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 wing is not suitable for entertaining dinner guests and is more of a personal 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 small bistro table, a work desk, ample closet space and easy and free street PARKING.
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! Towels and robes are also provided.
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 adult. There are many places to meet friends at the bottom of the street and we can recommend nice restaurants close by!
No extra non requested overnight guests.
No smoking on the premises. No candles or incense. We had a recent guest burn holes in the duvet which could have got really ugly:(
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 stray cat might appear in the yard. he's not ours and he has never been inside!
Welcome! We're British (she) and American (he) and we both write movies and tv for a living. We have a little girl, Orla.
We aim to make you feel welcome and comfortable in our space, whilst also leaving you alone to enjoy your time in LA! We are happy to help you figure out this vast town, either before or during your stay....
