Art Deco Master Bedroom Near Beverly Hills
|Address||S. Wooster St, 90035 Los Angeles, United States|
|Property type||Private room|
|Response time||A few hours|
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.
House rulesMy rules are simple. Treat my home as if it is your home. No smoking or pets, but you may entertains guests in the lovely back yard.

Reviews of this property
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.
ruhige Umgebung, geräumige Räume, grosses Bett, Bewegungsfreiheit im Haus, angenehme Atmosphäre, freundliche und sehr informativer Gastgeber ins gesamt der Gastgeber bekommt von uns 4 Sterne, sein Domizil 3,5 Sterne.
Bei einer Mitbenutzung, könnte das Badezimmer öfter gereinigt werden. Insgesamt wir haben unser Aufenthalt genossen.
Unfortunately we spent only 3 days in LA at Randy's. But it really payed off to stay at Randy. He is a great, helpful and open-minded guy and a pleasant host. Even long before we arrived he supported us with a vast amount of invaluable informations, tipps and insights. He gave us a warm welcome and made us feel at home. His house is a nicely decorated and furnished place, is perfectly situated between Beverly Hills/Hollywood and Santa Monica. We followed his suggestions of the Do's & Don'ts of LA and had three wonderful days (pretty different each). Don't be silly and ignore his helpful suggestions but just take your time to talk to him and you will receive funny and unique stories about nearly everything that might be of interest to you. Even before your stay he will provide you more material (his own, approved by his travelers!) than you could collect in a day at the Los Angeles Public Library ;-) He really loves LA, and who could be a better guide?
He is fond of company and loves to share things and experiences no matter what. We were really sad when we had to leave and desolate that we could not enjoy his beautiful, contemplative garden for another relaxing get-together. But if we should come to LA again (likely!) we would love to take Randy as the pivotal point of our trips again. Keep the spirit Randy!

Staying with Randy was the best decision we made. Since my cousin and I arrived to Los Angeles, we felt like we were at home thanks to Randy, who made us really comfortable in his house. The house is amazing, clean and it's in a lovely neighborhood. Randy knows every secret place of Los Angeles and has lots of interesting anecdotes about the city.
Nuestro viaje a Los Angeles no habría sido posible sin Randy, quien hizo que pasasemos una gran semana. Le estamos muy agradecido por todo lo que hizo. Además, habla muy bien español.
Thank you. Marc and Jordi.
Mein Haus ist Dein Haus! Mit diesen Worten empfängt mich Randy an der Haustür! Was für ein Empfang, und es waren nicht einfach leere Worte, sondern es war so gemeint! Desweiteren empfängt mich ein wunderbares Art-Deco Haus mit lieblich dekorierten Zimmern. Nach 30 Jahren Hotel-Erfahrung in LA eine neue Erfahrung für mich. Ich fühlte mich von der ersten Sekunde an zu Hause. Randy ist ein grossartiger Gastgeber der viele Insider-Tipps zu LA weiss und diese gerne weitergibt aber auch für Neues empfänglich ist. Thanks a lot Randy and take care!
The Best Ever!
Staying with Randy was such a good time we'll never forget! I visited Los Angeles with my friend Tom for the first time and since the first moment arriving at Randy's home we felt really comfortable - just like home coming. Randy is an exceptional amicable person with a wonderful house right next to Beverly Hills.
Randy lent us some selfmade booklets and shared his impressive knowledge for the trips around LA. For example an unforgettable area right next to the Hollywood sign with a nice view over LA.
Furthermore our host helped to receive my luggage from the airport because the airline did a mistake at repacking my luggage into the right plane. Thanks to Randy's enthusiastic telephone calls I got my case a few hours later and enjoyed my fresh clothes ;)
His wonderful, clean home is right next to all the sights like Hollywoods Downtown, Malibu, Santa Monica or Venice Beach. We recommend to rent a nice car if you want to visit all these nice places within 30 minutes.
Our one-week-trip ended with a lovely evening when Randy took us to a nice bar in Beverly Hills.
Thank you for the perfect time, all the interesting talks and your nice home - we would really love to come back as soon as possible!
Tom & Eric
Our stay was wonderful, Randy is really welcoming and his house is really enjoyable. We shared together such amazing moments that we won't forget. Randy was always there to give such great advice about where to go and what to see. We discovered wonderful place thanks to him !
We'd like to thank him to share christmas lunch with us and his family.
Thank you for all this good times spent together.
Séjour très agréable chez Randy qui est très accueillant et qui possède une maison agréable à vivre. Il nous à fait partager des moments merveilleux et inoubliable. Il n'hésite pas à nous conseiller sur les différents endroits à visiter et nous à fait découvrir des endroits super. Nous le remercions également pour nous avoir fait partager le repas de Noel avec sa famille. Merci pour tous ces bons moments.
Einem ist schon etwas mulmig zumute, wenn man zum ersten Mal anstatt ein Hotel zu buchen, sich bei einer Privatperson einmietet. Aber gleich bei der Begrüßung waren alle Zweifel verflogen. Randy ist eine sehr liebenswerte Person, die uns sofort mit offenen Armen und einer Umarmung empfangen hat.
Wir erreichten sein Zuhause an einem Feiertag und wurden sofort von ihm eingeladen, das Abendessen mit ihm und seiner Familie zu verbringen..
Er stand zu jeder Zeit für Fragen zur Verfügung und war sehr hilfsbereit. Aufgrund dieser Tätigkeit hatte er auch bereits diverse Broschüren, die er uns an die Hand geben konnte. Der Aufenthalt war super und wir stehen nach wie vor in Kontakt.
Wir hoffen, dass wir ihn irgendwann noch einmal wiedersehen werden...
