The Space

For those who have happily rented our main house 'Hollywood Hills Charmer' since 2008 --- we proudly present our latest addition to airbnb -- the guest wing!


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?!

Our wing is attached to the main house through the laundry room (yet it's totally 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.

It is perfect for those needing less space than the main house and who are on a tighter budget. 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 under a week (more than that and you may feel cramped! You have been warned!) It's 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 premium DirectTV, DVD player and DVD's, 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, soft linens, ample towels, cuisinart appliances, free fresh 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 and linens are 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 from the front left of the main property if you desire total privacy. It also has easier senior or disabled access through another door into 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 the 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!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I had a wonderful experience in the guest wing of Zoe and Patrick Green's home. The wing was very spacious and comfortable, and was very private and quiet. The bed is very comfortable and fluffy and the citrus trees and private porch area added charm and comfort. This was a home away from home and was very centrally located in Hollywood. Zoe and Patrick were incredibly kind and hospitable, and very accessible if I needed anything during my stay. I recommend this home to anyone. It was a comfortable, homey and wonderful experience.

  • Great stuff!

  • (email hidden)! Sunshine, lush gardens and a wonderful private garden patio that opens with french doors from the bedroom.. The place is furnished in a modern style that is functional with lots of little extras for convenience. Zoe is a lovely woman who really cares about her guests. We have experienced a number of Airbnb's and this was one of the finest. Just a great neighborhood too! You can walk to all kinds of fun restaurants and shops in nearby Franklin Village.

  • My father and I had a lovely stay with Zoe and Patrick and really enjoyed our time there. They had thought of everything and we were very comfortable. I slept in the pull out sofa and my father had the queen bed. The lemon/fruit trees outside were great, we helped ourselves to the fresh fruit a few times to make juices. Very nice area and safe/quiet street. Kitchen had everything we needed. Thank you Zoe and Patrick for being so friendly to us!

  • Zoe and Patrick's guest 'wing' was perfect for our needs.
    I absolutely loved the fact you could walk everywhere!! Where in LA does that happen? :-)) Franklin Village is walking distance (all flat), Gelson's market is around the corner and there's a great coffee shop near by open from 7am-midnight. Don't forget The Hollywood Farmer's market on Sundays, 8am-1pm.
    The place is a one bedroom, however there was enough room to accommodate our 3 year old son in the same room with a blow up mattress that they supplied. It was super comfortable (even slept on it myself with the little one some nights). Nothing was a problem and they were very accommodating for any queries or needs we had.
    Kitchen is small but still is efficient. Bathroom is large and shower is a great size. Having a laundry was also great. All the usual items were on offer too, Cable TV and wireless internet. Lemon's galore and lovely garden. If traveling by yourself, it's also worth mentioning that you feel incredible safe being nestled within there property.
    We'll be back for sure!

  • Zoe and Patrick's place is the perfect spot to getaway in LA. The location is fantastic and the guest wing itself has everything you could need - great internet connection, cable TV, full kitchen, awesome shower and wonderful living space.

    As well as providing brilliant accommodation, Zoe and Patrick are fantastic hosts. Super approachable and always available should you have any questions and queries. I haven't had a better Air BnB experience and I look forward to staying with them again.

  • As the title is mentioned, Zoë and Patrick's place was a charming and calming guest house! The room is very clean and comfortable to stay in. There is a nice small patio in which you can enjoy relaxing outside.
    Access to stores, cafes, restaurants, and super market were great. They are so close that you can walk and get there. If you walk a little more, you can get to Hollywood Blvd and Vine Street, where there is Trader's Joe and the famous Hollywood!
    Last but not least, Zoë and Patrick were so nice and helpful. They were both friendly and always provided help when necessary.
    We would definitely would love to come back and stay again!

  • Zoe's and Patrick's place could not be more wonderful! One of the best neighborhoods n L.A. -- around the corner from a cluster of great shops and restaurants, beautiful old houses, walking distance from one of the world's great parks (Griffith), a short drive from the best of the city. The space itself is much bigger than it looks in the pictures. Airy, quiet, kitchen well-equipped, and you will never want to leave the private patio, with its orange tree, roses and floods of California sunshine. Zoe and Patrick were wonderful, friendly and inobtrusive hosts. The wireless is excellent, there are robes and slippers for your use, and the bed is one of the most comfortable we have ever slept on. In short: highest recommendation!!!

  • This wonderful guest wing is spacious, very clean and has a beautiful, private patio and garden. Zoe could not have been nicer and more accommodating and when I broke a glass soap dish Patrick was right there to clean up the shards. Wonderful place that I will certainly use again.

  • Outstanding, tranquil, independent apartment close to everything.
    Zoe & Patrick made sure everything was perfect.
    Sorry I couldn't enjoy it longer!
