My daughter stayed for approximately 6 weeks for a nearby summer internship. We were worried as she was from out of town and would be alone. However, Vicky and her family made her feel welcome & safe. The place is just lovely and super central. We took nearby bus to explore LA. Rodeo drive, Santa Monica Pier, Korea town, ect, My daughter would actually refer to Vicky as her LA mom, because she would always Check in on her & make sure she was ok.
