Uber is in the area but I'm not sure about Lyft as I have never used it. There are taxis as well but they are not very reliable and are very expensive

There are 3 different buildings. The main building (northeast), the one story garden building (on the southwest side of the property) and the two-story Homestead building (northwest). Both the Garden and Homestead are about the same distance away from the main road. The Garden is the farthest away from any road (the Homestead are closer to El Bonita avenue, which doesn't get much traffic).
