. Return to the Ballona Wetlands and allow the afternoon ocean breeze to push you all the way home. LA Fitness' premier workout facility (including large swimming pool, sauna, and jacuzzi) is four short blocks away.

Randy is a wonderful host! He was really helpful when we needed help. Our room was clean and nice we also enjoyed staying in our room watching netflix. Besides the traffic it was really fast to come to everything we wanted to see. We would always choose randys house again it felt like home.
The best decision you can make is to choose Randy's home. I have been there for 15 nights and I really enjoyed every minute. Randy is a very smart person and a wonderful host. He has an answer for every question and he is always here to help. The house is beautiful and you feel like you have found a new home. I'm looking forward to come back to you as soon as possible. Thank's for everything, Randy !!
Randy is AMAZING. Best host we have had so far with Wimdu! If you have the chance to travel to LA go there and you will feel like home.
Randy is a great guy ! He knows everything on LA and his advises are very very good.Trust me, you won't be disappointed !
Go in Randy's house.. Then It will be your second house.
Randy if you read this message, thank you for everything.
What can I say - it was just perfect. When we had arrived, Randy explained us everything in his house, so it was easy to find one's bearings. The house was so nice... The room was quite comfortable and the location was great, so Downtown and Beach could be reached in thirty minutes by bus. The kitchen has been large and nothing was missing, cooking was also pleasant. So, Rand: We'll see you again!
Casa particular en una zona tranquila y bastante cerca de todo. Randy es muy acogedor y desde el primer momento te sientes como en casa. Además puede recomendarte cualquier cosa sobre Los Angeles, sitios que visitar, restaurantes,... Se nota que le encanta su ciudad y lo hace con mucho gusto. Recomendable 100%
There would be nothing more to say, but since this is a review, here we go:
Randy was the best host we had so far. He will do everything that you have a great time in LA. And he has many informations and recommendations that will give you the opportunity to explore LA not only as a tourist.
Randy is very comunicative and he knows some good stories to tell, if you would like to talk to your host, if you won't force you into it. :-)
The house is worth a stay as well. You can use the kitchen, have a nice backyard which is a beautiful place for having your meals and the shower is very comfi, and so is the bed.
And it is perfectly located to reach the different places in LA (short times to the beaches, to downtown and Hollywood...)
Next time in LA we will definitely try to get a room at Randy's again!
Hope to see you in Germany, big guy!
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour chez Randy, dans sa maison bien située, calme et accueillante. Randy nous a donné de précieux conseils afin de rendre notre séjour intéressant à la découverte de la culture américaine, du mode de vie, ainsi que la ville de L.A.
Our decision to stay with Randy' was a good one for several reasons. Firstly, Randy is a very friendly and cooperative person. If you like, he offers you lots of great advice regarding L.A. and its surronding. Randy has even mastered various sightseeing broshures. You can borrow it from him anytime. Secondly, the house and our room were clean and nice. The bathroom and kitchen were convenient und well equiped. Finally, Randy's house is perfectly located. It is just a couple of minutes to Beverly Hills and a short drive to the beach. Hollywood and Universal Studios are not too far away, as well. My husband and I definitely recommend to stay at Randy's.
