Historic, Renovated Boarding House On A Hill Overlooking Downtown LA

Located in: Los Angeles
Since 1998, we have provided a home away from home for hundreds of guests from around the world. Our refurbished, two-story 1923 craftsman home sits on a hill on a historic Koreatown street within walking distance of the "miracle mile" of Wilshire Boulevard and contains six bedrooms (two downstairs and four upstairs) and three baths (one between every two rooms), a well-equipped kitchen complete with dishwasher and plenty of pantry space, onsite coin-operated washer and dryer. Owners live in a separate house on property, supply sheets, towels and soap, iron and ironing board, Wifi, cable TV, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, eggs, bread and cereal, directions, tips. Grocery store is a half block away. Catalina House is blocks from the Redline Metro (subway) and the 101 and 110 freeways, street parking is available but there is a two-hour time limit without a permit. 24 hour guest parking passes can be purchased by owners with advance notice for $5 apiece. Uber, Lyft, and the expansive metro service make a car unnecessary. The historic Wiltern Theatre, Union Station, Universal City, USC, Hollywood Walk of Fame, LA County Museum of Art, La Brea Tar Pits and Peterson Automotive Museums, Farmers Market, hip clubs and restaurants and The Grove, LA's trendiest outdoor shopping mall are all twenty minutes to a half hour away by public transportation. There is a lovely brick patio in the back of the house where guests are welcome to sit, read, snack or smoke (no smoking in the house). No pets or toddlers, please. All rooms have Double or Queen size beds. English, Spanish, French, Portuguese and Italian are spoken and understood. Music and dancing encouraged. There is a playable piano and a dining table that comfortably seats 10 people in the dining room, plenty of dishes, cups, glasses and silverware and a positive energy about the place that comes from eighteen years of good times, conversation, comfort and conviviality. We discourage pets because many of our guests have had allergic reactions to fleas and we are not equipped for toddlers (unless parents come prepared with gates and high chairs) because of the rather steep flights of stairs in front of and inside the house. The house is not wheel-chair equipped. The neighborhood is intensely urban and English is only one of many languages spoken in the nearby stores and streets. The others are Spanish, Korean, Bengali, Thai, Tagalog and Armenian. There are churches, mosques and synagogues within walking distance. The gamut of cuisines and cultures is mind-boggling. In the past thirty years, we have seen Los Angeles develop from a rather laid-back, provincial collection of suburbs where no one walked and a good loaf of bread was hard to find to its current status as a cutting-edge cosmopolitan megalopolis.

***Second payment should be made by e-check (by a U.S. bank account) to avoid administrative fees.***
