This is ideally for millennial Artist, Writers, Actors, Students, Musicians, entrepreneurs or long term traveler/explorers. We have super cozy, clean, friendly and more spacious rooms and storage space for luggage and guitars, surf boards, bikes than most boutique Hostel/Dorms in L.A. Proper. We have a 7 foot Iron Fence with key-code deadbolt entry points that keeps the Property very Private and safe.

Property Maintenance interaction
Bi-weekly Maid, Julia! (3 years), House Manager's (2 years - who live on site, in their own private room) and I personally visit/work weekly to help out with all of them and my Lodgers when and before needed. We have great working relationships with our plumbers and electricians and appliance service technicians, who come super quickly for repairs compared to this city's real estate requirements. We manage this operation with the integrity of professional manner & philosophy; to sum it up, most of the Lodgers create their own events/thing while living at these houses. We, the main management are not there to babysit 24-7, but we are in communication with all living here indefinitely for Great guidance and patience. Everyone signs the house lease and is emailed the copy with all the common-sense house rule's basic manners. This is all written in pursuit of overall communal peace and communal feng shui success. Also everyone eventually knows me by face and I am there as for communicative guidance-support when needed per the living arrangements. That is the boring stuff.
Truly a Lot of films, music, ideas, art in general, saving on rent money, gaining knowledge for the city, wisdom and bonding and friendships are constantly happening here along these parts.
Other things to note
Fig - Honestly, a gem for people who would like to take advantage of super cheap L.A. rent in a huge gated property with huge Garden Privacy Walls. Guys and Girls. Separate Girl rooms and Guy Rooms and at times a Co-ed room. Girls have their own kitchen, but everyone can use the main larger kitchen downstairs. it is a real life Oasis for L.A. at this price and accommodations and staff. Showers run hot and appliances all work proper. Bus Stop one house down on a main road, newly paved, super close to new stadium and restaurants, Ross, groceries and USC police patrols and Downtown L.A./Subway that goes all the way to Hollywood and North Hollywood and soon to the beaches. Cheap Uber and lyft. Friends to car-pool. Ample street parking and hwy access.
Rose - Same as above, both are an Oasis, near-away from the mayhem of touristy and
seedy-ness side of Hollywood, the concrete jungle dessert of K-town, or Homeless over flow epidemic of Downtown and of course, the absurd renting prices trend set off by weho which has taken over L.A.! Yet, when there is a will, there is a way. So if you dreamed of living and working in L.A., this is a great place to become rooted.
Fig - Mostly family houses surround the property and some affordable car mechanic shops! The bars and restaurants of USC are 1 mile East on Figueroa St, on the way is the new California Banc Soccer Stadium and the mecca of Downtown Los Angeles is same Road about 3 more miles dead center. The USC LAPD police patrol and Vermont Harbor police patrol our area often. The neighborhood city lots over hear overall are very wide and spacious compared to 90% of L.A. Naturally, everyone new to the Lodge makes friends and in turn help each other quickly upon where to get things done near the Fig House. The Entire property is enclosed with tall iron fence with enormous thorned bougainvillea bushes that have tons of flowers surrounding the Lodge with tiki fence filling in the gaps. Lot's of space to stretch out at this property compared to many other shared living properties locations. More importantly way cleaner and cozier with no crazy-lazy landlord leaving you in the dust with 20 plus or worse, micro managing it with little common sense for the art of.. Our Fig house manager, Maid, and Property manager is enough to keeping Fig Beautiful and breezy.
