About the Homestay
I live in my 3 bedroom home in east hollywood with two permanent roommates who both work full time. I work part time outside and also do work at home on my computer set up in what used to be the 'breakfast nook' area...there is a dining room however and a nice patio setting out front of the house. I have wifi so you can sit outside and do work on your laptop if you desire. I am about a 200 feet from the bus stop on Melrose Avenue and there are small markets within a block or two of my house. I am very familiar with the area and Hollywood so I can show you around and give you directions for the metro rail to go downtown, to Hollywood and Highland, Santa Monica and the beach areas or Universal City and NoHO.
English is spoken in my house. I do not have an extra parking space behind my home at this time but I could allow you to park behind me if you have a rental car.

Please use both locks on the front door when entering or leaving the house. Ask me if you need extra heat and/or blankets in the winter time or cooling fans in the summertime. The kitchen and refrigerator is shared by everyone in the house so please clean up after yourself! Do not invite strangers over--please ask permission if you have a friend coming over. I have a washer and dryer in the service room and I can show you how to use them.
Smoking is not allowed.
