About This Listing
Our secluded and shaded cabin is only a mile away from Beverly Hills, 8 from the beach, and 9 from Downtown. Close to the freeway but distant enough away to be peaceful. Enjoy a respite from the congestion when you return after a hard day!
Tucked away in a shaded wooded backyard lies your retreat from the bright L.A. sun. Centrally located, steps away from main bus routes, yet located in suburban Beverlywood and shielded from the big city noise, our back house cabin is the perfect place for retiring after a hard day touring or conducting business.
The cabin has its own entrance and comes with wireless access, as well as a large screen monitor you can plug your laptop into for Internet videos or Netflix. The property has plenty of parking.
The cabin comes with a queen bed and a comfortable pull-out couch. We can accommodate additional sleepers with a mattress or sleeping bags.
Our outdoor firepit is open for your use (fires or cooking). There also is a kitchenette area with a burner and a refrigerator for your use. Please feel free to borrow our bicycles for a bike around the city (Beverly Hills is only one mile away and the bike path to the Pacific Ocean is even less than that). Iron and ironing board are also available for your use, along with once-a-week laundry on multiple night stays. We know that it's hard to travel with a lot of the amenities of home and we hope to make those available to you. Let us know what you might need ahead of time and we will try to have it ready.
Our goal is to make your stay as comfortable and worry-free as possible.
Quiet, suburban streets in the midst of the urban jungle. Perfect for day or night walks or just sitting and listening to the sounds of the birds and neighborhood critters.
Multiple bus lines from two transit authorities run up and down Robertson Boulevard, half a block away. The Metro Green Line station is a mile away. We will be happy to introduce you to Lyft and Uber for personal cab service and one free ride through a trusted Lyft driver.
Other Things to Note
We apologize for having to put this in details instead of pricing, but AirBnB has not yet devised a system where we can change the pricing for one-night stays. Our price for one-night stays is $80 as opposed to the usual $70 rate to make up for the extra work involved in the quick turn-around on both ends. When you book a one-night stay we will counter with a special price of $75 which you may or may not accept. Thank you for understanding.
Also, sorry parents, but babies are people too! That said, we'd love to have you, and might have some special supplies for you, but please request, e.g., booking for three if there's two parents a kid (or four for two parents and two kids).
Please be refrain from public use of profanity. Please turn off lights and other appliances when you leave for extended periods. Out of respect for your privacy, we will never enter your room to turn off appliances left on during your stay.
We have a pet bunny right now living in the backyard, so please make sure to close the gate when you come and go. :)
Pets will only be allowed under specified circumstances and will never be allowed inside the cabin. If pets are brought into the cabin without permission a minimum $50 cleaning fee will be withheld from the security deposit. However, we do have a large enclosed yard that your pet is free to roam in safely.
We enjoyed our stay in the cabin. The owners were easy to reach and cared very much that our needs were met. The location was nicely central for where we wanted to go, in Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and the coast. The cabin is small but cozy, but since we spent very little time there it was just fine for us. It is a quiet spot as well, with lots of parking space, and easy to find. The willingness of the Zarmi family to accommodate our needs (including some flexibility with checkin/checkout) makes this a very good place to stay.
If you have business in Culver City and want a low key rental, this spot is for you. No frills, or tv/Internet. Very quiet, great location close to downtown. David and Tara were very accommodating, they even offered to mail me my phone charger after it had been left behind.
While Tzepi was very friendly, and the parking was very easy, we ultimately don't recommend this place. The photos are very misleading. Entering the cottage, you walk through an area that feels like a junkyard, and the cottage itself is furnished with the most thread bare and dilapidated furnishings. You feel like you are staying in someone's storage shed. And the bed is not a queen, but a standard double, pushed against the wall, so very uncomfortable if you are two people.
:( It's reviews like this that throw you for a loop as a host. I specifically asked if everything is okay, and the response was, it's great. No idea how to respond, but the furniture in the unit is the same furniture in the picture, and we absolutely do not want it to feel like a storage shed -- and there is no reason for it to be..wish I knew what makes it feel that way. We really hope our guests let us know if they are unhappy, and if they are what specifically bothers them so we can do better.
David and Tara were great hosts! They went out of their way to meet our check-in time needs. The place is also great very quiet cabin in the backyard but good located so it is easy to get around the city. The place was equipped with everything we needed. Parking is also painless. This place will be my first choice next time I come to Los Angeles.
David's cabin was our first stay in L.A. after a 11 hour flight. He arranged that the place was ready for us right when we arrived from the airport which we really appreciated.
The condo was very clean and to me it seemed more spacious than the pictures would tell you. David and his wife also gave us some good sightseeing tips for L.A.
Considering the free parking this place is an excellent location for getting to know the L.A. area.

About the Host, David
My wife Tara and I are a fun-loving couple who are new to home-ownership. We both have an intimate knowledge of Los Angeles (Tara is a native Angelina, while I have a tourist's eye as a Wisconsin native). We look forward to getting to know you or giving you complete privacy as you prefer. Our goal is to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
I work as a prosecutor for the California Department of Justice while Tara works part-time as a legal consultant. We enjoy hiking the wild areas of Los Angeles, taking in the best beaches, staying up with the latest movies, and just sitting by the fire having a drink.
