Nice and welcoming, however, I did not know it was a triplex until we arrived. Once there, very nice

  • 4 of 5

Easy access from freeways, and was very clean. I would definately offer this triplex and would consider using it again next time I'm in the area.

Great deal for the money

  • 4 of 5

For the amount you pay and to be in the LA area, this was a very good deal. The apartment cute and quaint - very basic but comfortable. Comfortable beds, new blankets, linens, towels, a comfortable air mattress and 2 futons in the living room for more sleeping accommodations (nice pads available to place on futons making it pretty comfortable to sleep on), and working A/Cs (a godsend); it worked out just fine for a family with grown kids who just needed a place to sleep, eat, and shower. Close to laundry mat, gas station and Hispanic market. A short drive to Ralph's (grocery store). Super close to 405 freeway. Easy check in and check out. Don't expect a whole lot of room and luxury - no cable, DVD player, no yard (very small area in back). I found the neighbors to be friendly and the felt comfortable in the working class neighborhood. We would have paid more staying at a Motel 6 and still have no kitchen to work with so it was indeed a good deal for us. No regrets!

About Sheri West

I am so excited to start meeting new people from all around the world! I have a husband from Thailand and two grown kids in college. We all love to travel and learn about new cultures. I have lived in Los Angeles all my life (born and raised) and would be happy to answer any questions! Also, my son is a "foodie" and knows all the best places to eat!

Sheri West purchased this bungalow in 1998

Why Sheri West chose Lake Balboa

This cottage is in the heart of the San Fernando Valley and is no more than 20 minutes from all of Los Angeles' best attractions! Super convenient location, next to the 405 and 101! I haven't heard anything but great feedback from my guests and I enjoy meeting people from all over the world! Friendly neighbors, but still private :) I am a wonderful host, I can promise you I do just about anything I can to make you comfortable. The neighbors are also very friendly.
