We have enjoyed having Benjamin stay with us both times he has been here in LA. As he noted our Bungalow is private and nestled on a quiet street. It is a perfect getaway from a busy day of activities in Los Angeles. But as the song says “Nobody walks in LA”. But within a few minutes most of Los Angeles is at your fingertips.
