The space

Set back from the road on a tiny cul-de-sac, this little (900 sq ft) Lincoln Heights Spanish home is in a surprisingly rural part of Los Angeles. Only 4 miles from downtown, it sits between two undeveloped hills (one of which is Ascot Hills Park) and feels relatively peaceful. It's not exactly a hip area but it's relatively calm, although you will probably hear the neighbor's dogs and roosters from time to time. There are plenty of open places to walk and jog nearby, with great views of the city. An avocado tree on the property and one on the neighbor's property keep the house pretty cool on the inside without the need for air conditioning. They also bestow the makings for great guacamole.

There are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen-size bed and the other with a pull out, queen-size couch. There is also a couch in the living room. There's a full kitchen, including a dishwasher and BBQ, as well as a washer and dryer in the garage. You're welcome to contribute your kitchen scraps to our compost.

There is space for 1 car in the driveway. Extra cars will need to park on the street or arrange with us in advance.

House Rules

This is a pretty quiet neighborhood and we consider ourselves to be good neighbors. Since you are an extension of us, a general "Be nice" policy is in place.

Additionally in that spirit, our driveway is an easement through the neighbor's property. There will be one parking space available unless you arrange with us in advance. Please do not park below our property line or you will block the neighbors' access to their gate. If you need space for a second car, please let me know and we can try to arrange. Also, in rare cases, people end up blocking the entrance to our gate because street parking is hard to find. Just blow your horn and someone will come out and move the car. It can be a little annoying but people are always apologetic.

We have a dog, who will not be on the property at the time of rental, but if you are allergic, please take note. We do allow house trained dogs. Please, no smoking in the house.

We loved this house! The house is tucked into a corner of a cul de sac, so while there are people around, you feel very secluded with your own backyard and space. It's an easy drive to much of what Los Angeles has to offer. Inside the home is well crafted with love. We felt very comfortable there. Alisa was very specific and helpful with the instructions for the house, how to open the gate, how the faucet works, etc.

We were in town for the Rose Parade and the location of this house was perfect. The accommodations were as Alisa described and it was nice to come back to a home rather than a hotel. She was very responsive to all our questions and I would recommend this listing.

What a stylish house with really cool decor! Alisa's place is central to a lot of great Mexican restaurants, so my husband and I took advantage of that quite happily. We visited during an unusual cold spell but if you follow the directions in the handbook, you'll be able to stay warm no problem. Alisa was responsive to everything we needed and even though she was off-site, we felt super welcomed the whole time we were there.

Neighborhood is quiet and the rooms are neat. Enjoyed the stay. Only the heater worked very slow in those cold days.

Alisa's house is so lovely, we appreciated the hospitality, amenities, central location and community. The residence has so many nice details; the design scheme is wonderful - contemporary and comfortable, both cozy and spacious. You're in for a treat if you stay here!

Alisa's place is a charming and private haven tucked in the back of a cluster of houses. The home is exactly as described with all amenities needed! Alisa was immediately available by text to answer the few questions I had upon arrival. And she was even in touch by phone with one of her neighbors to be sure we got in ok! Excellent experience overall. :)
