We are an adult couple. We had booked Karens place for 5 nights as the final stop after crossing US, planning to relax and spend quite some time on the beach and seing whatever LA has to offer.
Karen is a really nice and welcoming person, and communication went smooth. We asked for a fan for the room and got it. All good.
You will be living in a private room in Karens home, sharing bath, kitchen and living rooom. This is all OK.
BUT: the bed situation not OK for 2 persons. The 'main' bed is max 40" wide. We tried to sleep 2 persons in it for 3-4 hours, and I believe I actually fell asleep, but this bed is simply not large enough for 2. Then there is a sofa, but it is really soft, so it's not good to sleep in.
After one night we ended up finding a hotel with a good bed and a not-so-good location as this was a better compromise as a bad bed and good location for us.
The traffic in LA is ridiculous, and location is therefore really important. 20 miles transport will often take an hour. The location of Karens place is good, and if you stay alone or can live with the described beds, you will be happy here.
