Casa Formosa Bedroom & Bath Suite
|Address||N. Formosa, 90036 Los Angeles, United States|
|Property type||Private room|
|Response time||A few hours|
We have made "Casa Formosa" a design home that reflects our tastes and creates a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere (or "vibe" as we say in California). Our guests experience a premium boutique hotel "feel" - at a non-premium rate - in their private upstairs room and bathroom (with an optional office/2nd room available for an additional fee).
Guests share Casa Formosa with hosts Curtis & Osvaldo, but your upstairs room and bathroom suite are completely private. Hosts will never go upstairs unless needed by Guests. Guests and Hosts share the living room, kitchen and rooftop. Hosts' room is downstairs.
*Guest Suite is upstairs, above the living and dining areas. Windows face westward, overlooking a gorgeous jacaranda tree in the front yard, with a view of the Hollywood Hills to the north as well.
The bed has a high-end Queen mattress, covered with a protective hypo-allergenic cover, plus a mattress pad on top of that which is washed between guests. Firm and soft pillows are available, protected with hypo-allergenic/anti-dust mite covers.
[An Optional 2nd guest room/office is available for an additional $45/night. It is also upstairs, adjacent to the primary guestroom, and includes a futon couch/bed and work desk. A perfect option if you need an office work space, or for 2 guests desiring separate rooms, or for a 3rd guest.]
*The Rooftop is accessed from our backyard. The spectacular 360º city-view includes the Griffith Observatory, Hollywood Hills (and Hollywood Sign in winter when tree leaves have fallen), downtown, Sunset Strip, Century City, Getty Museum, the Grove, Wilshire Blvd., and stunning sunsets. View the city by day...and then by night with a bottle of wine! It's a one-of-a-kind feature in our neighborhood.
*Living Room & Kitchen areas are shared with Hosts. There is space in the cupboard and refrigerator if needed. Complementary coffee and tea from the Keurig Machine, filtered water from refrigerator dispenser, access to Microwave oven, dishes, glasses, etc.
*Internet & Cable TV: House-wide Wireless Internet, TV in your room with premium cable channels (HBO).
*Rooftop: Access from the backyard with 360º city view.
*Parking: You will receive a Preferential Parking Permit for ample and safe street parking in front of the house (Be careful to not block any neighbor's driveways, or you might be towed!)
**Interaction with your Hosts**
We will welcome you when you arrive, help you with anything you require, then leave you to your privacy as we stay downstairs. We are happy to interact but are otherwise unobtrusive, remaining respectful of your agenda and privacy.
At the same time, please don't hesitate to text, call, or seek us out if you have a question, can't find something, something isn't working, or if we've overlooked anything. It is not intruding on us, and we don't want you to forego any comfort simply because you don't want to "bother" us!
*Our dog, Ichi is a 13-year old Westie, very sweet, clean and quiet. She never goes upstairs into the guest space, is not allowed on furniture, and we will never ask you to be responsible for her. If you are not a "dog person" we will not be offended. Just let us know your concerns and we will minimize or eliminate your interactions with her by restricting her access to the Hosts' downstairs living quarters.
Mid-City area, in northeast corner of Fairfax District. Our local neighborhood is known as the "Melrose Shopping District" bordered by Hollywood, West Hollywood, and Hancock Park.
*Neighborhood: We love living in our home, we love our safe neighborhood with its walkability to restaurants, quirky Melrose boutiques, and upscale shopping on Beverly or La Brea, and most if all we love our central location -- nothing in Los Angeles is too far away to visit.
House rules*Check-in/out times can be flexible, but if other guests come or go the same-day, we will need time to prepare the suite.
*Security: Come and go as you like, but always close and lock front door. No visitors without advance consent, please.
*Tidiness: Please leave all common areas as you found them, and use care with wood floors (e.g., moving furniture, rolling suitcases, beach sand, shoes that leave marks)
*Cooking: We encourage you to try L.A.'s many wonderful restaurants and take-away meals! If you do wish to prepare some meals at home, especially during longer stays, please keep it simple and leave the kitchen as clean as you found it.
*Smoking: Please do not smoke on the property, including the rooftop.
*California Drought: We are under heavy restrictions during this emergency. Please help conserve water during your stay with us!

Reviews of this property
The room is really cute and conformable, as all the house! Te terrace has incredible views to LA and the location is perfect!!
About Curtis and Osvaldo (and of corse Ichi).... wow SIMPLY THE BEST!!
They took care of us since the first momento, giving us all the details about the house and the city making us feel like at home!!
We stayed five nights and had a wonderful time at Osvaldos place. It was such a great location. We could easily walk around cool areas around Melrose and to the Grove. Osvaldo was a great host. The room was so nice and clean and very quite. We would definitely stay there again! Miss LA already!!!
With Osvaldo Curtis and it was much appreciated. The house and the rooms were very clean and tidy.
Both owner were extremely friendly and helpful, what. Just for those unfamiliar advantageous as we are, Also Ichi, the little dog was friendly, genuine knuffig and has in no way disturbed us, what does it matter that it is well behaved.
The rooftop terrace had we not used very often, because it was very fast cold evening, but the view is fantastic and in the summer it will probably be very nice to spend the evening there.
The environment was quiet and well maintained, shops were easily accessible.
We can recommend this hotel highly and consider myself to come back.
Bei Osvaldo und Curtis hat es uns sehr gefallen. Das Haus und das Zimmer waren sehr sauber und ordentlich.
Die beiden Vermieter waren äußerst freundlich und hilfsbereit, was gerade für ortsunkundige von Vorteil, wie wir, ist. Auch Ichi, die kleine Hündin, war freundlich, echt knuffig und hat uns in keinem Fall gestört, was daran liegt, dass sie gut erzogen ist.
Die Dachterrasse habe wir zwar nicht sehr oft genutzt, da es abends sehr schnell kalt wurde, aber der Ausblick ist fantastisch und im Sommer wird es wahrscheinlich sehr schön sein, die Abende dort zu verbringen.
Die Umgebung war ruhig und gepflegt, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten waren gut erreichbar.
Wir können diese Unterkunft sehr empfehlen und überlegen selber wieder zu kommen.
Wir hatten eine super schöne Zeit in Los Angeles bei den beiden. Für meinen Mann und mich eine absolute zehn. Sehr sauber und ordentlich und sehr liebevoll eingerichtet.
Die Lage ist super und der Blick von der Dachterrasse, bei einem Glas Wein, ist unbezahlbar.
Wir kommen gerne wieder und haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt.
Danke für die schöne Zeit bei Euch
La casa estaba en un area cercana a la zona de tiendas de Beberly Hills y Melrose Av pero a su vez en un barrio tranquilo. Pudimos usar la cocina para desayunar sin ningún problema. Si algún amigo me preguntara lo recomendaría seguro.
