About This Listing
California dreaming? Come to this clean, tranquil relaxing guest wing with wifi, free parking and laundry on site!
**** EVERYTHING BELOW IS INCLUDED IN NIGHTLY RATE! ****
If you dream of experiencing an artistic, slightly vintage California vibe…. If you’d like to enjoy a freshly brewed coffee on your own private back patio overlooking a yard full of lemon trees and roses, then this is the rental for you!
Why pay through the nose for a tiny hotel room with no kitchen, room taxes, valet fees, laundry issues and wifi fees when it's all included with us?!
The guest wing is attached to our main house through the laundry room (yet it's private with 2 separate entrances). It features a large master bedroom with french doors to a private patio, a den with pull out couch, a fully equipped kitchenette in the den with dishwasher, stove and microwave, and a bathroom with a big walk in shower.
The place is large and spacious for one, perfect for two and it's possible for a third person such as a child to sleep on the pull out couch in the den for stays of a week (more than that and you may feel cramped! You have been warned!) The wing is not really suitable for entertaining dinner guests and is more of a retreat.
Our guest house provides all the comforts of home -- high speed WIFI, 42inch HDTV with DirectTV, DVD player and DVD library, access to the Laundry Room with washer/dryer, back patio with 2 person bistro table, a work desk, ample closet space and easy and free street PARKING.
We also aim to provide you with some of the touches of a hotel. Waffle weave robes, ample towels, cuisinart appliances, free coffee or tea and your choice of milk... please make sure to specify your preferences, after you book!
We provide you with the staples to prevent you wasting money on stuff you can't carry home: olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper, seasonings, laundry detergent, soap, paper towels....and there's an iron and mini board, hairdryer and straightener too!
The furniture is from CB2 -- Crate and Barrel's younger, happier sibling -- and the new platform Queen Bed with tufted linen headboard is from Charles P Rogers in NYC.
DISABLED ACCESS : The guest house is all one level with one private french door entrance which can be accessed down the left side of the house from the front lawn if you desire total privacy. It also has easier senior or disabled access through our back yard. We don't mind you walking through at all! We like to say hello as we bump into you but we will give you your privacy.
CLEANING. No smokers please. Before and after your stay, the place will be professionally deep cleaned. For long stays of a month we'll throw an extra clean in for free when our main house is done.
THE AREA: Hollywood Hills East. For some reason this comes up on airbnb as Thai Town. It isn’t --- but Thai town, with great food and great (genuine!) massage is a few minutes below the house on Hollywood Blvd. The house is perfectly situated in the Hollywood foothills – you can walk to bus stops if you need, but you still get that green, lush vibe missing in many LA areas. Even if you don't rent a car you can still reach the following with great ease --- supermarket and shops 3 minutes walk --- Los Feliz Village (like an old fashioned US Main Street for a younger crowd) – fifteen minutes walk ---- all the mainstream attractions of Hollywood Blvd and the Academy Awards area, fifteen minutes walk.
This is a safe, classy yet relaxed neighborhood, perfect for either a retreat or to hit the studios!
It’s just ten minutes over the hill by car or taxi to Universal, Disney or Warner’s. Ten minutes down to Paramount. One mile to the Hollywood Bowl. 25 minutes on the freeway will get you down to the beach. Strike out twenty minutes down through West Hollywood to the sleek attractions of Beverly Hills. Walk ten minutes to the Red Line Subway and explore Downtown or Pasadena...
Or just lounge around at home, chat on the patio and enjoy free organic lemons from the yard!
If you’re serious about reserving I will answer many more questions for you and help you plan your visit.
Look forward to hearing from you!

Interaction with Guests
We always like to greet you when you check in or soon after and are available by text or in person when we're around for any of your needs or questions during your stay..
One of LA's best walking neighborhoods, close to Griffith Park and all the tourist and business attractions too!
Subway is walkable. DASH bus to Los Feliz village stops at the bottom of the street. LA bus system is accessible if needed. A car is always recommended in LA!
It's fine to have a friend over for tea, but this is not suitable for gatherings --- the guest wing is a quiet base for one or two people. There are many places to meet friends at the bottom of the street and we can recommend nice restaurants close by!
If you are a long term guest and would like a friend to stay on your pull out couch for a night or two, please ask us first so we don't get a shock when we run into them!
No smoking on the premises. No candles or incense. We had a recent guest burn holes in the bedding...it could have got really ugly:(
Please, no pets on the beds... And of course no dog poop or pee in the yard! It will kill the lawn. There is an enormous park up the hill.
As the carpets are light colored please don't wear soiled outdoor shoes inside.... Heavy staining will incur a $85 cleaning fee from Mandrake the Carpet Man... :)
--a white stray cat might appear in the yard. he's not ours and he has never been inside!
Even better than I expected. Zoe and Patrick are a delight- always available for questions and extremely sweet. The best surprise was the amazing gardenia smell throughout their entire yard. Amazing! They had coffee and a few accoutremants that made me instantly comfortable. Great bed, great tv, great shower- seriously everything I would ever want. I will definitely stay again my next time in LA!
Zoe and Patrick were lovely hosts and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Their apartment is exactly as described and sitting in the morning sun with coffee and pumpkin bread from the local monestary made our visit lovely.
The location was perfect for us. My husband had a 15 minute walk to work in Hollywood and I had Griffith Park just a couple of blocks away for daily runs. Franklin Village, restaurants and a grocery store were walkable easy minutes away.
Know that you are attached to the family home and your front doorstep is essentially their outdoor living room. You will hear them in the morning, but by and large, you have your own little slice of Hollywood away from the hustle, noise, and dirt of the tourist area.
Zoe and Patrick are absolutely the best hosts anyone could expect. Great neighborhood located near everything. Close to Freeways, more restaurants ten you could count, great shopping, and very accommodating. We had our privacy yet they were around and responsive if necessary. The rental is well equip with all the basic needs. Very comfortable bed and the Morning sun on the patio was just what we needed. Grapefruit, orange and lemon trees were full of fruit and provide a perfect frame for the rear yard. A comfortable place to stay!
We loved staying at Zoe & Patrick's guest house! It was the perfect place for our extended stay as we transitioned from our cross-country move. Zoe, Patrick and adorable baby Orla are so lovely and could not have done more to make us feel welcome. Their home is so peaceful and so absolutely charming. We could have stayed longer and were sad to go. It was the best Airbnb experience and we are so grateful to have had such an amazing experience!
This was my first experience with airbnb... Zoe and Patrick were the perfect hosts and the accommodations were exactly what I needed: charming, quiet, clean, and felt like home.
This guest wing is perfect! It's clean, cozy, comfortable, private and has everything you need. Zoe & Patrick couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. Last minute extension to my stay was handled gracefully without a bump and they provided all the essentials, literally. The location was terrific for me, just a street from Griffith Park. Great food at the end of the street from Thai to healthy organic/vegan. I wish it were closer to the freeway but if you're not there for work, that shouldn't be an issue.
My wife and I decided on this visit to the US we would try airbnb for the first time.
We found this gem - Charming, Calming Guest Wing in L.A. The property is exactly as the description on airbnb. Its a very spacious, comfortable and clean self contained private 1 b/r apartment. After our days out, we truly felt as though we were coming home, not as you would coming to a hotel room. This experience has convinced us to stay in other airbnbs on future visits abroad.
Located in a beautiful leafy street in Hollywood, convenient to supermarkets, dry cleaners and restaurants. The hosts, Zoe and Patrick are a lovely couple, Zoe took time out of her schedule to spend time giving us some great ideas on what to see and do in LA. We crammed in as much as we could in the short time we where there.
Highly recommended to travellers seeking privacy and convenience in a great part of LA.
Thank you Zoe & Patrick for your wonderful hospitality. We hope to visit next time we're in LA.
